I am beyond furious. He's usurping the President's job right under our nose. We have to do something to stop this traitor. Get the e-mails going to his office (I know he's not there ever, but maybe his staff will relay the message). Let's bombard him with mail and phone calls to let him know he is not getting away with it this time. Where is John O'Neil?

Well not my first choice, or last choice for that matter..LOL

Every time I hear the Skerry one speak, I have flash backs to the movie "Trading Places". He reminds me of the Elite snobs in the scene at the country club, right before Dan Ackroyd walks in.

Since he is a "U.S." Senator, why can't all we citizens of the U.S. sign a recall petition? Maybe if we could get millions of signatures we could shut him up at least.

The only good thing about this instance of John Kerry sucking up to the terrorist supporter in Syria is that he does so as the roundly defeated candidate for President. If Assad the younger has any brains, or if any of his advisers have any brains, the Syrians will not take this visit seriously.

If, however, they do take Kerry seriously, then more Americans will be killed in Iraq as a direct result of this arrogant fool's (Kerry's) actions. I resent the very existence of Kerry much more now then when I first met him in 1963. And I didn't like him a lot, then.

So now Kerry's running for Secretary of State.

As if it wasn't bad enough already, now he's added Carter's international interventionist ineptitude to his bag of tricks.

Why is it his type always flock to terrorist states? Before Hussein fell, the left couldn't resist having their pictures taken with him, toothy smile from ear to ear.

"Oh look ma, here I am with the killer of millions. Don't I look swell!"

Good night John BOY! (or better yet, child)

Kerry: "Please, Mr. Assad, be nice to us."

Assad: "Yeah (chuckle) sure, your pleading (chuckle) has really warmed my heart."

(All of Syrian cabinet falls over laughing)

Be very glad El Hombre Tejas won this past election. We need to strike fear into the hearts of people like Assad.

Thank GOD sKerry is not President!

Remember the thing he said during the campaign?

"I don't know what I'm going to find when I am elected."

"I didn't think he [Bush] was going to f*** it up that bad."

"I'll reach out to the entire world [UN] before I do anything."

This idiot is so delusional, he may think he is ACTUALLY being inaugurated on Jan. 20, and is one of those "I believe" posters PJComix has in the DUmmie FUnnies.

Unfortunately Kerry is my senator. After windsurfing his way through the Senate for 20 years he finally decides to show up for work. Don't worry, in 6 months Kerry will be a faint memory. I hear there will be great windsurfing weather this summer on Martha's Vineyard.

I certainly hope you are correct - my fear is that he will continue to behave like "the President in exile". This will be embarassing and weaken the West at a time when we must remain as united as possible.

"I wish you were the president," al-Nabulsi said.

"Thank you very much. So do I," Kerry said.

And .. what outrages me is that the WH just sent somebody over to Syria .. and here is this TRAITOR undoing everything the WH is doing.

I can just imagine the TRAITOR's appeasing statements.

Now .. isn't that a great image to send to our enemies - confusion. I'm livid over this TRAITOR being allowed in those areas.

Since Kerry is a member of the Foreign Relations Committee, I suspect he cannot be stopped .. but I find his actions extremely egregious, petty and childish.

So Kerry can kiss Assads butt after trashing the President in front of our troops.

So he's still busy, after 30 or so years, with the same kinds of activities that made him infamous during the Viet Nam war, creating more discord than healing, cavorting with those who wish to do us harm, increasing the danger to our troops, openly condemning the President to people who are at best neutral to us and at worst our open enemies. He's scum. And treasonous.

Thank God he is not coming home to be inaugerated.

But not for lack of trying. He's working, and his cronies with him, to challenge that at every opportunity. And probably behind the scenes to create more bipartisan discord.

Well I'm one witness, and you might take a look at this site concerning the Pope.

"Some Melkites believe that Head of Holy Prophet and Glorious Forerunner John the Baptist is in the Omayyad/Ummayade Great Mosque in Damascus, Syria. In May 2001, Pope John Paul II visited the Omayyad/Ummayade Great Mosque and prayed in front of what is believed to be the tomb of St. John the Baptist. The Mosque was a Catholic Church dedicated to the Holy Prophet and Glorious Forerunner John the Baptist. "

Another of Today's Threads, "Think Rushmore...," links to http://www.opinionjournal.com and Dr. Thomas Sowell's piece called "President Needs to Carve Out a Place in History."

The article has relevance, for in it, Sowell quotes the original JFK in a statement of position that is diametrically opposed to that of the current pretender, Kerry, and his inclination to appease.

See what you think about the following statement by Sowell, containing Kennedy's remark:

"If the time ever comes when this president, or any future president, has to hesitate in the face of a mortal threat looming on the horizon, because of fear of the word 'unilateral' and the howling of critics at home or abroad, this great nation is lost."

Sowell continued, "President John F. Kennedy said it all long ago: 'We dare not tempt them with weakness.'"

Doesn't sound like the Far Left and its candidate of 2004, does it?

Kerry goes to Iraq and tells the troops that Bush is making mistakes and yes: I have a plan.
Then he goes to Syria, talks there about security, quite obviously sidestepping his 76% absentee record at the Foreign Relations Committee during a crucial time span of the last eight years.
His confirmation: After wards I know it better and have a plan. Beforehand I have to weigh various and numerous options. This takes time.

Please advise. I deem Kerry's actions beyond his duties as a Senator and contrary to US foreign policy. I seek censure in the US Senate.

Billybob, what's the criteria and process?

Senator or not, kerry has no business interfering in delicate foreign policy and national security matters like this, without clearance from the President and/or the State Department.

Aside from the obvious ethical slap in the face and lack of etiquette, is there anything illegal about this? It should be, but I really don't know if it is. It's my impression that meetings of this nature require Presidential approval. Or is that just a courtesy that most people observe?
