I think it's going to be interesting if he is on his game. I think it's going to go. You know, people are gonna wonder, eh? I'm wondering whether or not Joe Biden is up for this job, whether he's up for the debate. He's been hiding for six months in his basement, so I'm interested in his mental acuity. I'm interested in the guy's gas machine, so we're going to see firsthand tonight. Whether he could go 90 minutes without a Gaff. If you can go 90 minutes standing on a stage no teleprompter.

Ah, on one hand, and on the other hand, you have the issues which are all on Donald Trump's side, because if we make this if it's the president Make this issue makes his campaign and the debate site and is able to talk about these issues. Whether it's higher taxes versus lower taxes, more job killing regulations versus fewer regulations, whether it's open borders and free health care for illegal immigrants. Whether it's Ah, anarchy in the streets and be funding the police, or is it about lower taxes and cutting regulation and creating the vibrant economy that we had? Before the Chinese buyers. What, Or is it about border security isn't about supporting, you know, are our men and women in blue and making sure that the president continues to have their back? So this is This is what Ronald Reagan called bold colors, not pale pastels. Let's create a stark difference between the two candidates, and that's what President Trump is going to do tonight, and I think it's gonna shine. I think he'll shine. He's not going to be put off by anything. Joe Biden give me a break. You know Donald Trump, you know, going to be very forward leaning, and he's going to be ready for anything that that Joe Biden throws at

The announcement came in a formal ceremony today at the Rose calm. Cardinal Trump is said to have the greatest impact on the Supreme Court since Ronald Reagan, who also made three appointments, and Democrats worry. The addition of Amy Cockney Barrett to the bench would drag American jurisprudence inextricably to the right, putting abortion rights and civil rights at risk.

"Be. I can be greater sooner or later. I'm greater. Yes, I Yes, I Here we go. It's all tonight with President Trump and Joe Biden taking on One another in the presidential debate, the first of three Alex Castellanos is joining US political analyst with the ABC News and Alex. We just got word now that Joe Biden has been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize, joining President Donald Trump and Russians President Vladimir Putin in names foot forward So you can I think you and I are next. We're being nominated later today. Apparently now nominating people for the Nobel Prize is become part of the standard political campaign. It's like writing a book, You've got to write a book and get nominated for the Nobel Breeze Prize. Yeah, indeed. So with that, Let's talk a little bit about. We kind of know the way President Trump's going, Tio act and or react, But what does he need to do to sway? Maybe some voters And what is Joe Biden need to do tonight? Toe can well. Well, what President Trump needs to do is not be angry, Chaotic, dangerous. Donald Trump. He needs to be that Donald Trump has been over the past few weeks on the stump of his rallies, friendly, laughing, having a good time. Being serious about things, but not being scared. Remember when Ronald Reagan was running for president, the Democrats said, This guy's gonna start a war. He's crazy. And they saw Reagan who was a nice, avuncular guy, and then they want so Trump needs to do that. What Biden needs to do is have a clear 1st 15 minutes and, if possible, have one or two moments where he comes back at Trump with a snappy line. Why? Because the post debate period is more important even than the debate itself. The mainstream news media's gonna play That little Biden light if he gives it to him for the next week or two, and Americans will say You know what he's pretty clear he could do the job. That's great. All Biden has to do is be clear. Have one good moment and not show up in his World War one uniform. Well with that, when you know looks both of age age gap from most Americans. From that standpoint, when you look at this, you just mentioned the 1st 15 minutes with Biden. What is the most important part? Is it getting off to a good start? Because most you were going to last a couple of hours on this thing. No, no, but very few people are going to last you. It's just a first impression that couch people will make our experience watching these debates and prepping candidates for debates for years. Is that the 1st 15 minutes