Reflections On Senator Robert Byrd’s Passing


Those three little letters set the tone for the legislative life of West Virginia Democratic Senator Robert Byrd. Byrd spent the majority of his legislative life making up for his “indiscretion” of youth.

Unfortunately, Byrd’s mistakes have been paid for by everyone else. Liberal guilt is a funny thing. Teddy Kennedy had it. So did Byrd.

They just had to make up for their mistakes, but inconveniencing themselves or their personal fortune was not in their plans. So, all of America has been paying for the mistakes made by these people.

And because of Byrd’s KKK past, he was in the tank for the liberals on anything.

Byrd will be called a “great” man, a statesman, and all the accolades one normally reserves for a hero. But Senator Byrd was closer to robber baron than hero. Far closer.

To be sure, we should not celebrate his death. No, the preferred outcome would have been for Byrd to have stepped down years ago and stop robbing America.

Senator Byrd will be remembered. For generations. As it will take that long for our children and grandchildren to repay Byrd’s guilt taxes.

As The Other McCain put it:

He just became the best kind of Democrat, joining the sainted ranks of those who can no longer demagogue and pander their way to power, who no longer tax honest people into poverty so that their less industrious neighbors can be bribed with “free” government giveaways, and about whom even Republicans feel compelled to say nice things.

Stacy McCain is spot on!

Tom White Says:

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
