Ronnie gets us again!

Reagan statue unveiled at Capitol building -

"A teary-eyed Nancy Reagan watched as a bronze statue of her late husband, Ronald Reagan, was unveiled in the U.S. Capitol building in Washington Wednesday.

A blue-cloth cover was pulled from the seven-foot statue of the 40th U.S. president as Mrs. Reagan, 87, and a crowd packed with Reagan-era policymakers, looked on in the Capitol's Rotunda. The statue cast Reagan flashing a grin."

One would hope that no tax dollars went into the creation of that statue, but you would hope in vain...


  1. Are you certain the taxpayer's money contributed to the statue? Usually, the funds are raised privately. Incredible that Bush actually made Ronbo look good.

  2. I, because of the location of the statue, the Rotunda. And two, because Nancy Pelosi was there...

    Somehow, I can't see Ronnie or his minions spending any of their own money when they could get the taxpayers to cough it up. Not back then and certainly not now.
