(KKK Robert C.) Byrd remains under doctor’s care
The Lincoln Journal ^ | 6-10-2009 | Ron Gregory

Posted on 06/14/2009 5:11:04 PM PDT by lilylangtree

WASHINGTON, DC - The nation's longest-serving United States senator remained under a doctor's care this week in Washington.

Senator Robert C. Byrd, 91, a West Virginia Democrat, was said by his staff to be receiving treatment for a staph infection.

Media accounts have said that Byrd, who has been in frail physical condition for some time, has been confined to a Washington, D.C. area hospital since May 15.

Byrd's spokesman, Jesse Jacobs, would not reveal the site where Byrd was confined when asked last week. He also would not discuss the severity of Byrd's illness. A source, usually reliable, said that the senator was not, in fact, in a hospital but was being treated at a private home in suburban Washington.

Regardless, Byrd's ill health has caused an outpouring of public support and concern for the veteran lawmaker. The Sunday (Charleston) Gazette-Mail contained a lengthy article about Byrd and his friendship with United States Senator Ted Kennedy, a Massachusetts Democrat. The story noted that Byrd opposed Kennedy's brother, John, when he was a candidate for president in the West Virginia primary in 1960. But when Kennedy won the Democratic nomination, Byrd was one of his staunchest supporters, according to the story by Paul Nyden.

Byrd's health and advanced age have led to speculation in recent years that he might step down. Sources close to Byrd have insisted, however, that he has no intention of doing so.

Wonder if KKK Byrd's islamic son-in-law is doctoring him. The man needs to resign. The demoncRAT leadership including the Byrdman supported obozo while the majority of the people didn't. The RAT leadership is so out of touch with its populace.

I suspect he doesn’t maintain a house in WV, the state he supposedly represents.

Also, when he checks out of the hospital, will he be taking the sheets with him?

How many incapacitated RATS does that make now?

Byrd. Kennedy. That Johnson guy from N. Dakota.

Seems like there was at least one more.

I hope he’s doing ok. But, for someone his age, shouldn’t he think about retirement?

I don’t get what the mystery is. He may have issues that many older people have. He should take care of his health of course. But, if he’s not able to do his job in the Senate anymore, I hope he’s able to make the decision to retire.

The Dems remind me more and more of a politburo hanging on to power instead of resigning. Byrd, Kennedy, Johnson, do they even do any work anymore?

Two high-profile white supremacists are currently receiving hospital care. One will be arrested for murder. One is a distinguished member of the US Senate. What a country!

Well, then only the voters can retire him. I don’t know when he needs to run for re-election, but the voters may take care of it then.

Then again, on the other hand, the voters of WV love this man and all the pork that he has sent to his chronically economically depressed state. I bet he might never lose an election as long as he lives.

I managed to p.o. a funeral home director in Elkins, West By God a few years ago. I was in the coffee room when he walked in and pointed out a picture of Byrd appearing in a local parade hanging on the wall. I noted that it was too bad it wasn’t Byrd’s funeral procession. The air was abnormally frosty after that.

Take a good close look at this image of DEMOCRAT SENATOR Robert Byrd.

He says he 'repudiated" his past membership in the KKK. If he did, it was awful late in life- he has grey hair in this image.

Just how old was he when he was the Imperial Kleagle or whatever they called him.? How many other DEMOCRATS are Klan Members?

What things did he do on his way up into LEADERSHIP POSITION in the KKK in the 50's and 60's?

Byrd is, and will always be, a vile, evil, racist, POS.

I hope he suffers and feels every pain signal his cruel body sends to his twisted brain.

Most likely as he has his name chiseled all over that place.

Maybe it isn't a physical ailment. Could be that he is "confined" in a mental facility?

I couldn't have said it better! The one difference is the MSM condemns one and praises the other as 'the conscience of the Senate'.

Actually there are many RATs who deserve immediate retirement, most to mental institutions. Harry Reid, Pelosi, Murtha and many more fit the prognosis as totally deranged.

Kennedy is a walking ghost. His time is short. Retire already! Gov Swartzenegger recently wrote a kind of eulogy in preparation for his demise. Just imagine the re-make of the JFK funeral they must be planning.

There are no more public works left in WV to put Byrd's name upon, so he can go anytime now. The RATs called Byrd "the conscience of the Senate." So much for lucidity and accuracy.

This thread is three days old, but I just now saw it. Want to set the record straight.

We had a Republican Gov. in the 90s, Cecil Underwood. It was his second time to serve. He was the youngest gov in WV history and the oldest one in his second term. Currently we have a Blue Dog Democrat as Gov. He has been a good one. If we have to have a Dem. Senator, he would be a good one to have. Don't know if he has any ambition for that position.
