Capitol Hill's 'Camelot' era coming to an end; Republican could replace last Kennedy in office

EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I. Two years ago, it would have been unthinkable that both seats held by Kennedys could go Republican. But Scott Brown's January election in Mass paved the way for the GOP who are hoping state Rep. John J. Loughlin II will win the race for Patrick's House seat. "There is extreme voter unrest about the liberal, big-government, agenda that is bankrupting our nation," said Eric Fehrnstrom, the architect of Mr. Brown's win--now a strategist with Loughlin's campaign. "People are beginning to wake up to the fact that our country is on the brink of financial ruin and RI is not immune to voter backlash we are witnessing in other parts of the country." © Copyright 2010 The Washington Times, LLC.

Don’t say that Obama didn’t accomplish anything. In just two years he’s purged New England of the last strains of a particularly virulent pathogen.

In Other Kennedy News You Don't Really Want:

"Ginger Kennedy" has withdrawn his name from consideration for a Senate seat.

I guess he had better offers---as Crest spox, or Clairol package model.

Don’t know much about Rep. John J. Loughlin II. Is he similar to Scott Brown? A Rino?

Camelot killer. Another reason for Dems to vote Republican.

Veterans: As the only candidate in this race who has served his country and is a veteran, I recognize the importance of continuing to support our fighting men and women long after they return home. I support educational incentives, extending counseling services and any and all measures to go the extra mile to help our brave service men and women find a place back home where they can enjoy a fulfilling and productive life among countrymen that value and honor their distinguished contributions to our great nation.

Second Amendment: I support the Second Amendment and believe that citizens have the right to keep and bear arms. I support safe and responsible gun ownership.

Here is what we need to do:

Cut wasteful Federal spending, starting with the "stimulus" program. Get money circulating in the economy again by stopping the Federal Reserve from paying banks to sit on money and not lend it out.

Make the 2001/2003 tax cuts permanent for everyone. Cut taxes on savings, investment, and job creation.

Reject the "Cap and Trade" energy tax increase. Reject calls for a Value Added Tax (VAT).

Repeal and replace the Federal healthcare takeover law. Stabilize the value of the U.S. dollar, thus stabilizing both the economy and the financial markets.

Make free trade work for, rather than against, American workers. Cut the bureaucratic red tape that is strangling small businesses by adopting sane and sensible regulations.

In retrospect; John Kennedy was the black sheep in the Kennedy family. After JFK, the family (which derived its wealth from a capitalist liquor distributor), saw its offspring turn into a socialist, power hungry ruling class.

‘Camelot’ was promoted by Hollywood and devoured by a gullible public....in a childish desire for an American “Royal Family”. Too bad that so many of the Kennedy clan bought into the foolishness and JFK’s legacy suffers.

I have never seen such ugly people. JFK jr god rest his soul how in the world was he one of them. I wonder if I would have been cursing him out about now for his politics. I can't picture him a flaming socialist like the rest of them.

No comparison.

Mrs O was all set to assume the Jackie mantle...... the WH decor, the European trips, the fashions.

But she screwed up bigtime when she gallivanted to Spain as Americans were joblesss and homeless.

Sure looks like Ted Kennedy worked with Soros to bring Obama about Ted was the king of socialism in D.C. now the question is who is Soros backing now for the next election?.

That's what they call bootleggers these days?

"Camelot" was promoted by Jackie. The Kennedy "clan" didn't just buy into it, they basically created it and fuelled it--just like the "eternal flame" at Arlington, another of Jackie's assinine ideas.
