Did you all see/hear this? Sen. Edward Kennedy has collapsed at a luncheon honoring President Obama. Paramedics have responded to the scene.

Sen Byrd supposedly collapsed too at the luncheon - but doesn't sound like he was rushed to the hospital.

Later reports say he simply left the luncheon at the same time. He was shook up over Kennedy, but no problems with Byrd.

I was only getting snippets of news at that point ... left the house after the inaugural speech and headed out to run errands, so I was getting bits & pieces as I was dodging in & out of stores, restaurants, etc.

Glad to hear Sen Byrd is alright, hope the same can be said for Sen Kennedy.

I don't agree with much of what Bush did, disagree with a lot of his politics, but I can still respect the office and the monumental difficulties faced by anyone sitting in that seat. I've only truly HATED one person in my life (he was scum and it really took a lot to keep me from killing him), I tend not to hate people, but I do hate what they do & say & how they act. Smile

My mom is pretty much a die hard Democrat, her neighbor is a die hard Republican. Right after the elections the neighbor told my mom she hated ALL Democrats. My mom looked at her and said "Well I guess you hate me!". The lady was dumb struck for a moment and then said, "No I still like you, it is all of the other Democrats." Mom invited her over to watch the inauguration today and she said she would only come over for lunch then leave. Sad that people are like that.

Oh don't get me wrong. I don't hate Bush. I even kinda liked the first Bush. I just don't think he should have been in that office. I am sure he is a good guy outside of politics. maybe?

George Sr will never admit this in public - but I betcha he wishes Jeb had run in 2000 instead of George Jr.

I will admit that I did NOT vote for President Obama, it had nothing to do with Color, experience, or any other things that I could of hung my hat on. It came to simple policy...policies that he plans to impose will not benefit MY family and MY situation or it was a moral issue that I did not agree with. Sure maybe it was alot of it was campain BS but I had to vote for what I believed in.

A lot of this was hashed out before the election, so I won't repeat it all.

I will say that I did vote for Obama, despite the fact that the policies that he plans to impose will not benefit MY family and MY situation in the immediate future. In fact, it will likely cost me money in the short term. However, I do believe that those policies are what is best for America at this time, and hopefully, that will benefit me and my family in the long run.

Are posts missing, or have they been moved somewhere else? In reorganizing the forum, I have moved whole threads from one forum to another. I have deleted a few completely that were very old and out of date. I haven't done anything with this thread. Perhaps I'm missing something in your comment, or perhaps I missed a post that was deleted by someone else.
