If he is able to look people straight in the face and lie

He fits in well with Rove, W, Cheney, Scooter, Rumsfeld

a real team player

Not like that Colin Powell who shitted out and resigned
or the last U N Ambassador, the Honorable John Danforth, he quit after a few months with this Administration.

Recess appointment for a perjurer (better hurry, W does have standards, but only if he gets convicted of a crime)

Recess appointment for a Judge who was a cross-burner sympathizer

This is how they restore "honor and dignity to the Whitehouse".?

State Dept admits Bolton gave inaccurate answers

Thu Jul 28, 2005 10:52 PM ET

By Vicki Allen and Saul Hudson

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The State Department reversed itself on Thursday night and acknowledged that President Bush's U.N. ambassador nominee gave Congress inaccurate information about an investigation he was involved in.

The acknowledgment came after the State Department had earlier insisted nominee John Bolton's "answer was truthful" when he said he had not been questioned or provided information to jury or government investigations in the past five years.

"When Mr. Bolton completed his form during the Senate confirmation process he did not recall being interviewed by the State Department inspector general. Therefore his form as submitted was inaccurate in this regard and he will correct the form," State Department spokesman Sean McCormack said.

Earlier, Sen. Joseph Biden of Delaware said he had information Bolton was interviewed as part of a State Department-CIA joint investigation on intelligence lapses that led to the Bush administration's pre-Iraq war claim that Iraq tried to buy uranium from Niger.

Biden, the top Democrat on the Foreign Relations Committee, said that should have been noted on the questionnaire, for which nominees swear out affidavits stating the information is true and accurate.

"It now appears that Mr. Bolton's answers may not meet that standard," Biden wrote in a letter to Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.

McCormack also said Bolton was not interviewed in special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald's investigation into who leaked the identity of CIA operative Valerie Plame. Earlier in the day, reporters questioned McCormack on whether Bolton testified before the federal grand jury investigating the case, as MSNBC reported last week.

'TOO LITTLE, TOO LATE'

In a letter to Bush, California Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer said Bolton's admission was "too little, too late" and urged Bush to withdraw the nomination.

"A recess appointment of a man who did not tell the truth to the (Senate Foreign Relations) committee and only admitted the truth when he was caught would send a horrible message," Boxer wrote.

"It seems unusual that Mr. Bolton would not remember his involvement in such a serious matter. In my mind, this raises more questions that need to be answered. I hope President Bush will not make the mistake of recess appointing Mr. Bolton," Biden said in response to the admission that Bolton's information was inaccurate.

Bolton is just another incentive for the rest of the world to get more powerful, so that they don't need to acknowledge us anymore. Hence, China and India's hyper-expansion.

The irony is that the more Bush tries to force our might, the increasingly irrelevant we become over the long run.

Look who had a recess appointment today? I think Bush wants to run a dictatorship. Why even have Congress vote to approve nominees of anything, when Bush just wants them to be a rubber stamp?

For some reason, I've felt really indifferent to Bolton and the whole confirmation process...What does the UN really do, anyway? I doubt it'll change anything, no matter who we appoint.

I guess 5 months was too little time for the Senate to vote. The dictatorship are those individuals who prevent votes in the first place.

If the point of approving nominees is to rubber stamp whatever the President and his ruling party wants, then why don't we just create a constitutional amendment to eliminate this red tape? I mean really.

FYI, the GOP held up dozens of judges during the Clinton era preventing a vote from ever occurring--far more than the number that the Democrats have held up during the Bush Administration.
