WASHINGTON (AP) - The opposition to President Barack Obama's nominee for U.S. ambassador to Norway is growing in Congress, with a group of House Democrats and Republicans asserting that George Tsunis' "embarrassing lack of knowledge" about the country makes him unqualified.

In a letter last week and a statement on Friday, lawmakers highlight Tsunis' comments about Norway at his Senate confirmation hearing in January and called on Obama to withdraw the nomination. The president nominated Tsunis, a New Yorker, Democratic fundraiser and chairman of Chartwell Hotels, to the post.
At his Foreign Relations Committee hearing, Tsunis bungled questions about Norway's political parties and spoke of Norway's president even though it is a constitutional monarchy.
"The answers provided by Mr. Tsunis clearly demonstrate that he is unqualified for this position and may damage an important international bond if confirmed," wrote the 32 lawmakers, including a half dozen Democrats, many from the Midwest, home to many Norwegian-Americans.

Tsunis' performance at his confirmation hearing did not give me confidence in his knowledge of Norway or his ability to be an effective ambassador."

Tsunis, founder and CEO of Chartwell Hotels, stumbled badly at that hearing in January, when asked about anti-immigrant sentiment in Norway. He also referred to Norway's "president," when, as a constitutional monarchy, that nation doesn't have a president.
The Norwegian press was insulted and outraged by Tsunis's responses. Many Norwegian-Americans, especially influential in the upper Midwest, apparently were equally upset.
With 55 Democratic votes in the Senate, Tsunis, assuming all Republicans vote against him, is now down to 52 votes if the remaining Democrats vote for him - not a foregone conclusion at this point.
The State Department, last time we checked, was still backing Tsunis for the post. Any more defections, though. . .
