Happy Birthday Senator Ted Kennedy.For those that appreciated the 2nd greatest Senator ever-

and yes, I am aware many here on Discussionist do not think highly of Senator Kennedy and the Democratic party, but this is for those, like myself, on Discussionist who did.

Way too long to even find what 4 paragraphs to post.
this is a great well written remembrance of Senator Ted Kennedy.

5. Hardly second, Top ten ...maybe

Henry Clay, Daniel Webster, Charles Sumner, John Calhoun, Hubert Humphrey all far greater Senators. Even ol' Lyndon rates a higher ranking than Ted, I am sure at least on that we agree...

Funny how a dead woman is smarter that a live conservative.

Remember had an accident in which a person in his car was killed. That is several thousand fewer Americans than Republican George W. Bush killed on purpose.

20. About an event that took place more than 46 years ago.

Senator Kennedy won a lot of elections in that time.

16. Bush killed them on purpose? or your imaginations run amok again*?

Lets examine what Democrats had to say about Saddam and WMD before 9-11-01

Saddam Hussein has spent the better part of this decade and much of his nation's wealth not on providing for the Iraqi people but on developing nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons and the missiles to deliver them."
-- President Bill Clinton (State of the Union Address), Jan. 27, 1998

"One way or the other, we are determined to deny Iraq the capacity to develop weapons of mass destruction and the missiles to deliver them. That is our bottom line."
--President Bill Clinton, Feb. 4, 1998

"If Saddam rejects peace and we have to use force, our purpose is clear. We want to seriously diminish the threat posed by Iraq's weapons of mass destruction program."
--President Bill Clinton, Feb. 17, 1998

"No one has done what Saddam Hussein has done, or is thinking of doing. He is producing weapons of mass destruction, and he is qualitatively and quantitatively different from other dictators.""Iraq is a long way from , but what happens there matters a great deal here. For the risks that the leaders of a rogue state will use nuclear, chemical or biological weapons against us or our allies is the greatest security threat we face."
--Madeline Albright, Feb 18, 1998

"He will use those weapons of mass destruction again, as he has ten times since 1983."
--Sandy Berger, Clinton National Security Adviser, Feb, 18, 1998

"e urge you, after consulting with Congress, and consistent with the U.S. Constitution and laws, to take necessary actions (including, if appropriate, air and missile strikes on suspect Iraqi sites) to respond effectively to the threat posed by Iraq's refusal to end its weapons of mass destruction programs."
Letter to President Clinton, signed by:
-- Democratic Senators Carl Levin, Tom Daschle, John Kerry, and others, Oct. 9, 1998

"Saddam Hussein has been engaged in the development of weapons of mass destruction technology which is a threat to countries in the region and he has made a mockery of the weapons inspection process."
-Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D, CA), Dec. 16, 1998

"Hussein has ... chosen to spend his money on building weapons of mass destruction and palaces for his cronies."
-- Madeline Albright, Clinton Secretary of State, Nov. 10, 1999


Defeats the whole Democratic party Myth, aka Bullshit that Bush lied when years BEFORE he was POTUS the previous Democratic POTUS also believed there was WMD.



*So if we use what passes for your logic then Bubba Clinton the sexual predator is responsible for
USS Cole
US Embassy Bombings in Dar es Salaam and Nairobi
Mogadishu
Rwandan Genocide
Serbian Genocide in Bosnia
Kosovo

Waco
Oklahoma City

Geee those bodies pile up don't they/

I mean using Your logic....

19. You may want to pick up a newspaper Bunky. The GOP Messiah, Donald Trump, believes that

Bush is a filthy liar who got Americans killed for nothing. Even the Republicans have come over to the side of Cindy Sheehan and Michael Moore.

But Bush is not alone in his guilt. Everyone who supported him is equally stupid, evil and wrong.

22. Trump is a closet Democrat, a plant by Hillary

Screw Cindy Sheehan- Her whole shtick was a lie. When she did talk to Bush after her son died for his comrades she didn't have shit to say to him bad. Only after the LW got hold of her did she suddenly start that mantra. When she was against Obama for the war the Democrats dropped her like a turd as fast as they could.


Screw Michael Moore- The Faux man of the People who is a Halliburton Stockholder and obese swine propagandist

23. Trump is a Hilary plant?

And the right wing is working to make him the nominee. Not very bright, that side of the fence.
