Obama's Wealthy Ambassadors

Apparently, you dont need an experience or education to become America's ambassadors anymore. All you need is money, lots of money. Is this what he calls Hope and Change? Well, isnt this what Illinois governor, blogojecich, was kind of accused of and was removed from office?well kind of, dont you think? Outrageous! please read ABC's report:
19 Ambassador Nominees Bundled $4.8 Million for President's Campaign.
"If all goes according to plan, Colorado businessman Vinai Thummalapally will soon be moving to a Central American tourist paradise to be Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the United States of America to Belize."
"Of course, friendship only goes so far in the world of ambassadorships. It's Thummalapally's fundraising for -- not partying with -- President Obama that is more characteristic of his fellow ambassador nominees. The Coloradan bundled between $100,000 and $200,000 for the Obama campaign and has personally contributed $13,375 to Mr. Obama's various campaigns since 1999. And according to Federal Election Commission records, Thummalapally's "not employed/student" children Vishal and Sharanya donated $2,300 and $2,275 to the president."
Will people ever get outraged by Obama's Chicago style presidency?
