Nancy Reagan endorses Romney's bid for president
Boston Globe ^ | May 31, 2012 | AP

Posted on 05/31/2012 9:56:41 PM PDT by Innovative

The widow of President Ronald Reagan says she is firmly behind Romney. And she says that her "Ronnie" would have liked Romney's business background and what she calls his "strong principles."

In a statement issued after the Romneys' visit, Mrs. Reagan said she believes that Romney has the experience and leadership skills that, in her words, "our country so desperately needs."

As I said in previous post... taking advantage of an elderly person would be frowned on by the court. I am conservator of an elderly relative and if I were to use her as they used Mrs. Reagan would be immediately charged by the court and my bond would be forfeited.

Why don't you call Nancy up and tell her so. Better yet. Call the Reagan library and let them know how you feel about Nancy.

In the meantime I have great respect for the woman and will take her at her word instead of manipulating reality, recreating reality, or just plain lying to advance an arrogant self serving purpose and lie as you are doing.

I am awake my FRiend. Truly.

Hey if you have a beef with Nancy Reagan take it up with her. Nothing idiotic about that. Clearly you aren’t a conservative trying to get others to do what you can do for yourself. If you find my post not fitting please by all means do notify the moderator yourself. I am not your mommy honey. Of course simple logic is usually not deleted here.

No beef with Mrs. Reagan.. my beef is with those who are using and abusing her. There are laws against that, but they are obviously not enforced when powerful people are involved. You know it, you are an enabler of it... so then you are damned with the rest of them aren’t you?

It's simple.

You attacked Nancy Reagan's mentality because you did not agree with her.

I am simply stating that that is what you are doing and if you have a problem with her please by all means contact her to voice your disagreement, belief that you know more than she about her husband and how he thinks, as well as mention that since you disagree that you think there is something wrong with her mentality.

Clear and simple as a cloudless, sunny day. Can't be any more clear than that.

I guess you know about this.

Former first lady Nancy Reagan speaks out for abortion rights.
"I don't give a damn about the Pro-Lifers," and demanding that all mention of abortion be removed from the president's 1987 State of the Union address.

Enough states have voted to give Romney the required votes..
I feel your pain..Our primary was this week and it felt like we had no voice. in the Presidential picks
We had a lot of important races for Senator on down..and will have many runoffs.. Tea Party favorites did well..It will be who gets out the vote best for runoffs ..especially for Senate..June will be another hot election month for the July runoff elections.

Actually you have attacked her mentality continually. There were at least three instances, but I will post one in which you basically she is mentally incapable of thinking, using logic, caring for herself mentally, actually accuse of essentially being an inanimate object:

You posted:

Ronald Reagan’s widow is at an advanced age and has been manipulated by many since her husband’s passing. This includes her own liberal issue. Get over it, she is of an age where she is trotted out and manipulated. You should be shaming those who use her instead of attacking good FReepers who question her judgment.

Now that's just one. There are at least two others.

But if lying and deceiving brings you pleasure so be it.

Oh I see. So you are old too. HMMMMM. By your own logic (NOT MINE!) you mind is in a weakened state too. SO go figure. Your logic is completely whacked at this point. You are basically pulling a blind leading the blind charge here. HAHAHAHAHA.

I guess that's what happens when you use a tactic of deception and it misfires. Easier to stick on the side of truth. So simple. So clear. Liars and deceivers always get caught.

It’s going to be a tough election for many of us including you it seems, but as you can see on this thread, a couple of these guys are truly loving that Romney finally made it.

A couple of them are Romney devotees who prefer him over a conservative, they are excited as punch over this.

So you're number three of the attack the messenger (Nancy Reagan) Group.

Do what you must. There will plenty more Mitt Romney endorsements between now and November. You three by fighting against Mitt at this point are all working for the Obama reelection campaign with your propaganda against Romney to turn voters away from him.

