House Speaker John Boehner says President Ronald Reagan was a natural leader with a can-do attitude. Writing for AOL News
Reagan's 100th birthday -- which is Sunday -- Boehner memorialized the late president as a man who had confidence in the "quiet courage" and "individual genius" of his fellow Americans.
"When I think of Ronald Reagan, I remember a natural leader -- someone who inspired me with his belief that our best days are still ahead and his confidence in the indomitable spirit of the American people," writes Boehner.
"Reagan's faith in the American people -- unshackled by government -- to overcome any obstacle rallied supporters from every background to his side, and I believe it will continue to inspire us, and all those across the world who yearn to be free, for generations to come."
