There were rumors, there was talk that Ronald Reagan was losing it in his second term..and now we find out through Ron Jr. that Ron was gone quite a while before he actually left office.
He had Alzheimer’s!
There was a famous joke going around at the time Nancy and Ronnie went to dinner at Chas ens in Beverly Hills. The waiter asked Nancy for her food order and she said she’d have the steak …and the waiter said :”What about the vegetable?” and she said “He’ll have the same.”
The irony of this disclosure by somebody who was closer than most to his dad Ron Junior is this.
Ronald Reagan was the PRESIDENT who …in a cost cutting mood… let all the mentally ill out of the homes where they were being cared for..just turned them out on the street…and then became one of them!
Talk about Karma!
SOME MORE IRONY? RONALD “THE NOT McDONALD” IS SARAH PALIN’S HERO!
Does this mean it takes a vegetable to know another vegetable?
This is a terrible disease and one of my best friends in the World has it and is sinking fast..it is a tragedy of monumental proportions to see an intellect slowly disintegrate into oblivion.
The burden on family is immense and debilitating. That said we have to wonder how long Ronald Reagan didn’t have a clue if he were President or on a set making “BEDTIME FOR BONZO TWO!”
Keeping this quiet and out of the media was one thing ..but people …this guy was meeting Gorbachev in Iceland and discussing nuclear disarmament in a one on one conversation!
Come to think of it when Gorby came out of that meeting he did have a look on his face like he’d just eaten some bad borscht.
This kind of terrifying subterfuge is typical of the moral standards of the REPUBLICAN party.
Who ever was calling the shots while Ronnie sat and stared at walls was hiding a dangerous truth from the American public. To this day the GOP will deny this and poo poo Ron Jnr. with their usual character assassination. But their lies will go on, their utter disdain for the people will continue… the Reagan era spawned Oliver North a traitorous subversive and a whole bunch of Iran /Contra military industrial criminals.
REAGAN’S condition was ideal for their philosophies…No interference. and so it continued until we came to eight years of Cheney /Rove..controlling a complete PRESIDENTIAL fool who didn’t even have a disease!
AND ON..AND ON …AND ON ,,,TO TODAY…
