Thinking About a President


"The real deal, moral, honest, respectful and dignified. They treated Secret Service and everyone else with respect and honor, thanked everyone all the time. He took the time to know everyone on a personal level. One favorite story was early in his Presidency when he came out of his room with a pistol tucked on his hip. The agent in charge asked: “Why the pistol, Mr. President?” He replied, “In case you boys can’t get the job done, I can help.” It was common for him to carry a pistol. When he met with Gorbachev, he had a pistol in his briefcase. --Ronald Kessler, In the President's Secret Service

I won't sully President Reagan's memory by making comparisons to present company.

  2. The differences between Reagan and just about everyone who came after are striking. Can you imagine the current Pantywaist in Chief carrying a gun? Even the Photoshopped version of him with a shotgun was too unbelievable to take seriously.

    1. Barack Obama is a total and complete disgrace at every possible level. History will not treat his stewardship kindly.

    1. Hopefully America will pick a president with a love of country next time. None of the prime contenders on either side fit the bill.

  5. All the Pubs have loved the country and treated everyone with fairness and humility, understanding they were merely housekeepers... Then Dems on the other hand have run amok, treated people like crap, and hurt America in the worlds eye every time...

  7. Most assuredly California and the Nation need another cut from the same cloth as he, soon.