of the first debate, not two and three. Are the ones that matter, especially if you're making a character judgment. Can these guys handle the job? Are they up to it? Are they good people? And so that's what's really important. After that, people go get a snack. I think you're right if they watch it at all, and then that's been a number. We've seen the ratings. It seems like a year in and year out over the last three or four decades, you know, go around. I think you'll see a lot of viewers tonight. Oh, yeah, This is great. This is Super Bowl stuff. How does Biden keep And if it's possible President Trump in check of second, the air out of the room, and I don't mean that critically. I mean, that's what he did with the Republicans that you know, they just never had come back. They had never been in a situation like this. We go back to those debates, and certainly certainly him. Hillary Clinton had no answer forward either. Poking fun, and, uh, that's how you let the air out of a bully. You smile at him and you say, like Ronald Reagan. There he goes again. Ah, you say Ah, Gee, Donald, I thought you'd bring your tax accountants with you tonight. Do you poke fun at him? That's what a bully can't stand. What? Ah, That would be interesting if he wasn't worried about a trip to trump Biden likely because this is what happens to him after you know, 15 or 20 minutes has really you know where he doesn't articulate things very well. Can he overcome that tonight? Um, it's tough. You know it, especially toward the tail end of the debate. He gets tired. He has a confusing moment. It won't be his best night. But you know what that's built into his stock price. We already know Biden. Is lost some of the speed on his fastball and voters are okay with that voters. A lot of Biden supporters have said, You know what, rather than the energy and chaos of Trump Maybe job sleepy. Joe won't do that much as president. That's all right with me. Finally, Ah, referring to President Trump because two big issues I mean one of them, Of course, the Supreme Court. Justice that he's nominated, and, secondly, his tax situation. Does that have any impact on the few that are probably undecided in this? Well. The Supreme Court does have an impact, because ah For Trump supporters. He's already given them everything they've ever wanted, who sits in the stands after the football game is over. Trump has already won the Supreme Court battle, so it actually hurts him. He's completed that job. Why do we need him on the taxes situation? It's gonna hurt a little bit with those swing voters, especially because Trump needs to be running against Joe Biden. Trump doesn't need to be running against Donald Trump and explaining why he Didn't pay taxes. All right. We'll see what happens. I'm sure Chris will also do a fantastic job is a very good journalist.

Then, now the real clear politics average of polls showing Joe Biden with a 10 point lead. A recent one by ABC News Washington Post had Biden up by 16 so That may be, ah little bit of an outlier we don't know. But the president believes that if he spends enough time in Minnesota, he will be able to flip the state that would make him the first Republican to win it Since 1972 and Richard Nixon.

He did the third presidential debate. Threadbare talked to Chris Wallace, his colleague there at Fox News Channel four years ago. Talking to him, then about preparing for his first debate gives you a little insight into what Chris Wallace may be thinking and doing ahead of tonight, one of the things that we've done and I don't think any of the other networks did is they basically said you got a good team at Fox News Sunday. You guys prepare for the debate. So I've got my crack researcher Laury Martin. I've got my executive producer, just Loker. It's just the three of us against the world here.

The Constitution. If you will in action because this is helping millions of people decide who we're going to elect is the next president. But a this moment you know what this moment means. For you. It means a lot. It means I'm not personally. It's kind of a statement of where you are in this business. It also means a lot to me because quite frankly. It means something for Fox on the first Fox moderator to do a general election debate, and I'm very proud for the news organization. I think it's a recognition of the fact that we do serious journalism. Some critics say no, but the fact is you and I know we D'oh On Here's the Commission on presidential debates recognizing that look, there's a lot of pressure. There's a lot of stress. We've seen the previous moderators.

