Skip to comments.Put the "Dream" to Rest with Sen. Kennedy
Posted on 08/28/2009 7:06:58 AM PDT by FMoran
Senator Ted Kennedys death has given us a chance to truly judge the character of our lawmakers and our media. Kennedy passed away on August 25, 2009 as the third longest serving senator of all time. Instead of simply paying their respects and laying him to rest, the Democrats, quite predictably, are using his death to push their wildly unpopular political agenda. What does this say about the Democratic Party? And what does this say about the credibility of their beloved healthcare reform?
In the coming weeks, the Democrats will continue show their true colors, and milk Ted Kennedys death to every last drop in order to generate guilt and sympathy for their cause. There is even talk of attaching Kennedys name to this initiative (which I find to be a little ironica supposedly morally necessary healthcare bill, to forever be associated with a man who killed a girl?). Now, it is no longer about the flaws of HR3200. It is no longer about cutting costs. It is no longer relevant that Obamas approval ratings are crashing, that his healthcare bill is packed with lies, or that even members of his own party wont back his agenda. It is no longer a game of politics between Democrats and Republicans, because nowits for Ted. He had brain cancer. He was an inspiration. He wanted this, and if you dont support it, you are not only insensitive and cold, but you are dishonoring the legacy of one of the greatest senators of all time.
But even wrapped up as a tribute to Senator Ted Kennedy, the Democrats healthcare bill is still, quite frankly, a piece of garbage...

Personally, I’ve been planning on putting some nightmares to rest.
OH MY....is this the end of camaloot
I see it more as a piece of garbage wrapped in rubbish inside an enormous pile of bull-sh!+.
the way they aare dragging that coffin around is beginning to look like a weekend at Bernie’s
Isn’t it ironic that all 3 Kennedys buried in Arlington died from damage to the brain.
So if they want to brand H.R. 3200 with the moniker and mug of an unpopular politician, don't get in their way! Never interrupt an enemy while he is making a mistake.
This is the end of a despicable drunkard nightmare!!!I doubt seriously he will rest in peace!!!
In the same vein, I do hope O can't resist making an appeal for healthcare legislation in the eulogy tomorrow, as a tribute to the Senator who got away with murder.
It’s only fitting that the POS HR3200 be buried with the POS Kennedy.
The Tea-Parties, i.e Celente's 3rd figurative shot of the 2nd American Revolution,
The book Ted stopped Ronaldus Maximus from being the standard of American History in our Classrooms, is now a best seller.
If he was conscious of these towards the end, I would imagine they would have been unsettling to him.
But should these two phenomenon become a reality in the sense they truly stop the Obama Juggernaut, it will truly put the steak in the heart of his Early 20th century progressivism, which Ted Kennedy was at his core, an early 20th Centry Progressive.
In a recent book, I can't think of the economist, he noted the Dysfunctional will give way to the functional. Broken models will fail, i.e. GM (and now Detriot is on the verge of chapter 11) and new models will emerge.
With that said, Medicare,Medicade, and SSI are failed models, and so would Teddy's Obamacare be. People are awaking and realize doing more of the same and that is the definition of insanity. Ergo the pushback.
The changes coming or terminating of these failed models, I do not think he would have been able to deal with, or the "future" below...
I hope they give us another Wellstone moment.
In Ted’s memory .......... Deep-Six Obamacare.
Not only are you all that if you don't support the healthcare pig, but you're racist too.
After all, Obama is just another brother from a different mother to the Kennedy's.
My wife said that last night too. She said Obama remarked that now isn't the time to talk about HealthCare. It's time to remember Kennedy. And then she said I bet anything you have that he'll talk about HealthCare at Kennedy's funeral.
Thats a suckers bet. You know Obama will weave Healthcare all the way through the eulogy for fat Teddy the swimmer.
I was born only several weeks after Kennedy’s death. I know nothing about “Camelot” - other than what I read.
Camelot was conjured up primarily by the media to differentiate the Kennedy Administration from the more blander and staid Eisenhower Administration.
The concept of Camelot was entirely a media-driven one, in many ways similiar to last year’s media burnishing of Obama’s credentials and record.
Though Jackie Kennedy did bring an air of refinement to the White House, there really was never a Camelot. Unless, of course, one included drug abuse and adultery as part of the whole Camelot fable.
It’s now time that the US put the concept of Camelot and America’s Royal Family (the Kennedy’s) behind it.
Makes perfect sense! Garbage bill= garbage Senator, dead Senator=dead bill!
“So if they want to brand H.R. 3200 with the moniker and mug of an unpopular politician, don’t get in their way! Never interrupt an enemy while he is making a mistake.”
Absolutely, make sure that it’s referred to as something like the “Kennedy-Obama Healthcare bill”. Or the “K.O. Bill”, guarenteed to knock you to the canvas so hard that you’ll never get up.
