    In fairness:

    EVENT, October 10, 1981 — The funeral of assassinated Egyptian President Anwar Sadat.
    REAGAN, October 10, 1981 — Reagan went horseback riding at Camp David.

    EVENT, August 29, 1983 — Two Marines were killed and 14 wounded in Beirut.
    REAGAN, August 29, 1983 — Reagan remained on vacation at Rancho Del Cielo, California.

    EVENT, September 1, 1983 — Reagan was still on vacation in California when the Soviets shot down Korean Airlines Flight 007.
    REAGAN, September 1, 1983 — According to Fox News Channel’s Chris Wallace, as well as contemporaneous accounts, Reagan planned to remain on vacation until he was photographed horseback riding and was convinced to return to the White House.

    The Washington Post, 9/4/83 — At this point, [Press Secretary Larry] Speakes was interrupted and asked if Reagan was going back to Washington. He ignored the question and read a statement on the Middle East. Asked again if Reagan was going back to Washington, Speakes answered, “There are no plans for the president to return to Washington earlier than anticipated.”
    FOX NEWS CHANNEL’S CHRIS WALLACE: I was covering Ronald Reagan at that time. He was in Santa Barbara at his ranch when that happened, and quite frankly he didn’t want to leave. And his advisers realized how terrible this looked, and eventually persuaded him he had to fly back to Washington and had to give this speech to the nation, but it did take him four days.

    EVENT, October 22, 1983 — The administration began planning its military incursion into Grenada.
    REAGAN, October 22, 1983 — Reagan remained on vacation at the Augusta National Golf Club in Georgia. Repeat: golf resort.

    Thanks for reminding us that a good President can lead from anywhere while President Obama can’t seem to lead from anywhere.

    And the comparison of Reagan saving the students in Grenada and Obama allowing our diplomat and military men to die in Benghazi was brilliant.

      “Thanks for reminding us that a good President can lead from anywhere”

      Hey Mr. Misinformed.

      The stand down orders never happened nor was anything else true about all the Benghazi nonsense spewed by republicans and RW yapping heads.

      This is all per Issa’s own committee’s findings.

      The released all this over three weeks ago before the lyings snakes slithered out of town for their 5 week August vaction, err recess.

      Further, since everyone on the intelligence committe has been briefed on this from the get go Issa and car full of clowns kwew this all along.

      So, this Benghazi craopalo is all just part of the R propganda machines designed to yank the chains of people like you, and pov, and Madhatter, and Brandon M and on and on. And evidently the propganda machine is very effective because you’re still spewing the lies.

      You clowns are EXHIBIT A of the misinformed R voter, that they count on to vote against their own interests because Obama eats argula, or doesn’t have on his flag pin or on and on and on and year after year you continue to swallow the bait hook line and sinker.

      Of course this comment makes no sense and can’t withstand tissue-paper thin scrutiny.

      But then DISAFFECTED is little else than a bomb-thrower who ducks his head back in his bunker to rewind his VHS tape of Red Dawn.

    Now is not the time for a vacation Big O, not when there are more pressing things to take care of:

      Was this necessary? You appear “lesser” then what you are trying to project! This site is not where this type of posting belongs. Maybe try http://www.whitehood.com, this should suit your type.

      One should be judge by their actions, not by their color.

          No personal site here, just don’t care for “trash” cluttering this useful site. And FYI, Armstrong township is 100% white based on latest info. And yes I’m in that group.

            Me to.

            Why don’t you bring your computer inside out of the sun Arms?

            It will do a disposition good.

            Matter-of-fact, it’s so hot out there today I saw a robin pulling a worm out of the ground and it was using a pot holder.

            Computer is a CPU so it stays inside my 76 degree temperature home.

            My disposition is the same no mater what the temperature is, inside or out. It is the content of the issue, not you personally, that is wrong here.

            Would be nice if the CCO administration would weigh in on this to see if it exceptionable for this type of content be allowed here. Maybe a poll could be taken?

            Armstongres I love ya man.

            I just don’t understand why these forums have to always be so damn serious all the time.

            If you’ve noticed, I can get dead serious when I want to, and demeaning if I have to.

            But I’m not much on degrading anyone because I have no idea if whom I’m degrading was in the Tet Offensive or who has a son or daughter in harms way today.

            I believe you took my sarcasm the wrong way earlier today but so be it.

            Maybe I can catch you before you go to Hornville next time and you can be a little more civil.


            p.s. did that for MadHat….

            I stop at Hornville for food only. Exception was when my son turn 21. Can not afford to get stop by the “po-po” like we could 35-40 years ago.
