AP reporter asks State Dept. Spokesperson if Kerry had his spine removed over the weekend

Associated Press reporter Matt Lee doesn’t understand how Kerry can go from a full-throated advocacy of military action against Syria to saying that Obama seeking the approval of Congress is ‘courageous’. And as usual he doesn’t disappoint. He asks Psaki if Kerry and others had their spines removed over the weekend just so they could agree with Obama:

    Psssst…here’s a little secret…he never had one to begin with.

  • clevonlittle

    great question Matt………you’ve asked a few over the last six months or so that can’t be endearing you to the folks upstairs at State . But when rational people are asked to accept that 2+2=3 …………asking what gives is only natural . Kerry should resign as soon as practicable ………….few public servants have ever been hung out to dry as publicly and quickly as he was Saturday . ” Secretary of State John Kerry announced this morning that he is stepping down January 1 st due to the illness of his wife “………..that’s not so hard is it ?

  • Stehekin912

    One other thing..why do they bother to ask the talking mouthpieces anything at all?  They just babble some gobbledeegoop supporting whatever their master says (well, uh,  Matt, uh…) and does.

  • tinlizzieowner

    ‘Hanoi John’ had his spine removed when he got back from Viet Nam. He must have Alzheimer’s too, he seems to have forgotten this song. 😉 😉

  • SCarolina

    Barry doesn’t want to step on the inevitable land mine he laid with the red line comment aka “sorta-kinda threat”. He wants Congress along for the blast of egg on his face when his “shot over the bow” gets a huge laugh from the world.

    This calls for a SCOOP       —-

    Well Matt, “blah, blah, blahdee blah, blah, blah…………..

  • PressWatchusa Would they know what they’re seeking?

  • tinlizzieowner That sack couldn’t get outta Nam fast enough.

  • SisterMary

    So is it just me, or are all of these new press people for the president equally if not more annoying than the red-headed boy?

  • Laurel A

    Did he ever have one?

  • Malkiel_kol_hakavodlael

    Please department of state explain the authority that you claim the president has to proceed without congress…..  I have read unlike the department of state a document and I will add very important document called the Constitution of the United States and the document i consider less important WPA….   Either give the president authority to act unless a attack on the U.S.  is imminent or has occurred!!!!   congress must approve period…..   Frankly this current congress may not be that much of a hurdle and the start of spine removal surgery happened years ago and is ongoing….

  • No_BlahBlah

    tinlizzieowner I’m pretty sure the first time ole johnny heard some small arms fire he had a bad case of the squirts and passed his spine it was so intense.
    Good times! the traitorous bastard

    Well, if any of them ever have ’em drop they won’t know what they are.

    Yes, but how is this courageous?

    I guessed the song right before I linked to it. 
    Look at all those young people who had no idea their savior was going to be president their sixties and had he would start the greatest war ever.

  • poptoy1949

    Got to hand it to this guy…he sure put things in proper perspective.  Love it.  Although I do not think he will be invited to the White House any time soon I honestly don’t think he would go anyway.

  • Kerry doesn’t have a spine, that’s an empty ketchup bottle holding him up. Mama bear is close by just in case his bottle collapses. She’s got lots of them don’t you know?
    Mama bear must’ve been pretty desperate, to put up with a buffoon like him.
    I still don’t get i, t from throwing your military medals over the fence to become, Secretary of State?  Yeah, you expect me to follow you in battle? Yeah sure John, you go ahead and lead, I’ll catch up to you.

  • pnchacha5

    Just saw video/photos of the “rebels” executing captured Syrian soldiers with gunshots to the head.

    We are going to these guys ?????

  • Laurel A He doenn’t need one, he has mama bear the queen of tomatoes. LOL. 
    (I dated a potato queen once.)

  • tinlizzieowner Excellent man you remembered. You know how to pick ’em.:)

  • Samwise24

    What I wish he (or someone) would ask is his:
    “Why now is the president seeking the approval of congress, especially since he has made it clear several times that he is more than willing to go around congress or simply ignore them?”

