  1. We watched a documentary on a day in the life of President Kennedy on TMC tonight. It was made for TV by ABC in 1961. First of all, you couldn’t get a TV audience today to sit down and watch anything as ‘boring’ and informative as this. Everything has to be entertainment now. A second point I want to make is that it followed the President through his very busy day in the White House constantly meeting with experts and advisers, and all the information Kennedy had at the ready to converse with the ‘professionals’ was amazing. What a sad contrast the present occupant of the White House makes!

  2. I don’t think I will ever forget the spectacle two days ago when both the Obamas and the Clintons grappled with a large wreath and awkwardly placed in on JFK’s grave at Arlington. This was preceded by one of the most obsequiously cloying performances by the liar-in-chief as he placed the Medal of Freedom around Bill Clinton’s scrawny neck. All of this, of course, designed to repair Obama’s image and relationship with the Clintons following certain quotes in the newly released book, Double Down.
    Obama is the anti-JFK.

    • I saw these pictures too, Girly. Akward spectacle. I guess that “ordinary”, not Obama hired, photographers took these pictures as they were not flattering to little Barry.
      The article mentioned in my reply to Julie includes many photos, Souza photos compared to other photos, were you can see how he controls his image. That picture in Mandelas old cell, gosh it´s so silly and fake. And his family play along.

      • Very revealing article, swedishlady,. Reportedly, Souza is at his side at all times from morning til night. Which begs the question: How distracting is it to have your personal photographer snapping your picture every five minutes?
        In this case, it takes top priority – I read that there are more photos of Obama than any of the presidents.

        If he survives the next 3 years and eventually gets a library it will be a TOTUS, an empty chair and empty suit,, and a gazillion Pete Souza ,masterpieces.

        Oh, and my favorite photo is the one of him sitting all by his lonesome on the Rosa Parks bus. He doesn’t miss a trick!

  3. While some may take a sidelong look at JFK, and his extracurricular activities while in the WH, I personally think that a large part of his legacy has been tarnished due to his idiot brother, the Lyin’ of the Senate, Ted.

    John screwed up with the Bay of Pigs, primarily due to have yes men surrounding him in the run up to the invasion. He learned from that mistake, and, IMO, handled the Cuban Missile Crisis with an amount of strength that you will not find in the current occupant of the Oval.

    We are sitting on a similar situation now with Iran, and Obama has no where near the internal fortitude that JFK had in handling the Soviets. Had Obama been POTUS for those 14 day of October, 1962, we would have a Soviet nuke base 90 miles off the coast of Florida.

    Say what you will about JFK, he believed in his country, having served his country in its time of need and peril. Obama? He has only served himself and his minions.

  4. Will he be rewriting Kennedy speeches like he did Lincoln’s?

    “Ask not what your Country can’t do for you, ask what YOU can do for Obama!”

    “Ich Bin Ein Sunni!”

    “Let us not seek the Republican answer or the Democratic answer, but the Obama answer. Let us not seek to fix the blame for the past on anyone but George Bush and the Tea Party. Let me be your only future.”

    “Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the destruction of the Republican party.”

    “A nation that is afraid to let its people judge the truth and falsehood in an open market is a nation that is governed by Obama.”

    “The ignorance of one voter in a democracy aids the security of Democrat re-election opportunities”

    “The very word ‘secrecy’ is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths, and to secret proceedings; however, they’re OK when Obama does them, and don’t ask questions you racist or Eric Holder will be over with the IRS to straighten your nary a$$ out.”

    (not real quotes, BTW, but seem likely withal…)

    Some interesting REAL quotes there, too many to mention, but one of my most appropriate ones for us to think on TODAY is;

    “Communism has never come to power in a country that was not disrupted by war or corruption, or both.”
    John F. Kennedy

    And how! Well, we have the SECOND one…)

    I ask about the rewriting too, in the context of OTHER Obama historical revisions, from saying HE didn’t say “red line” to HE didn’t come up with the sequester, to his rewriting of EVERY OTHER President’s official biography to feature HIM. Seems like altering history to suit himself is kind of his hobby…

    U.S. Persons, make sure you hang on to your WRITTEN histories, or the kids who know nothing but the Internet may one day only know the Obama version of “history”…

  5. Obama the ‘Magic Negro’The Illinois senator lends himself to white America’s idealized, less-than-real black man.

    “Obama’s fame right now has little to do with his political record or what he’s written in his two (count ’em) books, or even what he’s actually said in those stem-winders. It’s the way he’s said it that counts the most. It’s his manner, which, as presidential hopeful Sen. Joe Biden ham-fistedly reminded us, is “articulate.” His tone is always genial, his voice warm and unthreatening, and he hasn’t called his opponents names (despite being baited by the media).

    Like a comic-book superhero, Obama is there to help, out of the sheer goodness of a heart we need not know or understand. For as with all Magic Negroes, the less real he seems, the more desirable he becomes. If he were real, white America couldn’t project all its fantasies of curative black benevolence on him.”

    • His tone is always genial, his voice warm and unthreatening

      The Magic Negro thing is to my mind a pot stirrer. Also, warm and genial? How about snide and oversimplified accompanied by a baleful look?
