Ron Reagan Doesn't Like Palin Honoring Dad

Sarah Palin spoke at the Reagan Library last night to celebrate the 100th anniversary of President Reagan's birth.

America is on a "road to ruin" because of misguided policies in Washington and needs to get back in step with the values of Ronald Reagan, Sarah Palin said at an event honoring the former president's legacy.

Ron Reagan, the liberal son of the president, says he doesn't see any similarities between Palin and his father.

But his son, Ron Reagan, tells The Associated Press he doesn't see anything in common between his dad and the 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate, who was invited to speak by the event's sponsor, the conservative Young America's Foundation.

"Sarah Palin is a soap opera, basically. She's doing mostly what she does to make money and keep her name in the news," Reagan says.

"She is not a serious candidate for president and never has been," said Reagan, a political independent whose politics lean left.
