Gingrich calls for Sec. Kerry to resign over global warming remarks
The Daily Caller ^ | February 18,2014 | Michael Bastasch

Posted on 02/18/2014 9:40:28 AM PST by Hojczyk

Former Republican Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich took to Twitter to call for Secretary of State John Kerry to resign for calling global warming the “world’s most fearsome weapon of mass destruction.”

Gingrich, a failed Republican presidential candidate, tweeted out his disgust with Kerry’s comments (Note: He spells Kerry’s name wrong in the tweets):

Does kerrey really believe global warming more dangerous than north Korean and iranian nukes? More than Russian and Chinese nukes? Really? ? — Newt Gingrich (@newtgingrich) February 18, 2014 On his trip to Indonesia, Kerry said that global warming is “the world’s largest weapon of mass destruction” and particularly harms low-lying countries that are at risk from rising sea levels.

John Kerry is an idiot.
Exactly what has “global warming” destroyed?
Why do we put up with these people?

Juan Francois Keree’s remarks come under the category of “mind numbingly stupid.”

Kerry is an idiot but this is classical Gingrich overreach. Kerry makes a stupid comment and Gingrich wants a resignation.

Oh I see, Gingrich is a “failed Republican Presidential Candidate”, not the Former Speaker of the House.

I could take this a lot more seriously if Mr Newt had not sat on a couch with Pelosi and basically said the same thing as the Undertaker.

I see the author doesn't note that Kerry is also a "failed presidential candidate".

He can’t do anything about the nucs since we gave them to them in back deals - he works on what he can change and the is burdening the american people and destroying the country.

People simply do not understand how much liberals hate this country.

Why not also mention that Kerry is a failed Presidential candidate as well, who chose a running mate who fathered a child from an adulterous relationship during his champaign.

7 years. 7 years since Newt wrote his manifesto describing himself as a “green conservative” and his 10 point plan to “repair” the earth.

Gingrich, a failed Republican presidential candidate,

That's as far as I got before realizing this was a political liberal hack piece. John F-ing Kerry is also a "failed presidential candidate" by the way. In the famous words of another dangerous liberal idealog, "What difference does it make anyway?"

I hope Kerry gets some radiation from Fukushima up his ass. How dare he ignore this catastrophe and how dare he concentrate on a fake Science when our soldiers are dying.

Remeber the Gingrich-Kerry debate (love fest) on global warming?

Newt called himself a green conservative and that man-made global warming existed and should be addressed urgently.

Kerry, Gingrich debate global warming"

“Gingrich, a failed Republican presidential candidate...”

I wonder? Does the “Daily Caller” also refer to Sec. Kerry as a “failed Democrat presidential candidate”? Thought not.

What a waste of breath to suggest that a liberal democrat resign over anything they have said.

You would think that by now everyone should already know and expect them to say anything they want to and not be held accountable.

I’m beginning to think that prominent “conservatives” today are nothing more than opposition party crowd pleasers kept in place to keep the masses thinking that someone is actually representing them in DC.

Leftists are crazy, Kerry is a man who betrayed his country to communist killers, while in uniform. He should never have been Secretary of State he is far worse than Jane Fonda.

Whether or not Newt Gingrich bought into global warming, he knows that Kerry’s remarks are wildly irresponsible.

IIRC, that pic of Pelosi and Gingrich was regarding both of them supporting efforts to fend off global warming.

IIRC, Gingrich didn’t make much headway in his global warming debate with Kerry several years ago. That exercise in futility was little more that an attempt by both to sell their books on the subject.

Remember with liberals it is not about fact, it is about future. If you do what the say the future is always wonderful and bright, if you don’t the world will end.

Sadly, with every liberal program, once we get to it it sucks and does not work so they again launch into the future will be better with us.

Amazing considering Tepco/Japan just admitted under reporting radiation contamination levels by a factor of 1,000 since last July.

Progressives only solve fake problems. They do not touch real problems.

Unfortunately, that's true, but it speaks of the horrible field of candidates we had to choose from, and hardly exonerates Newt from his stupid "green conservative" ideas about how t stop global warming and save the planet.

Let's just say he has some issues..........

Gingrich, a failed Republican presidential candidate

Really that is how they describe Gingrich, not speaker of the house when the R's won the congress for the first time in 40 years, just failed Presidential candidate?

Isn't that what Kerry is too? Even more so as he won his party's nomination? I wonder why they didn't describe Kerry with the same words?

I understand where you are going. I also don’t like those who overreach - on either side. However it was an incredibly stupid and dangerous statement for a secretary of state to make. Since we have so few in Congress willing to do/say squat I am happy for Gingrich to overreach in this case. :-)
