Skip to comments.Obama Should Fire John Kerry
Posted on 09/11/2013 10:25:04 AM PDT by Hoodat
Once, when I was a White House reporter for a mainstream news organization, my editor ran a story on the front page. Mind you, we only put two stories on the front page, so it was a big deal.
As I remember, it was a first-rate piece that presented some really important information. It deserved to be on the front page. It so deserved to be on the front page that, in fact, it had been there a couple of weeks before.
Thats right, the editor ran the same story twice, in the same place. He deserved to be fired. It was only because the chief editor of the publication was a magnanimous guy that he wasnt.
My point is, there there are some mistakes, in the jobs we hold, that you just cant make. It almost doesnt matter what else you have done. If you sailed the QE II around the world 20 times and then on the 21st you ram it into Gibraltar, youre not going to be captaining the QE II again. You can go rent sailboats in the Bahamas.
John Kerrys error Monday in London was of the type that I cannot remember from a U.S. Secretary of State in my lifetime. With a few careless words and careless is exactly the antithesis of what a diplomat must be Kerry completely screwed up the presidents policy, a policy that is a matter of war and peace. President Obama should fire him.
By suggesting off the cuff in answer to a question at a news conference . . .

To borrow a phrase, “what difference does it make?!”
Would Senators Patricia Bin Murray or Bob Casey, Jr. even take the job if offered?
“Obama Should Fire John Kerry”
Better yet, Obama should resign!
You left off "Out of a Cannon".
Fire the entire administration including obama and everyone hired under him or appointed by him.
Why not Anthony Weiner, he’s available.
Well Duuuugh... Obama has gone to a lot of trouble to put every Barney Fife mime, shemotzle, and no goodnick in power everywhere in the Executive Branch of Federal Givernment and YOU WANT him to start cleaning things UP NOW!!>???..
What are you a comedian?..
Hell, Kerry should quit. He followed orders and went out and made a vigorous defense of his boss’ hal-fast policies. Not his fault that said boss immediately began flip-flopping once he’d crawled out on the limb.
Replace him with Susan Rice...at least she knows how to stay “on lie.”
Obama should replace Kerry with Rep. Hank Johnson.
He gots international credentials, starting wif Guam capsizing.
Perfect for the black centric Obama’s all star team.
Soon as I heard it, I knew it was a way for the world to step back from the brink. I wonder if Kerry did it on purpose?
The Moron can't fire Lurch ... cause that would break up a matched set!
They deserve each other - two incompetent traitors.
If Kerry had any manhood at all he would have resigned August 30 when Obama pulled the rug out from him and left him dangling in the wind over the issue of attacking Syria.
After sending Kerry out to convince Americans and the world that he (Obama) had the right to take unilateral military action against Syria, Obama decided to throw the hot potato to congress, making Kerry look like even more of an ass than usual.
I understand that kerry follows orders from his master but based on what I see on daily basis this men is extremely arrogant.
I disagree. In all seriousness, this is high humor for me. This amateur administration has gone from being dangerous, to being embarassing to just plain funny.
Nero fiddled while Rome burned. I’m laughing while the US burns. Sure, it’s sad and hopeless - and a lot of people are going to get hurt - bus sometimes you just gotta laugh at the absurdity of the whole thing Starting with who the Obama base actually is and then just going from there.
If it happened a thousand years ago, we’d all be laughing hysterically since it wouldn’t have the sting these events have while being endured. I try to see it from that perspective. One could call it denile. I prefer to see it as my embracing the Serenity prayer:
God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.
If you are falling without a chute from an airplane at 10,000 feet, you might as well enjoy the view on your way down.
The firing is purposed for his completely idiotic and apparently off hand remark in London on Saturday. Kerry has been a poseur so long he doesn’t even realize it. He takes himself seriously. This really was a driving the Titanic into the iceberg moment. He took a bad situation worse, and just about bound the president hand and foot in the matter of Syria. Actually, Putin may be coming to Obama’s aid domestically, while he gets laughed and booed out of the Middle East.
