""The UN's role is in effect a secret in middle America even as it is highlighted in the Middle East and other parts of the world," he said."
Nope its not a secret. We just don't like what the UN does. If there are any lingering doubts look to Africa and all of the UN "successes" there.
The UN is completely corrupt and lacks any perspective for the individual. All that matters to the UN is where they can steal money and the wishes of the latest dictator.
We're just darned tired of giving the UN $Millions and then have them vote against our interests most of the time. And, then there's all these corrupt........well, you get my drift.
I note how he went to great pains to mention "middle America."
Ah yes! The flyover states! Anyone in Middle America willing to lend the UN a vacant barn for its new HQ? I'm beginning to think that they've been in New York far too long.
I want us out of the U.N. for good. It does nothing for us. We end up having to police the world ourselves, at our expense, because the U.N. is nothing but a debating club and talks itself and everyone else to death. It is a useless organization, whose work could be taken up by private organizations for half the price. Get the U.S. out of it, Mr. Ambassador, and sell the U.N. property, which is worth a gazillion, to a private developer. The U.N. is nothing but a drain on our brains and our pocketbooks.
That U.N. sure did rise to the occasion when our U.S. Embassy in Iran was taken over and AMERICANS WERE HELD AS PRISONERS for 444 days.
The silence from the U.N. was deafening. Their inaction was worse.
Or, am I remembering wrong?
It's bad enough I have to wet-nurse Montgomery,I don't have to stand for that!
-George Patton, "Patton"
Kofi used to be a hot-dog cart vendor at McCallaster College in Minnesota.
Now, he's running the friggin UN. Bizzare.
Screw him and the UN.
I took the little UN tour when in New York last week. You would think that the UN had the answer to all the worlds problems...
* Center for American Progress aka CAP :
I'm reading Madam Hillary which is a more interesting book than I thought it would be.
Page 28 mentions that Hillary has organized and gotten funding (with the help of Soros and others) for several think tanks including the Center for American Progress. The Center has a 501(c)4 designation which permits the propoganda section to be more aggressively partisan.
Sara Wartell, a veteran of the Clinton administration, is the Center's chief operating officer. The Center focuses on hot button issues in Washington with an eye to influencing Congress, the public and the media through a sophisticated rapid response media campaign.
The rapid response media campaign is run by Debbie Berger, the daughter of Sandy Berger!

Bolten is a star performer in the UN, this whiny Brit lecturing about middle America is quite ridiculous. Atleast middle America has more class,culture and morals than the soccer mad British yobbos residing in their stinkin cities.
...The Center for American Progress and its sister organization, the American Progress Action Fund, are at the vanguard of liberal attempts to regain the initiative in the national political debate. Founded in 2003 with millions of dollars from donors hoping to more effectively counter the Bush White House and conservative groups, CAP relentlessly attacks conservatives and distributes talking points to its ideological allies.
Unfortunately, however, the group has also shown a repeated willingness to distort the facts in order to achieve its objectives. In a number of recent cases, CAP has twisted the words of its conservative opponents, misleading thousands of readers of its influential Progress Report newsletter. These tactics show that state of the art spin is increasingly indistinguishable from outright dishonesty.

Might I suggest an Indonesian chicken coop?
If you ask me, he is still pushing a bunch of wieners around, just gets better pay and perks.
And Mark Malloch Brown is said to be a pro-US reformer. We have very few friends in the UN nest of snakes.
