My thoughts on Kennedy have morphed over time.  I was twelve when he died.  Of course there was a natural tendency for a young kid to think he was a fallen hero and I fell into that.  I watched Cronkite do his bit and I bought the whole thing hook line and sinker.  I had no idea what Walter Cronkite was and is. (He's a globalist socialist of the highest order.  He thinks we should sign on to letting the United Nations rule the world.  It seems to irritate him that we even have a government.)  Kennedy was a charismatic individual.  The media likes to play Clinton up as being the charming Kennedyesqe clone, but compared to John Kennedy, Bill Clinton was Eddie Haskel.

Over the years I noted that Kennedy was a ladies man.  Read that, he hit on anything with two legs and a will to serve her country.  His conquests included (mob boss) Sam Giancana's hand picked liason, Judith Exner as well as an East German spy.  John had his fling with Marilyn Monroe before handing her off to Robert.  Robert may have been one of the last persons to see her alive, contrary to reports at the time.  It was all very hush hush.  That's the way all of the Kenndy dirt was treated back then.  The media was in love with the Camelot image they created and the nation be damned, they were sticking with it.

There's a lot of ground to cover with John.  His political career was as classic case of double cross and hoodwinking the masses.  His first election was won due to his dad manipulating the process.  His main opponent whose name I can't remember, lost because John's dad placed another person on the ballot with the same name.  Nobody knew who to vote for, the opposing vote was split and John was in.

When it came time for him to run for President Joe (his dad) paid off Daily to swing the vote in Chicago.  For many years I thought this was all that was needed, but as it turns out Texas had a high incidence of vote irregularities as well.  Nixon only lost by something like 100,000 votes.  I'm not sure what the electoral vote was, but Nixon very well may have won.  Unlike Gore, Nixon refused to call the election into question.  For the good of the nation he let the count stand, knowing there was likely much corruption in Chicago.  He might have won Illinois, but he didn't push it.

Just last year we found out that Kennedy spent much of his time on a number of medications, serveral of which were Class II narcotics.  Just like Clinton, the public was never notified of his medical record.  Kennedy's record was cleansed for public review.

Kennedy was for all intents an purposes as big or bigger sleaze than Clinton was.  And that's one more reason why I could never be a Democrat.  Kennedy, Carter and Clinton are the absolute disasters the Demorats have given us during the last fifty years.  If this nation ever elects a democrat to the Presidency again, it will be a disgrace on the entire history of this nation.
