Like most, I am totally stunned and deeply saddened by Andrew's passing. He was a wonderful person and patriot. He loved his family and country. I will miss him. Many of us will. Andrew had enormous energy and courage. He was a pioneer. He was only 43 years old. I wish I had known him longer. The last time I was with Andrew was in November, when we both spoke in Washington at an Americans for Prosperity event, where Occupy DC was outside the convention center making all kinds of accusations and bullying people. Andrew loved the battle and he knew the stakes. May he rest in peace. May his family find peace. May God bless him.

From Matt Drudge
DEAR READER: In the first decade of the DRUDGEREPORT Andrew Breitbart was a constant source of energy, passion and commitment. We shared a love of headlines, a love of the news, an excitement about what's happening. I don't think there was a single day during that time when we did not flash each other or laugh with each other, or challenge each other. I still see him in my mind's eye in Venice Beach, the sunny day I met him. He was in his mid 20's. It was all there. He had a wonderful, loving family and we all feel great sadness for them today...

The last thing I remember about Mr. Breitbart was hearing him discuss his dinner with Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn at a luxury Chicago apartment building owned by some of their friends, and his description of their talents as hosts and chefs amazed Fox News interviewer Eric Bolling.

Shortly afterwards, Andrew Breitbart announced that he had obtained a video of Obama which he planned to show during the general election that would reveal Obama as a true radical.

People like him are rare, true warriors who love what they do and are extremely good at it. They don't come around that often. They can't be replaced.
