Edward M. Kennedy

http://paullevinson.blogspot.com

It is beyond sad that Edward M. Kennedy has died. It is deeper, bigger, connected to something far more profound in the cosmos and the lives of people in my generation than just sadness.

I remember Walter Cronkite announcing the death of John F. Kennedy on television in 1963. I remember the headline on some New York paper in 1968 ... "Now Bobby..." Two of the worst memories in my life.

I don't think our culture has ever fully recovered from those losses. But Ted Kennedy tried. I regretted that he couldn't make it to the Presidency in 1980. But he made a difference. Perhaps most importantly in his endorsement of Barack Obama in that razor close primary with Hillary Clinton. It made a difference. It helped change America and the world.

At least Ted Kennedy died of natural causes. But death is never good. He could have lived a few more years, even a few more decades.

But we're fortunate that he lived and worked for the best instincts in America as long as he did. Although he won't be able to help directly in the great battle of our time, the battle for universal health care in America, his spirit won't be very far. Rest in peace. Your dream, our dream, will never die.

U.S. embassy had ‘absolutely no idea’ that Sanford was in Argentina.

http://thinkprogress.org

Not only did Gov. Mark Sanford’s (R) family and staff seemingly not know that he had taken off to Argentina for the past week, but ABC News reports that the U.S. embassy in Argentina didn’t know either. According to a U.S. embassy official in Buenos Aires, they had “absolutely no idea” that Sanford was in the country and added that the news comes “from out of left field — it would be extremely odd that a US governor would not check in with the embassy.”

Obama Did More Than Just Speak at Notre Dame

http://arkansasgopwing.blogspot.com

Mark Williams, Our Country Deserves Better: There's been a lot of press coverage about Barack Obama's speech at Notre Dame and the controversy surrounding the honorary degree bestowed upon Obama despite his pro-abortion stance. But there was more to the story about Obama's actions of the day. Before he returned to Washington, D.C. Obama headlined two fundraisers that netted more than $500,000 for Democratic congressional candidates who face tough re-election campaigns. Here's the report from the Associated Press: "Before returning to Washington, Obama started in Indianapolis for two fund raisers. About 40 people attended a $15,000 per couple Democratic National Committee event which raised between $300,000 and $400,000. About 650 people attended a second fundraiser for four Indiana Democratic congressmen. That dinner cost $250 - $500 per person." The message is clear, folks: Obama and the Democrats have already begun the campaign for the upcoming 2010 congressional elections and are determined to defeat you and I, and the conservative candidates we support.

Catholic Priest Shows Ignorance And Bigotry In Anti-President Obama Comments

http://sandygholston.blogspot.com

Rev. Frank Pavone, director of Priests for Life, told “FOX News Sunday” that the reason students and Catholic leaders are protesting Notre Dame’s decision to award an honorary degree to Obama is because they believe it’s the latest indication that the country is “trivializing abortion.” Pavone was reacting to a new Gallup poll that shows more Americans calling themselves “pro-life” than “pro-choice,” by 51-to-42 percent, for the first time since Gallup began asking the question in 1995. A recent FOX News poll also showed more people describing themselves as pro-life for the first time since 2004. “The nation is becoming more and more pro-life and they’re realizing that … abortion on demand throughout all nine months of pregnancy is just not where the American people are today, it’s not where they’ve ever been,” Pavone said. “The president’s position on this is in the minority.”
