President Barack Obama said Wednesday that the nation lost "the greatest United States senator of our time" with the death of Ted Kennedy.
"For five decades, virtually every major piece of legislation to advance the civil rights, health and economic well-being of the American people bore his name and resulted from his efforts,"
There was more than one time I went to the polls and the only vote I cast was for Senator Kennedy. During the Vietnam War, and although he was vehemently opposed to it, he wrote, sponsored and push a law through the statehouse in Massachusetts that all tuition and fees are waved for veterans attending State College here.
It was never about him but his life was dedicated to helping those who needed someone to fight when the "system" was determined to keep them down. People like Teddy are the reason we do not have term limits for our Congress and Senate. If the voters of a state think their representative are shit, They will vote them out. It happened in 06 and 08. We are very capable of term limits at the voting booth.
God has determined that Teddy's work is done and now it's time for his reward. We can all be absolutely sure that there is a special place for Teddy in heaven.
The boys are home and we are all going to Boston tomorrow to pay our respects to the greatest human and American I have ever known.
