Happy birthday, Ronald Reagan

If you’re as old as I am, then you’re old enough to remember when America had a real president — a man who loved life, loved liberty, loved God, didn’t bow to foreign heads of state, took seriously his oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, and believed with all his heart that the country he was elected to serve was the greatest country on earth. Today is the 102nd anniversary of his birth.

This cartoon will mean nothing to those of you who are too young to remember the 1980s, but for those of us who were there, it’s a little stroll down memory lane that ought to elicit a smile or two.

  1. Excellent, Bob! I totally missed this! Would you be willing to repost for us so we don’t completely disgrace the Gipper’s memory? :)

    Love the cartoon ~ it does elicit a happy haze of memories of what could have been ;) My first vote was for Reagan — I was already 24 years old, but just coming out of the 60s-70s fog of dysfunction into real life.

      Oooh, you’re lucky your first vote was for a winner — not to mention a great president! My first vote was for Gerald Ford. (It’s a long story.)
