Obama bundler raised $500,000 for the 2012 cycle.

"The next US ambassador to Norway, George Tsunis bundled $500,000 for President Obama in 2012, apparently knows nothing about Norway. Questioned by Senator John McCain about the anti-immigration Progress Party, which has now joined the ruling coalition, Tsunis had no idea what McCain was talking about. McCain asked for his thoughts; Tsunis replied, “You get some fringe elements that have a a microphone and spew their hatred. And I will tell you Norway has been very quick to denounce them.”

That is untrue. They are part of the ruling coalition, as McCain quickly pointed out.

snip

Tsunis also referred to Norway’s “president,” although the country has no president, since it is a constitutional monarchy."

Meh. Most ambassadors to small, friendly countries are rather clueless dudes that raised lots of cash for their POTUS and want the perks of the world political social life.

That's cool. Here in GD, we cannot tell the difference between The Netherlands and Denmark.

This.

This is not news, nor is it newsworthy.

If Congress wanted to talk to an expert on Norway, they have several in town and across the river, and plenty of career diplomats in Oslo.

But the issue is that someone who in theory represents our country can be bothered to skim the C.I.A.'s guidebook to the world.



Even if you don't respect yourself, your country, or your position; one should at least pretend to know your job.



This president 's cadre are nothing but children who missed out on any ass beatings as children.



Most ambassadors are not statesmen, but at least in the past they gave a damn about appearances.

That's just nasty.  You know how they make lutefisk?  Dip a fish in lye and nail it to a board.  After three weeks, you throw away the fish and eat the board.
