My thoughts on Senator Kennedy’s passing are here.
Please read that before reading my thoughts on his legacy below…
My thoughts on Senator Kennedy’s legacy are many. Personally, I believe that the Communists killed his anti-Communist brother JFK, so that LBJ could move this country in a Socialist/Communist direction. I believe that the Communists also used Arab assassins to kill Teddy’s brother Bobby, and to attack this country on September 11, 2001.
I believe Teddy was a coward who left a woman to die in a car submerged in only 8 feet of water.
I believe Teddy was a coward who decided that rather than fight the Communists, he would join them.
And for decades he championed the Socialist/Communist agenda.
Our country is better off without his vote in the Senate.
And my thanks go out to Mitt Romney for being the MA Governor in 2004, so that Kennedy pushed to change MA law so that a special election (not an appointment by a Republican Governor) would fill John Kerry’s Senate seat should Kerry have won the 2004 Presidential election.
That law change means that the people of Massachusetts, who are hopefully fed up with what the Democratic Socialists have done to their state and this country, will have a chance to fill Teddy’s seat with a conservative Republican. That would break the Democratic Socialists’ number of 60 votes in the senate, but I feel confident that the RINO ladies from Maine will be all to happy to help break filibusters.
Anyway, as to Teddy’s legacy, let’s see what people have been Googling…
As of the time of this post, here are the entries related to Kennedy at http://www.google.com/trends/hottrends
I have highlighted 3 of the top 4 (which collectively means it’s the true #1),
4 of the top 10,
5 of the top 15,
6 of the top 25,
8 of the top 50, and
14 of the top 100
which I think all collectively point to what people are thinking about most in terms of Teddy’s legacy…
If we want to memorialize someone for their stand on healthcare, let’s memorialize Ronald Reagan for what he said nearly five (5) decades ago!
Some are calling Teddy the “Lion of the Senate”.
“Lion of the Senate”???
Cowardly lion, maybe.
UPDATE September 8, 2010: From Hillbuzz:
Isn’t this treason?
Plotting with foreign agents against the United States of America’s best interests?
The London Times, in 1992, broke the story of Kennedy wanting to take down Reagan’s re-election bid…but the American state media ignored this. And they refuse to report on this to this day.
Ted Kennedy is a patron saint in the Cult of Liberalism…and it is against the JournoList and CabaList code to write a negative word about him…or his Aaron Burr-esque plots against the country and TWO SITTING PRESIDENTS.
