The Middle East is on fire. The United States’ image abroad has so deteriorated that once-close allies are calling their alliance with the USA worthless. And central America is pointing a flood of underage refugees to the United States to swell our already overwhelming welfare roles.
But, don’t worry, John F. Kerry and Barack Obama have their eye on the ball.
“I am very proud of the progress that we are now making even in appointing LGBT ambassadors. I worked with the committee here at the State Department – with the D Committee, and I worked with the White House. And as a result, Ted Osius, sitting here, whom I’ve known a long time, and his family I know, will be the first openly LGBT officer nominated to serve as an ambassador in Asia. And on confirmation, he’s going to join five openly gay ambassadors who are now serving their country. I’m working hard to ensure that by the end of my tenure, we will have lesbian, bisexual, and transgender ambassadors in our ranks as well.”
The country is in the very best of hands.
