Scared me there, for few seconds. My morning eyes haven't adjusted and I need coffee.

Hmmmm??? From his Wiki Bio: “In October 2011, Robert was named to Mitt Romney’s Foreign Policy and National Security Advisory Team as Co-Chair of the International Organizations Work Group.[12]”

Great.

Another appointment that will actively seek to undermine and give bad advice.

But he’s an evil racist sexual abuser who microwaves kittens!

Just figured I’d see if I could beat the Democrats to the punch. Probably not.

Don't lose hope. If history is any judge O'Brien won't be there long anyway. There's always the next time.

No reason, that is, except for the fact that so many traitorous assholes have been appointed since DJT was elected. But don’t get the wrong idea: IMHO he is still the best POTUS the country has had since General Washington!

The problem is that people view you by who you associate yourself with. Mittens seemed to always find the least qualified person to add to his associates. Being part of the Mittens cabal is not really a resume enhancer.

When I first saw that title, I thought it said “Robert O’Rourke.”

I nearly fell off my desk chair!
