(John) Kerry completes six-nation trip (vying for Sec. of State?)
Boston Globe ^ | November 10, 2010 | Farah Stockman

On Wednesday night, Senator John Kerry (D, MA) completed a six-day, six-nation trip that show-cased his growing role in helping the Obama administration negotiate potentially explosive situations.

Kerry, who is chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, traveled to Khartoum and Addis Ababa to deliver a White House offer for better relations in exchange for concrete steps towards peace in Sudan, Africa's largest country. Then he spent time in Lebanon and Syria, where he tried to smooth mounting tensions over a UN tribunal. He ended his trip in Israel and the West Bank.

I always bet on him going after SECDEF post. God help us if he tries for either one. NO WAY.

The man was a traitor during the Vietnam war. He shouldn’t even be in public office.

Who knew that Obama’s secret middle east policy weapon would be a John Kerry charm offensive.

I’m sure he’ll charm the pants off them.

How do you surrender to six countries all at one time?

Hillary is no prize, but she is more competent than Jon Carry, the talentless, horse-faced, gaffe-prone elitist gigolo. Can’t Terayyyza buy him an island where he can walk around wearing an ascot and monocle, patting the natives on the head?

(besides Martha’s Vineyard)

What if the “Senior Senator” from Ma. left the country for 6 days and nobody noticed ?... Never mind.. Nobody did !
It drives “LIVE SHOT” crazy that Scott Brown gets all the attention.

Send the bitch back to 'Nam.

It's the only country on Earth he's done any favors for.

And exactly how much talent does it take to jaunt around the world, promise scumbags buckets of *our* money, and claim Sec. of State-level prowess because they smile?


Frowning takes 68 muscles.
Smiling takes 6.
Pulling this trigger takes 2.
I'm lazy.

Well, why not? He negotiated the surrender of the United States to the Communist North Vietnamese as an independent agent on behalf of peace loving people everywhere. Besides, I understand that he actually went to Vietnam or something.
