Image of a political cartoon called Throw him some more flowers, honey -- let's see how long he'll keep playing by Herb Block and published in the Washington Post on July 18, 1962.

From the U.S. National Archives we learn:

President John F. Kennedy gave stirring speeches proposing initiatives of the New Frontier, among them a payroll plan for aid to the elderly that later became Medicare and proposals to remedy civil rights problems. But even his own congressional leaders didn't seem completely saddled up for the New Frontier. And "anti-administration" Democrats joined with Republicans in a coalition that resisted his programs and proposals.
