What a show of insincerity the media is putting on these days as Ronald Reagan's 100th birthday approaches. They belittled him from the day he took the presidential oath to the day he left the White House. He was called stupid, thick-headed, a cowboy, a war monger. Comedy shows mocked him every chance they could. News anchors looked upon him with disdain at his every move.
Now, as they see that they can make money off his memory with themed magazines and advertising sales on Reagan tribute shows, these same media hypocrites praise him for his courage and leadership.
I'll wager we'll see the same sudden respect for George W. Bush from this lot some day.
Sorry, but to be praised by scoundrels is not to be praised at all.
