Happy President's Day! 
A real leader. Not the clown we have now.
"Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!” ~ Ronald Reagan (1911 - 2004)
And don't forget his chief helper on this project: Edward Teller.
Reagan, Washington, and Lincoln were the greatest presidents this country has ever had period.
Reagan defeated Communism. Obama wants it back.
In the present days we need American president strong enough like Reagan to say: Mr Putin, Don't rise this wall !!"
If only we had a president today who could look down south and say the same thing.
Eh. Regan would not be opening the boarder the most violent and crime ridden nation in the world.
I'm Hispanic in a border town...and no thanks.
How about some Latin American president going to Texas to tell mr Obama or some future Republican/Democrat president to tear down that Mexico-United States barrier (Texas Wall)?
+Heikki Ekman The berlin wall is nothing of the same. People can come in from mexico with no problems. But what you dont understand is that it has to be done legally. Do the paperwork and become a citizen....How would you like it if someone came into your house and decided they wanted it as their house too... How are you gonna feel when you lose your job for someone who will work for half of your pay. Taking the border away will also make a drug epidemic in the southern united states. There will be no one to stop all those drugs from coming in. There will be no one to stop all the gang members and illegal weapons from coming in either. Why would the united states make a decision that only hurts their people ?

Is it a third party we need, or is it a new and revitalized second party, raising a banner of no pale pastels, but bold colors which make it unmistakably clear where we stand on all of the issues troubling the people?” . Ronald Reagan Once Said   Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream.

We will preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we will sentence them to take the first step into a thousand years of darkness.

(Reagan to Jimmy Carter in a debate . Ronald Reagan Once Said One legislator accused me of having a nineteenth-century attitude on law and order. That is a totally false charge. I have an eighteenth-century attitude. That is when the Founding Fathers made it clear that the safety of law-abiding citizens should be one of the government's primary concerns. . Ronald Reagan Once Said   I want you to know also I will not make age an issue of this campaign.

Ronald Reagan Once Said  The American dream is not that every man must be level with every other man.

