Thoughts on Watching John Kerry on Fox News Sunday

It's not easy to make me feel sympathy for John Kerry.

It took some real talent for Obama to make me feel bad for Kerry. Kerry is a generally reprehensible person, but in this episode he had to:

  • explain why Obama was right to delay the action he clearly called for yesterday
  • lie straight-faced (“a horse walked into a bar…”) to claim that the Cabinet had been consulted before Obama changed tacks, when Chris Wallace was quoting the White House that the Cabinet hadn’t been consulted

as well as generally supporting the Presidential power that he and Obama ran against in their campaigns.

Just remember, at these prices, we call them escorts.

My humble opinion is that ANY politician who places their personal ambition ahead of what is best for the country deserves whatever negative consequences result from their selfish pursuit of power. They should be publicly scorned and humiliated...the list is too long to print in this forum. I believe what your good intention is failing to recognize is reciprocity, Mr. Martin; any forgiveness/sympathy only emboldens predators like Mr. Heinz who will look at such kindness as a weakness to also be exploited for their personal gain. Bubba was a master of that policy.

Speaking for myself, it's not conceivable I could feel sorry for him.

I hear the "I almost feel sorry for them" line far too often from conservatives. We need to learn and practice pitilessness when it comes to these people.

Or we can just keep losing.

Get real, Charlie!

Kerry is just one more in a long line of Obama regime participants who lie publicly, and knowingly, as the price of basking in the Emperor's favor. Some, Like Jay Carney, are just better at doing it with a straight face.

Semantics. This article and the comments is solid proof of the nullification of language and how it is used to bring down a culture and society.

Charlie doesn't mean to excuse him when he says he feels sorry for him. He means he feels sorry for him in the same way that Jesus would feel sorry that the pharisees were doomed to hell.

That is the old definition of feeling sorry for someone.

The new definition as defined by public schools and leftist relative morality is what most of the commentators are understanding Charlie to mean. And that is if you feel sorry for someone you excuse their behavior and you empathize with them.

What he said. Buddhists (cross reference to the Sunday columns) call it karuna, compassion.

JF, Your point is well made. I accept your definition of sorrow as a Christian man. Jesus would indeed feel sorry for JFK as a non-believer whose heart is hardened to the truth and whose life is is filled with acts harmful to others; a lost wandering sheep condemned by his own lack of faith and belief. Time to remove the board from our own eyes I suppose.

Kerry is a globalist. Notice, he has no problem with the suffering in the Congo, or North Korea.

The agenda is to support the Muslim Brotherhood in reforming the Caliphate. I suspect, in return they will have a Central bank, and one coin. The CFR government has sold this country's soul to Old Knob's agenda. DaOne, and company are Americans on paper only, and when it is convenient.

Just look at the WTO, and the CFR plans for North America as an example of what I am writing. The New Age is here. It is written G-d will throw these POS a bone to have their vein attempts succeed. But, only for one hour. or a short time.

What will be the lie that causes the whole world to be mislead?

Why would you fell sorry for the guy who gets his just humiliation? I feel only satisfaction for justice done. Heck, it is not even enough. He should be ridden out of town on a rail.

We should feel sorry for Kerry because all the Botox injected into his face has clouded his judgement. He let Obama humiliate him in front of the entire world and then went on all the Sunday shows to justify that humiliation.

Sarin gas, you say? Aren't you the same weasels who assured us that the murders of our folks at Benghazi were the result of a tape on U-Tube and certainly not terrorists?
The truth? Well, if his lips were moving...

No, Charlie, it's just that no one held a gun to Kerry's head to force him into the SoS position. He took that job knowing full well that his predecessor had lied to protect the boss, and that he too, was very likely to soon be in a similar situation. It's just dumb to feel sorry for someone like that.

You know, I'm getting the sense that you-all think that to feel sorry for a "generally reprehensible person" means to excuse him.

I believe you are confusing "feeling sorry" with someone for abhorrence or possibly disgust, which is what we truly feel. John Kerry-Heinz is repulsive personified and deserving of public scorn and humiliation. But, he is by no means alone....scores of both dems and republicans are right there alongside him.

No, we just don't feel sorry for him. Selling his integrity is hardly knew for him.

I don't feel sorry for Mr. Heinz....he can sleep in the bed he's made for himself. I feel sorry for the ISRAELIES (and US) who are going to suffer the consequences of such an incompetent, amateur, mooslim-loving diplomatic strategy and decision making process. We now have a defacto American Ayatollah in the White Mosque using our military power (or what's left of it) to actively PROTECT AND SUPPORT the same mooslim terrorists who want to kill us. Impeachment cannot come soon enough - race riots be damned..... Enough is enough!

Charlie, Sorry, you're wrong to think others would feel sorry for JFK. Would you feel sorry for Hitler's Hermann Goering? No of course not. His crimes are too much to be excused. While JFK's crimes are not, yet, in the league with Goering, JFK is clearly a liar, whose knowing Congressional perjury, gave aid to the enemy in the Vietnam War and undoubtedly lead to more deaths of American soldiers in that terrible conflict. If you want to feel sorry for someone, feel sorry for the innocents who will undoubtedly die when Obama and JFK finally order the attack whose impact on the Syrian War will be nil at best while further destroying America's influence in the world. Finally, I wonder, from whom will we borrow the money to pay for the attack as the military has already said they don't currently have the funds to pay for said attack?

So John Kerry had to lie? He is well practiced at ever since he slandered the men with whom he served in Vietnam. He is a disgrace and a traitor and he has reapt what he sowed.
