Did anyone else catch this during Robert Gates interview on FTN?

There was a discussion of the age of Presidential candidates. After discussing the challenges of the office for men in their 70's, he remarked that Reagan was that old during his 2nd term, but he was still a pretty good President.

What?!?!?!? Has he forgotten that Reagan was suffering the onset of Alzheimer's during his 2nd term?

1. Gates is nothing but a war monger. GOP worships Reagan, senility and all.

3. I'm sure the Repukes all let that pass

The first commandment of the GOP:
"Thou shalt not speak ill of St. Ronald Reagan."

5. Actually, he was having problems in his first term, and, inside DC knew in 1976 there was problems.

Rarely left alone in meetings.
