It was the latest example of Haley, a former South Carolina governor with no prior foreign policy experience, acting as a tough-talking bellwether of President Trump’s foreign policy.
Samantha Power, the woman who called Hillary 'a monster' was the 28th Ambassador to the UN, under Obama. One of her best writings, in my opinion, was 'A Problem from Hell' which I recommend to everyone. She was a journalist, and then served on a Human Rights program at Harvard where she was a professor. This far in our story, her total experience in foreign policy is living in Ireland and as a journalist. She is probably par for Obama, given his abject lack of experience. She went to work for Obama, then quit after her comment about Hillary, and then got back on and became a senior foreign policy expert, among the experts Obama had in the White House that served the US so well. She said Obama would always "call a spade a spade, and speak the truth about it" when it came to genocide (reference to Armenian) - and that went well, I believe we have made it clear the US believes it was genocide, yes?
Prior to Power was Rice. A woman who clearly was prepared for foreign policy matters - I won't bother relating the resume but will link to wikipedia. The point is, she began having no experience - she did research in graduate school on Zimbabwe and the UK peacekeeping. THAT got her into Dukakis' campaign where she had no experience and that transitioned into a job with Clinton, again, that position was based upon Zimbabwe and whatever peacekeeping the UK did. Then she went to "(NSC) from 1993 to 1997; as director for international organizations and peacekeeping from 1993 to 1995; and as special assistant to the president and senior director for African affairs from 1995 to 1997." Again, by 97 I am sure she was more aware internationally but she is clearly an example of someone who began with no international experience and she just ... plopped into each position through luck. And then during the Rwandan genocide, she was as active as a comatose patient - like the rest of the most experienced staff at State and the WH.
Now, she has no experience on the level Rice or Power did when they finally landed the job, but we saw how much of a mess their experience brought us - from N Africa to Rwanda to Syria and Iran ... chaos, death, destruction, and a significant lack of respect for the US in the world.
She also made a fool of herself and the office she held - she appeared on several Sunday news shows to defend the adminstration's later debunked claim that the Sept. 11, 2012 attacks on a U.S. consulate in Libya was triggered by an Internet video.
Rice also told ABC News in 2014 that Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl "served the United States with honor and distinction" and that he "wasn't simply a hostage; he was an American prisoner of war captured on the battlefield."
Bergdahl is currently facing court-martial on charges of desertion and misbehavior before the enemy for allegedly walking off his post in Afghanistan.
I think I will take someone with character and little experience to the 'experience' of Obama and his entourage.
Having values and character makes any job much easier. Let Haley have a go. And stop talking-down, condescending, speaking so poorly of her ... it is an ongoing effort to disparage everyone associated with Trump and this administration, no matter the cost, or how much of your soul you have to give up to attack the people with innuendo and lies.
