<p>Ed Schultz one-upped colleague Chuck Todd on the 17 December 2014 edition of his MSNBC program. Hours after Todd likened President Obama&#39;s policy announcement on Cuba to the fall of the Berlin Wall, Schultz compared the Democrat&#39;s address to a famous 1987 speech given at the Wall by his predecessor, Ronald Reagan: &quot;Isn&#39;t this Barack Obama&#39;s &#39;tear down this wall, Mr. Castro&#39; &ndash; that kind of a moment? I mean, if change can take place with the Soviet Union, why can&#39;t it take place with the Cuban people here?&quot;</p>
