I thought President Obama’s speech in Cairo, Egypt, was eloquent, historic, and could well be regarded as one of the most important foreign policy speeches ever made by any U.S. president.
This was the opening paragraph to this article on Fox News by Lanny Davis.
Now I realize it is hard to get farther left than Davis and he is an unabashed Obama supporter. This is all fine, each to his own. This statement was way over the top though and has been part of a pattern to make Obama more than what he is.
Think about some of the foreign policy speeches given by past Presidents, just a few of which are:
Ich bin ein Berliner
John F Kennedy
Mr. Gorbachev, open this gate. Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!
Yesterday, December 7, 1941 -- a date which will live in infamy -- the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.
Franklin D Roosevelt
So the question is, what are your thoughts on where Obama's speech falls in the history of Presidential speeches?
