The White House is trying to paint Senate resistance to President Bush’s nominee to the United Nations, John Bolton, as partisan obstructionism. White House spokesman Scott McClellan said:
It’s clear that the Democratic leadership is not interested in finding a middle ground; they’re not interested in information. The information has been provided and made available to people.
Sorry, Mr. McClellan, but Sen. Trent Lott (R-MS) doesn’t agree. Listen for yourself:
Way to go, Sen. Lott. Couldn’t have said it better myself.
