… and we still miss you so very much, President Reagan.
I wrote this earlier this year, and it still holds true today:
Missin’ President Reagan 3/8/06
Every once in while – especially during some of the heavier bickering back and forth between the parties, and with the lack of leadership shown from some prominent Republicans these days, I think about President Reagan and what an inspiration he was not just to conservatives, but to everyone. His average approval rating while in office was 57%. When he left office, he was at 64%. Not bad for a guy who the press routinely implied was a dumb cowboy!
I miss his humor, his strength, his courage, his wisdom, and his incredible speeches. Plainly put: I just miss him.
