Comparing current politicians to Ronald Reagan is a "terrible mistake," said the man who wrote Mr. Reagan's famous "tear down this wall" speech 26 years ago.
The 40th president's iconic 1987 speech at the Berlin Wall is "a moment that sums up for me a great deal of what I so loved and admired about Ronald Reagan," the text's author, Peter M. Robinson, told The Washington Times on the 20th anniversary of the speech.
