Stroum Damage.

Remember way back in 2001 when The Left / Mainstream Media raised questions about George W. Bush appointing donors as Ambassadors? And in 2009 when they assured us Obama (pbuh) wouldn't do that?

As with so much we've been promised about Obama (pbuh), that assurance didn't exactly pan out:
As a supporter of presidential candidate Barack Obama, Cynthia Stroum was a superstar whose financial backing of the campaign landed her a plum diplomatic posting in Europe.

As America's ambassador to Luxembourg, the wealthy Seattle-based businesswoman was a disaster.

According to an internal State Department report released Thursday, less than a week after she quit, Stroum's management of the U.S. Embassy in the tiny country was abysmal. The report says her tenure of about one year was fraught with personality conflicts, verbal abuse and questionable expenditures on travel, wine and liquor.
Read the whole thing.

Will there be criticisms of Obama rewarding fat-cat donors by the same folks who criticized Bush? Don't hold your breath.
