Administration and Texas Republican Party Platform turn to UN for help

Texas Republican Party Platform

snip

The United Nations

p.26: "The Party believes it is in the best interest of the citizens of the United States that we immediately rescind our membership, as well as financial and military contributions to, the United Nations... The Party urges Congress to evict the United Nations from U.S. soil."

Does President Bush's recess appointment of John Bolton to the United Nations reflect this antagonism? In an interview with Juan Williams on National Public Radio in 2000:

Bolton: "If I were redoing the Security Council today, I'd have one permanent member because that's the real reflection of the distribution of power in the world."

"And that one member would be, John Bolton?" Mr. Williams queried.

"The United States," Mr. Bolton replied. more

From the Boston Globe:

Bolton, undersecretary of state for arms control and international security, has long ridiculed the United Nations, international law, and multi--lateralism. In 1998, speaking of the risk of losing a vote in the UN, Bolton declared that ''This will simply provide further evidence to why nothing more should be paid to the UN system."

1. Isn't this AH going to be gone soon?
I know I read that his confirmation was not reauthorized, and the only way he could keep the job was to work for NOTHING...NO PAY! I sure don't see him doing that!

Hmmm, I wonder who Shrub will suggest next?
