The library is a slanted, one-sided shrine that's filled with many lies to make JFK, who was born with a silver spoon in his mouth, to seem saintly because he looked so boyishly handsome. Prior to coming, I was really expecting 2 rooms: JFK's conquests with thousands pictures of whom he banged and the 11/22/63 assassination, but understandably came across neither. Instead, I saw how much of the taxpayers' money was wasted on Jackie's frivolous spending habits to "restore history" and wear a different Parisian designer dress every single day in her life. By the way, JFK never wrote the book: Profiles in Courage. Somebody else did, but JFK took the credit. I actually laughed myself silly when I read the beginning sentence of one display about how the seeds that would lead to the Bay of the Pigs first began during the last administration and that JFK was basically handed the mess he was forced to clean up. The Cuban Missile Crisis? That was all JFK's fault as he escalated it by setting up nuclear weapons in Turkey much earlier to have the decided advantage of attacking USSR which obviously triggered the crisis. The mess in Vietnam was started during JFK's term which didn't have to happen in the first place, but it just mushroomed anyway. JFK did not care a farthing about the civil rights or what was happening the South with the bombings of black churches; instead, he gave the FBI his blessing to harass those who were trying to promote the movement that would finally see the passage of the Civil Rights bill during LBJ's term. On the other hand, somewhere in that fake library should be a wall of what happened at Chappaquiddick with blow-up pictures and another about how the father ran an illegal organization to distribute alcohol during the Prohibition to create a fortune, had Rosemary lobotomized and therefore hid away from the public for life, and rigged the national election for JFK. All in all, stop with the lies and cover-ups and start telling the truth; the JFK Library just looks stupid as a result.
