One committee member, Sen. Christopher Dodd, D-Conn., was asked if he
thought Bolton should withdraw from consideration. "I would hope he would," Dodd
told CBS' "Face the Nation." "I think he's going to embarrass the president. I
think he's going to ... have a very difficult job serving if he's confirmed
narrowly by the Senate. He should withdraw or the president ought to withdraw
So what Dodd is saying is that unless Bolton has overwhelming support of the senate he won't do well as ambassador? Why is that? Since when does the senate affect the job performance of the U.N. Ambassador after he is installed?
The truth is Bolton's "America First" attitude is an anathema to the America-hating, U.N.-loving liberalcrats. Bolton's views and demeanor threaten the left's overall plan to emasculate the United States in foriegn affairs and suck up to that scandal-ridden corrupt collection of Useless Nitwits. So far his only sin is he yelled at an aide. This makes him unsuitable for U.N. Ambassador? Well I can see how it might make the French cry and run home but I don't see it as a fatal flaw. The left is really grasping at straws.
I am so tired of the politics of obstructionism. We The People elected a Repulican President, a Republican dominated, Senate and a Republican dominated House. It stands to reason that a Republican agenda should be promoted. And yet the Democrats feel the need to obstruct this agenda to preserve the madness they have passed into law over the past 40 years. Apparantly "majority rules" only applies until they are no longer the majority. It is sickening and childish.
Now I know it isn't all the Democrats fault concerning Bolton, I have a bone to pick with the Honorable George Voinavich. I was not at all pleased that he forced the delay of the confirmation after he didn't even bother to attend the two day hearing the week before. No wonder he has people taking him to task about it. I'll certainly remember Mr. Voinovich's actions come 2006. Why don't they just call a vote and get on with it. Then we can move on to important things like finally getting decent federal judges approved.
