The true death of John F. Kennedy

As long as our ideas live on, in some way so do we.

Here’s is one of John F. Kennedy’s most famous statements:  “Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country.”

Obama won the 2012 election by turning that idea upside down.  Rather than appealing to the greater good of all Americans, he won by promising select coalitions (minorities, women, gays, unions) government goodies, ostensibly at no cost to them.

The party of John F. Kennedy just killed him dead.

    I ran across this quote concerning Obama’s victory speech last night.  I thought it was worth sharing.

    From:
    http://news.investors.com/politics-andrew-malcolm/110712-632498-mitt-romney-speech-obama-speech-chris-christie-fail.htm?p=full

    “Romney in 703 words graciously admitted his loss. He said the word “America” five times, the word “pray” three times and the words “Thank you” 21 times.
    The Real Good Talker, who’s never seen anything he couldn’t throw a speech at, took 2,163 words to claim victory in what is traditionally a moment to call for unity and healing after a divisive campaign.
    The victorious Chicagoan, who promised before the last election to end Washington’s partisan bitterness, strangely uttered the word “fight” five times and “thank you” but seven times. He spoke the word “unify” zero times, “unity” zero times, “heal” zero times and “pray” zero times.
    He did, however, manage to mention himself 27 times.

    Gird your loins!  ;-)  Seriously, don’t be fooled about what is coming.
