WTF is wrong with Kerry? And WTF is the matter with Biden appointing him to anything.

Global warming, or climate change as the right-wing would have us call it (roll eyes), is too important to have a fool like Kerry handling it.

I saw this and felt the same OP.

Elder gays, tell me about Kerry’s failed candidacy. Is he not an effective politician? He doesn’t seem to be….

by Anonymousreply 1October 11, 2021 4:08 PM

Absolutely agree OP.

Was stunned by Kerry’s appointment.

He is an ogre. Not to mention coddled by extreme wealth jet-setting here, there, and everywhere on private planes while preaching to the general populace about the dangers of climate change.

Can you spell hypocrisy? Many thousands of tons of CO2 which are spewed into the atmosphere thanks to John’s luxurious lifestyle can.

He is one of the most rude, arrogant and clueless people in politics.....and that’s a very low bar atm given Trump and his treasonous ilk.

Boris thread trying to stir up trouble among gullible people likely to vote for Democrats. Kerry served in Vietnam and came back and said it was a pointless war. He also brokered the Iran deal to stall them from developing nuclear weapons that Trump immediately came in and shat all over. He knows what he's doing so fuck off OP.

Are all Democrats perfect? Fuck no. But OP/Boris/GQP operative knows that people can be persuaded to not vote a certain way because they don't like someone's personality. It worked for Obama and Hillary and now they're trying to throw everything they can at Biden. Why? Because they KNOW his agenda is popular with the majority of American people.

One of my favorite Kerry stories came from the 2004 campaign. John and Elizabeth Edwards always made a big deal of going to Wendy’s for their anniversary because that’s where they met or went to eat on their first date or something. Anyway, Kerry went with them to Wendy’s on the campaign trail and was apparently shocked and appalled when the Edwards actually ate what they ordered because Kerry had thought it was all something a con to make them look like regular folks. Apparently Kerry had a habit of ordering food to go at Midwestern diners and state fairs on the campaign trail and then giving the food to aides while he’d have a nice fancy catered meal waiting for him back at the hotel.

Biden upholding the status quo with his cabinet choices is not a surprise, people. The Democratic Party lives to serve, but it doesn't serve the general populace. Oh sure, they'll throw out a few socially liberal bones to appease those clamoring that the Party catch up to changing times, but they'll ultimately just perform a tired song and dance (sometimes with stern wording even!) then take the milqetoast route to continue propping up the status quo. The GOP is just the party of the lunatic fringe now and any old school Republicans are nothing more than prehistoric bugs trapped in amber because of it. Hopefully younger generations will move in the world differently and laugh as thes antiquated systems of governance collapse behind them.

If we were the UK, there would be a cabinet shuffle. It was DNC hack and suck-up Blinken who screwed up the Afghanistan exit. His fellow DNC hacks and suck-ups Biden appointed because they weren't stars and wouldn't take the limelight away from him: Mayorkas at HS, Garland at Justice, McDonough at Veterans' Admin. Haven't you noticed how Biden has sidelined Kamala to ensure she doesn't take the limelight away from him?

Kerry was a star. The logical cabinet appointments for State, Justice, HS, Defense were Susan Rice, Sally Yates, Beto O'Rourke and Admiral McRaven. All stars. Biden evidently suffered living in Barack Obama's shadow for 8 years and decided he'd appoint a bunch of DNC hacks so he could -finally- shine.
