As the Senate has been stalling on his nomination, President Bush has made the decisive move to have John Bolton appointed UN ambassador in recess capacity. Of course the usual suspects are howling.
Senator Harry Reid of Nevada, the Democratic leader, characterized Mr. Bush's move as "the latest abuse of power by the Bush White House". And pray tell Senator Reid, what are your thoughts about the abuse of power by the Democrats in the House & Senate?

But, as WC Varones mentions, there were no complaints from the Democrats
when President Clinton used a recess appointment to make James Hormel ambassador to Luxembourg... or when he used a recess appointment to put Roger Gregory on the 4th Circuit... or when he put Bill Lan Lee in as Assistant Attorney General over the objections of the Senate.

Now that there appears to be a glimmer of hope for overhauling the kleptocracy of despots that is the UN, perhaps we should contemplate the fate of the, soon-to-be-former ;) UN building with this list from The Man

Top 10 Uses For the UN Building

10. Additional nesting space for Pale Male's babes
9. Yet another Starbucks in the area
8. NYC's first Wal-mart Supercenter
7. Anything other than the UN
6. The new Iraqi embassy
5. World's largest bodega
4. More overpriced apartment studios
3. Headquarters for the 2016 Olympic bid committee
2. New York City's GOP Headquarters (probably only needs a few hundred square feet)

and the #1 use for the UN building
1. An East Side Football Stadium

Another thing NO-ONE is mentioning NYG...Is when President Kennedy appointed Justice Thurgood Marshall, during a recess. And anyone wanna answer the reason WHY??..Big surprise here, Southern Demo-Craps were apposed to him.

Funny how it all works isn't??

What Saint Kennedy.....opposed by the Democrates! Ron, I think you might need to attend "camp" soon.
This one made my day. Hypocrisy on parade for the Dems.
Of course Democrats complain when something doesn't go their way. POTUS had a Constitutional right to do what he did with Bolton (although to be honest, I don't think Bolton is right for the job, but that's neither here nor there and we'll see how he does), whereas there is no mention in the Constitution about endless filibustering on partisan grounds.
The President had no choice: if the Democrats don't believe in democracy, i.e. putting the appointment to the vote, then they will get an undemocratic result. As oother folks have said, the Democrats have done the same thing. They are such bad losers.
Uses for the UN building - how about "World's Largest Outhouse"?

After all, it's already full of ... well ... you know!
What really bugs me about this is the dems' hysteric claims that this is yet another 'abuse of power' by the president. HELLLOOO! It's in the Constitution that he can do this!

Amazing that Dingy Harry can't find Article II, sec. 2 of the Constitution, but he CAN find the part where it gives the minority in the Senate the right to obstruct a nominee.

Help me out here: where IS that power enumerated?
Pale Male is a red-tail hawk. Your link is about eagles.
Hi & welcome Me. You're right. I did not check the link when I copied & pasted this from The Man.
