Whatever happened to Camelot? Dishevelled Kennedy clan look less than picture-perfect

Complete Headline: Whatever happened to Camelot? Dishevelled Kennedy clan look less than picture-perfect celebrating Fourth of July on Cape Cod

The Kennedy clan congregated at their Cape Cod estate for a July Fourth family celebration of patriotic proportions.

Participating in a village parade at Hyannisport, where the family's waterfront compound resides, numerous Kennedys dressed up in stars and stripes, wigs and comical presidential-style hats to celebrate Independence Day with vigor.

But the golden era of America's great political dynasty seems to be a distant memory; decades on, the family far from resembles the sartorially picture-perfect images of Jackie and JFK vacationing in the very same Massachusetts spot.


Joan Bennett Kennedy ... Patches Kennedy


Ted Kennedy Jr. ... Ethel Kennedy

Actually the clan looks as good as ever ... especially considering all the time they've spent in rehab!

Whatever happened to Camelot?

Absolutely nothing "happened" to it because it never existed. It was all media-created BS to be shoveled down the throats of the public.

Of course, my Lib extended family members still get all misty-eyed and nostalgic over "Crapalot".

Murderers,heroin addicts,tax evaders,worthless slime...that's what the Kennedys are.You look back to JFK and you see that,as a President,he was fairly good.Listen to his speeches and compare them to more recent Kennedy speeches.

Yes even liberal progressives suffer the wrath of thier own beliefs. This is a good thing. So called “Camelot” lived and died with JFK, the the media and adoring fans needed the fantasy to continue. Todays Kennedy camelot is compared to the local circus coming to town.

JFK had his yacht to sail, Odungo has AF One. JFK liked the Oval Office, Odungo can’t stand it. Kennedy used golf as a way to make deals, Odungo uses golf as a way to escape. Kennedy could speak at the drop of a hat, Odungo needs six speech writers,two teleprompters and a captured, or bussed in audience with free box lunch and SEIU promised “paid” day off.

Ted Kennedy alcohol free for TWO years!

This is what happens when the press gloss over
the truth to favor their candidate. Eventually
time and truth expose the whole rotten lie, and
it works both ways too. GWB will continue to look
better and better as history reveals the reality
of his presidency.
One can’t even imagine what history will show us
about the WON.

“But the golden era of America's great political dynasty seems to be a distant memory...”

Good riddance.

Camelot was a product of an America largely limited to the narrative created by the 3 broadcast networks - ABCCBSNBC. It was a lie from the beginning.

Truth is, the Kennedy fortune was made by bootlegging during prohibition. JFK was a serial adulterer, a coward that abandoned the Bay of Pigs invaders & barely avoided a nuclear war with the USSR. His brother was a drunken murderer. His nephew a rapist. Another nephew has recently abandoned he mentally ill wife, leaving her impoverished, to date an actress. The poor woman committed suicide.

Without all that bootlegging money, the Kennedys would have been low class tenement trash. As it is, they are still low class trash.

Kennedy also hated Marxism, and spoke about the American philosophy of how American’s rights come from God in his inaugural address.

I tell libs that today Kennedy might even be considered a Republican, it drives them crazy to hear that.

Were they trying to have a Tea Party?

Remember when the media was trashing Tea Partiers for donning colonial garb - even Glenn Beck joined in.

I hear Taylor Swift was hanging with the corrupt Kennedy clan over the Holiday. She thinks Ethel is a saint. I think it’s safe to say she is starting to lose her way. Hooking up with John Mayer is further evidence.

DURING THE WHOLE of a dull, dark, and soundless day in the autumn of the year, when the clouds hung oppressively low in the heavens, I had been passing alone, on horseback, through a singularly dreary tract of country; and at length found myself, as the shades of the evening drew on, within view of the melancholy House of Kennedy.

The bootlegging money was peanuts compared his collusion and causing the Stock Market Crash of ‘39. It’s estimated he made a $Billion shorting bank stocks as the collapsed one after another.

He then designed the SEC to make sure that wasn’t done by anyone else. The entire Camelot facade was invented by him and the media. They were what the commie libs project as evil rich people.

Pray for America

I read a news story written back in the mid 90s about how the Kennedys are still rich but not as much as they used to due to there being more Kennedys now than ever diluting their fortune. The report had calculations that within the next few decades, there will only be a couple of rich Kennedys left, but plenty with the name.

Exactly.JFK issued a challenge to Western apologists of the USSR with the words "let them come to Berlin".OsamaObama would have apologized to the Soviets.JFK stated "will we support *any* friend,oppose *any* foe"....Osama would have transposed "support" and "oppose".
