Let’s face it, John Kerry has been a disaster as Secretary of State under Obama…two words can best describe his tenure: IRAN DEAL. He’s been the best lap dog for Obama’s horrible foreign policy with his support of the Iran Deal. That’s probably the biggest mistake of so many we could list here. We do need to mention the very bizarre occasion of Kerry flying James Taylor to France to sing “You’ve Got A Friend”. That was all we needed to know about John Kerry’s policy and thinking about terrorism.
Now he threatens to stay relevant after he’s gone but was he EVER relevant in the first place? We can safely say we won’t be listening to this disaster once he’s gone….
Secretary of State John Kerry vowed to play a significant role in what he expects will be “one hell of a debate” about the country in the next few years.
“I will not go quietly into the night,” Kerry told the Women’s Foreign Policy Group during a speech on Tuesday.
Kerry was paraphrasing a poem by Welsh poet Dylan Thomas. The poem’s refrain urges readers to “Rage, rage against the dying of the light.”
Kerry avoided mentioning Clinton or President-elect Trump by name, but made clear he lamented the Democratic nominee’s defeat “bitterly” while urging the audience to remain engaged in political fights during the Trump presidency.
“Eighty-five percent of job loss in the United States is due to technology, not trade,” Kerry said. “So we’re running around hearing people battle a dragon called trade when, in fact, it’s not the fundamental problem …
“You tell me how the economy of the United States is going to grow, if 95 percent of the world’s customers live in another country, but we’re going to start knee-jerkingly just closing off some of that because we’re blaming other people for things that people are unwilling to address more directly and more honestly.”
