Neville Again: Andrea Mitchell Compares John Kerry to Churchill

So very problematic, given that Kerry’s boss loathes Churchill, to the point of his showy sophomoric gesture of returning his bust to England shortly after taking office.

But then, given that Obama’s vision of America resembles the dissipated postwar England that Churchill predicted before being ousted by British voters immediately after World War II as an impediment to the bland socialized nihilism that he warned against, perhaps Andrea’s almost on to something.

And yes, of course, there’s another prime minister whom Kerry superficially resembles and whom Obama has (knowingly or unknowingly) quoted admirably. But that would be an insult to Neville Chamberlain, who loved his country far more than Kerry ever did.
