Christmas Address From the White House

I never realized how much I would miss this man.

I did. I had problems holding back the tears as George H.W. Bush was sworn in. I knew we would never see anybody like Reagan hold that office again.

Nice.

Bill, can you even imagine hearing that address today?

JPT, and it was presented without embarrassment or apology.

Павел... I hope you liked it!

I can't imagine a Christmas message from the current White House because the Muslim world doesn't celebrate Christmas.

President Reagan showed us what a president could be. He is gone but his example remains as a tower of hope that can be again some day.

Hey, if a second-rate B-actor could become Ronald Reagan, perhaps one of us modern-day Americans could too.

God bless President Reagan's legacy.

Whatever else history may say about me when I’m gone, I hope it will record that I appealed to your best hopes, not your worst fears; to your confidence rather than your doubts. My dream is that you will travel the road ahead with liberty’s lamp guiding your steps and opportunity’s arm steadying your way. - Ronald Reagan

Nickie, that's better.

The great sunrise hasn't got to you yet but I wish all you guys a very peaceful Christmas.

Rest up now.

Over here we expect.

It's ironic how most of us don't miss something 'til it's gone or appreciate it while it's around.

Reagan's term was only about 20 years ago...a lot of GOD seems to have been taken out of government since just 20 years ago. If Reagan delivered that speech today in today's climate, he may have been deemed politically incorrect.

Compare how often Reagan said I in his speaches to Obama in his and you get a hint of what greatness truly is.

Yes, I do miss the man.

Merry Christmas GNN team

After President Reagan I am profoundly disappointed in the paucity of courage of those who followed. I trust that God is now in the process of preparing the heart of another man that can we can be proud of.

Merry Christmas to all.

The lefties, as usual, called him a Republican idiot.

LL... It happened once. This nation is waiting to be inspired rather than charmed.

"second-rate B-actor"???

Opie, have you ever even seen Kings Row? (tongue firmly in cheek)

Truly inspiring words, you Old Geezer.

And a happy Christmas season to you, Incoming.

Heads up.

rin!... I realize there is not much merit in "feeling" something, but the guy really made you feel that this country had a higher calling.

Floristeria, thanks for the visit. We heartily respond with the same sentiments con gusto.

Woody, like so many special people and events, we wish we'd looked harder and listened more carefully. I'm just happy we needn't depend on the weakstream media to shape our memories of the man.

Siggie, we all probably should have realized that Reagan would be a hard act to follow.

Nonny, to the Left, all Republicans are either evil of stupid (or both).

Opus - Hey, if a second-rate B-actor could become Ronald Reagan, perhaps one of us modern-day Americans could too.

Second Rate ? He wasn't John Wayne, but he wasn't bad.

Well, OK. I'll do it. I'll run in 2012. I want some of you folks on my cabinet though. Plan on kicking some serious ass.


Nickie - I liked Hellcats of the Navy for its illustration of playing fair and honest in some of the most difficult of times.

Star Trek copied this theme in one of their episodes where Capt. Kirk supposedly killed off one Mr. Finney during an Ion storm. (The Star Trek version had a twist in which Finney wasn't dead)
