Skip to comments.(They deserve eachother:) Obama Double-Crossed Kennedy Family
Posted on 06/08/2012 1:47:21 AM PDT by Publius804
Ed Kleins blockbuster new best-seller about President Barack Obama chronicles Obamas insulting snubs of staunch supporter Caroline Kennedy, the sole surviving child of President John F. Kennedy.
Caroline even become so disgusted by Obama she called him a liar and worse.
Kleins just-released book Amateur: Barack Obama in the White House skyrocketed to the No. 1 spot on the New York Times best-seller list in its first week in publication and has remained there for the third week in a row.
Klein offers surprising behind-the-scenes details about Obama and First Lady Michelle Obamas relationship with Caroline and other members of the Kennedy clan.
Like Oprah Winfrey, Caroline Kennedy is among the high-profile Democrats who have been largely frozen out of the White House, in part due to protective senior adviser Valerie Jarrett, Klein discloses.
During the 2008 primary campaign, Caroline enthusiastically supported Obama, comparing him to her father JFK. She and her uncle, Senator Ted Kennedy, broke long standing ties to Bill and Hillary Clinton to strongly back Obama in the contested 2008 Democratic primary.
Caroline even described Obama as the heir to her fathers political legacy, writing, I have never had a president who inspired me the way people tell me that my father inspired them. But for the first time, I believe I have found the man who could be that president not just for me, but for a new generation of Americans.
And Caroline and Sen. Kennedys support even caused a rupture in the Kennedy clan, known for its tight family bond.

If one TENTH of this is true....YEAH!!!
So, now that the Kennedys proved they're not racists...
None of this should surprise anyone.
This is just an attempt to separate the Kennedy family from the “next Kennedy”; these dirtbags tripped arse over elbow to jump on the bandwagon, now they’re scrambling for parachutes.
There is nothing positive about conceding you helped a con man hoodwink America, especially in light of the damage he has done in three and a half years.
Moochelle on "how badly the Kennedy women dressed"!!??? LOL! I hold no brief for the Kennedys, but I can't remember any Kennedy woman ever appearing in public other than tastefully dressed -- as opposed to the truly bizarre and vulgar get-ups Moochelle favors!
Try to hang the ‘racist’ label on Bill Clinton and that’s outrageous. Try to hang the racist label on all GOP pols and half of the country and that’s just good ol’ Democrat politics.
Still, it’s nice to see the infighting make the press.
That says it all.
"Hes a liar and worse.
What about Uncle Teddy, Caroline?
They care more about being accepted in the Democratic social circle than the good of the country. She got what she deserved.
IIRC, I’m pretty sure Michelle and Valerie also have an anti-Irish bias after working for and then being dismissed by the Daley’s in Chicago. Something about Michelle and Valerie hating the control all those Irish pols had in Chicago.
Thats how I look at it as well. Obama needs to be hung arround the necks of democrats, all of them, for as long as a hot summer day lasts, like a piece of stinking rotting meat.
There is no longer any democrat I want to have a cup of coffee or a cold beer with. None.
“There is no longer any democrat I want to have a cup of coffee or a cold beer with. None.”
I understand; I don’t even make small talk with the libs I can’t avoid (such as at work). They are pawns in a dangerous game they themselves don’t even understand.
Liberals. Can’t live with them, and...
can’t live with them. That’s all.
The man who would not be King....
In May 1782, Colonel Lewis Nicola wrote to Washington He reviewed the different forms of government and arrived at the conclusion that republics were the least stable of governments, and the least capable of protecting the freedoms that they were fighting for. He went on to write that he had little hope that the United States would prosper under such a form of government and that the English Constitutional Monarchy was as near perfect a political system as could be created by mortal man. He continued by writing that the American people would be more comfortable with that familiar form of government and added:
It must have come as a surprise to the Colonel and his confederates when they received a prompt and severe rebuke for their efforts. Washingtons response was:
Colonel Nicola, spokesperson for his fellow officers, handed Washington the opportunity to become King! Yet, without hesitation it was turned down in no uncertain terms. A truly lasting tribute to his patriotic character.
The Kennedy’s get no sympathy. Mary Jo waited years for her revenge. Grab the popcorn and enjoy the show.
Oh Poor Caroline.....Boo Hoo Hoo....Go away....
It could not have happened to a nicer guy.
Agree. The first sign of acting like an adult is taking responsibility for your actions.
