Do I care that she died? She was a great lady and was to be admired for her courage. Those that call her a drunken old hag are completely ignorant of her life. She publicly acknowledged her breast cancer and ultimate mastectomy at a time when society considered it impolite to discuss female or male body parts in public. As a result the Betty Ford Breast Clinics were established and without a doubt have saved many, many lives. She also went public about her addiction to pain killers and acoholol. She acquired financial backing to help set up her famous Betty Ford Rehabilitation Center in California. She took her negatives and turned them in major pluses. To quote our Gov..she was indeed and EXTRAORDINARY woman!! Her contributions to society were far beyond those of most first ladies. RIP beautiful lady.

There was way too much over-the-top media coverage of this woman's death. I mean, come on. There are more important things happening in the news, like this Caylee situation, for example.

She inspired me to get drunk and have as many abortions as possible at government expense. I will miss her terribly. Thank you Betty.

I wonder what all the negative commentators on here are attempting to accomplish other than venting their pent-up frustrations. And, wow, they must be really roiling with hate. If only they knew how they are perceived by others. Do they really believe Betty Ford admirers will be affected by their vitriol? My sympathy goes out to those hurting so much their greatest kick in life is to kick others in the teeth.

The judge it phantom is an example of bible belt, hellbent and whiskey bound incestuous breeding with a touch of barnyard lust thrown in.

And you know it's these same posers who will cry foul about 'speaking ill of the dead' when someone on their team buys the farm (I still remember all the phony outrage from the left when Senator Kennedy died and a few people had the nerve to mention Chappaquiddick). As usual, they maintain one standard for themselves and a separate one for others, hypocrites that they are.
