Who have we heard this from before?

A defiant Caroline Kennedy says she "wouldn't be beholden to anybody" - including Mayor Bloomberg - if she's picked to become New York's next U.S. senator.

"I'm really coming into this as somebody who isn't, you know, part of the system, who obviously, you know, stands for the values of, you know, the Democratic Party," Kennedy told the Daily News Saturday during a wide-ranging interview.

"I know how important it is to, you know, to be my own person. And, you know, and that would be obviously true with my relationship with the mayor."

Kennedy, sipping on peppermint tea at an upper East Side diner, was responding to Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver, who said she could be more beholden to Bloomberg than Gov. Paterson, who will make the Senate appointment.

JFK's daughter has been helped behind the scenes by the mayor's top aide, Kevin Sheekey. She has also hired a political consulting firm with ties to Bloomberg.

And you're rich so you can't be bought by anyone, right?

"Educated" at Concord Academy, Radcliffe College, Columbia Law School. $100 million bux to her name.

You know she has no experience if she needs to prove something with stating silly trival name drop relations and convince everyone.Go help people who need it and save yourself from the garbage that it is NYC politics.NYC does not have democrats or republicans, just private property and personal gain politicians.
Take a look out of this city and state to see what a hell of a lot less corrupt opportunist leaders look like.
Palin should be laughed at whatever letter goes in front of her name.Less experience than Arnold in California.

The Daily News article was brilliant in it's subversive "read between the lines" message: We think this woman's a moron!

ezra said...

so why doesn't someone start to ask her where she stands on the issues?

she acts like she is just going through the motions and is a shoo-in 'ya know?'

Keep going, Kennedy. Your candidacy is revealing the view of responsibilities.

Silver thinks that a politician's loyalties must be to the party and the corrupt.

Commissar Death and Taxes think that all loyalty must be to the Dear Leader himself.

Both of those corrupt morons believe that Kennedy is an imbecile. She is, but she's not their imbecile. Uncle Drunk Dunk and Drown will be controlling her positions, umm, ya know?

None of them has any belief that the taxpaying, citizen voter has any say in his/her own life.

Name a bridge after her and she will go away. Opportunistic as ever the Kennedys are riding high and here is an easy in - appointed to the Senate, no buying vote for groceries - cheap!!

She cannot stomach the scrutiney from the public - she has not experienced the press since the greek billioniare Ari days. Serve in public office for the betterment of our lot? What is she going to do have a Zabars built in every neighborhood? Give me a break from these classic limozine liberals - they are back with a vengence!

And she doesn't look too healthy either. Can we see her medical records?

Maybe she can try a stint as TV news anchor?

Missus Schlossberg "channel" George Plimpton.

There are all closet boozers, socialist liar gun grabber like Ted....its must be genetic.
This woman would be disastrous in the senate with a Democrat UN butt licker as president. (Coumo.Jr is just as bad as pappa Mario)

Why is her name now Kennedy?
Hasn’t she lived in New Jersey for the past 20years?

....Not good idea to run for any office with a Jewish name (Schlossberg)right now.

To many Wall street friends of the Mayor made off or got busted for cheating and stealing billions plus a war in the mid east.

Look at the bright side...Der Yiddisher Kenig Bloomberg and his Matzo ball posse will be hosed soon.
People (even the Hispanics) are wising up to that BS buddy system and lack of representation

Y'all a class bunch, that's for sure.

- Ok, she is not experienced therefore she doesn't deserve the seat. That is very fair and we should leave it at that.

- All these personal attacks against her are uncalled for. I have no reason to doubt her intentions are good. And why don't you consider what she's witnessed her immediate family go through and then say all the shit you've been saying to her face.

All these personal attacks against her are uncalled for.

If she can't handle personal attacks now, what makes you think she'll be able to handle them if she's appointed? Or, are you suggesting we lower our expectations for her, since she's had such a "rough life"?

Do you think that guys like Vladimir Putin, Hugo Chavez, Wen Jiabao (China), Robert Mugabe, Nicolas Sarkozy (France), etc. etc. should cut Obama some slack because he's Black?

Do you favor affirmative action for certain elected (and in Kennedy's case, unelected) officials?

If you can't take the heat, get the hell outta the kitchen!

Impossible since her handlers prevent her from any interaction with the public.

Has anybody noticed how fragile she looks while walking? She always seems to be clutching herself almost as if in pain. Does not come across as leadership material.

She has about as much experience as a body builder, or bug terminator .Many people on the left dont think she has experience.Lots of left over dem family dynasty's but too many dead family inbred jewels like strom thurmond(hes good for a scary laugh) or Jesse Helms or wheres the Rockefellers of Standard oil?
I think you meant Augusto Pinochet,"Papa Doc" Duvalier ,and kissingers buddy Jonas Savimbi dont give a damn about what foreign leader thinks they deserve in respect.Obama has his chief of staff (dual citizenship)to control U.S. policy continuing to piss off the middle east taking more land.

Yes true and Madoff still has billions in off shore accounts in the Bahamas.Quietly the current administration's SEC knew he was not able to back up the money to "investors" but had pressure from other Wall St goons like bloomberg to leave him alone because too many friends of the White house like Skilling and Ken Lay were playing with a short deck.
Paulson is the former chairman of Goldman Sachs, a named defendant on the Enron case. And Enron and CEO “Kenny Boy” Lay were George Bush’s leading supporters, contributing cash, the corporate plane and fundraising energy to Bush’s rise.
