    I remember watching Ted Kennedy giving the eulogy for his brother Robert. A friend was in the room giggling. Do you think she thought it was funny or does a person's nerves show perplexing emotions, much like a yawn in a dramatic situation. There are a lot of questions concerning JFK's assassination, this is not one of them.

    Nope. He spoke at my high school three years ago and while I didn't attend an old classmate did attend. He told me that Bush Sr. spoke for 45 minutes, without notes and it was one of the most fascinating speeches on American history he had ever heard. You may disagree with his politics but from what my firend said. he'd like to be that lucid at 80+ years old.

    He's a Bush so he's no good.

    Killing John F. Kennedy was most certainly just behind that smirk.

    That was your first post? Maybe you should venture another try.

    We might never know what happened that day. However, the investigation was haphazard to say the least. Evidence was intentionally corrupted, accusations of witnesses and investigators being bribed, and the top authority (Hoover) accepting everything as "its all good".

    Wouldn't it be great if we could prove that Sarah Palin and Gw Bush did the shooting.

    It may have been his first post, but he still got it right.

    He's frikkn 89 years old....why speculate when no one knows the answer?

    "OMG, I just saw George Bush actually smile while they talked about the JFK assassination!!":eek:

    We have far more important things to discuss.

    We'll never get the real answer which is a travesty in and of itself, but one thing that I can say with certainty, is that there's no way Lee Harvey Oswald did it from that warehouse window. Absolutely no way.

    I find it just slightly insane to imply a former POTUS was involved/knew about another POTUS's assassination from a smirk. In addition, we are analyzing a person's reaction to a tragedy, and we are analyzing that reaction from a video.

    Why not? I'm not a marksman or even a hunter, but have looked from that window and the roadway numerous times. It's an easy shot. Now, the other variables are troubling: scientists confirm two shooters, the Zapruder film sequence was flipped, Gerald Ford's bribe, witness testimoney contradictions, etc. Like you stated, we probably will never get an answer.

    So what point is there in discussing our opinion of Bush sr's reaction?

    Why is it important to you Scout?

    I totally agree. The idea that a smirk in a video would imply involvement/knowledge/conspiracy/etc in JFK's assasination is beyond ridiculous. That isn't to say that any president couldn't, isn't, or wasn't possibly involved in some way. It's just that a smirk in a speech isn't going to tell you that.

    My brother actually has a Carcano. I've shot it too. I'm no marksman, but the FBI (IIRC) and Army had their marksman attempt to take 3 shots with that rifle, in the 6 second span Oswald allegedly didn, and they determined it wasn't possible. Forget accuracy, just getting the shots off wasn't something they could do. To me, there were multiple shooters, and government involvement of somekind. At some level, or in some way.

    It's Bush's Fault.
