Must have been because they know what most people don’t - that John Kerry was in... Vietnam.

A lot of Repubicans voted for him. Which proves again that the major difference between a Republican politician and a Democrat politician is in the spelling.

That is just pitiful. 94 Senators ratified a traitor for SecState?
Another reason I’m not voting for Isakson or Chambliss ever again.

Rand has no personal feeling about the Nam.

With the NVA in charge of the State Department it should be entertaining if nothing else.

Bet the first thing Kerry does is turn over State's lists of names of Vietnamese informants to Hanoi so that if they missed anyone they can hunt them down and kill them ~ and their families.

This man has no moral fiber of any kind ~ total sociopath ~ guess he can see eye to eye with Obamugabe.

Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.) and Texas Sens. Ted Cruz (R) and John Cornyn (R) casting the only “no” votes.

A clean sweep for the Blessed state of Texas!

It wasn’t the Viet Nam that bothers me - it was meeting with the communists in Paris, while we were still at war, and he was still in the reserves.

Someone please explain to me how the GOP is worth anything.

IMO the GOP is just the right wing of the political ruling class. The GOP has no principles. The GOP just guards the flank of the overt communists as they take the USA.

Never again.

My feeling about Cornyn - he knew Carey would be elected and his no vote provides cover for him. He’s up for election in 2014.

Kerry was not only a traitor, he committed a felony by meeting with the NVA negotiators as a private citizen in Paris during the war in 1971 (collaboration).He lied about his length of service and his pretend wound. This man is just in a club of elites. But he can’t be any worse at secretary of state than that bumbling hillary. She utterly failed.

The State Department, like the White House, will now be run by someone who hates America more than he loves it, and loves the enemy more than America. Both are perfect for each other. Probably sleep together to make further plans to destroy the Republic as fast as they can.

Coburn must have sipped from the same poisonous well as did Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee, the panel’s top Republican. He called Kerry “a realist” who will deal with unrest in Egypt, civil war in Syria, the threat of al-Qaida-linked groups in Africa and Iran’s pursuit of nuclear weapons.

Not Inhofe. He just needed something to offset all the caving he’s been doing. Anytime there’s an overwhelming majority in the senate for some liberal cause, he casts a dissenting vote. When it’s close, and his dissent would help us, he votes with the majority and tries to tell us that it was the conservative thing to do.

Another Communist Comrade in the Administration!
At least he will be well received by our Communist friends
and will make inroads for the new Nation to join the Communist Bloc! Nikita Khrushchev must be smiling from Hell as America digs it’s own grave and Russia will not have to bury us. We have our own shovels. A sad day indeed!
