To be fair, Sen. Max Baucus wasn’t an expert on healthcare either. That didn’t stop him from writing Obamacare. How’s that working out?

China is kind of an important country. It holds a massive share of our debt, it’s the rising rival in Asia, it may yet got to war with Japan over some islands that both countries claim. Or it could invade Taiwan. Too bad Obama couldn’t find someone to serve as our ambassador there who knows a little bit about the place.

Baucus is the second Obama ambassadorial nominee to turn in an embarrassing confirmation hearing performance this month. The president’s pick to represent America in Norway, George James Tsunis, revealed that he doesn’t really know the first thing about Norway in his hearing last week.

Maybe they can both learn on the job, as Barack Obama has been learning how to be an executive on the job since 2009. How’s that working out?

A few years ago National Review did a multi-page piece on Max Baucus.
In it, a tale was told about Max first running for office. He was quoted by multiple sources as asking : "Should I be a Republican or a Democrat ?"
Since the day I read that piece, I cannot look nor listen to that empty-headed vessel without laughing out-loud.

"Chinese People are just as proud just as we Americans are proud."

Good for them! I bet they all love their Mommies and Daddies too!

Shouldn't the Ambassador-Designate be appointed to American Embassy Sesame Street instead?

Whether Baucus knows anything about China isn't the point. The point is that Baucus is a loyal Obama lap dog who lost his cushy job due to Obamacare, and now needs another source of income. This is just one of the ways in which Obama is creating jobs for worthy upper class Americans who don't want to actually have to do any work.
