  • Kenedy : His religion

    Kenedy : His religion
    There was a controversy about Kenedy because he was catholic, people thought that he might add catholic taught ideas into his political decisions. Kenedy answered that question with a speech stating basically that he would not be mixing religion the way he makes political decisions. I suppose though that some critics may have other thoughts about that.

    Kennedy's New Frontier Legislation.
    "[W]e stand today on the edge of a New Frontier -— the frontier of 1960s, the frontier of unknown opportunities and perils, the frontier of unfilled hopes and unfilled threats. ...

    Lyndon B. Johnson didnt have many legislative issues on his time card for president. One that he did have involved him putting a numerous amount of troops into the Vietnam war. He was under a huge amout of stress and it was a bad move acording to everyone at the time but to Johnson something made sence. He put so many soildiers there because he thought it was the right thing to do for our country. Everyone reacted terribally and started to dilike him; they forgot all the good things he did do.
