Reagan's Christmas Address To The Nation, 1981
One of President Reagan's best speeches, given to the nation in 1981.
For those of us who've forgotten, this is how a real leader speaks and acts.Listen closely.
Note especially his concrete support for the freedom of the Polish people as opposed to a certain other more recent occupant of the White House's lack of support for the same thing in Iran.
And notice also how the entire speech is full of phrases like: "we" and "us" and "Americans".. and then take any speech of Obama's and count all of the "I's" and "me's".
But I have no doubt better days are coming.
