It has now come out that Edward Klein’s new unauthorized biography of President Obama, “The Amateur,” alleges that Obama was a source of discontentment within the Kennedy family.
Recall that Caroline Kennedy was a very prominent supporter of Barack Obama in his 2008 campaign, going so far as to write in the New York Times, “I have never had a president who inspired me the way people tell me that my father inspire them. 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.”
Klein’s alleges those sentiments have changed dramatically since 2008.
Caroline was outraged at comparisons between her mother, Jackie, and Michelle Obama. The source from within the family told Klein that “Caroline had a word for such comparisons; she called them ‘odious.’ She really got annoyed….Now she says things about Obama like, ‘I can’t stand to hear his voice any more. He’s a liar and worse.”