In a meeting and the vice president all adopt in one on one conversations with members of this group, and then they narrowed that list down to 11. Basically, finalists who were then subjected to a much more invasive and deeper betting for each of those 11 finalists. There was individually interview that was conducted In the last nine days by the vice president is a team of between 12 and 15 attorneys were assigned to each person to that, basically, everything they've done in their life. You know all public records on public speeches, all controversies. Financial matters. You name it. Everything you've done. You are asked to disclose to the vetting committee to discuss to explain your spouse's records also were subjected to scrutiny and in that process ended earlier this week when The former vice president. When with Campbell Harris and up to the end, I think it was some suspense is ironic, and that this was enormously laborious process and he ended up with a lot of people thought we were gonna end up from the beginning and it didn't change my common. Harris is probably the front runner of the front runner for the job when this all started and ended up with a job. Exactly, And there's all these little bumps along the way, you know, like with the debate where she nailed him on some race issues, and you know, he really did have to hold the heart not holding any lingering grudges, you know, and and in the end, he could make the right choice for him, But I want to go back to something you said, beginning where all the candidates were given the questions and their initial interviews. What do you think Donald Trump's nickname for you would be, and that's Actually such an important question right there, because that's what the president does. He markets you in a specific way in a negative way so that people won't trust you are what not so having that kind of foresight into how the president would attack you is so important. And for Kamala Harris She's kind of tough person a pigeonhole. She's a black woman. She's also Indian American woman. She's the daughter of immigrants. There's a lot of stuff in her background. That's gonna be tough. Just a pinpoint on her, So I'm sure that also fared into why she was chosen. I think I think there's a couple parts of that question. One is kind work out how the president attack each of these people, but the other part of how they will respond to the attack. I think one of the things with the interviewers were trying to get from that question is How prepared and how self aware. Are these candidates for what they're about to go through? If they are picked for this job, people involved in processing comma Harris would just come through the primary. She's one of the only Candidates here would actually gone through the whole primary process, which is itself a very grueling job interview, performed very well in the initial meeting was very confidence knew exactly what she was about to get understanding of policy and was compelling for the people who are talking with her, so I think it was something she passes by there from the start of this process, has said he didn't hold grudges. From the primary process, And as you said comma, Harris went after him effectively and very frontally in one of those early debates, and when she questioned his relationship with segregation of Sanders and says she's been personally offended by the fact that he had opposed Forced busing programs by the federal government. But their relationship actually did not begin there. She had been very close with Beau Biden, who remains Joe Biden sort of emotional load star here, his son who died of cancer two years ago, They had both been attorneys general together at the same time had been friends had worked together on big cases, and they knew each other there. There are also times sort of behind the scenes on the campaign trail. Including one moment in October, where Biden and Heresies entourage found themselves in the same private airport hangar area, and Joe Biden her way with a certain walk away and spend some time with each other. So I think they felt They had a pretty good relationship with each other. That had transcended that, and we see that in this choice goes bad feeling cleaner and the issue of race because he initially said a long time. Well, yeah, I'm gonna pick a woman. I commit to that. But then, increasingly, as the process started going, it seemed like the push for him to put a woman of color started increasing and there was a lot of different women of different ethnicities on his short list. But this kind of also was the thing that was looming throughout the process. Yeah, I think it's built throughout the process. Time This process began the George Floyd and that has not happened in Minneapolis. There weren't these protests around the country and over the course of the summer, more and more groups came out more and more public letters written Jo by themselves, was taking private meetings with black officials consulting allies of his were telling him. It's really important for you to pick a black woman here. And you know, While the campaign maintains that that was not the reason Harris was picked its structure, the environment in which the decision was made, and I think, arguably if he had gone with a white woman like Elizabeth Warren, the Massachusetts senator or Michigan, gonna graduate. There would have been a backlash in the base of the party that I wouldn't have to deal with Michael Scherer, national political reporter at The Washington Post. Thank you very much for joining
'Boys State' Helps Teens Learn How Politics Work — Perhaps A Little Too Well
"This is fresh air, want a glimpse into a potential future candidate for elected office? Look no further than the new documentary called Boy State. It's about an annual event in my government for high school students sponsored by the American Legion. By the way, Bill Clinton and Cory Booker went through the program. Boy state begins streaming Friday on Apple, Plus our film critic Justin Chang has THISS review. Since they were founded in the 19 thirties by the American Legion, the boys, state and Girls state programs have been giving high schoolers a practical education in how government works. Students in every state are chosen to take part in a weeklong summer experiment in which they must form their own representative democracy. As we learned from the opening credits of the terrific new documentary Boys State. No Clinton, Dick Cheney, Rush Limbaugh and Cory Booker are just a few of the program's famous alone's A film, directed by Amanda McBain and Jesse Moss, focuses on the Texas boy state event that took place in June 2018. We see the roughly 1200 participants arriving in Austin. Where they are randomly divided into two political parties, The federalists and the Nationalists. Those names carry no agenda. It's up to both parties to hammer out a platform, choose their leaders and then run against each other in a week long election campaign. McBain and Moss throw us into this mark government exercise without much preamble or explanation of the rules of the game. My politics itself. The action can be a little confusing.

