John Kerry quietly suggests Sen. Ron Johnson do his damn job already

John Kerry quietly suggests Sen. Ron Johnson do his damn job already

by Hunter

Republican Sen. Ron Johnson had a bit of a tough day yesterday. His attacks on Sec. Clinton did not go well (if there is one person you ought to think twice about trying to bully in a hearing, it would possibly be the ex-senator and former first lady most intimately familiar with the last 20 years of asinine Republican scandal-trawling), which resulted in a wounded Johnson sniffling that Clinton dodged his questions by being "emotional."

Today isn't shaping up much better for Johnson, who this morning was gets quietly chastised by secretary of state nominee John Kerry for missing the damn Senate briefing on Benghazi where Johnson could have gotten some clarification on the things Johnson has decided are, probably, outrages:

Kerry: I think it was very clear… were you at the briefing with the tapes?

Johnson: No.

Kerry: Well, there was a briefing with tapes, which we all saw—those of us who went to it—uh, which made it crystal clear. We sat for several hours with our intel folks, who described to us precisely what we were seeing. We saw all of the events unfold. We had a very complete and detailed description.

This must be the same Benghazi briefing that Sen. McCain also missed, back when McCain was being one of the most prominent senators assuring us that there was probably something fishy with this whole Benghazi thing. The reason McCain missed the briefing, you will recall, was that he was holding a press conference angrily demanding the senate be given briefings like that. This may have something to do with why McCain grumpily defended Johnson today, or not.

2. Hillary is one tough girl and I love her for it

JK on the other hand is One Bad Ass from the word go and won't pander to these clowns now or in the future as neither did Sec. Clinton. President Obama gets it, that you have to have strong people in this position. unlike SoS kindasleezie who bedded them as a strategy.

3. Good for Kerry exposing Sen Ron

Johnson. It's got to be so frustrating for intelligent people to deal with brainwashed idiots in Congress.

When I read this I immediately thought of McCain hogging cameras while the briefings were going on. He thought it more important to whine about Benghazi than actually attend said briefings to find out what was going on.

Thanks Pro Sense

5. Haha! "Were you at the briefing?" "…no"

The more these guys open their mouths, the more foolish they look.

What was it Mark Twain said? "Better to keep your mouth shut and let people think you're a fool, than to open it and remove all doubt."

7. It must be a Republican rule: you must vote for someone dumber and lazier than you.

8. I liked the "quietly" in the title, because that was exactly

what it was. No raised voice, no anger, just the quiet point that he could have known the answers if he attended the briefing.

11. Yes, and it wasn't just

Johnson who was schooled.

I loved Kerry's response to Rubio's simplistic and seemingly caffeine-induced rant. Seriously, he sounded like a windup toy.

10. LOL. Score one for Kerry. Wonder why Hillary didn't say that? Oh...it was a briefing for

the legislators, not Sec of State, maybe? Why wouldn't she have access to that same intel?
