Kerry's star rises with global conflicts

Washington (CNN) - Whenever a conflict pops up around the world, he has become the go-to guy, either rolling up his sleeves in the Senate or flying from hot spot to hot spot.

John Kerry is, after all, the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, holder of one of the most influential positions in Congress and one of the United States' ambassadors to the world.

    I thought we already had a lead from behind President? I thought we already had a Secretary of State?? I thought we already had an Obama Czar for everything under the sun??? Has this buffoon nothing to do for the state of Massachusetts? Has he solved our financial mess? Did his bazillionaire wife throw him out or something?

    Kerry is a joke and non-factor. I live in Massachusetts and can not think of one thing this career elitist has every accomplished for his constituents.

    Why the long face, John? Kerry's a bufoon and a disgrace to the uniform. He's anti-American.

    John Kerry is a joke, always has been, always will be. Can't believe he nearly became president, thank heavens we sidestepped that land mine.

    John Kerry is responsible for the bill giving Pakistan over $100 million a month in aid. That would be reasonable if there was any follow-up to manage what they are doing for us in return for all of that money. The fact that Osama Bin Laden was living in the backyard of their largest military training base and that they were told this by Afghanistan's Chief Intelligence Officers 3 years ago suggests that we are being taken for fools. John Kerry needs to be held accountable.

    I am telling this guy, he needs to understand that "Pakistan is not an ally for USA" It used American dollar to feed and give shelter to Bin Laden. It needs lot of money to feed terrorist in there and pretending nice....listen and do not give a dime...good luck, Sen. Kerry.
