He is emulating his boss who fucks up being potus every day, yet his boss is the subject of hero worship by the media, many minorities, the FSA and all the other morons in this country of which there is an endless supply.

Obama appoints based on race, gender, and political affiliation. This is not news.

Ambassador appointments are nothing more than political payoffs.  Look at John Tester for a good example.  His pivotal vote on Obamacare and his record of voting with the administration something like 97% of the time bought him an appointment as ambassador to China.

There are political appointments, and there are ones reserved for actual professionals.  Getting a competent, professional diplomat assigned as US ambassador to your country is not something to be proud of.

I know that there is no love for Romney in GD but I think anyone he would have appointed would have had a pretty good working knowledge of a country to make it past his first round of consideration.

Bet you're wrong.  As said above, Ambassadors to small friendly countries are generally pretty clueless.  The real work is done by the career Foreign Service Officer who is Chief of Mission.  The Ambassador goes to cocktail parties.  Same in every administration.

Those are both in Belgium, right?

Is that where the Dutch live?


LOL, but there actually are Dutch-speaking people in Belgium; it's divided between the French, German and Dutch-speakers.  Used to be part of the Netherlands, too.
