Have a Good Look at this Guy

Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.
People actually get touched when they quote this; to me, they're touched in the head. It's an invitation to pay more taxes or to become cannon-fodder in Vietnam (or whatever war is popular at any given moment with those in power). Even worse, you know where he got this gem from? He ripped it from a speech his headmaster at school used to hold: Ask not what Choate can do for you, ask what you can do for Choate. Now, really.
The New York Times, 10 May 2005

Kennedy did so much to end the discrimination of blacks.
Maybe so; I'm not too sure myself. But do you know that he never even took the trouble to meet Martin Luther King? The much-vilified Richard Nixon did so. Not that I like the last two guys so much.

JFK couldn't help the Cuban invasion.
The Bay-of-Pigs scandal was inherited from the Eisenhower administration. Only question is, so why didn't he stop it? And why make Adlai Stevenson lie about it in the United Nations? (These questions are what you'd call rhethorical.)
Then, when the USSR put rockets in Cuba to compensate for those the USA had had in Turkey all the time, it was JFK who threatened to start throwing atom bombs in retaliation; so Chruschev took the rockets out, obviously figuring JFK was crazy enough to do just that. You decide for yourself who was the wiser man here.
Not that I like Nikita so much. But his chauffeur ate along at the family table.

Hey hey hey, LBJ,
    How many kids did you kill today?

Lyndon B. Johnson, Kennedy's VP and successor, was dubbed a murderer because he started the Vietnam war. He didn't: Kennedy did, and, different from the Cuban invasion, had managed to get the USA so deeply into it that his successor couldn't possibly have stopped the country's involvement.

- Kennedy's favorite literature was Ian Fleming's James Bond 007. I rest my case.
St. John Kennedy was an arrogant, hypocritical, underhand bastard.
Small wonder: Look at his family, at his father's and his brothers' mentality.
Look at his wife, a mindless jet set member who later married a vulgar, ruthless Greek tanker tycoon.
The whole scene disgusts me.

If the guy hadn't been murdered, who knows what else he might have gotten the USA into.
(Not that I like people getting murdered.)
