Happy Birthday Ron Reagan, Jr.!

reagan-grey

Born May 20, 1958, in Los Angeles, Ronald Prescott Reagan is the son of the late Ronald Reagan and Nancy Davis Reagan.  He’s also one of my favorite political commentators; a clear liberal voice that often rises above the muck of TV news.  It’s ironic, considering that his father is a conservative icon.  But, Ron has no patience for the new brand of Republican.  He openly supported John Kerry during Kerry’s bid for the presidency in 2004.  A year earlier he condemned the Bush Administration for trying to take the helm of conservatism.  “The Bush people have no right to speak for my father, particularly because of the position he’s in now,” Ron, Jr., said. “Yes, some of the current policies are an extension of the ‘80s.  But the overall thrust of this administration is not my father’s – these people are overly reaching, overly aggressive, overly secretive, and just plain corrupt.  I don’t trust these people.”
