Obama Exploits JFK

Barack Obama has again shown his approgant true colors. He is exploiting the image of John F Kennedy in a tv ad paid for by his campaign.
Lets point out one fact here to start. John F Kennedy has not endorsed Barack Obama. Regardless of what Kennedy family members have have, it is out of bounds for Obama to use JFK's image to further his political ambition. Would he do this if Jackie were still alive?
Lets look at John F Kennedy a bit further. Kennedy was more than optimism and hope. Kennedy earned his lasting legacy through deeds.
Jack Kennedy was a war hero who risked his life in battle to save the lives of others. Obama can make no such claim.
Jack Kennedy persued civil rights legislation at a time when it was not popular in his party and was not politically helpful. That took courage. Obama has shown no such courage as his 'present' votes in the IL Senate illustrate. Obama couldn't even vote NO on a lw banning sex shops within 500 feet of schools.
Jack Kennedy stared down the Soviet Union and averted a war during the Cuban Missle Crisis. What has Obama done that even comes close? Nothing.
Barack Obama is no John F Kennedy. If Lloyd Bentson was here today I would love to hear his take on the matter.
Barack Obama should pull his ad that uses the images of JFK. It is arrogant. It is insulting. It is shameless.
