He wasn't a great communicator, he communicated great things. Reagan's agenda was the people's agenda. He lead the country with optimism and he was right. A date with destiny. Reagan said the 9 most dangerous words in the English language are, "I'm from the government and I want to help you!" lol Wish I had a copy of the speech. It was really excellent. He was an amazing man. Obama has selected a good man to emulate. I hope he was watching.
