Would Reagan Support Same-sex Marriage? Daughter Says Yes

President Reagan's daughter Patti Davis says she believes her father would have supported same-sex marriage.

"I don't think he would stand in the way of two people wanting to make a commitment to one another," Davis said during an interview with public relations expert Howard Bragman. "He told me when I was very young that some men love other men, some women love other women." Bragman appeared on Jansing & Co . Thursday to talk about the interview he conducted with Davis Wednesday.

"She also told the great story about when her parents would go out of town, they had this lesbian couple-which she called them aunt so-and-so and aunt so-and-so and she knew they were a couple-and her parents would go out of town and they would stay and babysit her and her brother Ron and sleep in her parents king size bed." Davis made this political point during the interview about her father: "I also think because he wanted government out of people's lives, that he would not understand the intrusion of government banning such a thing. This is not what he would have thought government should be doing." A new Quinnipiac University poll out Thursday shows 50% of American voters support marriage equality while 41% oppose it.

Some conservatives are rejecting Davis' characterization of what she believes her father would have supported.

"Of course, Reagan did associate with all the Hollywood crowd, and chances are he probably knew a number of gays," conservative activist Phyllis Schlafly said . "I could understand that he might not have wanted to bar them from a job but that would not mean he would want them to get a marriage license." Davis' half-brother Michael Reagan responded to his half-sister's comments in the Washington Post saying people should not make assumptions about what their father's position might be on same-sex marriage if he were alive today.

"You'd have to ask him," Reagan said. "I think my father gets dragged into too many things." Michael Reagan grabbed headlines earlier this week for his op-ed against same-sex marriage, slamming the Republican Party for not doing enough to fight same-sex marriage because members are "too busy cat-fighting with each other." Davis told Bragman she would not "get into a family feud" with her half-brother.

"It's stirring a lot of discussion which is the best part about it," Bragman told msnbc's Chris Jansing. "People who remember a different Republican party, one that didn't use social issues to drive us apart to divide and conquer, remember a Republican party that was, as [Davis] described, that liked to stay out of people's lives and out of people's bedrooms."

Is a King Size Bed for You? - King Size Bed Dimensions
There is a common space-related concern regarding king beds. Even if your bedroom is large enough, how will you get it up the stairs and through your hallways? Fortunately, buying a bed in a box solves this problem: the mattress is compacted for shipping, so when your mattress arrives, you can simply move the box into your bedroom, set it out, and then let it expand to its full size.how much can a full sized pick up truck hold?A long-bed pickup truck can probably haul your stuff. Some of the items will need to be stackedWhats a good, full sized .45 ACP?I would say for the money and reliability, either get a glock 21, 30, or 36 (however, I would recommend a glock 21. It's reliable, well built and in the middle of you price range- $547) trust me, glocks are very good, very high quality guns. - there worth EVER pennyhow tall does a young man need to be for a full sized bicycle??If you are 5'1", he will need to grow about an inch. Or, if his inseam is 27" and yours is 26" give him the bike now. Or, if he is 25 years old (young to me) and to small for the bike, keep telling him he is going to grow up one day and you are saving the bike for him - it's fun to mess with short people, and people who ask how long a piece of string is.what materials would be used to make a full size car cast?it would be a lot easier to use a real car--just call a wrecking company and say you need a non-running car with all of the fluids drained. Preferably have them remove the gas tank. If you get a car without an engine, put sandbags in the engine compartment to weigh it down or the front will sit too high and it will look stupid.Why Do The Make Women Play On Full-Sized Football Pitches?Having to lay out different sized pitches would not be practical. You might have a point with goal size though. That would be easy enough to rig.Can a full sized computer keyboard be used on your lap?I do not see why not...as long as its usb you should be able to use itJunior or full-sized road bike?1st off, 14 yo and 5 feet tall. Sounds like you will grow over the next few years. 5 feet is tall enough for an adult bike. Some women at your height like to use 650c instead of 700c wheels. That's OK but wheels, tires and tubes are harder to find. But if you think you will be several inches taller in the next couple years just go with a 700 wheeled road bike. You do not necessarily need a women's fit bike, but certainly try 'em. Also, the bike you posted a link to is OK, I think you could get that level bike a little cheaper. But that basic type is not bad at all. You may want to look at sloped top tube designs like the Giant OCR model bikes. They are popular with shorter riders.Please suggest a good full size stroller for 7 month old.?i have a graco stroller and i love it. i prefer graco over any other company. i bought my car seat and stroller as a set for $200. i had a 20% off coupon and an additional 30% off for opening a store card so i saved over $80 on the travel system. i bought mine at babiesrus. but you can check online on babiesrus or walmart or target and compare prices.Where can I find a full sized image of this photo?Sweet picture Pysch!

However, it is heavy so if possible, purchase it at your destination so it does not take up as much of your weight allowance (checked baggage is usually 50 pounds). I would remove the caps of each, cover with saran wrap, and then replace the caps. I would also wrap them in grocery bags. This will prevent them from ruining everything in your luggage if pressure changes or the jostling causes them to leak or explode.
