    Ron Reagan Saw Signs of Father's Alzheimer's at White House

    Ron Reagan Saw Signs of Father's Alzheimer's at White House - ABC News

    It is always the family that see the sign's first, but if the family and his advisor's hid this fact from the rest of the world... then damn.. Why on earth if they knew, did they allow him to run for a second term? Who ran the country for the whole of Reagan's second term then?

    "Why did they allow him to run for a second term?" Probably because it's easier to get what you want out of a guy whose brain is rotting away.

    "Who ran the country during his second term?" Probably the people who profited the most under captain dementia's reign.

    Alzheimer's becomes noticeable to family long before it becomes debilitating, in a lot of cases.

    Little memory loss effects many in slight ways and if you were around to watch President Reagan in action during his second turn you will not be able to point to any incident that I am aware of where the signs were noticeable. At least I don't remember seeing any.

    There were joke made about how he would sleep during Cabinet Meetings but mostly those jokes were laughed off.

    As to who may have been in charge keep in mind that George H.W. Bush was his VP and it was said many times that Nancy was the brains behind the scenes.

    I think to bring this up when there are no problems you can point to that put the nation at risk is just spinning your wheels and besides I doubt the authenticity of the story based on the source.

    Any one who ever had a head injury can have memory loss look at Jim McMahon, he said he suffer from it and he's pretty young, and still functioning.

    If something had happened where we could say, "Oh well that explains that." we'd have something to talk about.

    If true, and it wouldn't suprise me too much, I doubt anyone even noticed it at the time. Ron Regan is speaking in hindsight.

    actually, a number of citizens expressed alarm - especially in regan's second term - that he was showing signs of senility
    those concerns were countered with public information officer statements that what was being observed were the after affects of someone of regan's age after he sustained the wounds from the assault by hinckley

    I can already see the liberals lining up to take their shots. And in doing so, they show their complete ignorance of this horrible disease. People would have attacked Reagan for being senile, whether he showed signs or not. And I gotta say, the man did a hell of a job, even if he was in the early stages. God bless him for all he did for this country. He remains the greatest president of my lifetime.

    Ron Reagan is a liberal fool who has hated his father ever since he left Ron’s mother.

    actually, a number of citizens expressed alarm
    Now that you mention it I do remember the liberal horde running in circles screaming that President Reagan was crazy.

    A number of citizens? Yes, a number of (far left) citizens often express concern over a (republican) president's intelectual abilities

    only in this instance it turns out that our concerns were very legitimate
    verdict seems in on the concerns about the shrub, too
