Dem Senator Byrd Drunk, Drugged, Crazy or Senile On Live Senate TV. (3th In Line To be Prez!)
Senate TV / You Tube ^ | Senate TV

Posted on 02/16/2008 10:33:43 AM PST by MindBender26

Democrat Senator Robert Byrd is President pro tempore of the U. S. Senate. As such he is 3d in line to be President of the United Sates in the event of the death, removal or incapacitation of the Prez, VP and Speaker of the House.

He is 90 years old. This is incredible, rambling, off-topic video of him, a week ago, He seems drunk, stoned, crazy or senile, (or possibly a combination of all of the above) on the Senate floor, live on national (and international) TV!

As a qualification for Democratic Senator from West Virginia, he is a fomer Exaulted Cyclops of the Ku Klux Klan who declared in writing that he would "never serve in the U.S. Military alongside a Negro."

Granted, he seems to be suffering from a cold, but do we want this man anywhere near power of any kind!?!?

This is scary.

He’s old and extremely tremorous. God love West Virginia for electing him so many times and naming everything in the state for him. He’s certainly delivered the federal money to them.

These adjectives could be applied to about half the senators.

Keep sending him back to the Senate. He’s the perfect poster boy for that gaggle of decrepit morons. If we can just keep him at the podium 24/7, the country could only benefit from the paralysis.

I can’t wish anything good for this worthless, haughty sub human. MAde a life out of bilking money from taxpayers to build everything you can imagine “for his state” and name it after himself. I wonder how many minorities he hurt/killed as a result of his KKK membership and recruiting. What a fascinating speech he gave on Stimulus Bill HR 5140 - I mean, that IS what he was speaking about right??

I was surprised as well that no one came to see if he was alright. For all we know, he could have been having a stroke or something.

Oh, they’re paying attention, alright. They’re paying attention to who brings home the most goodies. That takes seniority, not sobriety or sanity, which tends to keep guys like Porkmaster Bobby Byrd in office.

You’ve got that right. He leads Congress in earmarks, something near half a billion dollars this year for West Virginia.
