Topic - Ron Reagan
Ron Reagan's claim - without substantiation - that his father, former President Ronald Reagan, had Alzheimer's disease while in office, exposes junior as being opportunistic and disingenuous ("Misreading Reagan," Wednesday, Commentary).
"What are you going to tell me about him that I don't already know?" This question from a friend, writes Ron Reagan, author of this book marking his father's 100th birthday on Feb. 6, "is entirely legitimate if a bit disquieting." It should be disquieting, for the answer is, nothing much.
President Reagan's son Ron has written a book that unfairly, and without any evidence, questions his father's mental capacity in the early to middle years of his presidency.
"Sarah Palin is a soap opera, basically. She's doing mostly what she does to make money and keep her name in the news," Ron Reagan says.
Also "a bit disquieting" is the technique the author adopts to spin out family history and chronicle his father's early years in Illinois, an approach pioneered by Edmund Morris in the infamous "Dutch; A Memoir of Ronald Reagan," a "much misunderstood" work Mr. Reagan says "comes as near as any book I've read to capturing my father's elusive nature."
