I'm still trying to decide how I feel about Kerry's new botox look. On the one hand, it does kind of smooth out a lot of the wrinkles. But on the other hand, it takes away the old joke of "A horse walks into a bar. The bartender asks 'Why the long face?' ". I'm still trying to decide. Just sayin'...........

Seems to me that the Commander-In-Chief pulled the rug right out from under that "Powerful Speaker." This is looking more like Keystone Cops as time goes on. Just sayin'.........

The bottom line is that Obuma has made the U.S. the "Paper Tiger" of the world. He has no domestic policy, no foreign policy and no way to get out of his big mouthed "red line" statement. Bin Laden was right, this is the beginning of "The Rise and Fall of the American Empire". - Forget Rome.
Yes, a powerful speaker except for the fact that he is a liar as per below:
"I remember Christmas of 1968 sitting on a gunboat in Cambodia. I remember what it was like to be shot at by Vietnamese and Khmer Rouge and Cambodians, and have the president of the United States telling the American people that I was not there; the troops were not in Cambodia. I have that memory which is seared -- seared -- in me." John Kerry, March 27th 1986, on the U.S. Senate floor.
As part of the supporting documentation given to station managers for our television ad, "Any Questions?" we provided this regarding John Kerry's "Christmas in Cambodia":
The story is a total preposterous fabrication by Kerry. Exhibit 8 is an affidavit by the Commander of the Swift boats in Vietnam, Admiral Roy Hoffmann, stating that Kerry's claim to be in Cambodia for Christmas Eve and Christmas of 1968 is a total lie. If necessary, similar affidavits are available from the entire chain of command. In reality, Kerry was at Sa Dec -- easily locatable on any map more than fifty miles from Cambodia. Kerry himself inadvertently admits that he was in Sa Dec for Christmas Eve and Christmas and not in Cambodia, as he had stated for so many years on the Senate Floor, in the newspapers, and elsewhere. Exhibit 27, Tour, pp. 213-219. Sa Dec is hardly "close" to the Cambodian border. In reality, far from being ordered secretly to Cambodia, Kerry spent a pleasant night at Sa Dec with "visions of sugar plums" dancing in his head. Exhibit 27, p. 219. At Sa Dec where the Swift boat patrol area ended, there were many miles of other boats (PBR's) leading to the Cambodian border. There were also gunboats on the border to prevent any crossing. If Kerry tried to get through, he would have been arrested. Obviously, Kerry has hardly been honest about his service in Vietnam.
John Kerry was never shot at by Khmer Rouge and Cambodians. He never took CIA operatives into Cambodia to search for enemy enclaves. In fact, John Kerry's boat never came within 50 miles of Cambodia.

It is certain that by this time, the United States had long been making secret incursions across the border. This is from Page 24 of William Shawcross' 1979 book, Sideshow: Kissinger, Nixon, and the Destruction of Cambodia:
Since May 1967, when the U.S. Military Command in Saigon became concerned at the way the North Vietnamese and Viet Cong were evading American "search and destroy" and air attacks in Vietnam by making more use of bases in Laos and Cambodia, the U.S. Special Forces had been running special, highly classified missions into the two countries. Their code name was Daniel Boone.
The Daniel Boone teams entered Cambodia all along its 500-mile frontier with South Vietnam from the lonely, craggy, impenetrable mountain forests in the north, down to the well-populated and thickly reeded waterways along the Mekong River. [Italics added.]
We know that Kerry's boat and two others were in those reeds on Christmas Eve '68.
The Cambodian special forces' incursions—which were conducted without the knowledge, much less approval, of Congress—were escalating around that time. Just over a month later, on Feb. 9, 1969, Gen. Creighton Abrams, commander of U.S. forces in Vietnam, requested a B-52 bombing attack on a Communist camp inside Cambodia. (Richard Nixon, the new president, approved the plan on March 17; the first strikes of Operation Breakfast—the secret bombing of Cambodia—started the next day.) Shawcross writes that special forces were always sent across the border to survey the area for targets just before an air operation.
Did Kerry cross the border or just go up to it? We may never know for sure. Not much paperwork exists for covert operations (officially, U.S. forces weren't in Cambodia). Nor is it likely that a canny Swift-boat skipper (and Kerry was nothing if not canny) would jot down thoughts about such covert operations in a diary on a boat that might be captured by the enemy.
You are an ENORMOUSLY bigger idiot than I ever gave you credit for. John Kerry is a disgusting BUFFOON and a disgrace representing this great nation in ANY capacity, let alone as the Secretary of State. This is an individual who lied about his time served in Vietnam to try and make himself look like a hero. He was a coward as proven by the men who served with him. Then he came home and supposedly threw his medals over the White House wall as a protest to the Vietnam War. What he actually threw were NOT his medals. His are proudly displayed at one of his many homes. Then he testified in front of Congress calling his fellow soldiers Barbarians in the likeness of Ghengis Khan. Then he TOTALLY berated George Bush for doing exactly what he is proposing we do today (in this POWERFUL SPEECH). He bought a multi-million dollar yacht which he keeps in Rhode Island to avoid the taxes he would have to pay Massachusetts for bringing it home. All the while berating other wealthy people as well as American Corporations for not paying their fair share. Come to think of it, braf, I'm not surprised at all that you look up to this amoral, dishonest disgusting individual. After all, birds of a feather..........

Geee and how did Mitt keep his 2 sons out of the gulf war. Bunch of idiots. Always wanting to cut and throw stones at others but can't seem to grasp all the facts. The world and press was praising Kerry yet ghondo and phil want to lead the buffoon bregrade. Take a look in the mirror and wonder to yourself am I really correct in berating someone else when it is you who has NO fing clue.
I dislike and disagree with John Kerry on all political positions. But I can't call him a coward or traitor. Also he's no hero (they are all dead), Kerry played the system to his advantage to leave early. But he put his life on the line. I doubt seriously Ghondula served in any fashion.
