Comments on: Kennedy’s “Dr. Feelgood” http://blogs.reuters.com/berlin1961/2011/05/26/kennedys-dr-feelgood/ Kennedy, Khrushchev and the most dangerous place on Earth Wed, 31 Oct 2012 08:23:24 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: D0ugR1ch http://blogs.reuters.com/berlin1961/2011/05/26/kennedys-dr-feelgood/#comment-46 Wed, 01 Jun 2011 20:50:14 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/berlin1961/?p=114#comment-46 From Kennedy’s remark about Khruschev to a reporter, “he savaged me” to GWB “Great job Brownie”. How far we have fallen in the realm of candor. Let’s not forget Clinton, “I did not have sex with that woman”. Kennedy was a great president, perhaps the last and his brother Robert would have been even more so. Yes, they made mistakes and had faults but their love of country, dread of Eisenhower’s “military industrial complex”, and empathy for those less fortunate, created an administration that truly changed the course, albeit briefly.

I guess he must have over looked that JFK was a drugged up zombie as he’s portrayed in this dubious work. But JFK apparently concealed, his drug problem, pretty well in all his press conferences, live on TV before a national audience. JFK held more of those conferences than any other after him. A sure sign he was hiding something. Max Jacobson, or “Dr. Feelgood” as the media smeared him was beloved by his patients. They fought of efforts by other doctors to pull his license. Many said he was the only physician who actually helped them with their pain and allowed them to function. Maybe they should find out what prescribed drugs JFK allegedly took and give them to all the US Presidents. Perhaps then this work would have some actual value, otherwise it’s of little value except as yet another shot of character assassination.

Kennedy is dead and buried. A worse danger than a womanizing President is now stalking our Country. A fool that negates all that we stand for and belittles our accomplishments by kow towing to forces we would better face and defeat head on.

Why don’t you do a book on the drug use of all the Presidents. Maybe start with Obusha and GW. Cocaine use at the very least. The Republic died on Nov.23, 1963.
