Oh, it is so hard to believe that Andrew Breitbart is dead! What a shock! There are nasty mean tweets out there on his passing. Shame on those people who are doing that. Liberal lefty Donna Brazile tweeted the following:
“Andrew Breitbart was a conservative political combatant who was unafraid of his critics. We battled on and off the air, but he was a genius.”
Now that was respectful coming from a person who opposed Mr. Breitbart.
Andrew Breitbart had no fear. He was the conservative who would come on lefty type programs like Bill Maher’s Real Time. He was the conservative who did interviews on cable news stations other than Fox News. He was the conservative with a wonderful conservative news website. Most importantly, he was the great conservative investigative journalist. His investigations into ACORN brought it down. Mr. Breitbart’s investigation into former Rep. Anthony Weiner, made the married Mr. Weiner confess that he lied about being hacked and that his sex based tweets to other women, especially the photo tweet of his private part, true. Reports are out that Mr. Breitbart had astonishing video on Pres. Obama during his college years that he was holding back until this fall. When people on the left would try to ambush him in public, he go right back at them and then some with the facts.
I did flip-flop on the Shirley Sherrod controversy, but finally grounded myself on his side. I told him so on his Facebook page. His response to me was very touching. I saw him in person at the Uni-TEA in Philly 2 summers ago. Here he is at CPAC 2012.
My condolences to Andrew Breitbart’s family. Oh, will he be missed!
