Palin Fête Ronald Reagan on His 101st Birthday

Sarah Palin, you have embarrassed me and the GOP since 2008!

Today is Ronald Reagan’s 101st birthday, so some of America’s most ubiquitous figures are celebrating in the best ways they know how. Sarah Palin, for instance, republished a thing she wrote for Reagan’s birthday last year, posted a picture of herself on a horse, and misspelled the word “Americans” on Facebook.com/SarahPalin, the Common Sense of our era. The half-term Alaska governor wrote: “America remembers our beloved 40th president today! In honor of President Reagan’s 101st birthday, American’s [sic] For Prosperity put together this great video reminding us of the time-tested truths Reagan stood for.”

    I am so sick of this hero worship for Ronald Reagan. Besides, Sarah is just hoping someone remembers to write an oped rem mebering HER birthday this weekend (besides herself, of course.) Wanna bet she mentions it at CPAC?

    More revisionist history from the GOP regarding Reagan! Are they really so stupid as to think everyone has forgotten what happened during those years? One of the main reasons the economy got so much better was due to the dropping of the interest rates. We refinanced our home 3X during Reagan’s terms in office, freeing up income that went back into the economy in other ways, buying cars, appliances, taking vacations, etc. President Obama didn’t have the option of seeing interest rates drop. He inherited a far worse economy no matter what anyone says, along with two unfunded wars that the GOP tries to pretend is money that he spent.

    Reagan, the great sock puppet, raised taxes more than any modern presidents. “Read my lips” was the lie of the century just above Nixon’s “I’m not a crook,” Clinton’s “I didn’t have sex with that woman,” and Bush’s “Iraq has weapons of mass destruction.” The first thing that idiot Reagan did as governor of my state was to build himself a new mansion while returning a surplus to the people. He then raised state college and university fees, closed mental institutions because families should take care of their own, and created a whole new population of homeless by throwing those mentally ill people out on the streets. I would say that Palin’s lack of compassion is probably right in line with Reagan’s.

      I agree with you up until you compared Clinton’s sexual transgression to war, mayhem and greed. Clinton’s little tryst is nothing compared to what repugbaggers have done to the US and try to continued.

        Of course you are right. The point of including him was that these were all obvious lies. We knew they were lies as soon as they left the lips of the prevaricator. Other than his zipper problem, I really like Clinton.

    What is laughable is that Sarah Palin has such a slim body of record that she can equate her governing skills as Reaganesque. She could also say it was Nixonian, Carteresque or Humphrey. It doesn’t matter.

    She is not a seasoned politician no matter how many times she reminds any of us who is listening that she’s had decades in office. Does an average 800 votes a cycle really belie leadership? Asking where the pens are or arguing who owes for the coffee kitty during city council meetings is not Reaganesque, unless you change jellybeans for pens.

    Signing a paycheck for her city manager doing her job is not an accomplishment. They have machines that can do that for her. Or her parents.

    Sarah has been throwing Ronald Reagan’s name around since she hit the scene in desperate hopes that people would assign her that mantle. There is nothing that resembles leadership qualities between the two, even if Reagan was a horrible fake or befuddled tv-dinner watching, Hollywood dreaming asshole.

    – – Sigh – – I have shared a birthdate with RR my entire life. ZsaZsa Gabor, too. The notables of Feb. 6 are a bizarre collection of folks that make me feel like a misfit toy. It’s a heavy burden to shoulder, but I continue to soldier on. (My son shares a birthdate with OJ Simpson and Amanda Knox, his notables. He may outdo me in the birthday shouldering burden.)

      Welcome! It’s not the day you were born that really matters or who you share it with. It’s your day, your beginning. Happy Happy Birthday!! Thanks for sharing your birthday burden!

      How would you like to share a birthday w/Sean Hannity?? Thankfully, Capricorn women are the total opposite of Capricorn men.

    Didn’t she say last year that Reagan’s Alma Mater was Eureka College in CALIFORNIA??? Conveniently left that out this year, LOL!
