In 1960 John F. Kennedy gave an acceptance speech for the nomination of the democratic party at the convention just like Obama will do tonight. In this speech he says
"Our task is not merely one of itemizing Republican failures. Nor is that wholly necessary. For the families forced from the farm do not need to tell us of their plight. The unemployed miners and textile workers know that the decision is before them in November. The old people without medical care, the families without a decent home, the parents of children without a decent school: They all know that it's time for a change. We are not here to curse the darkness; we are here to light a candle. As Winston Churchill said on taking office some twenty years ago: If we open a quarrel between the present and the past, we shall be in danger of losing the future. Today our concern must be with that future. For the world is changing. The old era is ending. The old ways will not do."Sound familiar? Change theme? The same exact platform as 48 years ago. The same rhetoric. The same ideology. The same words. The same problems. The same dem talking points. For Kennedy it was "The New Frontier". For Obama its "Change we Can Believe In". Similar catch phrases, but two completely different men IMO.
On a side note: I tell you right now, if Obama in his speech tonight talks even a little bit about the threat of terrorism I will lay off him for one week. Not one word in this convention about the dangerous world in which we live.
