    Most brilliant speech writer ever uses “peace in our time” in his historic world-changing speech

    Most brilliant speech writer ever uses “peace in our time” in his historic world-changing speech

    I missed this when reading Obama’s inaugural speech (still haven’t listened to it).

    I just heard Jonah Goldberg make reference to it on Special Report with Bret Baier.

    Via Tom Ricks at Foreign Policy Blog, Obama’s 2nd inaugural address: ‘Peace in our time’? Really, Mr. President?

    The WTF moment for me in Obama’s second inaugural address, delivered Monday at noon, was his use of the phrase “peace in our time.” This came during his discussion of foreign policy, and in such circles, that phrase is a synonym for appeasement, especially of Hitler by Neville Chamberlain in September 1938. What signal does his using it send to Iran? I hope he was just using it to jerk Netanyahu’s chain.

    Here’s the full sentence:

    And we must be a source of hope to the poor, the sick, the marginalized, the victims of prejudice – not out of mere charity, but because peace in our time requires the constant advance of those principles that our common creed describes:  tolerance and opportunity; human dignity and justice.

    Obamaphiles can’t have it both ways.

    Either, as they say, he’s the most brilliant speech writer ever who carefully crafts his texts to bring forward historical analogies — in which case he used the phrase deliberately which is frightening — or he’s way overblown and did it without realizing the significance.

    Some choice.
