Bolton headed to U.N.

In a move that shouldn't surprise anyone if they know President Bush, John Bolton, the controversial U.N. nominee, was appointed on monday through a recess appointment by Bush to be the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations. The appointment will last until January 1997, at which time he is not expected to be confirmed. It seems a reckless move by the President, Bolton does not have support of Congress, or half the government in other words. But we should all know that President Bush is not one to back down, regardless of what is in the best interest of the country. It's a Texas thing, I know, I live here. Texas style pride you will not find in any other state, and President Bush is definitely a Texan. Outside the state it is certainly not the best quality to have, as we have seen in Washington. Nevertheless, he is the President and as such certain tools are available to him to circumvent the workings in Washington when he feels it is necessary. Is it good? Probably not, but the country had a chance to say no in November. Don't complain now that this is happening.
