When one looks for great examples of Republican Party member statesmanship, one does not have to look very far.....there are, indeed, so many.
The great Communicator himself, Ronald McDonald, said "tear down this wall" to Gorbachov.....imagine how those words must have burned the Soviet leader's conscience.

These glorious leaders believe. That's what makes them so great. Just as Joshua blew his trumpet and the walls of Jericho fell down, so too Ronald McDonald uttered the words that brought down the Berlin Wall. Only believe is always the answer.
