Used to hate the womwn - now, with time, I feel sorry for her. Anyone else softened about this nasty woman thru the years ?
In her honor.. I'll just say "No"
She was terribly common and so nouveau riche.
Mrs. Barbara Bush
I hope she lives for at least another 5 yrs to become the longest lived First Lady.
She did the best she could
I haven't thought about her in at least 10 years. She's the Leif Garrett of First Ladies.
She had nice China !
When it happens, I'll be burnin', doin' the Casket Dance.
She was the tiniest First Lady. Barbara Bush, Hillary, Laura Bush, Michelle... they all look like giantesses next to Nancy.
The china was donated. Tax payers paid nothing
[RE10] Uh huh. Sure.
I will go down on my knees in the park tonight, in her honour.
When she's dead, Bush Sr's dead, as well as Babs, the Reagan years will become a blurb.
[quote]I hope she lives for at least another 5 yrs to become the longest lived First Lady.
Why? Do you have money riding on this or something? Get a life, hon.
She's a bitter old hag, no sympathy. She ate cake while many others suffered. Hope she dies painfully.
R16 you suffered because you are a loser, not because of Nancy Reagan.
Yes, I typically feel sorry for people who are weak or fragile in some way. She starved herself for years. She's probably got hellacious osteoporosis and is likely in constant pain. She never had the riches she wanted and the man she worshipped is dead. She is too fragile to really go anywhere. Her kids made up with her, but she probably still doesn't think much of them.
Only 92 my ass! What did she do, ask an unglued Ronnie to do the math?
I loathed Nancy Reagan when her husband was president, but I do feel sorry for her now.
I don't feel sorry for Nancy. She's actually luckier than she deserves to be, in that her children have reconciled with her and she has good relationships with them now - considering what a terrible mother she was, that's more than she deserves!
Now that she's 92, I no longer think of Nancy Resgan as a cunt.
She now has the wise aura of a WITHERED, OLD cunt.
A vile old bag of cunt.
Will she be going to MichFest?
Does Adolfo have a line for the elderly?
Oh, the other reason Nancy is luckier than she deserves to be - Republicans have basically won the messaging war on her husband's legacy to the point where even Democrats (with varying degrees of grudging-ness) play along with the idea that Reagan was a great president, or at least a very important one (witness Obama's comment in '08 that Clinton wasn't a "transformational" president like Reagan, which I thought was petty and inappropriate of him). Considering the fact that Nancy main obsession for sixty years has been Ronald Reagan's reputation, it is a big win for her that she gets to spend her old age with her husband being seen as a revered icon instead of being remembered as the total fuck-up he actually was!
R19, she is a astrology-addled bitter cunt! and brought shame to the white house! No WAY was i a loser back then, she was despicable!
All the Anais Anais and White Linen in the world and you still stink like shit, Nancy.
Shall I yell it in your other ear?
Nasty, vile woman who helped cover the fact that her husband's dementia left the nation with no functioning President for several years.
Edith Wilson II: second wife, sick husband
Wow, she looks so frail in that picture. Her legs are a mess. Never liked her, though. She seemed so vapid, so shallow. She deferred to Ronnie so much it was disgusting.
r28, the Reagan legacy will not remain that way as more and more people who worshipped him die off. In the next 20 years we'll have a more accurate picture of what a total fuck-up he was.
Age doesn't usually turn a horrible person into a good one. I still hate her prune faced guts.
Did Sinatra's mammouth cock leave any scarring inside her mouth?
[quote] She seemed so vapid, so shallow.
she was beyond shallow
SHUT THE FUCK UP R15! I'll say WHATEVER I want about Nancy Reagan.
She seems to have curtailed most appearances, but if anything I did feel bad about how the Republicans would still trot her out up until a few years ago. She always looks very confused and way too old to be in the spotlight.
I wonder if she feels uncomfortable about how far to the right the GOP has moved. Notice she seems to favor the GOP leaders who are moderate and who never win. Nowadays Reagan's policies would be pretty to the left of the GOP.
Next to Jennifer Aniston, Nancy Reagan is my favorite trophy wife.
[quote]I loathed Nancy Reagan when her husband was president, but I do feel sorry for her now.
Why in the world would you feel sorry for her?
She's had a very long life, and has ALWAYS been wealthy and privileged (her stepfather was a wealthy doctor and sent her to Smith), and she has been powerful for most of t to boot. She has two living children who visit her all the time.
I cannot imagine a human being LESS in need of pity than she is.
R41, she never gave a shit about politics. she just wanted to suck Ronnie's cock and ride that ride he provided.
I always liked the old hag.
[quote]now, with time, I feel sorry for her
Why? Because you're an old cunt now, too?
Horrible woman, wretched presidency.
She stole the new White house china.
Somehow it is comforting to know that she is drooling into her cream of wheat and wearing diapers.
Your comments show that you are all vile pieces of shit. I hope you all get worts.
Billy Joel said it best through song - "Only the Good Die Young"
Tax payers were on the hook for her hairstylist on all of her overseas trips.
[quote]you suffered because you are a loser, not because of Nancy Reagan.
That's what I told Ronald Reagan when he got Alzheimer's.
I'm so glad she made up with her kids. It's such messy work disinheriting children.
