Happy 100th Birthday President Reagan

"Ronald Reagan at 100: The President, the Pope and the Medicine of Forgiveness" by Michael Reagan “On my father's 100th birthday, I think back to the assassination attempt on his life in March 1981. That day, the Secret Service told me that my wife Colleen and I, our two children, and my sisters Maureen and Patti would take a military transport from Los Angeles to Washington that night. My brother Ron would arrive separately.”

“Ronald Reagan at 100” by Charlie Gerow “Today marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of Ronald Wilson Reagan. If he were alive, he would probably say it’s the 71st anniversary of his 29th birthday. I’m looking forward to the celebrations in California today focused on the theme “Ronald Reagan: Inspired Freedom. Changed the World.”

Maine Republicans honor Reagan, celebrate

The Maine legislature honored late President Reagan’s legacy on Tuesday by passing a joint resolution in tribute to Reagan for the 100th anniversary of his birth, which will be this Sunday, February 6. Governor Paul LePage signed a similar proclamation, declaring February 6, 2011 Ronald Reagan Day.

Governor LePage expressed his sentiment toward Reagan: "I have several presidential heroes, and Ronald Reagan is one. The real tie is I pledge myself to read a lot and study Reagan, so that by the time I'm done being governor, I will be politically correct."

In addition, Maine Republicans celebrated Reagan’s birthday with a ceremony in the State House Hall of Flags. The festivities featured a video from Grover Norquist, chairman of the Ronald Reagan Legacy Project and founder of Americans for Tax Reform, created at the request of President Reagan in 1985.

Maine Senate President Kevin Raye said of Reagan: "He was the most gifted communicator ever to occupy the White House.”
