"The State Department report released Thursday said her 14 months in Luxembourg were fraught with personality conflicts, verbal abuse and questionable expenditures on travel, wine and liquor. It said things were so bad that some staff requested transfers to Iraq and Afghanistan." thats funny.

"The report also found that she inappropriately spent $2,400 on a trip to Switzerland; that the embassy bought $3,400 in liquor and wine to use up its entertainment budget even though such year-end sprees are barred; and that Stroum was reimbursed for buying a new queen-sized bed, even though she had been provided with a king-sized one."

....Heck of a job fired. No really, get out. Seriously, don't care how much you donated, your fired.

She is so typical of women who throw their wealth around and seek an appointment through contributions.

Hmmmm, a nasty, ugly, vile woman. check out her background and you won't be surprised about her behavior towards her employees.

That nastiness is INBRED.

And she's a sore loser! Rebuttal to the State Department in the same administration that appointed her?? It's probably even worse than what they reported. She needs to just fade away at this point. Money can't buy love -- at least not for very long!

Yep, another typical corrupt Obama crony, just like his entire cabinet and czar contingent of radicals, cronies, and communists.

We're dealing with corruption, radicalism, incompetence, and idicocy to the 10th power with the kenyan stooge -- a corrupt, incompetent hack, fake, phony, and fraud -- along with his entire administration, not one inch of which isn't rife with corruption.

Whose alliances and web of corruption, cronyism, collusion, and thuggery runs deep, and includes the likes of George Soros, Tony Rezko, Rashid Khalidi, Jeremiah Wright, Bill Ayers, Valerie Jarrett, Rahm Emanuel, David Axelrod, John Podesta, Franklin Raines, Jamie Gorelick, James Johnson, Andy Stern, Al Gore, Emil Jones, Allison Davis, Cecil Butler, Joyce, Woods, MediaMatters, ACORN, GIM, CCX, and a slew of former Goldman execs and lobbyists.

[continued, part 2 of 2]

Who's appointed a cabinet and cadre of czars comprised of avowed-communists, pro-abortion, anti-free-speech, anti-gun, anti-free market, anti-business, pro-illegal, wealth redistribution and healthcare-rationing advocates, union bosses, Goldman lobbyists, and inexperienced cronies and radicals including Van Jones, Katherine Sebelius, Mark Llloyd, Anita Dunn, Richard Holbrooke, Jeffrey Crowley, Kenneth Feinberg, Earl Devaney, Daniel Fried, John Brennan.....

...And Cass Sunstein (Regulatory Czar), the liberal activist judge who stated that "free speech needs to be limited for the common good", while also believing in "Explicit Consent" (harvesting human organs without family consent), and allowing animals to be represented in court, while banning all hunting.

...And union boss Ken Bloom (Manufacturing Czar), who stated that "we all know that the free market is nonsense. We kind of agree with Mao [Tse Tung] that political power comes largely from the barrel of a gun".

...And John Holdren (Science Czar) who believes in forced abortions, mass sterilizations and seizing babies from teen mothers.

...And Kevin Jennings (Safe School Czar), a homosexual and organizer of a group called Gay, Lesbian, Straight, and the Education Network who uses taxpayer funds to provide "Fisting Kits" to teenagers.

Also remember who appointed a radical La Raza activist to the SCOTUS, followed by the incompetent radical leftist Goldman crony Kagan, who believes that government has the right to dictate what Americans can eat, along with government censorship and believing that gun ownership is not a right!

How is it even possible to be a disaster as the ambassador to Luxembourg? That country is so small you can hold your breath and drive from one side of the country to the other without having to taking another breath.

re: AZBow. Exactly. This isn't about political appointments but WHO they appointed. Another bad decision by this WH.
