    Yeah, what could be more devious than driving your car stone drunk into a lake with a young girl inside, allowing her to drown and then reporting it 24 hours later. What could be more devious than that?
    I know. His foolish constituents who keep putting him in office. That absolutely boggles my mind. :confused:

    Look, just because a guy gets drunk, drowns his mistress, runs away and uses family connections to get away with it doesn't make him a bad guy.

    Anyway, back to Bolton.

    I'll give Senator Kennedy a dollar if he can tell me the name of the president who made Thurgood Marshall a recess appointment to the Supreme Court.

    I wonder if he was this upset when Bill Clinton made over 200 recess appointments.

    Kofi Annan has praised Bolton and said that he looks forward to working with him.

    I'm not sure if that's a good sign or not.

    Questions Still Surround Laura Bush's Midland Tragedy
    from THE DALLAS MORNING NEWS, May 4, 2000

    "Report Finds Fatal Crash Attributable to Mrs. Bush"

    "The wife of Gov. George W. Bush was responsible for a traffic accident that killed a high school classmate in Midland 37 years ago, according to a newly released accident report. Investigators said a 1963 Chevrolet driven by Mrs. Bush - then Laura Welch, a high school senior - ran a stop sign and struck a Chevrolet Corvair driven by Michael Douglas. Copies of the accident report - parts of which are illegible - were released Wednesday by Midland City Attorney Keith Stretcher after state Attorney General John Cornyn held that the information was public.... Mr. Stretcher, the Midland city attorney, initially declined to release any information about the accident on the grounds that it involved minors and therefore was exempt from disclosure under the Texas Public Information Act. He also contended that disclosing the information would violate the parties' privacy rights. Police listed two violations as contributing to the accident, both by Mrs. Bush. One checked box read "disregard stop sign or light," and the other was illegible.... Both drivers were Robert E. Lee High School students. Neither was drinking, and no citations were issued, according to the report." (more from DMN)

    in GLOBE, August 8, 2000

    "Bush's Wife Still Haunted by Death Crash Nightmare"

    Presently available on newsstands, this story reviews material found in the DMN story documented above and an AP story on the same day, as well as a relevant interchange from a Barbara Wolters interview with Laura Bush on 20/20 the next day. A partial copy of the original Midland police report is included, along with photographs of the crash scene. Judy Dykes, a friend of Laura Bush who was in the passanger's seat at the time of the accident, was unnamed in the DMN story, but told the DMN reporter, "[The story] is not worth digging into.It was an accident, a horrible, horrible accident years ago, and it has no relevance." The GLOBE appears to believe relevance may possibly be found in its reporting of comments made by two unnamed members of Texas' law enforcement community. One wondered why no ticket was issued by the Midland police. The other wondered why no grand jury was convened by the City or County of Midland. --Politex, 8/7/00

    OK. I'll bite: how is a little girl, with very little driving experience, running a red light similar to a grown man who gets blitzed, drowns his mistress, runs away and then uses his family's connections to get away with it?

    How is the story about Laura Bush relevant to anything here? It has no relevance to Kennedy, nor to Bolton.

    The truth is that the Senate had five months to vote up or down and they didn't. They can't blame anyone but themselves. If Bolton was so bad, then vote him down. Otherwise, let the president do his job and get on with the running of hte country. If you want a different ambassador, elect a different president, or vote this guy down.

    Five months is a long time to be scrutinized and have goodness knows what put on hold. I agree that if Bolton were such a terrible mismatch for this job, then they needed to vote him down in a timely manner.

    Right now, I've about decided that there should be a time limit on these personal investigations so everyone can move on!

    I can't see that there was anything devious about it. They have known about it for a while. It was open, announced in a public WH announcement inside the building, with cameras and reporters.

    Maybe this shows that Kennedy doesn't know what devious means.

    Bill Clinton made numerous appointments while the Senate was in recess. He's done so more often than GW. So when GW does it, to quote the tailor to the nudist "So what"? When a repiblican POTUS does it, the dems will cry foul. When a democrat POTUS does it, the reps will cry foul. Bottom line is that any sitting POTUS has the power to do it, and doing so is not usurping anyone.
