John Kerry under fire as Secretary of State takes Nantucket vacation amid Egypt military coup
dailymail.co.uk ^ | 7/4/13 | Jessica Jerreat

As Egypt plunges into crisis John Kerry has been allegedly spotted relaxing at his holiday home in Nantucket for Independence Day.

The Secretary of State, who has just returned from a 12-day tour to the Middle East, was spotted near the July 4 festivities in the center of town, and on his yacht.

With the Egyptian military ousting President Morsi amid violent protests, many in Nantucket were surprised to see Mr. Kerry at his holiday home rather than in Washington.

He is staying at the popular Massachusetts island near Cape Cod with his daughters and their husbands, according to the Boston Herald.

Mr Kerry's staff claimed he was working on the crisis while on vacation and had been in constant touch with world leaders and President Obama while the Egyptian crisis unfolds.

'Since his plane touched down in Washington at 4am, Secretary Kerry was working all day and on the phone dealing with the crisis in Egypt,' his spokesman, Jen Psaki, said.

That's not a man. That's a machine. /sarcasm.

Why would anyone be surprised to see that the rich and powerful in this administration do best? Screw the people and misuse our money.

Well, I beg to disagree with the clear majority here.
The more these nice people go on vacations,
the less damage they can do to us “working.”

Alright this “government” is becoming a total joke. I know, it already was one, but they’re not even trying to keep up appearances anymore, at all. Because they’re all looking more and more like a bunch of clueless fools now to the entire world, they are just going to take off the next three years except for anything they can do to take America down with them. Obozo and his Keystone Kops aren’t even trying to look like real officials anymore, they’re just living it up while they destroy the nation. They don’t care who knows now.

I hope everyone who voted for this fool and his clowns gets a good strong dose of the evil they’ve wrought.

I think it was the other Senator — Bob Kerrey — that was a Medal of Honor recipient.

John Kerry just got some throw-away medals.

Democrats only want the power and trappings of office. They don't want to have to actually work on the hard stuff.

Since John Kerry, Hillary Clinton, and Barack Obama were such avid supporters of Mohamed Morsi, whom the present government has deposed and arrested, will any of those three be allowed into Egypt at any time in the foreseeable future?

How will America conduct foreign policy now? Obama was booed and protested against at almost every stop on his European/African tour, so Obama and his diplomats are virtually personas non grata in every region of the world.

So why not let John Kerry go yachting for the next three years? What else can he do?

Ask him. He will tell you. On second thought, just be around him, he will tell you whether asked or not. He is not bashful. Also, ask him about his medals, including the Purple Hearts.

Kerry should be worried. A good friend of Obama just got “layed off” and is looking for a job......the next Secretary of State Morsi.
