John McCain: John
Kerry a ‘wrecking ball’

Politico, by Lucy McCalmont

Original Article

Posted By:Scottyboy, 11/15/2013 6:33:28 AM

Sen. John McCain had some blunt words to describe the policies of Secretary of State John Kerry. “This guy has been a human wrecking ball,” McCain said Thursday, according to reports. “I’m very disappointed.” (snip)The outlet reported that McCain also called Kerry a “friend” and said the two “have known each other well and worked together for a number of years.” However, McCain took another swipe saying, “They don’t know from one hour to the next where the plane is going.” “Fly into Riyadh and talk to the king of Saudi Arabia. Fly to Egypt and praise their steps towards democracy.” McCain’s office told

McCain´t must be vying for the job of SOS under President Christie. Just cannot think of what else would drive him to say anything bad about His Friend, the Esteemed Colleague From Across the Aisle.

Well, it takes one to know one, John. You have done nothing but wreak havoc on your fellow Republicans, just the conservatives ones, of course. You are the worst kind of political animal who will undercut any conservative to promote yourself. What have you done constructively for the party? You reach across the aisle and deliberately sabotage conservatives. The only principle you live by is self-preservation. If you really want to see a genuine wacko bird with brilliant plumage, just look in the mirror. Time to retire, John. You´ve done enough damage in Washington.

He has been a wrecking ball for over 40 years John, and NOW you notice?

Too little too late John, especially for those Vets who´s broken hearts were over strained by the last fight to restore the honor of hundreds of thousands, stolen by Hanoi John Boy and abetted by you. They at least had a chance so see just how widespread public support has become for Viet Nam Vets.

Oh Johnny Boy, you´ve said in the past, paraphrased, "the President deserves to have the people in positions of leadership that he wants" Oh, really? Now you say, Kerry is a "wrecking ball"? You were best buds with him not too long ago. Johnny Boy, let´s give you a hint. Kerry associated with the Viet Cong, testified against you service people in congress, lied about his "service" to this country, associated with the traitor Jane Fonda, and YOU helped make him, our Secretary of State? A "wrecking ball", really? Johnny Boy?

Amen to all the comments about McCain. The fact that he so vehemently protect Huma, Hill´s sidekick when a request was made of muslim brotherhood ties to this administration showed a lot of his character. He didn´t like someone linking his drinking buddy to closely to Huma.

And, it needs to be repeated time and time again.....McCain you are NOT the leader of the Republican Party so sit down and stuff a sock in your orifice.

Barack Obama got quite the handful on Thursday, April 10, but it was all for a good cause! As the President of the United States was boarding Air Force One with his wife Michelle Obama, a gust of wind blew up her skirt. Barack quickly stepped in and grabbed the First Lady´s billowing skirt to help her avoid a wardrobe malfunction and embarrassing Marilyn Monroe moment. Earlier in the week, another famous lady on the global stage suffered a similar snafu, but no one was around to help her -- not even her prince!

Global warming is not being taken seriously and time is running out to avoid consequences like flooded cities and dried out farmland, World Bank President Jim Yong Kim said Thursday. "We are quickly coming to the point where we are not going to be able to keep global warming below two degrees Celsius," Kim said at the start of the IMF-World Bank spring meetings in Washington. "Warming by two degrees Celsius is going to have major implications.... 40 percent of the arable land in Africa will be gone at two degrees Celsius; Bangkok could very well be underwater at two

An autopsy on Peaches Geldof was inconclusive and toxicology tests will be conducted in an attempt to determine what killed the 25-year-old celebrity, police said Wednesday. Geldof was pronounced dead by paramedics at her home in southeast England on Monday. Kent Police said a post-mortem examination had not revealed the cause and a toxicology report could take several weeks. Geldof, the daughter of Irish musician Bob Geldof and the late TV presenter Paula Yates, had worked as a model, writer and television show host. She grew up in the glare of Britain´s press, which reveled in the late-night antics of her teenage years, and

Why President Obama

The President is no economic illiterate, despite what conservatives think. He understands basic macroeconomics just fine, thank you – but with a twist. Mainstream Democrats worship at the altar of the New Deal. It’s an article of faith that massive government spending pulled America out of the Great Depression. (With all respect to Paul Krugman, the truth is more complicated, but that’s not within the scope of this article.)The president’s view of spending, deficits and debt is not merely Keynesian theory run amok. Its origins and objectives are far more terrifying. Where the traditional Democratic playbook for economic downturns was provided

WASHINGTON — About the only thing former President Ronald Reagan doesn´t have named after him is a mountain, not one recognized by the federal government anyway.(snip)Rep. Jared Huffman, D-Calif., said he thought DeFazio´s amendment was "terrific" but wanted to take it a step further and name the planet after Reagan. "We may want to consider going big with this Reagan-naming enthusiasm," Huffman said. "I´m beginning to see some possibilities in this." Huffman said his reasoning was that if the planet were named after Reagan, then Republicans might be more concerned with taking up legislation dealing with global warming.

GOP Will Repeal Obamacare

A majority of Americans believe that President Barack Obama’s signature health care law will be repealed. A new Rasmussen Reports poll found that 62 percent of likely voters believe that Republicans will repeal Obamacare, which recently marked its fourth anniversary. Only 23 percent of those polled believe that the health care law has been a success, compared to 46 percent who describe the law as a failure. Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, a potential 2016 presidential candidate, offered a Republican alternative to Obama’s health care overhaul last week, saying states should play a greater role in containing health care costs while

A hereditary peer has questioned whether flatulence caused by the country’s high consumption of baked beans is adding to global warming. Viscount Simon, 73, a Labour peer who has been a member of the House of Lords for more than 20 years, raised concerns about the “smelly emissions”. His comments came as energy minister Baroness Verma answered questions in the Upper House on how the Government was tackling climate change.(snip)Lady Verma described his question as “so different”. But she added: “You do actually raise a very important point, which is we do need to moderate our behaviour.”

Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead.

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast.

Some time back, whenever a big racial controversy erupted, I trained myself into the habit of reading about it at FoxNews.com, just for the unbelievable comment threads. Let’s put it this way: If my friends and I went out to a bar and started playing a “let’s write the racist FoxNews.com comment thread” drinking game, our efforts couldn’t begin to approach what I read there.I wasn’t alone. Liberal websites started feasting on these threads. And so, a couple of years ago, Ailes & Co. got wise. Stories about race were, at least in my disheartened experience, closed to comments.
