…if only we could joke about something so dreadfully un-funny! But thinking about the days of Camelot when the world last faced a serious nuclear threat, Jack Kennedy came to mind…
Ah, and it seems like only yesterday when the 1988 Vice-Presidential Debate between Senators Lloyd Bentsen and Dan Quayle produced the greatest “DEER IN THE HEADLIGHT” moment in television history! (linked here if you can bear it!) http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=uWXRNySMW4s#!
Quayle~ I have as much experience in the Congress as Jack Kennedy did when he sought the presidency…
Bentsen~ Senator, I served with Jack Kennedy, I knew Jack Kennedy, Jack Kennedy was a friend of mine. Senator, you are no Jack Kennedy. ………………………………….(Thunderous un-ending applause!)
That was pretty much the end of Dan Quayle’s political career! Senator Bentsen passed away in 2006, but I would love to know what his expression might have been for the Senator from Illinois attempting to pass himself off as a Kennedy-like leader? Oh, I can only imagine how he would have had to suppress the belly laugh of all times in response to a radical professor/community organizer daring to compare himself to the man who stood toe-to-toe on the world stage and stared a ruthless Nikita Khrushchev in the eye without blinking…and won!
And yet…here we are. And who do we have in the Oval Office? A “lead from behind” wraith who promised transparency and delivers barely a shadow of himself, relying instead on his swooning media minion to fabricate his…substance.
Now, to be fair, 28 year old Kim Jong-un is no Nikita Khrushchev. But there are two aspects of this crisis that render this point moot. In 1962 the showdown was really only between these two men with one looking to dominate the free world, and the other looking to defend the free world from communist domination. Kennedy spoke for US! The other aspect is horrifying…A) There are way more bad guys on the world stage today thanks to the weakness of this President and his failed policies of appeasement! B) Who the hell does Barack Hussein Obama speak for?
Beginning with Washington, America has been exceptionally blessed with real men when she needed real men most. Kennedy’s character flaws stand out in the high definition rear view mirror of history, but he was also a man of real character and substance who was up to the task of standing up to the bully! It is our own character flaw as a nation to have chosen a President with our WANTS instead of our HEARTS…so now we have an illusion in place of a man. We have a Progressive Hologram in our hour of need. And Holograms are not only unaccountable…they are no threat at all to the world’s thugs and dictators who have seen through the illusion!
Unfortunately, that was the good news! The bad news reveals itself in the form of two terrifying questions. Who is projecting the Hologram? And what is their intention? This much I can promise you…They do not speak for US!
