    U.S. Ambassador to the U.N.

    Here's an email I received and though I normally don't pass this stuff on because I don't want to turn this into a political focused forum, I detest the UN so much I just couldn't resist. Anyway, do with it what you will, I will probably delete or lock the thread in a few days. After I call some of these yahoos....

    ==================================================

    We need to take immediate action to back President Bush's selection
    of John Bolton to serve as U.S. Ambassador to the U.N.

    As we informed you about yesterday, Bolton is a harsh critic of
    the UN.

    His appointment has caused an outcry in the "Blame America First"
    crowd because they know his presence in the UN will spell trouble
    for those who have backed the UN's track record of corruption and
    failure.

    In 1994 Bolton lashed out at the UN in a speech saying:

    "There is no such thing as the United Nations. There
    is an international community that occasionally can
    be led by the only real power left in the world, and
    that is the United States."

    Bolton correctly labeled North Korea's Kim Jong Il a "tyrannical
    dictator" which sent U.N. officials into a fit of protest. They
    weren't bothered by the fact that the North Korean government had
    called Bolton "human scum."

    Bolton knows who America's enemies are and he isn't afraid to stand
    up and point them out - just as Ronald Reagan did when facing the
    Communist Bloc nations.

    And now, just as they fought Reagan's efforts to win the Cold War,
    Senate Democrats say they are going to fight Bolton's appointment.

    You can read Senate Democrat Leader, Harry Reid's statement on
    Bolton, where Reid threatens Bolton will face a tough confirmation
    process:

    We need you to send a message of support for Bolton - AND RIGHT AWAY!
    There is only one way the politicians in Washington truly get the
    message that Americans are trying to send, and that is when their
    phone lines are tied up.

    We need every one of you to place just ONE polite phone call to each
    of the four legislative leaders listed below. Indicate your name
    and that you are calling as a supporter of the organization Move
    America Forward in support of John Bolton's nomination.

    Remember, this only will work if every one of you takes just 5 minutes
    to make one phone call to each of the four Senate leaders listed below.

    Here are the four individuals you need to contact right away:

    Democrat Leader Harry Reid: (202) 224-3542

    Assistant Democrat Leader Dick Durbin: (202) 224-2152

    Republican Senator Bill Frist (Majority Leader): (202) 224-3344

    Republican Senator Mitch McConnell (Majority Whip): (202) 224-2541
