    I'm glad Ronald Reagan did place such a great importance on marriage and valuing the woman he loves. I don't think he was necessarily any better than Obama though as somebody suggested. As pointed out, he *did* divorce. I still think Reagan did value marriage, but I do think he wasn't better than certain other people. While getting a divorce doesn't make one somebody who doesn't value marriage, I do have to point out that Obama hasn't divorced.

    Instead of making idols out of some Presidents and villains out of others using marriage as an excuse, why not just admire one's words of wisdom regarding marriage and leave it at that?

    They are both beating on the same dead horse.
    Before the primary ended, nearly everybody here was a Romney basher. Just saying.

    Yes, yes they were/are. However our choices have been somewhat narrowed now

    We could say they are spending like drunken sailors. That would be unfair to drunken sailors, they're spending their OWN money.

    I guess we wouldn't need primaries if everyone backed the same candidate from day one, why does she need this explained?
    How is obama working out for you?

    No, I didn't disagree, but it's a little curious that it's only about sexual fidelity. There is a lot more to marriage - even for 26 year old guys. :)

    I probably am a "RINO" by the lights of most people here - I was raised by what used to be known as "country club Republicans" and that is still the metier in which I'm comfortable. But I worked at the RNC during the Reagan administration and liked them both (especially Nancy, who was as contemptuous of "social" conservatives as I tend to be!).

    It's weird that you analyze my posts at all. I don't spend much time on yours!

    Or he knew his own weaknesses and how they contributed to the end of his marriage to Jane Wyman.

    Although it's gotten lost in the thread, the book referred to in the OP is wonderful.
    Good men sleep peaceably in their beds at night because
    rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
