What in the world would possess a woman of Caroline’s stature to make such a fool of herself? Is she standing on the precipice of a nervous breakdown?
Once the darling of Americans nationwide, it seems for reasons unknown (speculation doesn’t count) Caroline Kennedy Schlossberg is having her druthers in which direction to turn. Had Jackie been alive, she would have told Caroline “STAY AWAY” from the sewer of Politics. That was Jackie’s mandate for John Jr. She built an insular bubble around her children with what else….MONEY! Is that a sin… No, I don’t think so. Is it a smart thing to do? You bet it is.
I remember reading Jackie’s biography where she was told by her attorney and confidante handing her financial affairs after she asked him, “How am I doing financially?”
He turned to her and said, “Jackie, you have ONE more shopping trip left, then you are BROKE!”
I can just see Jackie’s jaw dropping at the horror of it all thinking, how will I protect my children from the onslaught of access by the sharks and jackals just waiting to get at my children? She knew it was a sheer impossibility. The Kennedy Klan were not forthcoming with gobs of money keeping Jackie in the style she was accustomed-to. After all, Joe Kennedy Sr was still master at the helm. He never quite got over Jack’s death and was in a terrible state of depression unable to think about anything else except what might have been-
I doubt Caroline has ever given it a second thought how smart her mother was about the dirty game of Politics. Or how Jackie outwitted the political sewage at every turn because she cared so deeply for her children.
I’ve said this before in anther post. Caroline ought to read a few biographies written about her mother. Jackie wasn’t just a women who appreciated the nice things money could buy, the museum benefit socializing crowd, the poetry, editing books, updating the White House decor. Jackie was a woman of the World. She didn’t have it easy, coming from a broken home torn between her mother and father.
Learn from your mother Caroline, not from the political bent of man so out of step with morality he’s gone over the cliff. This is just the first time, you got to experience Uncle Teddy’s idea of a joy ride!
