Good, finally we have a "Man" a "Veteran" and he's a "White Man", as Secretary of State. Now maybe the country will go somewhere on the National Stage. I am sick and tired of seeing Hillary and those new Eye Glasses trying to look like Sarah Palin. Crying seems to be in fashion, the Crocodile tears of Hillary and Kerry make me sick. Like Boehner, we need to recognize the disen-genuine for whom and what they are, Phonies ! But then again the ignorant public deserves the government they voted into power. So, to the Public, enjoy paying and paying and paying out, get your check books out because you haven't seen nothing yet :-) Sorry Duval, you wanted a "Black Man" to fill the "White Mans" post, as you most eloquently stated before appointing "MO" ! Sorry, I hope I don't sound as Racist as you Did, during your qualifying statement as to who had the most qualifications and skill sets to do the job, but then again I think Barney has something to say on this subject. You picked a Nowhere Man but then again I am sure the favor will be returned further down the political yellow brick road.
