Why do people dislike Ted Kennedy?

I have had the opportunity to meet and mingle with Ted, but only aboard his "Mia" racing against Max!

I met Roary and Ted on the launch back into the dock in Hyannis Port! Roary's the last child born from Robert.....Later I was invited to sail aboard Mia, but I felt awkward and declined the invitation. Ted looked healthy and probably had been reformed fom booze for some time!

I have lived on Cape Cod all my life and based on my trade, it was inevitable that I should meet the Kennedys...I also have worked rebuilding Max Kennedy's Wianno Senior while at Pease Boat Works of Chatham...

My impression of the Kennedy's was that they are caring...non lieing people, not phonies! BB

RE: Why do people dislike Ted Kennedy?

Like most people from the Commonwealth, you have been sucked into the Kennedy=Royalty crowd.

Sure they are all personable people, so long as they get their way. Try crossing them and I'm sure you will feel the wrath.

They all have trust funds derived from illegal bootlegging money. None of them have had to work for a living. Teddy has been a career Senator and will retire (if he ever does) with 100% pension. His son is following in his footsteps.

Other Kennedy's create non profit organizations to run. Groups like Best Buddies in Florida and Citizen's Energy. Typically these companies are great step off points for running for office.

Yes, "Citizens" a Robert Kennedy operation to give people heating fuel at a lower cost was purly for political gains............................................. ...........................or was he?

My parents who do know him are appauled...yes they are Democrats, but are smart..........paint the picture in whatever...........

Say OK to George Bush to justify the obvious most stupid president this nation has ever elected! And if you are still questioning why, get counseling, you have obviously missed a crucial element of life still needed for understanding................

He killed someone and got away with it... And his radical liberal political views along.
