The appointment of Susan Rice as National Security Advisor and the nomination of Samantha Power as Ambassador to the U.N. are part of President Barack Obama's endless quest to push his left-wing ideology, says media and political strategist Ron Christie.

"[It's] in your face, but most importantly not in the best interests of the United States," Christie, founder of Christie Strategies, told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

Story continues below.



"These two appointments only underscore that the president is more interested in his left-wing ideological bent than he is in trying to repair relations with some of our allies, Israel in particular, that he has strained.

"[He is] trying to frankly impose a far-wing, left-wing ideology down the throats of the American people that people are sick and tired of."

Rice, under fire for the handling of the Sept. 11th, 2012 attack on the American mission in Benghazi, Libya, is an appointment that's untouchable by Congress.

But Power, a former journalist and National Security Council aide, may have trouble being confirmed, Christie said.

"There are a number of senators – Republicans and Democrats – who look at this appointment and say is Samantha Power the most qualified person to be the United States ambassador to the United Nations? The answer is no" he said.

Christie is also unimpressed with the special October election New Jersey governor Chris Christie has ordered to fill the seat of the late Sen. Frank Lautenberg, instead of appointing a Republican to replace him.

"Chris Christie has to be the most shameless, self-opportunistic Republican politician in the United States," he said, referring to the fact the election will keep him off the same ballot as Newark Mayor Cory Booker, who plans to run for Lautenberg’s seat in 2014.

"Chris Christie is only in it for him, me, myself, and I and I'm just frankly sick of it," he said.
