JACKSON, Mississippi - President Barack Obama has nominated former Mississippi Governor Ray Mabus to be the secretary of the Navy.
The White House made the announcement in a statement Friday.
The 60-year-old Democrat campaigned extensively for Obama last year. He was governor of Mississippi from January 1988 to January 1992. He also served as U.S. ambassador to Saudi Arabia from 1994-96 under President Bill Clinton.

According to some, the death of one known as “Mabus” will herald some cataclysmic event. The actual mention of Mabus is restricted to C2, Q62 where we see Mabus described:
‘Mabus’ then will soon die, there will come
Of people and beasts a horrible rout:
Then suddenly one will see vengeance,
Hundred, hand, thirst, hunger when the comet will run.
Former ambassador to Saudi Arabia. Ahhh... I see.
Hmmm... Another strongly pro-Arab, anti-Israeli pick.
I was just googling that!
But everything about Obama is a Freak Show!
Great, another puking liberal taking over a military position. The SecDef has become a good dimocrat. Now with this puke, the Navy will probably get cut by half. They are going to down size us to the point that we will not be able to defend ourselves. People are going to die. It is that simple. We simply cannot afford 25% cuts during these times. Bows and arrows against AK47s, we lose.
Another member of the Council on Foreign Relations.
God help the Sailors and Marines.
From Navy Times:
“Mabus served in the Navy from 1970-72 as a surface warfare officer on the Newport, R.I.-based cruiser Little Rock. Before then, he was in the Naval ROTC while he was an undergraduate student at the University of Mississippi.”
Now THAT’s experience for ya.
God help us all.
Will the fleet command be renamed “CINCUS”?
got to love it...served as ambassador to saudi under CLINTON...and has a whole 2 years naval experience....i’m impressed....not...
Oh goodie, more back taxes to be uncovered and collected. At this rate we’ll have the deficit down to zero in no time.
He appointed him while he’s in Turkey giving speeches? “The White House” is the source? Who’s runnin’ this country ... I’m starting to think it isn’t Obama, he’s too busy out campaigning to become leader of the socialized world ...somebody “back home” is pulling the strings, I fear. We didn’t elect a president, we elected a cabal.
He’s won America now it’s time to capture *The World*!
Devil with the blue dress on!
This fool shouldn’t even be in charge of a bar of Ivory in a bath tub...
