Reagan didn't keep his own 11th Commandment
There is a letter floating around from one of the candidates for Chairman of the Sussex County Republican Committee that quotes the so-called "11th Commandment" of Ronald Reagan: "Thou shalt not speak ill of any fellow Republican."
Now anyone with even a little knowledge of the history behind Reagan's electoral success understands that Reagan didn't actually practice this. If he had, he would have never secured the nomination in1980 and would have never gone on to be a successful President. Ronald Reagan was fierce, ruthless campaigner. Here are two of his campaign ads from 1976 that attack the incumbent Republican President, Gerald Ford.
The so-called "11th Commandment" is nothing more than a bed time story told by people who should know better.
