Briefing not the way to start the day—what with news of the games Cong. is playing with regard to the debt ceiling, deficit & tax reform. And yes that goes for Repubs. as well as Dems.
Over to the East Room to meet about 275 top Repubs. from all over the nation. They are the team that took our case to the people in the 1984 election.
Then a briefing for interview with 4 wire services reporters. I think it went well. Half the time was spent on our Soviet defectors turn around (Turchenko). An enjoyable lunch in the St. Dining Room with a powerhouse group—Repub. & Dem.—who are fundraising for the Reagan Library.
A taping session—one was for the Cancer Society that is giving me an award.
Then George S. & Bud came upstairs with Don R. & George B. to report on their Gorbachev meeting. It seems Mr. G. is filled with a lot of false info about the U.S. & believes it all. For example Americans hate the Russians because our arms manufacturers stir them up with propaganda so they can keep selling us weapons.
Nancy & Maureen arrived.
