WASHINGTON (AP) -- 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."

No, I reckon Jean Francois won't require much on-the-job training. He already has plenty of hands-on experience at selling his country out.

Can anyone confirm the rumor that he once served in Vietnam?

I believe he did serve in Vietnam. He managed to injure himself enough to earn three Purple Hearts!

Did he actually injure himself in Vietnam, or did he injure himself while throwing somebody else’s medals over the White House fence?

I believe he did serve Vietnam, in Paris at the peace
talks with the Communist North.

What rich loser. His foreign policy expertise includes traitorously bargaining with the North Vietnamese in Paris. Where’s the picture of him in the blue bunny suit?

When exactly did Hillary quit. I must be out of the loop, but I didn’t remember reading about her resignation.

No surprise -- but at least we can now be confident that the SNAFU that Hillary made of the State Department will be replaced with a giant cluster****.

If the guy wasn't more of a doofus than Bush, he wouldn't have lost to Bush!

(Probably no coincidence that today is the Mayan End of Time!)

I about gagged when Odumba mentioned that Kerry knew "first hand" what it was to serve in harm's way.

Like getting in the way of Terzahhhh when she makes a midinight run to the fridge is harm;s way!

Wait a minute! I thought Susan Rice was going to be the next Secretary of State. You mean to tell me that Obama passed over a black female in favor of a rich, middle aged white guy? This is racism!!!

Kerry is one of the most rabid anti-americans in our Government,
and the Democrats want to make him SoS..

This is why I don't hire Democrats, because they're to damn stupid to know
who and what they're voting for.

“Can anyone confirm the rumor that he once served in Vietnam?”

Yeah he was there...

Long enough to put himself in for a Silver Star, get his political ticket punched, and and take advantage of the 3 Heart Rule by repeatedly stabbing his fingertip with his “John Wayne P-38 can opener” until a drop of blood came out.....

all in ~ 3 months while the rest did their 13 months.......

Oh yeah he also got to fulfill his JFK PT 109 fantacy......

So Obama nominates Paper Cut Kerry - a traitor, and he does it on the day the world was supposed to end. How very appropriate.

I don’t know about him serving in Vietnam, but I do know what the group he was meeting with in Kansas City was up to and plotting to accopmplish.

The idea that this guy could be nominated as Secretary of State is simply sickening.

Yes, Jon Effin Kerry is uniquely qualified. He has experience negotiating with the North Vietnamese in Paris, on his own, while still an active duty Navy officer. As a traitor to his country he will be the perfect fit for the 0bamugabe administration.
