Obama selling US Ambassador positions to highest bidder!
"The Obama administration has expanded the dubious White House practice of rewarding campaign donors with positions as ambassadors to foreign countries, a report from The Guardian said Wednesday.

Citing its own estimates based on figures leaked to the New York Times, the Guardian conjectured that ten recent or imminent appointees to foreign embassy positions had raised on average $1.8 million for Obama’s election campaign coffers.

The report noted that the ten donors had raised more than $5 million in 2013 alone. In contrast, the comparable number for George Bush’s appointees in 2001 was only $800,000.

The practice has increased under Obama’s watch to such an extent that some officials within the State Department are sounding the alarm. Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Thomas Pickering told the Guardian that in essence, the White House was practicing “simony” by selling elite diplomatic positions to the highest bidder.

Besides the moral implications of such cronyism, Pickering also pointed out that the practice damages relationships with the foreign countries to which the donors are posted."

Re: Obama selling US Ambassador positions to highest bidder!
First, its a practice that has become corrupted and refined, back in the day, appointees were probably patriots. Secondly, it guarantees a golden parachute, there is no doubt that the what others do and were criticized heavily for, is practiced by the hypocritical (corporate and individual), classic tactic, knowing your own sin and weakness you can easily blameshift and transfer attention to others for similar behavior, and even worse, accuse those not guilty but lawful, who in examining the conscience and acts, fall prey to the manipulative, deceiver, liar, believing them to reasonable, especially as government officers, when that is so far from reality, that most ordinary folk cant wrap their head around it when confronted by it, and will still give the liar the benefit of the doubt.
I say this as an outside observer, US, your system is broken, terminally, whoever you get as next potus(if you actually do), will be even worse if msm has absolutely anything to do with the process, imo

Indeed. I thought this was going to be the president with the most open administration? I thought he was going to change how Washington works? I thought he was a great guy?
