Fifty years have passed and the contrast between JFK and Obama could not be stronger. They seem polar opposites.
Obama is no JFK. But more importantly, thank God that JFK was no Obama. Would we even be here now? Listening to Kennedy’s words, Obama was not in the same league.
People keep rationalizing to make excuses for Obama. They point out other politicians screwed up. Except Obama ran as the non-politician. He ran as the outsider, and the antithesis to Washingtonian problems. He ran on transparency- not corruption.
Now the Obamaholics’ best argument is what, that he is just like every other power-hungry, self-centered, corrupt politico? So he’s okay. That’s his defense. And except that the reason people supported him was because he was not supposed to be typical.
So when you compare him to JFK there is no comparison. Everybody likes JFK too. But he was anti-communbist. What would he do in a party of communists?
Oh, and then they use the size of the problem as an excuse for Obama. Because problems are so bad and big, that somehow transforms the hero into a victim…anything to avoid seeing him as the villain. As I said, he’s no JFK.
Problems are supposedly the reason Barry ran, but the problems are now his crutch for all his problems.
Obama ran for the most powerful job in the world so that he could be accountable for nothing, so he could blame everyone else. Does that sound JFK? He ran to put people down in their place. He ran to be inspirational, and yet he’s the textbook example for deceit.
Words from JFK’s speech he never gave to Trade Mart:
Ignorance and misinformation can handicap the progress of a city or a company, but they can, if allowed to prevail in foreign policy, handicap this country’s security.
And his words for the welcome dinner:
And our duty as a Party is not to our Party alone, but to the nation, and, indeed, to all mankind. Our duty is not merely the preservation of political power but the preservation of peace and freedom.
