And yes I did have to look it up in Merriam-Websters.

Maybe some of you saw it, politico had a post about it and the last time I checked it had 968 comments, the vast majority nut cases and racists.

I need to read a balance of opinions so please let me know what you think.

In today's press conference a reporter asked about living Presidents, the new dog and the girl's new school.

I wish he had left out the Nancy Reagan reference. But I think the 3 part question was light and innocent.

I am sure he did not meant to offend anyone, but he probably did, and I also kept thinking , I would call Ron Reagan and try to figure if anyone was offended.

But then again there is a lot more going on, like 2 Wars and people loosing their jobs, so I think it was a sincerely innocent joke.

I did follow the link from Drudge, Mea culpa.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
