The State Department is drowning in lies about John Kerry’s maritime exploits, so the toadies at ABC News are throwing out a life preserver:

Really, guys?

Oh, ABC News … what will you report next?

‘He’s been working non-stop’: MSNBC analyst, former Obama ‘Car Czar’ sails swiftly to John Kerry’s defense

    President Kennedy was focused on the Cuban Missile Crisis except for a brief period in which he admitted to reporters he had stepped into a janitor’s closet to watch cartoons.

    • tm11999

      so you’re saying “it’s a job he can do online and he doesn’t really have to come into the office to be hard at it, and we are making a mountain out of a molehill” right? am i understanding you”

      • $30423294

        No way. I’m saying if my President watched cartoons during an international crisis, I would say that President is wrong in the head.

        John F. Kerry = JFK (get it, literally the initials JFK, that was the connection see? I make readers work a little to get the jokes, most times I fail).

        So JFK Kerry is told Egypt is in flames, and the very first thing to pop into his little cartoon brain is, hey time to go out for some me time. A couple of movies, some steaks on the BBQ, a little dancing, etc. See? Kerry ain’t right in the head, is where I was going there.

        To summarize the comedic analysis: I riffed on Kerry’s initials JFK, pointing to a leftist icon. Libs were supposed to be challenged to ask, hey, if the other JFK did something really inexplicable during a crisis, they would have thought he has a mental disease. But John F. Kerry? Well we don’t expect too much from him, so sure, Secretary of State, whatever, what’s the worst that can happen? Let’s roll the dice.

        Lots of layers there. Clearly a fail, but I try to keep things interesting but I figure if I’m going to die on comedy hill, at least I will die trying.

          thanks for the clarification, i see some of the most ridiculous spinning for pres. o’stupid that my antenna sometimes wants to shoot first, clear out the country of commies, then start the rebuilding.

  • TJ

    It the end it is not that it mattered if he was on the SS Minnow, it was they lie about it. They have back themselves into a corner thank to the foreign policy over the last 4.5 years and there is nothing that they could other than watch TV and let the coup unfold as a spectator

    How does abc “news politics” know? Were they on the yacht with kerry, watching him be focused on Egypt?

    • trixiewoobeans

      They don’t need to watch, they were TOLD, and everybody knows this Administration never lies!

      Don’t be silly, he was sailing south-east . . . right towards Egypt, how could he NOT be focused on it?

    • cscape

      they know because that’s what Kerry’s staff told them…. end of story (and, coincidentally, also the END of any semblance of critical journalism… they are nothing more than stenographers)

      No, no, he lives in the land of de-Nile, no thought required.

    If this had been a GOP President’s administration where the State Dept. outright lied about SecState’s whereabouts during an international crisis, does ANYBODY think ABC News would have spun it like this?

    • ObamaFail

      Imagine if a GOP President’s whereabouts during a terrorist attack on one of our embassies were unknown and his administration was doing everything they could to help cover it up. Like when Obama disappeared during Benghazi and has never once answered what he was doing that was so important that Benghazi wasn’t a priority.

      • rennyangel2

        Has any “news” reporter even asked obozo where he was during Benghazi? They’ve asked Carney and Axelhood and other ancillary worthless shyts, but has the WH “press ‘corpse'” ever actually asked where behind leader where his behind was?

    Was that before he called Morsi and asked him if he was still in charge?

    Obama is pro-life despite supporting law to allow doctors to Gosnell babies during botched abortions.

    Obama and Kerry “Magic Hat, Magic Hat, will we “F” up Egypt again?. And the Magic Hat replies “Are you two joking?”

  • rennyangel2

    Kerry isn’t focused on anything except Kerry. Just like obozo and Shrilliary. They are th Bobsy triplets.

    A yacht that sails up denial is the closest Kerry comes to Egypt.

  • Headbangerguy

    I heard that Kerry was in Cambodia on the Fourth of July — no wait, that’s where he goes on Christmas.

    This just in:

    Michael Moore focused on his diet despite inhaling a side of beef.
    Wil Wheaton focused on polite discourse despite telling Scott Walker to go f*** himself.
    Liberals focused on the Obama presidency despite invoking George Bush’s name at the drop of a hat.
    Obama focused on implementing Obamacare despite missed deadlines, Sebelius meetings with Congress that go nowhere, and delaying a key part of the bill.

    Obama doesn’t like the Middle East, it just looks like one big sand filled bunker to him.

    While I endorse Laissez Faire Economics, I don’t know that I’m such a fan of Laissez Fiare Foreign Relations . . . on the other hand, with the likes of Kerry & Clinton in charge . . . it may be the best policy.

  • salvagesalvage

    Yes Kerry should be…. should be.. doing.. stuff about Egypt like…?

  • cscape

    The ABC headline ought to have been, “Kerry focused on VACATION, despite EGYPT”!

  • cscape

    We have a “DIrector of Public Safety” here in Massachusetts who was MIA (missing in action) during the Boston Marathon Terror Attack back in April. She does however surface every other week to cash her substantial CHECK for one twenty-fourth of her nearly 200 thousand dollar a year “salary”!

  • neoface

    Watch this, at end of Kerry’s term like Hillary, her will also be the greatest Sec. State ever. Of course without any viable evidences. The truth is MSM can’t talk about it, the middle east went to the dogs under Hillary’s watch. I don’t see Kerry doing any better, he is hiding on his yacht. LOL!!!

  • Rafael J Godinez

    ABC is useless as a new org. Surprised anyone really watches those idiots anymore. And what’s so unusual about DOS lying? Diplomats are nothing more than professional lyars.
