Kerry: ‘Americans should be proud of Obama’s diplomacy’

Secretary of State John Kerry made headlines yesterday when he was picked up via a hot mic criticizing Israel. But, as The Blaze notes, his “finest” moment may have been his defense of Barack Obama’s foreign policy “accomplishments,” which also included a gratuitous jab at the man who beat Kerry in the 2004 presidential campaign.

In the video that follows, Lurch Kerry Lurch tells “Meet the Press” host David Gregory:

The fact is that in every fundamental issue of conflict today, the United States is in the center, leading, and trying to find an effort to make peace where peace is very difficult.

The American people ought to be proud in terms of what this president has done in terms of peaceful diplomatic engagement, rather than quick trigger, deploying troops, starting or engaging in a war of choice.
