Doesn't mean I won't comment on his moves.
From the Associated Press: "Rudy Giuliani is the favorite to be secretary of state in Donald Trump's administration." Looks like Richard Grenell will be our UN ambassador.
Good. Rudy belongs in the Cabinet, but attorney general is a terrible fit. Powerful but rather stationary. Solicitor general gets to present cases to the Supreme Court and cool stuff like that.
Here is what Rudy brings as secretary of State.
Credibility. The hero of 9/11 is well-versed in the war against terrorists. He's cosmopolitan, which means he's likely to accept that there are non-radical Muslims (at last count around a billion of them). On the other hand, he
By the way, Trump already has Israel, Russia and Britain on the same page in fighting the Islamic State.
Competence. As a federal prosecutor, brought down Iranian oil runner Marc Rich, and then he put Mafia godfathers away. Turned New York City's crime rate around as mayor.
Not a Washington lifer. Sorry, John Bolton. Stick to your lobbying and Fox News appearances.
Won't go to Antarctica. No one can be as dumb as John Kerry.
OK, no one not named Al Gore.
Knows cyber security. Hillary's email jeopardized the country. For example, our enemies know the names of our spies.
Yankees fan. As Joe E. Brown said at the end of Some Like It Hot, nobody's perfect.
Knows Trump. Has his trust.
Richard Grenell knows the UN. Worked as spokesman for our UN contingency under Bush 43. He didn't last long as a Romney's foreign policy man in the 2012 election:
I have decided to resign from the Romney campaign as the Foreign Policy and National Security Spokesman. While I welcomed the challenge to confront President Obama’s foreign policy failures and weak leadership on the world stage, my ability to speak clearly and forcefully on the issues has been greatly diminished by the hyper-partisan discussion of personal issues that sometimes comes from a presidential campaign. I want to thank Governor Romney for his belief in me and my abilities and his clear message to me that being openly gay was a non-issue for him and his team.Democrats and the media will heap more scorn upon him than they would a straight white male because they must keep people in line.
I look forward to the day when color, sex, creed, et cetera, do not matter. But as long as we allow politicians to profit by dividing us along these lines, the divisions will remain.
"Trump the Press" skewers media experts who wrongly predicted Trump would lose the Republican nomination. I use my deadliest weapon: their own words. "Trump the Press" is available as a paperback, and on Kindle.