Ronald Reagan Once Said   The men of Normandy had faith that what they were doing was right, faith that they fought for all humanity, faith that a just God would grant them mercy on this beachhead or the next. It was the deep knowledge -- and pray to God we have not lost it -- that there is a profound moral difference between the use of force for liberation and the use of force for conquest . Ronald Reagan Once Said   "I've spoken of the shining city all my political life, but I don't know if I ever quite communicated what I saw when I said it. But in my mind it was a tall proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, wind-swept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace, a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity, and if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it and see it still. And how stands the city on this winter night? More prosperous, more secure, and happier than it was eight years ago. But more than than that; after 200 years, two centuries, she still stands strong and true on the granite ridge, and her glow has held steady no matter what storm. And she's still a beacon, still a magnet for all who must have freedom, for all the pilgrims from all the lost places who are hurtling through the darkness, toward home 
He was quite the talker.
No Obama must be stopped! Wish our President had balls like Putin!Putin just sees a weak  black idiot! 
+kevin b You leftwing liberal faggot!
as leon panetta said, obama is seeking to willfully and purposely weaken and destroy America. that is evident to anyone with working neurons.
Amazing how leftist flip out about Reagan. I guess it is because they have nothing that compares. Clinton, Carter, and now Obama. A group of the most lying, clueless, miserable men to ever be elected to political office. Now carry on with your mindless marxist rants against freedom and strength and keep praying at the altar of liberalism.
It was a communist that killed JFK. FACT. 
Ronald Reagan to the conservatives is like the statute of Rocky that once stood in front of Philadelphia's Spectrum Arena, the fake champion, both were straight out of Hollywood  
+18kMPH I smell a bumbed out Soviet
+KeepingRapier11 Stop sniffing, your sense of smell has been shot to hell
But Bush jr. was the worst and most amazing jerk president ever..he could never finish a sentence correctly...Reagan could speak well..thats all i will give him.
I just saw a local broadcast commemorating the fall of the wall 25 years ago, no mention of Reagan.  But anyone alive in 1989 new the man responsible for freeing East Germany.
remember it's all rhetoric..propaganda to make you feel good about being an american while the rest of the world goes down in flames. 
Hey Millenials, one day the world will be yours.  Please understand that Reagan didn't hate Russians.  He hated communism and the oppression that comes with it.  If your generation doesn't do something, you will also live in a socialist country where your ideas are monitored by your government. The 1980's were incredible because we were totally free to do everything we wanted.  Music, sports, movies, etc.  And if you didn't like what someone said...TOUGH!  You got over it and moved on with your life. Millenials, please take your future into your own hands.  You are not a bully just because you have an opinion that differs from someone else!!!!
The one who really hated the Russians was Nixon.
Hats off to Gorbachev as well.
Mr Spiderman, tear down this thread.
Mr Netanyahu, tear down this wall.
Reagan smash Reagan smash Reagan sleepy
Reagan... doesn't know where this is going.  Reagan needs ride home.
Don't believe the hype on putin and russia. cnn and nbc use fear mongering tactics, and allegiances with other news outlets to portray him and his country in the evilest light!  Btw.. Ronald Reagan was the greatest president of the us! 
+Susan Kazenas I apologise for offending you, and thank you for taking my comment seriously and taking the time to explain your point of view. The CIA conducts paramilitary operations, has admitted that it started revolutions to overthrow governments and incorporated German Nazis under Operation Paperclip. What do you think about that? I can see why the Eastern bloc would feel threatened considering their independence is new, and the shady annexation of Crimea didn't help (the revolution in Kiev was also shady, with the Nuland phone call, Poroshenko's history of working for the US government, and Nazis with chains, axes, clubs and rifles surrounding Parliament), but where else do you think Putin is going to expand? NATO is right at the Russian border. There are a a couple of interesting parallels to WW2, but this isn't 1939, Putin is no Hitler, and Obama is no FDR. Putin is not going to start nuclear WW3 by attacking NATO, and he's not going to invade his allies. There isn't even any tangible evidence to support what Poroshenko is saying Putin is doing to Ukraine. It's all just "he said, she said" and people eat it up, because they love to be offended and scared.
Reagan only liked himself.. We all lost economically except the 1% Elitists!
obama wish he could accomplish what reagan has
its been 5 years and obama has done nothing but screw around and lie to us. 
Lets see Obama grow some balls like this.
How would they understand him
Ronald Reagan was part of the Illuminati and yet you people believe hes so great. He was just another puppet trying to further the New World Order. Wake up people. 
+Brenton Johnson See, that's a nice fella right there.
If Obama makes a speech about the Great Firewall of China, and quotes this speech, I will have in him as a leader.
+Josh Gaus What do you call the New Deal? 
+Zeit Geist But if the new deal was passed today, wouldn't it be called communist, even if it was just a bit socialist?

Happy President's Day! 
Reagan was a great president. 
+kevin b I'll leave that for your own interpretation my friend. :)
I love you Ronald Reagan, you were a great man!
Gorbachev was traitor he should be shot
Mr. Gorbaciov, Tear Down This Wall! - Words that changed a whole World... Today - 25 years from Germany Reunification...
Caste India must tear down the  Ebola caste walls in India!
The religion that keeps the caste system alive has to be re-educated in India. suffering and hate will prevail if they cannot come to terms in the freakin 21'st century. Sadly the answer lies outside of Indias intolerance to christianity  that evokes equalness.

#pernondimenticare ... #Berlino la caduta del muro ... #RonaldReagan <tear dows this wall>
Mr. putin , tear down this wall.
and now Mr. Pork-o shenko is bulding a wall in East Ukraine...
God bless the Liberator Reagan!
I remember with much pleasure and emotion those days of November 1980. We were still in Bucharest, Romania, me, my wife and our daughter, anxiously waiting to emigrate to California and I remember that I was "disappointed" that Carter lost to Reagan because I was an ignorant in those times. But how happy was I later with Reagan!  God Bless him!  
A remarkable speach of Ronald Reagan near the Berlin Wall. And... in 1989 it was Günter Schabowski who actually did tear down this wall... He gave the famous press conference where the wall did fall "sofort, unverzüglich"!
He was a acteur what else you can expect

