Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech today before a joint session of Congress was “Churchillian,” says Charles Krauthammer. But not Churchill triumphant.
“In a way it was Churchillian — not in delivery; it was not up to Bibi’s norm — but in the sonorousness and the seriousness of what he said,” Krauthammer contended on Special Report. “And it was not Churchill of the ‘40s. This was the desperate Churchill of the ‘30s. This was a speech of, I think, extraordinary power but great desperation.”
