In A Huff Over Mr. Bolton (No, Not the Singer)

Get the image of that long-haired love song singer out of your head. I'm talking about John Bolton, the newly appointed ambassador to the United Nations. The U.N.? That's another post in itself.

Anyway, so many people are in a huff about Prez Bush making this recess appointment today, but ol' George has a long way to go until he catches up with everyone's buddy-president, Bill Clinton.

Clinton made 140 recess appointments during his 8 years in office. Far less than the elder Bush, and also much less than the current leader of the free world.

Check out the details here ...

I will also say this. I get a kick out of how Teddy Kennedy is always able to come out of his drunken stupor long enough to state, once again, that the current Republican President -- whomever it may be at the time -- is "abusing their power."

We all know that unless Bush would've appointed Ted Kennedy himself as ambassador, Mr. Teddy would, of course, be offended, outraged, swashbuckled, etc. etc.

Relax people. No one had a problem with this when Clinton did it, just like no one had a problem when Clinton stated -- along with agreements from Kennedy and the rest of that bunch -- that there were WMD's in Iraq, and that Saddam was an imminent threat to the United States.

It wasn't until the Republican said it that it became a lie.

Folks. It was all based on the same intelligence data. In 1998, and again when Bush and the majority of the Congress agreed with him the second time around.


I'm out.
