In his analysis of President Obama’s inauguration speech, Fox News’ Bret Baier was surprised that more attention wasn’t paid to what he thought was a familiar phrase: “peace in our time.”
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.
Even more surprising than the lifting of a line from Neville Chamberlain, though, was a tweet to Baier asking, who’s Neville Chamberlain?
Baier’s response? Google it.
So, which is more troubling? That Americans don’t know who Neville Chamberlain was, or that the president chose him to quote in his inaugural address?
