Blogs for Bolton

I’ve added the Blogs for Bolton splash to the sidebar. As you know, TBMD is a long time supporter of Ambassador Bolton.

Somehow, this guy made it through the State Department, and still has the quaint notion that he’s there to represent American interests, as defined by the President. He’s not there to serve the UN, he’s there to serve the American Taxpayer.

And if that weren’t amazing enough, he takes the UN seriously enough to want to reform it into an effective institution. Compare that to the UN’s present status as a place where kleptocrats and dictators strut and fret their hour upon the stage and then are heard no more. Well, at least we hope so.

It’s a measure of the Republican Senate’s unseriousness that a confirmation vote (along with a vote for Mitch McConnell as majority leader) wasn’t the price for the millions put into the Chafee primary.

See here, here, and here for previous TBMD Bolton posts.
