Democratic U.S. Senators Barack Obama and Joe Lieberman gave speeches the last two days on Iraq. You decide who sounds more like John F. Kennedy, the gold standard for Democrats the last half century.
JFK: Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, in order to assure the survival and the success of liberty.
OBAMA: There is no military solution to the civil war that rages on in Iraq. And it is time for us to redeploy so that a political solution becomes possible. The news from Iraq is very bad, and it has been that way for the last four years.
LIEBERMAN: The esteemed historian of the Middle East, Bernard Lewis, was in Washington this past week. He said that, when he looks at the world today and the threats we face, it reminds him of the 1930sâ€”and that he hears far more voices that sound like Chamberlain than like Churchill. And so I challenge each of you to find the voice of Churchill inside yourself, and let it be heard this week on Capitol Hill and throughout the nation in the days and years ahead.
