Predictable. Obama Bashes Bush While Introducing John Kerry as Secretary of State Nominee

Barack Obama slammed President Bush and defended his atrocious foreign policy while introducing John Kerry as his Secretary of State nominee today in Washington DC.

“When I took office, our nation was engaged in two wars, and al Qaeda was entrenched in their safe havens. Many of our alliances were frayed, and America’s standing in the world had suffered. Over the past four years, we’ve begun a new era of American leadership. We ended the war in Iraq, put the al Qaeda core on the path to defeat, and we’re winding down the war in Afghanistan. We’ve strengthened our alliances, including in Asia; forged new coalitions to meet global challenges; and stood up for human dignity, from North Africa to the Middle East to Burma.”

Here’s Barack:

Now lets look at the facts:

** When I took office al-Qaeda was entrenched in their safe havens.
(Today Al-Qaeda is on the rise throughout northern Africa and the Middle East)
** Many of our alliances were frayed
(Name one.)
** America’s standing in the world had suffered.
(Thanks to Democrats and the liberal media’s constant attacks on Bush and the military)
** We’ve ended the war in Iraq
(Thanks to George Bush this was already put into place before Obama came into office.)
** Put Al-Qaeda core on the path of defeat
(Tell that to Ambassador Stevens.)
** We’ve stood up for human dignity.
(Except when we didn’t like for the Iranians during the Green Revolution, for women in Taliban controlled Afghanistan, for the people suffering in Syria…)

The sad thing is Barack Obama and his media lapdogs believe this ridiculous pabulum.
And he continues to get away with these insulting and absurd remarks.

    Obama lives in another dimension. To go out there and utter that crap with any modicum of decency is the height of ignorant gall.

    Worst. pResident. Ever.

    some great tweets on today’s announcement:

    from [email protected]

    Dems trash Romney for being from Mass, rich, preppy, having too many homes, then pick a Sec of State with all the same stuff.

    Obama hated Mass. Millionaire Romney for only paying %17 taxes, now he appoints Mass. Millionaire Kerry who only paid 12% in taxes.

    In case you forgot what a fraud John Kerry is, take a listen to this –

    The sad thing is that I have heard from Bush II, speaking out politically, exactly ONCE since he left office. The urgent message we needed to hear after we lost the 2012 election? Let’s conduct our discussion of how to handle illegal aliens in our country in a compassionate manner.

    Bush is STILL the guy who drove the Republican party into the ground with his liberal, big spending, compassionate conservative ways.

  • ★FALCON★

    @ Oliver – the main difference between Romney and Kerry – Romney doesn’t hate America nor it’s armed forces.

  • Moonbat_One

    Didn’t Kerry vote for the Iraq War?

  • ★FALCON★

    @ Red State Gal – Bush was the right person for the right time in American history in regards to the war on Terror – however, he was the wrong person when it came to spending.

    However, much of that spending was directly related to the war of terror and it’s associated technology.

    ” We’ve stood up for human dignity.”

    50 million plus dead children disagree. I can not imagine how any American who claims to be a Democrat could possibly claim to stand up for human dignity.

    Kerry Silent at State Announcement

    President Barack Obama sang John Kerry’s praise today, as he nominated the former presidential candidate to be the next secretary of state. But after the president spoke, Kerry did not.

    It is highly unusual for the person being nominated not speak at the press conference being held for him. Nevertheless, that’s what happened today at the White House.

    Congress holds the purse strings,

    Democrats were in the majority for most of the BA term..

    Bush Jr had a slim Republican majority in the house until 2007 when the Democrats gain a 233-198 majority. The Senate was split 50-50 at the beginning of his first term and 49-49-2 at the end of his second term. The democrat party had control of both the the House and Senate, starting January 4th, 2007, when the recession began. The democrats kept control until the voters chose the republican party to reclaim the House starting on January 3rd, 2011, after the first two years of Barack Obama’s presidency.

    both parties suck at spending, however, Obama makes Bush
    look like a cheapskate in every aspect of the word meaning..

