"There must be a pony in here somewhere": Twenty Years with Ronald Reagan

£8.99

Product description

February 6th, 2011 would have been the 100th birthday of a man who is remembered as a friend, as a father, as a movie actor -- and as the leader of the free world for two terms during a time of major world change.
John A. Svahn's There Must Be a Pony in Here Somewhere is a candid reflection from one of Ronald Reagan's chief policy advisors, given the opportunity to observe many meaningful moments and events. Svahn served in four Reagan administrations and played a critical role in some of Ronald Reagan's most controversial and successful domestic initiatives, including the overhaul of California's welfare system and the shoring up of the nation's social security program. Anecdotes of a more lighthearted nature are also recounted, including Dan Rather's impromptu serenade for the president's seventy-fourth birthday.

Throughout every challenge, including the ramifications of what the author terms his ''biggest mistake,'' Ronald Reagan stayed the course with his integrity, character, and wit intact. Svahn conveys his fondness for the complex and often eccentric nature of American politics, and pays homage to his friend and colleague as his number one ''Reaganite'' in this engaging and touching memoir.
