Ronald Wilson Reagan, 40th President of the United States of America. I don’t believe there is another famous or public person I think more highly of than Ronald Wilson Reagan. He stood for many of those things that I feel are fundamentally American. I have a cousin named Ronnie Wilson and I think very highly of him and for reasons that aren’t that much different than Ronald Wilson Reagan.
- Ronald Wilson Reagan loved his country – Ronnie Wilson loves his country.
- Ronald Wilson Reagan loved his family – Ronnie Wilson loves his family.
- Ronald Wilson Reagan was a man of principle – Ronnie Wilson is a man of principle.
- Ronald Wilson Reagan fought for our freedom – Ronnie Wilson fought for our freedom.
- Ronald Wilson Reagan fought for the freedom of others in the world – Ronnie Wilson fought for the freedom of others in the world.
- Ronald Wilson Reagan was a man of his word – Ronnie Wilson is a man of his word.
- Ronald Wilson Reagan was a generous man – Ronnie Wilson is a generous man.
Ronald Reagan was a man with character and integrity, just like my cousin Ronnie Wilson and just like so many millions of others here in America who live their days with honor. I believe that is the magic of his appeal . . . he was just another one of us, working to provide for his family, improve his family’s security and make his country a better place than when he found it. The only real difference between Ronald and Ronnie is fame because their goals and ideals are one and the same.
There was a ceremony today celebrating Ronald Reagan’s 100th birthday, which is actually tomorrow. Sarah Palin was the keynote speaker and delivered another one of her trademark hum-dingers of a speech. Here it is:
Happy Birthday Mr. President! We miss you and could certainly use some of your good old common sense today. Unfortunately there is no replacement for you sir, but there are many who believe, as you did, that America is indeed that “shining city on the hill” and are working hard to protect and preserve Her luster. They would make you proud.
