I was searching for something to write, today. Been trying to do that a little more. I came across a clip of Peggy Noonan giving Andrea Mitchell what-for on a Sunday morning panel show. 1. It was awesome to see someone shut Andrea Mitchell up, and 2. It gave me the chance to learn more about Ronald Reagan.
As I stated in my Sunday song, I was a teenager during his two terms. While I knew what was going on in the world and had a good grasp of our government, I really didn’t know much about Reagan’s political history, other than switching parties and his time as California’s governor. I had never had the opportunity to hear any of his earlier speeches, so I was glad to find the one I think Noonan was referencing.
In Peggy Noonan’s verbal slap, she mentions a speech in 1964 wherein Reagan states his philosophy about government at that time. What he said then is true today, without a doubt. So, here are two clips: one is Peggy Noonan standing up against Mitchell, and the other is an excerpt from Reagan’s 1964 speech. If you would like to watch the entire speech, CLICK HERE.
