“They chose to obstruct his confirmation, even though he enjoys majority support in the Senate, and even though their tactics will disrupt our diplomatic work at a sensitive and important time,” Mr. Bush said. “This stubborn obstructionism ill serves our country, and discourages men and women of talent from serving their nation.”Uh, mirror over here for the President please. By the way, that majority Senate support doesn't exist. It's just another one of your hallucinations.
Being the spoiled guys, they still wanted their own way:
Mr. Bolton wanted very much to stay at the world body, administration officials said, and Vice President Dick Cheney backed exploration of some way to bypass the Senate. But that course was almost certain to inflame tensions between Congress and the White House, and in the end, Mr. Cheney and Mr. Bolton gave up.Waaaah. See ya later sucka, don't let a UN resolution hit you on the ass on the way out.
