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?
