Democrats Tap Sen. John Kerry for Stadium Speech on Foreign Policy

Democrats will make President Obama’s foreign policy achievements a major theme of the final night of their convention next Thursday at Bank of America Stadium, ABC News has learned.

Today organizers announced that Sen. John Kerry — chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and a decorated combat vet– will deliver a televised address in primetime that night, preceding Vice President Joe Biden and Obama.

Kerry is expected to tout Obama’s record on ending the war in Iraq, setting a timetable for Afghanistan, and stepping up the targeting of al Qaeda leaders, including the killing of Osama bin Laden.

“Senator Kerry will speak to how the President has restored America’s leadership in the world, has taken the fight to our enemies, and has a plan to bring our troops home from Afghanistan just like he did from Iraq,” said an Obama campaign official on condition of anonymity.

“He will contrast the president’s strong leadership in this area with Mitt Romney, who has embraced the go-it-alone, reckless policies of the past that weakened America’s place in the world and made us less secure here at home,” the official said.

Isn't this "inappropriate" so soon after Isaac drenching the Gulf coast? The DemocRATS just don't care about the poor folks! This is so insensitive! Hrumpf! Hrumpf!

Oh, yeah, THIS guy knows a lot about dealing with the realities of foreign affairs.

After all, he served in Viet Nam, and isn’t that a foreign country?

Seriously? What exactly is the foreign policy accomplishment? Bowing at a 90 degree angle to foreign leaders? Doing absolutely nothing strategic in the middle east? Alienating our historical allies?

The only thing about Obama’s foreign policy that is arguably good - is that isn’t as bad as his domestic policy.

Mocking Kerry for bragging about his service is such a disservice.

Kerry was an out and out traitor to his country while in uniform. As an anti war protestor, he met with our communist enemy in Paris, undermining peace talks which went on forever while troops died.

He has never revealed his conversations with the evil North Vietnamese because OBVIOUSLY he supported them against his own country and fellow servicemen.

John Kerry is a traitor and that is not a loose use of the word.

This is now the official ABC line on Kerry. Time to bring back the Swift Boat Vets For Truth to correct the record yet again.

Just amazing how short the Democrat Party's bench is for any type of war hero or even respectable vet. Imagine calling this failure out to speak right before Obama!

They really are a desperate group.

"Democrats will make President Obama’s foreign policy achievements a major theme of the final night of their convention next Thursday"

What foreign policy achievements? Putin is ruling Russia with the iron fist of a former KGB chief, China is buying up America, Iran is on the verge of obliterating Israel and a general malaise has engulfed the world as economies slowly drain down the toilet. Oh yeah.. I almost forgot. Obama killed Bin Laden barehanded and he closed Guantanamo Bay... Pardon me, he 'promised' to close Guantanamo, if elected again maybe that promise will come true.

Oh well… Here’s the good news. It’s going to be a real short speech.

John Kerry, the liberal’s idea of a battle tested war hero, saluting to his admiring whoreds (not a spelling error) while smiling and saying,”Reporting for do-do!”.

His prime time speech will consist of a lesson in “Medal Throwing” and “After Action Report Enhancement”

Two of the Purple Hearts might have been legitimate, but he is the only living senator to receive one for shooting himself in the butt.

"I used to do this ... in Vietnam. Where I served. Doing this. In the face of the enemy. And I received numerous decorations, which I threw over the White House fence, for boo-boos I got while serving in Vietnam ... OK, OK. I did it to Teresa, once. And she hit me. It really hurt, I had a bad boo-boo. I awarded myself the Congressional Medal of Honor!"

I commend the Democrats for this choice: Kerry is the perfect symbol for their foreign policy.

Kerry was a prominent voice for defeat in the Vietnam War, bringing joy to our enemies and sorrow to our friends. This prolonged the Cold War and the Evil Empire for two decades. Kerry never paid for this treason.

The Democrats can have him. Perfect!

If I remember correctly, he wrote his own Purple Heart nominations and received all 3 wounds within a 24 hour time span.

The wounds were horrific (NOT).

Hey ABC news! Why not do some investigative journalism, and get John F'n Kerry to sign and release his SF-180? Aren't ya'all curious about his military record just a little?

I won't hold my breath.

You ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, etc. are just 0bama's and the DNC's whores.

As if he knows anything about foreign policy: After a brief
tour in Viet Nam, wasn’t he the guy that turned in his
military metals and bad-mouthed his fellow soldiers?
