    There seems to be a cottage of industry of ex-mistresses of Kennedy suddenly popping up to write books. Sheesh.

    He’s found 3 already (at least), and he’s not even in the White House yet.

    Republicans prefer to shoot people in the face.

    Wait, Kennedy slept around? I had no idea.

    His philandering notwithstanding, given the short time that he was the president, Kennedy was the worst president of the USA since the WWII.
    .
    On the foreign front: His weakness exhibited by the Bay of Pigs debacle and then in the meeting with Khrushchev brought about the blockade of Berlin, then the wall, and ultimately the Soviet missiles in Cuba. While his handling of the Cuban Missile crises is being hailed by many as a major achievement – in reality it was was one of the greatest and longest lasting failures of American foreign policy: While Kennedy waited to act – for months, leading up to the actual delivery and pending installation of the nuclear missiles, before he confronted the Soviets, and then in the most public forums – at the UN, and embarrassed them . . . . which brought the World to the brink of WWIII. The Communists in the Warsaw Pact countries issued live ammunition to its ‘general’ military – that was unprecedented as communists did not trust the ‘foot’ soldiers with weapons . . . . . In the end, the settlement required us to shut-down our listening station in Turkey, along with other unpublished appeasements, but most importantly, it triggered the incredible nuclear arms race whereby the USSR had quantitatively substantially surpassed the US in virtually every aspect, bringing about the MAD policy. Further, Kennedy started our ‘excursion’ to Vietnam . . . .
    .
    On the domestic front: While he lowered the marginal tax rates (very good), he also allowed by way of an executive order for public employees to unionize – how’s that for the practice of the plagiarized ’ask not what your country can do for you but what you can do for your country". That single executive order has triggered the greatest explosion of economic cancer in the US, ever.

    Still wondering how someone with a bad back that was in extreme pain a lot of the time (J.F.K.) can carry on affairs with various women.

    @petergrt

    The only economic cancer this country has ever had is the distribution of wealth from the middle class to the very rich via Reaganomics, supply-side or trickle-down economics, take your pick on what you want to call it.

    As long as they are consenting adults, I don’t give a rats butt what they are doing, democrat or republican, in their private lives. MY QUESTION IS HOW GOOD ARE THEY AT THEIR JOB?

    You really should read a history book. Among other errors, the Berlin blockade occurred long before he took office.

    JFK having relations outside of his marriage. What about Thomas Jefferson, why aren’t his affairs big news? Let’s dredge up as much dirt as we can about irrelevant events.

    If Jefferson can be classified as a Democrat, we WILL hear about it here. If he’s classifed as Republican, no chance.
    (Apparently the last REpublican with a sex drive was Harding.)

    but he was handsome, and you know that’s SO important in America, ask Dennis Kucinich.

    @Mulvi

    can you imagine putting any Kennedy on trial (or any man) the way Clinton was put on trial for Lewinsky? Never happen. But then we so needed diversion after the end of the O.J. coverage. and we were so very busy sliming Clinton while Bin Laden was getting his ducks in a row.

    I think Bush Jr. holds the honors for worst president. and he had the great good fortune not to be assassinated by the powers that be. Because he and his kind are the powers that be.
