No matter you which party you side with you can not deny that President Regan played a vital roll in the world's history. During his presidency the Berlin wall fell as did the USSR.

    Rest in peace, Mr. President.



    At least his long and debilitating battle with Alzheimer's disease is finally over.

    Kind of fitting and ironic that he die on the Anniversary of D-Day, being a man of that generation, and being such a great orator and someone who - despite whatever shortcomings he had - made Americans feel proud again. I'm just glad he and his family suffer from that awful disease no more. What torment....

    If by "his" you mean GHWB's presidency then yes those events happened during his presidency. Shrub the Father was in office in Nov 89 when the Berlin Wall fell. I suppose that one could suggest several different dates for when the USSR fell- I'd choose the failed coup when Yeltsin got his schwerv on myself- but they're pretty much all during GWHB's tenure as well.

    You are correct. My memory, and my education, failed me.

    You could direct similar accusations at any modern-era president...except maybe Jimmy Carter, unless peanuts rule the afterlife.

    I heard Wolf Blitzer say something similar: What a great guy to time his death so appropriately. \ Whatever Wolf...

    It's too bad he didnt suffer with Alzheimer's (you don't realize you're suffering) like the thousands he murdered and the millions he caused suffering. It would have been certainly more ironic if he had died of AIDS instead of Alzheimer's because of how long he blew off the AIDS research funding. Or better yet, lung cancer, considering his worthless environmental policies thinking trees were a major contributor to pollution.

    Yes, it's a terrible disease. My father had Parkinson's and though the symptoms are different...it can be a long and drawn out ordeal. Rest easy cowboy. In many ways he was a genuine American. But he fostered the people and ideology we have today (and their offspring) in office..and that really sucks.



    With that over with...
