As we honor President John F. Kennedy today, Bob Rucho tarnishes JFK's memory by repeating the currently fashionable right-wing talking point that JFK was actually a conservative -- but Bob goes so far as to say that JFK would have founded the tea party.
JFK could have been the founder and leader of the Tea Party. The real democrat party has been hijacked.

Let's just say that Bob was thoroughly routed in this Twitter war.
Bob might have missed this JFK quote:
“If by a "Liberal" they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people-their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights and their civil liberties-someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a "Liberal", then I'm proud to say I'm a "Liberal.”