  • cavt

    Agree with you totally RedStateGal–Bush had a few good points but overall was pathetic. I don’t care what he believes about presidential dignity, he should never have let(and continue to let) the dictator insult him. By allowing this it reflects also on those of us who voted for him. He has a responsibility to stand up for us but has not done it. Another wimp republican who let’s the leftist insult all of us with impunity. It is just disgusting and reflects poorly on republicans.

    no, imho you are not wrong..

    been noting the pattern for some time now..

    for example:

    Obama : 9/11

    [Now it’s learned that President Obama appeared on the DJ Laz Morning
    Show in Miami, FL and, although it was his first opportunity to speak
    publicly on the anniversary of 9-11, he spoke of the Miami Dolphins, he
    spoke of College Loan reform, he spoke of his campaign, but he left out
    the day that changed America forever.]

    Zawahiri : 9/11

    [Al-Qaeda’s leader Ayman al-Zawahiri has confirmed the death of his
    deputy Abu Yahya al-Libi, who was killed in a drone strike in Pakistan
    this summer. The video confirming his death was released on jihadist
    forums to coincide with the 9/11 anniversary.]

    Arab Forum : 9/11

    [Not only is Barack Obama violating his pledge not to campaign on 9/11,
    but he is also using the day to issue greetings to the Arab Forum on Asset
    Recovery, seemingly oblivious to the importance and solemnity of the day,
    as well as the context of his message.]


  • Indiana

    Obama is a “legend in his own mind.” He’s been listening to Baghdad Valerie blow smoke up his arse. John Kerry is a sissy.

  • Cynicles

    Don’t forget we are supplying arms to al queda in Syria

    The Keystone Pipeline: Too Dirty for George W. Bush?

    [The Keystone XL pipeline, recently approved by the US State Department and awaiting President Obama’s declaration that it is in the “national interest,” will carry oil that is too dirty for the US government to buy — under legislation signed by George W. Bush!]

    Few Americans are ever likely to see George
    W. Bush’s greatest environmental legacy ….

    [Bush’s action was the most sweeping use of the Antiquities Act
    since this somewhat obscure but highly effective conservation
    law was enacted in 1906.]

    Report Shows Air Quality Improved During Bush Administration

    [President George W. Bush drew the ire of environmental groups throughout his eight years in the White House, perhaps the loudest in 2003 when he announced that he would end a Clean Air Act program that required older power plants, refineries and industrial sites to install pollution control devices when they expanded their operations.

    But in looking over the data on air quality from the Bush years, Hayward notes that levels of most air pollutants decreased at a faster rate than they did during the Clinton administration.

    “Mostly of it’s technological change. Quite a bit of it’s been forced by regulation, but a lot of it has been the marketplace,” Hayward said. “The EPA has models that project an 80 percent decline in auto emissions. Nothing Bush could have done was going to change that.”]

    re: Kyoto

    [Putting on a climate-friendly face

    When Al Gore and Bill Clinton came to Kyoto to take part in the negotiations, they had already given up hope of achieving an agreement that would be acceptable to the Senate, according to the researchers. Gore, who led the negotiations for the Americans, knew that he would not be able to get the minimum 67 of the 100 senators needed to support ratification.

    “Instead Gore and Clinton set out to negotiate an agreement that would give the administration a climate-friendly face. They succeeded, but the agreement was so unappealing to the US legislators that the president and vice president did not even send it to the Senate for deliberation when they came home. That was how certain they were it would not be accepted,” Dr Hovi explains.

    According to some US delegates to Kyoto, the US negotiators believed it was possible to get the Senate’s support for an agreement that committed the US to a zero per cent increase in emissions from 1990 to 2012. But when Al Gore arrived at the table, he said the US had to give more, and consequently the delegation ended up committing the Americans to a seven per cent reduction in emissions. Gore knew that US legislators would not accept this since the Senate had just unanimously approved a resolution that went in the opposite direction.]

    the evidence points to Bush having done more for the environment
    than Clinton, Gore & Obama combined, & they haven’t even begun
    bilking US useful climate change hoax fool tools yet.. 🙁

    Déjà Vu: Wm. F. Buckley on the Institute for Policy Studies

    [The “only difference worth noting between” the now-defunct Liberty Lobby and Institute for Policy Studies, the late William F. Buckley Jr., founder of the National Review, wrote May 3, 1981, in the Mobile Register, is that the “IPS people tend to be more literate, more erudite. They’re not as literate or erudite as Lenin or Trotsky, but they are as despicable, nothwithstanding which dozens upon dozens of Washington bureaucrats and congressional aides associate with the IPS, and such senators as Mark Hatfield and journals as The New Republic send valentines to the IPS.”

