Have you heard the latest? This very wealthy woman named Lady Lynn Forester de Rothschild who was a Senator Hillary Clinton supporter and fundraiser has publicly announced that she’s supporting Senator John McCain instead of Senator Barack Obama.
Apparently Lady de Rothschild doesn’t like Obama and thinks he’s elitist!!!!
Remember Lynn Forester de Rothschild, the fantastically wealthy wife of an heir to England’s most influential and storied banking dynasty? About a year ago, she was a Hillary Clinton supporter, and had this to say:
“I think if history is our guide, we’ve had stronger economies, more wealth creation, under Democratic presidents than we have under Republican presidents.”
Now she’s announcing her support for John McCain for president. Why not Obama? “Because frankly I don’t like him,” she told CNN. And why would Forester (who is a voting American but lives at Ascott House, her husband Sir Evelyn Robert Adrian de Rothschild’s country estate in Britain) not like the Illinois senator? “I feel like he has not given me reason to trust him,” she said. “I feel like he is an elitist.”
Lord have mercy!!!
Here’s some info on Lady de Rothschild:
A corporate lawyer and telecommunications entrepreneur, the sparkly blond ex-wife of former New York politician Andrew Stein had made more than $100 million from the sale of cleverly acquired wireless broadband licenses. She was also sexy, charming, and dazzlingly well connected. Two years later, after the smitten Sir Evelyn divorced his second wife, Victoria Schott, the mother of his three children, Forester became the third Lady Rothschild. After marrying in November 2000 at a London synagogue, they honeymooned at the White House, guests of Lynn’s good friends Bill and Hillary Clinton.
Today the New Jersey-born Lady de Rothschild—the flashiest hostess in London—is mates with Tony and Cherie Blair, among other topflight Britons. She’s also mistress of the former John Singer Sargent home in Chelsea and of Ascott House, the 3,200-acre Rothschild family estate in Buckinghamshire, and the chief executive of E.L. Rothschild, the holding company that she owns with her third husband to manage investments in the Economist and various enterprises in India.

I really don’t care who she supports. But here you have a woman who has the title of Lady and is the mistress of her country estate in England where she lives with her very wealthy husband Sir Evelyn Robert Adrian de Rothschild who is a member of England’s banking dynasty calling Obama an elitist? Give me a damn break!!!!! I’m surprised she didn’t call Obama uppity.
Pot meet kettle indeed.
