Kerry: "And now I will speak in English, because otherwise I would not be allowed to return back home."

A good joke or disgusting condescension? 



(I loathe Kerry, but I actually love hearing him French it up big time. Quelle accent!)

Frankly, I think he should pull a 'Franklin' and just stay there a couple of years. See if anyone notices.

This is the second "dumb Americans" comment in the past few days to a European audience.

Kerry may think that he's talking to an audience that knows "oh, there's good smart Americans & those stupid right-wingers", but actually those Europeans aren't all that smart either, and they just think that they're all just stupid Americans.

What sort of idiot diplomat runs down his own brand in front of a foreign audience? Kerry really is a douchebag of the highest order.

Frog: Le chose plus important c'est submit aux muzzies.

Kerry: Monsieur, vous avez parlez a mon coeur.

Perhaps he doesn't understand the purpose language serves and the value of a common language. Could he be one of the stupid Americans he alluded to earlier?

Maguro said...

Ah, another botched joke. Perhaps he should consider giving up comedy.

After Bob Woodward's most recent intimidation comments, Obama seems like a low rent Nixon. He deserves a SOS who is a low rent Haig.

In 2004, James Taranto of the WSJ (soon after a Bush adviser said Kerry "looks French") referred to John Kerry as a "haughty, French-looking Massachusetts Democrat" - and like his reference that the senator "served in Vietnam", he has used the phrase over and over. In his February 27, 2013 column (today), Taranto wrote"

"It's as if we suddenly described John Kerry as the haughty secretary of state who by the way served in Vietnam."

He didn't he really run us down as much as spout platitudes about 200+ years ago alliances against Britain and how much Voltaire and Rousseau influenced Franklin and Jefferson.

Is Kerry still traveling with his sommelier?

edutcher said...

He sounds like Johnny Carson doing a bad Chevalier.

Whatta maroon.

Michael K said...

I love France but they can be obtuse at times. Kerry is the worst Sec State in a half century. Hagel, however, will make him look good. Lew may even make him look honest.

ddh said...

Kerry is fluent, but his accent is amerloc comme l'oncle Sam.

wyo sis said...

He speaks French, that's an asset in France. He doesn't have that many assets. Let him enjoy.

elkh1 said...

Do we care any more about our so-called foreign policy?

EMD said...

If he broke into fluent Urdu, I would be more impressed.

Titus said...

Fab, so Boston and Euro.

You wouldn't hear a Senator from Alabama ever doing this. Because they are real America and also really dumb.

Ctmom4 said...

God, he is such a buffoon.

One that works for Obama. Duh.

bpm4532 said...

My-my. What a fine bunch of oafs and lackeys Obama is putting in key positions for his second term. We're going to be well prepared for a crisis!

Sorun said...

There's a difference between being a Euro ass-kisser and being a statesman. Kerry needs more training.

Moose said...

Can we call him a cunt yet?

Oh, Laurent, seeing your date tags reminded me of something more fun than l'affaires étrangères, because what do you have when you make your bûche de Noël in février and not in décembre like you should? Well, you get a bûche de février that's what you get. And it's not so bad with its cute petit meringue champignons, even with cake mix, if cuteness is your sort of thing. Tell Monsieur Kerry stop pulling the face, he can have some cake too, that wasn't me, I meant to say he sounds very nice.

Sam L. said...

Kerry still has the hat!

Hagar said...

John Kerry just is not very bright, and we can look for at least one bad gaffe every other week or so from him.

What's dangerous about this is that it reinforces the notion of stupid Americans that has been spread by the fact that they also twice elected a man who is still searching the internet for a Rosetta Stone course for Austrian.

Methadras said...

He is such a smug, effete, egotistical, cock-sucking prick. He's quickly inching his way up in my people-that-I-want-to-punch-in-the-face-so-hard-that-their-dead-ancestors-feel-it list.

AprilApple said...

Why does the obama admin feel it must act out a comedy routine where ever they go? Is this all done to please the church of jon stewart?

Yeah. Considering how well we did on September 11, 2013 it's going to be a long, scarey 4 years.

Barry Dauphin said...

When did Kerry learn how to speak English?

jr565 said...

How do you say "pretentious douche bag" in French?

CEO-MMP said...

Kerry: savez-vous qui je suis?

C'est Jean Kerry!

We all joke, but China is arming to the teeth even as Obama guts the armed services and draws down our nuclear deterrent to "parity" with the Pakistans of this world while Iran redoubles it's nuclear efforts and N. Korea threatens war plus is developing an ICBM nuclear EMT capability..

What could EVER possibly go wrong?

virgil xenophon said...

PS: But don't worry, because we have Top Men running this country. TOP MEN..

NotquiteunBuckley said...

Listening to "How To Win Friends..." again makes me understand that Kerry operates, and good on him.

I don't give a hoot or two in Hell or Hades.

When I do care, impotence will be the reason.

Basta! said...

His Wiki bio says that he spent many of his childhood summers at Les Essarts, a Forbes' family estate in St-Briac, Bretagne.

Oo la la!

Where he "became good friends with his first cousin Brice Lalonde, a future Socialist and Green Party leader in France, who ran for president of France in 1981."

Oddly (/sarc) it doesn't mention his recent noticeable plastic surgeries

Achilles said...

Right next to the Army definition of Blue Falcon there is a picture of John Kerry. He is a betrayer of the first order.

rsb said...

Pas mal.

Ruth Anne Adams said...

Althouse: Love the "SOS Kerry" tag. If it hadn't been for a few Swiftboat Veterans for Truth, it might've been a post-presidential SS Kerry.

But there still might be a dinghy named SS Obama.
