    Bolton is waving the old con flag, "Ignorance is good".
    He knows his base.


    John Bolton | Obama Too Nuanced | Libya Failed Policy | Mediaite

    Former Ambassador to the UN John Bolton appeared with Sean Hannity last night and may have a strange problem on his hands in case he decides to run for the Republican nomination for President. Unlike most politicians who backpedal from statements that can be overly inflammatory, Bolton might regret saying something many would interpret to be a compliment to President Obama.

    After watching the entire interview, it is abundantly clear that Bolton thinks the effort in Libya now represents “the failure of the Obama administration to understand what its goals are or how to get there” and even suggests “the Constitution doesn’t bar incompetence, which is what we have here.” And in case anyone doubts Bolton’s true feelings, he slams Obama for his “haphazard” decision-making, his failure to outline a clear objective, and his inability to get agreement between our allies regarding what we are supposed to achieve. Then Bolton really lays into Obama saying “the President is too smart, too sophisticated, and too nuanced to believe in victory. He believes in something else.”

    Bolton isn't fool enough to run for President. The pay cut alone would be massive.

    And as we all have come to learn, all the GOP cares about is money in one's pockets. Just ask Caribou Barbie!

    Some are politicos though, and value power above almost all else. That's true of people on all sides.

    Bolton's not a candidate, and has no desire at all to be. I've no idea where the source in the OP is getting such nonsense.

    Although her political career is mostly done, I wouldn't count her out just yet.

    She really wants to run..govern? Not so much.

    I don't think the GOPs taking this election cycle to seriously. They got what they wanted last election..and it seems it was to much even for them. They're probably going to try to calm things down a bit..

    And allow Obama to go unchallenged in '12? Since they have NO ideas and NO candidates, perhaps that is the "safe" play?
