Obama appoints wife of Univision owner to UN diplomatic post
The Miami Herald ^ | Wednesday, 09.26.12 | El Nuevo

Posted on 10/02/2012 7:24:24 AM PDT by justlittleoleme

President Barack Obama appointed Cheryl Saban, wife of the owner of Univision, as U.S. representative to the United Nations, according to reports from various news blogs.

According to the Politico blog, Haim Saban, owner of the television network, backed Hillary Clinton in 2008, but during the summer donated $1 million to groups supporting the campaigns of Democrats. And according to another blog in Spanish of Yahoo, the appointment of Cheryl Saban to the diplomatic post was made last Wednesday, the day before Obama appeared at a forum at the University of Miami hosted by Univision.

Makes you wonder, what else did Univision have to expose about Obama?

And all of a sudden, Univision will be all sweetness and light about Obama.

Anything to shut down the emerging truths about Fast and Furious. Univision is going to suddenly shift to the subject of immigration and how Obama is so loving and friendly to hispanics’ search for dignity and respect.

The community organizer need only find everyone’s price.

Faithful Rat voters get cell phones, food stamps, welfare, medical care, subsidized transportation, housing, etc.

Green campaign contributors get funding for their worthless products and attacks and regulations on their competitors.

Fellow filthy politicians and staff get their corruption ignored.

Media apparently can get their spouses appointments.

Holy crap. I just figured out how to get rich on this Administration: Using a high-profile media source, run bad stories about Obama.

In a normal world with a fair and balanced media, Holder would be long gone, Hillary would be gone for Benghazi and Obama would be on his way out.

Nixon resigned for a lot less... and nobody was killed.

Between these two disasters dozens have been killed, and the Obama regime has tried to use the crises to curtail both the 1st and 2nd amendments.

“The nightmare ends 11/6.”

I wonder what President Romney can do, in all honesty, to undo the damage done. Obama signed nearly 1000 executive orders and will be signing more as he’s walking out the door. You also wonder about pardons.. Mitt Romney will be given 60 days before Conservatives are tearing him apart and screaming “Off with his head!” because he hasn’t ended abortion on every planet in the universe. They will rip his flesh for not arresting every illegal in the country. Jobs? Yes. BUT, for me, we have to get our family members home from the Middle East as a matter of urgency. No more!

That is nice picture showing Obama leg padding.

I can spot 3 pads - 2 on the knees and a large square one on the left upper thigh. Can’t see right thigh because hands block view.

Also the left shoulder suit cut is made to puff up his upper body.

His right hand sandwiched between his legs is some sort of posture sign of something, but I dont have a clue. Maybe being protective.

This man is much thinner than he looks.

I had some interrogation training as a cop, back in the day, and I read his hand position as someone who is trying to hide something, or is lying about something and trying to cover up. There are probably some experts here who could articulate this better, but he is displaying a classic deception “tell”.

That’s a good point might be that.

His pants don’t drape his leg contour properly.

Could be armour or padding of some sorts.

“Obama signed nearly 1000 executive orders “

This is not true. He’s signed 139. This “1,000 EOs” is from an email, and is totally bogus! I got the email yesterday, and picked EO 11004, at random, to check. EO 11004 was signed by JFK, almost 50 years ago! There was a thread earlier today that showed the email. The thread was pulled. It’s bogus!

Scroll to the bottom for signature and date.

That’s why I’ve come to the conclusion that God has set this rocky road for us. NOTHING good has happened for the United States lately. It seems the 0bama regime thwarts every impending threat. God has turned his back on us. We’re in for tougher times ahead. Prepare. And I am by no means a devoutly religious person!

Exactly. The phone call to Saban after Obama's appearance probably went something like this:

White House Aide: "Mr. Saban?"
Saban: "Si?"
Aide: "The President regrets to inform you that the offer of a diplomatic post for your wife has been withdrawn." [click]

It was a bribe. It was REJECTED because the owner of Univision probably correctly perceives that if the Marxist Destroyer gets reelected, the net worth of all his holdings will take a 50% nose dive.

Saban is a Leftist Jew born in Israel who is ranked 5th of the top individual Democrat party donors in 2000 and gave 850,000 to Hillary in 2008

he has given small amounts to the GOP when it suits him

I doubt he had any direction in the interview questions given they were most pointed about amnesty and Obama’s failure to deliver..had they been about Israel then maybe

Given his pet political issue is Israel he may be growing dissatisfied with Obama.

Destroying American culture may be ok but handing Israel over to the wolves may not be palatable to him.

he drinks same bathwater as most media leftists..kill traditional American culture but have some tipping point somewhere over Israel...maybe

sorta shows where their loyalty lies

That should also suffice nicely.

I think maybe they are just trying to avoid his pant line
showing twiggy legs.

Trying to bulk him up and give a healthy look.

Guess there is nothing wrong with that. But saw some pics
a couple weeks ago and he looked sick and face was really
thin almost skull like.

The WH stopped/ reduced them posting them “black and white”
Presidential pics. You know the ones, standing oval office window
thinking, on the phone etc. They do them all the presidents, nostalgia
I guess.

Anyway Obama looks like night of the living dead in black and white pics.
