From Monday's White House gaggle:
MR. McCLELLAN: A lot of people that have worked very closely with Ambassador Bolton recognize that he is someone who brings a results-oriented approach to the position. If you go back and look at people who know him well -- like former Secretary of State Baker, former Ambassador to the United Nations Jeanne Kirkpatrick -- they recognize that he will be a strong advocate for the priorities that we want to see at the United Nations.
The American people want to see comprehensive reform at the United Nations...
And I'm sure that when the American people look at the current American unemployment rate, the skyrocketing deficit, the 1800+ dead military in Iraq, the fact that they can't get affordable health care and that a single serious medical emergency could wipe out their life savings and that the recently-passed bankruptcy bill could leave them destitute, the first thing that comes to their minds is, "You know what we really need? Comprehensive reform at the United Nations, damn it, that's what we really need."
Oh, those Americans. Ever the internationalists.
