Skip to comments.Bolton and his enemies - (Biden thwarting vote once again; Thursday vote in doubt)
Posted on 05/08/2005 10:35:41 PM PDT by CHARLITE
On Thursday, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee is scheduled to vote on President Bush's nomination of John Bolton to be ambassador to the United Nations. But that is now in doubt, as Sen. Joseph Biden, the panel's ranking Democrat, warns that Democrats might seek another delay in voting on this nomination that was originally scheduled for a vote three weeks ago.
The pretext for the Biden complaint is that the State Department hasn't provided evidence of how Mr. Bolton used intelligence information in his speeches.
Although Sen. John Kerry, another member of the Foreign Relations Committtee's anti-Bolton bloc, could not win the presidency by attacking Mr. Bush's work to depose Saddam Hussein, this line of attack has become part of the Democrats' foreign-policy template. Whether the rogue regime in question is in Saddam's Iraq or in North Korea, Iran, Syria or Cuba, the drill is to caricature the president, aided and abetted by people like Mr. Bolton, as a right-wing ideologue who constantly dismisses diplomatic opportunities to work with the likes of France, Germany, the International Atomic Energy Agency and Kofi Annan's United Nations to persuade the bad guys to change their ways.

I long for the day when there is an open season on those leftist Rat bassards.
'Plugs' Biden thinks he's actor John Forsythe in his prime. Biden is a lying bum.
Why are the REPUBLICANS allowing the Dems to do this?????
In Mr. Bolton's case, their hope is that, given enough time, they can mount enough pressure to persuade at least one soft Republican member of the foreign relations panel, particularly Sens. Lincoln Chafee of Rhode Island or Chuck Hagel of Nebraska, to vote against the president and his nominee. Advocacy groups on the left, such as George Soros' Open Society Institute and Citizens for Global Solutions (formerly the World Federalist Association) are running radio and television commercials in Rhode Island and Nebraska urging senators to oppose Mr. Bolton.
It just might work.
This is embarrassing. Just how much time does Biden need to build his case? I mean, Bolton is so evil! It should be obvious. He, um, well, he committed plagiarism! No, wait, that wasn't him.
Let's keep the pressure on. I just told Biden that I had three words for him: Ex-Senator Dashle. Reminded him that elections are no longer confined to states. We can fund his opposition.
Time for Karl Rove to the rescue. He needs a nuclear option on this one, too.
I'd just as soon piss in the wind as think he gives a rats ass what I or we think. Contact the Pub pussies!!!!!!!
Plagerize anything lately?
