Now the state of the country when they took office were very different- JFK taking office as America was starting to turn towards an Inward-Looking age and BHO taking office as America was grabbed and thrown into an Outward-Looking age, but as for personalities they seem similar.
    JFKs foolish naiveté' resulted in the Bay of Pigs fiasco, almost got us into a nuclear confrontation with the Soviet Union and last, but never least, got us involved in Vietnam.

    Let us hope and pray Obama will not do the same. Fortunately we do not have super powers to contend with as we do lunatics in wealthy ME nations with more money than brains.

    JFK was also at least a Conservative; something Obama cannot be accused of by any stretch and told the citizens “ask not what your country can do for you - ask what you can do for your country.” In Obamaland, it is “I the messiah know best what is good for the country and only I can lead us to the land of welfare, illegal immigration, vast debt, vast unemployment, vast deficits and negative GDP; but at least I cared!”

    My point was that it is way to early in Obama's Presidency to compare him to any other President. He took office facing some dire emergencies that have consumed much of his attention to this point, & he has not had enough "Breathing Space" to really see what his proffered priorities will be & how he will steer his Presidency.

    He seems like a more restrained version of FDR.

    Tongue in cheek point taken. However, suggesting that the nine months we have just witnessed is not sufficient to point out the deficiencies of this Administration requires the willing suspension of disbelief; IN MY opinion of course!

    If these were normal times I might agree with you to a point. But these are not normal times & Obama has been so focused on keeping us out of another great depression & trying to figure out how to extricate us from 2 quagmires we call wars, I don't think it fair yet to give him a final grade.

    What makes you think JFK was a conservative? I'd love to see your revisionist history here.
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).
