A Hint Why JFK Failed in Cuba

By Debbie Schlussel
Ever wonder why the Bay of Pigs and the Blockade of Cuba both failed miserably?
Part of the reason might be President John F. Kennedy’s plan, as indicated in his “doodle,” below. The doodle is one of many random drawings by various U.S. Presidents contained in “Presidential Doodles: Two Centuries of Scribbles, Scratches, Squiggles & Scrawls from the Oval Office,” a new book. According to an AP article on the book, we think we’d prefer Teddy Roosevelt’s and Ronald Reagan’s doodles, which are, respectively, sketches of two dogs staring across a campfire and Regan self-portraits in a cowboy hat. According to the book, if Reagan drew a football player or horse, that meant you bored him.
Also, since Bill Clinton was not mentioned by AP, we think he was probably too busy hosting private “doodling” sessions with Monica and assorted other “girlfriends” (euphemism) to draw anything of note.

Hi Debbie,
The “doodles” commentary was, at least to me, very telling… especially re: former President? Clinton. Most of the Presidential doodles concern important meetings concerning the security and/or welfare of the nation. The fact that his doodles were not mentioned, leads me to believe that he contributed nothing of consequence or was completely disengaged when it came to important events. The big issues leading up to i.e. 9/11 overtly point to that, but this subtle statement seems to speak even more loudly to the truth!
