Edited on Tue Apr-05-11 11:43 PM by sfpcjock
In fact, if you look up hit piece in Urban Dictionary it says "The Kennedys".

1. Yep, and proof that the History Chanel is garbage
Who was the wonderful man that called the History Chanel out? I supported it by writing and emails, but can't recall now.

2. I could only take about 1 hour of it, but heres what I thought:
..JFK is president, but the first hours are a giant hit piece starring Pop Kennedy and his little boy Jack who fought in WII. Def. a piece of crap.

Papa is a stern controller of Jacks win against Nixon-Yuck.
- Papa didnt have to put 1 voting machine per 300 people in Ohio to win.
- Papa didn't have to have Bobby disqualifying voters in Florida for Jack to win.

Papa says my hand is the same as the hand of God. He probably would not have done so. Papa is portrayed as a blasphemer against the church and religion.

Early on he says you can make people believe anything with money to his sons.

Papa is a big fat appeaser. GOP wants you to think patriot act makes you safe.

Reality: JFK was a very strong anti-communist

The movie really cares about JFK which you can tell from the dramatic music when Papa Joe hears about his sons PT boat being lost.

Pop fixed it so Jack could get in the Navy, thats why he feels guilty when he thinks Jack may have died.
God wont listen to me. Ive sinned too much in the past, Joe tells the priest at confession.

Papa sacrilege with the cross and his wife scene when they hear about Joes death. She says we have to pray for him. Papa raises a Christian cross and says hell never pray again. Bullcrap, even if he felt that way at the time.

JFK: It was accidental I was a war hero. I sank my boat. If he said it it was a joke, not the way the movie portrays it as dark and dastardly. Absurd!

4. So?
If JFK were alive today under another name but pursued the exact same set of policies he pursued then, I'd wager few here would actually support him.

8. Did anyone actually watch it -- I put it on for like 10 mins the first night just
to see if it was going to be garbage -- and it reeked immediately!!

Tonight, tuned in for two minutes -- and off I went!!

Wasn't even worth watching to critique!!
