Not McDonalds new Sandwich, just lies from the republicans. I will also have a Newt Gingrich Whopper soon.
In Reagan's time as president/running for preisdent, he told great stories of evil liberals. None of them were true, but they were great stories.
Oh sure he said they were true, he acted as if they were true, but nope, nada, wrong! What are some of these Reagan Whoppers?
Remember Reagan’s welfare queen in Chicago? She had bilked the government for $150,000 by applying for benefits using eighty different names, thirty
addresses, a dozen social security cards, and four fictional dead husbands.
Attempts to confirm the story yielded only one woman who received $8,000 by using two false names.
This one about England, where “if a criminal carried a gun,
even if he didn’t use it, he was tried for first-degree murder and hung if he was found
guilty.” Not true.
Or one from hus childhood that was "true".
It was during his senior year, and, as Reagan tells it, his team was behind
in the last few seconds of the fourth quarter. Just as the final gun went off, Reagan caught a pass in the end zone for the winning touchdown. Only
trouble was, Reagan had been offside. So he did the only thing he could. He went to the ref and told him about the infraction.
“I told the truth, the penalty was ruled, and Dixon lost the game.” The punch line of the story was that none of Reagan’s teammates was upset.
After all, he told the truth.
Cannon went back to Dixon, and no one could recall the incident. In fact, in the only varsity game in which Reagan played, Dixon lost 24-0.
Wow, and Reagan was a pretty nice guy. All info comes from Reagan speeches, brought out by Al Franken Rush Limbaugh is a Big Fat Idiot.
really long link to some of the BS stories told by Reagan.
Edit: I know he's dead, and not wanting to bash Reagan, but the truth is the truth, is it
