This JFK quote sounds like it was written about 04' election.
I know it has been posted on DU here before, but it's just too good not to post again.

"Our opponents would like the people to believe that in a time of danger it would be hazardous to change the administration that has brought us to this time of danger. I think it would be hazardous not to change. I think it would be hazardous to continue four more years of stagnation and indifference here at home and abroad, of starving the underpinnings of our national power, including not only our defense but our image abroad as a friend."

2. Amazing President
I would even bet he did not get that quote from a speechwriter or a handler. It sure would be nice to have a President with some brains again. sigh.....

2006 and 2008.
