John F. Kennedy and Barack H. Obama

"Ask not what you Country can do for you,
but what you can do for your
John F. Kennedy

We have all read or heard the above quote from John Kennedy, it was perhaps his best know.  Many have compared Obama with Kennedy and elevated him to that status in the nations history.  Let me make this clear, Barack Obama is no John Kennedy.  I lived through the Kennedy years and although no fan, Kennedy was a true American hero and his beliefs were totally opposite to the man who now sits in the Oval Office.  Kennedy loved this country and wanted to bring out the best in every man, while Obama's love for the country is at the least questionable and instead of uniting he, by every action is dividing the people of this great nation.
Obama reflects the views of the far left wing of the National Democratic Party which in no way resembles the Democratic Party of John Kennedy.  Today's Democrats have adopted an almost socialistic agenda, something that John Kennedy would have despised.  Obama's answer to Kennedy would be:
Ask not what you can do for your Country,
but what your Country can do for you.
The thinking of Barack H. Obama

If I might be so bold, Obama's view might be...

"Ask not what you can do to your government, ask what your government can do to you."

Government does fit better for sure. Just wanted to use "country" as Kennedy did.

Off subject, but is my site loading slow. I made some changes yesterday to try and improve the loading time.

Your site seems fine Ron. As for Obama? Not so much.....

I think that JFK would be shocked to see where his party has gone. It certainly isn't the same party that he belonged to. As Matt stated, Barack Obama's view is 180 degrees different than JFK's.

By today's standards, Kennedy would be a conservative. I'm so tired of talking about that other guy ... so I won't.