Most ambitious of the bunch is been the Federalists Party chair who's willing to do anything to win votes, including smearing the Nationalists on Social media. Dennis, politically conservative.

He has a seasoned politicians command of rhetoric and can deftly out argue any opponent. It is also capable of calling for party unity, as he does in an early speech. My grandmother told me a few things you have to have faith, hope and a bit of a pissed off attitude. I want to be civil and represent a whole working body. And we're gonna take the example of a plane body. It has two wings left one, right one. We're not gonna pick one. We're going to stay in the middle, because we're not intolerable party where one that is palatable to all. And so as long as we're able to keep this plane of foot with a healthy right wing in a healthy left wing, we have the ability and the capability to pummel any fairless into the ground because we're the only party that's where voting for because it's this party that's going to represent every individual. If Rene has the sharpest mind and tongue and boy state, its heart and soul belonged to Steven A fellow nationalist party member. Stephen becomes an underdog in the race for governor, the highest elected office. Like Rene Steven stands out. He's the son of a Mexican immigrant, and he counts Bernie Sanders among his political heroes, his humility on the campaign trail and his stirring honesty in front of a microphone. Prove irresistible to the crowd. Again and again, he invites his fellow party members to tell him what issues are most important to them so that he could be a better truer representative for their concerns. We see these young men debating a lot of issues, especially gun control. There's a lot of talk about protecting the Second Amendment. But there are also counter arguments from students like Steven, who have clearly been shaken by the sheer number of school shootings. Another much discussed. Issue is abortion, which leads to one of the film's most revealing moments. A nationalist gubernatorial candidate named Robert, who's running on a strict pro life platform. Admits on camera that he secretly pro choice. Sometimes you've got to say what you've got to say in an attempt to win, he says. That's politics. Indeed, it is. And while the filmmakers are working from a mostly neutral fly on the wall perspective, their attitude toward the boy state program feels ambivalent. At best, Deliberately or not. The experiment seems to bring out a lot of the flaws of America's political system itself. Personal attacks, dishonest tactics and conflicts that hinge moron popularity than substantive policy debate. It's undeniably inspiring to see so many young men with bright, engaged minds and the best of them, as we see from the end of the movie have already gone on to impressive new accomplishments. But it's also dispiriting that so many of them have already learned to view politics in the most cynical way possible as the game to be won by any means necessary.

Why did you decide on four hundred dollars when previously families were receiving six hundred that will be a hardship for many what do you say to them? Hardship. This is the money that they need.

