Secretary of State John Kerry enjoys quiet time on his yacht [Title shortened]

And why not? After all, it’s a very quiet and peaceful day on the international front.

Just be grateful Kerry didn’t show off an expensive water toy, such as a jet ski.

“Since his plane touched down in Washington at 4 am, Secretary Kerry was working all day and on the phone dealing with the crisis in Egypt,” Psaki said in a statement.

Kerry was absent from a White House photo showing President Obama meeting with members of his national security team to discuss the situation in Egypt, but Psaki said he had dialed in on a secure phone line for that meeting.

“He participated in the White House meeting with the President by secure phone and was and is in non-stop contact with foreign leaders, and his senior team in Washington and Cairo.”

So, DOS tell reporters to not believe their lying eyes, BUT...

Secretary of State John Kerry's motorcade gets stuck in #Nantucket rotary traffic.

Note the parsed language in the DOS statement, "Kerry touched down in washington," but he "dialed it in."

The pompous sack of excrement is on vacation today while Egypt is getting ready to blow!

You mean the yacht he kept moored across the bay in another state for years so he wouldn’t have to pay MA property tax on it? That John Kerry?

Better Lurch is on vacation, anyhow. He’d only make things worse if he got involved.

A CBS News producer tweeted a photo of Kerry’s yacht, Isabel, on Wednesday afternoon and said a colleague saw Kerry boarding it at the Nantucket Boat Basin.

She shouted “Morsi,” but got no response from the secretary of state.

What difference does it make?!

It’s all ‘part’ of the plan.

Mind you, I have no idea what the plan is, but I am sure that there is one.

Something like that, only it was in Cambodia, or Laos, or somewhere else we weren’t officially supposed to be, and I think he got a Purple Heart, too.

Ahhh, the good life! I am sure he does empathize with all the folks in the sweltering Middle East as he sips his martinis and is about to dig into some deep fried French fries.

As he sits leisurely on the yacht...

Pass the Heinz ketchup will ya hon?

Ooops, phone call - looks like it is from the Generals in Egypt.

Yes, yes General Asissi, what? You say the coup is done? OK, well of course you know that this means the President will have to review the billion or so funding we give you guys, what's What? You say the Muslim Brotherhood is kaput? OK, Yes, I'll pass the sad news along to my boss. He is not going to be happy to say the least...Ok Salam Elekum General...

Hon? Cain you reheat these French fries, they've gotten cold, thanks dear...

I’ve heard he has a great plan for expressing Obama’s displeasure with the way the Russians are acting in regards to Snowden.

He’s going to throw his medals over the Kremlin Wall.

You know, I saw a film, news report or something of him back during his ‘Vietnam’ days where he was testifying or blathering about something and he was in a pair of those green fatigues all the service wore then (not the tropicals but the regular ones). He had his ‘medals’ on them as well as his ribbons......hilarious.

Meanwhile, he still hasn’t released his SF171 which would likely show that his original discharge was less than honorable and later upgraded to honorable under Carter’s Amnesty.

I was wondering if his missis was a seafaring lass. If Kerry were a Kennedy, he’d arrange some rendezvous on his party boat.

Give the man a break...destroying all the credibility of the United States is hard work...not to mention holding up that bloated ego on such narrow shoulders day after day after day and with no spine to speak of! That is quite a spectacular feat. He needs his rest cause Obama is not done destroying the US yet. Lots of work ahead.

Of course. The media has no choice but to hide everything when it comes to this regime. After all, they are complicit in all its failings and is an indictment of their unwillingness to actually do "news".

Very good point. And this is another key thing we need to think about from a very strategic point of view. It has long infuriated me that Conservatives as well as Republicans in general tend to “let-bygones-be-bygones” attitude towards a defeated enemy — in this case Kerry.

Yet that attitude is seldom shared on the Democrat side, and it is with ongoing and past that we learn the lesson that they will go after us, even in defeat.

If we have any hope of surviving, we need to ruthlessly pursue the enemy, even after electoral defeat. Most specifically, kick them while they are down, using every tool we can bring go bear.

Problems with the planet, that's another DemocRAT, Gore...

John was side by side with “Hanoi Jane” Fonda at protests and hearings. Oh, that was a long time ago and many many bottles of Heinz ketchup ago. I think they were the main supplier of condiments and sauces to Saigon when Johnny boy was there...

You got that right. Kerry has already proved himself to be a worse SOS than Madeline Not-bright. He will go down as the worst Secretary of State in US history.

I’m quite certain it involves bringing elective democracy to the Middle East with Islamists as their leaders. You know, purple fingers and all that goes with it including positive statements from our State Department on the victories as they pile up. Yeah, that’s it...

Kerry is kissing terrorist butt like he did Communist butt when he protested the war in Viet Nam.. A Ho Chi Minh City museum that honors Vietnam war protesters features a photograph of Sen. John Kerry being greeted by the general secretary of the Communist Party, Comrade Do Muoi. A snapshot of the display in the Vietnamese Communist War Remnants Museum – formerly known as the "War Crimes Museum" – was acquired over the weekend by Jeffrey M. Epstein of Vietnam Vets for the Truth, a group opposing Kerry's campaign for the presidency. http://www.tonyrogers.com/humor/john_kerry_memorial.htm
