Name that President (Part 1)

American politics gets pretty crazy at times.  While partisan debates are interesting at times, I really enjoy diving deeper into the situations and the context behind the argument.  While I chose to study and specialize in a scientific healthcare field, my passion for policy and governance brings me right back.  I had the opportunity to present to a group of students today on public speaking and so I reached into the archives to demonstrate great speakers.  As I read through some of the past Presidential speeches, I couldn’t help but think how the speech didn’t exactly “fit” into the mold that we often refer to when we think of Democrat or Republican.

So with that, I’d like to start a short series where I’ll give you an excerpt from a speech and I’d like you to guess (without the use of search engines) the party of the President who delivered the speech.

 In the long history of the world, only a few generations have been granted the role of defending freedom in its hour of maximum danger. I do not shrink from this responsibility–I welcome it.

    Other than FDR, JFK may have some of the most well known speeches. He’s a democrat by the way.

    Democrat? FDR?

  • This quote was pulled from John F. Kennedy’s inaugural address in 1961. I thought it was interesting because it sounded very strong, from a military sense, and when you look at his entire speech (and background for that matter) he was very strong on foreign affairs.
