‘Delusional!’ Martha MacCallum snark-reports Kerry claiming Syria credit

Look at him, look at HIM!

The snarky, even if unintentional,  all-caps “HE” is an excellent touch. Because, what?! According to David Axelrod, it was President Obama’s credibility. Stop, our aching sides! The mockery following that absurdity was swift and spectacular. Plus, as Twitchy readers know, the true credit goes to actor and comedian Albert Brooks, who transmitted to Vladimir with spooky success.


Twitter users aren’t picking up what John “incredibly small” Kerry is laying down:

Of course, it’s not surprising coming from anyone in President Ego’s administration:

Indeed. Remember, President Obama loves to insert himself into the biographies of other presidents and into historic moments.

    OK OK……. its cliche’ but it must be said………..

    Obama, Kerry…………. you didn’t do that, somebody else made that happen

    • QueenB

      The cliche’ applies much more in this context than in the context in which those words were first spoken by the one.

    • Canadian in USA

      Still…well said. :)

    • therantinggeek

      The above down-vote was brought to you by the Liberal Left, whom continue to take offense of our poking fun at this current administration :) #ThatsAllFolks

      • Calcat36

        Remember when the POTUS used to be the most powerful man in the world? John F’n Kerry just surrendered that position to Vlad!

  • Clayton Grant

    I knew this would happen!
    Maybe if Powers along with Kerry had attended the Security Council meeting and proposed the removal of Assad’s weapons FIRST, instead of saying all diplomatic solutions had been exhausted, I could believe them, but not now.

      me too!!! these guys know how to spin!!!!!!!!!

      • TruthWFree

        Spin all they want…they have run out of gullible people. Kinda like Muslim suicide bombers running out of virgins.

    • b_truit

      You my friend were spot on.

      • b_truit

        You got a down vote. In going to make a point, albeit small but a point still. Clearly this admin blundered this whole mess and then saw an escape route offered by Putin. Putin played them like a fiddle. Now Kerry claims credit. You called this yesterday. That is all truth, and truth is not subjective. So my point… That it is impossible to reason with a liberal, this is not coke or Pepsi, decaf or regular, this is truth vs lies, good vs evil. The Sooner everyone realizes that the better. /rant over

        • TruthWFree

          You got no down votes…even the lib agrees with you…:)

    Even Twitchy’s usual phrase in this sort of situation – “Spin, spin like the wind!” – seems somehow hopelessly inadequate.

      Are we talking about the anniversary of the unpunished, unaccounted for Benghazi jihadi embassy attacks?

      They’re still getting away with way too much.

  • Bill Phillips

    It’s a Mea Culpa on the part of Kerry to get back into Obama’s good graces!

    • TruthWFree

      Since they are both liars, do they believe each other?

  • beebop1952

    If Kerry didn’t make himself look foolish, he’d have to resign for drawing near to competent. Can’t have any of that …. Putin and 0bama in the hall of mirrors. Which one preens more?

    This is off topic. But there aren’t any relevant Twitchy posts, so I’m going to put it here. 13 Democrats have been charged with embezzling funds that were supposed to go to the needy and AIDS patients. One of them is Jeremiah “Mega Racist” Wright’s daughter. http://www.reagancoalition.com/articles/2013/20130910004-dems-wright-charged.html

      I thought Obama cured aids.

    • right_on

      Wright is no mere “mega-racist”…he is a socialist, as well. Isn’t that where the Black Liberation Theology has it’s roots? One must assume he shared his underdog vision of black America with his offspring, so it is not surprising to me to find hypocrisy here, nor finding that these socialist elites, black or otherwise, do what socialist elites have always done…steal from those whom they pretend to support, or fight for. That’s why it’s so easy for our elected officials to do the same with the taxpayer.

  • owenmagoo

    Reality’s headline:
    Kerry steps in sh*t, saves Obama.

