    Just two months after MLK was shot dead...1968 was a tough time. The war in Vietnam, the Beatles not getting along, my dad getting mugged at knifepoint in The Bronx.

    1968, it appeares RFK was going to be president.
    His brother Ted finished off his presidential chances by letting Mary Jo Kopechne drown, while he showered, ate a hot meal, and devised a cover-up story for why he was with her when they drove into a pond after a party. Kennedy failed to even attempt to rescue her, or to report the incident to the authorities until the car and Kopechne's body were discovered the next morning. There was evidence Kopechne was alive for perhaps hours inside the partially submerged car before she drown. But, none of this kept the people of Mass. from voting for him- over and over.
    For the '68 election, the Dems nominated Hubert Humphrey, and Nixon won the election in a close race 43%-42. Third party candidate Geo Wallace had a strong showing at 13%, and won the most all of the South.
    Later, after Nixon literally crushed far-left McGovern in the '72 election, the media ran Nixon out of office in a power play that made the American news media into a 800 lb gorilla- they learned they could take down a president they politically opposed if they chose to - or later save one (Clinton, and now Obama) if they chose.

    My Dad was a policeman in Kansas City in 1968.

    The entire force worked 12 hours shifts for 10 days after MLK was shot in April, and they did the same thing when Kennedy got shot too.

    Sirhan Sirhan never did it alone. He was a pure manchurian candidate. There are 2 many shots heard, 2 many holes found in the woodwork to have come from just his gun. IF JFK was hated by the politico's of the day, RFK was despised.

    That family really had a lot of enemies. I'd do some research or read books on the subject but ...

    Guess you never heard of....
    Faux News Channel
    Rush Limbaugh
    Bill O'Reilly
    Hannity
    Glenn Beck



    So you are saying Faux News HELPED Obama WIN the election in 2012?
    Because they had him LOSING by about 10 points at least 1 month before the election. :dontknow:

    Kennedy's first line in that video is ironic...




    the speech pretty much shows you how little politics has changed... Obama lifted most of that speech in his 2008 campaign.

    wasn't that about the same time as when the CA supreme court overturned their death penalty as unconstitutional?

    How did your dad handle getting mugged at knifepoint? Did it bother him for a long time?
