    the Reagans would routinely use astrology before making any decisions while in office. i dont think he owed nancy an apology but he did anyway.

    i love Obama too....
    There was a great article written by comic Paul Reiser regarding Obama and his perhaps misstep with the Nancy Reagan comment. In a nutshell he says, leave the poor guy alone! He has been walking on eggshells for 2 years during the campaign so he is bound to say something a little off now and then. Here is the article:

    Though I thought when he referred to himself as a "mutt" that was the best! icon_lol.gif

    I love him too!! I cracked up when I heard the "mutt" comment. I still think he will be a FANTASTIC president. He makes me want to be a better person!

    He was wrong about Nancy Reagan. She would use it to try and determine when he should schedule things. President Reagan never used it, never used it to make decisions or anything. Obama should apologize to Mrs Reagan. It was Hilary Clinton who would try to speak to Eleanor Roosevelt's ghost.

    There is nothing to apologize for. It was a joke based on a fact! I remember back when Nancy was doing it. Obama never said that Pres. Reagan used it. He mentioned Nancy only. And I believe he did so as to say he talked to the other living Presidents, but didn't want to try to contact Ronnie!

    It was a joke! Cut him some slack!!!

    Yeh, it was like he was poking fun at all the news freaks that were over analyzing him and his campaign, but just subtle enough that he could blame it on fatigue. icon_lol.gif

    I hope and pray I don't get to love Obama. I usually leaders I dislike but respect are the more effective ones. With any luck Obama has a ruthless streak in him. If does not have one he will have to develop one very quickly otherwise Congress will run roughshod over him.
