In Massachusetts, the Irish flag flies at half-mast in honor of the murderer and drunk that some like to call the most "effective" Senator in United States History. However, the same people who honor this baby killing drunk, Ted Kennedy, also lavished praise on B. Hussein Obama, who is beginning to make Jimmy Carter seem like a roaring success. Should it surprise us that Left-wing policies have been so discredited while at the same time their establishment media friends remain so blinded to the historical record. All I know is that in neighborhoods throughout America, the Italian flag is flying proudly unfazed by the death of the man who also killed the philosophy he championed as a consequence of his arrogance and stupidity.
As we all recall, Teddy ran for President in 1980 and lost to an even bigger failure, Jimmy Carter, in the Democrat Primary. In the Illinois Primary, many held signs noting Ted's record as the murderer. Instead of dropping out of the race, he remained in the battle until the Democrat Convention and badly divided the party. Who can forget the 1980 convention speech where once again he invoked his dead brothers and declared that the Dream would never die? However, he guaranteed that his Left-wing dream would wither on the vine and his challenge to Carter made it easier for Reagan to assume the Presidency in the 1980 general election.
Fat Teddy clung to his New Deal/Great Society philosophy the same way bitter small town Americans cling to their guns, religion and bigotry. However, he became a Dinosaur who represented the worst of the Democrat Party. The stagflation of the 1970's was a direct result of these failed policies and when Reagan assumed the Oval Office, he reversed these policies in a political transformation that the Messiah and empty suit could only hope to accomplish.
The Conservative Revolution swept the American consciousness and Fat Teddy and his friends were viewed as antiquated Dinosaurs. As a Dinosaur, Ted with his far Left-agenda got nowhere as Reagan courageously brandished his veto pen and ended the New Deal/Great Society policies that so badly damaged America.
Without an idiot like Ted Kennedy, Reagan would have had a much more difficult job unseating Jimmy Carter and bringing about the transformation of America's economic and foreign policy that restored this country as the Shining City on the Hill until recently.
When Ronald Reagan declared the Soviet Union as an "evil empire," Fat Ted wrote a letter to the then Soviet leader and promised to help him work around Reagan's bellicose stand. Imagine the arrogance of a United States Senator from the minority party thinking he could have any impact on foreign policy. But even worse was the betrayal and disloyalty he displayed to a sitting President. Not only was Ted Kennedy a murderer and a drunk, he was also a traitor in the same vein as Alger Hiss and the Rosenberg's.
This act of treason was not mentioned when President Oreo was eulogizing him, but the history is clear. He tried to directly undermine an American President and should have been prosecuted for this act of betrayal. Instead, the Left protected his misdeeds in the same manner that they covered-up for him at Chappaquiddick. However, it is more than clear today that Reagan had the right approach for dealing with the Soviets. He liberated over 100 million people from the shackles of oppression, while the Left in this country continued to insist that he was out of his depth.
The former Soviet Union was responsible for the death of over 30 million people and the failed Statist policies caused starvation and societal decline that was unheard of. Ultimately, this Marxist Utopia collapsed and American free market capitalism became the predominate prescription for individual freedom, except for the dullards of the Democrat Party, like the affirmative action case and black liberation theologian, Barack Obama.
Black liberation theology is an anti-white and marxist ideology that calls for the destruction of America as we know it. His first effort in that regard, socialized medicine, is a top priority and the Democrats are now calling for this to be enacted through a Budget Reconciliation process so as to avoid a filibuster.
I say go for it. Charles Cook, a noted political analyst, said the Democrats are well on their way to losing a substantial number of seats in 2010. If anything will help them along, it will be passing this Grandma-killing bill. Without the American people behind this radical agenda, it can't succeed. Thus, the Left can use their majorities to cram this outrageous anti-family bill down our throats in violation of the law and the U.S. Constitution. The legal challenges and political fall-out that will ensure will guarantee this health care bill's failure. So bring it on losers!
I can't wait to see Piglosi's botoxed face when she is relegated to minority status. As for Harry Reid, he can probably find a job as a cocktail waitress in Vegas since his days in the Senate will soon be over.
When Reagan was about to trample the far radical Left, he used to say let's win one for the Gipper. In the case of health care reform, I say let's win one for the fat drunken murderous dinosaur.
