New Obama Book Shocker: Kennedys and Obamas at War — Caroline Considers Obama a ‘Liar’
The Blaze ^ | 5/14/12 | Jonathan N. Seidl

Posted on 05/14/2012 4:38:53 PM PDT by Nachum

Despite endorsing Obama in 2008, JFK’s daughter Caroline now considers Obama a “liar,” according to a family source in Edward Klein’s new book on Obama called “The Amateur.” Caroline’s past support for Obama, which was mirrored by the late Sen. Ted Kennedy, caused a riff in the family. In fact, Klein writes of an incident where Bobby Kennedy Jr. got in his uncle Ted‘s face over Ted’s support for the president. Some of the Kennedy’s diminishing support for the president is due to the Obamas snubbing several members of the Kennedy family on multiple occasions — one that sent Ethel Kennedy on a furniture-turning rant. But despite the tension, both families know the Kennedys have no one else to support, and that “really pisses [Caroline] off.”

Back in 2008, Caroline Kennedy — the only surviving child of former President John F. Kennedy — delivered a rousing endorsement of Barack Obama. “I have never had a president who inspired me the way people tell me that my father inspired them,” she wrote in the New York Times back then. “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.”

That is indeed shocking - who knew that Caroline was smart enough to figure out (something that even small children can understand) that Obama is a liar...

Huh?

Is this some kind of Feng Shui joke?

Or is someone yinging my yang?

Typical Kennedy—gets hit in the face with a baseball bat and then “considers” the event having happened.

Old Joe was the last one what had a lick of sense and he was a mob connected bootlegger.

Bravo. Sierra.

It's racism pure and simple. Second only to alcoholism in the Kennedy clan.

Obama is not a liar. He’s an FGD liar. He is a liar of the deepest and most evil malice. The MF disgraces the WH.

It’s akin to a miracle that a kennedy can think at all, that one could have a moment of honest clarity concerning the marxist messiah is astounding.

That won’t change their votes, of course, but if emperor bammy could lose the mindless devotion of a kennedy...

The tabloids always personalize things, and love politics as catfight. As of January, Caroline was still sending out pro-Obama emails. As of March, she was still making personal appearances in support of Obama.

If this is true, though, it marks the end of a political cycle. 50 years ago the Kennedys were scornful of the weakness of the old WASP establishment, softies who had no more guts or clout and expected deference that they didn't deserve. Now they're establishment themselves, expecting honors and respect and influence without really earning them.

The Kennedys had a lot to do with Mr. Peanut only being a one-term President.

Ya' know, for a change, these overeducated -- ya' know, like -- MORONS could support the Constitution and the country. Ya' know.

Inbreeding is a genuine personal tragedy.

Gotta feel some sympathy for Caroline-she’s seen her share of Kennedy tragedies. On the other heand she’s a dumb box of rocks liberal. She shouldn’t take it so personal though. The Obama’s drive a huge bus and she shares plenty of company underneath it.

Wow, in addition to the Kennedy’s being drunken, slothful, misogynistic murders, they are now racists as well.

Oh, their being racist is nothing new. Pretty common knowledge. Boston is probably the most racist city in the country.

Duh! Buahahahahahahaha!

I remember the Kennedy Clan, Caroline in particular endorsing Obama as a presidential candidate, onstage publicly, on television.

Now she has second thoughts about Obama’s character?

I guess she is not copmp[letely dumb, and may she bring
millio9ns of Dems back into the circle of logical thinking based on fact.

But Duh? She has awakened about 4 years too late!

Buahahahahahahaha!

Took ‘em long enough - even without a Harvard education most people with simple common sense figured this out years ago.

Are you _hitting me? He thought Hitler was the best thing since slice bread. Roosevelt had to pull him out of the British embassy before he did or said anything more stupid with/about Hitler.

Joe (and he was not alone) was backing what he believed was going to be the winning horse—plus he hated the British guts and would have sided with Satan against them.

He was evil and misguided but he weren’t dumb.

“...caused a riff in the family.”

Uhhh....Mr. Seidl, “riff” is a musical term. I believe the word you wanted was “rift.”
