Happy Birthday, Mr. President

Barack Obama turned 55 today. His approval rating is on the rise, his chosen successor is ahead in the polls, and he’s married to Michelle. Life is sweet for my fellow Leo. We haven’t posted a Happy Democrat photo for quite some time, so here we go:

Speaking of birthdays, WWL-TV morning news co-host Sally-Ann Roberts (Robin’s big sister) likes to sing Stevie Wonder’s Happy Birthday to viewers. In a running joke, her sardonic co-anchor Eric Paulsen concludes the singing with a muttered “to ya.” For some reason this always cracks me up. I’m dedicating it to POTUS today:

Republicans: We’ll Subpoena You, John Kerry!

They want to call him before Congress to explain how he does his job-type things!

The committee in February asked the State Department to turn over documents and communications related to the “key determination” that the oil pipeline would have an impact on climate change and the decision to cite “U.S. climate leadership” in the denial of the project.

In a letter to Secretary of State John Kerry, Oversight Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) and Rep. Cynthia Lummis (R-Wyo.), the chairwoman of the committee’s Interior subpanel, said they have yet to receive the documents and would “consider the use of the compulsory process” if State doesn’t turn them over by next week.

That’s cute.

Shorter Kerry: Why Should I Apologize When You’re The One Who Sucks?

Seriously: 

Kerry called the letter, which warned Iran that any deal signed by Obama and U.S. allies could be undone by a future president or Congress, “unprecedented.”

“It specifically inserts itself directly to the leader of another country, saying, ‘Don’t negotiate with these guys because we’re going to change this,’ which by the way is not only contrary to the Constitution with the respect to the executive’s right to negotiate, but it is incorrect because they cannot change an executive agreement,” Kerry said in an interview that aired on CBS’ Face the Nation.

Kerry said he will not apologize for the letter, pushed by freshman Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., when negotiations resume Sunday night in Switzerland with Iranian representatives.

“Not on your life,” Kerry said. “I’m not going to apologize for the … unconstitutional, un-thought-out action by somebody who’s been in the United Sates Senate for 60-something days,” he said, referring to Cotton. “That’s just inappropriate.”

That sound you just heard was Tom Cotton’s alleged balls being sucked back up into his body to protect them from this:

Happy Kerry Photo: He’s Just Toying With Me Now

BOYFRIEND. 

At the end of a wide-ranging interview airing Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” host Chuck Todd pressed Kerry, the 2004 Democratic presidential nominee, whether there was a scenario in which he would run again for president in 2016.

“I have no scenario whatsoever in my mind,” Kerry said. “I haven’t thought about it. As you can tell, pretty busy.”

When Todd asked, “is it a never say never?” Kerry replied: “Well, nobody says never. But I mean, I have no concept of it.”

Either that, or he’s just toying with Chuck Todd, which could only make me love him MORE.

Ted Cruz Should Suck It

God, his nonsense is exhausting:

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) on Monday called on John Kerry to resign after the U.S. secretary of state privately told important world leaders that Israel could become “an apartheid state” if it doesn’t make peace with the Palestinians soon, as reported by The Daily Beast on Sunday.

In a floor speech, Cruz accused his former Senate colleague of displaying a “shocking lack of sensitivity to the incendiary and damaging nature of his rhetoric.”

“Mr. President, it is my belief that Secretary Kerry has thus proven himself unsuitable for his position and that before any further harm is done to our alliance with Israel, he should offer President Obama his resignation and the President should accept it,” said Cruz, who was one of just 3 senators who voted against Kerry’s confirmation to his post last year.

I’m sorry, did John Kerry shut down the government for three weeks and get nothing he wanted out of the deal? Because until John Kerry does that, I think he can stay in his office and continue to say things that are largely true.
