WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama on Friday nominated Sen. John Kerry as his next secretary of state, elevating the longtime lawmaker and foreign policy expert to the top diplomatic job he had coveted.“He is not going to need a lot of on-the-job training,” Obama said, standing alongside Kerry at the White House. “Few individuals know as many presidents and prime ministers or grasp our policies as firmly as John Kerry.”
Sagman, we have missed you. Excellent summation of the situation. The only thing Viet Nam Kerry knows how to do well is marry and spend his wife´s money. Commie for president and a gigolo for SOS. We are in sad shape.
#6 has a great point about the time to "sanitize" the records.
I don´t say anything about Kerry´s wife because George Washington also married his money (most of it). However, Washington was a man of character. He managed his wife´s estate and was a father to her children. Through both their efforts, the Washington´s financed the American revolution. TeRAYsah, on the other hand, funds the destruction of everything that George and Martha worked and fought for by her massive support of the Tides Foundation which funnels money to left-wing organizations set on the destruction of the American system and of capitalism.
Kerry should have been tried as a traitor when he was in his twenties. For presidents and military commanders to overlook and "forgive" such acts (as Jimmah Carter did in his self-righteous foolishness) is to allow such butt-boils to fester and grow until someday they become secretary of state (or President).
FTA: “John’s entire life has prepared him for this role” said Obama, who praised Kerry for his belief that the country must harness “all elements of Americans power.”
This statement sums up Kerry´s qualifications. All who work for Obama must understand that HE is the power; the United States, not so much. Kerry will carry that message with pride. Before Obama and his crew of anti-Americans are through, we will be so weakened on the world´s stage that we will have little influence and that is just the way the progressives planned it.
She´s a lush and I´d say probably drinking Christmas Spirits in her war room at the house she bought so she could be "selected" senator from New York.....
All in keeping with the "new" demorats. The ole Roosevelt democrats are crying this Christmas that a man such as kerry could represent the military of this great country when he "loathed" the military... Another "in your face" moment for this administration....
I also strongly suspect #18´s comments about Clinton. She did not go to the hospital after the "fall", and we´ve heard nothing about Bill or Chelsea rushing to her side. I think her little incident was a drinking binge.
Would anyone really want to see John Murtha as Secretary of State? (yes I know he is now a good democRat). How about Cindy Sheehan, Michael Moore or Bill Maher? Well Monsieur Kerry is in the same not-so-swift boat as these morons if you will recall his famous statement: "You know education, if you make the most of it, you study hard, you do your homework and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well. And if you don´t, you get stuck in Iraq." Yup. Only a statement like this could come from the phoniest guy in recent history who picked a fight with a rice bunker and wound up getting Forrest Gumped in the @ss! Kerry as Secretary of State: Because the world just isn´t laughing at us enough already!
Kerry made it because of his resume, Obama and the Dem crowd know one of their own. Hillary now has the credentials via her incompetence and lying to run for the presidency. By now we all know the kind of people float their boats.
Man oh man...you know, you can´t make this stuff up. So let me get this straight - we got Obie to "lead" us through the fiscal cliff and if something happens to him, Bite Me takes over the teleprompter. Lurch takes over for the Piaps. The Piaps lays low for a while to wash her Benghazi laundry and get ready for 2016. Holdie keeps Fast and Furious (Mexico and Benghazi) out of sight. Axle rod decides to shave off that ridiculous mustache. The anti-Romney pub voters finally wake up and get buyers remorse. Only in Amerika.
Terrazzo married a genuine Republican Senator John Heinz. She is the one who married money and then defiles her husbands memory by using HIS moneymtomfund Tides and every left leaning anti-American cause that her treasonous Gigalo personifies. He is the best traitor money can buy. Query: do John Heinz´s children realize that their mother defiles his memory every day with her marriage and her support of leftist causes? Didn´t Kerry go from sleeping on friends couches to many mansions rather quickly after Sen, Heinz´s suspicious accident? Opportunistic fraud.
Not a word about his disgraceful behavior in Vietnam to get those three Purple Hearts; his treasonous activity during the Paris Peace Talks; his lies about us Vietnam veterans; and his refusal to make his military records public. He´s scum and we in the Navy who have our honor know it.
There is no way that the fourth in line for the presidency would not be treated by a physician after a fall whether they liked it or not. Where was Huma and the SS? Of course you wouldn´t expect the honorable impeached ex-president to even put a band aid on her head. No comment from Bill or even concern from Barry.
Love all these comments here. However you may have gone a bit too far. Expect to see Chels writing or in front of cameras wishing all her mother´s supporters a Happy Holiday Season and that Hill is very appreciative of their kindness.
Says a whole lot about the Democrat Party that this corrupt old bag is all they got for a presidential candidate. She is way past her sell-by date. Can only imagine how much more she will reek by 2016. Hopefully they can get her into rehab and off the sauce by then.
