Bolton to be sworn-in today

As expected, President Bush appointed John Bolton as Ambassador to the United Nations today. Bolton will be sworn-in this afternoon and make his way to his new residence in New York City at the apartment in the Waldorf-Astoria. Michael Silence has more here. As I have written in the past, this appointment is long overdue, as Mr. Bolton is just what the United States needs in the U.N. at this present time. Bolton's appointment will last through the end of January, 2007.

To hear Democrats tell it, you would think that Bush had invented the recess appointment, that it hasn't be a part of government for centuries, that it wasn't part of the United States Constitution. Of course, that would be ignoring the 140 recess appointments performed by President Clinton, as compared to the 106 brought forward by President Bush.

That is a good point you make, Rob, about the recess appointment as a mechanism. All this stir is just ridiculous. The whining is deafening, from Ted Kennedy to Tom Harkin and all over the left side of the blogosphere.

Now, we must also brace ourselves for the Palmeiro fallout (I have a post today on this). By the time the MSM is done, we will all be assured that GWB was actually shooting Palmeiro up in the Rangers locker room.
