When John Kerry was nominated to replace Hillary, Kerry was very clear on his priorities. During the hearings Kerry drew praise from Republicans and Democrats (Marxist/Progressives) as he spoke, sitting at the same witness table where, more than four decades earlier, he had testified as a Vietnam veteran-turned war protester. Senators nodded to his deep knowledge of overseas challenges, which Kerry said require more active diplomacy to advance US economic and security interests. Where Kerry was most passionate was on the issue of climate change, calling it a “life-threatening issue.”
“The solution to climate change is energy policy,” he said. “You want to do business and do it well in America; we got to get into the energy race.” He cited Massachusetts, where alternative energy is “growing faster than any other sector. . . . This is a job creator.”
“I will be a passionate advocate for this,” he added, “not based on ideology but facts.”
During the hearing McCain’s remarks carried special weight. Calling Kerry his friend, the 2008 Republican presidential nominee recalled their common experience in Southeast Asia during the war and their work on a special committee Kerry chaired in the early 1990s to investigate whether American soldiers were still being held in captivity.
“Through it all John led the committee with fairness to all sides . . . and unshakable resolve to get a result all members could accept,” McCain said, who was held as a prisoner of war in North Vietnam for 5½ years. “It was a masterful accomplishment.” He added: “I recommend his nomination without reservation.”
There was little doubt as to whom Kerry was at the time he was confirmed by a vote of 97 to 3. There was little doubt as to what kind of a Secretary of State he would be.
Lately, McCain has sounded less like a friend than a foe. In recent months he has branded Kerry a “human wrecking ball,” urged him to “recognize reality,” called him “delusional” and said he has “accomplished nothing except mileage as secretary of state.” Last month, for good measure, McCain suggested that he considers Iran’s Supreme Leader a more believable source on the nuclear talks than Kerry.
Kerry has not changed. McCain is in a fight for his political life in Arizona. It is politically not in McCain’s interest to defend his friend, John Kerry, so McCain does what John McCain has always done; say whatever he believes is in his best interest. Neither of the John’s ever could be believed and neither has changed.
Mostly the above speaks of hypocrisy with stupidity intertwined. It is the remarks by Margaret Carlson that are stupid and beyond belief. Carlson was asked about the Jihadists who have come into the United States illegally through the porus southern border. Her response was stupid, but it represents the beliefs of the Islamic Jihadist sympathizing Obama Marxist regime and their “useful idiots.”
Margaret Carlson stated, “those people who have snuck in…maybe they become Americanized, maybe the anger goes away. Maybe what they snuck in to do they’re not going to do, because we do have an acceptance of these people”
This is even more stupid than the Islamic Jihadist sympathizing Marxist Obama regime stating that what we need to do to stop ISIS is provide them with jobs.
If the Islamic Jihadists leaders were as stupid as the Islamic Jihadist sympathizing Marxist Obama regime, they would be a JV team. Instead, they are the pro team and it is the Islamic Jihadist sympathizing Marxist Obama regime that is the JV team.