Why isn't she the Patron Saint of Datalounge? She was one of the best cocksuckers in classic Hollywood. Her mouth was rumored to bring grown men to their knees. And she swallowed.
R54=Miss Joan Crawford
What is sickening is that we taxpayers are still billed hundreds of thousands annually for a rich old lady's personal security even though she is scarcely at risk of any harm.
R57: Lady Bird Johnson said her security protection lasted too long--one reason it stops(after George W. Bush & his wife, I believe) at some point. Bush was in office when the change was made, so it begins with the next president.
It has been reinstated for presidents and their wives.
Ron Reagan jr. is still very liberal (and proud to admit it). He spoke out against Bush and the Iraq War and voted for Kerry and Obama.
Why wouldn't she make up with the other kids? They've completely embraced the Reagan myth that has been slopped upon the public.
[quote] Why wouldn't she make up with the other kids?
For starters Patti wrote a tell all book (The Way I See It) where she claims Nancy beat her and was a prescription drug abuser.
R61 That book was written a few years before Patti publicly said she regretted acting out against her parents.
Whatever else you say about her Nancy was the most stylish and elegant first lady since Jacqueline Kennedy. She was also a social liberal, and according to Pattis supports gay marriage, although she shared her husband's conservative economics!
America, I’m not your pet gay.
America, I never said I wanted to marry you. Can’t we just live together?
America, I’m not a Care Bear on your suburban lawn with an adopted Guatemalan baby in my arms and my legal-in-twelve-states-and-DC husband weeping beside me and humming the score of Rent through his grateful tears.
America, I’m not a happy happy drag queen sent to earth by Jesus, Cher, and Harvey Fierstein to teach joy and love and endurance to straight people in tour buses. . .
92 or not, if I met her I would urinate in her mouth and tell her it was a requirement of my job.
I think Nancy's major style misfire was the inaugural balls in '81. I think she was too old for an off-the-shoulder gown, and the cut of it, with no waist, looked sort of dowdy on her anyway. Plus I don't think the pulled-back hair is flattering to her; her normal puffy helmet-head hairdo better balanced her tininess and gauntness (which maybe she realized too, since I don't think I've ever seen a picture of her with pulled-back hair after this).
Hunter S Thompson had the best quote on Nancy
“I had a soft spot in my heart for Ronald Reagan, if only because he was a sportswriter in his youth, and also because his wife gave the best head in Hollywood.”
[R67] Agree, she improved after that
Starving herself to remain thin caused her to become even more crazy and delusional.
Wicked old witch
Recently read a Rock Hudson bio, apparently Nancy wanted to visit Rock in hospital when he was very ill, dying in fact. Ronnie said no way. Risk of contagion etc. So she wished him well over the phone.
r67 - When Nancy was First Lady of California, a magazine writer referred to her "piano legs" in a profile (and the writer didn't mean a delicate spinet). Kitty Kelley said Nancy was so devastated she kept her legs covered as much as possible after that, which accounts for those bizarrely unflattering ball gowns.
(Being Kitty Kelley, she had to include a rare shot of Nancy in a bathing suit... and, yes, they were an unfortunately thick pair of ugly gams.)
Interesting, I would never have read "piano legs" as meaning thick - I would have read it as meaning scrawny, skinny legs, I guess because piano legs are small compared to the large thing they're holding up.
I remember when she was first lady Evita had its first run on Broadway.
There was a popular poster or post card with the first lady on Evita's balcony in that famous pose with the word:
I cant find the image, it was obviously a parody but it was dead serious to me.
Will she now beard for Henry Cavill?
After years of animosity, Nancy made nice with Jane Wyman at Maureen Reagan's funeral, where they both participated in the service and were photographed together outside the church.
"Your comments show that you are all vile pieces of shit. I hope you all get worts."
Oh c'mon Paula Deen at R50, just think of "Nancy" as the other 'N' word and join in the fun!
I bet you anything Nancy was acting passive aggressive to Jane all day, r77.
Isn't that a rather short skirt for a woman of NR's age to be wearing to a funeral? One suspects that Nancy knew full well that the short skirt gave her mourning-wear a casual look.
Patti looks genuinely upset in the funeral pic.
Ron, Jr. and his beard of a wife, not so much.
Vile bitch. She always came across as stupid to me. And another reason to hate her is that she is friends with Betsy Bloomingdale. I wonder if Nancy is consulting her astrologers and mediums and tries to keep in touch with Ronnie.
Is Betsey Bloomingdale still alive? She would have to be 110 by now.
Bloomingdale is still alive. My guess is she is about Nancy's age or a bit younger.
Nothing to feel sorry about re Nancy Reagan. She has had quite a life. Not high on my list of favorite First Ladies although the stories about her are awfully amusing. Just open any page randomly in Kitty Kelly's book. If only part of it is true, she is still quite a piece of work. But then the spouses of many politicians who go far are. Eleanor Roosevelt was an extraordinary woman, but not a very good mother. Not easy living that life. That said I sure admire ER more than NR.
The Reagans were good friends of Johnny Carson.
One night in his monologe, he called Nancy "Evita of Beverly Hills". The Reagans never spoke to him again!
However one thinks about her, the woman has led an amazing life.
Well she really loved her husband and took good care of him. Everyone has done something nice.
