Sec. Kerry Says Greatest Foreign Policy Challenge is…Congress
It isn’t Islamic radicals slowly taking over Middle Eastern countries.
It isn’t North Korea saber rattling and threatening South Korea.
It isn’t a nuclear Iran.
Nope, according to our newly minted Secretary of State, the greatest foreign policy challenge is the United States Congress:
In prepared remarks for a speech at the University of Virginia, Kerry cites the adage that “we can’t be strong in the world unless we are strong at home.” He calls the budget impasse a threat.
The State Department has said automatic spending cuts would jeopardize $2.6 billion in aid, security assistance and other international programs.
Kerry says legislators need to avoid “senseless cuts.”
Otherwise, he says his credibility as a diplomat might be damaged.
Yeah, I laughed at that last line too.
