John Bolton on Obama Administration’s Approach on Egypt: “Hesitant, Inconsistent, Confused, and Just Plain Wrong” (Updated)
John Bolton spoke out against the Obama Administration’s “hesitant, inconsistent, confused and just plain wrong.”
The Political Ticker reported:
Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton condemned President Obama as “weak” and “indecisive” on foreign affairs while speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference Saturday.
And specifically on the topic of the revolution in Egypt, Bolton stated “We don’t have the leadership in the White House that can deal with it.”
CPAC is the largest annual gathering of conservative-minded activists, which this year is extra-important because it’s the first cattle-call of potential 2012 Republican presidential candidates.
Bolton described the Obama administration’s approach to Egypt as “hesitant, inconsistent, confused, and just plain wrong.”
Bolton recognized the Egyptian call for democracy, but questioned the administration’s answer. “We have some degree of optimism, we can recognize that many of the people are legitimately calling for liberty and democracy as we see it,” he said.
