The other day I saw one of my heroes in person and I’m still swooning. Unlike many modern “heroes” he is not young, isn’t an entertainer, or endowed with a body like a competitive athlete. All that means nothing to me compared to the hyenas this man has had to stand up to. Ambasador John Bolton was out on the campaign trail stumping for Mitt Romney. Apparently, he was chosen to be Romney’s foreign relations advisor. In this tricky and dangerous area of expertise I can’t think of choosing anyone better.
Ambassador Bolton is a Reagan Republican who has served in many positions including the State Department as undersecretary and as our ambassador to the UN. He’s a conservative who believes in America’s exceptionalism and states so unequivically. For example, when he was asked whether we should get out of the UN he answered that we should be paying less and making sure that we get our needs met for the money we are paying.(Paraphrased)
Another statement that remains with me is what he said about Obama’s relationship with Natanyahu. He didn’t mince words,and said that in his whole political career he has never seen a head of state treated so disrespectfully. He also said that for peace talks to be successful between Israel and the Palestinians they have to meet face to face and hammer it out themselves after the Palestinians accept Israel as a Jewish state.The most annoying thing was that there wasn’t as many people, especially Jews, there as I expected. The only way people found out about this was by e-mails.We’re talking political rock star at a neighborhood synagogue for free. My friend googled the location and Bolton and came up with nothing.This is one of the problems that I have noticed with the GOP. Their organization is absolutely terrible.
The best part, even better than Bolton, was how many people left when Democrat representative Ron Klein was announced. Probably at least half
of the people left at intermission because they didn’t want to see or hear the lies and nonsense that he’d spew.
For me, Romney did it again. He’s chosen Ryan for vice president and we now have the possibility of Ambassador Bolton replacing Hillary as Secretary of State. This is a trifecta of three principled men who take their obligations to this country seriously. Our Three Commie (or is it Islamic) Stooges seem to have their loyalties confused.