    We veterans are not surprised by Kerry trying to claim the credit for this. Just ask the Vietnam Vets who were on the river boats with him. He claimed to be a hero then too. Smacks of Stolen Valor. Go to hell LT. Navy Chief (Ret)

    • AmericanMom

      There are a lot of Vietnam vets in Toledo, Ohio who are die-hard democrats who watch MSNBC and CNN and would vote for Obama the 3rd time if they could. A wife of one of them told me the legion hall members there are pretty much all of the same mindset. They had union jobs and remain members after retirement and vote the way their union tells them to vote.
      I think indoctrination (military and liberal news) has melted their minds.

      • US vs. Them

        Right – because as we ALL know, the United States military is a notorious hotbed of progressive liberals.

        • AmericanMom

          I didn’t say that. There are areas in this country where people like us (conservatives) can’t say what we believe to veterans who have been liberals all their lives (they don’t want to hear anything anti-Obama). I wish it weren’t so and I still respect their service to America 100%.

          • US vs. Them

            Maybe, just maybe, the veterans of completely pointless wars – after surviving the horrors – have formed their own opinions through the full spectrum of America (and yes, the rest of the world) during the last 50 years.

          • AmericanMom

            I agree with you.

          • Ralph_Gizzip

            I respect their service but not their intelligence.

          • AmericanMom

            Ditto. Like I said before, it’s indoctrination from whatever point (family, military, marriage, whatever) to the present day. Getting news from vile sources and believing conservatives are responsible for every evil in the world (blaming Bush and us), they make ideal low-information voters.

      • Phil

        Hmmmm….. Boenher is from Ohio too.

        • AmericanMom

          I rest my case.

      • Scorpion

        I don’t know the socio-economic status of the Vietnam Vets in Toledo, but in my area you won’t find any O bumper stickers. All the Viet Vets I know, myself included, and the one’s that attend Memorial Day & Veterans Day events will bristle at being labeled as indoctrinated. The only indoctrination we still cling to is to “never leave one behind”.
        Keep in mind those veterans at the time were considered “lower than whale sh_t” in terms of who gets respect. You don’t know who they voted for when that curtain closed.

        • AmericanMom

          My brother’s wife told me she hears the same liberal mindset when she goes along with him to his veterans meeting there in Toledo. She said they all think alike. They are going to the big veterans powwow in Kokomo coming up. I would hope and pray the messages they hear there educate them and help the liberal ones (like my brother) to get a dose of reality about politics today and the destructiveness of cuts to the military and veterans in general.

          My brother says he’s a new Christian, always sitting there with his Bible out in front of him, but voted for Obama who is for abortion and homosexuality. Since he’s a liberal, there’s no talking to him, even about those issues.

  • billkoch

    He can add that this accolade to the scratches that earned him Purple Hearts in Vietnam. I wonder when they will change the name of Heintz Ketchup to Kerry Ketchuup.

  • right_on

    Obama is also claiming credit for the idea, telling Chris Wallace yesterday that IT was a topic that HE discussed (or, put forward) with Putin during their G20 meeting. Can’t we just start calling Obama “President Incredible & Awesome?” Nothing he says is credible, and he thinks he’s one awesome dude…so, there ya go!

  • Harry Stolzy

    I actually first heard of this on Fox from a retired Diplomat or Military (can’t remember which)…..He said that Putin could avert the whole thing if he stepped in and took control of the chemicals….He went on to say that Putin would never do that because of his disdain for Obama…This was a a day or so before Kerry uttered the same words….Maybe he gets his info/ideas from the news also….:)

    Honestly, folks, how much lower can this clan of clowns go!

  • DutyFirst

    The reporter who asked Kerry – “Is there anything that Assad could do to avoid a military strike” should have the credit. The credit will not last long however. Anyone remember another sweetheart named Hussein who gave the world the run around on WMD for over 10 years. If anything comes to pass, any inspectors will get to see lot of the Syrian countryside but none anywhere near any ‘real’ WMD stockpiles. Assad/Russia/Iran can spin this out for years.
