President Bush has accepted the resignation of U.N. Ambassador John Bolton when his recess appointment expires, The Associated Press reports.
Very depressing news this Monday morning. We are losing a staunch, devoted defender of America’s interests at the U.N.
Reacting to the news, Eleanor Clift chuckled on Fox News that Bush is just “recognizing reality.”
If the White House thinks throwing in the towel and throwing Bolton overboard will appease the Dems or the U.N., it doesn’t know what reality is.
Unable to win Senate confirmation, U.N. Ambassador John Bolton will step down when his recess appointment expires soon, the White House said Monday.
Bolton’s nomination has languished in the Senate Foreign Relations Committee for more than a year, blocked by Democrats and several Republicans.
President Bush gave Bolton the job temporarily in August 2005, while Congress was in recess. But the appointment expires when Congress formally adjourns, no later than early January.
Reuters: “Bush planned to meet Bolton in the Oval Office on Monday afternoon.”
Allah: “Bad things happen when you lose your majority.” Yes, indeed.
