NOTHING Sweet about Caroline!! The Queen has spoken!

“I wouldn’t be here if I didn’t think I would be the best,” Mrs. Schlossberg said.

aka…the Rude, the Crude and Pretentious, Pompous Perpetrator of Paterson’s appointment to the NY Senate Seat! Kennedy-Schlossberg!

This is a Jim Dandy read from the NYT… If this doesn’t get your blood boiling. Then you are dead but don’t know it yet!

NYTimes Link

“After weeks of criticism that she had not opened up to the public or the press, Ms. Kennedy has embarked on a series of interviews..

Facing a somewhat delicate task, where she is not running for office but seeking an appointment to an impending vacancy, Mrs. Schlossberg avoided questions about the other possible contenders, saying she did not want to criticize them. She praised Mrs. Clinton, but said it was too soon to say how she could improve on Mrs. Clinton’s performance as a senator. She said she had been personally affected by the economic crisis but sidestepped questions about her wealth, declining to say how much money she lived on each year.

Typical Caroline. Make a statement and never explain what you mean.

“This is the opportunity that’s presenting itself right now, and I’m interested if the governor thinks that I could do a good job and help New York and help him,” Ms. Kennedy said.”

And where the word “OPPORTUNIST” exactly came from…

“Ms. Kennedy said she had spoken “throughout this process” with Andrew M. Cuomo, the attorney general, who is a contender for the job himself and is divorced from Ms. Kennedy’s cousin Kerry Kennedy. There are at least half a dozen other serious contenders for the job, including Thomas R. Suozzi, the Nassau County executive, and Representatives Carolyn B. Maloney and Kirsten E. Gillibrand.”

Yes, Mrs. Schlossberg, we know. You picked Cuomo’s brain for any and all the information to bluff your way through the process… (Just so you know…it’s not working!)

“I’m not a conventional choice,” Ms. Kennedy said. “I haven’t followed the traditional path, but I do think I’d bring a kind of a lifetime of experience that is relevant to this job.”

Mrs. Schlossberg, you are NOT even in the running FOR a Choice. You are trying to prove to your-self and Governor Paterson New Yorkers will like and appreciate you and be a plus when Paterson is running for his appointed seat.

Truth be known, you will be a Jonah around his neck in 2 yrs and he will sorely regret appointing you when he had the chance to cut you loose with little pain, now!.

NY’ers are WAY AHEAD of YOU, because they think with their minds not emotion. If Paterson choses you over any other of the really qualified candidates, they will exact their revenge on Paterson in two years..and he will be swept out of office with the force of a tsunami and so will YOU!

Relevant quotes from page 2:

“As things wrapped up, a reporter tried to pose another question, but she interrupted him.

“I think we’re done,” she said.

IOW, peasant step aside. (Catch my drift? you speak when you’re spoken too!)

SHAME ON YOU, Mrs Schlossberg!

A few more interesting facts about Caroline:

“But let’s look at the facts. Caroline Kennedy lives on Park Avenue with her husband and three children. She is a lawyer, writer and has raised more than 65 million dollars for New York public schools. She is director of the Kennedy Library Foundation, a director of the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund and the Commission on Presidential Debates. She has always shunned the limelight and is a very private person.”

Didn’t I tell you she thinks of everyone as hired help, her hired help?

Caroline need to look up the definition of ‘Public Servant’ and remember who pays her salary out of their Blood Tax Money.

Caroline… Not Ready for Prime Time!

In Caroline Kennedy, economy, Gov Patterson., Hillary Clinton, nepotism, news, Politics on December 23, 2008 at 12:10 pm

Watching Caroline’s performance visiting upstate NY is more than disappointing. As unprepared as she is offering up her paper thin resume of erstwhile experience attempting to bluff her way through to the NY Senate Seat.

