President Ronald Reagan Sound Bites from 1980 Resonate Across the Fruited Plain

President Ronald Reagan - Liberty State Park


RUSH: I want to revisit one more time, Ronaldus Magnus and his reigniting his campaign against Jimmy Carter in 1980 at the Statue of Liberty on September 1st, and this is important. (I'm gonna leave Jon Huntsman out of this time; it's not the point.) The whole Republican Party needs to wake up and understand what's at stake here and how to go about it. We have enough destruction taking place here. To sit here and simply say, "To be nice about this, under the guise of civility, isn't going to get the job done." When you got somebody that's causing great problems, this is how you campaign against them...

REAGAN: The Carter record is a litany of despair, of broken promises, of sacred trusts abandoned and forgotten. His answer to all this misery? He tries to tell us that we're only in a recession, not a depression, as if definitions -- words -- relieve our suffering. Let it show on the record that when the American people cried out for economic help, Jimmy Carter took refuge behind a dictionary. Well, if it's a definition he wants, I'll give him one: A recession is when your neighbor loses his job. A depression is when you lose yours. And recovery is when Jimmy Carter loses his!

SUPPORTERS: (cheers and applause)

RUSH: And finally, sound bite 28. There's this...

REAGAN: I'm looking forward to meeting Mr. Carter in debate, confronting him with the whole sorry record of his administration -- the record he prefers not to mention. If he ever finally agrees to the kind of first debate the American people want, which I'm beginning to doubt, he'll answer to them and to me.

SUPPORTERS: (applause)

REAGAN: This country needs a new administration with a renewed dedication to the dream of America, an administration that will give that dream new life and make America great again.

RUSH: That's how you do it.


Wild Thing's comment.......

These videos are from the Rush LImbaugh website and are so good I wanted to share them with you.

Rush shared them on his show the other day when he was discussing Jon Huntsman kissing up to Obama and anyone else running as a candidate and the GOP that does not get it!

And Huntsman seems to think hes the second coming of Ronald Reagan, not even close. Instead of defining the problem huntsman praised obama for his job, then why in the hell is huntsman running. If Jon Huntsman is such a great Republican, why did he and his family give $20,000 dollars to Harry Reids Campaing.

Huntsman's as phony as an 8 dollar bill.
