More Lunacy from the Left

Frank Rich goes all creepy, imagining the assassination of Barack Obama, in comparing him to JFK.

No president is completely safe from a determined lone gunman. There was plenty of hate for George W. Bush and probably any number of crackpots who would've taken a shot at him if they'd had the chance.

Besides, it wasn't hate that killed JFK. It was Lee Harvey Oswald, a determined pro-Castro socialist. If Rich is right, we should be keeping a watchful eye on Michael Moore.


UPDATE: From a piece by the Manhattan Institute's James Piereson:
In the latest effort to recycle the Camelot myths, Frank Rich has published a delusional article in New York Magazine under the title, "What Killed JFK: The Hate That Ended His Presidency is Eerily Familiar" in which he draws a straight line from Kennedy's assassination to imagined threats against President Obama arising from conservatives and the tea party movement. The occasion for Mr. Rich's ruminations is a review of several recently published books about President Kennedy and the assassination, including one by Stephen King in which the novelest dispatches a time traveller on a mission to intercept Oswald before he can commit his deed so that history might be redirected on a more hopeful path. Mr. King, however is a writer of fiction and thus entitled to invent his facts. Mr. Rich, as a journalist, does not have the same license.
Like I said, lunacy and dishonest lunacy to boot.

Are you kidding me with this? There isn't a single quote in here from rich so you don't know if this was taken out of context or where this was supposedly said. Was it in an article rich wrote or some tv or radio interview. If the delco times wants to link to this crappy unsourced work they will lose my business.

The link works. And the headline captures the creepiness;

"What Killed JFK
The hate that ended his presidency is eerily familiar."
