We All Knew Reagan was Money

While I was home from work today, I was watching FOX News and saw a commercial that got me thinking…

It’s about time we really started thinking about putting Reagan on something again. I mean an airport is cool, an office building token, but Ronaldus Magnus on money? I think it’s really worth exploring once more. Some have been contemplating the idea for a few years now. Some people thought Rushmore might even be in the cards, but in my opinion Reagan needs his own mountain if that were the case.

FDR v. Reagan– two political titans of their age, each an 800 pound gorilla in the realm of politics, each shaped politics for future generations both during their tenures and after they left office, each has an enduring legacy that few 20th cenutry Presidents could manage. Yet, messing with our money… maybe. Hamilton’s on the $10– a genius, but he was never President and was a bit eccentric. Neither was Franklin, but he’s a transcendant American titan. FDR? Let the debate resume, now just two years after Reagan’s death!

If Reagan and FDR shared the dime, FDR would be tails.

I think that would be a GREAT idea!!! I’m sure we could imagine how up in arms the libs would be if this occurred…more so than when Congress had to layeth the smacketh down to WMATA over the re-naming issue . Reagan’s face on money beats his name on an airport anyday.
