    It seems to me it would be more professional and sensitive to refer to Mrs. Reagan as Nancy in lieu of "Reagan" which seems very disrespectful and cold. Just a thought.

    Queen Nancy? Liberals throw a hissy fit when NBC calls Mrs. Obama out over wearing shorts on Air Force 1 and label another woman as a racist for making the same comment and yet they show their class and decorum by addressing a Republican First Lady as Queen Nancy? Wives and families are off limits boys...it's called being disrespectful. Take your political beefs out on the President who ran for the office and where the buck stops and try and show a little class for a change.

    Ed Grady....
    You are reminded about Beirut? Why?

    What happened in Benghazi has nothing similar with Beirut (outside the fact that it is the first thing liberal bring up).

    The two incidents has no common issues. In Benghazi it was a well know fact that it was a hotspot for terrorist. Many attempts on US and British embassies had already occurred. While in Beirut the attack was unforeseen and really the first time a military target had been hit by a terrorist organization.

    Second, Reagan let the American people know what was going on and who was to blame. Obama has been trying to spin this so he can not be blamed for it.

    These two incidents have nothing in common, only in the minds of liberals who will do anything to deflect from them taking responsibility for their actions.

    Re: "Ronald Reagan tripled the national debt. Can'[t] say that about Obama."

    Give him time.

    He has more than doubled it, so far. And, he has more than three years left of deranged liberal spending to go.

    The unfunded mandates created by Obamacare and its inevitable fallout, bailout, and wipeout, together with Obama's permanent adoption of the deranged liberal tactic of "quantitative easing," will eclipse President Reagan's measly record for increasing American debt, in a spectacular way.

    Ronald Reagan created 21 millions jobs.

    Ronald Reagan cut inflation in half.

    Ronald Reagan cut interest rates in half.

    Ronald Reagan defeated the Soviet Union without firing a single shot.

    Ronald Reagans last two deficits were $150 billion dollars.

    Ronald Reagan knew how to compromise and work with the Opposition Party that Controlled the House.

    Can't say any of that about Obama.

    Have a great day.

    I agree - there is little comparison between Beirut and Benghazi - at least in the carnage and death toll in American lives. Four (4) American diplomats died in Benghazi. Two-hundred-forty-one (241) American servicemen died in Beirut. Hey, Ronnie went big or he didn't go at all.

    @Ed Grady

    You forgot two important details:

    1 - Reagan owned up to Beirut and had a national broadcast to talk to America about it. When is the last time a liberal has owned up to anything negative?

    2 - The bombing in Beirut was instant and nothing could be done. Benghazi took place over several hours and when the SEALs asked for help they were denied. Reagan would have backed up the SEALs in Benghazi based on his track record.

    This is not even close to being an apples to apples comparison.

    Whenever conservatives rant about the death of Americans in Benghazi, I'm reminded of the number of Marines killed in the Beirut bombing during the Reagan reign. How peppery was Queen Nancy when that happened?

    You've got to be kidding. A merry free zone? Sure, because all the great leaders if this world have been known for how merry they were.

    Since Peggy Noonan wouldn't divulge what was said, I'll take on faith her characterizing Nancy's views on the current White House as peppery. I respect the right of the former First Lady who consulted astrologers to have her views kept in confidence.

    If it was not for Regean's runaway decifits, the lies and deceptions of Iran-Contra and tax increases many may have assumed it was BO in the White House.

    "Two articles on Noonan? This paper is most definitely in one political camp. I assume the ownership is happy with this?"

    Good Point. Why can't the DNews be like every other newspaper and attack and impune conservatives while glorifying liberals.

    Newspapers should do their job like the New York Times, the Washington Post and MSNBC. No conservative like Peggy Noonan should ever have a right to have their speeches covered (at least positively) let alone twice.

    Within days after president Reagan left office Nancy Reagan made the statement "I'm pro Choice". Hmmm It would have been nice if she would have admitted this when President Reagan was running for office. Most people don't realize that were it not for president Reagans choice of Sandra O'Connor for the supreme court Roe vs Wade would have been overturned. Was it his wife's sentiments why president Reagan didn't do due diligence when nominating a Supreme Court Justice? When running for office he certainly presented himself as someone who would work to defend the rights of the unborn.
