    Read some of JFKs speeches, after he was Pres, or even when he was running.
    No way you will here a D say those things today. JFK was to the right of many Rs currently in office.
    One could today run as a conservative R, by repeating JFK speeches, verbatim.

    After JFK assassination, Ted Kennedy tried very hard to get the nomination for the 64 election, and was furious he didn't get it. He subsequently went far left, and dragged a lot of the Ds with him, as the decades went on.

    In a sense, JFK was "pressed" into the Cuban missile crisis event and wasn't something he planned. In a sense, he got lucky because Kruschev blinked.

    However, I've read some of Reagan's earlier writings and even before he considered running for president, he had something of a plan to confront the Russians and weaken them. So, his "action" was more than just a speech.

    LBJ lead the way downward when he signed the Bill that created the "Great Society." Since LBJ we've steadily gone downhill.
    I remember when JFK was killed, I was working on "Cherry Hill" beside Tinker AFB when it happened. JFK wasn't perfect but he was an American and stood for our values-unike more recent Democrats that bought the office.
