  • Biden promised hiring the most qualified... right?

    Source: https://thehill.com/policy/energy-environment/527189-biden-selects-john-kerry-for-climate-czar



    President-elect Joe Biden on Monday named former Secretary of State John Kerry as special envoy to lead his administration’s efforts to fight climate change.

    Kerry will be the “climate czar” for the incoming administration, coordinating programs that are expected to stretch across multiple agencies while leading efforts at a White House that may need to look for avenues beyond Congress to advance climate priorities.

    Guess Kerry's PhD in climatology will come in handy, huh?

    Did he? I know he promised that his Cabinet will reflect the diversity of America, which led me to immediately think that for such important positions you should be picking the absolute best regardless of race, religion, sexual preference or what have you and not worry about filling quotas.

    As for Kerry...

    Back in the days when I knew a bunch of folks who served on various Congressional staffs, both Democrat and Republican, they tended to express their views towards other members of Congress quite openly. None, and I mean none, had anything to nice to say about Kerry. He was universally viewed as being, well, thick.

    One who served on Sen. Sam Nunn's staff for several years likened him to that one kid in your class that needed things explained to them over and over and still never grasped it. He said everyone in both parties would get exasperated because they constantly had to get Kerry to understand what was being talked about.

    Anywho... it does not look like he'll be a part of the Cabinet but rather something called a "Climate Envoy" so at least it looks like Biden's handlers realized that they shouldn't give him a real job

    I'm always still in trouble again

      Reading John Kerry's qualifications he did not have a PhD in Climatology, but he has a history of consulting with and following the scientific perspective of Climate Change.

            I'm less worried about who Biden will appoint than the appointment itself. Next we'll see a "Diversity Czar" or a "Hate Crime Agency", right next to the "Trump Reeducation Camp."

              So far the appointments I've heard about are white men and one white woman. Not a good start on the diversity front.

                This is disgusting and you should feel bad. Insert exclamation which won't get me moderated.

                    That was originally an anti-Trump cartoon. Do you feel the same when the Left does it?

                      It hasn't been Trump or any of his supporters who have been talking nostalgically about gulags and sending political opponents to reeducation camps.

                          Could of fooled me those are Trump's lines with his devoted admiration of Putin.

                            As I said said this is indeed Trump at his best without his orange coiffure!

                              What a disgusting question. Of course I do. Why is the right so obsessed with tribalism?
