Posted on 06/17/2012 10:48:05 AM PDT by ColdOne
In an email Sunday, Caroline Kennedy says she understands the hardships of balancing fatherhood with the presidency and said she admires the way that President Obama has managed it.
Kennedy, daughter of the late President John Kennedy, lent her name to an Obama campaign email sent out Sunday, recounting her own days growing up in the White House.
"To me, my dad was just that: a dad," Kennedy wrote. "I remember the bedtime stories -- he'd let me pick the subject (usually ponies), then make up a story on the spot."
"It wasn't until I got a lot older that I really understood what it meant that my father was the president," she wrote. "And it wasn't until I became a parent myself that I understood just how much he loved my brother and me."
"I've seen Barack Obama as a dad in the White House," Kennedy wrote. "It's just one of the things about President Obama I admire so much."

Give it up, Caroline. You’re still not getting the Senate gig.
"I'm Barack Obama, and I approved of this message."
Where’s the barf alert?
"Once upon a time there was a beautiful girl who had a pony named Merry Meg. One day, while the little girl was out riding Merry Meg she happened upon a charming young man named Ted ..."
That is not a statement by Caroline Kennedy, there is not one "Uh, you know" in it.
And then he'd run off to his latest sexcapade with his latest floozie.
Calling him “the amateur” misses the essence of this most dangerous of all presidents. I think David Limbaugh’s book is going to be much better. That’s on top of the pile to read next.
How did she turn out so stupid? How can she miss the fact that if the wrecking ball has his way, his children won’t have the glorious republic that the founders gave us?
Too many pony stories.
She’s doing some damage control to help their political party.
I got this e-mail (in 2008 I signed up for Barry’s e-mail alerts).
In the last few weeks, the stream of spam fom Camp O has been enormous. I get at least one a day, sometimes two.
I have to believe that his supporters, at some point, will start to delete these without even opening them.
Caroline is a dumbo but gonna cut her some slack. She lost her president father at a young age. She may be projecting here somewhat.
Did she mention that he was a, ya’ know, a brilliant, intelligent, ya’know, intellectual, ya’ know, really-really bright, ya’know, intelligence-off-the-charts, ya’know, Progressive-genius father as well?
Just asking, ya’know?
"Barack Obama may be well-intentioned. He may be a fine father. He may have an excellent jump shot. And he may be a first-rate community organizer. But as president, he is simply and by now almost undeniably overmatched by events. By Obamas own standards by what he said and by what he promised he is a failure"
Well someone had to wish him a happy fathers day. Travone sure isn’t going to.
yes, caroline you are an idiot.
The Kennedys: Brain dead, middle-aged trust babies.
Because the Kennedy family are experts on quality fathers, with so many examples going back to the adulterous, thieving, criminal patriarch. REAL men, honest, humble, faithful to their wives, hard-working and with integrity, who sacrifice all for the good of their families..... yeah, the Kennedy clan.
