    Kerry voices frustration with US political scene

    Kerry voices frustration with US political scene - Boston.com

    BOSTON—Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry unleashed a broadside Thursday against Republican "obstructionism," saying the GOP and its talk-show allies have created a "period of know-nothingism" in the country.

    With his party braced for defeats in the midterm elections, the 2004 Democratic presidential nominee told the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce that a Republican machine -- fueled by talk show hosts such as Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck -- has undermined progress and misled the public into believing Democrats created the country's current economic problems.

    Kerry singled out attacks on an energy deal he was negotiating with Republicans, which fell apart amid criticism of an emissions-trading program. Some 20 Senate candidates are now opposing the proposed deal in their campaigns.

    "It's absurd. We've lost our minds," said a clearly exasperated Kerry. "We're in a period of know-nothingism in the country, where truth and science and facts don't weigh in. It's all short-order, lowest common denominator, cheap-seat politics."
    Uh, didn't you pick John Edwards as your running mate in 2004? How's ole empty-headed Baby Daddy doing these days, John?

    If ever a no-nothing, empty-headed senator walked the halls of Congress, it was YOU, Senator Kerry.

    You and your party are doing EXACTLY what the American people vehemently oppose. That is why you're about to be thrown overboard, not because of petty obstructionism. We don't want what you're shoving down our throats.

    Wake up and listen to us, John. Might help.

    See that's his whole point. If you think that Kerry will listen to the "people" you one of the "know-nothings" he's talking about. All I can say is thank GOD he didn't win in 2004... I'll take as much of Obama as I can, but Kerry refines the reason people detest Congress. He's their poster boy.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
