Ballet Dancer Verbally Clubs an Admitted War Criminal

Unlike Ronald’s bastard son, (no offense to honorable bastards), who clings to the entitlements endowed by well placed troublemakers who are willing to put him on the “public” airwaves, Ronald Reagan’s real son tells it like it is. Call him petite or skinny; call him what you will, but unlike his brother, he tells the truth in this video:

    Double-U and Cheney both admitted to war crimes in public. Even Hitler didn’t do that!

      It’s been interesting to me – it’s as if conservatives can’t quite bring themselves to criticize Ron Reagan but are having a damned hard time dealing with him – first he uses his authority as a family member to tell them that their hero had Alzheimer’s in the White House and now he’s criticizing the dark lord . . . I mean Dick Cheney. It’s fascinating.

    I wish Ronald Reagan were alive today. Some of the policies he enacted have sent the teabaggers into a rage!

    What we have become is unknown.

    Ron always seemed like a basically good guy. He reminds me of people I grew up with in L.A. and liked. More liberal than me but a straight shooter, respectful and articulate. Knowing lots of conservatives well as he does, such as his father, he gets conservatism and doesn’t demonize all conservatives as being wacko idiots. He disagrees with them articulately and is an honorable defender of his point of view. Good guy.

    It is indeed ironic so many pugs and baggers hold Reagan on a pedestal, given he is a liberal loon compared to most pugs and baggers of today.

    James,
    What purpose is gained from using the terms pugs and baggers?

    Now that he’s a little older, Ron Reagan really starts to remind me of the old man, in looks and mannerisms. He’s definitely got the Great Communicator thing going. Look how thoroughly he managed to dissect the Bush administration record on terrorism in just a couple of minutes, and in a lighthearted way. He even got away with comparing former VP Cheney to Gollum in LOTR without making it sound harsh!

    Joy Behar is a smart lady, but she’s not keeping up with the actions of the Obama administration and the revised right-wing talking points. Glenn Greenwald:

    In the early months of Obama’s presidency, the American Right did to him what they do to every Democratic politician: they accused him of being soft on defense (specifically “soft on Terror”) and leaving the nation weak and vulnerable to attack. But that tactic quickly became untenable as everyone (other than his hardest-core followers) was forced to acknowledge that Obama was embracing and even expanding — rather than reversing — the core Bush/Cheney approach to Terrorism. As a result, leading right-wing figures began lavishing Obama with praise — and claiming vindication — based on Obama’s switch from harsh critic of those policies (as a candidate) to their leading advocate (once in power).

    Even Dick Cheney, who once led the “soft on Terror” attacks, recently told NBC News he’s changed his mind about President Obama.

    Just in case anyone was wondering why I would be so harsh on Michael Reagan, (Reagan’s adopted son), I was referring to a comment he made on his radio show. I don’t have the exact quote, but he DID say that explosive devices should be placed in the rear-ends of Muslim babies and detonated. Nice!

    So, no apologies here.

    As an adopted son, he’s not really of the ‘kinder, gentler’ breed.

    Don’t think about Central America.

    I’m glad you like Ron Reagan. I’m sure he had a TV show at one time, but I wasn’t able to watch it with the services I had at the time. I’m pretty sure he had a radio show too, but obviously, it wasn’t on the air around here. We’re not allowed to hear intelligent, truthful voices here.

    At least KSL set a precedent by canceling Hannity. Other cities are now following suit. It would be very good for our country to hear honest voices, no matter which side they come from, but as far as I’m concerned, the republican party’s positions have become untenable today.

    As a matter of manners, I don’t think it is ok to refer to anyone as anyone else’s “adopted” son. Michael is his son. Period. I know a lot of adopted people and people who have adopted children, and the title “adopted son” is never used.

    “I know a lot of adopted people and people who have adopted children, and the title “adopted son” is never used.”

    All girls, eh brew?

    Nurture v Nature. but, I accept your point.

  12. #13 by Larry Bergan on January 25, 2011 - 5:55 pm

    I’ve never really understood what is bad or secret about being adopted. It seems that your adoptive parents saw something special about you or they wouldn’t have taken you in.

    I think Ronald Reagan would have been angry that Michael uses his name to enrich himself and cause political trouble.

  13. #14 by brewski on January 25, 2011 - 6:44 pm

    There is nothing bad or secret about it. I think that some people interpret is as being a qualification. Like Ron Jr.s is his son and Michael is his adopted son, as though that is less equal.

    So trading on the name, just like every Kennedy?

    This is one reason religion bothers me. It wasn’t Me saying adoption should be considered to be bad or secret; it’s religion that does that. If you and your wife weren’t virgins when you got married and your children aren’t both of yours genetically, then there is some kind of taint on your child.

    Think about it.

    I am curious what term YOU would use to describe such a child. The only other one I can think of is illegitimate. Is that better then adopted, or is being taken in by someone who wants you unspeakable in some strange way.

    The word bastard, which is another word for the same thing has never in my lifetime been used in a kind way. It was a bad choice of words on my part, but I disdain what Micheal Reagan said about Muslim Children. You should too.

  15. #16 by Larry Bergan on January 26, 2011 - 4:51 pm

    Cheney is a war criminal who blows Muslim children to bits without a second thought and Michael Reagan wouldn’t challenge him in a thousand years for doing that because he’s in it for the money.

    No one is a war criminal until convicted in a agreed upon international court Larry. I expect to see Obama in the dock for his war crimes before Cheney, focus on ongoing war crimes happening everyday under this president. We cannot do anything about the dead Cheney may have been responsible for, but if we do stop Obama now, then we are complicit in his ongoing war crimes and have no legs to stand on.

  17. #18 by Te whoops on January 26, 2011 - 11:13 pm

    if we do NOT stop Obama now…

  18. #19 by Larry Bergan on January 27, 2011 - 6:26 pm

    You’re probably right Te whoops ( glenn 75.70), Obama will probably be convicted for not keeping American as safe as – admitted war criminal – Cheney.

    Have a cigar.

    ‘ Sure that’s a cigar?

    maybe some kind of worst.
