Reagan's Health "Rapidly Deteriorating"

Rumors about the deteriorating health of former president Ronald Reagan started swirling around last week. They’ve finally been picked up by the mainstream press.

CNN is reporting:

The 93-year-old former president had been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease about a decade ago and began a retreat from public view.

According to sources familiar with the situation, the White House has been told Reagan’s death could happen in “weeks or months.”

The sources said they were told: “Don’t be surprised if….the time is getting close.” Wizbang will have much more on the Reagan’s legacy in the coming weeks.

Update: Reagan’s office in Los Angeles denies the rumors.
