Healthcare is no more a right than a college education. Maybe everyone in the world should have reliable transportation too right? Why doesn't the government just provide a car, a house, clothing, and food for those that can't provide for themselves? Here's a thought.........if people want free healthcare they can go get a government job!!!!!!!!!!

You could let the guy get cold before you start bashing first.

How sad, and disturbing.

I hope people give you more respect when you pass.

This has to be tough for the family, considering they just lost Eunice.

I've "bashed" him for years, nothing new for me. I DID offer my sympathy prior to the "bash".
Well, atleast there IS a positive to this.....maybe his death will put a little damper on Jacko's "homicide" in the MSM.

Well, my question would be: "What did she know?"


Also, he funded terrorism in Britain, so I have no respect for the man.

MSM are calling him "the most influential law maker in US history". That says it all right there. Look at the shape the US Gov't is in right now. And they credit HIM for most of it. Well, guess that says a lot for Ted doesn't it? (a little early morning sarcasm with my coffee).

Love him or hate him. . . .

It's the end of an era.

Well, with the passing of Teddy, it remains to be seen if this is the end of the
Kennedy Curse.

His passing will change the landscape of Washington politics as much as the election of Obama, given that he lived and 'worked' there for nearly a half-century.

I will not speak ill of the dead...I can just feel the whack! along side my head by my parents, if I did. Plus, it's just a downright low class thing to do.

RIP Mr. Kennedy. My thoughts are with his very close-knit family. I'm sure this creates a great deal of sadness for them.

Thank you for that report. It most certainly won't be reported elsewhere in the MSM because 'we want to remember him for all the Good Things'.

... overwhelming silence ...

"That was just because he deserved a moment of silence not because we couldn't come up with anything good. And that's our nightly report. Film at 11"

OMG I hope this doesn't become as big a thing as with Michael Jackson... except maybe they will find that even though Kennedy had an underlying illness, like Jackson, they can charge Obama (the visiting Health Care Provider.)

I'm just sayin' Ya Know....

(Same thing happened after he visited his dear departed Grandma; smells like a conspiracy of one.)

Edit to add: I'm low class, and offensive.

My heart goes out to his family, friends, and colleagues.

The lack of class and compassion shown by too many people on here is very sad. I thought our motto was deny ignorance, to be so hateful when the man has only been gone a matter of a few hours is one of the most ignorant things I can imagine. Whether or not you like his politics, where is the simple human dignity?

At least he is finally reunited with his brothers, and that curse seems to be over now. I do hope that it is anyway. I really didn't think that much of it until John Jr. after that tragedy I really did have to wonder.

RIP Teddy, may god be with you.

I never bought into that 'Kennedy Curse' thing. They are a big family and in the spotlight. Bad things eventually will happen. A lot of their 'curse' they brought on themselves .... the booze, the car wrecks, the airplane crashes, the drugs and 'date rapes', etc. None of that were curses. It was all human failings.

As for Ted Kennedy ... I wouldn't wish cancer on anyone and I'll leave it to God to judge where he should be in the afterlife. As for Kennedy's poltiics .. they sucked. I'm glad his power play to get his puppet, Kerry, into office failed. Thank God for that.

May God rest his much troubled soul. He was truly an icon in his own mind and in the minds of the Democratic Party.

RIP Mr. Kennedy! My condolences to his family and his friends.
To his enemies, I have to say, show some respect! At least, wait till he's buried till you grab your shovel to pile more dirt on him. And to the poster who asked whether this is the end of an era, the Kennedy era to be precise: no, that era ended back in 1968 when Bobby was killed.

Lack of class? Kennedy stood for the entire antithesis of what it means to be American. He was a died in the wool socialist. He would have turned this country upside down if he would have had the power. Who cares if the man's dead. Who cares if more Kennedy's die. Are you going to be sobbing away when Arnold Schwarzenegger dies? There was a girl from California who had her teeth ripped out, her fingers cut off and was stuffed in a suit case. I'm sure as we speak there are any number of children starving to death in Africa or even right here in America. Ted Kennedy lived to the ripe old age of 77 and made a FORTUNE being a career politician. And how much did he really change the average American's life? Did he have a huge impact on YOUR life? It's obvious who the liberals are........or dare I say it who the women are in this thread. Let's keep things in perspective, come down out of the clouds!!!!!!!!

I agree. I certainly was no fan of the man, but lets at least give him today. My condolences to the family for their loss.

It's amazing to me, the monsters in the basement of mens' hearts. The ones that choose to come out, and the ones that don't. It is indeed too much to expect simple decency from political wind up toys. Wind them up, and they sing the same song over and over again, regardless of the storms outside.

To say that I pity them, and their poisonous hearts, is an understatement. I've seen in this thread conservatives who could look beyond their own politics, and show a fair amount of class for the passing of an American senator. And I applaud them. I've also witnessed the rotting, festering corpse that used to be the high minded spirit of debate at ATS, left to wilt in an arid, desert sun known as shallow politics.

And not dinner table politics. The kind of irrational, prejudiced, closed minded and shallow discourse that governs the animal kingdom and prison riots. A bottom dwelling, lynch mob mentality Ruled by fear. There is an ugliness here. A black souled ugliness, and it will take a long time to scrub this place clean again. And it's not just this thread, it's all over the site.

I don't know what kind of ruinous light governs your day, but I'm glad it doesn't govern mine.

Yes, and it is also obvious who the liberals hater and the misogynist is. No arguing there. And I suppose that you yourself then are the perfect measure of what it means to be American? While I will be not sobbing away when Arnold or any other politician dies for that matter and I am not sobbing away at Mr. Kennedy's death now, I also won't be crying "Good riddance!" -like you do- when a politician dies who used to have different beliefs than me.

It amazes me, how people on a site like ATS with all it stands for.....are quick to defend the Kennedys. Amazing.
