    What began as a whisper campaign months ago is now being openly discussed among conservatives, and that is the possibility that former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. John Bolton could potentially become ‘a sleeper candidate’ for President in 2012 on the Republican ticket.
    Bolton’s credentials are stellar. While serving at the U.N. he was a fearless and sometimes controversial crusader for American interests at an institution that has major credibility problems with its overt promotion of extremist Islamic groups and nations.
    As a stalwart proponent of liberty, Bolton made it clear that it is not in U.S. interests to support Communists in Cuba, Venezuela, or North Korea, nor the overt push in the EU toward socialism, which has brought the entire continent to the brink of economic collapse.
    Instead, along with a few other members of the Bush Administration Bolton emphasized the strategic importance of aligning ourselves with eastern European countries that had suffered under the relentless oppression of Marxism/Communism and had tasted the sweet victory of human freedom with the demise of the Soviet Union.
    These nations, such as the Czech Republic, the Ukraine, Poland, and others became allies of the U.S. due to our dogged determination during the Cold War to liberate oppressed persons in Europe from the heavy jackboot to the throat, compliments of the Communists.

    Being ambassador the UN is not a resume enhancement for a Republican candidate.

    Since he came on the scene in the Bush Administration Bolton has been one of those of whom I would say of him; when he talks I listen. He absolutely minces no words, and goes to the heart of the matter. he never talks just to hear himself.

    "Bolton has been a prominent participant in some neoconservative groups such as the Project for the New American Century (PNAC), the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs (JINSA), and the Committee for Peace and Security in the Gulf (CPSG). But Bolton disputes the label "neo-conservative" attached to him[7], pointing out that he was a conservative since high school, when he worked on the 1964 Goldwater campaign.

    He grew up in the working-class neighborhood of Yale Heights and won a scholarship to the McDonogh School in Owings Mills, Maryland, graduating in 1966. He also ran the school's Students For Goldwater campaign in 1964."
