GOPer: World 'Laughing At Us' While 'Kerry's Flying Around And Drinking Merlot'

Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) on Thursday said that the international community does not take Secretary of State John Kerry or the United States seriously.

Rep. Steve Scalise: "John Kerry's flying around and drinking merlot and saying 'let's be friends,' and people are laughing at us." #CPAC2014

Scalise was speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference on a panel discussion about income inequality.

Republicans have been critical of the Obama administration's policy toward Russia since President Vladimir Putin inserted troops into Ukraine.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said Sunday that "we have a weak and indecisive president that invites aggression." Graham also blamed the situation in Ukraine on how President Obama handled Benghazi.

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) also remarked in February that "the naiveté of Barack Obama and John Kerry is stunning."

President Obama can't conduct foreign policy. The Putin love is strong. The level of disrespect being shown is something.

Rallying around the wrong president

2. Odd

It's my perception that the world is laughing at us because of the gop and the long list of ass hats just like Steve Scalise that claim membership. That not only is the rest of the world laughing at us now, but have been since at least 2000.

But hey...I don't watch fox or listen to talk radio, so what do I know...

12. Of course the world is laughing at us we spent untold billions in Afghanistan and Iraq and achieved

dick.

Besides "let's be friends" is a total misrepresentation of what Kerry has been saying to Putin, to Netanyahu just to name a couple of bad actors on the world stage.

And "merlot". Shit, that's so 1998. Kerry would probably be drinking malbec. With his pinky extended no doubt.

19. Well, thanks. I mean,

"You really need to lighten up."

...that's not it. It's really hard to tell these days when Kerry's calls for diplomacy are met with, "hypocrite," and his statement denouncing the invasion of another country is subject to ridicule by some.

Do Republicans want to go to war with Putin or get a room with him?

I can't tell if they love or hate this guy.

22. All of a sudden Kerry's a target for right and left who only wake up to attack.

https://www.bostonglobe.com/opinion/editorials/2014/01/03/john-kerry-tenacious-diplomacy-offers-hope-for-mideast-peace/L35tIZoYp92e8eCwe6dNVO/story.html

John Kerry’s tenacious diplomacy offers hope for Mideast peace


Hillary Clinton traveled to Israel just twice in her four years as secretary of state. Instead, special envoy George Mitchell did most of the hands-on work of trying to restart the Middle East peace process. But near the end of his first year in the post, John Kerry is on his 10th trip to Israel in the most intense initiative in years to resolve a poisonous conflict. The vigor, tenacity, and specificity of his efforts offer a measure of hope after years of little progress.

There is plenty of skepticism about Kerry’s chances for success. Some have called him “Captain Ahab.” Others have called his quest a “fool’s errand.” But he has already achieved some modest success. This summer, he convinced the Arab League to renew its 2002 offer to recognize Israel after the creation of a Palestinian state. Most significantly, he persuaded the league to strip away a previous requirement that Israel allow tens of thousands of Palestinian refugees to return to homes inside Israel. To get talks restarted in August, Kerry pushed for Israel to agree to the phased release of 104 Palestinian prisoners, which the Palestinian Authority had required for the resumption of talks.


Lastly, Kerry is operating with one of the most deft teams ever assembled; in addition to Martin Indyk, the US ambassador to Israel, it includes General John Allen, former commander of NATO forces in Afghanistan, who is in charge of devising ways to protect Israel’s security in any peace deal. Veteran Middle East scholar David Makovsky, an expert in mapping the possibilities of a Palestinian state, recently joined the team.

26. Kerry is doing an excellent job, and

"All of a sudden Kerry's a target for right and left who only wake up to attack."

...these attacks are in part driven by opportunism, some on the left's new found love for Putin (Snowden-based, no doubt) and anti-Obama sentiments.

It's simply bizarre that a call for diplomacy would be met with such ridicule.

24. Obama should send the War Mongers McCain and Graham to Ukraine. Give them

each a gun and let them fight the Russians.

I'm serious, I'm sick of these two! Every Sunday you'll see one or both of them on talk shows spewing their pro war propaganda. Their Obama is weak bullshit is getting close to treasonous!

And this peace-geek is very thankful that President Obama and John Kerry are handling this situation in a calm and diplomatic manner rather than being reckless and stupid as we were with Iraq.
