Who’s Dumber: Obama or Kerry?


In the media, Kerry is getting much of the blame for his Assad WMD quip. He’s the one being held responsible by the media for letting Assad getting away by saying something. (And then the next minute the media begins unrolling the revisionist history and claiming that the proposal long predated the Kerry comment.)

But while Kerry’s flip comment was foolish. As a senator, Kerry might have gotten away with saying something like that, but as Secretary of State you have to be more careful, contextually it was clear that he wasn’t making an actual offer. When the Russians tried to take him up on it, a State Department spokesman shot down the idea… likely at Kerry’s order.

Kerry may have said something dumb, but he knew better than to let the Russians trap him in it.

Obama however was much dumber than Kerry. And Obama insisted that Kerry and the country’s diplomatic efforts be oriented toward dealing with the Russian offer.

Kerry’s hands were then tied and he discovered that, like Hillary Clinton, he was stuck working for a genuinely clueless idiot. Kerry has a long career of international stupidity, but even he knew better.

Obama didn’t.

Kerry who had been in the Senate during the Iraq War had understood the disastrous implications of the Russian offer. Obama who had spent that time giving speeches and running for office, did not. And probably still doesn’t.

It’s a sad day when a man who was taken by the Viet Cong and the Sandinistas still proves to be less of a soft touch than Obama.

    Glad to see you FPMers FINALLY admit (realize?) that Obama is not a political genius or even a mediocrity. Five years late is better than never, I guess.

    Yes, Obama is stupid and incompetent. So is 1/3 of the population, which is one of the reasons he gets away with it. That, and his media protection and promotion.

    You can’t ridicule this destructive moron enough. Please keep doing it.

      “FINALLY admit (realize?)”………..uhmmm…what?
      “Please keep doing it”. ………uhh…yah.
      Glad you showed up to FPM zigzog…better late than never, I guess. You won’t be disappointed.

    • Gee

      I do not believe that the President is stupid at all. He is doing what he wants and getting away with it. Just because he is destroying America – doesn’t make him stupid if that is his goal (which I believe it is)

    I’ve been catching up on some old Laurel and Hardy videos recently, and I’ve been asking myself the same question recently, “Who’s dumber?” Is it Stan, the perpetual idiot, or is it Ollie the pompous goon who thinks that he’s smart, but still acts like a buffoon?
    A better heading for your post, Daniel, would have been:

    Obama and Kerry: Which one is Laurel, and which one is Hardy?

    • BS77

      Please do not call Oliver Hardy a “pompous goon”. Laurel and Hardy are iconic figures in the history of comedy….I resent your unintelligent and baseless remark. Laurel and Hardy….can’t touch this.

        I ,meant their on-screen personas, you fool.

    Yet how often do we hear how well he is implementing the Alinsky approach?

    Perhaps it’s a bit of both, although I lean toward incompetence. Then again, are there ANY competent leaders in the present day on either side?

    Seems the sides do not understand that their view is not the only view of things.

    There is little doubt, to me, that Obama’s elitist background puts him out of touch with much of human nature, except as a matter of theory.

    Putin is a genius for jumping on Kerry’s off hand comment to make a disingenuous offer (everyone assumes Kerry’s comment was offhand and that Putin knew this). Obama on the other hand is an imbecile for accepting or appearing to accept the offer from Putin and that he did not know it was disingenuous. More likely it is a game of lies and deceit on both sides. The US and Russia and others have been ginning up the islamists with the intent of having them do their dirty work. The problem is that the islamists are not so easy to control being lunatics and all. Maybe they should be arranging to clean up the mess a bit by getting Obama’s Sunni lunatics and Putin’s Shia lunatics to off each other. The problem is that neither Kerry nor Obama really have much on their minds except furthering their own careers.

    Who is dumber? That’s a one million dollars question.

    Kerry by a longshot: the chances that this guy has any brains at all are unbelievably small.
