Newsmax ^ | July 5, 2013 | Todd Beamon

Posted on 07/06/2013 8:51:43 AM PDT by rickmichaels

A spokeswoman for Secretary of State John Kerry reversed herself on Friday, now saying that Kerry was — indeed — sailing in Massachusetts as Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi was ousted in a military coup.

I'm sailing away, Set an open course for the virgin sea, 'Cause I've got to be free, Free to face the life that's ahead of me, On board, I'm the captain, so climb aboard, We'll search for tomorrow on every shore, And I'll try, Oh Lord I'll try, to carry on

I look to the sea, Reflections in the waves spark my memory, Some happy, some sad, I think of childhood friends and the dreams we had, We lived happily forever, so the story goes, But somehow we missed out on the pot of gold But we'll try best that we can to carry on

A gathering of angels appeared above my head, They sang to me this song of hope and this is what they said, They said come sail away, come sail away, come sail away with me lads, Come sail away, come sail away, come sail away with me, Come sail away, come sail away, come sail away with me baby, Come sail away, come sail away, come sail away with me

I thought that they were angels, but to my surprise, We climbed aboard Isabella, we headed for the seas, Singing come sail away, come sail away, come sail away with me lads

Come sail away, come sail away, come sail away with me Come sail away, come sail away, come sail away with me Come sail away, come sail away, come sail away with me...

He wasn’t sailing! He was floating ideas on what to do about Egypt.

If he had adequate warning that the Egyptian government was in grave danger and then he went windsailing he was irresponsible. Everybody else seemed to feel the then current Egyptian government was in trouble.

I’m glad he was sailing. It is clear that Obama was going to support Morisi which was the wrong call.

I wish the entire Obama adminstration would go sailing for a couple of years.

I also am beginning to think the Egyptian army timed the take over for when Obama was out of town and distracted so that he could not intervene on behalf of Morisi.

We had Frequent Flyer Panetta as Secretary of Defense refusing to move his family to Washington and then flying home every weekend while we are at war. Now, we have Serial Sailor Kerry going for jaunts when serving as Secretary of State while the Middle East explodes. Why, it’s almost like he’s getting paid by someone other than the American taxpayers.

Good point. I wish the entire cabinet would set to sea under Captain Kerry’s command. The world would be a much safer place, and those which are not would resolve much more quickly.

This is so f***ing stupid. AND, it’s an example of why people hate politics.

Whether John Kerry was sailing, or in the command center, or in Cairo, he would have done the same lameass incompetent job which he has been famous for for forty years or more.

That he was on his yacht IS OF NO CONSEQUENCE TO ANY PERSON IN THE WORLD, LIVING OR DEAD.

Sheesh.

I sat watching CNN International as they broadcast live. I was expecting the Army to make a move - and I watched it live on TV. How come Kerry didn’t see it coming?

This boat upon which Kerry was sailing; was it a Slow Boat or a Swift Boat?

I presume the former, since Swift Boat men want nothing to do with Kerry while much of the American populace wishes he were on a SLOW boat to China, Madagascar (perhaps as a gift to King Julian of the Lemurs?), any place but here in the USA.

Yes, but the reason Congress (which in American Constitutional theory embodies the sovereignty of the People) has a 9% approval rating is because of crap like this article.

Kerry should be fired, not because he was on his stupid yacht, but because he is a lameass incompetent.

People who complain that Kerry was on his yacht are people who don’t get what’s really wrong with him.

I suspect Congress’ approval rating has more to do with their actions than with opinion articles.

Good afternoon. This is pretty good...

IT IS OF GREAT CONSEQUENCE TO THE SANE PEOPLE OF THE WORLD THAT THE IMAGE OF INCOMPETENCE AND ARROGANCE MATCHES THE ACTIONS OF INCOMPETENCE AND ARROGANCE OF THE 0BAMA ADMINISTRATION.

Please allow me to edit etc...

IT IS OF GREAT CONSEQUENCE TO THE SANE PEOPLE OF THE WORLD THAT THE IMAGE (provided by the state controlled media) OF INCOMPETENCE AND ARROGANCE MATCHES THE ACTIONS (current death and destruction on the ground) OF INCOMPETENCE AND ARROGANCE OF THE 0BAMA ADMINISTRATION.

Definitely accurate either way.

The problem is not that he was sailing. The problem is that the state department lied straight to the people. And no one in the propaganda media will call them on it. Our government is more than corrupt. It is criminal.

The likely next explanation...

... Secretary of State, and Viet Nam veteran, John Kerry spent the day patrolling the eastern seaboard to ensure the safety of millions along the eastern coast during the Independence Day holiday weekend. The Honorable John Kerry will be awarded the Navy Cross for his heroic service and conspicuous display of valor.
