And both will vote Democratic in Chicago.

If JFK was a conservative, then Nixon was a communist.

If Kennedy was so conservative, why does Bill O'Reilly get such a murder-boner covering his death?

And, how did conservatives view Kennedy at the time? Oh, right...

Wow. 50 years later and the conservatives are still using the same verbiage. You'd think they would update their vocabulary a bit.

Right down to the made up b.s. personal details. He was only married to Jackie, and had never been divorced.

The funny thing is they were so focused on their own bs narrative they completely missed the truth that he was having pot-fueled group sex in the Oval Office coat room with the entire White House steno pool.

Jesus was conservative in how one should live one's life but liberal in how one should approach others' lives. He was conservative on personal morality but liberal in social obligation morality. In other words, Jesus is a classic establishment Democrat.

Yes, because the Democrats would never elect a moderate.  Except for Bill Clinton, Barack Obama and maybe Hillary Clinton.

That's incredible. Just shows you that things never really change, just back then it was crazy people with a printing press, and now those same people are getting interviews on national television and elected to congress.

Hey, did you know both sides are equally bad?  That's what I hear.

Strange then that we're forced to pick sides and they seem so hell bent on winning, isn't it?

Everyone and everything good is conservative! Everyone and everything bad is liberal! I don't have a functioning brain, since I had it surgically replaced with a potato-powered AM radio!

Maybe, subby, but Clinton is juuussst right, and we'll vote for his cuckolded wife in 2016 if for nothing else than to enrage conservatives over Bill being back in the White House.

And that President Obama is a communist. Or a fascist (who are also liberals), depending on the direction of the breeze and whether or not the saw a bird on Tuesday.
 
2013-11-18 01:11:04 PM  
Anyone that thinks the Democrats are "liberal" is a farking moron.  Obama and Clinton were both center-right presidents.

I wish we had an actual liberal to vote for.

Beyond advocating a tax cut that was passed under Johnson, getting involved in Vietnam, and pursuing some ill-advised Castro assassination attempts, what policies did JFK put into place or at the very least advocate that would have liberals up in arms today? Supporting the civil rights movement? Forming the Peace Corps? Getting a Nuclear Test Ban Treaty put into place? Expanding the space program? Pursuing the steel industry for collusion (which was probably a terrible policy all things considered, but definitely seems more like something modern day liberals would cheer for than conservatives.)

Also that FDR was the worst President ever, Nixon was a liberal, and Dubya didn't exist.

Just say no to Briebart, ThinkProgress, AmericanThinker and other paid provocateur sites.

That being said, I just came here to give a +2 Internets to subby for the headline. Made me laugh.

Because People in power are Stupid: JFK was one of eight U.S. presidents to "have been lifetime members [of the NRA]."

If I remember correctly, GHW Bush was a lifetime member. I say "was" because somewhere along the line, he wrote them a letter telling them they were batshiat crazy and he wanted out.

I know that no one seriously posts from Breitfart in good faith to its material, but I chuckled a little at the headline. People really freak out about the voting dead, huh?

To be fair, iirc his tax cut (which conservatives love to uphold as the standard that means all taxes should be cut) was cutting the top rates from a level that would make most modern American liberals balk.

But I may be recalling that poorly.
 
2013-11-18 01:40:37 PM  
Except the GOP spends every Presidential election trying to convince its base that its nominee is the "next Ronald Reagan."  When was the last time a Democratic candidate was described as the "next Kennedy" (even indirectly, as a direct comparison might be unseemly)?

Let's ask conservatives if they want to go back to the tax rates he cut them to.

Obama was compared to Kennedy quite a bit during his European tour just before the '08 election.  Mostly because no US politician had drawn crowds like that in Berlin since.  At least, crowds that weren't waving signs protesting him.

When tyranny comes to America, the NRA will not form militias to shoot down the black helicopters.  There won't be any black helicopters.  There will be fireworks and parades and Sousa marches, and the NRA will call it Freedom and chant the slogans when the Leader tells them to.

BunkoSquad: These are the same shiatheads who have convinced themselves that both MLK and Jesus were conservative.


JFK, and actually pretty much any US politician that started their career in the 1960s or earlier, would pretty much be disqualified from the political left on grounds of using religion to justify almost literally every policy they proposed in one way or another.

Political priorities change, and the ancillary associations of Left and Right alter pretty significantly given a few decades.  Take any politician heavily invested in a party in one decade, add or subtract 2-3 decades, and they'll be completely orthogonal to that party if not actively opposed.  The 20th century didn't invent ideological drift in democracies.

From ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country....to.....yeah sit at home, smoke weed, drink beer, hell go to the strip club and use your EBT there, we will take care of you with our safety net.


Jeez...how could you go wrong by telling people make as many mistakes and work as little as possible because their will always be someone who works that we can tax so we can safety net you.....

By asking his base what they can do for their country.
