Thursday, we blogged about actor Will Ferrell’s reported plans to play Ronald Reagan in a “comedy” about Reagan’s Alzheimer’s plight.

Despite movie media reporting to the contrary, Reagan wasn’t diagnosed with Alzheimer’s until after he left the White House.

President Reagan’s daughter and son both spoke about against plans to make film. Patti...

Donald Trump has a “favorability” problem. Poll after poll shows Trump doing poorly against Hillary Clinton head-to-head, perhaps reflecting Trump’s historically low levels of favorability (and high levels of unfavorability) for a leading major party candidate.

In response, a meme was created and spread far and wide earlier this month that Trump’s favorability is no...

1984 Ronald Reagan

Many conservatives opine that what we need after Obama’s disastrous presidency is the same cure we had after Jimmy Carter’s disastrous presidency: a Ronald Reagan.

This desire isn’t lost on the Republican candidates for president.  Many are comparing themselves to President Reagan in the hopes of stoking, even fulfilling, that hope.  One...

In 1985, President Reagan gave his Veteran’s Day Address at Arlington National Cemetery. With the Cold War a fresh threat, Reagan emphasized the importance of peace...

Earlier this week, Ted Cruz appeared on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert.  It was an interesting appearance in a few respects, but what stood out to me is how confident and relaxed Cruz remained in the face of Colbert’s questions and an often hostile audience.

The identity of the Scorpion is not mentioned.

But it’s obvious.

Welcome to Labor Day—the calendar’s signal that the August doldrums are behind us, and that it’s time for a long slog toward “The Holidays” and the inevitable pedal-to-the-floor pace of an election year.

During my family’s visit of Berlin, Germany yesterday, an American president was prominently featured as part of the tour we took.

Our guide spoke glowingly of a speech that he heard, and one which still resonates with him to this day.

During my visit to the Reagan Ranch, we also made a tour of the Reagan Ranch Center in Santa Barbara. Both are run by Young America’s Foundation.

On display was the jeep used by President Reagan on the ranch, including when he gave a tour to Mikhail Gorbachev in 1992.

There also was on display a section of the Berlin Wall, next to a video of Reagan’s famous “Tear Down This Wall” speech.