Ep. 008: Hedrick Smith talks grassroots democratic reform & reclaiming the American Dream - burst 02
"Edrich. How did we get here? Well you know I have to tell him like eleven following American Politics American economics for about five decades and I really watched both the political system and the economic system victory over that time in economics, the things really began to change in the eighties early eighties. From World War Two until the end of the seventies. When the economy grew the middle class standard of living rose with it. You can see him almost move in tandem all levels of society moved up together but then we started to get what they call shareholder capitalism maximum return to shareholders. Wages tended to get frozen. They got stagnant. The middle class of living deteriorated wealth got concentrated. The top one percents the top point went percents top point zero, zero, one percent, and then you had a bunch that happened in the economy partly because of shareholder capitalism, we can talk about that. But also because of the way the tax system was changed huge tax cuts. Under Ronald Reagan under George Bush on Donald Trump for the wealthy added about five trillion dollars five trillion dollars to the wealth of the people at the top end added to the insecurity of the middle class people not knowing whether or not. They could afford their retirement, send their kids to college of for their homes, make it from month to month, and at the same time that was happening a lot of that money was spilling into the political system. So you had the increase. Influence of mega donors, corporate money, and billionaire money particularly since the Citizens United Decision in January twenty ten by the Supreme Court which has given just a free pass to unlimited amounts of money and you've seen the amount of money skyrocket wing go into that. and. That's really affected the political system and the other thing is the party differences have hardened.

"This week on presidential words matter. We focus on Ronald Reagan. And how he used the power of his office to provide leadership and comfort in time of national tragedy, crisis and morning. The space shuttle Challenger's launch had already been delayed twice when it finally took off on January twenty. Eighth Nineteen eighty-six. This particular launch was widely publicized because for the first time in history, a civilian a teacher named Christa McAuliffe. Traveling into space. The plan was to have McCullough communicate to students from space according to the New York. Times nearly half America's school. Children aged nine to thirteen. Watch the event live in their classrooms. But tragically short seventy three seconds into flight. The world was stunned when the Challenger burst into flames killing all seven crew members on board. President, Ronald Reagan canceled his scheduled state of the Union address that evening and instead addressed the nation's grief. A young speechwriter, a friend and a hero of mine Peggy Noonan was tasked with drafting the president's remarks on this solemn occasion. It was a heavy burden as she later recalled quote i. kind of figured. The entire nation had just seen an auto accident. Newnan draft a speech that was aimed as she put it quote at those who are eight years old. Those who are eighteen and those who were eighty. It was nothing less than one of the greatest speeches in presidential history, and it earned Ronald Reagan his now famous moniker the great, communicator. With that let's listen to Ronald. Reagan's January Twentieth Nineteen eighty-six speech, following the space shuttle Challenger disaster. Ladies and Gentlemen I plan to speak to you tonight to report on the State of the Union. The events of earlier today of led me to change those plans. Today is a day from morning and remembering. Nancy and I are paying to the core, but the tragedy of the shuttle challenge. We know we share this pain with all the people of our country. This is truly a national loss. Nineteen years ago almost to the. We lost three astronauts in a terrible accident on the ground. But we've never lost an astronaut in flight. We've never had a tragedy like this. and. Perhaps we've forgotten the courage. It took for the crew of the shuttle. But they. The challenger seven were aware of the dangers. Overcame them and did their jobs brilliantly. We Mourn Seven Heroes Michael Smith. Dick's Gobi. Judith Resnik Ronald. McNair. Ellison Onisuka. Gregory, Jarvis and Christa McAuliffe We mourn their loss as a nation together. The families of the seven. We cannot bear as you do the full impact of this tragedy. But we feel a loss. We're thinking about you so very much. Your loved ones where daring and brave. They had that special grace at special spirit that says give me a challenge and I'll meet it with joy. They had a hunger to explore the universe discoveries truths. They wished to serve, and they did. They served off us. We've grown used to wonders in this century. It's hard to dazzle us. For Twenty five years the United States space program has been doing just that. We've grown used to the idea of space. And perhaps we forget that we've only just begun. We're still pioneers. They, the members of the Challenger crew were pioneers. And I wanted to say something to the school, children of America, who were watching the live coverage of the shuttle takeoff? I know it's hard to understand sometimes painful things like this happen. It's all part of the process of exploration and discovery. It's all part of taking a chance and expanding man's horizons. Future doesn't belong to the faint hearted. Belongs to the brave. The challenger crew was pulling us into the future. And we'll continue to follow the. I've always had great faith in and respect for our space program. And, what