Happy Birthday Mr. President

Ronald Reagan was born on February 6,  1911.  He was the 40th President of the United States.  He liked jelly beans, had a really skinny wife, and got shot.  He also looks just like the actor Ronald Reagan, only older.

Three other Presidents were born in February.  They are...

Born February 9, 1773.  He was the first President to die in office, after only thirty-one days.  This also makes him the president with the shortest term.  And, he looks an awful lot like the British actor, James Cromwell.


Born February 12, 1809.  He was first President ever assassinated, and he emancipated the slaves.  He was very tall, his wife was mentally ill, and he looked a little like actor Harry Dean Stanton with a beard.

Born February 22, 1732.  He was the first President.  He was very tall for his day, had no children, liked ice cream, and had false teeth made of wood.  He has no thespian likeness that I could find, but I am open to suggestions.

Happy Birthdays Misters President!!!!


  1. Tracey, when all else fails Stephen Fry !.

  2. I am really loving these happy birthday posts! I learn something with each one.

  3. This is absolutely hilarious! There is a British actor who looks like George Washington. He was in Chariots of Fire - sort of a nice looking jowly sort of guy, like George. But I can't seem to remember his name.

  4. What rosy cheeks you have, George!
    And Ronald too. :)
