Skip to comments.John Kerry: Obama’s “Perfect Choice” For Secretary of State
Posted on 12/27/2012 9:28:03 PM PST by NKP_Vet
When Barack Obama nominated John Kerry to be Americas next Secretary of State Friday afternoon, he called Kerry the perfect choice to replace Hillary Clinton. Stating that few individuals grasp our foreign policies as firmly as John Kerry, Obama said the Senator will not need a lot of on-the-job training. He then praised Mr. Kerrys combat service in the Vietnam War and his subsequent tenure of service in the Senate, where Kerry has been intimately involved in every major foreign policy debate for the past 30 years.
Notably, President Obama made no mention of what occurred after Kerrys military service and before his political career. Perhaps this is because what Kerry did during that time would be difficult even for an adroit wordsmith like Obama to summarize with just a pithy phrase or two of adulation.
The historical record informs us that not only has John Kerry been on the wrong side of every major foreign policy issue for most of his adult life, including Iraq, Nicaragua and most recently in Syria, but he has routinely engaged in deception to conceal his folly. Whats worse, Kerry has a clear record of giving aid and comfort to Americas enemies, all the while never missing an opportunity to viciously trash our brave forces fighting against them.
With Obamas nomination of Kerry to head the State Department, therefore, a look back at Kerrys service to this country becomes more pertinent than ever:

I have heard Kerry won’t be confirmed until Hillary testifies. Anyone know more about this?
I only know what few do, and that is that John Kerry was in... Vietnam.
Hates our men in uniform? Check.
Lies almost every time he opens his mouth? Check.
Yep, he's the perfect Obama appointee all right.
Sworn in by a fool and vouched for by a scoundrel.
Kerry is a vapid, left wing dolt with an impeccable comical record. He is the perfect candidate to join the Obama clown parade. Think twice before your sons join the military and are sent to do this evil man’s bidding. This man has demonstrated little regard and pathologically resents the service of heroic men.
John Kerry? I think I am getting sick.
Herman Munster for Sec. of State????
Not everyone is a traitor you know. Jean sKerry is speshul.
From Obama on down, this is the worst assortment of anti-American goons ever to run the U.S. God help us.
Kerry should be refered to as “The Cambodian Kid”
Kerry still has not explained his dishonorable discharge that jimmy carter pardoned him for in 78.
But the fact is that the Secretary of State represents the foreign policy of the United States, which is made by the President and, to a degree, by the Senate, and Kerry represents that policy perfectly.
The foreign policy of the United States is anti-Israel, pro Islam, pro-feminism, pro-gay, pro-business (in foreign countries), anti-gun (except for friendly militias) , pro-grovelling and apologizing.
Why shouldn't Kerry be SOS, under those conditions?
What? Jane Fonda wasn’t available?
She's up for SECDEF if Hagel is not confirmed. She's an expert in air defenses.

My daughter and son-in-law retired from the military because of this clown. SIL was going to be a lifer, 14 years in. No more, he retired as of last month, 5 tours, 4 in Iraq, 1 Afghanistan. My daughter didn’t know Carter and Clinton also slashed the military budget, she doesn’t have an adult understanding of Dem history, but they’re both conservative, thank God! Every time there is a Dem as pres, the first thing they want to cut is the military. Not welfare bennies, but our national security. Remember how Clinton wanted to close bases?
