The Great Presidential Debates features five pivotal debates in the race for the White House: John F. Kennedy versus Richard Nixon in 1960, Jimmy Carter versus Ronald Reagan in 1980, Bill Clinton versus George H. W. Bush versus Ross Perot in 1992, George W. Bush versus Al Gore in 2000, and Barack Obama versus Mitt Romney in 2012.
George H.W. Bush takes a special look back on the momentous global events of 1989-1992 - the fall of the Berlin Wall, the collapse of the Soviet Union, and the liberation of Kuwait, to name a few - and reminisces about what it was like to be President through such unprecedented times. Choosing from among the hundreds of speeches he gave while in office, former President Bush selects the speeches that meant the most to him, and introduces each one with candid comments.
A day that will live in infamy.... Nothing to fear but fear itself.... Ask not what your country can do for you.... Ich bin ein Berliner.... Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall.
