Well I was thinking JFK guys :)No, I was just musing on the things that bother me about Democrats and Republicans and realized I would have been a decent Democrat (not the Dixiecrat wing) several decades ago.
So you would have pushed the notion of a missile gap? Note that Kennedy's claims along these lines were a significant reason (along with other things like the Bay of Pigs invasion) why the Soviets thought that Kennedy was a militarist nut and is much of the reason behind the Soviet desire to put missiles in Cuba, thus lead to the Cuban Missile Crisis. Kennedy did a bunch of quite foolish things during his political career.