  • Samwise24

    Matt Lee is a real piece of work (and I mean that in a good way)
    He’s known for asking questions like this.
    Check him out destroying Vistoria Nuland after Obama refused to call out Turkey’s prime minister for calling Israel a terrorist state:

  • Keyes

    He threw someone else’s medals. I think he still has his.

  • 12grace

    I love Matt Lee, he just tells it like it is…

  • subie201

    Matt Lee you are my hero!!!

  • subie201

    This is what the libs do best! They make Obama smell like Mr. Clean! None of the alphabet channels report the truth about Syria and who the rebels truly are! They cut and splice the news! Crooked, and deceitful cover-ups is what they have come to be known as.

  • E Lee Zimmerman

    Wow.  Did this idiot spokeswoman come right from the kegger to the podium?

  • MikeRios

    Typical Obama and Kerry. During the Vietnam War Kerry threw away a copy of the medal he received in made up combat as protest for war crimes that never happened; laying the blame of unverified war crimes on some military that he wasn’t a member of. (You know, “It was L.B.J’s fault.”)  Now Obama instead of shouldering responsibility for any lives lost or damages all of a sudden needs Congress’ approval  for something he didn’t approval of last week. This time he can’t blame Bush so he’ll just blame everybody else if it blows up in his face. So, Kerry blamed the other soldiers and Obama blames the other America. Just Democrat cowards acting like Democrats.

    Uh, uh, uh, uh – this is a public speaking person?

  • AdinaF

    We are witnessing – for the umpteenth time – an administration which is up to its neck in lies, obfuscations and anti-American behavior. So, for anyone to believe that they will  take principled stands for the right reasons, think again –

    Yup. He used his ‘connections’ to get out of there early. None of his (so called) Purple Heart wounds required much more than a bandage. Can I document all of this? Sure. Am I going to bother right now? No. 😉

    “Come on all you big, strong men. Uncle Sam needs your help again. He’s got himself in a hell of a jam, way down yonder in …..Syria”.
    We’re the ‘anti-establishment’ now, they won the government, schools and the media. Time to make them own their words.

    I can play it on my 12 string too. 😉 😉

  • tinlizzieowner

    You couldn’t ask for a better example of liberalism than ‘Hanoi John’ Kerry. No morals, no scruples and no memory.

  • tinlizzieowner

    that’s an easy one. He’s going to Congress in an attempt to cover his A$$ for the ‘Red Line’ remark. Just like he tried to do in Sweden. “I didn’t say that, the world did”.

  • tinlizzieowner

    That’s the way they do things over there, it doesn’t matter which ‘side’ you’re on. The only thing cheaper than life under Islam, is a woman.

  • tinlizzieowner

    Keyes NPC1 
    And you would be correct. He’s proud of his military service, (now that he can use it to advance his career).

  • Dr. Strangelove

    Matt, Matt, Matt. Kerry married two obscenely rich women to get where he is today. That should tell you all you need to know about spine.
    Anybody else getting a Laser Spine Institute ad on their page? LOL.

  • fireme

    As you can see, females can also support communism.

  • kong1967

    No, you brainless bitch, Obama does not have the authority to launch an attack without Congressional approval.  That 60 day leeway is only for when the President needs to act because the United States is under eminent threat.  Obama has yet to explain what our interests are there to begin with, let alone what threat he is heading off.  All McCain has said is that if we don’t believe we have national security interests in Syria then we don’t understand the situation, yet he never explained what it was.
    If you want to use the argument that we have to secure those chemical weapons because in the wrong hands they could be a threat to the United States, then you’re going to have to explain to me why Obama is only doing a limited strike.  Obama said the goal is not to remove Assad and not to destroy the chemical weapons.  In other words, it’s just to send a shot across the bow and to save face.
    WWIII so Obama can salvage his reputation?  NO !

  • Desjardins

    Spine removed?  That assumes he once had one, no evidence to support that.

  • Bob Yepper

    Dr. Strangelove  I know it is like this guy can’t date a thoudandair… In addition he is the most spineless crap. I have met vietnam vets that are in outrage over what he did in Vietnam he knew if he got so many p harts he would be out of country….

