Why did columnist Thomas F. Schaller leave out the privileged John F. Kennedy as one of the presidents since World War lI who worked successfully on behalf of working-class Americans ("The virtues of a president with humble origins," Oct. 31)? Was it because Kennedy's example does not advance Mr. Schaller's liberal ideology ?
It continues to fascinate me that the left — not to mention President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden — continues to take credit for what Seal Team 6 pulled off, but obfuscates the facts surrounding the murder of a U.S. ambassador by al-Qaida or similar terrorist group in Libya. I would much rather have had the ambassador back than to have killed bin Laden.
