'The Profile in Courage Award’ Is the Perfect Prize for Barack Obama

So who will be his Ted Sorensen this time?

Jack Cashill March 3, 2017

n Thursday, the John F. Kennedy Library Foundation named Barack Obama the 2017 “Profile in Courage” award honoree, and no one in the major media caught the irony of it.  According to the foundation, the award is given to those “whose actions demonstrate the qualities of politically courageous leadership in the spirit of ‘Profiles in Courage,’ President Kennedy’s 1957 Pulitzer prize-winning book.”

The reader should forget for a minute about Obama’s alleged courage and focus instead on the phrase, “President Kennedy’s 1957 Pulitzer prize-winning book.” This phrase would carry a little more weight, and the award would make a little more sense, if JFK actually wrote Profiles in Courage. He did not.

In a similar vein, and here is where the irony comes into play, Barack Obama has been credibly accused of not writing in any meaningful way his own two books, Dreams from My Father and The Audacity of Hope. The apolitical celebrity biographer Christopher Andersen sends six pages of his 2009 book, Barack and Michelle: Portrait of an American Marriage, explaining how neighborhood editor and terrorist Bill Ayers took over the writing role from a “hopelessly blocked” Obama.

Literary forensic work on Obama’s books supports Andersen’s claim............To Read More.....

My Take - The Kennedy Men have never failed to live up to their heritage - from Joe Senior to those modern Kennedy brats riding the Hollywood/Washington train - trash.  Of course Joe Jr. died a hero in WWII, but is there any reason to think if he'd have lived having been a hero would have made him different?  Well, Jack was a hero in WWII also, and he was just as bad as his father, and since he was President of the United States - maybe more, and Teddy was once expelled from Harvard for cheating, and that was the least of his "many" transgressions. 

Yes - this is the one award Obama received he deserves.
