A TALE OF TWO PRESIDENTS:

President Obama signed legislation which disbursed large sums of money for high speed rail some years back, which evidently disappeared down a sinkhole as we still do not have high speed rail in America.
President Kennedy signed legislation disbursing funds for a concerted research and development effort to put a human on the Moon and today we are the beneficiaries of untold advances in biomedical engineering, telecommunications, digital electronics, computer science, materials science, polymer chemistry, satellite earth resources remote sensing, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera!
President Obama signed the Nat'l Defense Authorization Act of 2012, authorizing the military to arrest any American citizen, domest and foreign.
President Kennedy stood up to both US Steel and GE on behalf of the American workers.
President Obama, in 2010, closed the highly secretive office which tracked American jobs which were offshored.
President Kennedy attempted to end the tax breaks the IRS awarded to corporations which offshored American jobs, but failed at the congressional level, subsequently signing the trade act granting training and re-training to workers who lost their jobs to offshoring.
President Obama is seeking to pass the Trans-Pacific Partnership, which would forbid the existence of public banks, offshore millions more jobs, destroy workers' rights and national sovereignty, and work agains local and small businesses by outlawing any // buy American \\ clauses.
President Kennedy created and passed the Interest Equalization Act, motivating investors to amortize or reinvest in the American economy; injected $4.3 billion DEBT-FREE money directly into the American economy via the US Treasury [as opposed to the usual route of the Federal Reserve buying t-bonds, and issuing DEBT-BASED money, which would hike up the national debt and deplete the tax base] {Executive Order 11110}.
President Obama has yet to shut down Guantanomo prison.
President Kennedy established the Peace Corps and the US Navy SEAL commando units to promote worldwide democracy.
President Obama's administration has been involved with coups in Honduras, Ukraine and elsewhere, resulting in the deaths of many innocents.
President Kennedy brokered a deal equitable to both Indonesia and the Rockefeller oil companies [Stanvac & Caltex], not dispatching the CIA to kill thousands, the manner in which both the Eisenhower and Johnson administrations did [many Indonesian Christians, the minority there, died thanks to Eisenhower's machinations]!
President Obama has supported legislation which would have killed any network neutrality.
President Kennedy's administration laid the groundwork - - with their brilliant appointments like JCR Licklider, et al. - - for the creation and growth of the Internet which led to the existence of today's Web.
