Yep, Jeb Bush must be dipping into the holiday liquor a bit early
Why would our President close our Embassy to the Vatican? Hopefully, it is not retribution for Catholic organizations opposing Obamacare.

2. The first statements released (when no one thought this was a big deal) mentioned security concerns.
This embassy is now combined with the embassy in Rome and a UN embassy post. Thought i'd throw that in there.

3. A low information asshat.
But in reality, the embassy’s move in 2015 will fulfill a plan developed during George W. Bush’s presidency, when a new building was acquired adjacent to the compound in Rome where the U.S. Embassy to Italy is located. A State Department official said in a statement that the move will save the U.S. $1.4 million a year in operational costs.
