From CIR and Floyd Reports:
Is Torsella’s nomination as U.N. envoy an Obama bribe payoff? It sure looks like it

Try as it did, the Obama Administration was not able to arrange a primary free path to reelection for Arlen Spector in return for his defection to the Democrat Party in April 2009.
Spector’s return must have been engineered with some degree of certainty that Obama could deliver on his promise. Nevertheless two Democrats, Congressman Joe Sestak and private citizen Joseph Torsella, announced they would make primary runs against Spector.
Obama got rid of Torsella first. After a “sit down” with his old friend Governor “Fast Eddie” Rendell, the Pennsylvania businessman apparently took a deal.
Sestak, however, would not budge. He refused Obama’s offer stayed in and won the primary against Spector then lost the general election.
What became of Joe Torsella?
Last week after eighteen months we got an answer to the question of: what happened to Joe Torsella? He is Obama’s new nominee to the position of United Nations envoy.
This nomination to United Nations Envoy sure smells like a political payoff. The position is so unimportant it has remained vacant since Obama took office. While we are paying him, Torsella will be partying on Broadway for the next two years until we vote Obama out of office.
Joe Torsella is supposed to go to the U.N. to “reform” it. That would be a neat trick since he has not one minute of experience with the United Nations. But he’s a loyal Democrat and he obviously does what the Party tells him to do. What else matters?
This nomination once again reminds us that Obama has a total disregard for genuine credentials as a prerequisite for appointment in his Administration.
Last week when Torsella’s nomination was announced, the Philadelphia Daily News observed “[Rendell had]…recommended Joe [Torsella] to the White House for a number of positions…. after Torsella dropped out of the Senate race.”
Even the Democrat cheerleaders in the media smell a rat in this one.
Was Joe Torsella’s nomination the result of an “exhaustive nationwide” search for the best qualified candidate? You decide.
