Kerry is a blithering idiot, which is a great surprise to the liberals.

Kerry is dumb as a rock and likely doesn’t even have a clue a Muzlim caliphate is in the making by our beloved dictator. Misspellings are always purposeful.

Been tried a few times. Didn't work then. Won't work now.

I bet he will toss in a few war medals (you know, he did serve in Vietnam) to sweeten the deal.....

Deliver? HAH!
Libs never have to deliver anything, their only plan is to spend the next decade blaming others, promising more and most of all spend even more of your money.

Well, John-john is certainly no stranger to making an ass of himself over foreign policy. His entire political career started that way. This isn’t one of his better efforts, though - there are no U.S. troops under fire for him to betray. Yet.

Kerry, a 69-year-old Vietnam veteran, is giving himself completely to a job that in many ways is the climax of his political career and the realization of a lifelong dream after years as chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Now he wants to tackle head-on the world’s thorniest foreign policy conundrums.

Trying to solve all the world's problems by surrendering.

John Kerry could not command a toy boat in a bathtub. Neither could his “superior”.

Don’t know if “superior” is the proper word.

Where else can John Kerry go these days without being humiliated except Israel? So why not dust off the hopeless Israel-Palestinian peace talks again?

Vladimir Putin made John Kerry wait three hours before meeting with him. Groups throughout the world have been holding angry protests attacking Obama as a war criminal, making his Secretary of State persona non grata virtually everywhere.

Only Bibi Netanyahu has enough compassion to take our pathetic Secretary of State in and allow him to pretend he’s actually doing something — even though the Obama administration has been the most anti-Israel administration in history, proven by the fact that Obama’s IRS went out of its way to target Jewish pro-Israel groups along with the Tea Partiers.

They set up a government type office in Qatar - early 2012. The Afghan president, USA, Qatar, and the Taliban were to peace-talk meet in the same building which was officially opened on June 18th 2013...within a few days of the meeting Kerry states he’ll meet directly with the Taliban...afghan president states he’s now out...the whole thing collapses.

Is actual competence even a basic requirement for Obama’s appointees?

Trying to “rein in” Kerry. This just proves, again...Obama has another member of his Administration over whom he has had no control.

Kerry and Biden must be in competition to see who can be the most inane.

Now that is a race I wouldn't want to handicap. It's just too close to call.
