Kerry's pointless tour

Kerry's pointless tour

There are 286 comments on the New York Post story from Feb 22, 2013, titled Kerry's pointless tour. In it, New York Post reports that:

On Sunday, new Secretary of State John Kerry starts a tour of nine countries in Europe and the Middle East; the State Department calls it a "listenting tour." Yet, while listening is part of diplomacy, it can't substitute for policy, especially in the case of the only superpower.

Hey jumbles, do you believe John Kerry's stint in the Navy, Vietnam with Three Purple Hearts, a Silver Star, and a Bronze Star Medal was not a job?
Do you believe Hagel's stint as an infantry squad in Vietnam and a recipient of two Purple Hearts was not a job?
Come you guys, you types are so jingoistic, so hugga hugga and so hateful that you can't discern facts unless they come with a whinge, a grinch, a smear or misinformation.
Try again ...
I did 2 tours in the Navy, including picket duty on the Cuban Blockade. I didn't then consider it a 'job' and still don't. It was an education, a service to my country, something that entitled me to vote.

What have you done for your country?

Guys, it was a simple question when some frightwinger said that Hagel and Kerry had never had a job.
And the question was a simple one -
Is serving in Vietnam considered a job to you folks?
.... because I am sure Vietnam veterans would be suprised at such idiocy.
This is somewhat hypocritical when you folks consider anyone who has NOT "served our country" not worthy of a political position.
Both those guys,Never had a job in private industry, and could marry well.. Never besmurshed military service, never will. You on the other hand probably haven't done either, serve or had a job?

Dear, I have never questioned Bush's golf countings, Bushh-wifey's hair or what she wore and I couldn't care a rats a**** about his children and what they were doing. I don't even know how many kids he had. I never asked about his college transcript, his birth certificate or any other silly obsession you folks have.
Perhaps because we knew good ol'Cheney was running the show!(LOLL)
What mattered on Bush=baby's time were two wars and how he left the country. You know .... the big issues that effect us all.
Obama deploys troops in Africa for another drone base... tell us again about the Nobel Prize for war.........hahahahahah

Never said anything about their military service, whether John F'n Kerry, and Chucky Hagel ever deserved or didn't deserve service metals that were given is a story for a different day. We do know John F'n Kerry lobbied like hell to get his. By the way, he also marries well...

Bush gaffed a thousand times more often than Biden and Obama combined, and they were REAL gaffes.
All the things you claim were said about Bush are lies. No one said those things. The dumb, idiotic things he ACTUALLY did were more than enough, starting with his failure to prepare for the terrorist attack which occurred 9/11/01.
Sit down and SHUT UP.
Who's President now-Bush? Didn't he leave over 4 years ago? You people cannot except any responsibility for anything. You have to find someone to blame. Obama is destroying America. That's totally from Liberals.

There has been no report on BHO's DroneMilitary Base in Africa. This must be part of the plan to make things fairer.
When it is turned over to the locals, it will be the 70s in Africa again.

The same thing was said back in 2009 about President Obama’s speech in Cairo, Egypt… and a year later came the Arab Spring. I think it is safe to say that ‘We the People’ will go with Obama and Kerry on this over the naysayers who can’t beat Obama, win an election and were wrong on 9-11 and the Iraq war.

Mali has a history that dates along with the Bible. The people get by, and are often shown with a 'Sally Strothers' asking for donations.
Ancient trade route may be the motivation to exploit the location.

Dears, becoming personal isn't helpful to the conversation.

No, I have never served in the military, never wish to and never will. And no I did not believe the mumbo jumbo that got us into two wars under Bush-baby.

I believe that those serving in the military (especially Vietnam) would consider that an "education", a "commitment", a job and any other jingoistic terms you wish to add.

Demeaning politicians because you believe they have not had a real job (ie served our country in the military) is ignorant and disrespectful to veterans - even if you don't like their politics.
