Skip to comments.Caroline Kennedy praises Obama as a father
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.
OK you wrinkled ugly bitch....whatever you say.....
Kennedy women...always on their knees.
Coming from a nitwit like her that must mean so much. /s
“Progressive” liberal ‘RATS just can’t help themselves. They’re always ready to make dumb, adoring statements for other ‘RAT politicians.
CK is obviously an asshole
>>”I remember the bedtime stories — he’d let me pick the subject (usually ponies), then make up a story on the spot.”<<
And then he would go and kiss the nice blonde lady in the hallway I could see while the door was closing...
Quoting Megan McCain, were you? ;-)
I don’t want a father in the White House. I want a mean SOB in the White House...a Duke Nukem...someone ready to kick some ass when Achmadinejad gets too lippy.
Yep - he has balanced his kids and the presidency.
Except when there are cameras around he ignores them both equally and plays golf.
If 0bama had a white daughter she would look like Caroline .
She never understood why he always ended up having sex with the ponies?
She is still seeing things from the viewpoint of a young child. She is still stuck in the fairy tale world of Camelot. It is obvious that she refuses to see the truth about Obama. Or, perhaps, she is just dense when it comes to economics.
She must be given a pass in several areas due to the history of what has happened in her family. But, when she defends Obama .... and campaigns for him .... she is then hurting MY family and that is where I draw the line.
Neil Cavuto, last Friday did the same routine about Obama being a great father!!! I love Cavuto, but.....on this one, he has been smoking funny stuff!!! Obama is not a father for the nation to follow, even though he is a good father to his children. Problem is, he wants to destroy all fathers and mothers so we can raise a society of pitchers and catchers!!! Neil, you should be ashamed of yourself. Caroline Kennedy, I understand. Poor girl is not the sharpest knife in the drawer and....the fathers in the Kennedy family are only there to be ashamed of, useless parents that they were and are!!!
Really good fathers would prioritize time with children over excessive golf
Is he really a father? Perhaps Larry Sinclair has input here.
Exactly....Before that fat turd Ted died...the family was in turmoil over Ted's endorsement of The Kenyan.
Pretty much the entire family hated the Obama, except for Ted and Caroline...
Caroline was eventually turned off by the way she was treated by the Obama...like a second class citizen unlike she was used too...
I'm sure she has to swallow an handful of Valium to actually say something positive about The Kenyan
Caroline is blinded....
I miss John-John.
I agree with her, and I hope he gets a chance to be a full-time father starting January 20, 2013. His daughters are reaching the age when they need a dad actively involved in their lives so they won’t do something stupid with a boy their age and get punished with . . .
Boy she’s know all about that since she was 6 yo when her father died and she was in the white house....*eyeroll* Still doesn’t understand she was a political prop does she?
“If 0bama had a white daughter she would look like Caroline.”
Well, if he had a much older sister, she’d look like CK.
How would she know how he has managed it? She is persona non grata in Obamaworld.
More drivel from the maw of a libtard Kennedy. When will they just shut up and go away and leave us alone?
And yet she sounds like a moron.
If she were in her 20s that would be one thing. However, this dingbat has had five decades to grow up and work through her trauma and other issues. She is stuck in her fairy tale world intentionally, because she'd rather not be held accountable for her idiotic thoughts, deeds, and entitlement mentality. She is a child by choice. IOW, a typical Rat. She needs to go pet a pony and quit pestering the adults.
Heard a snippet of Bill Cunningham's show on Sunday night and he was doing the same thing. These country destroying pigs don't deserve any praise.
