<p>Speaking to <em>Meet the Press</em> moderator David Gregory for NBC's web-based program <em>Press Pass</em> on Sunday, usually liberal actor Rob Lowe expressed a more conservative political perspective: <strong>"Just my own world view is that the individual needs to be more responsible for their own lives and that's not the conversation we're having right now, for whatever reason." </strong><br /><br />Lowe was discussing his role as President Kennedy in the new documentary <em>Killing Kennedy</em> and used JFK to make his point: <strong>"Kennedy's 'Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country'...today I think that's – our discussion is the inverse. People are asking, 'What can our government do for us?'"</strong></p><p><em>More in the <a href="http://newsbusters.org/blogs/kyle-drennen/2013/11/12/actor-rob-lowe-peo…; target="_blank">cross-post</a> on the MRC's NewsBusters blog. </em></p>
