Granted, we all have been hearing about Reagan lately, but I will have to say this - he was a very wise men, whose contribution to the fall of communism earned him my respect, whatever his other faults might have been.

I agree with him 100%. See some of his other quotes on wikiquote.
"My fellow Americans, I'm pleased to tell you today that I've signed legislation that will outlaw Russia forever. We begin bombing in five minutes."
* During a microphone check on August 11 1984, unaware that he was being broadcast.
