What a douche-bag this "pseudo" ambassador Stroum turned out to be. This should be something that is looked at- don't let a stupid rookie who, prior to her appointment, had not been to Luxembourg, much less represent our country as it's Ambassador. This is Obama's fault too.. He LOVED her being a big fund raiser for him and as all presidents, not just Obama, gave her a plum job. However, Obama seems to have everythign crapped up he touches.. this is just another debacle. How about not letting ANYONE be an ambassador unless they have been an under-ambassador first? Put a stop to these rich worthless folks having another way to line their pockets. This woman should be ashamed AND horse-whipped for her gravitous. And, she should be forced to pay back the money she wasted and used erroneously.
