Dems will fight to prevent Bolton's UN appointment

As you may recall, President Bush bypassed the Senate last year and installed Bolton as US Ambassador to the United Nations when lawmakers were on recess. Bolton was given a one year appointment that will expire on January 1st, 2007.

Why are the Democrats mounting a campaign to oust him? Sounds to me that the Democrat hatred of President Bush is ahead of common sense and good judgment.

Democratic Sen. Christopher Dodd of Connecticut on Sunday promised a bruising fight in the U.S. Senate against confirming John Bolton to be the country's ambassador to the United Nations. See: Dodd promised "Bruising Fight" over Bolton

The Democrats appear to have bought into Secretary-General of the United Nations Kofi A. Annan's style of running of the United Nations hook, line, and sinker.

Bravo to US Ambassador John Bolton for telling it like it is and representing United States interests. Remember not long ago The Bosun Locker blogged about Bolton's criticism of Deputy Secretary-General Mark Malloch Brown, UN BLASTS US, and warned that Brown’s inappropriate comments could undermine United States support.

"To have the deputy secretary-general criticize the United States in such a manner can only do grave harm to the United Nations ,,,, Even though the target of the speech was the United States, the victim, I fear, will be the United Nations," Bolton said. Source: Fox News

Bolton appears to be one of the few ambassadors willing to provide honest feedback to the United Nations organization. And to think that the Dems, liberals, and leftists on the other side of the aisle are going to make it difficult for Bolton’s official appointment. It does not make any sense to this blogger.

They (Democrats, liberals and leftists) continue to have conniptions about Bolton's blunt honesty. They claim that Bolton is loose cannon and is somehow irrational and inappropriate, something that this blogger has not seen.

It seems to me that during his brief tenure as the US Ambassador, Bolton has brought reality to the appeaser - apologizer - enabler organization, the United Nations. I can only hope that Bolton will be able to clean up the UN before his term runs out.

However, if it is up to Dodds and other liberal pundits, cleanup of the United Nations is not going to happen. For what??? The Democrats hatred of President Bush outweigh their common sense. The Democrat pundits will throw up whatever roadblock is necessary to block Bolton's appointed.

Ambassador Bolton reminds me of a true “Rough Rider;” when the going gets tough, the tough get going. He is a good man and an asset to have in the United Nations. It appears to me that the Democrats are becoming the enemies of truth, justice and freedom. As usual, they stand in the way of reform and will find themselves on the wrong side of history.
