FROM THE PEN OF RONALD REAGAN, FROM THE JUST PUBLISHED REAGAN DIARIES. ENTRY, MAY 17, 1986.....a reflection on the young G.W.
"A moment I've been dreading. George brought his ne're-do-well son around this morning and asked me to find the kid a job. Not the political one who lives in Florida. The one who hangs around here all the time looking shiftless. This so-called kid is already almost 40 and has never had a real job. Maybe I'll call Kinsley over at The New Republic and see if they'll hire him as a contributing editor or something. That looks like easy work."
It is interesting that to The Republicans now Ronald Reagan has attained an almost demigod status. They quote him at almost every political rally or function. What is humorous is that by doing this they are shooting themselves in the foot. I never agreed with Reagannomics....Many things the former President said were wrong... but this is definitely one time I think President Reagan hit the nail on the head.
