Barack Obama has rewarded some of his most active campaign donors with plum jobs in foreign embassies, with the average amount raised by recent or
imminent appointees soaring to $1.8m per post, according to a Guardian analysis.
The practice is hardly a new feature of US politics, but career diplomats in Washington are increasingly alarmed at how it has grown. One former
ambassador described it as the selling of public office.
State Department veterans say motivations vary among political donors. "Some go to pleasant islands where the climate and residence are delightful,
others just want the title, like British people lust after peerages," said AFSA's Johnson.
"People think: gee, I really want to call myself ambassador, so I can go buy myself one. Others are perceived to want to just meet people, broaden
their contacts of future business contacts people who can help them in their day job."
Hmmm...I think the complete and utter corruption of the White House, the Congress and Senate has now reached such levels that I can´t smell the
stench anymore. I am immune!!!
I have truly stopped being afraid and learned to love the big machine and its evil overlord Warbama
His great wife, and first lady tells me that my children should stop eating ordinary food and instead eat yoghurt.
Well Marie Antoinette told the french ppl to eat cake when they were starving. In the meantime she was enjoying the lush gardens of the Versailles,
the great expensive banquettes and so on....
I realize now they were reborn in this funny pair, replaying the whole scenario on the expense of the US sheeple.
What do I care. I am a happy citizen. I am now officially an Obamabot. Obedient, compliant, and devoid of any dreams of a better tomorrow.
