    It could have been. As I recall he was getting ready to make a recorded statement (maybe his weekly address to the country) and was goofing around with the audio crew and tapped the mic (tap...tap...tap...) and let go with the zinger.

    It was obviously meant in jest which everyone knew, but some just wanted to use is as an excuse to attack him.

    If Breshnev had said the same thing about us we would have accepted it for what it was and would have ignored it.

    Thats what I thought it was something like that, pretty sure I might have read about it in a book about the relationship between Reagan and Gorbachev that I read for a research paper last year.

    In terms of the other way, I agree too except I'd have probably used Khrushchev's name rather than Brezhnev.

    I used Brshnev because he was a contemporary of Reagan's and lead the USSR at was what was most likely the apex of their power.
