Feel I’m goin’ back to Massachusetts

Feel I’m goin’ back to Massachusetts

John Kerry to Be Nominated to Be Secretary of State, Sources Say:

Sources tell ABC News that President Obama has decided that he will nominate Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., to be secretary of state.

If confirmed, which he will be (emphasis mine):

If nominated by the president and confirmed by his colleagues in the Senate, Kerry would leave Congress, and Deval Patrick, Massachusetts’ Democratic governor, would appoint a replacement.

By state law, a special general election is required to take place 145 to 160 days after a vacancy occurs. So if Kerry were nominated, confirmed, and then stepped down on January 21 (Inauguration Day), the election would take place between June 14 and June 29, with primary elections being held six weeks earlier.

Scott Brown tells Senate colleagues: “We may meet again”:

Republican U.S. Sen. Scott Brown on Wednesday continued to leave open the possibility that he will run again for the U.S. Senate.

Brown opened his farewell speech on the Senate floor by saying it was his closing speech “for this session of the U.S. Senate.”

He concluded by saying that “defeat is temporary,” the same phrase he used in his concession speech after losing his seat to Democrat Elizabeth Warren. He added this time, speaking to his Senate colleagues, “Depending on what happens and where we go, all of us, we may meet again.”

One win. One Loss. Third time?

Well, with Hillary Clinton, we have a fraud and a Secretary of Inebriation. Now with Kerry, we’ll have a fraud and a Secretary of Ketchup.

It’s surreal. The incompetent continue to rise — meteorically — to their level of incompetence.

Clinton is a disgrace and a coward who should have resigned on 9/12/12. Kerry is an absolute disaster, incompetent and an insult to any American who has fought for this country. And good luck with embassy security under this joker. It’s hard to believe what dregs Obama is scraping up from the bottom of the leftist barrel to pay off his debts and financial supporters. Add Rice and Hagel and we are one and done.

As for a Scott Brown challenge and win. Remember Fauxcohantas. Not a chance.

    Sadly agree with your prediction – the average “Mass voter” is a “Mass hole” and I think GOD himself would lose if he chose to run on the R-ticket.

Aw gee whiz, now I’ve got the dulcet tones of Vera Lynn wafting through my mind…”We’ll meet again, don’t know where, don’t know when; but I know we’ll meet again some sunny day.”

Kerry…the fake Irishman of Boston…is a fake everything else.

He went to Vietnam with the express purpose of aping JFK, complete with his own movie camera.

What a complete narcissist chess board, if he is confirmed!

    Don’t forget Kerry the ‘fraudulent war hero.’

    Remember: Kerry refused to release his military records when the validity of his medals was challenged. In other words, he is guilty of stolen valor – no less than any other clown running around saying they won a war medal, and didn’t.

    Yes and he was thoroughly exposed during the 2004 election and yet being a democrat, he has no idea what shame is.

    Another point that I’ve noticed about those delegated to the Secretary of State positions, they have been people that by having been so appointed, they have been shut off from the domestic scene.

    Sorta like a form of political exile…

    And his personal fortune? He married the widow of a dead Republican Senator, John Heinz, to get all those bucks. Where I come from, they call that a gigolo.

    I heard yesterday that the Swift-Boaters are ready for Swift Boat II for this joker.

    Kerry is a self-aggrandizing, intellectually-dishonest, lying POS.

By the way: what idiot got in here today to check ‘thumbs down’ on everything anti-Kerry.

Who is responsible for locking the idiot door?

    A lower form of life in the invertebrate category having no spine or thought process…

    The P’fessor’s little blog has come up on DU, where I am banned for life multiple times, thanks for proxy servers. So, all the mindless, trolling, Obama-loving DU apparatchiks will be coming around. Most don’t have enough guts to string a cheap tennis racket, must less post something coherent.

    Yes, they reflexively hit the thumbs down button. Far from a bad thing, I think it’s a good, tangible sign that we get under their thin little perpetually, butt-hurt skins.

    Yes, banned for life from DU (at least 6 times) and proud of it. 😆

Is it possible to feel ennui and disgust at the same time? It’s what I feel about the entire political class of our country.

    That’s what we’ve got at the moment. But we control half. It’s time to fire the people we have the power to hire and fire.

    Anyone who doesn’t fight to that end should be content with ennui and save ‘disgust’ for themselves for having failed to stand up to the elected officials and GOP party administrators that they themselves control.

Massachusetts/Kerry…..TWANLOC…..’nuff said.

I honestly think John Kerry – liar and turncoat – is about the best we can hope for from Obama. He moves naturally among the privileged elite of the diplomatic world, and they dote on his French.

Brown should have a decent shot at winning the seat in a special election against an opponent without $46 million and Injun Mojo.

John Kerry pretends to be both a Boston Brahmin and an Irishman, which New Englanders know isn’t physically possible. I’m surprised he’s taking this position, since he doesn’t really have a record of “heavy lifting”.

I hear there is a fire hydrant in front of his new office in D.C.

Thought game: Try holding these two images in your mind’s eye at the same time: Secretary of State John Kerry along with Secretary of State James Madison (…or Thomas Jefferson…or James Monroe…or John Quincy Adams…or…)

Method #3 to rule mens’ souls, by Ellsworth Toohey in Ayn Rand’s The Fountainhead:

Kill man’s sense of values. Kill his capacity to recognize greatness or to achieve it. Great men can’t be ruled. We don’t want any great men. Don’t deny the conception of greatness. Destroy it from within. The great is the rare, the difficult, the exceptional. Set up standards of achievement open to all, to the least, to the most inept—and you stop the impetus to effort in all men, great or small. You stop all incentive to improvement, to excellence, to perfection… Don’t set out to raze all shrines—you’ll frighten men. Enshrine mediocrity—and the shrines are razed.

The democrats could put up a bottle of generic ketchup and Brown would lose [no disrespect to Brown].

But another 2-year Senate term? If he’s up for another statewide campaign, why not Governor?

A friend suggests that Governor “Coupe” Deval Patrick could nominate either Bill Weld or Richard Tisei to fill in until the special election; after all, they both could pass for good Democrats!

[…] defeated by Elizabeth “Fauxcahontas” Warren this past November, is poised to run in the special election to replace Kerry in the […]

I wonder which rich, white guy the Democrats will select to replace John Effing Kerry.
