John Kerry: First White Male Secretary of State in 16 Years
VOA News ^ | January 25, 2013 | Jeff Seldin

Posted on 01/26/2013 10:33:12 PM PST by Olog-hai

If confirmed as expected, John Kerry will be the first white male U.S. Secretary of State in about 16 years. So what, if anything, does that mean?

For the first time in almost a decade, members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee were using the term “mister” to address a prospective Secretary of State. And at least online, it's been causing buzz. Jezebel.com—a website aimed at women—recently posted a piece asking satirically, “Is America Ready for a White Male Secretary of State?” …

Years of diplomatic leadership from Madeleine Albright, Colin Powell, Condoleezza Rice, and Hillary Clinton have left a mark. …

John Kerry: First White Male Secretary of State in 16 Years
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Do not be too sure on the “Male” aspect. Kerry did not act like a male when in Vietnam nor after he returned. Kerry is a poofter, not a real man.

I think he will do OK—or at least I hope he will. He knows his way around the world—hey, he speaks French and all the Commies will like him—Let us see how he does—if he screws up we can rip him to pieces—but lets give him a chance.

Maybe the first white male in 16 years, but the first Frenchman ever.

You must be joking! People said similar things about Obama, and look where the “give him a chance” thing has gotten us.

Back then: The whole damn chain of command is one long list of war criminals! America sucks, Senator.

But now as a powerful member of the elderly 1960s Marxist-Alinksy campus radical, spoiled brats and a ruling class New Normal he can do things like get return favors from the Vietnamese communists that benefit his relatives financially.

John Kerry is an arrogant jerk. His foreign policy speeches are a cure for insomnia, endless incoherent babbling.

What it means is that we have declared war on every nation on the planet—we will bore them to death.

Obama must search the white pages for “stupid white guys” to find these clowns.

Kerry is Skull and Bones......

It was discovered in 2003 by Felix Gundacker, a genealogist[7] working with The Boston Globe, that Kerry’s paternal grandparents, who had been born “Fritz Kohn” and “Ida Löwe” in the Austro-Hungarian Empire, changed their names to “Frederick and Ida Kerry” in 1900 and converted from Judaism to Roman Catholicism in 1901[8][9] or 1902.[10]

A Roman Catholic, Kerry was said to carry a rosary, a prayer book, and a St. Christopher medal (the patron saint of travelers) when he campaigned. However, while Kerry is personally against abortion, he supports a woman’s legal right to have one, which puts him at odds with the Catholic Church. Discussing his faith, Kerry said, “I thought of being a priest. I was very religious while at school in Switzerland. I was an altar boy and prayed all the time. I was very centered around the Mass and the church.” He also said that the Letters of Paul moved him the most, stating that they taught him to “not feel sorry for myself.”[22]

In an interview with Christianity Today, Kerry said of his faith: “I’m a Catholic and I practice, but at the same time I have an open-mindedness to many other expressions of spirituality that come through different religions. ... I’ve spent some time reading and thinking about [religion] and trying to study it, and I’ve arrived at not so much a sense of the differences, but a sense of the similarities in so many ways.” He said that he believed that the Torah, the Qur’an, and the Bible all share a fundamental story which connects with readers.[23]

America Undecided: Catholic, Independent and Social Justice Perspectives on Election 2012

“Before he was a devoted husband and father, or a U.S. Senator, or a presidential candidate of historic accomplishments, Barack Obama took a job working as a community organizer for a group of eight Catholic parishes in one of the nation’s largest cities. With funding from the U.S. Bishops and working for three years out of an office in a Catholic church rectory, he embarked on a campaign to empower the lives of thousands of people who were suffering through economic circumstances not unlike what has befallen our country today. “

As per Article 1 Section 6 of the United States Constitution he is not eligible. Same reason Hildabeast wasn’t eligible.

But as someone once said: WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE?

My Congressman told me that they had “voted to rollback her Senator salary” so it would all be legit. Art 1 Sec 6 doesn’t say “unless the salary is rolled back”

We gave Boehner a chance and look what happened?

John Kerry is just a place holder, who will keep his mouth shuit. His job is to cover for Obama who is really conducting all US foreign policy ( as it was Hillery’s).

Thats why we need someone with balls who will not betray our allies and invoke the destruction of Israel.

Kerry ainit it, whether nominated or not.

Obama is a fascist, and he makes all of the calls on foreign policy, with no accountability.Sp is Hillery, for her whether the Bengazi 4 were killed by a movie or by Al Qaeda, its “all the same.” Thats the way fascist think.

I hope Kerry dies in office, because there will be a good chance that it was because he went against Obama. Thats the least we can expect from Kerry if he has a patriotic bone left in his desicated body.