Wasn’t he in Vietnam or something? :)
Don’t fire Secretary of Statements John “Pinprick” Kerry!
He was just starting to “Ketchup” to the great work left undone by the previous Secretary of Statements, Mrs. Bill “Zipper-Boy” Clinton.
“May the circle be unbroken, by and by -—” [or is it bye and bye?]
Why? He’s just as incompetent, stupid, anti-american, destructive, bumbling and tyrannical as everyone else in this administration. He’ a perfect fit!
John Kerry is perfect for the job. He has been wanting to see the decline of the US for his entire adult life. He has even gone as far as to meet with the enemies of the country in a time of war and work to there benefit on US soil.
This job of handling Obama’s strategy of transforming the US from leader of the free world to getting it from behind by the commies is well served by John Kerry.
I would much prefer that each of them fire the other...
This is what happens when you fill your cabinet with ideologues. They are incompetent at the least and quite dangerous.
“If Kerry gets canned, I suspect we would see someone like Hank Johnson or Barbara Lee take his place.”
But then we would have an “investigation” of whether or not Guam was going to capsize if we added any military personnel there! As for Barbara Lee, at least it would get her out of our neighborhood, because she definitely “doesn’t speak for me.”
Fired? For what? He did exactly as he was supposed to.
I have no respect for someone like John Kerry who is so vain that he at one point he turns himself orange in color and who has recently messed up his face with botox and goodness knows what. Have you seen his face? His eyes are not even, well, EVEN. The guy is really creeping me out. BOO!
You mean, like in a duel? I'd pay a lot to see that!
He looks horrible. I don’t know what he had done to his eyes, but one is much smaller than the other, and both are drooping badly.
Kerry is too stoopid to realize he's too stoopid even for this clown car administration
I think she may be a dyke. Her body language is very masculine.
That would certainly figure. I’ve gone all in on a couple gals in my lifetime, only to find out much later and to my great dismay that they were both LGBT aficionados -
Fie the 96 Senators that voted to approve of John Kerry for Secretary of State.
Every stinking one of them. Not one of them deserves to sit in the Senate.
I would prefer that Kerry and Obama both be humiliated by Congress impeaching Kerry against Obama’s wishes.
Amen to that! You are absolutely positively correct.
In sKerry's case the analogy should be; he's rammed the QE II into Gibraltar 20 times. What do you think he will do on his 21st voyage?
0bungles knew what he was getting when he hired Hanoi John.
He can’t fire him for being stupid after he has embraced the stupidity.
What could possibly go wrong?
America should ‘fire’ them BOTH!
HArdly anyone dies while falling anyway.
It’s the sudden stop at the end.
You SURELY meant BIG!
Who VOTES for these people?
I live in Maryland and I can assure you I voted for neither Cardin, Mikulski, or for Steny Hoyer.
They are owned and occupied by Obama.
(Just a touch of sarcasm)...
I know JF Kerry is the right man for the Obama administration.
Obama’s agenda toward America was very clear even before he was elected president the first time.
Kerry and all the others Obama surrounds himself with whom he handpicked; are left of left — just like Obama.
Oh, really? How can you tell?
More to the point, how can you tell it's not deliberate? Rush was eloquent the other day in bragging about how he'd finally found an ally for his (and my) cynical view of Barky's efforts in New York intellectual Norman Podhoretz. Never mind that liberals hate Podhoretz like they hated Dick Cheney -- Podhoretz brings a heavyweight mind to Rush's side of the round table.
Jean Francois doesn’t look human, he looks like a wax mannequin from Madame Tussaud’s.
He’s had work done; just look at the chin.
I think it was an accident, just making an offhand remark when he as answering the question....never dreamed Syria would take him up on the offer. This Administration doesn’t seem to realize you have to be careful when you say things....like the Red Line for example....Biden is another example.
Say what you mean and mean what you say. They all act like a couple of incompetent college kids that know it all.
