Even though seeing the actual footage of the fatal blow to President Kennedy's head and recalling the country's grief during that time was very sad, one couldn't come away from that History Channel documentary without feeling a certain amount of animosity towards Robert Kennedy and the "Kennedy people" who surrounded the Kennedys.

The History Channel doesn't lean right or left, but the "royal" attitude of the Kennedys was made very clear throughout the documentary.

As sad as it was for Jacqueline Kennedy who was the epitomy of grace and dignity, one couldn't come away from that documentary without remembering Kennedy's infamous womanizing and infedilty towards her either.

Speaking of royals, I've wanted to post this since last night.
Watching the History Channel's documentary about the 24 hours following the Kennedy assassination, it became painfully apparent that the Kennedys also thought of themselves as "royals" in the White House.
When the Secret Service rushed Johnson to Air Force One after it was confirmed Kennedy was dead, Robert Kennedy and the "Kennedy people" couldn't accept his presence because that was the "Kennedy plane".
Robert Kennedy made the transition as hellish as possible for Johnson refusing to see the country and the continuity of the transition of power coming first over the Kennedy name.
This was mentioned several times during the documentary.
Clinton also acted like he was royalty, not only during his time in the White House, but even after a new president was sworn in. Remember the media making fun of him? Instead of getting on the helicopter and flying away, he was inspecting the troops and having rallies. The media were trying not to laugh when one of them said, "Does he know he's not the president anymore?"
Why is it only Republicans talk about their time in office as temporary and a tremendous sense of responsibility to serve?
The chaos created after the assassination on the part of the Kennedy's was actually appalling.
You're preaching to the choir, dear, we all already know that you people aren't really at home anywhere. For goodness sakes you put on makeup to use the john at the bus station!

Have you ever been to the White House, sweetie? It was intended to be pretty grand, and it sort of succeeded in an eighteenth century sort of way. But, frankly, as a house it's pretty timid and remarkably small. No real chance any modern leader might mistake himself or herself for a king or queen in these times.

Most, if not all, of the GOPigs on this thread are collecting Medicare and Social Security.

Makes their talk of self reliance ring a bit false.

See Ed and Nobraina for evidence of this denial of reality.

They disturbed my peace and trespassed on my property. I should have called the police, maybe they're pretending to be mormons and are fronts for robbers. The robbers do that, go knocking on doors, see if someone answers, if not, then the other one breaks in the back. They cought these guys on camera doing it. You can get a doorbell that rings to your phone and talk to them while they're at your door. Everyone should get these, they're great. No one knows if you're home or not.

FACT: Finland has some of the worst childhood type 1 diabetes ratios in the world.
Scientists are studying the dirt thereof (that's right-the DIRT, as in of the ground!!) for further explanation.
or reasons that no one has been able to identify, Finland has the world’s highest rate of Type 1 diabetes among children. Out of every 100,000 Finnish kids, 64 are diagnosed annually with the disease, in which the body’s immune system declares war on the cells that produce insulin. Type 1 diabetes is usually diagnosed in children, adolescents and young adults.
The disease rate wasn’t always so high. In the 1950s, Finland had less than a quarter of the Type 1 diabetes it has today. Over the past half-century, much of the industrialized world has also seen a proliferation of the once rare disease, along with other autoimmune disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis and celiac disease. Meanwhile, such afflictions remain relatively rare in poorer, less-developed nations.

Carol can't imagine that there'd be chaos after the President of the United States was assassinated and is worried about how they acted! She's fuggn insane. Who knew if Johnson was in on it? Bobby Kennedy got all of the Presidents papers out before Johnson and his gang could have a field day.

Silly to accuse the Kennedy's of what the American Public did. The whole 'Camelot' thing and all were very popular with Americans.
The President is more than a bit like American Royalty. Americans seem to admire Royal Families. See Princess Diana and the new Princess Kate and see the headlines and gossip they generate
Far better than the ones who wished to be dictators:

It is well known the Kennedy family has skeletons in their closet, a shady past and dealing with some very shady people.

John Kennedy was well known for his infedility to his wife and his children.

But it was the mentality of Robert Kennedy who already hated Johnson and refused to even recognize him as the new president, putting himself and his family name above the good of the country that was the most revealing in the History Channel documentary.

I was shocked. And dismayed.

Much as it shines through during, "Swamp People,""Gator Wars," and "Ice Road Truckers," on the same station. Very informative shows, all of them, but they reveal man's innate desire to be adored as special, as a King. Why can't we all be humble?
