Porch Quote 

W makes even R.R. look good
"I do not believe, therefore, that the local commanders on the ground, men who have already suffered quite enough, should be punished for not fully comprehending the nature of today's terrorist threat. If there is to be blame, it properly rests here in this office and with this president. And I accept responsibility for the bad as well as the good."
--Ronald Reagan on Dec. 27, 1983, in a question-and-answer session with reporters after 269 people, mostly Marines, were killed when terrorists blew up their barracks in Beirut.
