Re: Bush Accepts Boltons Resignation

"Despite the support of a strong bipartisan majority of senators, Ambassdor Bolton's confirmation was blocked by a Democratic filibuster, and this is a clear example of the breakdown in the Senate confirmation process," she said. "Nominees deserve the opportunity for a clean up or down vote. Ambassador Bolton was never given that opportunity."

Totally. Our confirmation process has become a mockery of what was intended.

Re: Bush Accepts Boltons Resignation

Is anyone really surprised by this? I mean, he was a recess appointment to begin with.



But it would seem that the inner cabal at the white house is losing cohesion.

Its not a suprise but Bush was really trying to get him confirmed...despite all the opposition.

Re: Bush Accepts Boltons Resignation

Bolton was smart to resign.

I think it had little to do with Bush, and much more to do with the fact he knew the disgrace Congress would do him after a demo midterm win.

Both sides are guilty of this travesty.

Appointees are that, appointees. The confirmation is supposed to be about making sure the guy is competent...no more or less.

Instead they have lately become nasty political gaming.
