Obama, The U.N. and Susan Rice

President-elect Barack Obama has nominated as his Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice.  This could potentially be the most troubling appointment announced so far.

Susan Rice is an affirmed internationalists.  She apparently believe that groups like the United Nations should influence, in fact, in some cases direct, U.S. policy.

Susan Rice is considered the most liberal of Mr. Obama’s “insiders.”

Mr. Obama has promised her full Cabinet rank and removal from the normal chain of command for an Ambassador to the U.N.  Rice will not have to answer to Secretary of State designate Hillary Clinton.

Susan Rice will phone directly to Barack Obama.

This is a prescription to change the U.S. dramatically.  And to change the world.

Barack Obama told supporters last October:  “I promise you. We won’t just win New Hampshire. We will win this election and, you and I together, we’re going to change the country and change the world.”

This was just one of his many lofty “world” predictions that made him the recipient of many “Messiah” jokes and ridicule.

But Mr. Obama’s appointment of Susan Rice indicates to Peace and Freedom that he is working toward his world and U.N. first agenda.

And all with very little involvement of the true checks and balances of American Democracy.  The Congress, after Ms. Rice is confirmed by the Senate, will be “out of the loop” on many issues.

For good or bad, President-elect Obama has signaled a move away from American world leadership and toward American acquiescence and subservience: to the United Nations.

But we’ll wait and see.  We could be wrong….
