The Missing Democrat
The Democrat Convention has featured all manner of Democrats this week. Most of them have been retreads. They featured the man who was a bad President, Bill Clinton. They featured the man who, until Obama was the worst President in American history, Jimmy Carter. They even honored the Democrat who should have been sent to prison, Ted Kennedy.
Yet there was one notable Democrat President who was completely forgotten.
Who is it and why was he forgotten?
It was John F. Kennedy. Yes, the Democrats had to slobber all over the memory of Ted Kennedy, who left a woman to drown in his car. They had John F. Kennedy’s daughter as a speaker, but no mention of the last patriotic Democrat President.
If you go back and read what John Kennedy wrote back in the day, it is shocking how conservative he was.
If you read or listen to John Kennedy’s inaugural address, you realize how out of touch today’s Democrats are with reality.
Kennedy uttered these famous words: “ Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, in order to assure the survival and the success of liberty.”
Does anyone believe Barack Obama would utter those words today?
Does anyone think Barack Obama believes in the success or even survival of liberty?
He will not bear any burden or pay any price in the cause of liberty. He will sell out our friends and encourage our enemies. For Barack Obama, just the opposite is true. He will support no friend and help any foe in the battle for liberty.
Obama’s greatest triumph has been the Islamist Spring. In the Middle East, anti-American regimes have replaced regimes that were either allied to us or at least were no longer causing trouble.
Anyone else remember John F. Kennedy’s finest moment? It was his speech in 1962 where he said, “We choose to go to the moon. We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too.”
Does anyone think Barack Obama has the character to utter any words like that?
This is the same guy who has gutted our manned space program and told his NASA director that NASA’s mission was to make Muslims feel good about their contributions to science.
John Kennedy was the last patriotic Democrat. Why aren’t the Democrats of today invoking his memory? With the passing of Neil Armstrong, we remember the greatness of the 60’s when we put a man on the moon and returned him safely. We put Neil Armstrong on the moon because John F. Kennedy believed in the greatness of America. We put a man on the moon because John F. Kennedy gave us that vision.
Conservatives admire John F. Kennedy. He was a great American and that is why Democrats do not revere him today. John Kennedy appealed to America’s greatness and Barack Obama wants to see America weak and defenseless. Today’s Democrats want to see America as just another insignificant country in a sea of nations.
The reason you do not see today’s Democrats appealing to the memory of John F. Kennedy is because he reminds them of everything they no longer are.
He reminds them, they are no longer real Americans.
