WASHINGTON (AP) There were all the trappings of a campaign endorsement rally: the cheering crowds, the American flags, and the sitting president heaping praise on a fellow Democrat. All that was missing was the campaign.
Three days after new Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julian Castro was sworn in, President Barack Obama paid a rare visit Thursday to the agency's colossal concrete headquarters to welcome Castro aboard. In gushing terms, Obama lavished admiration on the fresh-faced former mayor who Democrats are already eyeing as a potential vice presidential candidate in 2016.
"He's young, he's good-looking, he talks good. You can't let him down," Obama told HUD workers gathered for the presidential visit, who laughed and cheered so loudly that Obama declared them the "rowdiest employees" in the federal government.

KInd of like Cuomo, huh? now under investigation..
Americans haven’t elected a president from the northeast in over half a century for a reason; there is no reason to trust people from this area. I don’t expect any investigations of Democrats’ corruption to go anywhere anymore; if the IRS vote-suppression scheme wasn’t sufficient to land people in prison then I guess nothing will.
He talks good?
The President of the United States cannot even speak English well.
I just want to say NO MORE IVY LEAGUERS for PRESIDENT.
Why not? They both had Communist mothers.
I have heard that Castro’s approval ratings are so low that there is NO WAY HE COULD EVEN BE RE-ELECTED MAYOR.
He did a horrible job as mayor so Hussein Obama puts him in his cabinet. At least Obama is consistent in his idiot decisions.
Also, if he was a white guy, no way Obama would have visited.
I'll bet he'd like to go down on him
So, does that mean he does not speak Ebonics?
“He’s young, he’s good-looking, he talks good. You can’t let him down,” Obama told HUD worker....”
Another thing is that he is “all blow and no show” just like Obama....for he talks good.
What a hell of a criterion to place someone in office!

This is why government employment is often a resume-killer.
