Of all the positive new coming from the debate on Wednesday, the best is that Sen. John Kerry (D. Newport, RI) appears to have blown his chance to be secretary of state. As discussed in earlier posts, Kerry has been busting a testicle to convince the president that he has his back. Kerry has gone so far as to claim that it was a positive development that the Muslim Brotherhood took over Egypt and to push the abandonment of US sovereignty at sea.
Now it looks like the road to Foggy Bottom has hit a few bumps. It seems that the Chicago crew needs a scapegoat for the president’s nosedive in the debate. Apparently the Al Gore theory about the Denver altitude didn’t catch on. (BTW- our esteemed governor was nice enough to damage his own credibility by supporting that theory. http://piersmorgan.blogs.cnn.c… )
Wanted: one fall guy. John “Liveshot” Kerry, come on down! Breitbart reports:
Correspondent Bill Plante: “Well Norah, they’re simply upset and really outraged. They blame the President’s team, first of all, for not preparing him to meet the challenge of an aggressive Mitt Romney. They say that nobody in the room challenged him, including the guy that he was debating with, John Kerry, because, as they say, he wants to be Secretary of State so he’s not going to get in the President’s face. …”
It’s a win-win. Either way, Kerry loses.
