JOHN BOLTON’S PRESIDENTIAL TEST
His observations come at a critical time. For U.S. Ambassador John Bolton has determined the five fundamental questions for voters to ask presidential candidates who present themselves to the public as securityminded warriors in a dangerous world. It’s all part of the “Bolton Test.” And the questions are (drum roll, please):
What is America’s proper place in the world? How does U.S. foreign policy affect domestic policy? What are the primary threats and opportunities America faces abroad? How should America respond to those threats and opportunities? What resources are required for our national defense?
Mr. Bolton is now running full page ads in newspapers in Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Nevada - all critical GOP primary states,
“The president’s principle job is to keep our country safe and be ready on day one,” says Mr. Bolton. “At a time when America’s international influence is declining at an ever-faster pace, these questions provide a solid foundation to encourage voters to probe the depth of understanding of their aspiring leaders.”
