Bye, Bye Susan Rice, Hello John Kerry

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. He is completing a book on the international challenges America faces in the 21st century.


I guess it’s a victory? Of sorts. I suspect it’s more of a victory for Hillary Clinton who managed to pay back Rice for her betrayal during the 2008 primaries.

But Susan Rice has officially withdrawn, citing the usual reason, she doesn’t want to be a distraction, which really means Obama doesn’t want her to be a distraction.

And I’m not sure putting Mr. Viet Cong in as Secretary of State, and he is very likely to be much of a victory either.

But when the cabinet consists of men of integrity and honor like Eric “New Black Panther” Holder and Arne “Fisting Kids” Duncan, suddenly Kerry doesn’t look as bad as he did back in 2004 when we could no more have imagined the present state of affairs than most people in 1913 could have envisioned the world that was coming right at them.

And Obama may still not put Kerry forward even though McCain seems rather eager for it. For one thing, there’s some bad blood there, and for another, he doesn’t want to risk the return of Senator Scott Brown. Obama had no choice but to throw Hillary a bone, but his loyalists are rather tired of the Clintonization of foreign policy and I bet Valerie Jarrett has a few good Marxists she would love to slot in there. And that’s not ruling out Chuck Hagel, who like Dracula to Kerry’s Frankenstein, is always waiting in the wings.

But between this and Hugo Chavez bleeding all over Cuba, the left can’t be feeling all that chipper right now.

    Oh great, Mr. Swift Boat. He won't be much better, if he gets it.

      More to the point, appointing Kerry is like having George, the devil incarnate, Soros at the helm. Not only is he a radical revolutionary, but his wifey – the one who wears the pants in his mansions – is the head of the Tides Foundation, a hydra-like, tentacled slush fund for all projects anti-American!

      Well, this is what happens when the people allow radical revolutionaries to steer the ship of state – off the cliff! http://adinakutnicki.com/2012/10/07/when-authenti

      But it is not as if Hill was much better. After all, her Deputy COS is Huma Abedin – http://adinakutnicki.com/2012/11/07/spotlight-on-

        As the good LORD is my witness, I rather settle for SUSAN RICE one hundred thousand times
        and not for this piece of…work….

          When it comes to actual personalities, I agree with you. It doesn't matter in the end. They just need to go.

  • objectivefactsmatter

    It's just nice to know we can send one or more of them packing once in a while to remind them we're paying attention. They're all losers, so the replacements don't matter much. Just keep shaking them up till we get rid of them completely.

      I am not so sure it was us who accomplished this. I would like to think so, of course. It seems that is was likely a Clintons vs Obama issue. Hilary Clinton is beloved by many (mostly middle aged leftist women) but also, I assure you, she is well hated. I almost want her to run in 2016 as it may be possible to defeat her.
      She is,however, just as much of an Islamist as Obama and is a big anti-Semite too. So, when the Clinton's win a duel with Obama, I can't really be that happy.

        "when the Clinton's win a duel with Obama, I can't really be that happy"

        Any duel occurring between them and their like is a good thing, especially when any bullets find home.

    So, Obama might nominate John "Swift Boat" Kerry, who's married to Teresa Heinz, scionness of the Heinz pickle and katsup and other stuff fortune and a first-class lefty, John who boasts of having bogus war medals, John who testified in Congress wearing hippy anti-war gear from the local Army and Navy Store, John who has a relative who won a construction contract to help rebuild Vietnam (I wonder if he won it on his merits, or had a little help from John?) — this creature might be our next Secretary of State? Surely, you jest. But, I know you're not. It's so in character for tis administration to seriously consider John Kerry for Secretary of State. After all, we had Hillary, and before that, Madeline Albright.

    • Herbster

      Albright, Shrillery and now perhaps Lurch………the Shemp, Moe and Curly of statesmanship. Don't worry about Teresa…..Just give her a bottle – or a case – of Jack Daniels and she'll be out of sight for days. Lurch as Sec/State? Sounds like the punch line of a bad joke. However, John (I cross the aisle) McCain, his butt boy, Graham, the crazy lady from Maine, the Quisling Murkowski, The :Independent" Liegerman and a few other RINO's can be depended on to vote for Lurch. Is this the best we have to offer? How far we have fallen as a nation.

    • Lucifer Dye

      Ken, there's no such word as "scionness," according to Merriam-Webster.

      • objectivefactsmatter

        Definition of SCION

        1: a detached living portion of a plant (as a bud or shoot) joined to a stock in grafting and usually supplying solely aerial parts to a graft
        2 a : descendant, child; especially : a descendant of a wealthy, aristocratic, or influential family
        b : heir 1 <scion of a railroad empire>

        It's obviously a poetic use to indicate gender when grammatically there was no need.

  • Chanameel

    Once he pulled himself out of living in the back of a car…prior to marrying Heinz…..

    what more can I say…

    wow,

    What a …guy.

    John, Why so Long In The Face???????????????

  • sononthe_beach

    He will always be late, because his chin will arrive a half hour before he does.

  • jacob

    NoT A DAMNED THING TO WORRY ABOUT…
    After all, hasn't OBAMA being scouring the bottom of the garbage pail for most of his "collaborators"
    appointments ????

    But I have a suggestion to make to our President (which I swear he won't even spit on, much less
    consider :

    I propose JOHN BOLTON for Secretary of State of the United States of America.
    It is a damned shame the Republican idiots chose ROMNEY against OBAMA….but, thias the way
    history is written….
    May GOD protect America if KERRY is appointed Secretary of State and the Congress Republicans
    go for it……

    • objectivefactsmatter

      "I propose JOHN BOLTON for Secretary of State of the United States of America. "

      That would be the first pleasant surprise in Washington in many years.
