To be fair, he hasn't started any wars in the Middle East yet, but there's still time until November (or January).

That's POUTS' responsibility, not Secretary of State. It says so right in Article II.

He's always been a moron Jesus freak asshole.  Foreign leaders laugh at him.

Not from lack of trying, I can tell you that.
/terrifying that we have to rely on Iran to be the cooler head

To be fair, that was the point.

Just this one guy? In this one position?

The entire administration, right down to the personal handlers, are hands down the dumbest farking idiots on the planet.

I have yet to see one person touted like "Hey, that guys pretty awesome". Nope. It's morons, all the way down.

Agreed. And in two years Thomas Friedman will say, "We need to revisit Republican ideals."

Republican uproar? Are you joking? It's party over EVERYTHING for the GOP. They're like a fraternity of crooked cops just protecting one another.

If Pompeo were a Democrat, Fox News and Nazi OAN would STILL be talking about it for half of every broadcast day.

To be fair, he has never loaded or unloaded in the white zone, but there's still time until November (or January).

On 9/11, when a plane was headed for the WH, the second in line to be president was a republican pedophile.

But he led a bible study group for conservative congressmen, so he was a good guy.

Apparently this opinion columnist has the memory of a goldfish.

Unless he means 'worst' exclusively as 'least competent', in which case I only question his intelligence and judgement on an even more fundamental level.

Donnie won't take the responsibility, so Pomp moved on that action.
 
2020-05-27 9:23:11 AM  
Don't forget that 'Focus on the Family' is his benefactor.  He's their worm in the higher echelons of the Federal government.  He works for them first, America second.
 
2020-05-27 9:26:13 AM  
Mike Pompeo is actually Alex Jones. Look at them.
 
2020-05-27 9:26:27 AM  
Anyone got a non-paywall link to just what the fark happened? When did we have a terrorist attack on US soil?

Heather Heyer's murder, multiple synagogue shootings and bombings...

Thomas Friedman's still garbage, though.
 
2020-05-27 9:31:48 AM  
What, the fat lisping sycophant coward isn't a good secretary of state? Who would have thought? I want him to come to the realization that he is in his position because he is weak and by extension weakens the country. I want to see the realization on his confused bloated face.

We have terrorist attacks on US soil all the time now.  But the terrorists are white nationalist d-bags so we don't do anything.

That's a bold assumption.

Pensacola NAS - 3 Killed by (yet another) Saudi National.

It didn't make much news coverage because there was a big wreck at the NASCAR race that weekend.

Say what you will about this administration, but it is consistently awful across the board.
 
2020-05-27 9:38:53 AM  
Boy I'm sure glad we still have the Patriot Act and have given unprecedented domestic intelligence gathering powers to our law enforcement.

Anyone with a shred of decency, accountability or competency saw what was going down and either got out quick or fired for doing their job. There are still good civil servants in employ but they're freaked and trying to remain invisible.

Consistency - time to drag out the old Emerson quote book "a foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds."

If they're so dumb, how did they get to be in charge?

They're not morons, they're evil.

I have a team investigating allegations that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo actually molested children and they can't believe what they're finding. Big news will be coming out soon!

Yeah, I'll still pick Condaleeza Rice.

There was also a Syrian national who was shot and killed trying to attack a Navy base in Texas the other day.

This genius shot the gate sentry right in her armored vest, so she was able to hit the emergency vehicle barrier.

I'm reposting this because everyone needs to know. I saw it on the internet. It must be true. Now, I'm not saying it's true. I'm just letting you know that a lot of people are saying it

Tillerson wasn't bad, the same way a Lego isn't bad - mostly just inert, but lord help you if you step on it at 3am. I guess it's mostly luck that nothing bad happened on his watch, because he'd have just stood and frowned at it like a half-melted and mute Josh Brolin.

Compared with actively bad (or negligent) Pompeo, war criminal Kissinger, Haig, JF Dulles (hello Operation Ajax, though the worst of that was enabled by his brother, so I guess ol' Johnnycakes only gets partial credit), Colin "What's a little white lie between UN allies?" Powell, Condi "The Biggest Threat is Rogue Nukes *9/11* Like I Said, The Biggest Threat is Terrorism" Rice, Tillerson rates about a "neutral".

// which is bad, since SecState should be a force for good
// so it's bad when a SecState has no effect
// Tillerson also contains potassium benzoate

Least competent for the job is the high bar that the Trump administration seems to strive for in every situation.

To be fair, he hasn't used baby brains for steak tartare.
 
2020-05-27 10:23:46 AM  
It's at least two terrorist attacks in the country. Funny how no one is paying attention.
 
2020-05-27 10:36:03 AM  
At least he hasn't left countries with open air slave markets.
 
2020-05-27 10:46:28 AM  
To be fair, he has not got an Ambassador killed and then lied about it being over a video.

Underage incest, opioids, gunfire and buggery?

I've been a State Dept contractor for three presidential administrations and five secretaries of state. As far as international relations go, he's probably not the worst. But as far as internal damage to both morale and accountability within the State Department, he is head and shoulders worse than any secretary of state that I'm familiar with for at least the last century. Utter garbage who stabs his ambassadors in the back in the service of the president's personal agenda and political furtherance.

FTFA: After the attack, investigators found evidence that 17 fellow Saudi students "had shared Islamist militant or anti-American material on social media, and others had possessed or shared child pornography. As a result, 21 cadets from Saudi Arabia were disenrolled from the training program and sent home."

WTF? Aren't these adults? How about instead of "sent home" we go with "prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law"?

Why are we coddling militant, anti-American, Saudi Arabian childporn enthusiasts?

They got student visas, so they were vetted properly. What's the issue here?

Yep. This is why I was more than a little upset when my Democratic Senator voted to confirm him.

fark you, Claire McCaskill, you collaborationist asshole. You're not missed.

"To be fair," he belongs to a party where the only crime anyone cares about is being on the other side.
