"Shamefully we now learn that Saddam's torture chambers reopened under new management, U.S. management." -Ted Kennedy "The war in Iraq itself has not made America safer and has not made the world safer." -Ted Kennedy "We have known for many years that Saddam Hussein is seeking and developing weapons of mass destruction." Ted Kennedy "Frankly, I don't mind not being President. I just mind that someone else is." -Ted Kennedy "Dad, I'm in some trouble. There's been an accident and you're going to hear all sorts of things about me from now on. Terrible things." -Ted Kennedy

Disgusting[edit]

I wasn't aware wikiquote was the place to post low partisan blows:

"Dad, I'm in some trouble. There's been an accident and you're going to hear all sorts of things about me from now on. Terrible things." -Ted Kennedy

Ted Kennedy says that our policy in Iraq is adrift. Hmmm. Maybe like a car adrift in the water after its has gone over a bridge?" -- Ann Coulter

and what does this web site have to do factual information on ted kennedy? : Web Site's for Ted. http://fatboy.cc/index.htm

  • Well, wikiquote is the place to post accurate quotes. There's a good chance that 'low partisan blows' are fabrications, or lacking context, and those should either be deleted, or corrected, or placed under 'misattributed' section if it's a common fabrication. As for negative (but accurate) quotes by other people in an 'about' section, that's OK in my humble opinion, and you can balance it by adding positive quotes there. iddo999 10:25, 21 December 2005 (UTC)
  • It seems to me low partisan blows and Ted Kennedy go hand in glove. Funny how some people get angry at a supposed quote, but not so angry at a drunken philanderer killing a woman and caring more about how he was going to get out of trouble.

Citation[edit]

"Dad, I'm in some trouble. There's been an accident and you're going to hear all sorts of things about me from now on. Terrible things." -Ted Kennedy

Is this an actual statment that was made (like is there a credible source)

Ann Coulter[edit]

I put on the end of the Ann Coulter quote 'I eat babies' but for some reason this was removed. I have no idea why this is. Ann Coulter is well known for ending every offensive remark she makes with her mission statement 'I eat babies'. Why was this removed?


I believe the Ann Coulter comment (and the satirical comment above concerning it) is of no value, written for no other purpose than to stimulate controversy and cast aspersions. I believe it (and this section, including my comment) should be removed.

Unsourced[edit]

Wikiquote no longer allows unsourced quotations, and they are in process of being removed from our pages (see Wikiquote:Limits on quotations); but if you can provide a reliable, precise and verifiable source for any quote on this list please move it to Ted Kennedy. --Antiquary 17:44, 12 August 2009 (UTC)

  • Come out of the rose garden.
  • Dad, I'm in some trouble. There's been an accident and you're going to hear all sorts of things about me from now on. Terrible things.
  • For two years, terrorist cells have been spreading like cancer cells. Any doctor who let that happen would be guilty of malpractice.
  • Frankly, I don't mind not being President. I just mind that someone else is.
  • Hello? Hello?!? Is this what we are debating here? (Senate floor comments during the 2005 Bankruptcy bill debate. Has been replayed numerous times on conservative Talk Radio programs.)
  • Integrity is the lifeblood of democracy. Deceit is a poison in its veins.
  • It's now clear that from the very moment President Bush took office, Iraq was his highest priority as unfinished business from the first Bush Administration. His agenda was clear: find a rationale to get rid of Saddam.
  • No matter how many times the Administration denies it, there is no question they misled the nation and led us into a quagmire in Iraq.
  • One of the few positive results of the Vietnam War is the irresistible momentum it gave Congress thirty-four years ago to pass legislation lowering the voting age to 18.
  • Shamefully we now learn that Saddam's torture chambers reopened under new management, U.S. management.
  • She [Vickie, his wife] was the most beautiful rose of all.
  • The Constitution does not just protect those whose views we share; it also protects those with whose views we disagree.
  • The President's handling of the war has been a toxic mix of ignorance, arrogance, and stubborn ideology. No amount of Presidential rhetoric or preposterous campaign spin can conceal the truth about the steady downward spiral in our national security since President Bush made the decision to go to war in Iraq.
  • The war in Iraq itself has not made America safer and has not made the world safer.
  • There is no doubt that Saddam Hussein's regime is a serious danger, that he is a tyrant, and that his pursuit of lethal weapons of mass destruction cannot be tolerated. He must be disarmed. (27 September 2002)
  • There was no imminent threat. This was made up in Texas, announced in January to the Republican leadership that war was going to take place and was going to be good politically. This whole thing was a fraud.
  • Thus, the controversy about the Moral Majority arises not only from its views, but from its name — which, in the minds of many, seems to imply that only one set of public policies is moral and only one majority can possibly be right.
  • Today, we say the only thing we have to fear is four more years of George Bush.
  • We have known for many years that Saddam Hussein is seeking and developing weapons of mass destruction. (27 September 2002)
  • We want to support our troops because they didn't make the decision to go there... but I don't think it should be open-ended. We ought to have a benchmark where the administration has to come back and give us a report.
  • Well, here I don't go again.
  • There are two ways to view the stars: as they really are and as we might wish them to be.
