Eunice Kennedy Shriver's relatives summoned to hospital
CNN ^ | August 10, 2009

Posted on 08/10/2009 11:43:42 AM PDT by Zakeet

Relatives of Eunice Kennedy Shriver, sister of President Kennedy, were summoned to a Massachusetts hospital Monday, a source close to the family told CNN.

"It's minute to minute right now," the source said.

Shriver, 88, founder of the Special Olympics, has been in the hospital for several days, her family said, and her relatives were summoned after she suffered a setback, the source said.

Some members of the family flew in to Cape Cod Hospital last week to be with Shriver, including her daughter, Maria Shriver, and her husband, California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, a source said earlier. She was in critical but stable condition then.

Of all the Kennedy's, she is perhaps the best.

That being said, I do hope that at some point this family gets off stage.

She’ll get the BEST CARE POSSIBLE and she deserves it.

God bless her. She has done a lot in this life that I agree with. If this is her time, then may she pass peacefully.

Despite my feeling toward the politics of this family, my prayers go out to them.

She looks pretty scary in that picture, and I certainly am not a Kennedy fan, but I do admire her for one thing - starting Special Olympics. Because of that I will offer sympathy to the family.

She always seemed like a decent enough person. Or do you not want to wish her well because you don’t like her family?

Special Olympics will not exist when 0bamadeathcare is made law. No more fun and games! The disabled will be eliminated because their care will be too costly. They may keep a token or two around but for the mnost part, this group of citizens is history and forced abortion will be part of the picture too. A baby like Trig Palin will simply not be allowed to be born.

I’m willing to bet her own brother will use her as an example of how all Americans should have the same health care as Eunice.

What is the carbon footprint of having your family summoned to your bedside as you near your final moments on this earth? What happens if you manage to survive for a few more weeks or months and they go home, only to come back at a later time? Wouldn’t it be better if we could schedule this sort of thing in advance, saving medical costs as well as the cost of short-notice travel?

ObamaCare (TM) is the answer. We can schedule your termination for any time after your 50th birthday. All you have to do is sneeze, and we’ll be there with a pill.

(In case I have to say it: </Sarc>)

Speaking of offering sympathies, could whomever posted that photo be any less sympathetic? I mean, take a good hard look at that photo because that’s what the rich looked like when they got old, before plastic surgery turned them into wax freaks.

The poor woman in that photo looks like the calcified remains of one of the Titanic victims, frozen in time.

As long as old Teddy hangs on — I am really hoping he holds on for quite a while. The longer he can inactively fill that senate seat, the better.

They must be summoning to the hospital for Teddy’s death, cuz according to the picture it looks like Eunice is already about 20 years dead.

“She always seemed like a decent enough person.”

From what I know about her, I agree. Seems to be a very likable person who has lived as normally as one can while being in the Kennedy spotlight. Prayers for her and the family.

Trig is the reason that the leftist Dimrats hate Sarah. Sarah is a new kind of feminist that does not fit the Leftist mold of a feminist, one that is conservative and pro-life.

When I was single, I had a girlfriend with a Downs child. That child had special gifts that were God given, and was a delight to all that ever met her. The left would have required forced abortion, or euthanasia for the child. And, yes, she participated in the Special Olympics and brought home awards for her accomplishments.

Special Olympics: probably the only good thing to come from the Kennedy family

Shriver will have a big, splashy, Kennedy Mafia funeral. Hundreds of pro-abortion “Catholics” will troop up to receive Communion in front of TV cameras, providing the pro-abortion American Catholic church another PR victory over the Roman Catholic Church.

Archbishop Sean O’Malley will be discovered the day after the funeral, sucking his thumb, curled up in a pantry in his residence.

Biting tongue. No comment.

All you have to remember is the "Special Olympics" and the joy and extreme happiness that it brings it's participants.

The only Kennedy who believed that Down Syndrome kids weren't abortion candidates.
