A McCain supporter told me today that JFK blundered relations with Russia so badly that it resulted in Nikita Khruschev building the Berlin Wall and precipitated the Cuban Missile Crisis -- JFK successfully called K's bluff on Cuba, but it was a near thing. Apparently this incident makes Kennedy an example of a president as bad as George W. Bush. I can't see how a well-intentioned diplomatic blunder early in office is remotely equivalent to the repeated errors of judgment against the advice of the most qualified advisors, not to mention the policy of ongoing diplomatic blundering known as the Bush Doctrine and Bush's downright criminal behavior on many fronts. --Woozle 23:33, 23 October 2008 (UTC)
