On This Day…

“Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!”

Depending on whom you ask, President Reagan can inspire courage and decisiveness, or he can inspire vitriolic frustration.  A couple weeks ago, my bus driver spent most of the trip home lamenting the years of the Reagan administration.  And it is so easy to remember Iran-Contra, point fingers and enjoy a healthy dose of American guilt.  It makes it easier to sit back and, well, do nothing. 

Blame always conceals inaction – it’s won elections for years.   Bold leadership, like what we saw that day, can change the world.

  1. “Blame always conceals inaction – it’s won elections for years.”

    What a perfect epitaph for the Democratic Congress voted in this past November! Not only can they not pass the half-important bills, such as the latest attempt to force illegal immigration down our throats, but they can’t even manage to pull off so-called symbolic acts like a vote of no confidence in the attorney general.

    And they’re calling BUSH a lame-duck?
