Back­ing Bolton

The Washington Times Weekly - - National -

“The Democrats claim they are tired of the fierce par­ti­san­ship that has shaped the de­bate in Wash­ing­ton the last six years. They even want to play nice with the pres­i­dent. So, one of the first things they can do to prove their good in­ten­tions is to con­firm John Bolton as U.S. am­bas­sador to the United Na­tions,” the Chicago Sun-Times said Nov. 14 in an edi­to­rial.

“Bolton has done an ex­em­plary job at the U.N. He suc­ceeded in get­ting res­o­lu­tions to im­pose sanc­tions on North Korea; he bro­kered a Se­cu­rity Coun­cil res­o­lu­tion to end the war be­tween Is­rael and Hezbol­lah in Le­banon,” the news­pa­per said.

“If the Democrats are gen­uine about work­ing in a col­le­gial man­ner with the pres­i­dent, they will en­dorse Bolton: He has turned out to be far more co-oper­a­tive than di­vi­sive. He is, in fact, an able diplo­mat.”
