Barack Obama has picked Republican Jon Huntsman to serve as his China ambassador, in a move perceived by the GOP as 'smart'... and probably seen by the Democrats as 'absolutely brilliant'!
The grapevine has it that Huntsman is one of the front runners for the Republican nomination in 2012! What a great place to send your potential opposition - CHINA. Are you familiar with the old saying, "Out of sight, out of mind."? Royalty (and various other assorted Potentates) - such as HRH Barack Hussein Obama - have been exiling those who were threats to their power for thousands of years. True! If they couldn't have them killed, either by "unknown blackguards" (no pun intended), or accuse another politically dangerous foe of the crime, then they would simply dispatch them to a far off land... like CHINA.
I never said Obama wasn't smart... just that he's a post turtle, and that he doesn't have a clue about the depth of the water in which he is swimming. The problem is, that as he drowns in his own socialist ignorance, he will not let go of the country... and the USA will be drowned by him.