  • FredFerrett

    Once a gigolo always a gigolo……

  • pnchacha5

    ” They did cross the Red Line, it wasn’t my Red Line because I dont remember saying it was my Red Line so they must have crossed another  Red Line, militarily speaking. And that cannot be permitted, I mean crossing a Red Line without permission is just wrong and something needs to be done about it.
    And another thing, I think its time that the Rich pay their fair share of supporting military action against crossing a Red Line, I’m tired of the poor always having to pay for the military action when a Red Line is crossed somewhere and that needs to be changed so that the burden of penalizing those who cross a Red Line somewhere doesnt always fall on the downtrodden and disenfranchised not to mention those who are fighting for their voting rights like those who are already dead and those who are here illegally. I mean why you they have to pay for military action against those who cross a Red Line when iot isnt even our Red Line that was crossed.
     Illegally, I might add………..”

    Isn’t it ironic that these Washington morons are referring to Kerry as a “war veteran”?
    I have friends who have been and continue to be stationed in the Middle East (Baghdad, Afghanistan, etc.) and one in particular sent me pictures he had taken when Kerry made a surprise visit over there (in Baghdad – before Kerry became SecState)… Kerry sat alone in the chow hall… literally. He is hated by our military – pretty much across the board. Deservedly so.
    How appropriate that Obama selected this walking pile of feces to represent him (Obama) to the world.

  • emagnan1

    NPC1 You can tell that Kerry, aka, the lizard, still has his eyes on the Big Job.  He REALLY thinks he will be President when he grows up.

    kong1967 “No, you brainless bitch, Obama does not have the authority to launch an attack without Congressional approval. That 60 day leeway is only for when the President needs to act because the United States is under eminent threat.”
    Cut ’em some slack… it is difficult for the low-info citizen to discern what is Constitutionally appropriate when you have RINOs in the opposing party, like John McCain & Lindsey Graham, telling them that it is Constitutional and then push for broader strike.

  • sDee

    What happens when you let a Valley Girl be spokesman for the US.

    Indeed. He nevr had a spine in the first place to be removed. “Reporters” do nothing but fabricate a narrative then report on it.  Actual news and investigative reprting is a foreign concept.

  • USMC 64-68

    Kerry lost his spine more than 50 years ago – spineless, marxist democrat – traitor!

  • GregoryYates

    Times like this, I don’t understand why noone stands up and corrects on
    fallacies such as Obama having power to act without Congress. She needed
    to be publicly challenged on that point.

  • USMC 64-68

    I can think of 2 reasons, none good.  
    First, a lot of politicians don’t have a clue what the Constitution says, or even the War Powers Act.
    Second, those who do have the knowledge, don’t have the cojones to oppose the marxist Obummer.

  • USMC 64-68 GregoryYates That is why we have lawyers running this country.
    I forgot when it was, but a bunch of years ago the government made a statement regarding how many lawyer we have in the government, I was amazed by the numbers, and it has been very evident that no matter, how ‘right is right’ , there will  be another that  will try to prove ‘that right is wrong’. and more often than not ‘right wound up caving in’. Prime example are some of the  recent supreme court decisions .Most notorious case was Obama care job.

  • JMMartin You go John, a little more and you can collect your thirty pieces of silver, not that you need it, but we know you like the money.

  • 1972patriot kong1967  ‘some body spilled some coffee on my papers, I don’t see anything that says ’eminent’. So. we’ll go with what I say, o k?

  • Dr. Strangelove They must have been pretty desperate, maybe there is more to the missing spine than we can understand.

  • Samwise24 Got to blame anybody else but him self. Classic ‘Rush Theorem’.

  • USMC 64-68

    NPC1 USMC 64-68 GregoryYates  
    Amazing that a SCOTUS justice would make that decision, but how much more disgusting that it was the #1 guy.  Even more horrible, he showed absolutely no shame in his sell out of the Constitution and the people of America.
    Every now and then people argue w/ me that we’re not suffering under tyranny. – here’s just one of hundreds of examples where elites in power have replaced the rule of law.

  • USMC 64-68 NPC1 GregoryYates  And the saddest thing is that he was the # 1 guy that the people really, at the start, really believed and put their faith in.
