U.S. Senator, Edward Kennedy of Massachusetts, noticed some fishermen trapped on a jetty off Hyannisport when high tide came in. Thus giving another example to the GOP, on the real meaning of true Compassion.
Kennedy was walking his two dogs on the shore at 11:15 a.m. when he spotted the men cut off from shore by the rising waters. They had been fishing on a jetty that begins at the tip of the Kennedy compound.
Tides had risen over the patchy rocks, which made it difficult to walk back to shore.
Kennedy and a friend tried to rescue the men using a 13-foot boat but rough waters forced them back.
Lucky for the fishermen, who were eventually saved by the Hyannis Fire Department, that Bush was not the one to come upon the scene. I think we all know the effects of Bush and his “Help is on the way” promise.
Ted Kennedy put his life on the line for 6 strangers . Now that is a noble cause. To Bush a noble cause is risking the lives of our young men and women for a lie or outing an undercover CIA agent to protect that lie.
