President Kennedy put a man on the moon.

Obama put a man in a womens restroom. (and thinks that is progress)
I think that type of progress is his legacy.

    Strange notion of a hero. He started out by cutting out the air cover at the Bay of Pigs & then trying to blame the fiasco on Eisenhower's bad planning. Then he let the East Germans build the Berlin Wall. Next was the Cuban Missile crisis where he secretly gave the Russians a deal they couldn't refuse. Then the use of Federal troops to occupy Oxford, Miss & Montgomery, Ala. Finally the assassination of President Diem that got the Vietnam War up & going. Who knows what other foul-ups he could have gotten into if he had served just ONR full term.
    He was a disaster looking for a place to happen & he always found it.

    Man you need to lighten up before you stroke-out [:D], I'm pretty sure Okie743 intended for this thread to be light-hearted, not a damn history lesson. You should easily find employment with Hillarys "I'm with her" campaign [:)]. I was around when Kennedy was alive.....I lived thru what you wrote, experienced the effect of some of it too [;)]

    To be fair, you should also include he was commander of a PT boat that was sunk and even with a broken back, was able to save most of his crew. For that injury in the service of our country, he paid for it with pain the remainder of his life.

    gruntled,

    No matter how much you choose to reassess Kennedy's political career he will always be a hero insofar as his Naval career is concerned.

    quote:The medals were presented to Lt. Kennedy in June 1944 for his heroics and injuries sustained in the rescue of the crew of PT 109 during WWII on August 2, 1943 when the motor torpedo boat was struck by a Japanese destroyer.

    Lt. Kennedy received:

    The Navy Marine Corps Medal

    The Purple Heart

    Best.

    Kennedy's back pain was from BEFORE he went into the service. He hid it to get in. Of course he got a medal. His father was Joe Kennedy. It was Ted Kennedy that had a broken back from an aircraft accident. Don't overlook the fact that he was responsible for getting his boat sunk in the first place.

    As long as we keep re-writing history from our present location, we can make hero's out of crooks and crooks out of hero's! I wanted to say villain's but not quite sure I spelled it right.[:I]

    I too grew up with IKE, JFK, and all since beyond. I lived this history and have direct memories without any help from anyone.

    The news media in those days was REAL news and not a paid political beauty contest.

    Oh yea......this is a joke! Sorry

    somewhat true about the back injury as it seems to go back to college days, but being run over by a destroyer didn't help the situation very much. don't forget JFK brother[pilot] was killed in the line of duty while trying a remote piloted bomber laden with explosives on a 1 way mission..

    Probably the Kennedys paid far more dearly for their misdeeds than the Clintons every will.

    Bobby was shot running for POTUS 'cause he crossed the mod.

    Teddy killed Mary Joe Koppeneck when he was drunk, got away with it and stayed in congress until he died.

    JFK was shot in Dallas by ?? ~ still in question regardless of the "official report."

    Caroline Kennedy tried to run some years back but all she could say in the middle & end of any sentence was "you know"

    I also remember the Kennedy years. I was 14, to young to know much about anything of substance but I well remember that Kennedy made us, as a country feel good. Young, handsome, personable, fun to watch at a press conference. Then there was that young good looking wife he was hitting regular enough to have two kids while in the White House.

    Frankly, I'm getting tired of these draft avoiders who think that hustling for dollars constitutes "public service".

    I don't include the Carpetbagger, since she volunteered to join the Marines.

    gruntled, you mentioned Bay of Pigs. In 1964 I was stationed at Ft. Monroe, VA (CONARC headquarters) as a draftsman. The only thing I did worth mentioning was draw the invasion plans for Cuba. Back then is was pen & ink on poster board! That plan was never executed and I wish I could find the charts I made in the National Archives. I just don't know how to go about it.
    It's too late for me, save yourself.

    The Bay of Pigs invasion was in April 1961. I remember the time because I was in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean on a troop ship coming back home. All the news we had was what they told us on the loud speakers & maybe there was a ship's paper. For all we knew it was the beginning of WW III. We were quite happy to see the Statue of Liberty.
    I can't imagine any planed invasion in 1964 after the promise we made to the USSR as part of the Cuban missile crisis. Perhaps it was just one of the contingency plans that are never really expected to be used.

    Kennedy said, Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country. And Obozo said, Ask not what you can do for your country, ask what your country can do for you.

    Pretty sure Teddy killed Mary Jo Kopechne in Chappaquiddick while driving drunk. He hit the freakin' bridge, dropped the car in the water, then lied about it for another 40 years.
    A pox on those elitist scum.

    The story was a lot more sordid that than. You need to read the Reader's Digest story on the event. They published it just in time to derail his run against the peanut farmer.
