The New Republic makes the argument that Barack Obama is the next JFK. Let’s see if that holds true:
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 to assure the survival and the success of liberty.
And Senator Obama? Apparently preventing genocide in Iraq just isn’t his thing. Selling out the Iraqi people? Fine by him, so long as we tuck tail and run. Let the Iraqis kill each other, and maybe we’ll care when a few hundred thousand are dead. Genocide just isn’t our problem.
JFK? Not even close.
