What politician speaks like this today?

None of them - we are going to do something not because it easy but because it is hard & we can do it!
& we did.

Quick hit - couple minutes not the entire speech.

haha
some discovery or history channel thing was on and Kennedy was talking. It was some commercial for a show. I looked at my girl and said "I wish we had a president who talked like that now."

This was about 20 minutes ago.

Here is the other one - what politician would call out the CIA today?

"There is little value in insuring the survival of our nation if our traditions don't survive with it!"
Think about it as it pertains today.

I can listen to his speech and still feel inspired by it. I can only imagine what it felt like to be there.

We could have that again if we had someone in office worthy to lead that took the time to instill in the public that they did matter, that we are still capable of great things, and they expect no less. What we have now is a huge loss of hope in my opinion. People have stopped trying. They are tired of being beat down and shafted by a system they are supposed to trust in.

The loss of hope and the belief that better days are a. is a tragedy that I don't think we have seen the full ramifications of yet.

A speech that inspires hope, pride, and motivation 50 years later is a speech worth listening to 50 years later.

Thanks for posting it.

I think there's been a great shift in the quality of our politicians. They are rarely the deep thinkers and hypnotic orators of yesteryear. They depend on spin doctors and teleprompters to address the masses, masses they seem to think are quite dense. Maybe the masses are that dense as there certainly does seem to be a "dumbing down" of the general population. Still I do not appreciate being treated like a child by some politician with the IQ of a bush(snark).

I can't speak for everyone but I would say no. I don't.

I find myself getting angry because we struggle to make it day to day. We live right, we help people, we try to be good parents, we rely on ourselves, etc. etc. and it seems we can never get too far a.. I watch those in power lie, cheat, steal, walk on the folks, etc. and they are rolling in the good life. I would even guess that people have gone the way they have because they are so tired of seeing evil get a.. They make it seem that all the wrong things are rewarded so if one is inspired then I would say they are probably inspired to leave Mr./Mrs. Niceguy behind them and stop caring about anything other than their own wants and needs.

It's sad that it has gotten the way it has. When people give up.... they take what they would have contributed to the world with them into despair. Who knows how that could/would have changed the world?

Cant be too careful, too good gets you shot.

We now live in a "yes" world of politics where you only have to say yes to everything you dont have to actually do any of it. Corporate America controls the votes and the people and the system a good politician doesnt stand a chance.

I dont know if thats true exactly, we have good speakers. I mean compared bush and Obama and tell me thats not a public speaker upgrade.

Sure its more bull# than the last but thats what politics is now, they get handed a speech and they read it as well as they can. Job done, meet at the white house for tea and medals.

Obviously i have a obstructed view being from the UK, but i for one was very unhappy to hear that one of Obamas big claims was to shut Guantanamo down but VERY shortly after he gets in office he says "its complicated" like it was pre-written - and now he says hes pledging to have another go.


The Guantanamo facility continues to drain our resources and harm our standing in the world


Its still running, and the word still thinks you [USA] guys suck for it and its still costing you millions.

On the subject of guantanamo....
6 Yrs In Guantanamo

There are people in guantanamo that were cleared for release 6 yrs ago, but for some completely unknown reason, they are still there.

Guantanamo Prisoner Makes 6hr Video Plea for Freedom

There is a marked difference in the quality of the politicians from then and the politicians of today.
Or maybe they have always been the same, but with the abundance of information technology, they cannot fool us so easily these days.

Kennedy wouldn't be able to do that today.
He knew how to appeal to personal pride and integrity in the minds of the citizens.

There aren't many people in the USA who understand those concepts any more.

That's why politicians now rely on a simple precept..."I'll screw the other guy and give you free stuff."
