A welcome for Obama?

I commend the Fort Worth Public Library for presenting an outstanding program Friday night featuring Bob Schieffer speaking about John F. Kennedy and his fateful Texas trip.

Schieffer commented that he thought Dallas got a “bum rap” by taking the blame all these years as the city that assassinated Kennedy. He described Oswald as a loner, a transient, a deranged man who bounced around from place to place and was not a product of Texas. He just unfortunately ended up in Dallas on that day 50 years ago.

However, as I listened, I wondered if the leaders of Fort Worth, and citizens from both parties, would go all out to put on the same type of Texas welcome, as they did for JFK in 1963, if President Obama were to visit today.
