All excerpts from President John F. Kennedy's Inaugural Address, January 20, 1961.
"...the same revolutionary beliefs for which our forebearers fought are still at issue around the globe-the belief that the rights of man come not from the generosity of the state, but from the hand of God."
Can you believe this statement from an American President? Haven't the liberals told us that rights are whatever the government says they are?
"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."
Compare that statement to the embarrassment of Barack Obama at West Point where he basically said, the Calvary is comin' but we ain't stayin' long.
"Let all our neighbors know that we shall join with them to oppose aggression or subversion anywhere in the Americas. And let every other power know that this Hemisphere intends to remain the master of its own house."
What a statement! Then we remember Barack Hussein Obama, chumming it up with Hugo Chavez, and sitting through an hour long berating of America by Daniel Ortega.
"For only when our arms are sufficient beyond doubt can we be certain beyond doubt that they will never be employed."
What did Barack Obama say? In 2008, at Purdue University, Obama said that adhering to nonproliferation treaties would put pressure on nations such as North Korea and Iran. Does Obama really believe that Mahmound Ahmadinejad and Kim Jong Il will look at the USA adhering to those treaties and be embarrassed into getting rid of their nuclear programs?
"In your hands, my fellow citizens, more than in mine, will rest the final success or failure of our course."
"Ask not what your country can do for you-ask what you can do for your country."
Wasn't that JFK a silly silly boy? Compare his statements to Obama and the liberals today as they give us TARP, Stimulus (Democrat Party Slush Fund for payoffs to Unions and Big City Mayors), a three trillion dollar health care takeover bill, Cap and Tax, twenty five million Americans on food stamps, and Obama's narcissistic messiah complex.
"My fellow citizens of the world: ask not what America will do for you, but what together we can do for the freedom of man."
There he goes again, talking about freedom, while our current President plots with Pelosi and Reid to steal freedoms from us and future generations. While Obama bows to dictators and Communists, and apologizes to any thug that will give him an audience.
What would John Fitzgerald Kennedy think about Barack Obama? Would today's Democrat Party elect JFK?
