fUNding for Bolton

With the threat of Iran looming large, as roxieamerica writes so deftly about, we need a man of John Bolton's character representing America's best interests, more than ever. He's quite simply the right man, in the right place, at the right time. Claudia Rosett considers him "the best UN ambassador the world has seen in about a quarter century". She and Hugh Hewitt are pulling for a 2nd recess appointment, in which case the American people themselves would need to fund his salary, directly. As Rosett deftly notes,
if you really care about trying to do some good in the world via the UN, stop sending your kids out to collect for UNICEF, and start sending them out to collect donations to keep John Bolton in office. Bolton, from everything I have seen, is far more honest and competent on every level than UNICEF, any of the other UN agencies, or most of the senior staff walking the halls of the UN, let alone many of the UN ambassadors whose limos cruise the streets of New York.
as Joe Biden has made it clear, Bolton's chance of confirmation "is going nowhere". And as for Lincoln Chafee....is there anything this man has ever done in the best interest of usefulness?
“The American people have spoken out against the president’s agenda on a number of fronts, and presumably one of those is on foreign policy. And at this late stage in my term, I’m not going to endorse something the American people have spoken out against.”
Why endorse any decision you have to make at all, then, Senator Chafee? After all, "the American people have spoken out against" you, kicking you to the curb by voting you out of office. Do you support that as well, Senator?

Democrats say this is a new era where they are willing to work WITH the White House. OK, so let the President have his pick for Ambassador to the UN.

But we're about to get a new lesson in compromise, for anyone who wasn't already clued in. Compromise will continue to be a one way street where we give in to the majority, just as we did when they were the minority.

I love the cartoon! I'm am opposed to putting some weak minded believe the BS limp man in the place of Bolton!!!!!!!!

This nation needs to handle Ahmadinejad from a point of brute strength. Democrats are getting scary!

Kudos on the response to Senator Chafee in your post. What an idiot he is!

Bolton is the best. I pray to God he is confirmed, Wordsmith; we need him.

I desperately want Bolton to continue as our ambassador.

Mike makes a good point. The Dems say this is a new era in Washington. If it is, then confirm Bolton.

The Democratic leadership today more closely resembles a politburo rather than the congress of a democratic republic.

Democrat + compromise = oxymoron.

Democrats’ idea of compromise:

When Dems are the minority, you agree with them…

When Dems are the majority, you get the Hell out of their face.

Chafee is an idiot and he was one "supposed Republican" I was glad to see kicked to the curb on election day. Don't let the door hit you on the way out.

As for Bolton someone brought up that I guess the President could do another recess appointment for him. I totally think Bush should do that and I hope he is brave enough to do so.

I doubt that the Senate will confirm Bolton.

In which case... I hope President Bush will quietly call Bolton back to Washington - and have absolutely nothing to do with the United Nation... Unless he can somehow veto its funding.
