It is with some measure of sadness that I see that the Senate has confirmed John Kerry with a vote of 94-3 to replace Hillary Clinton. The fact that Republicans were as eager to praise John Kerry makes me fear for the future of the GOP – the “go along, to get along” party of institutionalized politics, profits and pandering.
From the man accused of harboring an illegal alien in his office and is being investigated as a potential child molester …
"Sen. Kerry will need no introduction to the world's political and military leaders and will begin Day One fully conversant not only with the intricacies of U.S. foreign policy, but able to act on a multitude of international stages," said Sen. Bob Menendez, D-N.J., who will succeed Kerry as committee chairman. Voting “NO” Jim Inhofe of Oklahoma and John Cornyn and Ted Cruz of Texas. Absent: Patty Murray (D-WA) John Hoeven (R-ND) <Source>
Sen. Robert Menendez employed as an unpaid intern in his Senate office an illegal immigrant who was a registered sex offender, now under arrest by immigration authorities, The Associated Press has learned. The Homeland Security Department instructed federal agents not to arrest him until after Election Day, a U.S. official involved in the case told the AP. <Source>
Senator Bob Menendez (D-N.J.) is being investigated by the FBI for allegedly hiring underage prostitutes in the Dominican Republic. <Source>
Perfect – a “too big to fail” politician takes Kerry’s place on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
Bottom line …
It appears that you can no longer trust the democrats or the republicans to look out for America’s best interests. How this anti-America elitist can become the Secretary of State – and be replaced by a corrupt New Jersey politician is beyond me.
