Ronald Reagan led America forward to defeat the threats to our prosperity of high taxes, inflation, and recession at home and a surging Soviet Empire abroad. He left America stronger, freer, and safer than the day he became President, according to many - but most certainly not all. The considerable contingent of Leftist loons have hated him from the beginning, and as is usual for Leftists, celebrated his death.
This year, forty state governors have issued proclamations declaring Feb. 6 Ronald Reagan Day - even folks like California's Governor Moonbeam have recognized the day. Those who have outright refused to do so are, of course, all Tolerant™ Democratics, which should surprise no one.
The eight governors who have refused to issue a proclamation declaring Ronald Reagan Day in their states:
Arkansas - Mike Beebe (D)
Delaware - Jack Markell (D)
Hawaii - Neil Abercrombie (D)
Kentucky - Steve Beshear (D)
Massachusetts - Deval Patrick (D)
Minnesota - Mark Dayton (D)
Oregon - John Kitzhaber (D)
Vermont - Peter Shumlin (D)
Two other governors - both Democrats - failed to reveal their intentions either way.
