Years ago, then Senator Kerry said, “Nothing bad happened in Viet Nam after we left.”

I feel certain China will tremble when it is learned that Lurch served in Vietnam

Having a military man as Secretary of State projects a vivion of power

His name Lurch has taken on more significance as he Lurches from failure to failure

Help me out here. Does Kerry ride little girl pink bicycles, or does he sniff little girl bicycle seats. I forget.

Kerry is finding out what it is like trying to muscle other nations with no muscle and a bone head at the helm of a once great America.

See Kerry, the whole world is not impressed with your blabber and weak minded ideology.

What a horrible mess these freaks have made.

I just returned from China, while there I had a fellow on the street come up and ask if I was an American. I replied, yes. At that he told me that “Obama is pussy” “Obama weak man”.

I had to agree with that but I told him that just because obama is a weak leader not to make the same mistake Japan made when they made the same mis-calculation and bombed Pearl Harbor.

Traitorkerry should have been indicted, tried, convict, sentenced and hanged for treason decades ago or any time since then. Treason has no statue of limitations. Do some traitorous president give this oxygen thief a pardon?

Those tensions should concern the US as much as the price of beans in China. It's obvious why Kerry got Hill's old job. He's playing the shill to make it look like her time as Secretary was performed to perfection and that includes Benghazi.

You meant Vivian, right? I picture Kerry as more of a Sheila then Vivian.

In six short years America went from the most powerful nation on earth to almost irrelevant; a laughing stock if you will.

With the right leadership, we can restore America to its previous position in six short months, but there is no will of the people.

We can sit back and blame the politicians for everything, but ultimately it is a failure of “we the people” and the attitude of “there is nothing we can do about it”!

Well, perhaps its fortunate that Kerry (who served in Vietnam in case you didn’t know) didn’t fall from that little pink girl’s bicycle he rode. He would have deserved (in his mind) another purple heart and a commendation for gallantry.
