These are the same doctors that attended to him after the attempt on his life. After the diagnosis of prostate cancer.

Besides, speeches well after his supposed "mental incapacity" clearly shows although be was tired he still was fully capable of making executive decisions.

You can read those on the Miller Center website. Reagan was officially diagnosed with that terrible disease in 1994 with signs showing in 1993. How many Alzheimer's patients do you know that live for another 10 years after being diagnosed much less nearly 20?

Anyways, the liberal arm chair doctors on CD don't get to make their baseless claims without showing how they were there with the president every step of the way without showing proof that they are doctors and that they were close enough to him to have first hand experience. For god's sake he negotiated with a much younger Gorbachev for actual arms reductions while he was supposedly "senile" and won without giving a single concession in doing so. If that is senile what does that say about the numerous presidents before him and, even worse, what does that say about our current leader in the White House who can't even manage to float from one crisis to the next without even a remotely clear objective with all his meddling in the ME

Besides, the "family" who made this baseless claim "junior" happened upon these revelations just as he was promoting a book. Need I remind you junior failed at everything he did including dressing up in tights to dance for a none existent audience.
Yeah, we took my mom to some quack! Sorry, no buying!

Actually, many Alzheimer's patients live for years after diagnosis.
Formula Predicts Alzheimer's Longevity
"We typically think of Alzheimer's disease as being rapidly progressing, telling new patients they may have six to eight years, but that really, it is in God's hands," he says.

When Jicha and colleagues scrutinized the records of nearly 1,300 men and women who had been diagnosed with Alzheimer's at their institution, they found patients lived anywhere from one to 26 years from when they first started losing their memory.

Well in this case instead of god leaving Reagan alone in a ditch somewhere God had Reagan win 1984 elections with 525 electoral votes and among that 25% of democrats voted for him to boot. God could have the pooped all over the president having had colon surgery, prostate surgery and having had Reagan watch Nancy have a breast removed. God could have just completely laughed him off the earth and had just drop dead in a grave but be didn't do that. God had him leave, after having gone through Iran-Contra with the highest approval rating of any president since FDR.

Now who wants to go and say something stupid like Reagan was fee else minded in his final term of his presidency?

My handle has nothing to do with that cartoon, guess that shows you assume more than you should.
