Bush Shoves Bolton Up United Nations Assembly
Has President Bush fudged in packing John Bolton into the United Nations? Only time can tell, but the President has signaled a willingness to supersede the Senate confirmation process by making a recess appointment.
The President, in his confirmation speech, promised that he, Bolton, would ream out any vestiges of corruption at the UN and that Bolton would enter the UN without protection. "He's his own man," said the President.
The President then assured an anxious public that Bolton was clean, and would not pass fluid information that was not personally examined by Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.
After the appointment, President Bush briefly reminisced about how he always liked recess when he was a little tyke. Said the President, "You could run around all you want and didn't have to think or nuthin'."
For his part, a confident Bolton said he could "hold his own" and that the circumstances of his appointment would not affect his ability to make seminal changes in the UN.
The President, who has since departed for Crawford, Texas for a month-long vacation, said he was pleased with the Bolton appointment. "No doubt about it, John Bolton will enhance the image of the United States in a large way."
