Could this be the real moment...

...of truth for John Bolton's ratification by the Senate? Here is a FreeRepublic story that says W has told the Senate to give Bolton an up or down vote now.

President Bush demanded on Monday an immediate up-or-down Senate vote on John Bolton's nomination as U.N. ambassador, and top aides would not rule out Bush bypassing the Senate by issuing a "recess appointment" giving Bolton the post for 18 months.

"It's time for the Senate to give an up-or-down vote now," Bush said at a news conference with European Union leaders. "Well, put him in. If they're interested in reforming the United Nations, they ought to approve John Bolton."

It's interesting that this president is leading the nation on very real issues. He's leading a tough and crucial war for this nation's defense. He's tough on the United Nations at a time when that debating society is perhaps the leading symptom of a misguided left wing/progressive liberal West. One of the most refreshing morale-boosting events to take place this past week was W's declaration that if the left doesn't have any ideas, then it should get out of the way and allow others to lead. I wanted to provide a link to that quoting in a reliable source, but I can't find it anywhere.

President Bush is leading the reasonable people in this world who know enough of their history to know that Amnesty International, Senator Durbin and Senator Reid and the left wing of the Democrat Party are wrong and anti-military. Senator Durbin has come far too close to embracing anti-American statements.
