Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin and President Ronald Reagan

Ron Reagan is the NON-Reagan who keeps on giving. Remember when he said his father President Ronald Reagan had Alzheimer’s Disease when he was President?

Remember when his half-brother Michael called him an embarrassment?

Now, Left-wing NON Reagan is going after Sarah Palin.

The son of the former US president Ronald Reagan has branded Sarah Palin a ‘soap opera’ ahead of a speech she will give honouring his late father.

Ron Reagan said that he doesn’t see anything in common between his dad and the 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate.

Palin is scheduled to speak in Santa Barbara, California, on Friday at a tribute to Ronald Reagan. The event is one of the celebrations marking the 40th US president’s 100th birthday on Feb. 6.

The speech will be covered live on C-SPAN at 8 PM PST.

‘Sarah Palin is a soap opera, basically. She’s doing mostly what she does to make money and keep her name in the news,’ Reagan said.

‘She is not a serious candidate for president and never has been,’ added Reagan, a political independent whose politics lean left.

But former Reagan speechwriter Kenneth Khachigian praised the choice of Palin to speak at the event which is sponsored by the conservative Young America’s Foundation.

Certainly, Sarah Palin has MUCH MORE in common with President Reagan than the FAR LEFT son who never could quite measure up to the old man.

Update:

I just found this excellent cartoon from Michael Ramirez:

Reagan Vs. Reagan: Did President Ronald Reagan Have Alzheimer’s While President?

There is no evidence but I have covered the details and the Reagan Foundation’s response in this previous piece.

Now, even liberal Ron Reagan is backing away from what he has written in his book. Watch the video below from this morning.

It is time for both Reagan boys to STOP IT and get ready for the February 6th centennial birthday celebration.

And, of course, sell their books.

Michael Reagan Calls Brother Ron an Embarassment over Alzheimer’s Flap

The Ronald Reagan centennial celebration coming up in a few weeks should bring some very interesting family dynamics – as the two Reagan brothers are already fighting.
Ronald Reagan’s conservative son called his liberal half-brother “an embarrassment” Saturday for speculating in a new memoir that their father suffered from Alzheimer’s disease while president.

“Ron, my brother was an embarrassment to his father when he was alive and today he became an embarrassment to his mother,” Michael Reagan posted on Twitter.

My brother seems to want [to] sell out his father to sell books,” he added in another tweet.

The sibling tension bubbles over just three weeks before Ronald Reagan’s 100th birthday, which will kick off a year of events to honor the 40th president.

In “My Father at 100,” Ron Reagan recalls early warning signs of his father losing his mental faculties. “The question,” he writes, “of whether my father suffered from the beginning stages of Alzheimer’s while in office more or less answers itself.”

Michael Reagan, adopted during President Reagan’s first marriage, comes out with his own book on Tuesday. It’s a polemic called “The New Reagan Revolution: How Ronald Reagan’s Principles Can Restore America’s Greatness.” Newt Gingrich, a likely 2012 Republican candidate for president, wrote the foreword.

Well, there is little doubt that Ron Reagan wants to sell books and his new one looks like a winner. But, to drudge up this Alzheimer’s rumor which has largely been debunked is certainly over the top.

Here is a CNN video that discusses the issue with David Gergen, a former advisor to President Reagan.

I would recommend to the brothers to STOP IT and support Nancy to have the very best birthday party ever for their father.

By the way, the Reagan Foundation issued the following response on the Alzheimer’s issue:

“We believe Ron has written a wonderfully warm and engaging book about life with his father, Ronald Reagan,” the foundation said. “It offers a tribute that only a son could present. As for the topic of Alzheimer’s, this subject has been well documented over the years by both President Reagan’s personal physicians, physicians who treated him after the diagnosis, as well as those who worked closely with him daily. All are consistent in their view that signs of Alzheimer’s did not appear until well after President Reagan left the White House.”
