Robert Kennedy Jr. Says Family Members Are Wrong in Supporting Obama

May 01, 2008 6:41 PM

ABC News' Eloise Harper Reports: Introducing Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., in Jeffersonville, IN, Robert Kennedy Jr. had some pretty harsh words for his family members who are backing Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., for president.

"There are some members of my family who've decided to do the wrong thing, support Senator Obama," he said of the Democratic presidential fight.

Kennedy continued, "Part of our family is divided and our Party is divided and the reason we are divided is because we have two extraordinary candidates both running for president both who will make unbelievable presidents of this country."

Continuing his argument, Kennedy said, "but let me tell you why they’re wrong and I’m right, because I know Hillary Clinton better than they know Barack Obama," said Kennedy to a loud applause.

Massachusetts Senator Ted Kennedy and Caroline Kennedy adopted Obama as a "Son of Camelot" back in January.

Kennedy went on to speak about the attacks that Sen. Clinton received while in office saying, "she came in after enduring one of the most savage beatings of a public figure during my lifetime with people like Ken Star going spending 40 million dollars going after her relentlessly with billionaires like Richard Mellon Scaife and his whole right wing machine that sent out hundreds of millions of letters to American citizens going after her relentlessly."

I can just imagine the rituals involved in that ceremony.

Political aspirations
In an interview in O, The Oprah Magazine, Kennedy hinted that he would run for the position of United States Senator from New York if Hillary were to win the 2008 Presidential election that, saying “If Hillary left the Senate, I might run for that seat.” This was seen by Democratic observers as “a blunt warning to possible rivals.”[36] The Robert Kennedy Jr. Exploratory Committee is looking to run RFK Jr. for the US Senate seat in the State of Connecticut.

Kennedy legacy
1983 arrest
In 1983, he was arrested in a Rapid City South Dakota Airport for heroin possession. A search of his carry-on bag uncovered 183 milligrams of the drug.[3] Upon entering a plea of guilty, Kennedy, then 30 years old, was sentenced to two years probation, periodic tests for drug use, treatment by joining Narcotics Anonymous, and 1,500 hours of community service by Presiding Judge Marshall P. Young.[4]

The only extraordinary thing about Obama is what an extraordinary phony he is.

RFK Jr. was the demagogue who called all of those of us who question the validity of man made global warming “TRAITORS”.

He’d line us up against the wall in the name of political expediency.

And if both Democrat candidates are so FABULOUS, why is it the “wrong” choice for some Kennedys to back Obama?

They are unbelievable candidates alright. TWO marxists, one of them certain to get the nomination. And both LIE.

Nice of Robby to dig at Scaiff. He met with Bill Clinton last year and the two had a good laugh.

Meanwhile we aren’t supposed to mention George Soros, Billionaire. He owns a mansion, and a yacht, and a media watchdog group that deliberately quotes conservatives out of context (including attributing quotes they are reading to the reader even when they immediately denounce the passage in the next sentence).

If RFK Sr. were still alive, you think he’d have bugged Obama’s phones by now?

Bobby would have arranged for Obama to pick up an explosive abalone while snorkeling off Bimini.

Gee, killing an innocent girl, raping another, drowning another, these don’t cause any divisions in the Kennedy family. But backing Obama, that’s unforgivable.

If Hillary were really the smartest woman in the world, she would tell this moron, no thanks for his support. She would get more votes than what she’d lose by turning her back on an endorsement by the whining flake.

Oh, man! This is getting good!!

Not only are the Dems divided over Obama/Clinton, so are the Kennedys.

Happy times in Hyannis this summer... /s

Oh that is so gross. The whole "Camelot" thing has been revealed to be a made up fraud. I can't believe people still use it as a metaphor.

Bugs: "What a maroon! What a nin-cow-poop!"

RFK Jr.'s use of the words "extraordinary" and "unbelievable" is richly ironic, IMHO...