Obama is a Communist, and so is everyone he associates with. They have a history of using people and spitting them out. The Dems have played with the Devil and now they are surprised the Devil is a liar and worse. Wow.
It is strange that the black incumbents consider the Irish as a tribe. Most multiple-generation white citizens consider themselves to be Americans first. Labels have mostly disappeared because of ‘white tribe’ intermarriage.
I don’t have any idea how blacks view their tribal status.
Hispanics are very tribal. If you go to a boxing match, you would be loathe to find a Mexican rooting for a Puerto Rican against a Mexican unless there was a chunk of money involved. Looney city in Hispanic soccer fandom.
Democrats aren't supposed to lie to other in-the-loop Democrats.
Hilarious!! Read it!!
IMHO ‘Pawns’ = useful idiots.
I thought it was the other way around; that it was Clinton telling Ted that this upstart would be serving us coffee. Clinton was upset that Ted was endorsing Obama, and he let Ted have it.
Me, too! I recently went back to California for a few weeks. Saw my oldest friend there and she told me she is an independent but she always votes Dem. Then she said, “I am no Tea Partier.” So I said, “Well, I AM a Tea Partier,” and my cousin piped in, “I’m a Tea Partier, too!” That prompted me to say we’d better not talk politics as things might get heated.
Since 2008, I had put all known libs out of my life, including my brother-in-law. Can’t stand to be around anyone stupid enough to vote for Dems. It’s a good thing she is 3000 miles away because I would hate to have to avoid her, too. But for the life of me, I can’t understand how supposedly intelligent, kind, decent people continue voting for the party of evil!
I have a book about Ethel Kennedy and it goes into detail about what a mess her house was. Dog feces on the floor during formal parties and just general nastiness.
You would think she would have hired housekeepers.
No sympatahy for caroline. I remember how ungracious she was to Laura Bush when they were auctioning off some of her mothers clothes. Hillary came in late dressed in some tiger print and caroline gushed all over her.
The only democrat I would like to have lunch with is Truman. He called them as he saw them especially when they were writting crap about his daughter....Ed Koch sometimes hits the nail on the head...he took the dems/media to task for the way they treated Sarah Palin in one of his columns. Sometimes he can be honest in his remarks but is a loyal, thinking democrat, far from perfect but in todays age calles them as he see’s them at times...
President Washington didn't mince words did he?
Where is Zell Miller these days??
Your right, Zell Miller above them all....loved his interview with Chrissy, really put that idiot in his place...
Infighting between the Demon seeed. I love it.
It became even more bizarre when people who were liberal at 20 were still liberal at 40; with the exception of the few public school teachers I know (who are laughing all the way to the bank), most people have grown up by the time they’re 40. After that, I’d expect only government workers, homosexuals/deviants, and any unassimilated permanently- dependent minorities (who contribute nothing to the cost of liberal programs) to be “liberal”.
There is no longer any democrat I want to have a cup of coffee or a cold beer with. None.
Except for one old Marine from Georgia who said that he would die a Democrat! I will always remember him for telling Chrissy Matthews that he wished we lived in a different time so he could call Matthews out for a duel. I would gladly buy Zell Miller a case of the finest beer made and count myself honored to drink one with him. Please don’t tell me anything bad about Zell, I want to die remembering him only as the old man who slapped Chris Matthews down on national television.
BoD of NRA among other things.
Caroline sounds like a stupid sycophant. What a whore for the Dems.
A couple of times when flowers would be delivered to Joan Kennedy and she wasn't home, the flowers would be left on the front porch.
I'm told they stopped doing that because Ethel would take them.
If Miller is who I think he is, I can’t for the life of me understand why he didn’t switch parties.
I think he was so close to retirement that he figured it wasn’t worth it.
FReepers said at the time he just needed publicity for a book; I tend to believe them.
It would have made a difference if he switched; it tells me a lot that he didn’t. Being close to retirement simply means he would face no consequences if he HAD switched.
This is my take on Caroline. She actively endorsed Obama with the idea that she would fill Clinton’s senate seat. Her kids are older now and the poor little rich girl needs a hobby. She’s furious that didn’t work out for her and blames Obama. And he was MIA, but in reality, she should blame it on the fact that she came across as an stammering idiot in interviews. Just my opinion.
I specifically asked you in a nice way to please not tell me anything bad about Zell! Can’t you leave an old man one illusion to cherish? I probably won’t live more than another twenty years or so. That is if any of us live that long with all the crap that is going on now.
