Save Israel, Vote for… John Bolton

bolton Save Israel, Vote for... John Bolton

Here’s part of a typically measured statement John Spencer just sent out about Hillary Clinton’s uncertain attitude towards confirming U.N. Ambassador John Bolton:

“Dissent and debate are healthy in the democratic process, but now is not the time to question a presidential appointment. I call on Senator Clinton to stop playing politics with national security and join in support of the Bolton appointment. Anything less sends the wrong message to the nation and the world. If Senator Clinton truly supports Israel, if she really believes that we need to get tough with Iran and North Korea, then she should see that John Bolton is the man for the job. If, on the other hand, she believes that making news to promote her candidacy for President is appropriate she should continue her caterwauling in the halls of Congress.”
