M. Gilmer. Let he who is without fault cast the first stone,PrettyGood advice for us all,I think! Senator Kennedy did a lot more good for people in his life than he did bad.He felt remorse for his shortcomings and his life was filled with more tragety than most,This country needs more people like him and his brothers,It's because of people like the late Senator Kennedy That people like you and I can speak are opinions on a open email@example.com
Oh, please! What planet have you been living on? GWB was a consummate liar. Ever heard of "weapons of mass destruction are in Iraq"? GWB was a liar through and through--it's how he got us involved in Iraq.
God save me from good, devoted Christians. There's nothing worse than a fool with a cause. And GWB didn't even have a cause, he was just a puppet. People, look around.. You are bombarded with pointless entertainment aiming to numb your thinking, your food is filled-rotten with chemicals that aim to make you docile.. Everyone should travel around the world until he/she opens her eyes. A friend of mine was one of those devoted Christians. She went to Palestine after college for several months. What she told me the other day was "I'm not that Christian anymore, those people here talk only about conversion, they have no sympathy". Ted Kennedy had a life filled with pain and sorrow. He knew what it meant to be in pain, so he could truely relate to the people who are hurting. That's one of the greatest thing in life - Sympathy, you don't need any religious book to teach you that.
I wonder what your memoir would look like, Mr. Schoose. Would you write yourself in the most constructive way or would you write to destroy yourself. Mr. Kennedy knew and admitted how awful were his actions which resulted in the death of his passenger. He also knew redemption and hard work to help his country. If this were a memoir of a Republican, Mr. Schoose, I wonder if you would call it fiction. And, I do wonder what your memoir would look like.
Bravo! Ms.Swanson,for speaking out.I am not a big religous person,but I have been through many things in my life although they seem small to me next to Senator Kenned's trials,But I have learned that in human nature it is easier to judge than it is to have empathy and not judge,easy to lower people when they have done more than you but have been human along the way,and that it is harder to be quiet than it is to ridicule.Let him rest in peace Thanks Ms.Hanson,MatG.matgilmer@Gmail.com
M. Gilmer, if that had been your daughter, mother, sister that Ted walked away from and didn't report a human being submerged in the car for 9-10 hours, would you still say he did more good than bad? I don't believe the remorse line. If he had a conscience to begin with, he would have immediately run for help whether the girl was his wife or not. She was a human being. That was enough. Get caught with another girl, or let her die and delay the news? People would have thought more of him if he had tried to save her. Yeah sure, Ted cares about the common person.
And I am sick of hearing Ted Kennedy's life has had more tragedy than most. How do you know?! There are many people in this country who have suffered tremendous loss and tragedy. They just don't get all the press coverage this man and his family got. That is the only difference in the suffering.
How come most Dems can admit LBJ was a terrible president, but Republicans are still living in a dream world about GWB? He was a TERRIBLE, SELF SERVING president. Deal with it. Learn to seperate the person from the Party. Nobody said this about his father....2 of the greatest presidents of all time are FDR and Lincoln. One Repub and one Dem. Stop making cliches out of yourselves and think on your own.
Ms Scout, you ask others how they know he had tragedy, yettalk about the sad event of her drowning like you were there. Were you? Did you try to help? Oh, wait, you weren't there, you're assuming he tried to hide it while going for help. Unless you were there, you really don;t know what happened. (and I'm not a dem or a republican, I'm an independent, in other words, I have a mind of my own and don;t blindly follow one party). It's just funny to me that you'd ask "how do you know". Um, from the news I guess? Same place you got your info?....
By the way, you don't think the Kennedy family suffered? 2 assassinations and a plane crash? How many assassinations have you had in your family? How many young members of your family died in plane crashes?
Zero members of my family have died in plane crashes. I think that is because no one in my family suffers from delusional hubris. The plane crash was the direct result of an incompetent at the controls. I shudder to imagine what it was like in that plane with his wife screaming in his ear all the way down.
