What Barack Obama could learn from John F. Kennedy
Everyone knows that John F. Kennedy was a Democrat. Everyone knows he is one of the all-time heroes of the Baby-Boomer generation and of liberals in general.
What few people know is that in December of 1962 he gave this speech.
If you have to, watch it again and really focus on his words. Notice the sharp contrast between his statements and his philosophical beliefs to that of our current President. Notice whether he makes a contrast between rich and poor, small businesses and corporations or whether he discusses the distribution of income, "the top 1%" or anything else that comes even remotely close to the beliefs of Barack Obama.
Before there was Reagan and his view of income taxes, there was John F. Kennedy. A true statesman and economically literate human being.
If you are a Democrat, here is your hero. It is possible to remain a Democrat, but be an economically intelligent one.
