Obama’s Good Ol’ Boys

August 2, 2012

I know, I know…old blog post but happened across it today and was amazed that there was this article but no follow-up for the Obama Administration.  Despite promises to change how Washington works, Obama has actually perfected the game of giving political allies and donors key ambassadorships in countries like England, France, Japan, Spain, Finland, and Australia. And in the eyes of foreign service association, he’s become the worst abuser, putting political allies in 44 percent of the top 185 ambassadorial positions. By comparison, 30 percent of George W. Bush’s ambassadors were political appointees and 28 percent of Bill Clinton’s political allies and donors.  So – blame Bush all you like for cronyism but don’t forget to look to the present as well for the same abuse of office.
