Former Chicago first lady Maggie Daley dies at 68

Maggie Daley, the wife of former Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley and a gracious promoter of the city's cultural and educational programs, has died. She was 69. (born July 1943)

Maggie Daley, who had been diagnosed with breast cancer in 2002, died Thursday night, family spokeswoman Jacquelyn Heard told The Associated Press. Daley had been a reserved and dignified presence at her husband's side during his 22 eventful years as mayor.

When she first learned she had breast cancer in June 2002, Daley said she was shocked. "But you pick up and you move on. ... I'm not alone here. There are a lot of people who have experienced this," Daley said in the weeks after the diagnosis.

I understand she was a princess of a lady. Rest in Peace, Mrs. Daley.

Are you joking? The Daley twosome stole Chicago blind and were brazen and open about it. You might pray that she repented before her death but nobody should celebrate her wicked life.

Another pro-abortion “Catholic” gone. What a shame.

Exactly.

Just like Rose Kennedy, Jackie Kennedy, Lady Bird Johnson and Hillary Clinton. How could they not know what kind of animal they shared their marital bed with? And in some cases, how could they not know what kind of seed they spawned?

This is nothing to condone, let alone admire.

JFK was an ‘animal’? He’d be a Republican today.

1. She was a civilian never elected to Public Office

2. Unless you are talking about Hitler, Mao and Lee Harvey Oswald, true tyrants. If you have a problem with someone, save it for when they are alive,

As someone who lost my mother to cancer this year, you are personally offensive.

God Bless President Kennedy. He was far from perfect and was misguided in a few areas. But he loved America and our current President makes him look like George Washington !

I didn’t know her personally, and neither did you, but it’s just embarrassing when FReepers say crap like that.

None of us is perfect yet we are all God’s children, and when it comes to the kind of judgement you are passing out on someone’s wife and mother, that is WAY above your paygrade.

Once they’re dead, they’re all saints, are you saying?

Well, some of us here (and I’m speaking for myself, really) think that forums such as FR are far enough from the reality of it that we can offer honest opinions about those celebrities, known for being known, or as the case may be, known for being part of that corrupt 1% political class contemptuous of worms like you and me. You can offer your condolences to the family, but the family doesn’t read FR, and you’re just posturing, otherwise you’d go out on this Thanksgiving night, find an open store, buy a suitabler card, research the address, wait in line at the post office tomorrow morning, and send it priority mail.

Only Jesus Christ sits at the right hand of God the Father. Where all of us end up will be in his hands.

JFK was an ‘animal’? He’d be a Republican today.

Steeped in Kennedy corruption with bought elections, union bribes and other forms of corruption in his ledger account.

Pencil whipped war record much like John Kerry.

Morals like Bill Clinton.

Inept buffoon with the Bay of Pigs fiasco, Cuban missile fiasco, and Vietnam War fiasco to his credit after only a few months in office.

Inventor of the great society pushed through Congress by Lyndon Johnson.

I find nothing of substance to admire about the Libtard, and plenty things to detest.

Good post. Don’t forget the ghostwritten “Profiles in Courage”.

BUMP what you said.
It is little wonder Clinton modeled himself after Kennedy, morals-wise.

My previous post obviously should have been addressed to you.

Our current President makes [Kennedy] look like George Washington.

Let's face it, the Wee Wee is the worse government official since Caligula appointed his horse to the Roman Senate. That pathetic idiot Obozo makes just about everyone look like George Washington.

Exactly what did I say in that post was untrue?

Do you accept feigned ignorance? Do you admire it?

None of us is perfect yet we are all God’s children, and when it comes to the kind of judgement you are passing out on someone’s wife and mother, that is WAY above your paygrade.

Unlike others on this thread, I did not nor do I purport to judge whether or not a person is destined for heaven or hell when they die. That is indeed beyond my pay grade. However, as a Christian, I have a duty to speak out against sin.

have you ever watched a human being die of cancer ?

I have.

Have you ever watched a human life just thin and waste into nothingness ?

I have

you need to look in the mirror. and then ask yourself some very serious questions about your humanity and spiritual health.