happened today does nothing to diminish it. We don't hide our space program. We don't keep secrets and cover things out. We do it all up front and in Public That's the way freedom isn't. We wouldn't change it for a minute. We'll continue our question space. There would be more shuttle flights and more shuttle crews, and yes more volunteers more civilians more teachers in space. Nothing ends here. Our hopes and our journeys continue. I wonder why that. I wish I could talk to every man and woman who works for NASA or who worked on this mission. And tell them. Your dedication and professionalism have moved and impressed us for decades. and. We know of your anguish. We share it. Is a coincidence today on this day three hundred ninety years ago, the great explorer Sir Francis Drake. died aboard ship off the coast of Adam. In his lifetime, the great frontiers where the oceans and historian later said he lived by the sea, died on it and was buried in it. Or today! We can say of the Challenger crew. Their dedication was like drake's complete. The crew of the space shuttle Challenger honored us for the manner in which they live their lives. We will never forget them. Nor the last time we saw. This morning. As they prepared for their journey and waved goodbye. And slipped the surly bonds over. The touch the face of God. Thank!.

"After nearly eight years in office the great communicator delivered. His thirty fourth and Final Oval Office address. His tenure was not without controversy and there is much about Ronald Reagan and his policies for historians and commentators to rightly criticise. But more than anything else. Reagan understood the power and importance of words in the final week of the nineteen eighty campaign. Reagan met then president. Jimmy Carter for their first and only debate. The former Hollywood actor and governor of California posed a simple question to the voters. Are you better off than you were? Four years ago the answer was a resounding no for his final presidential address. Reagan wanted to end on a note of what have become his trademark optimism. All of his political life the Gipper had talked about America as a shining city on a hill but he had never really defined what he meant as he prepared to leave office. Reagan finally communicated that vision pay attention to his words. In Reagan's view America was made great by free trade and the contributions of immigrants. If that city had to have walls those walls had doors. Those doors were open to all who had the heart and the will to get here. It is a message very different from what we hear today from those who claim his legacy three decades later with that. Let's listen to Ronald Reagan's farewell address fellow Americans. This is the thirty fourth time I'll speak to you from the Oval Office and the last we've been together eight years now and soon. It'll be time for me to go before I do. I wanted to share some thoughts. Some of which I've been saving for a long time. It's been the honor of my life to be your president so many of you have written the past few weeks to say. Thanks but I could say as much to you. Nancy and I are grateful for the opportunity. You gave us to sir. One of the things about the presidency is that you're always somewhat apart. You spend a Lotta time going by too fast and a car. Someone else's driving seeing the people should tinted glass appearance holding up a child and wave. You saw too late and couldn't return and so many times. I wanted to stop reach out from behind the glass and connect. Well maybe I can do a little that tonight. People ask how I feel about leaving and the fact is partying is such sweet sorrow. Sweep part is California and the ranch in Freedom. The sorrow the goodbyes. Of course and leaving this beautiful place you know down the hall and up the stairs from this office is the part of the White House where the president and his family live. There are a few favorite windows up there that I like to stand and look out of early in the morning. The view over the ground here to the Washington Monument and then the mall and the Jefferson Memorial but on mornings when the humidity is low. You can see past the Jefferson to the river the Potomac and the Virginia shore. Someone said that's the view. Lincoln had when he saw the smoke rising from the battle of bull run lying see more prosaic things the grass on the banks the morning traffic is people make their way to work now and then a sailboat on the river. I've been thinking a bit at that window. I've been reflecting on what the past eight years of mint and mean the image that comes to mind like a refrain is a nautical one small story about a big ship at a refugee and a sailor. It was back in the early eighties at the height of the boatpeople and the sailor was hard at work on the carrier. Midway which was patrolling the South China Sea. The sailor like most American servicemen was young smart and fiercely. Observant crew spied on the horizon. Leaky little boat and crammed inside were refugees from Indochina Hoping to get to America. The midway sent a small launch to bring them to the ship. Safety at the refugees made their way through the choppy seas. One spied the sailor on deck and stood up and called out to him. He yelled Hello American sailor. Freedom man small moment with a big meeting a moment. The sailor who wrote it in a letter couldn't get out of his mind and when I saw neither could I because that's what it has to. It was to be an American in the nineteen eighty S. We stood again for freedom. I know we always have but in the past few years. The World Again. In a way we ourselves rediscovered. It's been quite a journey this decade and we held together through some stormy seas and at the end together. We're reaching our destination. The fact is from Grenada. The