President Obama nominating
John Kerry to be next
secretary of state

Boston Globe, by Glen Johnson

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 12/21/2012 10:44:56 AM

President Obama is poised to nominate Senator John F. Kerry this afternoon to be the country’s next secretary of state, according to Washington officials briefed on the decision. The announcement was to come after Kerry returned from the National Cathedral in Washington, where he was attending the funeral of former colleague Senator Daniel Inouye. The White House planned to add the announcement to the president’s schedule, said the officials, who demanded anonymity to preempt the formal announcement.

I think this choice is quite proper. Who better than Kerry to represent Obama´s gutless, appeasing, apologizing and cowardly foreign policy?

The F stands for flexible, as in anything goes if you hate America as much as John Forbes Kerry and Obama. Who needs respect when you can appease.

And I am sure that none of his "good friends across the aisle" will dare to ask why he was discharged from the Navy with a less than honorable discharge. Or call him out on his treasonous activities to including throwing military medals and conducting unofficial state negotiations contrary to US position in a time of war.

Look for the liberal Democrats in Massachusetts to change the law there and again give the liberal Democrat Governor the authority to appoint Kerry´s replacement in the US Senate permanently, if it looks like a Republican could win the special election.

That´s the way it used to be there until the liberal Democrats set up the current special election process to keep a former Republican Governor from appointing a replacement after Ted Kennedy passed away.

Questions from Senator Deepthinker:

1. What message does it send to our allies to appoint you, who worked so hard to sell the South Vietnamese down the river?

2. How can we take your testimony here seriously after you lied repeatedly , on the Senate floor, about spending Christmas in Cambodia and listening to President Nixon on the wireless--when you had returned from South East Asia BEFORE Nixon became president?

Just getting started...

Our postmodern reprise of the Sixties would not be complete without the Left wing anti-Vietnam war radical, John Kerry. The whole scene reminds me of the cast members of a stage performance coming back on stage to rounds of applause. The performance was the Sixties and that followed - and the applause is coming mainly from the cast members themselves.

The next four years won´t be pretty, but the good news is that there is reason to hope that they will educate an electorate that is sorely in need of instruction as to how to select its leaders in the future. Some people -most people, it seems- must learn the hard way.

Too bad the Stupid Party (GOP) doesn´t give Senator Liveshot the same treatment the Democrats gave folks like Senator Tower (RIP) from Texas when he was nominated for the cabinet.

(Video) Hillary Clinton cancelled her planned appearance as the headline speaker at next week’s Western Healthcare Leadership Academy in San Diego due to planned protests over her failed leadership involvement in the Benghazi attacks. She will now be doing the speech via teleconference. Jan Iverson, the leader of a group formed in response to the Benghazi fiasco and Hillary’s subsequent inane statement, named “The Difference Matters,” said: She is not welcome here in San Diego by so many of us. We don’t want her here. It is encouraging to see that citizen involvement at this level can have significant effect.

President Obama was doing his favorite thing this week: talking to crowds of adoring young people who already agree with him while acting like he persuaded them about something. They also seemed to give Obama the impression that he’s a really funny guy. On Wednesday, he told a University of Michigan crowd of 1,400 that he visited a local deli, Zingerman’s. He proceeded to tell a long story about ordering the small Reuben sandwich, which he said was “killer.” That got a good laugh. Then he explained how he thought the sandwich was too big, so he shared it with

Senate Republicans already have their agenda set should they take the majority this fall. Seven months before the election, the GOP senators in line to become committee chairmen know what they would do with their gavels. In interviews with The Hill, the senators promised to work closely with House Republicans to break the legislative gridlock that has defined Congress since 2011. They are also vowing to step up oversight of the Obama administration dramatically and battle the president’s use of administrative power. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.) has vowed that if elected majority leader, he would give Republican committee

President Barack Obama contended that the government did not “make a hard sell” for Obamacare, despite his administration spending nearly $700 million to promote the law. “We didn’t make a hard sell,” Obama said in the Rose Garden on Tuesday, praising the 7.1 million sign ups for the Affordable Care Act. “We didn’t have billions of dollars of commercials like some critics did.” However, last July the Associated Press reported that Obamacare’s marketing campaign would cost at least $684 million. Taxpayer funding went to all 50 states in efforts to encourage people to enroll, including nearly $28 million for the

In an all-night meeting brokered by U.S. diplomat Martin Indyk, Israel’s chief negotiator Tzipi Livni told her Palestinian counterparts that since the Palestinians had taken unilateral steps toward greater recognition by the United Nations, the Israeli government would cancel the final release of 26 long-serving Palestinian prisoners, according to Israeli officials close to the talks.

