Good God. I won't read aanything from this LN jerk and the last sentence of this review shows how ignorant he is as well. JFK was NOTHING like the "current occupant of the White House".

Matthews was forced, at the price of his paycheck, to ridicule "conspiracy theorists" as having a psychological need to explain away the tragedy of Kennedy's death by means of imaginary plots. You can take him and his book and deposit them in the dung-heap of Kennedy Assassination dishonor, along with the rest of them...

Elsewhere on the net is a radio interview of Chris Matthews by Larry Elder in which the aggressive radio host has the pudgy drunk on the ropes.

A note to Chris Matthews:

Lloyd Bentsen was able to say to Dan Quayle, "Jack Kennedy was a friend of mine. Senator, you're no Jack Kennedy."

We would say, Chris Matthews, you presume to know how Jack Kennedy lived. We know to a moral certainty how and why he died, which is infinitely more important.

Chris Matthews would presume to laud JFK while denying the most significant indicator of the 35th president's danger to the military-industrial complex.

Matthews' ridicule of those who know JFK to have been the victim of a conspiracy/crossfire/coverup/coup is his complete rejection of the martyred president's significance.

To discuss Kennedy's life without referring to his murder is to not merely miss the point, but to pervert history by murdering his principles.

As to the reviewer's gushing:

The last chapters of the book focus on Kennedy as president, with edge-of-the-seat recounting of the Bay of Pigs disaster and Cuban missile crisis. But what really struck me was how a cool, detached Kennedy reminded me of the current occupant of the White House.

Must be referring to the group in the situation room as the SEAL team allegedly raided Osama's compound in Pakistan.

The little Boy-King dragged in from the golf course and given a jacket, told to look intently at the blank screen.

Yeah, that's really like keeping the U.S. generals on one side and the Soviet generals on the other and the missiles in the silos.

JFK was Seven Days in May. Obama is Felinni's Satyricon (1969).

'tis like a whiff of oxygen to those caught drowning in a sea of ignorance and apathy.
