President Bush Is No JFK, Thank God
Wednesday, Oct. 18, 2006
Kim Jong-il’s atomic blast has some conservative pundits reminiscing fondly over JFK. His response to Khrushchev and Castro exactly 44 Octobers ago, we’re now given to understand, was positively Pattonesque.
“Now that’s deterrence,” writes Charles Krauthammer in a syndicated column hailing JFK’s handling of the Cuban Missile Crisis. The column calls for “Kennedy-esque clarity” from President Bush and has been variously titled “Follow Kennedy’s Lead to Deter North Korea,” “We could use Kennedy’s Clarity” and “It’s Time for Real Deterrence.”
An article in National Review by Andrew McCarthy says “hear, hear” to Krauthammer. “It would be better for President Bush to emulate the Kennedy strategy,” writes McCarthy, a senior fellow at the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies. The U.S. message to Kim, he stresses should be no-nonsense and “Kennedy-Clear”
“Kennedy reacted brilliantly and well and solved the problem,” gushed Dick Morris to a nodding and receptive Sean Hannity on “Hannity & Colmes” last week.
Let’s hand it to Fidel Castro. During his 47 years in the catbird seat, his cultivation and employment of “useful idiots” can only be described as an art. Lenin coined the term, but Castro became the virtuoso at sniffing them out, flattering them, then flummoxing them.
