    Ok, this seems somewhat disturbing. Latest news bulletin:

    "The State Department’s entire senior management team just resigned"

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news...nt-team-just-resigned/?utm_term=.2fb7c7c7c90d

    and

    I understand the removal of political appointees. But these are all career officers. Is Trump having this sort of effect all across the government?

    Career politicians stay: Trump isn't draining the swamp.

    Career politicians leave: Trump is a bad leader.

    Tillerson was at the DoS yesterday. He probably asked for their resignation and they did the decent thing to do. US Foreign policy will change dramatically, there is no need to keep them.

    Billionaire FoT ("Friends of Trump") replace them: Trump is filling the swamp deeper than ever before.

    Really cool, to flush what represents decades of diplomacy experience. That 's exactly what we need right now, a State Dept run by an oil man and amateurs. It will be a windfall tornado. :oops:.

    better than what we had running it.

    EXACTLY! Just had that conversation with some friends the other day. Obama was not a leader and was in over his head. He was like that first-time manager that never leaves his office and thinks being a manager is the same as being a leader.

    And now we've elected a President who not only has no experience in government, and not only says he "knows more than the generals", he's going ahead and firing anyone who does have any experience in government.

    You can say that the entire federal government is corrupt. But if you fire the entire federal government, who are you going to find that is less corrupt? How are you going to find them fast enough to keep the country running?

    Your description is designed to mislead. The US is engaged, has been engaged regardless of the what Obama said.

    Oh yeah, those career politicos like Kerry and Clinton who had ZERO knowledge, never arrived at a single peace plan and you're applauding that junk.

    Tillerson has more real world experience that that whole damned State department combined.

    If nothing else, the expression "anyone can grow up and be President" has never been more true.
