First Donald Rumsfeld went and now John Bolton has quit.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Facing opposition from key senators, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton will leave office in a matter of days, the White House announced on Monday.
Spokeswoman Dana Perino said President George W. Bush had reluctantly accepted Bolton’s decision to leave the U.N. post when the current session of the U.S. Congress ends, likely at the end of the week.
The recent election ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢”šÂ¬Ã…“thumpingÃƒÂ¢Ã¢”šÂ¬Ã‚Â is already bearing fruit. I guess it was obvious that Bolton wasn’t going to get the necessary Senate support but it doesn’t make the news any less sweet. This must be much-needed dose of reality for an increasingly deluded George Bush.