But what almost no one is saying: change gun laws. The Fort Hood attack is the latest in a string of mass shootings, from the Navy Yard attack in September to a shooting at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin the year before, where the response from Washington has shifted from guns – to the shooters who wield them.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – President Obama compared the Republican budget plan to a "stinkburger" or "meanwich" during a speech here Wednesday, using a series of zingers in an attempt to strike a contrast with the GOP on economic issues in an election year. In a speech to an enthusiastic crowd of 1,400 at the University of Michigan, Obama repeatedly mocked Republican ideas about how to improve the economy, as he touted his own proposal to raise the minimum wage. Obama, who visited the local Zingerman´s deli before the speech, said that Republican proposals to cut taxes for wealthier Americans and

Sources on the ground in Benghazi during the 2012 terror attack are pushing back hard on former CIA acting director Mike Morell´s testimony on Capitol Hill, where he defended his role in shaping the administration´s narrative and claimed politics were not involved. As part of Morell´s testimony on Wednesday, the former acting and deputy CIA director acknowledged that he overruled the guidance of the top CIA officer in Libya at the time. That official told Morell the attack was not an "escalation of protests," but Morell said he had to weigh that against analysts who concluded the opposite. He ultimately went

Do you think members of Congress are overpaid or underpaid? Most likely you’d go with the former, but Democratic congressman Jim Moran argues it’s actually the latter. In an interview with CQ Roll Call, Moran says, “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid.” The House recently took up a bill to freeze members’ paychecks, placing another halt on the annual cost-of-living pay increases they would normally get and keeping annual salary at $174,000. Moran believes that this is the wrong way to go, not necessarily talking about himself in particular, but saying there

With Chris Christie in deep trouble, Republican poobahs are reportedly looking to Jeb Bush to save their party in 2016. The former two-term governor of Florida speaks fluent Spanish, is a convert to Catholicism, and has high name recognition. Jeb could raise millions of dollars over night by just saying “yes” to running. Despite all this, there are strong reasons Republicans should say no to him. 1. His last name is poison. Let’s face it, if Jeb Bush had the last name of Something Else he would have already run for president in 2008 or 2012. According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll registered voters were asked if they would definitely NOT vote for Jeb Bush and 50 percent said they would not.

The human kindling that makes up the flammable Republican base may soon burst into flames, again. Portions of that excitable cohort are looking — some with fawn-like eyes filled with hurt, others with sparks shooting from eyes narrowed like gun slits — askance at other Republicans urging Jeb Bush to seek the 2016 presidential nomination. A candidacy by Florida’s former governor would be desirable. But if Republicans want to avoid intra-party carnage, they should be very careful about doing what The Post recently reported: “Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel is "looking" at banning the sale of tobacco at military installations. According to one military publication, Hagel appears to support it. "As the Navy considers banning tobacco sales on all bases and ships, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel gave a strong endorsement of the review Monday, and suggested that he would be in favor of a ban," reports Stars and Stripes. “I don’t know if there’s anybody in America who still thinks that tobacco is good for you,” Stars and Stripes quotes Hagel as saying. “We don’t allow smoking in any of our government buildings. Restaurants, states, [and]

Sarah Palin continues to act in ways that confirm some of the more negative things said about her. For example, she’s taken to Facebook to attack the most recent budget plan by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan.(Snip)Whatever differences Ms. Palin may have with the Ryan plan–and perhaps she’ll take the time to offer an actual critique of if rather than a Facebook entry with lots of upper case words–it’s hardly a joke. But what might elicit a roll of the eyes is comparing Ms. Palin’s views now versus what they were nearly four years ago. Consider this: On December

At a press conference to push legislation to raise the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) criticized industrialists David and Charles Koch, calling them “shadow billionaires” who use their wealth to “rig our political system.” Reid’s sharp comments come on a day when the Wall Street Journal published a commentary written by Charles Koch, in which he described the brothers’ decision to get involved in politics to preserve the individual freedom and free markets that he said are the pillars of the American republic. “These two men are a pair of shadow billionaires spending
