    I could come up with some people lower than Nixon, Kennedy, and even Clinton. Nicolae/Elena Ceaucescu, Ethipoean commie Mengistu Haile Mariam, and Muhammar Qadaffi come to mind.
    My biggest been with Nixon was that he abetted the sellout of S. Vietnam. Kissinger did the actual selling out, and that amoral weasel thought that we should fight the Cold War with eternal truce (“detente”) and worthless treaties. Watergate – which was all about operatives of one political party spying on another – pales in comparison.
    So what’s wrong with Joe Kennedy, other than his pro-Nazi sympathies and getting his youngest son interested in politics?
