To preface this thread, I've been alive since before the Kennedy assassination, two years in fact. My mother was very intelligent and grew up with the
Kennedy's in her era. She in fact was rather obsessed with them while I was growing up.
I am Gen X, born in 1964...so not too big of an age difference...and yes, even though JFK was dead by my birth, the parents of that generation never
forgot or forgave.
My Dad was was 39 when Kennedy was elected and JFK could not have had a more ardent supporter - he loved the guy - I will say that my maiden name was
Kennedy, so he kinda had to -ha!
Daddy was a WWII vet, 2nd Marine Corps Division and served in the South Pacific (yeah Tarawa), so, he was something of a Billy Bob bada**, but bring
up JFK and he would get a tear in the eye every time.
After JFK was assassinated, Dad became an ARCH conservative. I think that the whole JFK thing made many of that generation question all of government
and the sacrifices they gave in service. It basically broke their hearts.
Having grown up in that environment, I totally get your POV.
, Obama is either very smart
or very stupid
, and that is the conspiracy, IMHO. (but hey, he is out on the links in Palm
Springs this weekend while the rest of us FRET about Rome Burning...so there is your answer!)
