Bush said that Bolton's nomination had been supported by a majority of the Senate but that "because of partisan delaying tactics by a handful of senators, John was unfairly denied the up-or-down vote that he deserves." Ah, the lies never stop. Guess that "majority" would be missing several Republicans. Also, 36 senators wrote a letter to GW stating Bolton lied when testifying and should not be appointed. But apparently 36% of the Senate equates to "a handful" to brilliant King George.
Oh, and I thought GW would at least wait until late Friday to appoint him, doing the dirty work at the pre-weekend, slow news period. That he didn't speaks volumes about his arrogance.
Also, just how seriously will Bolton be taken, with UN member countries fully aware that this guy is damaged goods and a 100% beneficiary of partisan favor? They're not stupid and they'll look for any chance they can to embarrass Bolton and make him a complete liability for the U.S. You dumb-ass Rush wingnuts who think he's going to "shake up the joint" and "kick some UN arse" have another thing coming.
