It’s Way Past Time For Bolton To Fade Away – The Sooner, The Better

Former U.S. Ambassador John Bolton’s book hits the shelves this week and everyone is going to hate him.

Democrats might like to rehash the impeachment nonsense again with the release as they will certainly feel that his work will touch upon these issues again. Talk about something hilarious. Dems are going to fall over themselves because of a neoconservative, a political position that’s anathema to the Democratic base.

Trump officials and the president himself will continue to trash the book and Bolton and this will last a few weeks.

Trump Messed Up With Choosing Bolton

Whether it was a lack of judgment on Trump’s part or a badly miscalculated attempt to extend an olive branch to that wing of the GOP that put Bolton and others like him in close proximity to the White House, I cannot say. Either way, it was a mistake to have him in the inner circle.

When I first became aware of Bolton, during his time at the UN, I thought he was going to be great in that job. He didn’t take any nonsense from the pointy heads and we needed that. Now it turns out that he’s just another self-absorbed bureaucrat who thinks he’s smarter than everyone else. Between him Justice John Roberts and George W. Bush, he really left a black eye on the country.

Trump Needs To Stop Hiring These Swamp Guys

Even though I will vote for Trump again and hope he wins, he does make mistakes with the personnel he puts in the White House. He needs to make better decisions when it comes to people.

He still thinks he’s running a business. In business, it’s not uncommon to put your enemies at the table so that they either have to support you, or they turn on you and expose themselves to everyone which destroys their business credibility. He hasn’t quite gotten that you can’t do that with the government.

Some of the president’s egregious failures have been in hiring the wrong people. From Rex Tillerson as Secretary of State to John Kelly as Chief of Staff to James Mattis as Secretary of Defense to Jeff Sessions as Attorney General — the list is long. While each of these is impressive individuals, all were wrong for the jobs they were assigned.

Business is simple. You can walk away from deals. The government is complex. You cannot walk away from allies or enemies.

In the case of Bolton, he is a frustrated old policy wonk who wants to wield the authority of an elected official. He was useful as UN Ambassador, But that’s the end of it. He has neither the disposition (nor the haircut) to get elected to anything. He wanted to push his boss into something NO ONE wants, especially Trump.

Bolton is just the latest in a very long line of government employees who should be incarcerated. All of them are walking around free. Something is very, very wrong with that. Time for him to fade away. He’s making a fool of himself.

Bolton’s Book Should Be Boycotted

I know this won’t happen but I think Bolton‘s book should be boycotted by the masses proving once again to this neoconservative that the market place is the true place where success or failure occurs. If nobody buys his book, you will not be contributing to his personal wealth which is what he is actually trying to do.

Therefore the market should boycott purchasing his book and let it rot on the shelves, teaching his publisher they made a bad decision.