    The late senator from Oregon, Mark O. Hatfield, was well-known as a Republican “champion of liberal causes” — for 30 years.

    So little has changed. The evidence of liberal Democrat and Republican connections with the America-hating pro-communist IPS has been there for many decades.

    Buckley was prescient:

    “The outgoing head of the National Endowment for the Humanities, which distributes a cool $100 million of federal money to scholars bent on studying this or that, refers to Marcus Raskin, the dominant figure at IPS, as ‘America’s most important intellectual.’ (If this were true, then we’d be in such condition in America as Germany was at a time when one might, in all truth say, that Goebbels was Germany’s most important publicist.)”

    Those among you who might be history-challenged may not know that Joseph Goebbels was “one of Adolf Hitler’s closest associates and most devout followers, … known for his zealous orations and anti-Semitism.”

    America has its equivalent of Goebbels today — except that it has multiplied into an army. It’s called the in-the-tank “mainstream media”, JournoList, progressive bloggers, Organizing for America, and the rest of the White House echo chamber, replete with in-house and contracted public relations “truth tellers”.

    Hoocoodanode? Anyone paying the least bit of attention.]

    Let’s conduct our discussion of how to handle illegal aliens in our country in a compassionate manner.

    Before that even happens, there needs to be even and consistent enforcement of our immigration laws and a secured border. Nothing happens before that. We can talk about how to “handle” the existing illegals after these two steps have been implemented, but not before.

    ht: 100 Percent FED Up

    Examiner: “A new study from the widely respected National Bureau of Economic Research released this week has confirmed beyond question that the left’s race-bait…ing attacks on the housing market (the Community Reinvestment Act–enacted under Carter, made shockingly more aggressive under Clinton) is directly responsible for imploding the housing market and destroying the economy.

    Again, let’s review:

    -President Bush went to Congress repeatedly for years warning them that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were going to destroy the economy (17 times in 2008 alone). Democrats continuously ignored him, shut down his proposals along party lines and continued raiding the institutions for campaign contributions on their way down.”

    December 21, 2012

    New study confirms economy was destroyed by Democrat policies

    [-Even The New York Times admitted that there is “little evidence” of any connection between the “Republican” deregulation measures Obama blames, like the Gramm-Bleach-Liley Act (signed into law by a Democrat), and the collapse of the housing market.

    But non-Fox media have spent years deliberately and relentlessly inoculating people against the facts, training them to mindlessly blame Bush for being in charge when Democrat policies destroyed the economy. So here we sit, to this day, still watching Obama excuse and shrug off endless economic failures, illegal government takeovers and utter national bankruptcy with zero accountability.]


  • SeniorD

    By nominating John F. (Kohn) Kerry (whose Jewish grandparents twilrled a globe on then placed their fingers on Kerry, Ireland when planning to leave their homeland) to be Secretary of State, the Marxist Oval Office Occupier sends a message to the American People and the Merry Muslim Marching Societies. Clear, unambiguous and directly to the point:

    1. The Untied States will no longer step in to protect our (former) allies. They are on their own.
    2. Israel will not receive any further monetary or militarty aid
    3. We join our brothers seeking to gather all countries under a single banner signifying workers everywhere.

    Secession really looks good right now.

    Simply amazing, this lame duck president is still running against G W Bush. After four years in office and re-elected for the last time, the world is not a safer place in fact it’s less safe. Our troops fighting in Afghanistan are fighting under his rules of engagement that make cannon fodder out of them, the Mideast is in shambles and it’s still G W Bush’s fault. Then to top it off, he nominates a traitor for Secretary of State. It’s no damned wonder this government will not pursue better laws in dealing with the mentally disturbed.
