Kennedy wasn’t so good at transparency either. And, if anything, he was more reckless in foreign policy than his rich-kid, daddy’s boy successor, George W. Bush
Andrew Sullivan, JFK to GWB?
Rich-kid? Daddy’s boy? Bush? Ok, but let’s not forget Kennedy either. Kennedy’s grandfather was a three-term member of Congress and a mayor of Boston. His father went to Havard, had been estimated by Fortune magazine as being somewhere between the 9th and the 16th richest person in the US and had been the US Ambassador to the UK. JFK himself went to the LSE, Princeton and Havard. As for being a daddy’s boy, his brother
Joe was killed in World War II, making John next in line to fulfill his father’s political ambitions.
Just so we don’t forget.
