John Bolton, Receiving Award, Thanks Rogue Nations and Liberals By Kevin Mooney CNSNews.com Staff Writer May 04, 2007

(CNSNews.com) - Thank you, Sen. Lincoln Chafee, Sen. Chris Dodd, North Korea, Syria and Iran. You all helped make it possible.

That was the message delivered by former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton Thursday night as he accepted the 2007 Bradley Prize at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C.

Bolton was honored for his dedication to the principles of the America's founding, including freedom and human liberty. The award carries a stipend of $250,000.

The Milwaukee-based Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation praised Bolton's articulate and unapologetic defense of American interests during his recess appointment as ambassador to the United Nations. "Steadfast in his defense of American interests, he represented this country with extraordinary principle, clarity, and patriotism," the foundation said.

Bolton, who is now a senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, represented U.S. interests at the United Nations from August 2005 to December 2006. His tenure was dominated by the crises over Iran's and North Korea's nuclear programs, and Bolton's firm, no-nonsense stance stirred passions on both sides of the political spectrum.

Those on the right who scorn the U.N. nevertheless appreciated Bolton's strong leadership, while those on the left who hold the U.N. in high esteem were generally critical. Bolton did manage to win over a few converts, including Sen. George Voinovich (R-Ohio), who initially opposed his nomination.

Sec. of State would be a good placement.

Thompson/Bolton ‘08...I’m getting serious now.

I posted the previous a couple of months ago as a joke, but now I am really getting serious.

I think he would make a killer Secretary of State.

“I think he would make a killer Secretary of State.”

That too would be an appropriate utilization of his talents, perhaps more so than VP.

Like President Hunter naming Bolton as his Secretary of State. WOW! A REAL SLAM DUNCAN!

I could get excited about the race to the White House if John Bolton was heading the ticket.

*sigh*

Bauer for Pres...I can see it now:

JB: “Senator Kerry, where are the FBI files?”

JK: “IIIIIIIIIIIIIII Serrrrrrrrrrrved in Viiiiiiietnammmm!”

JB: “I DON’T GIVE A ****! (SOCK!) WHERE ARE THE FILES?”

As someone who was painted by the senate RATs as being a big blue meanie, it looks to me like Bolton has a great sense of irony and humor.

The GOP should encourage Bolton to move to a small Midwestern state, say, Wyoming and then run for the Senate. We need a voice like his in the Senate.

You gotta love Bolton. He says exactly what me means, and means exactly what he says. Hilary does too, the main difference being that she does it behind closed doors.

Can you imagine the howls from the left over that. Nazi Pelosi and Jihad Harry would have their panties wound so tight, they'd have to fart through their ears.

I LOVE IT!!

I want him to be the Republican President in 2008. Does he have any plans to run (he’s exactly what we need).

I dunno... Bolton for VP doesn’t resonate with me as well as SoS, or NSA.

This is precisely why I’d keep any thoughts of appointing him a very closely held secret... inside my very own head, in fact, if I were the nominee.

A State Department with a backbone? What a concept!
