Happy Birthday, Ronald Reagan

February 6, 2010

99 years ago today, Ronald Wilson Reagan was born in Tampico, Illinois.

Our 40th president brought us back from the brink of a crippling recession, took us through the cold war and saved hostages in Iran, among many other accomplishments.  For so many reasons he is a conservative and an American hero.

It was something of  a pissing contest between my conservative friends and I on how many years we lived in the Reagan administration, well I remember that on June 12, 1987, Reagan May have given one of his most memorable speeches:

However here is his 1964 GOP Convention Speech:

His speech at the 1980 GOP convention is still one of my favorites. After this speech he went on to win one of the most lopsided political presidential contests in American History

During his presidency, Reagan’s Address on the Challenger Disaster

Of Course, he was always witty and funny

Here’s to the 99th birthday of a founder of the Republican Party, a Great Conservative and a Great America.
