Germany welcomes industrialist Timken as U.S. ambassador
BERLIN - The German government has expressed no concern that the Ohio industrialist nominated as U.S. ambassador to Berlin lacks diplomatic experience and is a big Republican donor.

President Bush has nominated William Robert "Tim" Timken Jr. for the prized diplomatic post. Timken served as Ohio finance co-chairman for the Bush-Cheney campaign in 2004 and was one of the elite class of "Rangers" who raised more than $200,000. Ohio proved to be the key state in winning Bush's re-election.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Jens Ploetner said the German government looks forward to working with Timken and was not concerned about his lack of experience or ties to the Republican Party.

I know it isnt earth shattering, but I do take offense to the way *ush runs things...always rewarding those who helped steal the election. We need help in Ohio to clean up the mess.

1. Timken closed the ohio factory and moved the works to china.

This was the factory that bush visited back in the days of lying about the "vibrant" manufacturing sector. The factory was closed about a month later. Timken is a very old company, I doubt that Jr. bastard ever worked a productive day in his miserable life.
