Just the big stick to take on the U.N.

August 06, 2005

The liberal cries against the installation of John Bolton as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations reflect the thinking of a band of political obstructionists who live in a non-real world.

The true facts are that the United Nations is so corrupt that this action forestalls a cry for withdrawal, which most certainly is the thinking of most Americans.

If Bolton is unsuccessful in making progress toward cleaning up that organization, then withdrawal will be an issue in the 2008 campaign. Bolton is the big stick that Teddy Roosevelt talked about. When all else fails, use it.