I know working mothers in the PTA who have read books on the Constitution, worked as fundraisers for terminated after school activities because of school budget cuts, collected cans with the Boy Scouts for families hard pressed to put food on the table. And done it all undelegated , with their own two hands

Caroline running for the NY US Senate seat is nothing more than theatrics, PR firm and all. Her bid for one of the most complex and diverse states in the Union is being met with the resistance typical of NY’er brilliance at smelling something that just ain’t right! Sure they all liked JFK and RFK… we all did. They had a vision for NY’ers and the future. All Caroline is bringing to the table is her DNA.

Will that be enough to convince Republicans objecting to the legislation Caroline proposes germane to NY’er when it comes crunch time? What will she use for supporting arguments GOOGLE? Or one of Obama’s tricks; using a philosophical quote from a book she read in College? Or will someone else do the homework for her?

Knowing the street sense of New Yorkers, they will be very unhappy with the choice made by Governor Paterson if his choice to replace Senator Clinton is Caroline Kennedy. New Yorkers have all the RIGHT in the World to expect good service from their political appointments… Caroline demonstrates she just isn’t ready for Prime Time… even if Uncle Teddy has volunteered his help! He won’t be sitting in the HOT Seat when it comes time to vote!

Senate-hopeful Caroline talks gays, war, and education

A Step backward for NY’ers IF Paterson picks Caroline!

I would venture to say, Paterson’s prospect of election to the office of Governor would be in jeopardy IF he pushes Caroline on NY’ers as their new Senator!

queen-of-hearts-233Bloomy is going to challenge Paterson for the gubernatorial position in the next election cycle.. Who do you think the Team players, who seem to LOVE throwing people under the bus, will choose? I say, Caroline will go with Bloomy. They have been cozy for some time! Paterson is just a little “too True to Himself and erstwhile” for a Kennedy!

THE DAILY NEWS SAYS:

“After a lifetime of avoiding the press, Caroline Kennedy is speaking out – and some of her views are straight out of LEFT field.

Democrat Kennedy, who is now openly campaigning to replace Hillary Clinton in the Senate, said Saturday that she supports gay marriage – placing her to the left of President-elect Barack Obama and the former First Lady.

“Caroline supports full equality and marriage rights for gay and lesbian couples,” Kennedy spokesman Stefan Friedman said.

She and Obama do agree on one big thing – both feel invading Iraq was a big mistake. (so do millions of others people…no deal breaker there)

Clinton, who is on deck to become Obama’s secretary of state, voted in favor of the 2003 invasion. Obama was an early opponent of the war, but was not a member of the Senate at the time of the vote.

“Caroline opposed the war in Iraq from the beginning,” Friedman said. “She supports President-elect Obama’s plan to work with our military leaders to begin a responsible withdrawal.” (like she ever came out publicly to discourage the vote FOR War..where was she?)

heres the good stuff:

“Kennedy – who took a slew of written questions from a variety of media outlets through her spokesman – flatly refused to say whether she would back the Democratic nominee against Mayor Bloomberg, who plans to pursue a third term next year as an Independent.

DOES ANYONE EVER EXPECT AN HONEST, DETAILED, ANSWER TO A HARD QUESTION FROM CAROLINE?

The Senate hopeful danced around some of the questions posed, but her responses represent more than she’s said to date on a range of issues.

For example:

* Whether Gov. Paterson was right to rule out a tax hike to address the state’s budget problems: “Caroline believes that Gov. Paterson’s budget appropriately includes both revenue increases and budget cuts while still protecting the most vulnerable,” Friedman said.

But didn’t elucidate WHO are the most vulnerable and what is being done to protect them. Does she actually know?

* On the landmark Campaign for Fiscal Equity school-funding lawsuit: “Caroline did not take a public position at the time on CFE, but supports fair funding for New York City schools. She supports charter schools, using government money for charters and the right of teachers to organize at charters if they choose.” Kennedy supports continued mayoral control of city schools and opposes vouchers, Friedman said.

