Skip to comments.Secretary of State Petraeus would be John Kerry 2.0

Whether Trump will select Petraeus is one question. Whether Petraeus would make a good secretary of state, however, is another. Unfortunately, the answer to the latter is likely no. Much of the hagiography surrounding Petraeus is the product of politicking rather than a true judgment of history.

Still holding out for RUDY.
Madam Secretary of State Palin.
You read it here first.
NO Petraeus we don;t mrrd or want a JFKerry. Give us Gen Krlly UMC Ret.
NRA calls Petreus an anti-gun activist. That’s a deal breaker for me. Rohrabacher for SOS.

>> Still holding out for RUDY <<
Confirmation hearings could get very nasty, given Rudy’s questionable ties with foreign entities. As few as three Republican defections in the Senate could doom him (although it would take four ‘Pub defections if Manchin is pro-Rudy).
As for me, I’m with General Kelly.
I will take Romney over this guy.
I agree that the choices being rumored for Secretary of State including Romney, Petraeus, and Bob Corker are bad, but I’ve yet to see anyone on our side put out a suitable list of conservative options. Frankly, I can’t think of any off the top of my head. Guys like John Bolton and Rudy have lengthy globalist connections too. Maybe a no namer ends up in this position, and Trump with his staff essentially runs foreign policy from the White House. Can’t be any worse after eight years of incompetence from Crooked Hillary and Lerch.
Petraeus is damaged goods. Has demonstrated poor judgment. This would be disappointing. I’d take Romney over the general.
I am not a fan of his but it is hard to conceive of anyone being equally as incompetent as John Kerry.
NO Petreus. We already have an idea he is a cheat and unethical but being antigun is absolutely wrong. That means he is a liberal globalist.
PLEASE, no Petreus!! Please.
“Madam Secretary of State Palin.

Glad we only read it! Sorry, No Sale, a pretty face doesn’t make a good SoS.
They don’t want to pick Bolton it seems but if this selection process goes on for a few weeks, perhaps, he will get some consideration.
Sorry, but this story is another example of a political organization trying to raise money by publishing an outlandish story.
Petraeus has NOTHING in common with John Kerry.
Younger Americans forget that after a bad Navy tour in Vietnam, where he used wounds that weren’t even scratches to cut his tour short, Kerry then went to Paris where he became a representative for the VC at the Paris Peace Talks.
He then returned to the US and headed phony “War Crimes” tribunals, wherein supposed vets “confessed” to war crimes in Vietnam. In reality, most “witnesses” were never in military, or if they had been, they spent all their time in CONUS in some REMF job.
Kerry is a traitor, period, and Obama made him Secretary of State!
I doubt he would show up to negotiations with brutal dictators looking like he had his ass kicked like John Kerry did.
I see a lot of pushback about Bolton for his Bushie and (((globalist))) ties, but at least he’s a State man, at least he knows where the bodies are buried, at least he has a bad ass moustaches.
Personally, I would like Newt.
