R.I.P. – Former Vice President Walter Mondale Passes Away at Age 93

“served as Minnesota attorney general from 1960 to 1964 and as its U.S. senator from 1964 to 1976”

Walter Mondale served as vice president under Jimmy Carter and lost the 1984 presidential election to Ronald Reagan in a landslide.

He passed away last night at the age of 93.

Thomas Barrabi reports at FOX News:

Former Vice President Walter Mondale dies at 93

Walter Mondale, a former vice president and progressive icon who once staged an unsuccessful bid to unseat Republican rival Ronald Reagan for the presidency, died Monday at age 93.

Mondale’s family said in a statement that he died in Minneapolis, the Associated Press reported. No cause of death was given.

Mondale served as Minnesota attorney general from 1960 to 1964 and as its U.S. senator from 1964 to 1976. Later, he served as running mate and eventual vice president to former President Jimmy Carter from 1977 to 1981.

“Today I mourn the passing of my dear friend Walter Mondale, who I consider the best vice president in our country’s history,” Carter said in a statement. “During our administration, Fritz used his political skill and personal integrity to transform the vice presidency into a dynamic, policy-driving force that had never been seen before and still exists today.”

“He was an invaluable partner and an able servant of the people of Minnesota, the United States, and the world. Fritz Mondale provided us all with a model for public service and private behavior. Rosalynn and I join all Americans in giving thanks for his exemplary life, and we extend our deepest condolences to his family,” the statement added.

History buffs will recall the ‘drop the mic’ moment Reagan had with Mondale during a presidential debate:

What a very different time this was in American politics.

Rest in peace, Mr. Mondale.

This is what the dems deprived us of this year, our landslide.

Trash.

Mondale knew how to unite the country.

    49 electoral votes’ worth, at least.

    I still remember as a teenager, watching the election results and how jaw droppingly one sided it was. I don’t think I’ll ever see something like that in my lifetime.

Fritz and titz!

I notice none of the comments are like the sick detritus the left puts up when people like Limbaugh die.
