"Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!"

It's the anniversary of the speech that contained that famous line. Many of Reagan's advisers, including Colin Powell, urged him not to say it. Many others, I'm sure, sneered at Reagan's naive and irresponsible rhetoric.

Were they still sneering when the wall came down, I wonder?

Powerline has video of the speech and commentary by Peter Robinson, who wrote the line.
