Reagan’s Impromptu Speech at 1976 GOP Convention – YouTube

I am posting this because I am getting tired of hearing all of the GOP people belly-aching about their predicament.

 

 

It’s time to put things into perspective, and it’s also time to man up, people!

    I recall very well watching this on tv at home in California that night.

    When Gerald Ford had won and was on stage he waved and called out to RR who was seated in the upper gallery, Ford wanted him on stage with him.

    The audience, and God knows how many of us watching on tv, waited anxiously for him to arrive on stage.

    He soon arrived and made that most memorable, for me, presentation as America cheered him!

    We could surely use that man now.

    Semper Watching!
