Morning in America (Reagan '84)


Now granted, back in 1984, with his poll numbers, Reagan could’ve basically mooned the camera and still won. That being said, it’s hard to look at this ad and not feel pretty damned good about the USA. Putting politics aside, it perfectly evoked the spirit of Reagan’s optism. And the narrator (ad man Hal Riney) has a voice that seems like it leapt out of a Norman Rockwell painting.

    And in the same vein, who could forget Reagan’s imtomral words in 1986 explaining why the US was bombing Libya in response to its terrorist attacks: They counted on America to be passive. They counted WRONG. I’m not sure I have ever felt so proud of a President at any moment since then. I had to physically restrain myself from jumping up and cheering because I didn’t want to miss the rest of his speech.
