Bush slides Bolton in
This will earn us much respect on the world stage.
“This post is too important to leave vacant any longer, especially during a war and a vital debate about UN reform,” Bush said. He said Bolton had his complete confidence.
Bush put Bolton on the job in a recess appointment â€” an avenue available to the president when the Congress is in recess. Under the Constitution, a recess appointment during the lawmakers’ August break would last until a newly elected Congress takes office in January 2007.
