Kerry Says GOP Campaign Is an Embarrassment

Kerry Says GOP Campaign Is an Embarrassment

SNIP.............


Secretary of State John Kerry warned that the Republican presidential campaign raises awkward questions abroad about the reliability of the United States, Yahoo News reports.

Said Kerry: “They cannot believe it. I think it is fair to say that they’re shocked. They don’t know where it’s taking the United States of America.”

He added: “It upsets people’s sense of equilibrium about our steadiness, about our reliability, and to some degree I must say to you, some of the questions, the way they’re posed to me, it’s clear to me that what’s happening is an embarrassment to our country.”

1. It is

When this election is over, it's going to be met with a really really bad hangover. It doesn't matter who gets elected.

It's like we're all drunk right now.

3. This why, back in the day...

there was an unwritten rule, that said: "Politics stops at the border." Probably followed less than we remember, but since Clinton, and especially since the inauguration of Pres Obama, there have increasing blatant breaches of this policy.

Acts like the Netanyahu address to Congress concurrent to important negotiations with Iran used to be unconscionable. Now, they seem to be de riguer.

Now, with Trump blathering about how he will basically bully the rest of the world to toe the line, there is no wonder why they feel a bit uneasy about the next few years following November's election.

4. Yes GOP attacked Obama foreign policy so not one iota of his presidency

would be left unsabotaged.

5. We need a message to bring over moderates

to our big tent of reason and sanity. Seems like perfect timing for such a productive operation. Only those who are RINOs though. We need not waste our time on the Cruz/Trump low information fanatics.

11. Absolutely!

We have to forget about the Trumpster Dumpsters and the Cruz Creeple. They all remind me of those many years ago when I first went to see Duane Jones and Judith O'Deigh in the original "Night of the Living Dead." The Trumpsters and Cruzers only see things in Black and White and their individual abilities to discuss a topic in depth and logically are in line with the zombies.

This is a wonderful opportunity for the Democratic Party to start trying to pull in those who have been abandoned by the GOP over the last 36 years....those who see the importance of a separation between church and state, those who see the gap between the reality of the USA already having the strongest military in the world and the GOP fantasy that we have faltered and therefore we need to increase military spending. We should be able to draw in everyone who understands that We, the People, pay taxes so that the government, with the backing of We, the People, can take on the concerns of We, the People.

We need to point out that neither Cruz or Trump never seem to say much about fixing the crumbling infrastructure, making the US Education System competitive with the rest of the world, undertaking extensive measures to try to gain a position of leadership in the quest to move from finite dirty energy to infinite clean energy, and using tax dollars to handle the hurdling of obstacles that face the United States and our citizens.

Finally, I think that we should be pushing government as being a Citizens' Union, with taxes being our dues, and the first and only priority being to serve the citizens of the nation.

7. Kerry used one too many words.

The word he should have dropped is "campaign".

But agreed that the GOP is a clusterf..k.

8. Have they forgotten George W. Bush already?

The Republican campaign may be an embarrassment but it shouldn't be a great surprise.

9. As if this is something new. The Republicans have been worse than embarrassments.

They have produced global disasters, FCS! Everyone knows that. But they don't think of it as Republiicans, they think of it as the USA producing the problems. Kerry is playing politics with the situation, clearly.
