Old enough to remember JFK as POTUS. Read a lot about him in 60s and 70s post his death. Then read Killing of Kennedy. All of that brought back some memories. JFK would be considered a right wing extremist today by 0bamao and Co. Why? > He was a practicing Roman Catholic who actually attended Mass. Prayed. In spite of his well known marital infidelity (like King David), he was a man of faith. > Wanted to cut taxes to boost the economy. Gee, where did he get that idea. > Was opposite his Democratic Party on civil rights, not as far as his brother RK, but was in favor of the civil rights cause. Remember, the Democrats were all about segregation. > Believed in a strong military. Faced down Russia in 1962 and actually called them on TV "Liars". He (see on you tube) called the Soviet Ambassador a liar. > Was very much anti Communist. Wanted to stop the spread of communism, yet did not want to get in a muck in Vietnam. > Loved the USA. Did not give speeches apologizing for the USA. Imho, I think he was growing into becoming a great President, but since it was cut short, he got canonized as greater than actual.
