Durbin Says 41 Played Critical Role in Helping World Adapt to Fall of Iron Curtain

WASHINGTON, D.C. (RFD) — President Ronald Reagan gets the lion’s share of the credit for the fall of the Iron Curtain. In a Senate Floor tribute to President George H.W. Bush, Senator Dick Durbin says the President, who passed away Friday, played a critical role in helping the world adapt.

Durbin says in these times of win at all costs politics, “many of us feel that deep longing for a kinder, gentler nation that President Bush promised in his inaugural address 30 years ago.”
