Obama picks openly gay lawyer for ambassadorship
AP/Yahoo ^ | 10-7-09 | PHILIP ELLIOTT

Posted on 10/07/2009 6:54:02 PM PDT by kingattax

WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama said Wednesday he planned to nominate an openly gay lawyer as the U.S. ambassador to New Zealand and Samoa.

If confirmed by the Senate, David Huebner would become the third openly gay ambassador in U.S. history and the first pick by this administration. In a statement released from the White House, Obama said he looked forward to working with Huebner and is confident he will represent the United States well in the Pacific region.

Yet another “in your face” from the ‘RAT “messiah”. He hates this country.

At least those regions won’t care if he’s a sodomite. It’s a smaller gaffe than when he tried to push three pro-aborts on the Vatican.

I wonder how the NZ and Samoans feel about this?

Yep, Obama felt that we were so important they sent a fudgepacker to represent the US....

Barry is making a laughing stock out of us and his appointments of all these gays and gay advocates is nothing more than politics, which again, is arguably problematic in varying areas of foreign policy, diplomacy, etc.

At some point do we begin to ask if our dear leader is on the down low?

We got it already he’s a sympathizer with those who live an alternative lifestyle.

Meh.
Who cares about his openly gay appointments.
It is his openly communist, openly stupid, openly corrupt, openly America-hating (etc.) ones that I have a problem with.

I think we have to stop letting the press use the sanitizing (in so many ways) term “gay”.

Let’s just be honest and say “man who likes to put his penis in another man’s poop chute, or likes another man’s penis in his poop chute.” Make Barney Frank deal with that visual every time he’s on camera anywhere.

“Yet another “in your face” from the ‘RAT “messiah”. He hates this country.”

Just like George Bush, another “in your face” president who appointed an open homosexual to an ambassadorial post (to Romania) and threw a big party for him and his “life partner”. Bush must have hated America too, right?

Won’t be allowed to set foot in Samoa. Homosexuality is considered sexual perversion and is illegal.

A lot of American's do, and the vast majority of conservatives and Christians ... do care.

Maybe you don't care about sending perverts as our diplomats to foreign countries as our United States representatives, but we do.

I simply can’t understand people who think that values and morality aren’t relevant in public policy and government. BJ Clinton was but one notable example displaying that “character does matter.” And there are too many others to count. Obama is adding to the list.

And care equally whether it’s a Republican or Democrat sending the person.

We’re talking about flaming open homos here. We’re not talking about someone around whom unprovable gossip swirls.

Sure. Not a problem. How big do you want it?

And since you don't like the font, maybe you could inform us in small black helvetica type why you don't think homosexual ambassadors are anything to be concerned or upset about.

The Maori are cannibals from way back.

Undoubtedly the faggot the muzzie in chief appointed is going over there with the intent of devouring the local populace before they do the same to him.

Look for Obama to visit his “friend” the Ambassador frequently, without Michele tagging along.

New Zealand is the perfect, secluded rendezvous spot for ‘O’ and his ‘butt buddy’ to get together.

The Independent State of Samoa used to be a New Zealand territory - New Zealand captured it from Germany in the First World War (the first military action by New Zealand troops after it became an independent nation) and after the war it became a New Zealand dependency under League of Nations and United Nations mandate until 1962. Since independence it has still maintained reasonably close contact with NZ, and so it’s not all that surprising for a US Ambassador to New Zealand to also be appointed to Samoa.

Now that’s funny! I wonder if Obama realizes when he reaches out like this to gays he further alienates Muslims, especially the militants.

I really don't think the Kiwis are really going to care that Our Man in Wellington is a "man's man."

The Brits have been sending their foppish ambassadors to bugger the locals for centuries now anyway...

This is all about fighting the churches and we can never lose sight of that! They want with government help to force gay marriage on churches.
