These Ronald Reagan quotes are a lot of fun to read. Mr. Reagan is
bold, humorous, and intelligent. I was a kid when he was president, so I
am just now understanding some of his quotes. It is always intriguing
when Hollywood actors bridge over to politics. I guess it goes without
saying that actors are just as diverse and intelligent as non-actors.
