    At least Clinton shook hands with Kennedy. Obama has no damn business going there as also glad Bush sr the liar(The dork had knowledge back then of the so called Big Event and even recently the jack ass smiled as he spoke of Kennedy’s murder). Even an old memo from Hoover placed Bush in Dallas even though Bush said he was not there and he is even seen by a photo in the area. J.Edgar said it in his memo so that seals it. LBJ’s ex mistress points him out. Ole Nixon knew about it along with the Hunts etc in Dallas. Kennedy listened to 5 star general Doug McArthur’s advice not to wage a war in Vietnam only to have dork LBJ reverse it and have many of our boys slaughtered so he could make a buck from the gun company in S.Vietnam in his wife’s name.

    Kennedy was the last great American president. Maybe Reagan could be included. Carter was a good man I think. Since then, our leadership has been non-existent. All they do is what the rich and powerful want them to do. They are nothing but puppets.

    Kennedy got killed because he didn’t want to fight a useless war in Vietnam. It wasn’t because a lone crazy guy wanted him dead. Ever notice how all the assassins are lone crazy guys? It is all a joke. They never look at the people that profit off of assassinations — namely other politicians and political interests. It is always some crazy guy that somehow has ties back to some government secret program.
