Kerry a man who lied to congress about his military views and got others who lied to the same congress about their service to this nation....they had never been in the military however, they testified as to the veracity of Kerry's accusations...being anti-Vietnam was in vogue for the politicians/congress, a corrupt group who gave Vietnam to the enemy. Good and true men took Kerry to the wood shed before for lying, it is my hope they will come forth once again and defend America's military from the likes of John Kerry. Bring on the Swift Boat ads............

Can’t say I was overly surprised by this. I almost have to admire Obama for the evil genius his displays.

Well, I guess he’s qualified. He spent three months in Vietnam during the war and even more time in Hanoi after coming home with all his “hero” medals.

John Kerry is unfit to be Secretary of State. If the citizens of his home state wish to continue to vote the known perjurer in as Senator, I can’t stop them. I can voice strenuous objection to him being other things, and I will.

Every day brings darker and darker news.

Maybe more concerning is the anti-American Senator Bob M. taking over the important Senate post.

I am living in a world I do not know and I’m only 30.

99-’13, things changed, and changed really dam fast.

The only hope I have left is, well, if they can do it (the commies) it can be done. It just doesn’t seem like any of us want to even try.

I think about this constantly, there is only two logical outcomes for real Americans/conservatives: total subjugation or separation.

I’m open to pondering any other real alternatives.

Well, Menendez certainly has experience with relationships in the Dominican Republic...I'm sure he'll be willing to bone up on relations with other nations as well.

Only God can help this nation of shame. We need turn to God and pray Daniel’s prayer in Daniel 9 from the heart and repent of our focus on everything under the sun but God and His ONLY provision for righteous living (Jesus Christ).

I received an email from Joel Rosenberg this morning (the whole message is on his blog) and he put it well:

“...the further we turn away from God in our nation — the further we drive Him out of our society, our of our schools and courts, and out of our media and out of our homes, or the more we give mere lip service to religion, the more men are “holding to a form of godliness, although they have denied its power” (2 Timothy 3:5) — the worse things are getting.

If you have the slightest bit of evidence that the Senate will not vote to get rid of this turkey, and kiss Barry-O's butt while doing it, then please cough it up.

This is a GOP Senate seat pick-up in MA, short of Deval Patrick deciding to blow his shot at a Presidential run in 2016. Because not a chance in hell does the next President come out of the Senate...

Worse the Hillary Klintoon. Kerry loathes America, liberty, Western values, the U.S. Constitution, a strong defense, a foreign policy in our own self-interest and loves every dictator and oppressive regime on the planet. A lot of good he’ll do! [/sarcasm]

I actually think Kerry will breeze through the confirmation process. The Senate is an old boys (and old girls) club, and they scratch each other’s backs. Had Obama put him up for Secretary of Defense, he probably would have had a fight on his hands. Kerry’s anti-military funding stance would have been a big issue. But I suspect Kerry will get only token opposition at State and will be confirmed by a large majority.

Not saying I think Kerry would be a good Secretary of State (I don’t), but I really don’t see the GOP kicking up a fuss over Kerry at State. As for Defense, I’m betting the buzz about Chuck Hagel is legit.
