Politics of incompetence
Ann Coulter has busted the myth about the golden child, JFK’s foreign policy disasters. (right, its plural)
“Crimea River” goes to the heart of JFK’s foreign policy, which brought on the bay of pigs, and where Khrushchev walked all over the amateur bootlegger. That’s the part Dems never talk about with JFK. It’s the moon or his fiscal policy they point to. But it sure doesn’t appear he carried any gravitas overseas.
Ann points out how they even turned JFK’s bay of pigs into a myth.
The Kennedy Myth Machine has somehow turned JFK’s handling of the Cuban Missile Crisis into a brilliant foreign policy coup. The truth is: (1) Russia would never have dared move missiles to Cuba had Khrushchev not realized that JFK was a nincompoop; and (2) it wasn’t a victory.
But its about much more than JFK. Read it here, good for a few reality chuckles:
One small leap for mankind, one giant JFK myth busted.
Truth never seems to have any consequences for progressives. But it does leave a stain.