Washington and Moscow summits from the recession of eighty one to eighty two to the expansion. That began in late. Eighty two and continues to this day. We've made a difference the way I see it. There were two great triumphs. Two things that I'm proudest one. Here's the economic recovery in which the people of America created and filled nineteen million new jobs. The other is the recovery of our morale. America is respected again in the world and looked to for leadership. Something that happened to me a few years ago. Reflect some of this. It was back in Nineteen eighty-one and I was attending my first big economic summit which was held that year in Canada. The meeting place rotates among the member countries. The opening meeting was a form dinner for the heads of government of the seven. Industrialized nations live. Sat there like the new kid in school and listened and it was offering. Soi this and hell that they dropped titles and spoke to not one another on a first name basis but at one point I sorta leaned in and said my name drawn but in that same year we began the actions we felt would ignite and economic comeback cut taxes and regulation started to cut spending so in the recovery began two years later another economic summit with pretty much the same cast at the big opening meeting. We all got together and all of a sudden just for a moment. I saw that everyone was sitting there looking at me and then one of them broke. Charlotte's tell us about the American miracle he said back in nineteen eighty. When I was running for president it was all so different. Some pundits said our programs would result in catastrophe. Our views on foreign affairs would cause war. Our plans for the economy would cause inflation to soar and bring about economic collapse. I even remember one highly. Respected economists saying back in nineteen eighty two that the engines of economic growth have shut down here and they're likely to stay that way for years to come while he him. The other opinion leaders were wrong. The fact is what they called. Radical was really right. What they call dangerous was just desperately needed and in all of that time I WANNA nickname. The great communicator. But I never thought it was my style or the words I use. That made a difference. It was the content. I wasn't a great communicator. But communication great things and they didn't spring full bloom from my brow. They came from the heart of a great nation from our experience. Our wisdom and our belief in the principles that have guided us for two centuries. They called it the Reagan Revolution then. I'll accept that but for me it always seeing more like the great rediscovery a rediscovery of our values and our common sense common sense told us that when you put a big tax on something that people will produce less of it. So we cut the people's tax rates and the people produce more than ever before the economy bloomed like a plant that had been cut back and could now grow quicker and stronger. Our economic program brought about the longest peacetime expansion in our history real family income up the poverty rate down entrepreneurship booming and an explosion in research and new technology. We're exporting more. Now than ever because America industry became more competitive and at the same time some of the national will to not down protectionist walls abroad instead of erecting them at home commonsense also told us that to preserve the peace. We'd have to become strong again. After years of weakness new confusion. So we rebuild our defenses. In this New Year we toasted the new peacefulness around the globe. Not only of the superpowers actually begun to reduce their stockpiles of nuclear weapons and hope for even more progress is bright but the regional conflicts that rack the globe are also beginning to cease. The Persian Gulf is no longer awards on the Soviets are leaving Afghanistan the Vietnamese. You're preparing to pull out of Cambodia and an American mediated accord was soon sent fifty thousand Cuban troops home from Angola. The lesson of all this was of course because we're a great nation. Our challenges seem complex. It will always be this way but as long as we remember our first principles and believe in ourselves the future will always be hours and something else we learned once you begin a great movement. There's no telling where to lint. We meant to change a nation and instead we changed the world. Countries across the globe are turning to free markets and free speech and turning away from the ideologies of the past for them the great rain discovery of the nineteen eighty s has been that low and behold the moral way of government is the practical way of government democracy. The profoundly good is also the profoundly productive. When you've got to the point where you can celebrate the anniversary of your thirty ninth birthday. You could sit back sometimes. Review your life and see it flowing before you for me. There was a fork in the river and it was right in the middle of my life. I never meant to go into politics. Wasn't my intention when I was young but I was raised to believe you had to pay your way for the blessings bestowed on you. I was happy with my career in the entertainment world but ultimately went into politics because I wanted to protect something. Precious hours was the first revolution in the history of mankind that truly reversed the course of government and with three little words we the people we the people tell the government what to do. It doesn't tell us we the people at the driver. The government is the car and we decide where it should go and by what route and how fast almost all the world's constitutions are documents in which governments tell people what their privileges are. Our Constitution is a document in which we the people.

