Michael Reagan Offers Insight on the 2012 Republican Presidential Nominee at Reagan Day Dinner

Bookmark and ShareOn Friday, New Jersey Assemblyman Jay Webber held his 8th annual New Jersey Reagan Day Dinner. What started out 8 years ago as a fine and fun cozy event that was first held in a local firehouse, was now held in the grand ballroom of the Sheraton Hotel where over 650 people gathered to commemorate Ronald Reagan and celebrate his life and achievements on the 100th anniversary of his birth.

All across America, literally thousands of such events were taking place this weekend, but thanks to Assemblyman Webber and the Young America’s Foundation, New Jersey’s celebration featured a keynote address by President Reagan’s son. As he noted in his opening remarks, “not the son who dances”.

The speech delivered on this night was by the Reagan son who represents conservative principles and maintains his father’s legacy……….Michael Reagan.

After conducting a very conversational dialogue about growing up in the Reagan familyand providing numerous personal stories that were quite amusing and very telling about the character and beliefs of his father, a member of the audience askedMike ifhe was leaning in a particular direction when it came towards a Republican nominee for President in 2012. Reagan offered no sign of favoritism towards any candidate. However he did have advicefor Republicans in 2012.

Mike Reagan told the capacity crowd that he firmly believes no matter who the G.O.P. nominates, they should adhere to the 80/20 rule his father believed in.

Ronald Reagan once famously stated “The person who agrees with you 80 percent of the time is a friend and an ally – not a 20 percent traitor.” It is that thinking which Michael Reagan told the audience to remember in November of 2012.

He added;

Let me put it to you this way, who will you support……Sarah Palin or Barack Obama? Paul Ryan or Barack Obama? Rick Perry or Barack Obama?.
