Representatives Earl Blumenauer (D-OR) and James Walsh(R-NY) are developing a letter to other members of Congress proposing that Iowan Jim Leach be named U.N. ambassador.
Leach, a Republican and 30-year veteran of the House, was defeated last Tuesday.
I believe he's a nice man, but a nice of a man isn't what's needed to help clean up the U.N.
So, just say no to the RINO and keep a real man on the job.
John Bolton has the job, via a recess appointment, until the next Congress convenes.
He deserves to be confirmed by Congress.
I like what the Wall Street Journal had to say in an editorial....
Mr. Bolton has performed in exemplary fashion as a recess appointee these last two years, winning plaudits from everyone except those who admire Kofi Annan and Hugo Chavez. He has followed State Department orders and argued forcefully for U.S. policy.
The opposition to Mr. Bolton is based on nothing save vindictiveness. Democrats Chris Dodd and Joe Biden are trying to show that any political appointee who refuses to bend to their wishes can't be confirmed. They know other Democrats would vote to confirm Mr. Bolton if he made it to the Senate floor.
Having had one recess appointment, Mr. Bolton can't get another one and be paid. But he could retain his position and be paid if Mr. Bush names him to a non-confirmable post at State and then assigns him to the U.N. ambassador's duties.
