Can’t say I was overly surprised by this. I almost have to admire Obama for the evil genius his displays.
Well, I guess he’s qualified. He spent three months in Vietnam during the war and even more time in Hanoi after coming home with all his “hero” medals.
Didn’t see that coming.
About 4 months ago.
John Kerry is unfit to be Secretary of State. If the citizens of his home state wish to continue to vote the known perjurer in as Senator, I can’t stop them. I can voice strenuous objection to him being other things, and I will.
Every day brings darker and darker news.
Maybe more concerning is the anti-American Senator Bob M. taking over the important Senate post.
I am living in a world I do not know and I’m only 30.
99-’13, things changed, and changed really dam fast.
The only hope I have left is, well, if they can do it (the commies) it can be done. It just doesn’t seem like any of us want to even try.
I think about this constantly, there is only two logical outcomes for real Americans/conservatives: total subjugation or separation.
I’m open to pondering any other real alternatives.
Isn't he the guy who served in Vietnam? Kerry, I mean.
Well, Menendez certainly has experience with relationships in the Dominican Republic...I'm sure he'll be willing to bone up on relations with other nations as well.
Thank God we in MA will be rid of this useless idiot. Let him take over the striped-pants boys at State. Nobody does anything there anyway. He’ll fit right in.
I wonder if Obama was against this, before he was in favor of this?
John Kerry a pantywaist. Communist China, Russia, Islamic Nations, will walk all over him like a rented mule
Chosen to nominate, maybe, but the Senate has a say in all this ...
Sen. Robert Menendez - Foreign Sexual Relations - fits.
Swift Boaters? Mccain and his girlfriend and all the other republicans would condemn them.
Ketchup boy/ Lurch.
One of the more unphotogenic bits of Demo Rat Crat in the country. Not looking forward the inevitable photos we will have to endure.
The Pubbies should block this clown, but I suspect they’ll roll over and play dead as usual.
The Senate isn’t about to stand in their members’ way. Both will pass easily.
A man who planned, with Scott Camil, the mass murder of Republican congressmen.
Whoopee! Now maybe we’ll get lucky and Coupe Deval will appoint Fat Ted’s widow to Kerry’s Senate seat.
Only God can help this nation of shame. We need turn to God and pray Daniel’s prayer in Daniel 9 from the heart and repent of our focus on everything under the sun but God and His ONLY provision for righteous living (Jesus Christ).
I received an email from Joel Rosenberg this morning (the whole message is on his blog) and he put it well:
“...the further we turn away from God in our nation — the further we drive Him out of our society, our of our schools and courts, and out of our media and out of our homes, or the more we give mere lip service to religion, the more men are “holding to a form of godliness, although they have denied its power” (2 Timothy 3:5) — the worse things are getting.
And it's his most endearing quality. He only gets worse from there.
When will the special election for his Senate seat be held?
Show us the Discharge Papers Jean. If you weren’t a man of the cloth I would use some strong language.
If you have the slightest bit of evidence that the Senate will not vote to get rid of this turkey, and kiss Barry-O's butt while doing it, then please cough it up.
Seen a recent photo of Kerry?He looks like fate snatched him up and wiped it’s ass with him.
John Kerry you are a traitor and a slap in the face of any Veteran.
Oh, remind me again. Did he serve in Viet Nam?
This is a GOP Senate seat pick-up in MA, short of Deval Patrick deciding to blow his shot at a Presidential run in 2016. Because not a chance in hell does the next President come out of the Senate...
Will his “Man Servant” travel with him? HE NEEDS HIS PEANUT BUTTER AND GRAPE JELLY SAMWICHES!
On which side?
What a disgrace to everyone who served in Vietnam ! Just a continuation of the most destructive generation in American history.
Worse the Hillary Klintoon. Kerry loathes America, liberty, Western values, the U.S. Constitution, a strong defense, a foreign policy in our own self-interest and loves every dictator and oppressive regime on the planet. A lot of good he’ll do! [/sarcasm]
Another joke from the court jester.
I actually think Kerry will breeze through the confirmation process. The Senate is an old boys (and old girls) club, and they scratch each other’s backs. Had Obama put him up for Secretary of Defense, he probably would have had a fight on his hands. Kerry’s anti-military funding stance would have been a big issue. But I suspect Kerry will get only token opposition at State and will be confirmed by a large majority.
Not saying I think Kerry would be a good Secretary of State (I don’t), but I really don’t see the GOP kicking up a fuss over Kerry at State. As for Defense, I’m betting the buzz about Chuck Hagel is legit.
This is the fraud who claimed and got a Purple Heart for getting “rice shrapnel” in his butt
“Thank God we in MA will be rid of this useless idiot.”
You realize, of course, that Lieawatha will now be the “senior” senator from the People’s Republic.
Excuse me, I need to go vomit..
No surprise. Two America-hating communists.
English Standard Version (ESV)
8 May his days be few;
may another take his office!
we are going to need more popcorn....
He's perfect. The commies love him.
What could go wrong?
Most excellent. Post it like you stole it!
A traitor and moron? He’ll fit right in to the regime!
Jane Fonda not available?
“the Senate has a say in all this ...”
Hell will freeze over before the speak ill of one of the club. Senate first, people second. Oligarchy in action.
