Skip to comments.Obama to nominate Senator John Kerry as next secretary of state (truncated title)
Posted on 12/21/2012 8:46:45 AM PST by 1066AD
A senior administration official said on Friday that President Barack Obama will nominate Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass. as his next secretary of state this afternoon from the White House.
The 69-year-old, who began his tenure in the Senate in 1985, is expected to be a shoo-in during the Congressional confirmation process and will fill the vacancy left by outgoing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
The expected announcement will come after the president's top choice for the spot, U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice, took herself out of the running for the post given the controversy over her reaction to the attacks on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi on September 11.

Great . . . two national traitors in a row in a very sensitive position. I feel so sorry for this country and what it’s turned in to.
He was against him before he was for him.
Don’t the dims have any bright new stars? It seems they keep digging up their worst from their past.........
Senator John Kerry as next secretary of state
Here he comes to save the day....!
3 Purple Hearts, 1 Band-Aid. And a Silver Star for gunning down in a single fleeing enemy soldier.
The chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee _ and possibly the next secretary of state _ says mistakes were made at the State Department in the deadly Sept. 11 assault in Libya, but Congress shares some of the blame. Kerry also faults lawmakers for failing to provide sufficient funds to the State Department.
We just might see a President John Kerry after all. Bet he’ll be running.
We’d have been better off if the Mayans were right.
“Senator Kerry, I remind you that you are under oath. Is it not true that you were dishonorably discharged? And if not, will you release your records to demonstrate that fact?”
Well, he was in Viet Nam, doncha know...
Wasn’t that where he got his butt shot off?
Tonkin is rotating in his grave right now...
Wasnt that where he got his butt shot off?
= = = = = = = = = = = = = =
Target that big hard to miss.
“Kiss my Arse”...”Mark the spot.- YOU are all Arse”.
Kerry just another in the line of losers and Arseholes the people of MA just have foisted upon us.
IF they hate “US” that bad, maybe they are the ones that should secede.
They are saving their Hispanics for 2016. Mayor Julian Castro or Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa. Pass amnesty, then run one of these “diverse candidates”.
By best guess is, he will be confirmed by at least 90 votes.
Sad sad sad.
"DID YOU KNOW HE SERVED IN VIET NAM?"
I cannot believe this traitorous asshole would be nominated for ANYTHING but a Trial......what an asshole.
MamaT is going to love this gig. She’ll be able to flit all over the world on OUR DIME just like Cohen’s wife Janet Langhart.
Only positive is we’ll finally get him out of MA.
So he claims.
But the real question is: "Where was he when Teresa cut his...uh, well, you know...off and displayed them in a mayonnaise jar on the mantle of the Heinz mansion?"
But, then, on the other hand, who really gives a rat's ass as to what happens or has happened to the horse-faced son of a bitch?
He's a traitor and a liar.
Not too much different from his soon-to-be predecessor, Hillery, or his soon-to-be employer, obama.
(Lack of capitalization for obama is intentional.)
Well, at least he has some experience in foreign diplomacy (unlike Arkie Hillary)....he has all that Paris Peace talk experience as a liaison for the Viet Cong.....remember?
Turbo Tax Cheat Timmy for the IRS and a Coward for Secretary of State.
Personally, I think cuckolded Wife of the Impeached is the greater outrage for SOS, but most American voters and many “freepers” here decided that Hussein knows best for America....
FU Hussein Heads!
Someone remind me...did he serve in Vietnam?
Seriously, this jackass is Susan Rice with maybe a teaspoon more testosterone.
Yes, what about all the lying after NAM
AND.....he speaks French...dontchaknow?
God help us all. May Kerry run out the clock at three score and ten.
You guys are slackin!
So if Obama cannot appoint a stupid woman he will appoint a cowardly Gigolo.
More 'cover story' grand standing by 0bama to create the false impression that he and his staff are working on behalf of our Constitution when in actuality they're trying to kill it, along with our superpower status.
A lot of good people opposed the war, but some, like John Kerry, went too far. He joined the radical left wing of the anti-war movement and shared the microphone with Jane Fonda and other radicals. He promoted himself by telling unforgivable lies about Vietnam servicemen and women, and he did this under oath. Read more at http://www.wnd.com/2004/05/24667/#dopautq1Iq0XzFpJ.99
Two jackass socialists in a row, nominated by this most miserable lying phony to ever occupy the White Hut and then to be confirmed by a gaggle of imbecilic goofy asshats!!
Kerry is a walking joke. Not just his lurch-like appearance, his large hair and his tall frame, but his lame-brained demeanor. How this homely freak of a man ever became a gigolo and married the ketchup heiress will remain one of life’s mysteries.
He, like the fatso before him, will lumber through the halls of foreign governments making honest Americans wince every time they see his unsightly countenance (dis)grace the television screen.
God help these (dis)United States of America!
It’s enough to make many of us feel like ‘The Man Without A Country.’
Oh good, one traitor nominates another. The country continues to sink lower and lower...............
Indeed. 0bama continues his campaign to scuttle or smother any further discussion or ACCOUNTABILITY for Benghazi by redirecting the spotlight away from himself, Hillary, Rice, etc., and onto Kerry. Will Congress let him get away with burying Benghazi? Probably.
Never met a commie traitor he didn’t like.
Ha, I forgot about those!
“Great . . . two national traitors in a row in a very sensitive position. I feel so sorry for this country and what its turned in to”.
My sentiments as well. John Effing Kerry, who by the way served in Vietnam, shouldn’t be dog catcher, much less a Senator.
Yet again, a member of the elite oligarchy has been regurgitated back into our lives. This is the best our country has to offer?
We are truly in trouble.
A VC hero!
