Bush Backdoors Bolton

George Bush, the man quoted as saying, "If this were a dictatorship, it would be a heck of a lot easier, just so long as I'm the dictator", has once again shown how this tenet applies to the presidency that he stole, and has withheld, from the American people since 2000.

Not content with widespread Senate opposition to the appointment of John Bolton as US ambassador to the United Nations - a level of opposition that probably would have prevented Bolton's appointment - Bush has used the 'recess appointment' loophole, which allows the arbitrary appointment of individuals by the President during the Senate recess period, to dictatorially impose Bolton on the world.

Until his appointment to US Amabassador to the United Nations, John Bolton was the top arms official in the U.S. state department.

The Antagonist thinks Bush's surreptitious appointment of yet another 'yes' man to his ever-more-pervasive international cabal of cohorts speaks entirely for itself and demonstrates more clearly than ever the sort of 'democracy' that America is seeking to export to the world by all means necessary.
