George W. Bush pulled the ultimate spoiled child moment today…
Frustrated by Democrats and even a few Republicans, President Bush on Monday circumvented the Senate and appointed embattled nominee John Bolton to be ambassador to the United Nations.
Under the Constitution, a recess appointment during the lawmakers’ August break would last until the next session of Congress, which begins in January 2007.
Anticipating this move from Bush, Senator Christopher Dodd of Connecticut, senior Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said yesterday on “Fox News Sunday, “He’s damaged goods. This is a person who lacks credibility.”
