Jerry Parr, right


Jerry S. Parr (September 16, 1930 – October 9, 2015) was an American Secret Service Agent. He was one of the agents protecting President Reagan on the day of his assassination attempt on March 30, 1981 and is widely credited with helping to save the President's life.[1][2]







Tim McCarthy, right




Timothy J. McCarthy (born June 20, 1949) is the current police chief of Orland Park, Illinois, and a former member of the United States Secret Service.[1] During the 1981 Reagan assassination attempt, he turned into the line of fire, shielding Ronald Reagan from one of John Hinckley, Jr.'s .22 caliber bullets.[2][3][dead link] Surgeons at George Washington University Hospital successfully removed the round from McCarthy's abdomen, and he fully recovered. McCarthy is one of only four Secret Service agents to have taken a bullet for the President.[citation needed] He received the NCAA Award of Valor in 1982[4] in recognition of his bravery.




Sounds like they just tased him.

They say Bush I basically took over after the hit.  Reagan emerged from the hospital stay a forgetful, mumbling rendition of his former self.  What did they shoot him with?

Bush Jr. started his term relatively sharp. Ended up a bumbling fool as well.
Could be from too much blow or something...

Unlike Nixon and Carter, Reagan was putty.  All putty ever since.
