“We have got to get away from this constant effort to destroy a presidency, whoever’s it is. It is tearing our country apart, and I think it is very, very dangerous for our democracy,” Kerry said on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”

Kerry was talking about the potential threat that cyber attacks pose to the country and the growing problem of politicizing these threats.

“This is an ongoing challenge to our country. It is not a Democrat or Republican problem. It has been building for a long period of time under President Bush. Prior to that, ever since we have had an Internet there have been escalating series of cyber attacks against corporations and against government entities,” Kerry said. “And so this is a problem for all of us as Americans and we have got to depoliticize it.”
