Senate Dems Postpone Bolton Vote Until September


by Steve

Despite Chuck Schumer and Hillary Clinton's apparent support for his confirmation, Senate Democrats were able to delay a final confirmation vote on John Bolton until September, when Congress will return from recess. Both Clinton and Schumer had indicated not only that they would oppose a filibuster, but might also vote to confirm Bolton, simply because he was a good friend of Israel.

That's right; that's all that matters for our foreign policy. It is apparently irrelevant whether or not the man is a detriment to our efforts at the UN.

Harry Reid is still waiting for the White House to provide the Senate with documents sought since last year.
