Kerry: Budget Impasse a Challenge for US Diplomacy
ABC OTUS News – 8 hours ago...


Secretary of State John Kerry says the greatest challenge to U.S. foreign policy is not emerging China or Middle East instability. It's Congress.

In a speech Wednesday at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, Kerry cited the adage that "we can't be strong in the world unless we are strong at home." He called the budget impasse a threat.

The State Department has said automatic spending cuts would jeopardize $2.6 billion in aid, security assistance and other international programs.

Kerry said legislators need to avoid "senseless cuts."

Otherwise, he said his credibility as a diplomat might be damaged.

Kerry said, "Think about it: It's hard to tell the leadership of any number of countries that they must resolve their economic issues if we don't resolve our own."

Translation: I got out of Harry Reid's senate just in time. They can't pin this on me now.

I thought Kerry's credibility was plenty damaged when George Bush won the presidency over him, or maybe when he bought his sailboat out of state to avoid his state's sales taxes on boats.

Slewsie dear, do those evil Rethuglicants ever say anything when they do not lie? According to you, they always lie.

A Russian woman named Niether married an American gentleman Trashy born in Virginia and they lived happily ever after in "his" home town.

The poor lady Niether was not very proficient in English, but did manage to communicate with her husband Trashy.
The real problem arose whenever she had to shop for groceries.

One day, Niether went to the butcher counter and wanted to buy chicken legs. Niether didn't know how to put forward her request, so, in desperation, Niether clucked like a chicken and lifted up her skirt to show her thighs.
Her butcher got the message and gave her the chicken legs.

Next day Niether needed to get chicken breasts, again she didn't know how to say it, so she clucked like a chicken and unbuttoned her blouse to show the butcher her breasts.
The butcher understood again and gave Niether some chicken breasts.

On the 3rd day, the poor lady needed to buy sausages. Unable to find a way to communicate this, Niether brought her husband Trashy to the store...

Slewsie dear, you know I love your jokes. But this is not half as good as the one about the dead Marine or the kid with cancer. Tell those again, that is your best work.
