GOP determined to permanently bloc Ambassador to Turkey

Obama has nominated Foreign Service veteran Frank Ricciardone as Ambassador to Turkey. Ricciardone has served Clinton and Bush in Turkey, Egypt, Iraq and Afghanistan. GOP senators have decided to permanently block Ricciardone because they believe the career foreign service professional has been too close to host governments in past service.

Remember when Republicans believed in 'up or down' votes?

Remember when Republicans were people of honor?