As mentioned it is a lost battle. You all sound like a bunch of babies that can't move on from mommies lap.

The big kids and adults are on to either fighting for conservative candidates and issues they can really get behind and or fighting for Romney or actively against Obama. But you guess are the little three spermies that just couldn't make the transition into the uterus cavity and will live only to die if you don't find the way forward.

I meant Romney has secured the required number of delegates for the nomination..
He recieved 108 total from Texas..and it was more than enough..
early returns produced this article

Of course if you are expecting the delegates to revolt at the convention..that is another story.

There is very little difference between Romney and Obama’s actual records. Both supported abortion, gay rights, gun control, liberal judges, global warming, compulsory health insurance, individual mandates, government control over the economy, etc, in other words liberal progressive policies. And they both loathed Reagan, conservatism and the tea party.
Romney now swears he’s a Reagan conservative. He also claims that his brand of government controlled, government forced, mandated compulsory health insurance is a “free-market conservative solution.” He also still says that even if president, he would do nothing about gays in the military. You can bet that means he will do nothing to thwart the advancing gay agenda. He also still says today that man-made global warming is real and that government will eventually have to do something about it. There goes our free-economy. He also says that TARP, the bailouts, the stimulus spending, etc, were all good ideas and that more may be necessary. So he truly does believe that government control of the economy, picking winners and losers, etc, is a good thing. Crony capitalism. He never even mentions the constitution which doesn’t give the federal government the authority to do any of the above. Wonder why.
No Reaganite here, so guess that’s just another lie too.
And they now call me a troll too for simply stating the truth.

I've no investment except to state and restate the truth and point out the many lies, deceptions and veritable manipulations you parade out on every turn (or try any way).

Actually I am calm, a bit bored, and--as mentioned--barely stimulated by the whole of it.

It is all simple clarity and it isn't even mildly entertaining to see the ineffectual lackluster manipulations you keep trying to pull out of the hat. Soon I will retire to sleep. Calmness can do this.

Wow.. aren’t you the wonder. Posting like a super being you are! It’s all about you isn’t it? Not about this subject, just about how great you are, isn’t it? Perhaps you will be more convincing in your arguments if you remove yourself, your ego from them and address only the subject at hand. Then you won’t have to be so concerned about the perceived “drama” (that you seem to thrive on).

What is a real shame is the way you are trashing Nancy Reagan. The worst Dem Reagan-hater couldn’t do a better job of it.

If it quacks like a duck, walks like a duck and all that and your posts would make the most enthusiastic Obama supporter proud.

Nancy Reagan is pure class and your attacks on her don’t reflect on her, they reflect on you.

Nope. Just a Christian. In the rush to rid the White House of one evil, you and your compatriots have forgotten what that means, and have become precisely everything that you claim to rail against. That is what is so very sad.

My only true soul investment is one that is calmly and joyfully cared out and that is Jim's tagline as mentioned in post 174: Resistance to tyrants is obedience to God!! Agree with me or not. I find the tactics of all three of you tyrannical at this point. This is my God filled instinct and this is what I see taking place. I stay up and follow up on this as the truth is important and tyranny and lies are obvious here regarding Nancy. Obama is also a tyrant and so are his henchmen. I fight that evil and his vile demons that are destroying our Godly nation.

That is all I want here is to fight for God and his righteousness. Truth is the nucleus.

“No one is attacking Nancy Reagan”

The supposition that you and fieldmarshaldj claim as fact, that Nancy Reagan is so weak-minded that she can be readily manipulated into doing something against her conviction IS an INSULT to her. Anyone with two braincells to rub together can see that.

But of course it does take two brain cells... those without at least two can’t see that.

Are you going to run for president? Romney is the dude here. Move on or fight for lower offices. It is a waste at this point. If you must stay at the wake a month longer so be it, but the troops have moved on. My hope is that you find which battalion you can find in front to join so they can benefit from your tenacity and doggedness.
