Interesting story bit....even in this story in 2010, the press are still trying to devalue Reagan:
The story says, "Recent presidents have had a number of medical scares." It then lists choking on food (Bush), fainting (Bush I, Carter), tripping and falling (Clinton)....then almost in passing the story says, "Ronald Reagan was shot in the chest in a 1981 assassination attempt." Ho-hum, just another "medical scare."
They just can't help themselves,....to them, Ronald Reagan taking a bullet in the chest is just another "medical scare." They lump the courageous and heroic Obama, who took an elbow to the puss playing ball with his yes-men, to Reagan, who (yawn) was SHOT IN THE CHEST AND ALMOST DIED.
