DNC Tribute to Ted Kennedy Hits Romney with His Own Words: VIDEO


A DNC video tribute to the late Senator Ted Kennedy broadcast on Tuesday night showcased Kennedy's broad range of progressive positions (including his support for LGBT rights) and carried as its centerpiece a debate in which Kennedy destroyed Romney during his unsuccessful run for Senate in 1994.

Said Kennedy in the debate: "I am pro-choice. Mitt Romney is multiple choice."

Watch the video and its searing jab at Romney, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. Loved this video and thought it was brilliant, but it really did make me miss my former Senator.

  3. Ted Kennedy was a giant. One of the greatest Senators in the history of our Republic. He had some major flaws to be sure. On balance he achieved far more good than bad. As an Irish American, I am so proud that he came out of our rich cultural heritage.

  4. A great leader. He achieved so many good things for us. He is greatly missed.....

  5. That was well done. The Lion of the Senate is missed, he had a magical touch for getting both sides to work together, we need more of that in Congress.

  6. The debate portion needs to be made into an ad NOW! I mean, how bad do you have to suck, that you are trounced by a guy who's DEAD.

  7. That debate footage- Rpmney was just as evasive back in 1994 as he is now.

  8. What a sleaze bag. And a master "flip-flopper," to use a term his cohorts coined for Kerry.

    "I was for rational health care (bid for MA Senator) before I was against it" (Tea Party bid for US President).

    "I was for a woman's right to choose (bit for MA Senator) before I was against it" (Tea Party bid for US Presidency).

    Pretty much any view - he was for it as a MA governor/senator candidate, then against it as a 2012 presidential candidate. And willing to flat out lie to make his point. What a sleazebag.

    It goes on and on. Will his starry-eyed Tea Party supporters ever question him on his former (pre-presidential bid) stances? I thought not. I'm looking forward to the debates. Obama - this is your big chance. PLEASE don't pull any punches!

  9. Ted Kennedy was the kind of politician this country needed, but unfortunately very few can walk in his footsteps.
