Bolton's Recess Elevation

Not that this is going to come as a surprise to anyone, but Bush made the recess appointment that he'd threatened to, elevating John "the UN needs to be dissolved," Bolton to the ambassadorship.

So...once again, Bush demonstrates his contempt for Congress by simply going around them. But, not content to let the appointment of an under-qualified thug go without comment, Bush said the following:
Because of partisan delaying tactics by a handful of senators, John was unfairly denied the up-or-down vote that he deserves...
Sure George, not like there weren't a few Republicans who had a problem with your appointment of man so patently undiplomatic, that even his colleagues questioned his nomination to the post.

No wonder your poll numbers are sinking. Perhaps you should go back and bury your head in the sand again.
