1. I will give some credit

to Eisenhower, it was under his administration that NASA was started. JFK took office on January 20, 1961, and Alan Shepard flew the first Mercury mission on May 5, 1961. Much of the plan that would take us to the moon was formulated before Kennedy took office.

He certainly gets credit for prioritizing it.
