Ol'Ted Left Us With A Lot.................


William Shakespeare said: "The evil that men do lives after them...."


Ordinarily we wouldn't speak ill of the dead. But Shakespeare's words ring all too true because the Left is shamelessly trying to exploit Senator Ted Kennedy's death in an attempt to ram Obamacare down the throats of the American people. And as patriotic Americans, we cannot let that happen. Remember one thing, all the sentimental tributes you're hearing on radio and television - the blubbering eulogies, the syrupy clich├ęs, the sickening lies - don't alter the hard fact that Ted Kennedy probably did more than any political figure of his generation to weaken and corrupt America. Someone has to remind them who Edward Moore Kennedy really was. Otherwise, a bunch of blind Democratic ideologues and weak-minded, sentimental Republicans will pass a so-called healthcare bill that will transform our great nation into a sick, socialist country. Political commentator Don Feder agrees. Feder - who lives in Massachusetts - wrote that he wished for a barf bag while driving around the city, listening to the fulsome tributes on local radio. As Feder put it:"Known as the 'liberal lion of the Senate,' Edward M. Kennedy was a fitting symbol for his creed - intellectually flabby, detached from reality, arrogant, self-righteous, hypocritical and, ultimately, useless." Are we doomed to listen to these sick encomiums for the rest of the summer and then watch a spooked Congress pass


Here are some highlights from that exemplary life we're asked to celebrate.
As a boy, Kennedy went to ten different prep schools before graduating from the last one.
As a freshman at Harvard, he cheated on a Spanish exam, got caught, and was kicked out of school.
He entered the Army during the Korean War, but his rich and powerful daddy arranged for him to spend his service time at NATO, while sons from ordinary families came back from Korea in body bags.
He effectively inherited his Senate seat from his brother Jack and settled in for 47 fun-filled years, despite numerous scandals that would have ruined his 99 colleagues. The greatest of these was Chappaquiddick, which Feder describes as follows: "It was a typical Kennedy bash on Chappaquiddick Island the evening of July 19, 1969 - mostly married men, six single women and copious quantities of social lubricants. "It took [Kennedy]10 hours to tell police that he'd left Mary Jo Kopechne in a submerged vehicle, while he huddled with advisors to smooth the rough edges of his story and get the alcohol out of his bloodstream. "In a plea for sympathy, Kennedy described his actions that evening as indefensible." "They were also cowardly and criminally negligent. A diver said that there was an air bubble in the back seat. Mary Jo, who died 40 years and 5 weeks ago, could have lived if she'd been reached in the first hour? Kennedy was charged only with leaving the scene of an accident. He was tried behind closed doors, given a suspended sentence. You see what I mean by "corrupt." Imagine what would have happened to a drunken Jesse Helms had he driven a girl to the Outer Banks, run off a bridge into 8 feet of water, left the girl to drown, and waited ten hours to report the accident.


Of course when it comes to the heroes of the Left, the Mainstream Media (MSM) admonishes us that it's somehow "wrong" to dwell on "personal mistakes" (that's MSM-speak for sinful, egregious or criminal acts committed by fellow liberals... when it comes to the standard for conservatives... that's another issue altogether). Fine... let's look at where Kennedy stood on the great issues of our time. Though he originally ran as a pro-lifer, when elected Kennedy immediately betrayed pro-life voters and supported the killing of unborn babies every time he had the opportunity. He voted against a bill to define an unborn child as eligible for coverage under federally funded children's health insurance. He voted against a bill criminalizing the harming of an unborn fetus during the commission of a crime. He voted against banning partial-birth abortions - whenever it came up. Did it sicken you to see that spectacular funeral service at the Our Lady of Perpetual Help Basilica? Rather ironic when you consider that Kennedy had probably done more than any other man in the United States Senate during the past half-century to undermine the ideals of the Catholic Church (and all Christendom, for that matter). Kennedy - whose own promiscuous and lascivious life was frequently covered on the front pages nationwide - supported every so-called "gay-rights" bill that perversity could generate. Joe Solmonese, president of the Human Rights Campaign, said this: " Senator Kennedy has, more than anyone else, been our strongest voice in the United States Senate for the LGBT community. On every piece of legislation - every piece - Senator Kennedy has been the lead." Patrick McDonald, writing in Queer Town, said: "Unlike other politicians, Kennedy never wavered in his support of gay marriage, voting against the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act and an anti-gay federal marriage amendment." Senator Kennedy played a key role in bringing so-called "same-sex marriage" to Massachusetts. Had enough? There's more. He was bad on guns. He was bad on taxes. He was worse on illegal immigration. As a matter of fact, he wasn't good on anything.

How do we know that Left-wing radicals will exploit Kennedy's death to sell Obamacare? Read on! George Soros' MoveOn.org put it this way: "Tonight, please light a candle in your window to memorialize him. Tomorrow, as Senator Kennedy said, '...the work goes on, the cause endures, the hope still lives, and the dream shall never die.' Tomorrow, let's re-commit ourselves to achieving the thing that mattered most to him: Quality, affordable health care for every single American." Nancy Pelosi likewise hauled out her violin and and fiddled the following: "Ted Kennedy's dream of quality health care for all Americans will be made real this year because of his leadership and his inspiration." Jimmy Carter - who held the distinction of being the worst president in memory until Barack Hussein Obama took the oath of office - said on CNN that Kennedy's commitment to universal health coverage and the "resonance of his speeches" will influence Congress so "that we can still have a comprehensive health program passed this year." Chuck Schumer - typically one of the nastiest and strident voices in the Senate - said: "Ted Kennedy wanted to get health care reform done for 40 years, and even in the last month or two when he wasn't involved day-to-day, people would always be saying, 'Well what would Ted have done?'" When asked if Kennedy's death would move Congress to pass the health care bill, Schumer said, "I don't know. I would hope that his loss would importune us." Said Ed Klein, author of "Ted Kennedy: The Dream That Never Died": "A lot of people think that in the wake of his death that the White House will go to the 'blue dog' Democrats, the conservative Democrats, who have been dragging their heels on health care reform, and say, 'Look, let's do this for the gipper. Let's do this for Ted Kennedy. Let's get this passed and put his name on it.'" You see. It's coming. In fact, it's already here.

If you don't like personal attacks, remember Kennedy's vile attack on Robert Bork, Ronald Reagan's nominee for the Supreme Court. It was perhaps the most contemptible piece of character assassination ever uttered by a United States Senator. Here's just one quote "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, and schoolchildren could not be taught about evolution, writers and artists could be censored at the whim of government, and the doors of the federal courts would be shut on the fingers of millions of Americans." As even the New York Times admitted in its recent obituary, it was a statement "that even friendly commentators called demagogic." Kennedy, People for the American Way, the National Organization for Women, and a gang of crazies defeated Bork's nomination by spending huge sums of money to spread provable lies. It was the end of a 200-year-old tradition of bipartisan courtesy in the selection of federal judges. Thanks, Teddy, for the 47 great years. We'll do everything possible to see that you won't have one more victory this fall.