* On immigration, Kennedy believes “undocumented workers should pay a fine, learn English and go to the back of the line behind those who came here legally.” Friedman said she also supports stronger controls on the hiring of such workers for U.S. jobs.

And what is her plan for accomplishing this complex task even for seasoned politicos? … crickets!

* Friedman said Kennedy backs gun control and opposes the death penalty. She also supports rolling back the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy, but not right now due to the “fragile” state of the economy.

Just one of the reasons rolling back the Tax Cuts for the Rich… we are in a “fragile economy”!… Caroline easily stumped on the NO brainers

* Kennedy also said she supports the auto bailout package President Bush announced Friday, which uses funds from the Troubled Asset Relief Program to help carmakers stay afloat.

Auto-makers Bailed Out before Homeowners is just plain WRONG! Auto-makers should file Ch 11 like everyone else and operate under the review of a US TRUSTEE of the BK Court!

*Asked if she would support an Israeli strike against a nuclear-capable Iran, Kennedy said she “strongly supports a safe and secure Israel,” but believes “Israel’s security decisions should be left to Israel.” She also said an undivided Jerusalem should be the nation’s capital.

Thats the Ball Game folks…if Caroline didn’t have a spokesperson she’d be floating a BLANK page for her proposed policy..

queen-of-hearts-232Caroline doesn’t just express interest through the grapevine.. as the customary way of showing you “might” be interested in a date, buying a car or hinting through a friend: ….

“You Hate Surprise Birthday Partys!”

It’s called diplomacy… finesse- having a certain amount of cachet, savoir-faire, selling ice to the Eskimos (no offense Sarah Palin) with an astute understanding of the importance of impeccable social skills…

Can you tell? As much as I loved JFK and RFK… loved what they stood for and what they accomplished in their all too brief lives… no matter what… if they rubbed us the wrong way or said something we weren’t too happy about; at least they would meet the challenge spending time convincing us of their point of view and wouldn’t quit until we got it….. It’s the art of persuasion, personified in a politician who believes and has a vision, a better idea of how to get things done for creating a better quality of life for the world… [sheesh]

Fast forward 50 years later and the jaded remnants of what once was thought of as the vaunted idyllic world of Camelot- our dreams of Camelot are no more.. the beautiful child, Caroline, we watched grow up alongside her younger brother affectionately called…John-John… has raised her hand as if in the persona of the “Red Queen” and demanded she be considered above ALL others for the position of the state of NY Senate seat. Very soon to be dispatched by Governor Paterson’s appointment replacing the vacancy created by Senator Clinton’s “RISE, Hillary, RISE” to the ascendancy of the Secretary of State position!

The sweetness and light has gone out of the little blond headed child who’s love for her father, no one can deny. And been replaced with a silent arrogance of…

I’M CAROLINE KENNEDY – I’m here and I want that…

Oh, well.. honey, read some of your mother’s books. She would be rightly mortified at your behavior indicative of how well or unwell YOU turned out. Yes, we understand the social grooming and political lessons your brother John received from his ever graceful, societal super star, your mother.

I have to ask, where were you when your mom was instructing John in the ways of the world and how he has to earn his own way and prove himself by his own merit? How many times did she reinforce to you, just because you come from a family of privilege doesn’t give you the Right to trample and ride over people when you want something that is an open entitlement to anyone!

Do you realize the damage you’ve done to yourself bursting the public’s perceived bubble of this lovable responsible child grown into this pushy broad with name recognition that isn’t about to accept the word “NO” — If in fact, Gov Paterson, possesses a modicum of sense and sensibility, recognizes New Yorkers need and require a Work Horse NOT a Show Horse to steward one of the most complicated states in the Union through the next of the most financially critical two years?

I didn’t think so…

Go to your room with a knapsack full of books written by your mom… you might take her advise and return a better person for all her insights and experience expressed in a way that may resonate with you in the ways of humanity, the human spirit and politics as an animal you may not yet understand or control.
