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

Posted Posted in Michael Reagan, Ron Reagan, Ronald Reagan

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.”

The Ronald Reagan Centennial: My Father at 100

Posted Posted in Ron Reagan, Ronald Reagan


The Ronald Reagan Centennial is only 32 days away – the weekend of February 6th – President Ronald Reagan’s 100th birthday.  And, what better to celebrate than with a new book about President Reagan by his son, Ron.
February 6, 2011, is the one hundredth anniversary of Ronald Reagan’s birth. To mark the occasion, Ron Reagan has written My Father at 100, an intimate look at the life of his father-one of the most popular presidents in American history-told from the perspective of someone who knew Ronald Reagan better than any adviser, friend, or colleague. As he grew up under his father’s watchful gaze, he observed the very qualities that made the future president a powerful leader. Yet for all of their shared experiences of horseback rides and touch football games, there was much that Ron never knew about his father’s past, and in My Father at 100, he sets out to understand this beloved, if often enigmatic, figure who turned his early tribulations into a stunning political career.

Since his death in 2004, President Reagan has been a galvanizing force that personifies the values of an older America and represents an important era in national history. Ron Reagan traces the sources of these values in his father’s early years and offers a heartfelt portrait of a man and his country-and his personal memories of the president he knew as “Dad.”

Day By Day January 4, 2011 – RINO Call

Day By Day by Chris Muir

POLS, whether Republican or NOT, must learn that the message of last November’s elections was to stop and then cut federal government spending. The private business sector has been squeezed and needs to be revitalized with initiative and less government intrusion. Otherwise, employment will not improve.

Haven’t the economic lessons of the Reagan Revolution of the 1980’s been learned?

Bill Clinton certainly knows since he was the main beneficiary of Reagan’s economic and national defense policies.

Missile Defense Watch: United States Navy Uses Laser to Shoot Down Drones

This new unclassified silent video shows during a recent test, a Navy laser using a tracking system from Raytheon to shoot down the unmanned aerial vehicles with lasers

The money quote of the day: “The targets came in over the ocean, and it was a good day for lasers, bad day for drones.”

Indeed.

Remember when the LEFT including Vice President Joe Biden used to ridicule President Reagan and Star Wars?
