Howie Carr: Memo to D.C.: Take Kerry, hes all yours
Boston Herald ^ | January 25, 2013 | Howie Carr

Posted on 01/25/2013 5:39:30 AM PST by Zakeet

None of his fellow solons was impolite enough yesterday to ask U.S. Sen. John Forbes Kerry the only question anybody really wants him to answer.

“Senator, are you really worth $193 million?”

[Snip

Nobody questioned Kerry about his famous initial 1971 appearance before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, recounting the stories of other Vietnam veterans (which he’d been told, he made sure to say) “of times that they personally raped, cut off ears, cut off heads, taped wires from portable radios to human genitals, cut off limbs, blew up bodies, randomly shot at civilians, razed villages in fashion reminiscent of Genghis Khan ...”

Which he pronounced Gin-ghis Khan.

No senator called him on that slur, either. Here’s another question he should have been asked: “Sen. Kerry, name one foreign policy issue you’ve been right about. Just one.”

Like, say, the nuclear freeze. Or the first Iraq War (against) or the second (he was for it). Do you still think Bashar al-Assad of Syria is a reformer, a fine fellow indeed? And speaking of being a fine judge of character, how’d you happen to pick John Edwards as your running mate in 2004?

Can you name one foreign policy issue you’ve been right about? Just one?

So the Senate will confirm him to get him the hell out of the Senate? And Massachusetts can then crown a new Democrat for the Senate? OH BOY!!!! Fun times ahead!

When Kerry is your second choice, you know how bad the first choice was. I think this asshat thinks he will use this as a stepping stone to 2016. He is nothing but a social gigalo on a fool’s mission.

But Kerry did hit one out of the park: “I will not take it personally that this is the one thing in Washington that seems to have united Democrats and 
Republicans — to get me out of the Senate.”

You got that one right, Liveshot. In the name of God, go.

"You have been sat too long here for any good you have been doing. Depart, I say, and let us have done with you. In the name of god, go!.”

This is yet another example of the outright corruption and depravity of a federal government that it would think a man like this is qualified for anything.

DC is an open sewer.

I can think of a few pointed questions to ask the traitorous SOB!

Senator, how do you feel about the wholesale massacre of South Vietnamese by the NVA after our departure?

How do you justify your participation in the totally discredited "Winter Soldier" farce?

Under whose auspices did you have to travel to the Paris Peace talks and meet witth representatives of the VC?

Whose medals did you throw over the fence at Dewey Canyon III?

Well, look at the POS that we have/had with Hitlery: a known thief, liar, traitor, homosexual, murderer, and perjurer. They're both scum.

Say goodbye to our kind and loving and proud country. We are in the process of being totally crumbled from the top down.

Time for John O’Neil and other real swift boat veterans to once run that add on TV over and over again. Would be great if Colonel George Day, who holds the MOH and has called Kerry a traitor, would testify. He could then look at that worthless Juan McShame and call him one too for supporting this lying, treasonous anti-American goon.

GOD DENIERS AND CONGENITAL LIARS

WANT YOUR MONEY AND YOUR GUNS
WHY ARE THE GOPES IN THE SENATE HELPING THEM ?

The guy that called this right was Rush Limbaugh. The hearings of both Clinton and the “Cambodian Kid” were emetics. (pukers)
Johnson was on course but her “What does it matter” prep by her handlers and saluted as “superior debating skill” by NBC, ABC,BCS,CNN,and almost all of the print media WaPo,NYT etc seemed to me to throw Johnson off. Plus he ran out of time. Paul was on the money. But that’s two out of what 4 dozen plus senators. A good senate leader would have gathered the troops and held a counter press conference instead of fawning over these two phoneys expose them.

More proof that it is all just a big power party. Senators know Kerry is inept, corrupt, unfit for a Cabinet post, etc. yet they will all cast a vote for him to be SOS.

What a joke this system of government has become. Our Founding Fathers must be spinning in their graves.

That's an absolute slander you wing nut! Kerry met with both sides in Paris. The North Vietnamese and the Viet Cong!
