Barack Obama today stood up and praised his mentor Edward Kennedy at the funeral Mass of the "Lion of the Senate". Not that there's anything wrong with the President "lionizing" a popular and influential Senator and member of his own party. But When Obama gushed on about Ted it made me think about the similarities in these two men of the people. How whitewashing and varnishing of the truth can live on if nobody wants to know the real truth anymore.
Kennedy was all they say about him and more. The main problem I always have with liberals is that they never seem proud enough of their stance to come right out and stick with their arguments until any conservative can be convinced liberalism is a better approach to this world we live in, and human nature which controls everything we see. The Democrat family even used a few children to turn the funeral into a political symposium. Kennedy was a known coward who let the leftist agenda trump Americas interests every time, and unfortunately B.O. is following that lede. Kennedy stated his life's work as Health care for all, but didn't want to give Nixon a victory on that issue. Politics was what Kennedy cared about first foremost and all ways.
Obama is just like Uncle Teddy when it comes to that modus opperandi. The end always justifies the means, and nobody is more important than the cause except for he, himself. I dont have the energy right now to list all these pairs' seditious acts of incompetence, arrogance and servile treachery. Suffice it to say that Barack Obama and how he handles Honduras, Iran, what happens in Afghanistan soon, North Korea and Venezuela, will be most likely reminiscent of Senator Kennedy's handling of Viet Nam, Iraq and the 2 Gulf Wars, Iran in the Carter into Reagan years, and Nicaragua. Its what we get when we elect a junior Senator to the Presidency, a junior Senator that I am certain was awe inspired by Kennedy's mastery and manipulation of the American system of power and privilege. Obama was the exact opposite of Kennedy in time in the Senate served, Kennedy a lifer who knew every corridor and lever, and Obama, an aspirant to higher power who never intended to serve the people of Illinois at all. The seat was his springboard to the Presidency. Kennedy, too, would have not been satisfied, but his luck and behaviour, in spite of his regal name, doomed him to being the lifelong Senator from Massachusetts.
Kennedy was more interested in his career than he was with real Americans and their difficulties, the abstract angles of race and immigration trump real world concerns like crime and threats to National security. The give and take that Kennedy has been posthumously granted was always the side of whats right and good giving and what was wrong and detrimental to the country, taking. Obama is the packaging and street cred that Kennedy longed to wield. And Kennedy had the ruthlessness and connections that appealed to Obama, along with his hyperbolic, bombastic style countering Obamas"cool". They are flip sides of the same 3$ lead coin that in all its worthlessness still can be counterfeited upon Kool aid drinking wanna-believers.
