The Lying Liberal Lion Ted Kennedy Dies

I sometimes wonder if Barack Obama carries a big bundle of bad karma around with him. Considering all the people who have died that have be associated with him. There was his mother who died very young, his father in a car accident. The grandmother who raised him who died never knowing whether he ever became President. Now comes Ted Kennedy whose endorsement of Obama helped push him ahead of Hillary Clinton for the Democratic Presidential nomination.

I'm a registered Democrat but, I don't put Kennedy on a pedestal as Liberal Democrats do. He certainly was no profile in courage and his positions are often way off the mark as his comments on the illegal immigration through the years have shown:

1965: "The bill will not flood our cities with immigrants. It will not upset the ethnic mix of our society. It will not relax the standards of admission. It will not cause American workers to lose their jobs."-Senator Ted Kennedy

1986: "This amnesty will give citizenship to only 1.1 to 1.3 million illegal aliens. We will secure the borders henceforth. We will never again bring forward another amnesty bill like this." -Senator Ted Kennedy

2007: "Now it is time for action. 2007 is the year we must fix our broken system." -Senator Ted Kennedy

Then there was how he used his power to help kill the offshore windmill generation project off of Martha's Vineyard because it would ruin the views of he and his elitist neighbors. Then there was his behavior and complicity in the death of Mary Jo Kopeckne. If the Internet had been around when Kennedy drove his car off the bridge I doubt his political career would have survived as long as it did.
