Nope, I’m not kidding. It seems Republican Rep. Patrick McHenry of North Carolina wants to replace President Grant’s mug with Ronald Wilson Reagan’s.
From the congressmen’s webpage..“Every generation needs its own heroes,” said Congressman McHenry. “One decade into the 21st century, it’s time to honor the last great president of the 20th and give President Reagan a place beside Presidents Roosevelt and Kennedy.”
“President Reagan was a modern day statesman, whose presidency transformed our nation’s political and economic thinking,” McHenry continued. “Through both his domestic and international policies he renewed America’s self confidence, defeated the Soviets and taught us that each generation must provide opportunity for the next.”
Listen my Republican friends, I get your admiration for President Reagan. I loved his rhetoric and he did give some tremendous speeches. But this idolatry is as insane as a school renaming itself after President Obama. This it the type of stuff we point to the Left on when they worship one of their idols. Hello “Obama Messiah”.
With all of the nonsense the Government has/is creating, to bring this kind of bill up is moronic. I get the whole scoring political points from your base, but if you really want to honor Ronald Reagan, start acting and voting like his rhetoric
