214. No. Obviously you just can't read very well.
Or maybe your PAC pays you to be obtuse.

"Working with the newly elected President at the Kennedy familys Palm Beach villa in early January 1961, speechwriter Theodore Sorensen struggled to interweave the two sides of J.F.K. as the two men crafted the President-elects Inaugural speech. Looking back, says Sorensen today, the most important line of that ringing address wasnt, Ask not what your country can do for youask what you can do for your country. It was, For only when our arms are sufficient beyond doubt can we be certain beyond doubt that they will never be employed. This peace-through-strength message was the Kennedy policy in a nutshell, Sorensen observes."

Please explain to me how you aren't disputing Robert Dallek here.
