    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.

    Funny, how little sense of history you fruitloops have. I was born into a world at war, 1943. I was on base in uniform when we stopped those Soviet ships off Cuba.

    Peace in our time? Compared to what I grew up with, we are there right now.
