He’d be 101 today. His legacy lives on as each of us now represents Reagan. Never forget who you are as we plow on through this year. Thanks to President Reagan, we have a compass in our hand and the wind at our back.

Here’s an ad from Americans for Prosperity reminding us of the difference between Reagan and the Dumb Bastard:

Heritage: Morning Bell: On Reagan’s Birthday, His Legacy Lives On

Today marks President Ronald Reagan’s 101st birthday. Born in Tampico, Illinois, Reagan made his journey west to Iowa as a radio broadcaster, then on to California to take Hollywood by storm. He crossed America as a spokesman for General Electric, and then — after discovering the import of conservative values — entered the political arena, where he would ultimately lead his fellow citizens out of a wilderness of self-doubt, helping the country come to see that it could be morning in America once again…

    Has it been that long since we haven’t had a real president?

    I highly recommend Reagan’s Autobiography.

    I was 17 in November of 1980. Argggghhh! My first Presidential election was 1984, and I couldn’t wait to vote for him. It was an honor. He was tough, yet not full of himself. He understood the American people, and he liked and believed in us. I can’t say that about any President we have had since.

    The last time I voted FOR a president with pride instead of settling for the last man left standing was for Ronald Reagan in 1980. Cheney was the man I had my eye on in the primary, but he bowed out and I then set my sights on this actor who I knew nothing about. He won me over by sharing his conservtive ideas and vision for a better future for our country and made us beleieve it was in our power to make it happen. We love him so because we know he loved us too.

    Did you hear what Tammy said about her Tuesday show. Due to the special schedule, Tammy’s Tuesday show starts an hour early and “goes to 11”. Does that mean anything to anyone? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller? The Tammy show goes to 11! Dammit, it’s a classic line! And Tammy used it inadvertently! Here’s the YouTube clip.

    I turned 18 in 1984. He was the first ballot I ever cast.

    Happy 101st Mr. President. Say “Hi” to George Washington for us.

    I served under this great leader for 8 years. My first 2 years were under the first DB Carter. At that time it was almost a disgrace in the public’s eye to wear a military uniform. Alot of my buddy’s were jumped and mugged. When President Reagan arrived we learned and displayed pride again. I really miss the Gipper and look forward to the day I meet him in the great beyond.

    I was only 20 when he was first elected and politics were about as far down my to do list as it could get at that time. I was young, had a good job, a new Z28 and was free as could be be. Looking back with my 20/20 hindsight I wish I’d taken the time to pay attention to what was unfolding right in front of me. Luckily I have forums such as this to help me remember.
