Blogging for Bolton

In case you didn't already know, I am a big John Bolton supporter because he is determined to work in the United States' interests no matter what the rest of the world thinks.  He needs to be confirmed as the US Ambassador to the United Nations.

Check out today's Vent with Michelle Malkin which is all about supporting John Bolton.

Update: Check out this video of Neil Cavuto slamming the Democrats for trying to kill John Bolton's UN Ambassadorship:

Hat tip: Atlas Shrugs

Lorie adds: Michelle Malkin has a great roundup of efforts in support of Bolton including what I find most interesting. If the President were to make a second recess appointment of Bolton he would have to serve without pay. Michelle links to several bloggers discussing the idea of a fundraiser to pay Bolton's salary. Now that is the blogosphere in action.

Bolton is doing a great job in the U.N. Sorry, we're still a sovereign country, and we have our own interests to protect.

Diane:

Get as many people as you can to contact your Senators (Dems & Repubs & Independents) and tell them to vote for Bolton---give your reasons why.

And if your Senators won't vote for Bolton, ask them to let you know why not & who they think would be not just "good", but better for the job.

Scumbags on the left would rather US sends some kind of appeaser to the UN. Dems will only stand up to fight the GOP, very very seldom will they stand up for america's interests.

Personally, I dont see much value anymore in the UN, and would love to see it kicked out of the US.

Any dimwit yet talk about the UN's culture of corruption? We all know Klinton was the most corrupt president ever(ask his right hand man), maybe thats why he wants to work at the UN, to continue his corruptions.

Uhh....No they wouldn't Neal. All Bolton has succeeded in doing is pissing off everybody in the UN including our closest allies. The initiative to get economic sanctions going against Iran has faltered badly.

As UN ambassador, Bolton is a complete and total failure. It's time to show this amateur the door.

Blocking Bolton may be great political theater and entertainment, but it is collosally stupid. Democrats are falling over themselves making ridiculous choices for committee chairmen but this has bad written all over it.

hermie:

The UN is a corrupt institution filled by the most part, with representatives of corrupt, dictatorships.

The bureaucracy is unaccountable for its corruption, and it spends billions of dollars that cannot be traced back. The UN wants a major overhall of its facilities which even Donald Trump calls way overpriced.

The UN has done its part to keep conflicts going and to do nothing to stop them, other than strongly worded letters (if they even do that). Bosnia, Rwanda and Darfur are three of the most recent failures, which cost far more lives than the tsumami, and it was done in a thoroughly brutal manner. They failured to stop N Korea and Iran from getting nuke, but collected a Nobel for their non-work.

My 2 Cents:

I strongly support John Bolton. But does it really matter? Does the UN actually matter? Wouldn't we be better off with John Bolton in a more important position, such as Secretary of State? Ah, a man can dream...

engineer:

Barney, as usual you're an idiot. The Republicans may still control the Senate, but it is the Democrats who voted against cloture, thus not allowing a vote on Bolton's confirmation. But, of course you knew this. You just think everybody is as stupid as you are. Or is it that 'air' of superiority that liberals think they have over us 'dumb rednecks'?

Gianni. Funny how every thought you have is Rush Limbaugh's verbatim. Do you have any thoughts of your own? Maybe a unique opinion? Nah. Thought not.

Clinton the most corrupt president ever? Please document -and I mean clear documentation about how Clinton is really "the most corrupt president in our nation's history" based on reliable text with some historical perspective.

I'm betting you can't - and, instead, you'll just hurl another childish insult. Lets see if I'm right.

Hansel2,

"Clinton the most corrupt president ever? Please document -and I mean clear documentation about how Clinton is really "the most corrupt president in our nation's history" based on reliable text with some historical perspective."

Sorry,it's common knowledge to most educated and honest people. Why are 100 pages of the Barret report Court sealed? Kerry's records unavailable for public veiw?

You are a complete idiot for supporting the lying prick from the get go and know you must continue to lie for his stupid ass rather than admit you are wrong. You are a pathetic BJ Clinton turd shiner till the day you die. You are a sucker and a slave to those that suckered you. What a disgraceful existence.

engineeer:

Seeing that the Democrats voted against cloture on May 26, 2005 (56-42) and again on June 20, 2005 (54-38), the gang of 14 have nothing to do with Bolton not getting confirmed. It is the Democrats who refused to let him come to the floor for an up or down vote.

And it is the Democrats again who are refusing to let him come up for a vote.

BarneyG2000:

engineeer, the Pubs could use the nuclear option to force a vote, but the 7 Pubs from the gang of 14 would vote against it, so again it is the Pubs that are blocking the nomination.

And yes I know that the gang of 14 agreement was/is for only judicial appointments, but I believe that you could call the "Byrd" law in this case as well.

Lee:

Bolton has accomplished NOTHING besides garnering the loving admiration of conservatives who love the fact that he's accomplished NOTHING, thereby reinforcing their views that the participation of the U.S. in the U.N. is worthless.

It's Bolton who is worthless, put in place by a Republican administration determined to ignore the U.N. anyway.

Time for someone new. Flush the toilet on this blowhard.

Since Lincoln Chafee (R-RI)... (Below threshold)
Larkin:

Since Lincoln Chafee (R-RI) refuses to vote for Bolton his nomination can't be moved out of committee. You can't be sent to the floor for a nomination with a tie vote from a committee.

So, in fact, it's a Republican that is blocking Bolton right now.

If he did get to the floor the Dems would likely filibuster and I doubt there will be votes to invoke cloture.

But Bush knows all this so the question is what is he really trying to accomplish? I think he's just throwing a bone to all of you neocons who are embittered by the disaster of Iraq and suicidal because of last Tuesday's landslide elections.

Well, Rob, what a case you make here. Gee, how can I contest these two measly bits of info. You must be right. Because of this, Clinton IS the most corrupt president in history.

Idiot. Once again, an angry republican child-man substitutes his own opinion as reality.

By the way, we won and you lost last week. Your opinion is that of a small minority - and no amount of name-calling from a weak little homunculus like you will change that.

By the way, jhow? We won and you lost. Go ahead, throw some other useless, weak insult at me. You're still the antiquated loser in this equation.

Do I enjoy saying this? You bet - because you're just another arrogant fool who doesn't realise the train's passed.
