Goldman Executive Named as Obama Adviser

Published: July 18, 2009

President Obama said Friday he would nominate Robert Hormats, a vice chairman of Goldman Sachs International, to a top economic position at the State Department. Mr. Hormats, 66, will be under secretary of state for economic, energy and agricultural affairs. He was deputy trade representative from 1979 through 1981 and held other posts at the State Department throughout his career. Hillary Rodham Clinton, the secretary of state, said in a speech on Wednesday that she hoped to make economic policy and trade a larger part of United States diplomacy.

In yo face, America. GS ROOLZ, citizens DROOL.

This is the fastest that any President in my lifetime could send me into a screaming rage. 5 month plus of illegal immoral unnecessary criminal wars and the news is that he hired a corrupt fraudster.
