UPDATE: Liberal Media Legitimizes Claim
“I knew the idiot didn’t [know] what the hell was going on around him when he had to use cue cards to remember to say “hullo, h-o-w a-r-e y-o-u. That’s the reason he had this “kitchen cabinet” to run the country illegally. The poor clown had no idea which end was up.”
Voice of Sanity from Red State: Medical professionals interviewed so far, including some who were around during Reagan’s second term, have said that there was absolutely no indication of Alzheimer’s during the time Ron Jr. references, but the younger Reagan assures us that we all now know that the onset of Alzheimer’s can be years before being medically discovered. Well, sure. And we are not here challenging Junior’s apprehension in 1984, for that is impossible to ascertain. What we are challenging is both the propriety of this, shall we say, “bombshell” being offered at this moment, or at all, and the callous disregard, if indeed it is disregard, for the ways in which it will be used.
In an attempt to hawk a cheap, no doubt ghostwritten, memoir, Ron Reagan, youngest son of Ronald Reagan said in a press release this week that his father had Alzheimer’s disease while he was President. This isn’t the first time Reagan and his sister Patty Davis have disgraced the Great Communicator and it probably will not be the last, if there is a buck to be made on his name.
In a counter press release tonight, President Reagan’s oldest son, Michael said, “Ron was an embarrassment to his father when he was alive and today he became an embarrassment to his mother.”
“Watching the first of his two debates with 1984 Democratic presidential nominee Walter Mondale, I began to experience the nausea of a bad dream coming true. At 73, Ronald Reagan would be the oldest president ever reelected. Some voters were beginning to imagine grandpa—who can never find his reading glasses—in charge of a bristling nuclear arsenal, and it was making them nervous. Worse, my father now seemed to be giving them legitimate reason for concern. My heart sank as he floundered his way through his responses, fumbling with his notes, uncharacteristically lost for words. He looked tired and bewildered.”
Which of course explains how the Gipper was responsible for the fall of Eastern Bloc communism, the greatest period of financial growth in the twentieth century, and established the United States as the world’s sole superpower.
And the drivel goes on as the prodigal leads us to the threshold of revelation only to bring us crashing back to terra firma with the proverbial “no cigar.” Trust me, the acid was good in Hollywood in the 1980s when Little Ronnie was there.
“I’ve seen no evidence that my father (or anyone else) was aware of his medical condition while he was in office. Had the diagnosis been made in, say 1987, would he have stepped down? I believe he would have.
Yeah, he wishes.
Question: Could it be he has seen no evidence because the condition did not exist? Just a thought. Hint. A President of the United States is subjected to the most rigorous physicals of any human being on the planet, Junior.
One has to wonder if there are any lengths to which this little ne’er-do-well snot will not go to disgrace his father’s legacy and make a few bucks.
Channeling Ronnie. Are you absolutely sure this little SOB is your son?
