Obituary - Ronald Reagan 1911-2004
Ronald Reagan former Actor and US President died today, probably reached the high point of his career with this. Sadly missed by his family and the Iron Lady who once wrote about Reagan that he
"did not suffer from the dismal plague of doubts which has assailed so many politicians in our times and which has rendered them incapable of clear decisions."
A quote which is probably better applied to Thatcher herself.
It seems that CNN broke the story of Reagans death a little early.
There was this
Speaking in London, the Prime Minister, John Howard, described Mr Reagan as the greatest post World War II American leader.
and then this
"He leaves behind a nation he restored and a world he helped to save," Mr Bush said in Paris.
And all the time I just thought he was an incompetent old bastard who should have been impeached.
