It boggles my mind that the left was able to paint Reagan as a simpleton in some circles., This is a man who had incredible depth of understanding that went way back in his early years. It proves the point that they cannot win in an arguement of ideas-only by destroying your opponent personally can they debate. They are still doing it in todays campaign. I havent heard a Kerry idea yet, only that Bush is a bad guy...history does repeat itself.
Read the entire speech when you have a few minutes.

Not only paint him as a simpleton but as a superficial</i? simpleton. Herein we see why he was elected by such wide margins.
EXCELLENT ! You are correct .... Read the ENTIRE speech .

("There's a pony in here somewhere")
On May 23, 1775, Patrick Henry stood before the House of Burgess and urged them to join in the battle for freedom:
Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear or peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!

It boggles my mind that the left was able to paint Reagan as a simpleton in some circles.,
Why? They didn't have to read the speech, Walter Cronkite did it for them.

Principles and resolve, the courage to stand up.
Ronald Reagan's passing, does not take that away; instead, he reminds us of what is worthy, how to lead.
