Robert Ford to become first US ambassador to Damascus since 2005; opponents say move rewards Syrian regime for bad behavior. Talkbacks (30) WASHINGTON US President Barack Obama has bypassed the US Senate and directly appointed four new ambassadors, including Robert Ford, who will become the first US envoy to Syria since 2005.
Specific senators had blocked or refused to consider the confirmations of the nominees for various reasons, including questions about their qualifications. But in the most high-profile case, that of the new envoy to Syria, a number of senators objected because they believed sending an ambassador to the country would reward it for bad behavior.
"Making undeserved concessions to Syria tells the regime in Damascus that it can continue to pursue its dangerous agenda and not face any consequences from the US," Republican Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, the incoming chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, said in a statement. "That is the wrong message to be sending to a regime which continues to harm and threaten US interests and those of such critical allies as Israel."

Teaching tolerence for iSlam? This from a guy who talks of his Christian faith?
For Obama? Its the ..current policy from the white house.....the marginalization and destruction of America.
Obama , culturally never was an American as he carries many chips on his shoulder and as we see from his old culture at many levels. He feels for his Kenyan identity, he feels for his muslim identity, and he feels his angst against white and America....
Its all about death to America....death to the great satan!
from a previous posting, see second last paragraph...
His drive against America is demonstrated in his unfettered support of the OIC driven UN.
On top of it, Obama is a Muslim wanabe or Wahabe, I call him a ghazi.
One of the prettiest sounds on earth is the Muslim call to prayer at sunset.
Barack Hussein Obama as quoted by Nicholas D. Kristof in the New York Times - March 6, 2007
The FIRST thing Obama did as a newly elected Illinois State Senator was to attempt to declare a Muslim holiday. Obama sponsored Bill SR0110 in the 90th General Assembly to declare November 1, 1997 to be Islamic Community Center Day. It did not pass.
His biological father was a Muslim.
Because his biological father was a Muslim the Islam world thinks he is a Muslim.
His stepfather was a Muslim.
As a child Barry was enrolled in school as a Muslim in Jakarta Indonesia. An Indonesian Madrasa.
Barack Hussein Obamas first and middle names are Arabic Muslim names.
Barack was the name for Mohammads horse. Husein, enough said.
Obama recited the opening lines of the Muslim call to prayer, which includes a vow of fidelity to Islam, in flawless Arabic on a radio program. - Nikolos Kristoff, NYTs, 3-06-07 (***this one is a gottcha moment***)
On that same program he said he thinks the call to prayer is one of the prettiest sounds on earth.
Obama belonged to Rev. Wrights (a former Muslim) church for twenty years. Many congregants are Muslims.
Obamas said that the U.S. is one of the largest Muslim countries in the world.
Obama holds Muslim celebrations in the WH but canceled the National Day of Prayer.
President Obamas religious adviser, Eboo Patel, once deemed the United States the ideal place for the renewal of Islam.
Obama does not give gifts on Christmas.
Obama doesnt celebrate his birthday.
Obama falsely attributes Muslim participation in the founding of America.
Obama required that the cross be covered when he gave a speech at Notre Dame.
Christian symbol covered up during Obamas Georgetown speech
Obamas first major speech in office was a Muslim outreach speech in Cairo Egypt.
The American President told me in confidence that he is a Muslim, said Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit on Nile TV.
Obama gave strong support to the Cordoba House community center and mosque to be built at the Ground Zero site of Sep. 11, 2001 at a dinner celebrating the days end of the first day of Ramadan at the WH.
Obama tasked NASA with a mission of Muslim outreach.
Obama referred to his faith as my Muslim faith gaffe in an interview with George Stephanopolous.
Pushes Islamic freedom of religion but not Jewish or Christian freedoms. Several weeks ago he told Israel NOT to build settlements in East Jerusalem. But OK to build that Mosque at Ground Zero.
All this brings on a interesting question... how can America have any struggle against Islam, or protect herself with the most powerful muslim in the world sitting in the White House?
Be wary, wary aware ....and wary, wary afraid...get prepared for more creeping sharia...more than what is coming out of the White House today
Sadly, recess appointments are legal. Many, many Presidents used them.
Syria pours millions of illegal foreign money into Dhimmicrat coffers, so any appointee is basically a bag man.
I don’t argue with your premise and conclusions, but it’s important to be accurate.
The Indonesian school which Obama attended was not a madrassa, but rather Roman Catholic, Franciscus Assisi Primary School, in Jakarta.
He was registered as an Indonesian citizen, religion Islam.
“Sadly, recess appointments are legal. Many, many Presidents used them.”
but do they use them to change foreign policy by reestablishing relations with one of the worst terrorist countries, one that our Congress and past Presidents consistently condemned?
We all have different opinions.
My belief is he will regress to his adolescent framing of the world. His cultural identification is not American. Its Indonesian muslim and within that political indoctrination, it calls for a caliphate. Along the way in his development he was steeped in cold war politics by his father thus the Marxist leanings, so we will see both exhibited.
The most powerful man in the world will strive for those goals, but, In his mind, Islam will dominate.
Yep. That's how John Bolton became UN Ambassador. Bush recess-appointed him when the Senate stonewalled.
As Glen Beck pointed out several times, Congres is well on its way to making itself irrelevant.
nobama’s appointments tick me off. And I really, really dislike nobama.
But your addition to the article’s headline is way out of line. Nothing unconstitutional was done here. No laws were broken.
I didn’t express an opinion, other than that I agree with your points.
What I posted were just facts. Obama didn’t attend an islamic madrassa, but rather a Catholic school, where he was enrolled as a muslim.
It’s important that we keep our facts straight, because any exaggeration or error will be used by the left to discredit all the truth we tell.
To reinterate, I don’t have a different opinion from yours, just a correction to your list of evidence.
Won't Obama look like a fool (again) if, as expected, Syria is implicated in the assassination?
Where are the howls of protest from the MSM (I know, I know - we already know the answer to that one) and more importantly, where are the howls of protest from the Republicans in Congress? They should be all over this outrage.
(Constitution means nothing to the imposter)
Your addition to the title maybe correct but it has nothing to do with a recess appointment.
Exactly. Obama isn’t the first to use Recess appointments.
He has that right and the right to issue Executive Orders.
He has already destroyed the reputation of the Justice Department, EPA, ICE, ATF, Immigration & Naturalisation, FAA,TSA,How many others.
He is digging us a hole we may never get out of, He is so good at it he can do it in his 15 minutes he isn’t playing Golf or Basketball, or working out, He is so good he can screw us while on one of his many vacations.
It doesnt matter what he does: The Democrats and the Media back him. So why complain?
He is here for two more years. Hopefully he will hang himself , the leadership of the Republican party is giving him enough rope. In fact his rope stretches round the world already, and yet they give him more.
Aren’t recess appointments only valid until the end of the current congress? When Congress changes, for example, from the 111th congress to the 112th, don’t they have to face confirmation?
