Happy Birthday, Ronald Reagan!

Video via Young America’s Foundation, and here I am at the Reagan Ranch in June 2007, with that exact same fence in the background.

I was in Santa Barbara for the 20th anniversary of the “Tear Down This Wall” speech, and got an A1 exclusive interview with Peter Robinson, who wrote that speech. The story was Drudge-linked.

(That spiteful twerp Birnbaum has removed my byline from the story in the TWT online archive, although anyone with Nexis can discover who wrote it. This is not personal, Jeff — it’s professional, since you also removed my byline from Reagan obituary. Before you set out to deprive a man of credit for his work, you ought to take an estimate of the man whose reputation you’ve chosen to attack.)

Excuse the digression into contemplation of vengeance. On a more appropriate note of Reaganesque optimism, JR at Conservatives4Palin says, “What’s that Mr. President? You want us to go out there in 2012 and “win just one more for the Gipper?” . . . You betcha!”

UPDATE: Philip Klein recalls when Robert Kennedy debated Reagan in 1967 — and got his butt kicked.

The premiere of the new Reagan documentary Rendezvous With Destiny is tonight at the Kennedy Center. It’s going to be SRO. They actually had to rescind invitations because they got too many RSVPs.
