Most Presidents make errors, fail to seek ample un-biased council, or are forced into a situation by circumstances beyond their control. For Kennedy, it began 53 days after hi…s inauguration. The CIA and the Eisenhower Administration had planned and trained the exiled and anti-Castro Bay of Pigs operation for the past year, and the one thing that he insisted on having was plausabile deniability. No US troops, ships or aircraft were to be involved. The operation was thus doomed from the start. The CIA was certain that Castro lacked popular support. Kennedy believed in them. They were wrong.. Eisenhower who had planned the great D-Day invasion at Normandy had been duped by a small number of CIA operatives into approving a plan that was based on faulty intelligence, estimates or resistance strength, of Castro's control of the populace and on the training and skill of Brigade 2506. Kennedy refused to allow the 82 nd Airborne Division and the 2 nd Marine Division, (Reinforced) ,the 2 nd Marine Air Wing, the most powerful Navy's Fleet and the most powerful Air Force in the world to enter the fray in support of 1,511 Cubans without Casus belli. In the 1960's it was still unpopular to go to war without just cause or a legitamate reason. People in high office still needed strong words like Alamo, Maine, Lusitania or Pearl Harbor to place troops in harms way.. The Bay of Pigs fiasco set the US up for the Cuban Missile Crisis and for a continuation of the Cold War.. And next,
John Kennedy started the Peace Corps and the project to send people to the Moon.
JFK was 1st U.S. Pres. to place Amer troops in Vietnam. They were limited in numbers and were called advisors. They trained S. Viet and mountain tribe troops to fight against …the N. Viet communists. He also initiated the space program which he never saw put a man on the moon.
YES to some people but he was also bad to others. tHE president before JFk (i don't remember who...) had promised to assit cuba in their war. It was a war to overthrow cas…tro, the - very bad ruler of Cuba- so the soldiers from the U.S. and supplies they were going to bring to help was on it's way . But then another presiden't got elected while the plan was still going on. John F. Kennedy. So JFK pulled all the U.S. soldiers out of Cuba leaving the cubans alone and in need of U.S. help. But since we didn't go to help them, they did get caught and killed. So many people were killed and thrown into the bay, they call it the bay of pigs- because people were just slaughtered like pigs. There are numerous books about it and JFK gets the blame for it.
His Favorite Things to do as a president is meet people and do speeches
When it comes to outside activities, he enjoyed sailing with his family and friends. As he said in 1962: "We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea, whether it …is to sail or to watch it, we are going back from whence we came."
I am reading the Chris Mathews book on JFK now and he was an amazing fellow. He was a war hero. In WW2 he saved 10 men's lives that were on his PT boat, came home and served i…n the House for 4 terms, served in the US Senate, and finally president. As president he had the cold war to deal with and handled the Cuban Missile crises. He started the Peace Corp and did a thousand of other things. His philosophy concerning war and peace was established at least 20 years before he would face one of the most challenging things a president ever faced. He kept us out of nuclear war. He felt that war was useless and that other ways could solve problems. Imagine, if he hadn't felt this way and was a person who thought war solved problems. It is beyond imagination of what our world would be like today.
John F. Kennedy was the first roman catholic president of the U.S.
Number one, getting through the Cuban Missile crisis, (he stoped a possible third world war)then second, the nuclear test ban signing. Third, the Trade Act of 1962. Fourth, es…tablishing the Peace Corps. I copied this, it is an asnwer someone wrote about the good things he did but may as well answer your question; some people dont liked him because he was too honest and rightneous. He was the youngest president ever to enter office. He also told the TRUTH. Truth about secret societies and agendas, such as Skull and Bones, and he attempted to tell the truth about UFOs among other topics. This would have said this, had he not been killed: "My fellow Americans, people of the world, today we set forth on a journey into a new era. One age, the childhood of mankind, is ending and another age is about to begin. The journey of which I speak is full of unknowable challenges, but I believe that all our yesterdays, all the struggles of the past, have uniquely prepared our generation to prevail. http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_did_John_F_Kennedy_accomplish_while_being_President# of this Earth, we are not alone. God, in His infinite wisdom, has seen fit to populate His universe with other beings -- intelligent creatures such as ourselves. How can I state this with such authority? In the year 1947 our military forces recovered from the dry New Mexico desert the remains of an aircraft of unknown origin. Science soon determined that this vehicle came from the far reaches of outer space. Since that time our government has made contact with the creators of that spacecraft. Though this news may sound fantastic -- and indeed, terrifying -- I ask that you not greet it with undue fear or pessimism. I assure you, as your President, that these beings mean us no harm. Rather, they promise to help our nation overcome the common enemies of all mankind -- tyranny, poverty, disease, war. We have determined that they are not foes, but friends. Together with them we can create a better world. I cannot tell you that there will be no stumbling or missteps on the road ahead.
