I know Reagan was a Republican while in office.....

 

 

 

But to not even give one Democrat the chance to speak....damn.

Das,

 

It was a very select group chosen.

 

Sandra Day O'Conner (close friend and appointee of Mr. Reagan)

President George W. Bush (US president and very close friends with Mr. and Mrs. Reagan)

Former President George H.W. Bush (US vice president and close friend of Mr. Reagan)

The Honorable Brian Mulroney (close friend of Mr. Reagan)

The Baroness Margaret Thatcher (close friend of Mr. Reagan)

 

This was not a political service

This was not a political service i'm not just talking about today. Well, at the rotunda, the Vice President (very close friend of Reagan and speaking for the President), Speaker of the House (addressed the family for the house) and President of the Senate (addressed the family for the Senate). They were the only ones who under tradition would speak.

Too bad he missed it, shows that France is not a world power any more.

oh give me break. Now they're not a world power any more? They haven't been a world power since WWII. This is true. The IOC is thinking about replacing French with Spanish as the second official language next to English.

dont give me crap about tradition.

 

 

it would of been nice to just have one Democrat be allowed to give their respects, and share a light hearted story or two about Reagan.

 

 

 

if only to keep Democrats from aruging about this.

 

 

 

At Nixon's funeral both Republicans and Democrats spoke.

that is who they chose, if you don't like it, too bad. It was a good service and very appropriate for Ronald Reagan. When you plan your state funeral Das, maybe you can get some Democrats to speak, but that is your choice.

the democrat speaking has no place in the ceremony if the Reagans didn't want it.

 

It is tradition for only select speakers to speak. While Jacob Javits did speak at the JFK service at the Rotunda, he was an important member of Congress.
