Please refrain from calling people names. It's a violation of our rules and just makes for a bad environment. That goes for anyone else in this thread who's doing this as well.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s job running the State Department just got considerably more difficult. The entire senior level of management officials resigned Wednesday, part of an ongoing mass exodus of senior foreign service officers who don’t want to stick around for the Trump era.

Tillerson was actually inside the State Department’s headquarters in Foggy Bottom on Wednesday, taking meetings and getting the lay of the land. I reported Wednesday morning that the Trump team was narrowing its search for his No. 2, and that it was looking to replace the State Department’s long-serving undersecretary for management, Patrick Kennedy. Kennedy, who has been in that job for nine years, was actively involved in the transition and was angling to keep that job under Tillerson, three State Department officials told me.

Then suddenly on Wednesday afternoon, Kennedy and three of his top officials resigned unexpectedly, four State Department officials confirmed. Assistant Secretary of State for Administration Joyce Anne Barr, Assistant Secretary of State for Consular Affairs Michele Bond and Ambassador Gentry O. Smith, director of the Office of Foreign Missions, followed him out the door. All are career foreign service officers who have served under both Republican and Democratic administrations.
It hasn't been a full week. This is getting intense so fast.

I hope everyone can fully appreciate how much more dangerous this makes Rex. With logical minds and institutional knowledge gone and the department being handed to someone with little diplomatic experience, I can imagine any number of explosive situations occurring. With as little hyperbole as I can muster, this is truly and utterly terrifying.

He does have a point here.

As horrifying as it is, I hold a little hope that this sort of sh*t is what causes a massive priority shift with the Right. One thing is for sure, this spring and summer may get violent.

It'll either be a priority shift or the death of the GOP.

no he doesn't. if something doesn't fit his ideals he immediately jumps to being dismissive and arrogant. pretty funny coming from someone who still thinks communism is a good system.

I really hope it isn't the death of the GOP. As much as I generally disagree with Republicans, I can't help shake this feeling that a multi party system could be beneficial. It just sucks that the GOP has had its head up its ass for so long.

You genuinely don't see any similarity between not serving homosexuals and not serving another race?
