That shoe can't fall. He's out in a month if the Senate doesn't confirm him.

So unless Chafee throws Bush a bone and lets him out of committee, Bolton is gone.

Bolton is a recess appointment, which means he is out in January. No need to resign.

Bet on it. No way in hell he'll ever be confirmed.

Y'all can thank God that I'm not the President. After this election, I would have set up a mass resignation of the entire administration immediately after Pelosi becomes speaker--just hand her the football, and say "Lotsa luck, Nancy, and F*** YOU AMERICA!" If America wants liberalism that badly, by God, I say let them have as much of it as they can stand.

So help me, if Bush nominates some lame Bush-41 rehash for UN Amb., I will ... scream and punch my pillow really, really hard.

Ah, geez, things could not have been more bleak and you had to remind me of something I had not even thought of.

You are right. Bolton will be gone by the end of the year and the Dhimis will get to choose who they want--maybe even Bill?

Sadly it appears that W is in a conciliatory mood and will cave on just about everything, including this.

Think I need to have an adult beverage even if its only the middle of the day.

Is Chafee that much of a jerk to screw bush over and not let Chaffe out of committee? My guess is he is.

Bush needs to give him a different title, recess appoint him, and let him serve in the position. Or, name me as recess appointee, Bolton as my assistant, and I will step out of the way and let him do the job.

"Y'all can thank God that I'm not the President." I think I will. The President is still the sworn chief executive of the United States. I assume he'll continue to take his oath seriously and not succumb to childish temper tantrums.

I smell Carl Rove in the background: taking away the low-hanging fruit from the dems before they take power.

John Bolton is the single best figure in the Bush Administration. The only acceptable excuse for Bolton leaving is that he genuinely wants to leave -- and only if President Bush then nomimates someone just like him.

Hell, son, I just figured out that the America I thought I knew has been dead for almost 40 years. The corpse is still twitching, that's all.

The traitorous rabble known as "the American electorate" voted to stab the troops in the back for the second time in a generation. As for me and my house, we're getting out of the "defending America" business as rapidly as possible while staying within the letter of the law, and we're getting the hell away from major cities. Want to see the future? Reread Pat Frank's "Alas, Babylon."

There's still 2 months before the new Senate takes office.

That's two months to push Bolton to the floor, and see if the democrats filibuster to push him to the next senate (they probably will, but given he hasn't done so bad, maybe they don't need to play politics with him now that they won).

Anyway, he could be put in a non-confirmable slot and left as "acting" ambassador until we find another guy, maybe Ric Santorum, to do the job.

The Rats don't have anything on Bush other than he has to go with confirmations he can get with them in power. I'm sure the Rats have already handed Bush the list of who they want gone and who they will or won't confirm.

It will happen. He was a recess appointment and his term will be done when the newly elected Congress is in session.

If President Bush could not carry a simple UN Ambassador nomination, with a full Republican majority, then the results in the next few months will be well deserved.

We fought very hard for the Republican party since 1994, only to have it "pissed away" when they were granted the opportunity to make real changes.

Perhaps this is a good thing, as a reminder for the Republican party as to who they were working for.

Personally, if you want to know why I am so upset with the "party of limited government", simply visit your local major airport.

Anyone got a pic of W wearing a skirt?

It will get a lot of use in next couple of years to hide the fact that he does NOT have a "pair."

Bush "FIGHTING?" Never going to happen. Its going to worse than before with everyone sitting around singing Kumbaya and we will get more (didn't you see the news conference?) "LET'S ALL GO ALONG TO GITT ALONG."

There's nothing constructive to be done as long as the American electorate stabs our warriors in the back.

Last time this happened ended up with Saigon falling, and I wanted to die. I was in the ICU at the time, so it damn near happened.
