PJ Media ^ | 5/29/14 | Bridget Johnson

Posted on 05/29/2014 9:13:36 PM PDT by Nachum

Coming off a week where President Obama laid out an Afghanistan withdrawal timetable and put forth his foreign policy vision, Secretary of State John Kerry declared Thursday that this administration is “more engaged” with the world “than at any time in American history.” “I don’t think the president, frankly, takes enough credit for the successes that are on the table right now,” Kerry told PBS. “I mean, if you look at what has happened in Ukraine, the president led an effort to try to keep Europe unified with the United States, to put difficult sanctions on the table. Europe wasn’t

John Kerry once again proves to the world what a complete idiot he is. He’s giving Joe Biden a run for the money. Maybe he wants to be Biden’s VP.

I've known that clown since 1971 when he roamed Yale's campus, lecturing anyone who would listen on ANY subject, he being expert at everything, mind you.

They say that fine wines improve with age. Unfortunately for John Effin' Kerry, I don't believe that adage applies to either gin-soaked raisins OR gigolos.

First alleged human I ever met who had delusions of adequacy. Yet, somehow, we're still stuck with listening to this 'intellectual' bastard. How the devil does that work?

If my country and the liberty of its citizens weren’t being flushed down the toilet, these silly “ alternative universe” statements could even be entertaining. Right now, though, we’d be much much better off with the Three Stooges running WashDC for us.

Kerry: Obama Administration ‘More Engaged’ with the World ‘Than at Any Time in American History’

We've waited for years for a real giant to join the fray. We finally have one.

Compared to John Kerry, George Marshall, Henry Kissinger and George Shultz were midgets. Being a modern Democrat has to be the greatest gig in history. You can say anything, just anything, and a bunch of reporters will relay it as if what you say has any meaning.

LOL. Kerry should study up on his history. The period after WWII was by far the busiest and most engaged we have ever been. The UN, NATO, SEATO, and a host of other international organizations were set up in the post WWII period. And with the emergence of many new nations that were former colonies, we expanded our diplomatic representation exponentially.

There was also the Cold War and our policy of containment. US military forces were stationed all over the globe. We had over 500,000 troops in Europe alone.

Yeah but that statement is coming from the same clown that gave himself four Purple Hearts to run away from Vietnam, spent Christmas in Cambodia and called our soldiers rapists and murderers. So his record of veracity is highly suspect to say the least.

The explanation for sub-things such as Kerry is actually quite simple.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dunning%E2%80%93Kruger_effect

This is the Wiki for the Dunning-Kruger Effect. Like all Democrats, he honestly believes he is brighter than he is.

Combined with the Bell Curve by Herrnstein/Murrey, I think this justifies something MASSIVE as a final solution to a progressive political coup attempt.

Well said, m'FRiend.

Although, in Kerry's case, analysis is probably not as gratifying as a good old-fashioned kick in the ass.

Trust me, were that to occur, John Effin' Kerry wouldn't know whether to sh*t or go blind, he'd be that surprised.

Also to be considered is the fictional air-rifle constructed by the equally fictional German mechanic, von Herder if I recall correctly, from Conan Doyle's story "The Empty House".
