Part of the concept of running in elections & serving in office is the need to make remarks at the right time that will help move along a leader or a party's agenda. This is true whether you are the Premier or an Opposition Leader, or just a regular MLA or politician of any level of governance. An actor by trade, President Ron Reagan knew at the The Brandenburg Gate portion of The Berlin Wall he'd have to put on one hell of a performance to his audience consisting of Soviet Chairman Mikhail S. Gorbachev, Communist, Privolnoye, North Caucasus Krai & the East German commie pinko regime to bring down the wall that tore students & their families apart in Berlin apart for XXVIII (28) years. He was successful as the wall fell under the watch of his successor XLIst President George H.W. Bush, Republican-Texas a scant II.V (2.5) years after Pres. Reagan retired as Commander-In-Chief. So yes just as his gorgeous bride Nancy thought her beloved "Ronnie" was up to the task, "The Gipper" proved she was absolutely right!
"Mister Gorbachev: tear down this wall!"
