Republicans and Democrats constantly argue over issues of the day, but there is one topic that both parties are united on–who and how we appoint people to become ambassadors to other nations in the world. As I recall, then candidate Barack Obama promised that if elected to the office of president, there would be an end to lobbyists having power in the government. He was going to “reform” the way politics is played in our nation. So, here is the record about recent people nominated to become an ambassador to another country:
Recently retired Senator Max Baucus: “I am no expert on China.” Now you know why he will become the ambassador to China.
George Tsunis: has never been to Norway and identified the Progress party as a fringe organization in the country. It is the ruling coalition which governs the nation.
Mr. Manet: he has never been to Argentina but why should that disqualify him from becoming an ambassador to that nation?
Robert Barber: he does know there is a nation called, Iceland, he does know that it is somewhere east of the United States, but he really has never been there. Two out of three must qualify for being an ambassador.
