    French, it is said, is the language of love. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry flaunted his fluency in the language on Saturday to deliver something of a love letter to France, one of the few world powers that seems likely to join the United States in any military action against Syria. Following the British parliament's August 29 vote to reject any British use of force against Syria, which the United States accuses of gassing its own people with sarin, France has made no secret of its desire to play Washington's supporting partner.

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama on Friday nominated Sen. John Kerry as his next secretary of state, elevating the longtime lawmaker and foreign policy expert to the top diplomatic job he had coveted. "He is not going to need a lot of on-the-job training," Obama said, standing alongside Kerry at the White House. "Few individuals know as many presidents and prime ministers or grasp our policies as firmly as John Kerry."

    CHARLOTTE - Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman John Kerry (D-MA) will lacerate Mitt Romney on foreign policy in a major speech tonight at the Democratic National Convention. "In this campaign, we have a fundamental choice," Kerry will say, according to speech excerpts provided to The Cable. "Will we protect our country and our allies, advance our interests and ideals, do battle where we must, and make peace where we can? Or will we entrust our place in the world to someone who just hasn't learned the lessons of the last decade?"

    Sen. John Kerry has the perfect audition piece for the secretary of state job he appears to covet — the long-stalled Law of the Sea treaty. He’s come armed with a throng of industry backers and pleas from the country’s top officials. But a cadre of conservatives remains determined to sink it.

    RUSH: It is apparent, ladies and gentlemen, that General John "Swifty" Kerry has taken over Obama foreign policy. You people who thought you were voting for Obama to change foreign policy were wrong. You know, I still can't get over that last sound bite. President Obama, there aren't Bush troops, and there aren't Obama troops. Those are American soldiers, and you've abandoned them, while claiming to these naval people in Jacksonville yesterday you never -- he's embarrassing. Worse than that, it's dangerous. We got John "Swifty" Kerry, who served in Vietnam, by the way, yesterday afternoon at the Council on...

    11/09/2007 Kerry Spokesman Sets Limbaugh Straight on Swiftboat Smears WASHINGTON D.C. – Kerry spokesman David Wade issued the following statement today in response to Rush Limbaugh, who said on his radio show that Kerry’s Swift Boat attackers in 2004, “were right on the money and nobody has disproven anything they claimed in any of their ads, statements, written commentaries, or anything of the sort.” “At first I thought, that’s not Rush, that’s just the OxyContin talking. Nonetheless, this is a despicable but unsurprising new lie from a man whose closest brush with combat came when customs officials tried to take...

    Democrats stampeded over each other yesterday to disassociate themselves from John Kerry, their presidential candidate two years ago, who has handed Republicans an election lifeline with remarks implying US troops in Iraq are there because they are stupid.Senator Kerry, speaking to a group of students in California on Monday, said: “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. If you don’t, you get stuck in Iraq.” A video of his speech was placed swiftly on the internet and then...

    WASHINGTON, Nov. 1, 2006 — Karl Rove, President Bush's top advisor, talked to ABC News' Ann Compton about the remarks Sen. John Kerry says were a botched joke about the president, and about Bush's future. Here is a transcript of the conversation: COMPTON: Senator John Kerry has made a statement about Iraq. Do you take him at his word that he was talking about the president and not the troops? ROVE: I take him at his word when he insulted America's fighting forces. This is a habit that he's had over the years. He did it when he came back...
  • Ron Reagan, Jr.: Bush-Hater?

    Republicans were dismayed to hear Ron Reagan, Jr., deliver what sounded like a rebuke to President Bush during a final tribute before his father was buried on Friday. Referring to his dad as "a deeply, unabashedly religious man," the Reagan son added, "But he never made the mistake the fatal mistake of so many politicians - wearing his faith on his sleeve to gain political advantage. . . " "He accepted [his faith] as a responsibility, not a mandate," noted the presidential son. "And there is a profound difference." Presidential historian Douglas Brinkley said there was no doubt the comments...

    Tell John Kerry: If You Want To Campaign Full Time, RESIGN From The Senate!This has the making of a scandal written all over it.  John Kerry was absent, to campaign, 64% of the time last session.  This session, he has been absent nearly 100% of the time!  Bob Dole had the tact, when he started campaigning full time, to resign.  Not only did Dole resign from the Senate, but he also gave up the coveted position of Majority Leader.  Kerry doesn't even hold a leadership position.  Note: If Kerry resigns, the Governor of MA gets to appoint a temporary replacement. ...

    On an April night in Washington 33 years ago, a tall, slender man in navy combat fatigues tapped me on the shoulder. I was sitting in a large army tent pitched on the Mall, in the company of a couple of dozen Vietnam vets, one of whom—a bearded, wiry little guy with a terrific sense of humor and an inexhaustible supply of mescaline—was temporarily using my other shoulder as a resting place for the stump that had been his left leg. He’d just asked how come I was wearing a South Vietnamese officer’s jacket with the word "TIME" embroidered over...

    Kerry does not like off shore companies: Oh Really? Just came across a bit of information regarding Kerry and his claim of the Bush administration sending jobs abroad.

    ST-BRIAC-SUR-MER, France, Feb. 23 (UPI) -- John Forbes Kerry is not running for president here, but if he were, he would clinch the town's vote. Call it partly anti-Bush backlash after months of Iraq-related mudslinging across the Atlantic, but it cannot hurt that the Massachusetts Democrat summered as a child in this picturesque village, hugging Brittany's rocky shores. Or that Kerry's cousin happens to be mayor of St. Briac. "I know my cousin, and I know he has a clear view of the rest of the world," said 58-year-old Brice Lalonde. "And sometimes the rest of the world feels a...

    This letter from a reader sounds awfully consistent with the "beignets" story I posted last week: Dear Jonah Goldberg, let me share what a friend of mine, a college professor originally from Massachusetts and with liberal point of views, told 1 year ago about his so far only encounter with John Kerry. My friend was standing in line at Barnes & Noble, when John Kerry approached the sales clerk, demanding to have his purchase processed immediately. The clerk was not inclined towards granting Kerry that favor, whereupon Kerry asked him: "Don't you know who I am?" The clerk had an...

    JFK (II): WAR HERO OR FAKE WARRIOR? Henry Mark Holzer Senator John Forbes Kerry, Navy veteran and candidate for the democrat party nomination for President of the United States, has for years played the “war hero” card. As the story goes, for his service in wartime Vietnam Kerry was awarded a Silver Star, a Bronze Star and three Purple Hearts. However, for all those years, and especially now, questions have been raised and doubts have surfaced about the legitimacy of some of those awards. Few people know the truth, preeminently Senator Kerry—but he’s not talking. This is not to...
