Obama Snubs Britain Again With Crony Ambassador Susman

louis-susmanFORGET the special relationship. It’s over. Having given us European heathen an iPod and some moving pictures (that don’t move) and beads, Obama now gives us Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary Louis Susman.

The current holder of the position of Ambassador to the Court of St James’s is Robert Tuttle, a Beverly Hills car-dealer who raised at least $100,000 for George Bush’s election campaign.

But Obama is all about change. So no more cronyism.

Susman is 71. He was a vice-president of Citigroup until he retired in February. And he is – get this – a financial backer of the Democrats.Yeah, the US ambassador to the UK is a retired banker.

Chicago Sun-Times columnist Carol Marin opined:

“If you want to be president of the United States, he is the one you want to call before you even talk it over with your own mother.”

The Chicago Tribune nicknamed him the “vacuum cleaner” for his prowess in hoovering up canapes at parties. No, only joking – the nickname is for Susman’s ability to hoover up money at those collection plate dinners.

Susman – who lives in Obama’s Chicago – gathered $500,000 for Obama’s campaign.

Soon Susman will be living in a big house by London’s Regent’s Park, learning all about diplomacy as he counts the geese…
