    I'm not old enough to remember what it was like when they were in the White House.

    Yes. In the way counts most. What he can do for the country. He has real vision and political balls of steel. John McCain lost his maverick appeal as soon as he sold out to his agents of intolerance.

    The only reason his name and JFK would be linked in my mind is all the media hype trying to tell us all that yes we all DO think Obama is just like JFK.

    It's truly a pricelessly blunt, like a sledgehammer media ploy.

    Edit: Sass is exactly right, Republicans do it too, but I am not sure how that makes the idea that there is a cult of personality surrounding Obama any less valid.

    Ron Paul, for example, was very popular, but it wasn't a cult of personality. It was based entirely on his positions on issues. I estimate that Obama supporters on the board have, for the most part, real reasons for preferring him, but out there in America, I'll bet you dollars to donuts most people couldn't tell you his stance on anything. They just like him.

    Hmm, I wonder. Imagine for a moment President Obama gets elected. President Obama is popular and achieves a lot. In 30 years, another charismatic candidate comes along. Would people ask the same question? Is this guy another Barack Obama? Would you make the same argument then?

    Yes, see my first post in this thread. I don't know if you're aware of this, but JFK was a great speaker, and a bit of a **** sandwich.

    The way the news describes things nothing is new or original. Everything is just the latest version of some older thing. Like come kind of cyclical fatalism, this has all happened before and will all happen again.
