This will give John Kerry the cover he needs to resign as Sec of State before he does too much more damage

John Kerry’s junkets for islamic peace must be causing great stress in the family. I pray Mrs. Kerry makes a complete recovery.

Hey thurston, did you ever stop beating your wife? Maybe she leaked that he was yachting while Cairo was burning. Saw him on his sail board. Never a great white around when you need one.

later onset ...could be a lot of things ...brain tumor, etc.

I’m sure she’s getting the very best available medical care possible in this entire universe, however. And always will, forever. It’s just the rest of us suckers who will have to go under Obamafailcare and just have to suffer.

Was she really having a seizure or was it because her husband got caught having a good time on his yacht while Egypt was burning and the crooks in Washington said Kerry was not on his yacht and then the pictures came out.Remember how Hillary had to go to the hospital when all the Benghazi things were being questioned..Doctors said if Hillary was treated the way they said she was she would have died.All that went away.. Sorry Terry if you are really at deaths door I hope you have a good passing and God does not punish you for all the things you have done so bad like supporting terrorist and they murdering Jews and children. I AM SO SICK OF THESE COMMUNIST..

Lurch and the Catsup queen get along as well as Hildabeast, Der Sleek...Mooch and Bambini...
She’s a lush which likely caused the seizure.

If the “war hero” doesn’t get it he’s going to be forced to go for the hat trick and marry his money for the third time.

SHE IS APPROACHING HER 75TH. BIRTHDAY....

I doubt if she much cares what Kerry does...she still mourns the death of her true love...JOHN HEINZ III....and one day they will be together..

Kerry is now searching for COVER UPS...THE GUY IS A LOSER.

This thread is unfair. What did Teresa Heinz ever do to any of you to deserve this verbal treatment? By all accounts, she's a good woman who suffered tragedy in her life, and has lived it well and generously with the fortune she received.

Keep in mind that if John Kerry had beaten GWB for that second term, he might well have lost to a conservative 'pub for a second term. Instead of Kerry, we've got two terms of Obama.

Brain tumor? That’s how they usually present.

Teddy K had a seizure before he was diagnosed.

Resign? My money is on the likelihood that he’ll milk his new role as the grieving widower and victim of loss who should therefore be ranked as the greatest Secretary of State ever, and hustled into the White House.

Just a guess, but very little ever serves to make a democrat give up power.

“I pray Mrs. Kerry makes a complete recovery.”

Why waste a good prayer? She has used her enormous wealth to try an sink everything this country stands for. Why would you pray for her to continue to try and do you and your family in? If Hitler were alive today but in critical condition, would you pray for him too? I only pray for those who are deserving, but that’s just me.

No. Obama probably would've been defeated by a true conservative instead of McCain, Romney, or some other globalist. Conservatives lost a lot of strength going along with GWB's government over-reach. That's not his fault, it's ours. The ptb puppet masters propping up RINOs at the risk of losing, that's there's.

I don't blame GWB. He went with the flow.

I'm going to revise my answer and say "yes". We don't even know if we can stop the invasion of the US, and that situation definitely got worse under GWB. "No child left behind" is a disaster with its heavy hand on education....GWB did that, Obama brought it further. GWB gave us Iraq, Obama gave us support of government overthrows all over the region. Low interest rates for savers, in the name of saving banks and the global economy?....GWB. The pharmaceutical program for Seniors...one big step toward using the feds to support pharmaceutical companies. The debt?....It's worse now, sure, but it was going that way under GWB.

I don't think Obama could've made such a mess of things without the head start GWB gave him.

I’ve known a few people who had shown signs of seizure whenever they ran out of gin and the stores were closed.

MSNBC said she was intubated. That is not normal for a seizure, AFAIK, and I have a seizure disorder.

Put in my vote for metastatic brain tumor exacerbating a subarachnoid bleed due to low platelets (and elevated liver enzymes). Intubated for a seizure sure sounds suspicious for status epileptecus of unknown but suspected cause.

I had some lurker from Canada (I think) send me an Email on my Private Email Account for my apparent lack of sympathy to Ms. Kerry / Heinz (whatever) on a previous thread.

To make her (?) happy, I will wish Ms. Kerry / Heinz well.

I will not comment on Ms. Kerry / Heinz supporting Abortion, Socialism, a lying Husband and the Democrat Party of Slavery, Jim Crow and Tyranny.

That is all.

That analysis seems entirely correct. It is our fault. I don’t quite understand the system that consistently gives us mediocrities like Dole, McCain, Romney, and probably Jeb Bush, or why we don’t seem to be able to drive that system to the right. Maybe just more of the TEA Party-like activism, vocal support or condemnation of appropriate politicians, and money flow.

I suspect that you are as fed up as I am with the mantra that we “must vote for (name the mediocrity of your choosing) or else we’ll get (name the marxist of your choosing). Rewarding mediocrity never leads to excellence.
