Â President Barack Hussein Obama may trample on the Constitution, invoke theÂ name of Jesus Christ to further his re-election, and deny Catholics religious freedomÂ with Obamacare–and that’s only in the last week–but, to his credit, has notÂ turned the White House into a whorehouse unlike some of his fellow Democrats.Â
Lyndon BainesÂ Johnson was a noted womanizer and James Earl Carter admitted toÂ lusting in his heart but apparentlyÂ neither used the executive mansion as a bawdy house.Â William Jefferson Clinton and John Fitzgerald Kennedy did.Â
Of course, Clinton’s sexual abandon and paramours wereÂ legendary prior to hisÂ winning election in 1992, even ifÂ his mainstream media chose to conceal them from the public.Â His trysts that stained the Oval Office carpet, Monica Lewinsky’s famous blue dress, and the dignity of the presidency could almost have been expected.Â
Kennedy was known as a lady’s man in Washington before he became America’s 35th president.Â However, his various assignations with Marilyn Monroe and other womenÂ were not revealed until wellÂ after his assassination, a delay once againÂ attritutable to the liberal MSM covering for one of their own.Â
Â The truth will eventually out and Mimi Beardsley Alford has now outed Jack as a seducer of teenagers, a drug pusher, and a pimp, all harsh descriptions, all confirmed by Alford’s new tell-all, Once Upon a Secret: My Secret Affair with JFK.Â Â Â Â Â Â Â
Such belated revelations are often as trashy as they are fictional and Mrs. Alford’s motivations in publishing her secretÂ of half a century must be called into question considering the embarrassment it has to causeÂ for her children and grandchildren.Â Â
Who knows?Â She may need the money, sheÂ may need to clear her aging conscience, she may still be hurting fromÂ Jack’s ultimate rejection fifty yearsÂ back, she may want revenge, or she may simply be trying to rectifyÂ the historical record that JFK was a family man.Â
No matter what she says,Â Mrs. Alford’s most validÂ defense for herÂ memoir should be that she was a 19 year old White House intern and virginÂ in 1962.Â She was seduced and degraded byÂ a 45 year oldÂ man who happened to be the President of the United States and one of the most powerful men on the planet.Â
I will leave the decision to the reader to read the smarmy details provided in Once Upon a Secret: My Secret Affair with JFK.Â Just the outline of Mrs. Alford’s White House experiences should be a sufficiency.
According toÂ her memoir, Jack lured Miss BeardsleyÂ into First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy’s bedroom.Â That effort worked.Â He plied her with booze.Â She willingly indulged.Â HeÂ offered her to his buddy,Â Dave Powers, to relieve hisÂ stress, which she did.Â HeÂ suggested she do the same forÂ Teddy Kennedy, which she refused to do.Â He triedÂ to get her to take pain drugs prescribed for him, which she also refused.Â
No one is saying Republicans are all sacrosanct though any rational political observer has to concede that Democrats have a serious issue with keeping their pants on and, in JFK’s case, sharingÂ their conquests and drugs with friends and relatives.Â
If I had my druthers, I’d sooner Obama be a lecher and drug pusher thanÂ what he is.