This was a remarkably good time in history that brings joy to the people who were most affected!
Mr. Putin, I'll have more flexibility after my reelection.
Obama prefers to tear down his red lines.
Yeah, he also likes to tear down the wall between the US and Mexico so illegals can come in
Gorbachev told ray gun he was going to take down the wall, open the boarder. So ray gun takes credit. Same as the U.S. takings credit for beating the Germans. After USSR did most of the hard fighting.
+Aleks Ilievski I know my history very well. Especially WWII history, and it gets old hearing how the United States didn't do anything. Anyone who believes that is an idiot. Without our industrial might, shipping supplies too Russia, and without us helping to split German forces, causing them to fight 2 fronts, it could have been a different outcome. The United States was fighting 2 wars, but for some reason people say we didnt do shit. It gets old, instead of acknowledging that it was a collective effort, people say one country did it all, and it's a bunch of horse shit.
I never said that the United States didn't do crap in World War II i thank both the USSR and the US but the Soviet Union did most of the work fighting against Hitler they lost over 20 million people

Best president in history.  I'm embarrassed to be apart of this current era 2014.
Reagan....please come back!!!  We need you now more than ever.  
The greatest President of the last 150 years - Ronald Reagan. A poll this week -- Reagan greatest American President of the last 50 years -- Obama -- the worst. How true!!
Too bad the wall didn't come down on this treasonous piece of shits head. 
This man freed so many people with this speech...God Bless
Millions of people are free today in Eastern Europe because of Ronald Reagan, Lech Walesa, Margaret Thatcher, and Pope John Paul II.
+Alex T. Even with the death of the Soviet Union you are still touting their propaganda line. Pretty hilarious. The west gives its least fortunate citizens numerous assistance programs from food to health care, to education. Such horrible slavery compared to getting shot for refusing your masters in the Soviet Union.
+SuperMarioandSonic Marco Yeah Yea, and you are touting US propaganda line bla bla. See how easy that is? Seriously, eat shit and die.
Yay, youtube comments fight. Let's watch:)
We need Reagan back, Obama is an embarresment who can't run his own country
He is not trying to run the county, he is trying to ruin it.
+Sho Jarvis Hobama care is a joke. Too bad you fall for it.
God Rest your soul Ronald were a great President
one of the best presidents ever.
comes to watch reagan speech sees pointless political arguments
Mr. President Putin tear down this wall of your lies
What do I see on the video? Methood of fight in competitive world.

What's happening in Russia now is very dangerous. Putin must be stopped.
+Helvetica Neue Unlike the Ukraine, South Korea accepts the U.S.'s assistance. Russia was most definitely not granted access to the Ukraine.
Putin has the biggest cult of personality since Mao, and a population gripped by increasingly fanatical nationalism like Nazi Germany even though Putin himself claims to be anti-fascist.

I'll take JFK's speech at the Berlin Wall.
At All the joy together with the Americans and British, but "Direktve JCS 1067" and bombing of Dresden is not forgotten.
Tore down that wall, like the Kool-aid Man, oh yeah!
به این میگن قدرت ، حال کردم ، نمیدونم مردم چرا اینقدر بیحال بودن ، شاید این حرف ها رو جدی نمی گرفتن
Let us not forget the the tearing down of the Berlin wall and the speech of President Ronald Reagan!   Think!!!
Mr. Grobatschow teer down this wall - David Hasselhoff
I still get chills when he delivers that line. Along with Ike, the best president since Lincoln.
Germans r american ball lickers
unfortunately it's true :(
we are not ball lick im from American
No one under 48 years old has ever cast a vote for this man. You can lie to your fellow republicans about ronald reagen mainly because most people in your party have no personal memory of his time in office ...
+Erik Guerrero The Berlin wall and the wall between Mexico and the US have an opposite purpose. The Berlin Wall was designed to prevent people from leaving Communist East Germany while the wall between the U.S and Mexico was designed people from illegally immigrating into the U.S
It is called history and you should study it

While the US did force them into a 'spending war,' the Soviet Union ultimately fell for two reasons; massive debt and a bad economy. Sound familiar to any country in the world today???
God cannot bless a Capitalist leader, wouldn't have sense. God cannot bless the nation of the USA because is a materialistic country, centered in everything that is not correct according to the thoughts of God.
