'In America, you have a right to be stupid, if you want to be... and we tolerate that,' Kerry said to a packed Internet cafe in Berlin.

Kerry stopped in Berlin as part of his nine-country trip abroad - his first trip as secretary of state

He recalled how he learned about the divide in postwar Berlin as a young man living with his American diplomat father

No Mr. Secretary, "we don't have the right to be stupid". America spends more on education than on anything else and the product is really frightening....our teachers are not taught...they are lose cannons whose students can hardly spell, write or know who their present elected are let along any history of their country. Men who lie to Congress and are still elected are poster boys for the deliberately dumbing down of America...NO MR. SECRETARY...your right to assume your country teaches stupidity is truly sad.

If you’re really stupid you get to be Secretary of State.

“you” may have the right to be stupid. Doesn’t mean I SHOULD HAVE TO PAY FOR IT.

I think Americans proved beyond any shadow of doubt they have a right to be stupid and exercised that right in November 2012.

He openly reveals arming Syrian rebel forces (Libyan salvage) as he panders his stupid self to Russian “diplomats”. The same dip$hits that arm Assad. Kerry who served in Viet Nam is well versed in treason

You have a “right to be stupid” but if you try to be smart and successful they will tax the pants off you!

This idiocy can’t last forever. Something is going to give and it won’t be long from now.

Even a traitor can be right every now and them. November the 6th 2012 is a prime example.

Oh, during the confirmation hearings for Sec. State, did Horse Face sign his SF 180 to release his 201 file?

You also have the right to be a treasonous, soulless, uncharasmatic, no-talent, gold–digging, long-faced, wanna-be gigolo who uses a dead man’s money to get plastic surgery at 70 freakin’ years old so you can score drunken community college airheads, John.

Go piss up a rope, you witless, pseudo-intellectual piece of communist trash.

P.S. F*ck you.

The people who voted for this JFK traitor wannabee can certainly be used as proof of American stupidity.

But then: So can the Republican Senators who voted him into this job.

I'll agree kerry is well versed in treason. But I can't agree he served in Viet Nam.

It appears when he talks about the right to be stupid, that he was talking about "clandestine bike rides" into the Soviet sector when he was a teenager.

That story smells, and not of roses. It seems really similar to his Christmas in Cambodia story.

This is rather rich with ironical possibilities. But taking it directly, I’d say Mr. Kerry took full advantage of that right!

I stand corrected. They are dead people voting, they are just not so alive anymore.

John Kerry, Barack Hussein Obama, and countless other politicians in both the Democrat and Republican Parties are demonstrations how stupid American voters are.

We all them "low information voters" in Illinois, and we've called them that for years. Rush Limpbaugh has only recently caught onto the phrase, and unbeknownst to him, he's one of them!

It’s no wonder they consider themselves ‘elite’ and have so much contempt for the American people. They must find much amusement getting away with such lies.

So is Kerry.

Lucky for him Americans have the right to be stupid - or he’d never have had a career in politics. Or anything else.

Liberals who took over the education system have made sure the people are uneducated and uninformed and just plain stupid.

Ex-Sen. john F’ing Kerry is a perfect example of the Peter Principle in action. The most incompetent tool in the drawer gets promoted far beyond his capabilities or abilities. JFK is an Affirmative Action Secretary of State. His boss, Barry Soetoro Obonzo is an Affirmative Action POTUS.

Americans do have the right to be stupid but the federal government doesn’t have the right to force stupidity on children through classroom indoctrination.

Sorry; but education is to cure IGNORANCE - not stupidity.

That CAN'T be fixed!

hmmm..... I wonder who Kerry is talking about? Maybe this will help shed some light...

“You know education, if you make the most of it, you study hard, you do your homework, and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well, and if you don’t you get stuck in Iraq.”
