Government Waste

After her second tour of bleeding the taxpayer, Bush confidant Karen Hughes is resigning (again) to be with family (again) after failing at a high paid government job (again). God, to be a Bush crony! In the latest job to be mishandled by her, Hughes was given the responsibility to change the hearts and mind of Muslims toward the Unites States. Heck of a job Hughie. From what I can gather she made only one publicized trip to the region and that was a disaster. She may have made more trips and worked behind the scenes but her mission of "winning the hearts and minds of the Muslim World" clearly has failed miserably. Of course "success" in Bushworld only means being loyal to the imbecile, so she will be warmly embraced by the Republican establishment and undoubtedly financially rewarded in the future with another sweet job. Meanwhile, twice during the past 7 years, she has stuck you and I with the bill.

Long-time Bush adviser Karen Hughes will leave her post as undersecretary of state at the State Department in mid-December, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice announced Wednesday. Hughes served as undersecretary for public diplomacy and public affairs since her appointment to the post in March 2005, and was charged with running the State Department's campaign to "win the hearts and minds of the Muslim world."
In September of that year, Hughes traveled throughout the Middle East as part of what she dubbed a "listening tour" to repair America's image among Muslims. But it was a tough sell, and many Arabs criticized her for what they called her lack of understanding of the region. Rice praised Hughes' accomplishments in polishing the U.S. image, especially in the Muslim world, and thanked Hughes for her "wisdom and advice."
Hughes previously served for 18 months as the president's White House counselor,
and has been one Bush's closest advisers since his days as Texas' governor. CNN
