28 Days of Ronald Reagan – Day 12

 

General Secretary Gorbachev, if you seek peace, if you seek prosperity for the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe, if you seek liberalization: Come here to this gate.

Mr. Gorbachev, open this gate.

Mr. Gorbachev — Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!
Remarks at the Brandenburg Gate, Berlin Germany, June 12, 1987

Ronald Wilson Reagan
February 6, 1911 – June 5, 2004
40th President of the United States

February 6, 2011 marks the Centennial of Ronald Reagan’s birth.  Reagan was unquestionably the greatest President of my lifetime, and in my opinion, the greatest President of the 20th Century.  For the month of February, 2011, we present “28 Days of Ronald Reagan” featuring a daily tribute.  We’ll include his wit, and his wisdom and some of our favorite stories.

Quote of the Day

Oprah will have to pardon the snickers as she now asks for patience with a “learning curve” for somebody she once referred to as “the one.” If you’re going to sell somebody as capable of walking on water, don’t demand more respect from the people are simply wondering why that same person suddenly needs swimming lessons.
