Just saw a DUmmy claim Reagan had Alzheimers while POTUS.

Such nonsense.

Even Leftwing Snopes rates the claim as "unproven".

In 1997 the NYT studied the topic and reported :


…even with the hindsight of Mr. Reagan’s diagnosis, his four main White House doctors say they never detected any evidence that his forgetfulness was more than just that. His mental competence in office, they said in a series of recent interviews, was never in doubt. Indeed, they pointed out, tests of his mental status did not begin to show evidence of the disease until the summer of 1993, more than four years after he left the White House.

“There was never anything that would raise a question about his ability to function as President,” said Dr. Lawrence C. Mohr, one of Mr. Reagan’s physicians in his second term. “Ronald Reagan’s cognitive function, belief structure, judgment, ability to choose between options, behavior and ability to communicate were totally and completely intact.”



He “never forgot appointments, misplaced or lost things, where he put his glasses, never forgot to put his hearing aids in, never forgot to put his contact lenses in, and these are things he did for himself,” Dr. Mohr said. “I saw him saddle and bridle horses at the ranch and later put things back exactly where they belonged.” And Mr. Reagan, the doctors stressed, was punctual, never depressed and had no difficulty with language or understanding what was going on around him.

1. Do you doubt it?

I'm pretty sure he was totally senile at least after he was shot by Hinkley.

"Say good night, now, Ronny." Come on, you know he wasn't all there.

3. No

Trump is a narcissistic, ignorant buffoon. Reagan was just out of his depth.

6. I detested Hillary

I'm genuinely still glad that Trump won.

I just hoped that the Democrats wound re-find their position. Instead, they've doubled down on identity politics. That makes me sad. They should stand for the the working classes, opposing illegal immigration for one thing. I'm disgusted by today's Democratic party.

12. Reagan out of his depth???

Why do liberals constantly try to make Reagan out as stupid. It is ignorant and if they knew Reagans history their arguments would collapse on themselves.

7. Hindsight and a sliding scale, IMHO.

My FIL has early stage Parkinson's. Looking back, you can see how he began to slow down and become much more "deliberate" in his mannerisms. At the time it just looked like he was getting old and "crochety"; the fact that my MIL would constantly nag and pick about his mannerisms didn't help any.

Reagan certainly never showed any visible symptoms while in office, to my recall. The disease can show signs of rapid onset, especially as one ages and becomes less resilient.

10. perhaps reagan was killed by hinkley's bullet and for some reason

he was replaced by a stunt double.

reagans well known habits of delegation and avoidance of "plausible denial" would have made continuation of his administration easy for a tight inner circle to accomplish.
