    Rep. Kennedy to bow out, spelling end to family era

    Rep. Kennedy to bow out, spelling end to family era - The Boston Globe

    WASHINGTON - US Representative Patrick Kennedy has decided not to seek reelection, capping a dramatic year for the Kennedy family and probably leaving it without a member in Washington for the first time in more than six decades.

    Kennedy made the decision based on “some personal struggles,’’ including the death in August of his father, Edward M. Kennedy, according to a Democratic official briefed on the decision. The official spoke on the condition of anonymity because Patrick Kennedy has not yet made a formal announcement.

    ...

    Unless another Kennedy decides to run for Congress and wins, Patrick Kennedy’s decision will mean that a Kennedy family member, or close associate, will not be serving in Congress next year for the first time since 1947.
    Did NOT see this coming. Wow.

    Patrick can now turn his attention to full time substance abuse with the inheritance form father Ted and his huge pension from the being in the house he never has to do anything work related ever. After all it's not like he ever did.

    I do think that being a substance abuser extraordinaire does eminently qualify him for any position within the Obama administration. He would fit right in with the Socialists, radicals, Commies, and convicted felons and fellow drug abusers, that Obama likes to have around the White House.

    Dropped out because he was getting whooped in the polls. LOL

    I tell ya, you've got to REALLY screw up to lose as a Democrat in New England with Kennedy as your last name, or to fill a long-held Kennedy seat.

    I'm stunned.

    patrick's a punk, as bad as his dad

    all the dui's, all the rehabs

    the time the dc police drove him home and put him to bed, covering him up like chappaquiddick

    the time he abandoned the rental he wrecked as if she were christened, "the kopechne"

    2009 was teddy's ta ta, 2009 was health care, 2009 was massachusetts

    kennedy's got crunched

    the founder was a rum running nazi symp

    the president got humiliated at bay of pigs, schooled at vienna by kruschev, stood off the soviets magnificently around cuba, launched the dream to the moon, escalated our presence in nam, and economically jfk was one of the biggest and most successful supply side tax cutters of the 20th century, before being martyred in dallas

    the president was also personally a pig, almost immeasurably immoral, immature, mindless of the consequences of his selfishness

    just like his dad, just like his youngest brother

    are any of you old enough to remember the lion's primary challenge against smiley jimmy carter in 80?

    LOL!

    what a joke, it had only been 11 years

    and he actually WON a dozen states, including california, new york, pennsylvania, new jersey...

    NO standards, progressives

    shame

    kennedy arrogance, kennedy presumption, kennedy elitism and entitlement, kennedy corruption, kennedy vice...

    have you no decency, sir

    did you know ROBERT clerked for tailgunner joe, wisconsin's red baiting mccarthy?

    like i said, gramps was a real peach

    You should change that political lean tag.
