Ted Kennedy is a statist, and I am certainly not holding out too much hope for him as a consistent or non-partisan champion of freedom.
Kennedy’s bit was the most engaging portion of the confirmation, but all the red- and blue-state commentators can discuss is Alito’s typical Republican evasiveness on the abortion question, which, like nearly all Republican judicial remarks on the topic, was clearly designed not to alienate either the center or the conservative base.

 Ted Kennedy
Kennedy earned C grades at the private Milton Academy, but was admitted to Harvard as a "legacy" -- his father and older brothers had attended there, so the younger and dimmer Kennedy's admission was virtually assured.
His father, Joseph P. Kennedy, former U.S. Ambassador to England, pulled the necessary strings to have his enlistment shortened to two years, and to ensure that he served in Europe, not Korea, where a war was raging.
Kennedy's bid was hampered by questions of Chappaquiddick and by an interview with CBS Newsman Roger Mudd, who asked the straightforward question, "Why do you want to be President?" Kennedy couldn't come up with a straightforward answer.

Kennedy was a major player in the bipartisan team that wrote the controversial No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, which according to both Kennedy and President Bush, was a compromise.

Furthermore, Kennedy's key congressional allies against the wind farm are two senior Alaska Republicans who are reigning princes of pork on Capitol Hill, Sen. Ted Stevens and Rep. Don Young.
Kennedy opposes this, explains the buzz on Capitol Hill, because he does not want to despoil the pristine appearance of a natural resource dear to his family and the memory of John F. Kennedy.
Kennedy may be evil incarnate for right-wing ideologues, but the wind farm fight shows how well he gets along with Republican politicians, such as Romney.

 Kennedy: George Bushs Vietnam - The Caucus - Politics - New York Times Blog
Senator Ted Kennedy spoke at the National Press Club this afternoon, detailing a resolution he plans to introduce today that would require Congress to vote on President Bush’s anticipated plan to send more troops to Iraq and any additional funding for those troops.
Kennedy would be wise considering even bringing up the past and simply work with his constituents and peers to find a real plan for success or withdrawal from Irag, rather than continue to punch holes in someone else’ idea or plan.
Kennedy pointed out, the false pretense and cooked intelligence that got us into this war are certainly not enough reason to stay and escalate our presence in an area we should never have been fighting in to begin with.

 News Hounds: Trashing Ted Kennedy
Charles Krauthammer said, among other things, that Kennedy is talking "complete nonsense"; the Ba'athists, the insurgents have no ideology, even Hitler had an ideology, all they offer is a return to the thuggery of Saddam Hussein; this is not 'hearts and minds'.
Mort Kondracke got the last word, citing Kennedy citing DOD numbers of 24,000 insurgents and 200,000 supporters in a country with a population of 70 million, presumably to show just how unpopular the insurgents are.
Ted Kennedy was made out to seem he doesn't know history or foreign policy because he holds a point of view far different than the Fox panel.

 FrontPage magazine.com :: Ted Kennedy's Jihad by Jennifer Verner
While Senator Ted Kennedy, D-MA, has always been unhinged, his performance since the beginning of the Iraq War shows that he is becoming increasingly irresponsible, irrational, and dangerous.In a ranking member of the Senate Judicial and Armed Services Committees during a time of war, this kind of behavior poses a danger to national security.
It was also apparently not false and misleading, in Senator Kennedy’s mind, to delay the appointment of Judge Julia Gibbons in an alleged attempt to throw the 6th Circuit Court in the University of Michigan Affirmative Action case.
According to Kennedy, a war on Saddam might also cause an unprecedented humanitarian crisis with an estimated 900,000 refugees, a pandemic and an environmental disaster as Saddam lit the oilfields on fire.

 FrontPage magazine.com :: Ted Kennedy’s Soviet Romance by Jamie Glazov
Based on the document itself, as well as other Kennedy writings at the time, I believe that Kennedy did this because it was a very dangerous time and Kennedy, like many liberals, was genuinely worried that Reagan was too aggressive in his nuclear arms buildup.
Kennedy literally seemed more trustful of the Soviet dictator than the American president; that's a fair interpretation of Kennedy's thinking, based upon what Chebrikov reported to Andropov in the memo.
So, in the mind of these individuals, to point out such facts on Ted Kennedy would be a kind of modern day McCarthyism, worthy of angry dismissal at the messenger (who is deemed without honor) rather than outrage at the source, who, like them, took on the anti-anti-Communists.

 John J. Miller on Ted Kennedy & The Kennedy Curse on National Review Online
The premise is simple: "The Kennedy Curse is the result of the destructive collision between the Kennedys' fantasy of omnipotence — their need to get away with things that others cannot — and the cold, hard realities of life."
Ted Kennedy once wondered "whether some awful curse did actually hang over all the Kennedys." Of course, the distinguished Democrat from Massachusetts has been the author of many of his own problems.
Later on, the Kennedys leaked unflattering information about Bowman to the press, even though liberals aren't supposed to "blame the victim." NBC and the New York Times even used her name, despite Florida's rape-shield law.

Kennedy has positioned himself as one of the most vocal opponents of escalation, demanding that Congress exercise its constitutionally mandated “power of the purse” to prevent this madness from going any further.
Kennedy is absolutely correct, Americans wanted a change and that is what the results of the 2006 election reflects; Democrats are in control of the House and Senate and they were voted into office to prevent the further escalation of the Iraq War and to change the course.
Ted has the conviction and courage to act while other democracts including prez candidates Hilary, Rudy, McCain…; not only had supported the war, they also are for the war as well as for more troop to Iraq as this writing.
