John-kerry clueless

I report.

You decide:

Max Steinberg, from Los Angeles, visited Israel, several years ago. He soon returned, joined the IDF, and became a sharpshooter in the elite Golani Brigade.

Max was one of the first casualties of the Israel-Hamas conflict.

It was unclear whether his parents and two siblings would be able to catch a flight for his funeral, and so the call went out in Israel, on Facebook and Twitter, for people to attend the funeral of the “Lone Soldier.”

His family did attend the funeral.

So did 30,000 Israelis.

John Kerry was in Israel that day, and he went to visit Max’s parents.

So, what do you say to jet-lagged, grief-stricken parents who have just buried their 24 year old son?

Via Free Beacon: Kerry to Mother of Fallen IDF Soldier: ‘How’s Your Day?’

….According to the Los Angeles Jewish Journal, “Kerry entered and exited the room swiftly, surrounded by men in black and refusing to take any questions from press.”

“How’s your day?” Kerry asked as he sat down. “How’s your day?” Evie [Steinberg’s mother] asked back. “My day’s going better than yours,” he said.

    I think the question to ask is: How evil is John Kerry?

  2. Vintageport says:

    Like death and taxes, Kerry making an a$$ of himself at such an inopportune moment has become the certainty upon which we can, and do, depend. Makes you want to just slap him and ask “what is wrong with you?” Whatever has destroyed the nerves feeding his facial muscles has obviously penetrated much much deeper. Only a souless person could behave in such a way.

  3. Di Grace says:

    I hope his parting words weren’t, “Have a nice day.” I wouldn’t put it past him though. His mind was clearly on other things.

    Apparently long-term exposure to pickle juice causes brain damage.

  5. strider says:

    Seems shaken. Wonder if people are laughing at him to his face as he clomps around.

  6. Teri says:

    He is like the rest of the crowd he runs around with. Ignorant, moronic, elitist, selfish and Godless. Catholic my ass.

  7. Kitten says:

    Lurch is running around the world like a zombie. Lifeless, clueless and ineffective. He probably didn’t know where he was, who he was talking to, or why he was there. 🙁

  8. Dave says:

    I knew John Effing Kerry was a man without a chest when he testified a pack of filthy lies before the infamous Senate speech. He has been nothing but a gigolo since marrying one woman after another richer than the last. He is the epitome of a soulless empty suit.

    • Norm says:

      Yes Dave…I vividly remember that “testimony” from John Effin’. I had been home from Vietnam about a year. I along with a lot of my buddies had joined the Vietnam Veterans Against the War (VVAW) while in Vietnam. But when I heard him spout the lies about me and the other vets, I dropped the VVAW like a hot rock. I was disgusted and felt utterly betrayed by that POS. I have never nor will I ever forgive that SOB; he is worse than Fonda in my eyes.

      • Dave says:

        Hey Norm;
        Welcome home brother. I was in the VVAW and dumped it after also. I did not want to give credence to Kerry’s kind at all. I think he was and still is a traitor.

    As if additional proof is needed, read Charlie Spiering’s piece at
    “John Kerry Horrified By Child Holding Severed Head: ‘That Child Should Be In School'”

    This is what I believe about John Kerry. Obama wanted someone that was not a bright light after Hillary left. Someone, who, I am sure would not do a very good job or out shine ” The One “. So in a nutshell, he wanted someone that was looking for a big Title and not very smart, and would do what he was told. Obama knew John Kerry was just the man to fill this job.

  11. WalkStar says:

    Maybe the Botox seeped into his brain.

  12. Alain41 says:

    Yes, Figuratively (and therefore Literally).

    Relative to State Dept. interests, I notice that Kerry isn’t in Panama. The Canal opened 100 years ago, August 15, 1914.

    And in old monarchy news, the Head of the House of Bourbon who would be King Louis XX if France went back to the monarchy is a handsome man.

  13. Cathode Rays says:

    He thinks like a criminal, his sympathies are with criminals, he was unstable in the military (swift-boating!!!) and is therefore is a liberal. Liberalism is a mental disorder. — Michael Savage.

  14. Trevor says:

    Kerry is all kinds of stupid, and the reported remarks do sound curt and crass, but if you follow the links back to the Jewish Journal you’ll view his interaction with the family in a different light:

    The Free Beacon report is misleading, partial and dishonest. I know that selective quoting of conservatives is done all the time, but we should hold ourselves to a higher standard than libs and their cronies. Sticks in my throat to say it, but Kerry did nothing wrong here.

    • Alain41 says:

      Would like to know what is the additional information that updated the story. Maybe the Free Beacon wasn’t inaccurate and the Journal updated the story to put Kerry into context after the Journal saw how the story was being reported elsewhere.
