Sorry. Nothing positive to say from this individual.
Let me be the first to say nothing
I had a feeling it wouldn’t be long after his sister died.
Uhhhhhhhhhh, uhhhh, yeah
Who’s Ted Kennedy?
If indeed he can find peace.
God have mercy on him.
Very sad days for Ted since Mary Joe died.
Entire situation tragic.
He should've never stayed in politics after that day. I've always wondered who the heck ever voted for him.
Now he belongs to the ages.
Only God can judge what this man has done in life, because the courts chose not to.....
That said, prayers to his family.
Mary Jo Kopechne unavailable for comment.
The sound of the many abortions encouraged by Kennedy
O My Jesus,
forgive us our sins
save us from the fire of hell
and lead all souls to heaven
especially those who are
in most need of Thy mercy.
The Senator is dead. Long live the Senator.
Has his replacement been “selected” yet?
Under Obama’s government rationed healthcare, Kennedy’s brain turmor surgery wouldn’t have been worth it, eh?
Prayers for the millions of women damaged by abortion.
I hope he didn't suffer too much, though I hope he is brought to justice for what appears a tyrannical and wicked life. If I'm wrong, I hope I'm forgiven.
That said, I wish he'd take the entire Camelot PR fiction to the grave with him. America is not a family founded on royalty or even quasi-royalty. I despise the entire Camelot myth and wish it would be buried and each individual would have to earn their rank and prove that they deserve respect.
G_D Bless Mary Jo Kopechne? R.I.P.
Tragic chapter in history.
May God Bless them both in his own manner.
RIP for one of the most malign influences in American politics over a period of half a century. May God have mercy on his soul.
God’s will be done.
Well, we know what comes next. The shameless Obama and his minions in the Rat party using Teddy’s death to tell us we now have an obligation to pass government healthcare to “honor Teddy’s legacy.” What’s the over/under on how long before the Rats are using his death to shove govt. deathcare down our throats?
Oh that Kennedy...you mean swimmer’?
May they do it with the fervor of the Wellstone Memorial. That didn’t go so well.
One less vote in the Senate for National Socialist healthcare...
"Thank you - could you please show me to the bar?"
"Sure, but first let me introduce you to someone. Mary Jo, come say hi to the new arrival before we send him down."
Mary Jo Kopechne will finally get to comment!
Well, not for him...
Prayers for his soul.
We finally know what happened to his brothers and who killed them. The truth starts with these facts:
This may be a rallying cry for democrats to cram socialized health care down our throats.
Instead of “win one for the gipper”, it will be “pass health care for Ted”.
Remember the democrats motto “never let a good crises go to waste” or its corrolary “never fail to capitalize on a tragedy or a death”
Let’s not forget how big it was to get the Kennedy’s behind Obama in order for him to win the Dem nomination (and ensure an easy cakewalk to the White House). In many ways Teddy is to blame for what we have to deal with today. No sympathy for him whatsoever.
Thought I’d be happy to hear this. I don’t feel anything but I think we’d better be prepared for the “Let’s get this healthcare deal done for Ted...it’s what he wanted”...bull crap. You know it’s coming.
Kennedy’s smear of Judge Bork on the US Senator floor:
“Robert Bork’s America is a land in which women would be forced into back-alley abortions, blacks would sit at segregated lunch counters, rogue police could break down citizens’ doors in midnight raids, schoolchildren could not be taught about evolution, writers and artists could be censored at the whim of the Government, and the doors of the Federal courts would be shut on the fingers of millions of citizens for whom the judiciary is — and is often the only — protector of the individual rights that are the heart of our democracy....”
I’m afraid you’re right about that. Rats can’t pass up the opportunity to use a death to advance their agenda.
A Murderer got away. How will History portray this vermin?
SEE-YA TED, And Fire Water Speed! COWARD!
Thanks B-Mom, already got it covered....
I know he has family who love him. He was a very flawed man from a very charged background and a less than good character daddy and grew up in the shadow of great expectations never ever living up to them.
I dunno. Ted was always the little boy in the shadows trying to catch up to the big shots he followed as siblings...
I have nothing positive for any Kennedy I can think of...they are my culture war foes but I do have sympathy for the tragedies they have suffered ...and caused.
What a mess of family to be called Camelot....still though prayers for all concerned. It is over.
ROT IN HELL TED. Reguards.
Trust the rats to use this guy’s death as a political prop for their socialist health care schemes. Maybe they’ll have a big rally at his funeral, like they did with Wellstone.
