RR Jr.: The nude picture of his sister Patti in Playboy was "just something that is not too exciting."
WFB: "Why then was there so much excitement about it?"
RR Jr.: As for his father's reaction when he dropped out of Yale to join the ballet, "That was fine with him."
WFB: "It wasn't fine with him and he enlisted my aid in trying to persuade you to stay in college."
RR Jr.: Having three cats while being childless "is like having children." WFB: "No, it's not like having children."
RR Jr.: As to whether his mother helps him out financially, "Of course not. My father felt that children should make their own way."
WFB: "I know, and you know that I know, something about that question. But to say that 'of course' your mother does not help you out suggests she will not do so even if there were a need. Are you saying she would not acknowledge you in her will?"
RR Jr.: As to the Abu Ghraib prison abuses, "How can Christians tolerate it?"
WFB: "I don't know of any Christians who 'tolerate it.' The perpetrators are reviled."
RR Jr.: In an answer to a question, he said he did not vote for Bush in the last election.
WFB: "Odd that you should permit this invasion of privacy whose only purpose is to remark the political infidelity of the son of Ronald Reagan."
RR Jr.: His father "worked hard to impress upon his children the value of kindness."
WFB: "If he did, he was manifestly unsuccessful."
This is more than a wayward son, at age 46 with a career seemingly going nowhere, seeking 15 minutes of fame. He has signed with MSNBC as a "contributor" for the 2004 campaign. It is a windfall for Democratic operatives to quote the son of Ronald Reagan saying of Republicans: "I couldn't join a party that, frankly, tolerates members who are bigots for one thing, homophobes, racists."
Sorry Ron Jr. No matter how hard you try and paint your father as a liberal democrat, he was most definitely a conservative republican. Nothing can change that.
