“The Swift Boaters will probably be after him again, but they have no credibility”

The Swift Boaters have no credibility? Really? So how were they able to torpedo John Kerry’s bid for the presidency and when, if ever, were any of their assertions refuted? Clowns like William Delahunt can repeat this gibberish all they want, but that doesn’t make it true.

U.S. Sen. John F. Kerry’s service in Vietnam and his status as a longtime congressional foreign policy czar make him uniquely suited as a leading contender for secretary of state — but even friends admit his past missteps also could make him a prime target for opponents during confirmation hearings.

“The Swift Boaters will probably be after him again, but they have no credibility,” said former U.S. Rep. William Delahunt, who served on the House Committee on Foreign Affairs and often worked with Kerry. “I’ve always felt John Kerry was a cut above anybody in terms of foreign policy in the United States. He practiced it, he lived it, and he had an understanding of it that makes him extremely qualified for the job.”

His betrayal of the men he served with aside, Kerry also has more recent problems, like dodging taxes in his home state. Granted, that’s a resume-enhance with this administration.

Kerry received three Purple Hearts for his service in the Navy during the Vietnam War and served for nearly three decades on the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations. But he has also come under fire as a leading Vietnam War opponent, and has recently come under criticism for viewing Syrian President Bashar al-Assad as a reformer.

But as a stooge like Delahunt would say, viewing Assad as a reformer make his “extremely qualified” for the job.

    Swift boaters? Hell, everybody I know dodged the draft – What about tax evasion?

    Will John Kerry have the same person to defend him this time?

    Is that guy still in prison by the way?

    Still waiting on the disclosure of his full military records.
    Still.
    Waiting.

    His Hopeful Changeness is going to nominate a Secretary of State who thinks at least somewhat like he does — a lefty incompetent, in other words. The best he could do would be to ask Colin Powell to return — Gen Powell is competent but he’s also more of a lefty than I had realized. I doubt Gen Powell would take the job, though.
    So the Senate will eventually have to sign off on the least bad case candidate that Obama offers. If Sen Kerry goes to State, that at least keeps him away from Defense (Obama’s sure choice of incompetents for Defense is another debate). It also opens up the Senate seat for possibly a Republican and removes all the seniority from the seat — there’s something to be said for both of Taxachussetts’s Senators being junior.
    When the president is a fuzzy-thinking incompetent, the Cabinet will reflect that. All we can hope for is a not-as-bad-as-others option for each critical appointment.

    John Kerry for Secretary of State is like Hanoi Jane heading up Defense. What a disgrace and a kick in the balls to the men and women who served and who died in Vietnam. John Kerry is a pathetic traitor.

    Unfortunately, since the end of the 2004 campaign, the left has continously gone on the airwaves and stated that the Swift boat veterans had been debunked, without being called on it by the hosts or otherson the show of course. So that to the large number of LIVs out there, the Swift Boat Veterans have indeed no credibilty.

    Old Lurch is starting to look like a mummy. Maybe they need to obligate $1,000,000 for a full-time cosmetologist.

    I’d say John Kerry will leave a mark on US foreign policy that folks in the future will marvel at!
    But I’d be lying, so I won’t.
    It’s gonna be fun though watching this gigolo rich boy toy to a ketchup baroness get involved with real live mean people who won’t be impressed by his hat, trip up the Mekong during Christmas or botoxed face..
    His first trip should be to Benghazi.
