Like many “Conservatives”, I hold Ronald Reagan in very high esteem. I know that many other do not feel the same way, but I can’t help it if they’re wrong.
Though he died two years ago, he lives on in many ways, not the least of which is one of the most powerful warships on the face of the earth:
Port Klang, Malaysia (June 3, 2006) – In an early morning transit, the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76) prepares to enter Port Klang for a scheduled port visit. This port call marks the first time Reagan has visited the country of Malaysia. Reagan and Carrier Air Wing One Four (CVW-14) are currently on a regularly scheduled deployment in support of the Global War on Terrorism and Maritime Security Operations (MSO).

Also like many “Conservatives”, I wish “Republicans” were a bit more like the old Gipper…
UPDATE; More Reagan at Wizbang.
