      Looking for Robert S. Ford on You Tube, I see numerous videos.... all sorts of videos, both true and false. But Robert S Ford testified very recently about chemical weapons in Syria, and his testimony was very measured and well-placed in the wording. He is the consummate diplomat. This is one of the videos I came across on You Tube while searching for the recent video posted on March 20 or 21, 2013. This...has nothing to do with
      His Excellency, Ambassador Robert S. Ford - but it is a good way to celebrate 25 signatures on this petition. <http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=39ln11ilb_w>

      I saw a lavishly produced video on You Tube
      with the title "Robert - S Ford, Mr. Scandal"
      or something like that. The video made
      no sense. If it was an invasion of diplomatic
      privilege, then the people who made this
      made a mistake. ANYONE who has anything
      worthwhile to offer the world today is
      slandered, defamed and knocked.
      Robert S Ford is the MOST QUALIFIED
      person for Secretary of State. He may not be
      the best connected in a political sense,
      but he IS the MOST QUALIFIED - the right
      person for the job of Secretary of State
      at this time. DO WHAT YOU CAN to help
      end the war in Syria, and get others to sign
      this petition - and I hope you have already signed!
      Thank you! - Scott Davis, December 29, 2012

      Maybe, just maybe the republicans won't oppose this one before it even gets started.

      ROBERT S. FORD moved one step closer to becoming Secretary of State today, in that Her Excellency Susan Rice withdrew her nomination to replace Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State. The Robert S. Ford for Secretary of State is a "little engine that could" cause - but for the good of America and the world, we hope this will succeed. He is best qualified to end the war in Syria, and to deal intelligently with its aftermath. Remember - Robert S. Ford speaks the King's English - and the Shayk's Arabic! WITH EQUAL FLUENCY! In any Government driven by any desire at all to hire and promote people on the basis of a long overlooked qualification called COMPETENCE, Robert S. Ford would have ALREADY been appointed to the top US diplomatic post under the authority of the President.
