Matthews to sexually-assaulted JFK intern: Shut up
Daily Caller ^ | 2.21.12 | Michelle Fields

Posted on 02/21/2012 7:00:07 AM PST by newheart

MSNBC host Chris Matthews told The Daily Caller that he would still consider John F. Kennedy a hero and still would have written his new book “Jack Kennedy: Elusive Hero” if his daughter had been one-time White House intern Mimi Alford.

Alford recently wrote “Once Upon a Secret: My Affair with President John F. Kennedy and Its Aftermath” about an affair she says started when she was 19 years old. In the book she claims Kennedy took her virginity and then asked her to perform oral sex on his aides.

TheDC caught up with Matthews on Monday at Ford’s Theatre in Washington, D.C., and asked if he would still revere Kennedy if his daughter, or perhaps a close friend, experienced what Alford had.

If Mimi Alford had spoken up while Kennedy was still in office, this year her family would be observing the 50th anniversary of her death.

The headline is a lie. Not in the video either.

We need not become like liberals.

I don't think it is too much of a stretch to assume the author was reading between the lines based on Matthews' dismissive assertion that he didn't really know why she bothered to write the book.

But that wasn't my real point anyway. Instead I was amused by the ever prescient Matthews arguing that her book (Amazon Best Seller rank: 41) would not sell, while his (Amazon Best Seller ranking: 995) supposedly would do better.

You forgot to include the fact that JFK changed the landing site from the City of Trinidad to the Bay of Pigs, dooming the plan even before the air cover was pulled:

I recently learned that while my father was in the Army at this time, they were all told to grab their gear and live ammo and get on a plane. The flew around for several hours before they landed back at the same base. He didn’t know what was going on until later. The CO was instructed not to tell them anything while they were on the plane.

You’re right and I did. I also should have made it clear I was talking about air cover ON the beach which was promised to the insurgents up until they were actually on the beach. Kennedy sentenced those men to death and knew he was doing it when he did it.

“It’s one of the conundrums of having a hero like Kennedy.”

Find a more heroic hero, Chris.

What gives with this Matthews guy anyway? Why does he keep getting crushes on men--and very mediocre men at that?

There are heroic people in the world--men, women, and children--but John Kennedy was not one of them.

When I was a boy--7 or 8 years old--Tarzan was my hero. But when I became a man I put away childish things. Tarzan was fiction. So is the John Kennedy that Chris Matthews seems to idolize.

Matthews is stuck in a time warp. He and Clinton are typical of those who came of age in the “Kennedy Era.” Matthews joined Kennedy’s glamorous Peace Corps; Clinton followed a political career. They are still star struck, 50 years later, and can’t get over it.

Let’s not forget either that PT-109 was lost to gross incompetence.

I am as tired of the Kennedy hagiography as anyone, but none of his fellow PT commanders nor any serious historian was critical of Kennedy's tactics during the engagement in which PT-109 was lost. Running your engines at night in a PT boat causes bioilluminescence, which paints a great big target sign for any roaming Jap aircraft.

If you want to criticize anyone, why not the other PT commanders who failed to look for survivors after the collision, which was clearly indicated by flames from PT-109 and the loss of radio contact?

The kennedys were a bunch of sickos sharing and trading women around and JFK’s wife was a weak, pathetic woman.

When Brigade 2506’s air instructors (Alabama ANG pilots based in Nicaragua) discovered that their air cover had been yanked, and how the men they had helped train were faring on the beach, they took off—without authorization from DC—to provide air support on their own.

Four of them were shot down, one apparently dying in a gun battle with Cuban ground forces. Their families weren’t told what had happened to them for decades.

Tameichi Hara’s description of the PT-109 incident, in his autobiography “Japanese Destroyer Captain”, is somewhat less than heroic.
