‘”We will bring back, for the only time, waterboarding to get the truth out of him,” McCain quipped at a news conference.’

Can you imagine what the righties’ response would be if Obama cracked a joke like that? Whew…

@4angry, there would be a 200-300 post count comment board with righties expressing their righteous indignation.

The proud Vietnam Vet. He came back called his fellow soldiers murders and baby killers and threw his medals over the fence at the white house. Since then he bought new medals to display in his office and uses the Vietnam Vet status every chance he can to promote himself. For that he will always be unworthy to me.
Unless he apologizes and asks his fellow Vets for their forgiveness, he could even choke up during it which seems to be so popular these days, he should NOT be confirmed. And THAT should be the reason.

Good choice! Kerry has clout and friends abroad. His long homely face exudes trust, unlike the Slick Mitzy.
He IS a good ole boy which will help president Obama open doors instead of closing them. On a bipartisan note, he will please the GOP better than Hillary. As far as Iraq, Syria & N.Korea? It won’t matter who is Sec., as they have their own agenda and care less what we think.

I had worries that McCain was getting senile when he picked sister sarah as a VP and spouted that the economy was sound. That was in 2007/2008. 5 years later my worries have been confirmed. Somebody needs to drive the old fart back to one of his houses.( he doesn’t remember how many he has or where they are)

If he is so ready and all-knowleadgeable and knows all political and military leaders and fully conversant with the intricacies of U.S. policy what were the qualifications of Madame Clinton when she was appointed as Sec. of State? The same maybe that will get her into the White House in 2016 ? -If she could put up with Bill all this years then she can handle anything-?

Of course Congress loves him. Kerry is wealthy. His net worth is about $200 million. He is one of the chosen few.

If we can survive four years of Hillary I guess another ugly Liberal won’t do much more damage.

All these anti-Kerry comments gotta insult any democrat appointed by Obama . Kerry just happens to be liked by most of the congress on both sides of the aisle so he definately will be an assett to our country as the Secretary . I would prefer Hillary she did a wonderful job as Secretary but Kerry is a great patriotic also.