Earlier this week, Onyango "Omar" Obama, uncle to Barack, said in a deportation hearing that he stayed with his nephew in Cambridge in the 1980s. The White House had to that point said that the president had never actually met Omar, who was arrested for drunk driving in 2011. Now, two years after the arrest brought denials of any sort of relationship from the White House, the president is admitting that, yes, he briefly lived with his uncle Omar before heading to Harvard Law School in the ´80s. "The president first met Omar Obama when he moved to Cambridge for law
Technicians in the Washington area raced up to a month-end deadline set by the Obama administration to make the troubled federal insurance website work for a majority of users, but officials acknowledged they still faced a raft of problems that could take weeks or more to fix. By Saturday evening, technicians completed a major hardware upgrade, adding computing, storage and database capacity to their data center, said one person familiar with the situation. "There was a big install and it worked," the person said. Contractors believe the upgrades will improve the system´s performance and let it handle more visitors, but the person
The once-sleepy town of Williston sits on the confluence of the Yellowstone and Missouri rivers in the US state of North Dakota. Five years ago, Williston had a population of 12,000 and was slowly dying on its feet – an agricultural hub marked out from the plains only by the grain silos that stand silhouetted against the big North Dakota skies. The fall-out from a brief oil boom in the mid-1980s had left the town with sky-high debts and a main street filled with empty shops and peeling facades. Young people looking for jobs skipped town at the first opportunity. Today, Williston is
The CIA used a secret base at Guantanamo Bay nicknamed ´Penny Lane´ to turn some of al-Qaeda´s most dangerous terrorists into double agents, US officials have admitted.Inmates languishing under Guantanamo Bay´s harsh regime were offered cash rewards, "hotel" style rooms and even pornography if they agreed to help the CIA track down and kill fellow al-Qaeda operatives. Instead of Guantanamo´s spartan cells, they would be transferred to cottages equipped with private kitchens, showers and televisions, as well as their own patio. A handful then signed agreements to work for the CIA, under which they were released and told to hook up once
DALLAS - A winter storm system blamed for at least 10 fatal accidents in the West and Texas threatens to dampen the Thanksgiving holiday for millions of Americans traveling this week.Nearly 300 American Airlines and American Eagle flights were canceled in and out of Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport on Monday due to the weather, spokeswoman Laura Masvidal said, mirroring disruptions at the air hub a day earlier. Some of the country´s busiest airports - New York, Washington D.C., Philadelphia, Boston and Charlotte, N.C. - could see big delays. Icy roads led to hundreds of accidents and at least 10 deaths, half
As he climbed the political heap, a young Barack Obama roused audiences with promises to unite the nation. He was a Senate candidate in 2004 when he told the Democratic national convention, “There is not a liberal America and a conservative America. There is a United States of America.” In 2007, he declared early in his presidential run that “I don’t want to pit red America against blue America. I want to be the president of the United States of America.” A year later, after he won the Iowa caucus, he promised, “We are not a collection of red states and blue
Remember President Barack Obama´s mother? Though the airwaves currently echo with his vow "If you like your plan . . ." I keep remembering Obama´s account of his mother being denied coverage by her insurance company as she lay dying of cancer.The moving and infuriating story was a staple on the 2008 campaign trail. His mother had insurance, he explained, but when she came down with cancer, her insurance company claimed her disease was a "pre-existing condition" and refused to pay for her treatment. In a debate with Sen. John McCain, Obama said: "For my mother to die of cancer
I have never been much of a conspiracy theorist. For me it was always Oswald by himself from the Texas School Book Depository and nothing in the intervening fifty years has disabused me of this notion. For the most part, I’m an Occam’s Razor kind of guy — the most obvious explanation is likely to be true. (Snip) To put it bluntly, Occam’s Razor has moved. Things that were once possibilities now seem almost certainties to me. Principal among those is that Obama’s academic records are perpetually unavailable for a reason — and that reason is most likely that they reveal
One of President Obama´s chief political assets has been his ability to excite young people like almost no politician in history. But the days of America´s youth fawning over the president are over. A new Harvard University Institute of Politics poll released Wednesday confirms what other surveys have shown in recent months: Millennials have soured on Obama so much this year that their opinion of him largely mirrors the American public´s. Even though Obama does not ever have to face another election, he should be worried about the findings for a couple of reasons, which we will dive into momentarily.
A stunning new study unveiled on Fox News´ Hannity finds that President Barack Obama’s White House calendar records just one face-to-face meeting between Obama and his Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in the more than three-and-a-half years leading up to the disastrous Obamacare launch. The startling statistic comes from a new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) analysis of Obama’s own official White House calendar, as well as the Politico presidential calendar, and raises new questions about Obama’s executive leadership and management throughout the implementation of his singular legislative achievement. More alarming still, the president’s schedule lists 277 private
[Video] President Obama on Wednesday declared that addressing income inequality would be the focus of “all” of the White House’s efforts “for the rest of my presidency.” In a sweeping address that touched on raising the minimum wage, investing in infrastructure and ending tax breaks for the wealthy, Obama warned that the American economy has become “profoundly unequal,” declaring economic mobility the “challenge of our time.” “The combined trends of increasing inequality and decreasing mobility pose a fundamental threat to the American dream, our way of life, and what we stand for around the globe,” he said in an hour-long
Just over two weeks ago, MSNBC host Martin Bashir delivered a harsh piece of commentary that culminated in the suggestion that someone should “s-h-i-t” in former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin‘s (R-AK) mouth. Bashir offered an abject apology on his next broadcast, but a chorus of critics continued to demand action against the host. After a reported “vacation” for the host earlier this week, Bashir announced, Wednesday afternoon, that MSNBC and Martin Bashir are parting ways. Here’s the statement from Martin Bashir, via email: After making an on-air apology, I asked for permission to take some additional time out around the Thanksgiving holiday. Upon
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
Amid an array of “knock-out” attacks against a number of Jews in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood, a city councilwoman pointed to the success of the Jewish community as triggering the aggression. Councilwoman-elect Laurie Cumbo emphasized that while she “admire[s] the Jewish community immensely” for its work ethic, black teens may see it differently. “While I personally regard this level of tenacity, I also recognize that for others, the accomplishments of the Jewish community triggers feelings of resentment, and a sense that Jewish success is not also their success,” Cumbo, who was recently elected, wrote in a letter.
