Today In History - Ronald Reagan Could Have Done Obama A Big Favor...

...and prevented the Obamessiah and the USA from being insulted and embarrassed, in front of the rest of the world, by Russia's president Putin. (Oh, that's right - he wasn't embarrassed, he is to egotistical too even realize that is what Putin did to him.) Of course, Reagan also could have done the rest of the world, or at least the USA, a favor had he not been joking and actually carried out what he said he was about to do. It was back on August 11, 1984 that Ronald Reagan quipped:

"My fellow Americans, I'm pleased to tell you today that I've signed legislation that will outlaw Russia forever. We begin bombing in five minutes."

Had he actually meant it, I think, that the world would have been much more secure than it is today, what with Vladimir Putin pushing around Obama as if Obama and the USA were just so much meaningless fluff. Reagan never made the USA a laughing stock as Obama repeatedly has done to us nor do I think he ever actually weakened our country as Obama seems to have a penchant for doing.

The quip by Reagan was made while he was preparing to give a speech marking a milestone in American history. His actual opening line to that speech was:

"My fellow Americans, I'm pleased to tell you that today I signed legislation that will allow student religious groups to begin enjoying a right they've too long been denied — the freedom to meet in public high schools during non-school hours, just as other student groups are allowed to do."

Can you imagine that, an American president who instead of denying or restricting citizens rights, actually expanded and protected them. Ronald Reagan was very different from Barack Obama indeed, he was a president who both earned and deserved respect.

All the best,
