Fake Pro Baseball Player Could be Obama Secretary of State

By Debbie Schlussel
Well, at least he’s not as ugly and obnoxious as Madeleine Albright.
New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson–who recently shaved off his annoying goatee–wants to become Secretary of State and has the backing of several top Hispanic leaders, who are pushing for Obama to make an affirmative action pick and name Richardson the first Hispanic SecState.
Richardson, who made up a false claim that he was drafted by the Kansas City Athletics in 1966 to play in Major League Baseball (he wasn’t), is heavily lobbying for the job, and in a gesture to Hispanics, he may get it.


He does have experience as Clintonian U.N. Ambassador.
The guy is a liberal, but as far as the Middle East goes, he’s not bad on Israel, Iran, and terrorism issues. However, during his campaign for President, he told a Jewish group he’d hire James “F-ck the Jews” Baker as a Mid-East envoy, then backtracked when Jewish-Americans balked. As U.N. Ambassador, he vetoed anti-Israel resolutions. It’s just that his possible future boss is terrible on these issues, and he will have to do his bidding.
Yes, the bottom line is that it doesn’t matter what the fake pro baseball players views are. Obama–unlike the way Bush was led by Condi Clueless and Colin Powell on bullying Israel–will be running foreign policy. Richardson will represent those views. And on the Mid-East, we already know what they are: talking to Ahmadinejad, hanging with the Assads of Syria, and–as he’s already been doing for months–meeting with HAMAS. The axis of terror members are Obama’s new hoops buddies.
So will Richardson get the job? He got a very glowing plug in today’s Wall Street Journal.
Also vying for the position are John Kerry, Richard Holbrooke, Senator Richard Lugar, Senator Chuck Hagel, and Senator Hillary Clinton. Of those, Hagel is the most pan-Arabist and likely to pander to terrorists, though none of the choices are particularly spectacular.
The fake baseball player is actually the least noxious of all of these possible future stooges in Obama’s world appeasement plans.

I have a feeling it will not be Hagel or Lugar. Something in my gut tells me these two are likely to vote with the Democrats on breaking filibusters, especially those involving foreign policy issues. I understand that Congress does not have a lot of say so when to comes to foreign policy, but it does control the purse strings.

I guess he is just as fake as COBRAMA’s claim that he isn’t muslim.

To be more precise, it will be the internationalist Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) that will be running Obama’s foreign policy – Richardson, Kerry, Holbrooke, Hagel and Lugar are all CFR members. Clinton is not a CFR member, but she supports the CFR, and husband Bill is a CFR member.

I think George Soros’ International Crises Group (ICG)will be running a large part of the foreign policy. After all, he helped pay for both the ICG and Obama’s victory.
That having been said, US foreign policy has been run by the Iraq Study Group since the summer of 2006, which is when our foreign policy really got awful.

On “FOX and Friends” I saw them say that Colin Powell was on the short list as secretary of defense. This makes his opportunism (when he endorsed Obama at the last minute, when his presidency was in the bag) all the more obvious to me.
Remember this is the same guy who accepted a Jaguar from Prince Bandar. Powell is either extremely cynical, extremely clueless, or a combination of both.

Richard Holbrooke is an evil man that supports the Islamic jihad in the Balkans against the West. He could care less about the over one hundred churches destroyed by his friends, those KLA butchers. He could care less about the thousands of Christians and Jews massacred by the KLA and Muslims. He supported the Chechen Islamic jihad against the Russians, to the point of a Chechen terrorist leader being invited to the White House. He supported the largest ethnic cleansing in the Balkans, the Croatian ‘Storm’ against the 250,000 Serbs of the Krajina. He supported the return of the Croatian Fascists to the Balkans. May he rot in hell. He’s even involved in a business venture in Kosovo with his old butchering KLA buddies.

Richardson was my choice to lead the Democrats during the early primaries.
However, I’ve always thought that he let the North Koreans double-cross him. He never quite owned up to the fact that they ate his lunch. This is the stuff Neville Chamberlain was made of. That concerns me regardless of how much he supports Israel.

Richardson would fit right in with the crowd of idiots and traitors who would make up Odumbo’s regime. One of Richardson’s top priorities as governor of New Mexico was to consider pardoning Billy the Kid! A 127 year-old shooting of a murderer, thief and general outlaw by a county sheriff was this moron’s top priority??? An idiot like that would fit in perfectly with the other creeps, cretins, communists and clueless fools that Odumbo will surround himself with.

Who ever it is will be lame. Who ever gets the job will be holding the door & runnin’ out for hotdogs & pop to please every despot invited to the White House.
I’ts gonna get ugly…I’m movin’ to Alaska.

Another baseball fake. These liar’s are just not good enough. I’ve ran in to dozens of these people before. Ask them: Where they played, who their coach was, what year and in what league did they play in? They say,”Ummm, Ummm, Ummm”. No way, no how. They are not going on my team, I want to win not loose.