Let's dive into the first of three speeches today. This one's by Ronald Reagan address to nation on the Challenger. Ladies and gentlemen. I do plan to speak to you tonight to report on the state of the Union but the events of earlier today have led me to change those plans. Today is a day for morning and remembering Nancy and I are pain to the core by the tragedy of the shuttle Challenger we know we share this pain with all the people of our country. This is truly a national loss. Nineteen years ago almost to the day. We lost three astronauts in a terrible accident on the grounds. But we've never lost an astronaut and flight. We've never had a tragedy like this. And perhaps we forgotten the courage. It took for the crew of the shuttle but they the Challenger seven were aware of the dangers but overcame them and did their jobs brilliantly. We more seven heroes Michael Smith. Dick's Gobi Judith. Resnik Ronald McNair. Ellison owner Zucca Gregory Jarvis and Christa McAuliffe. We mourn their loss as a nation together for the families of the seven. We cannot bear as you do the full impact of this tragedy. But we feel the loss and we're thinking about you so very much your loved ones where daring and brave and they had that special grace that special spirit says. GimMe a challenge. In a media with joy they had a hunger to explore the universe and discover its truths they wished to serve in the dead. They served all of us. We've grown used to wonders in this century. It's hard to dazzle us but for twenty five years the United States space program has been doing just that we've grown used to the idea of space and perhaps we forget that we've only just begun. Were still pioneers. They the members of the Challenger crew were pioneers. And I want to say something to the school children of America who were watching the live coverage of the shuttle's takeoff. I know it is hard to understand but sometimes painful things like this happen. It's all part of the process of exploration and discovery. It's all part of taking a chance in expanding man's horizons. The future doesn't belong to the faint hearted it belongs to the brave the challenger crew was pulling us into the future and we'll continue to follow them. I've always had great faith and respect for our space program in what happened today does nothing to diminish it. We don't hide our space program. We don't keep secrets to cover things up we do it all upfront and public vast. The way freedom is and we wouldn't change it for a minute. We'll continue our questions space. That will be more shuttle flights and more shuttle crews in. Yes more volunteers. More civilians more teachers in space. Nothing ends here. Our hopes and our journeys continue. I want to add that. I wish I could talk to every man woman who works for NASA or who worked on this mission and tell them your dedication and professionalism has moved and impressed us for decades and we know of your anguish. We share it. There's a coincidence today on this day. Three hundred ninety years ago. The Great Explorer Sir Francis. Drake died aboard ship off the coast of Panama in his lifetime. The great frontiers were oceans in a historian later said he lived by the sea died on it and was buried in it. While today we can say of the Challenger crew their dedication was like drake's complete the crew of the space shuttle Challenger honored us by the manner in which they live their lives and we will never forget them nor the last time we saw them this morning as a prepared for the journey and waved goodbye and slipped the surly bonds of earth to touch the face of God.
