Should have been clearer, I know that's why he's given him a position, more pondering on why he gave him the one he did. At least if he'd given him Secretary of Health and Human Services, he could have claimed he had experience relevant to the role.

The internal debate going on within the Trump transition team between choosing Romney or Giuliani for Secretary of State is both hilarious and a perfect analogy to Trump. With Romney, we have a perfectly capable man with a strong background in business and politics who conducts himself with the air of a statesman, and on the other hand we have a mouth breathing moron. So tough!

To be fair, the mouth breathing moron was by his side during the campaign, while mittens held a press conference to talk fudge.

While I understand the hesitation there, to go with a cheerleader instead of the appropriate person is childish though. If the guy who openly criticizes you is best (or at least better than your other options), you pick that guy. If they actually go with Romney, I'll have quite a bit more respect for Trump, but I'm not sure his delicate nature would allow someone who so publicly opposed him such an important appointment, regardless of his qualifications. Because I think he exhibits the tendencies of a spoiled baby sometimes.

Is Scott Baio getting a cabinet post?

Russia is very unhappy about the prospect of Romney as our Secretary of State. And we all know Turdnugget Jr. does not want to upset Turdnugget Sr.

And so it goes.

Now Petraeus is in the mix for State. Good to know that actually sharing, and not leaving open the possibility of someone stealing, classified information, is cool again.

Edit: Not to say I don't think Petraeus is a brilliant man, but the ridiculous amount of vitriol thrown at Clinton for the possibility of allowing someone to steal something that he freely gave away, and then suggesting he assume the very role that she had (and evidently disgraced in some people's eyes) is absolutely mind numbing.

Mitt won't be Secretary of State, we need John Bolton in that position IMO.

You want to bomb Iran?

Or do you simply recognize him from Fox News?
