What do you expect from an American-bashing president?
From The Hill:
President Obama will nominate Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) to replace Hillary Clinton as the secretary of State on Friday, according to multiple reports.
The announcement is likely to come after the president and Kerry return from the National Cathedral in Washington, where they are slated to attend the funeral of Sen. Daniel Inouye (D-Hawaii).
According to the Boston Globe, the president had been holding Kerry’s nomination in the hope of announcing him alongside other national-security appointments. But continued issues with nominees for secretary of Defense and director of the CIA led him to proceed.
Kerry’s nomination became all but assured last week when United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice withdrew her name from consideration. Rice had drawn scrutiny from Senate Republicans, who suggested she might have deliberately misled the American public when she suggested that the September terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, might have stemmed from a protest over an anti-Islam YouTube video.
