Ernest Istook:  When Andrew Breitbart discovered his passion, he pursued it relentlessly.  Simply put, he hated bullies and made it his mission to expose them, in particular the bullying tactics of the left.  He relished challenging political correctness.

Beneath his aggressive exterior, Breitbart cared deeply for his family and friends and sought to protect them from what liberal bullying is doing to America.  His loyalty was immense.

Andrew was just as open about himself as the openness he asked of others.  When I invited him to lecture in a study group I taught at Harvard’s Institute of Politics, he not only embraced the opportunity but spent many extra hours with the students, infusing them with his passion.

Andrew Breitbart was unselfish with his time and energy.  His example and his leadership will be missed.  As Breitbart’s legacy, he would expect us to be bold.

Brian Darling: I am deeply saddened at the passing of Andrew Breitbart.  I met him when he was in the initial stages of setting up his Big Government web site and I was later approved to be a blogger for it.  Over the years, I would see him at events and we would chat.  We had made plans late last year to get together to discuss ways to take the fight to the left.

I was a regular panelist on Fox Business’ Follow the Money with Eric Bolling.  Andrew was on the show in early December of last year and I sent him an E-Mail about his interview on the show.  As usual, Andrew was a great guest and was very excited to make points about the failed policy of bailing out private enterprise.  I shot him an E-Mail making fun of “Government Motors” – the topic of the segment.  Andrew responded with “see ya next time I get to DC.  We need to touch base, scheme a bit!”  Sadly that was the last communication I had with Andrew.  I missed him at CPAC inWashington,DC a few weeks ago and will forever be saddened that I did not have one last chance to run into him to say hello and scheme.

He shall be missed.
