Obama and JFK

The press gushes over Obama while ignoring his inexperience and gaffes. Comparisons to JFK continue.

Soviet Premier Khrushchev supposedly sized up JFK as weak when the two met. This perception emboldened Khrushchev to put Soviet missiles into Cuba, thereby precipitating the Cuban Missile Crisis.

(Speaking of comparisons: the left dismisses or ignores Obama's blunders; Bush loyalists mocked his critics as educated dopes who didn't understand strategery.)
