I agree. He should be dispatched to Antartica to count the penguins.

“”Experts on both sides believe he doesn’t have the credibility or ability to do any good if he shows up there.””

Gosh! We don’t even have to be experts to know he doesn’t have a clue about much of anything. He was in the Senate for so many years he never had to do or know anything. That followed him right to the State Department.

America's Secretary of State is without credibility and sans ability.

But we already knew that...

I suggest a new mission for the esteemed S of S—go count, planet wide, the number of discarded tires and lug nuts cluttering up roadways and junk piles. This information is key to solving any number of pressing problems,and no one better than johnnie f Kerry can bring gravitas to such vital matters.

People in MA think John Kerry is as near royalty as a Kennedy.

Besides his stint as a tax-evading multimillionaire, he should have gone to the gallows for treason forty years ago. Thanks Biggirl.

As we know, John Kerry only likes low-level war zones where he can give himself minor flesh wounds and apply for Purple Hearts. So Israel is much too dangerous for him now.

And since Bibi Netanyahu seems serious about eliminating Hamas once and for all, by the time the current hostilities end, no Hamas leaders will be left to sit down at the negotiating table for another of John Kerry’s peace-process charades.

Thanks.

Unfortunately, the U.S. relationships with Egypt and Turkey have both deteriorated since 2012. Morsi was ousted in a military coup and imprisoned, and the new Egyptian leadership has significantly less influence with Hamas. The Turkey-Israel relationship is also in shambles, hurting Ankara’s ability to be constructive player.

Obama's teams are so lame they're not wanted anywhere... Kerry's a fool... all he'll do is make things worse.

Hey, look at the bright side, this is the first time the Palestinians and the Israelis have found common ground and sincerely agreed upon anything in my lifetime

Not even JIMMAY, Rabbit Boy KATAH had such a lame team.
This team will go down in history as the worst of the worst.
Starting at the top. Our fearless community organizer.
