The White House signaled on Monday that President Bush may bypass the Senate and appoint John Bolton, his embattled nominee for U.N. ambassador, to the post temporarily as hope faded for a Senate vote on the nomination.
So, even if the Senate doesn’t advise we have him as U.N. Ambassador (they would vote if there was Republican support), we get John Bolton for two years anyway. By then, President Bush may have pulled us out of the United Nations.
In keeping with the previous posting, the White House’s response to the advice and consent of the Senate is “shove it.” We’ve arrived at government by caveat, which is the same thing as government by a single party, an extremist regime.
