CHARLOTTE, N.C.--Democratic Senator John Kerry denounced Mitt Romney's approach to world affairs on Thursday and praised President Barack Obama's handling of national security, telling any doubters to "ask Osama Bin Laden if he's better off now than he was four years ago!" The decorated veteran and foreign policy expert also accused Romney of getting his information about Russia from "Rocky IV."
"Here's the choice in 2012: Mitt Romney--out of touch at home, out of his depth abroad, and out of the mainstream?" Kerry said in a red-meat speech on the final night of the Democratic National Convention.
"Or, Barack Obamaa President giving new life and truth to America's indispensable role in the world, a Commander in Chief who gives our troops the tools and training they need in war, the honor and help they've earned when they come home? A man who will never ask other men and women to fight a war without a plan to win the peace," he said.

If we fail reeducation camp will we be better off or like Osama?
It’s true: Like nearly everyone in America, OBL was better off under Bush.
And Mullah Omar’s still doin’ fine, you gigolo.
We could have asked that years ago if Clinton had done the deed at every opportunity that was presented to him.
“A man who will never ask other men and women to fight a war without a plan to win the peace,”
Really? Whats the plan to stop getting Afghan soldiers to kill US soldiers? Whats our plan to stop the taliban from taking over the day we leave there?
“out of touch at home, out of his depth abroad, and out of the mainstream?”
Sounds like Obama.
Them dang piss azzs keep taking credit for what the other side accomplished.
When did Bin Laden become an American and as a nation are we better since he was killed? Most people stopped caring the last time they had to fill up their tanks with gas!
Kerry is a filthy, lying coward. What the hell does he know about foreign affairs? All he has to show are a few scratches from a bush in Vietnam.
This is an argument the Dems will sorely regret starting. Yes, OBL is dead, but 23 million Americans are still out of work. Yes, OBL is dead but over 5 trillion in new debt has been thrown onto our children’s back. Yes, OBL is dead but gas prices are more than double from when Obama took office.
This can go on and on. Are Americans happy Osama is dead? Sure, but it hasn’t done anything for the economy, which is still first and foremost for Americans.
It isn’t like Obama ordered the final operation anyway. It was Hillary! and the SecDef who ordered the SEAL’s in, and Obama had to be dragged off the golf course so he could see the operation in progress. Also, we had two other opportunities to get OBL since 2009 that Obama did NOT take.
Sounds like the voice of a true warrior ... someone who wouldn’t ever think of accepting a purple heart for flesh wounds, someone who would never think of tossing his medals away. Gee, I love to hear from true warriors. True patriots. True BS artists.
Why would I give credence to anything his idiot has to say?
Angry rant over, for now.
Not many half-black guys get to brag about killing a housebound old man in front of his wives and children.
Bin Laden is dead thanks to Bush’s policies. Obama had to be prodded by Hillary to give the final go ahead and then he wrote a memo blaming Gen McRaven if it wasn’t a success.
Dems overplaying their hand bragging about UBL. Unseemly.
I stopped right there. This moonbat Olivier Knox at Yahoo is a real Kool-aide drinker.
I just might ask him myself, just tell me which location the Dem’s favorite son will be voting it and I may just have to show up to ask him myself!
I think that yes, Osama is better off now than he was four years ago. His kidney troubles are over. He no longer needs to hide, and now that he is dead, he can vote for Obama, lol
Pruneface has no grounds to comment on US military activities.
Thanks Free ThinkerNY.
I remember reading somewhere that John Kerry was in Vietnam.
Yahoo News usually lives up to its name.
Obama did his best to protect him. He called off the hit several times!
Why would I ask that question of bin Ladin? Is he running for re-election?
Typical Dem deflection.
Osama Bin Laden is the only unemployed person Obama wants credit for.
mrs heitz’s wife is trying to play tough?
as long as she foots the bill, i guess this American basher, imitation war hero, ultra liar, will always be better off no matter what.
sissybitch needs to go back in the kitchen and wash some dishes.
Don’t you love how the party that historically has shown nothing but contempt for the military, is now falling all over themselves to take credit for the military’s accomplishment? (And one that any president would have jumped at?)
How about the onslaught of media criticizing W for landing on a Carrier with a banner, made up and displayed by the crew... Not W, after Bagdad fell?
It’s ok to spike when it is a D right? (For the record... Glad Oby is taking a dirt nap)
God Bless our Men and Women in Uniform that carry out these missions!
How dare they take credit!!
F these slime balls.. Hey Reince, or however you spell your name... How about funding a couple of kids with brains and a Pro-Tools setup to refute these scumbags at every turn??
Maybe then I might give you a dime... Might
Funny as a crutch....Potsie....
I thought he was going to make that L sign for loser on his forehead. Hey John....remember 2004?
Clarifying Oby = Osama Bin Laden
How f’d up is it that I have to review my post?
Obama’s content to keep letting our soldiers get murdered by their so-called allies indefinitely.
Ask Achmedinijad, Putin and the Muslim Brotherhood if they are better off.
[[Kerry: Ask Osama bin Laden if hes better off now than 4 years ago]]
No kerry- we don’t give a rats ass abotu osama bin laden- we do however care a great deal about families STARVING to death in America and whole families sleeping otu on the streets thanks to whiny o’s complete lack of leadership- Get a clue kerry- America is hurting badly thanks to your underqualified thug of a president who parties while americans suffer in record numbers- and your beloved whiner i nchief is threatenign MORE taxes? Noi kerry- we’re asking AMERICANS if they are better off today and we’re gettign a resounding NO!!! Screw osama bin laden-
[[Kerry is a filthy, lying coward. What the hell does he know about foreign affairs?]]
The ONLY thing he knows abotu foreign affairs is how to udnermine a sitting president when that president is of the opposite party like he and others did to President Bush-
Osama bin Laden is better off, he’s no longer in Pakistan.
The better question is, are the Navy SEALS better off then they were 4 years ago ?
I briefly saw Kerry speak, well I had the tv on mute.....but did it look like he had less wrinkles....botox maybe?
Why the hell are these a-holes spiking the football at their convention?
Ask Kerry if he was better off before he met his wife!
John Kerry? Isn’t he the one who was in Vietnam?
Kerry convention salute=epic failure! This guys just don’t know when to quit do they?!
Obama taking credit for Bin Laden’s death, which has been on autopilot since Bush sent the military out to take him down, is like the proverbial crowing rooster taking credit for the sunrise......
Kerry's plastic surgery didn't help; he still resembles Frankenstein, and worse, he acts like him
