Obama Appoints Clueless Ambassadors, Discredits Other Countries
In the latest blunder for an Obama administration ambassadorial nominee, prolific Democratic campaign fundraiser Noah Mamet admitted Thursday that he has never been to Argentina – the nation where he wants to represent U.S. interests as America's top diplomat.
The White House has tapped him to be the U.S. ambassador to the South American country.
'Mr. Mamet have you been to Argentina,' asked Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio during the Californian's confirmation hearing.
'I haven't had the opportunity yet to be there,' he admitted, ashen-faced.
'I've traveled pretty extensively around the world, but I haven't yet had the chance.'
Obama not only insults foreign government leaders, but he also discredits other ambassadors. In view of the limited intelligence of the people Obama appoints to be the U.S. ambassadors to other countries I just assume that other countries do the same. I look at ambassadors as politicians as as bad as politicians that appoint them.
