John Bolton for Prez!

Finally! An anti-Trump Republican and a Resistance Democrat to boot. What more could you possibly want in a presidential candidate?

John Bolton, who was former President Donald Trump’s national security advisor for more than a year, said Monday he is “absolutely” considering launching a 2024 presidential bid — in large part to challenge Trump.

Bolton, speaking on NBC News’ “Meet The Press Now,” said the “one thing” that would spur him to run would be “to make it clear to the people of this country that Donald Trump is unacceptable as the Republican nominee.”

Bolton called it “un-American” for Trump to “challenge the Constitution” when he suggested over the weekend that the nation’s supreme law could be terminated in order to put him back in the White House.

Imagine the world that Bolton lives in, where he could consider himself to be a legit candidate? What would be the color of the sky in that world?

Neither Russia nor China is our enemy.
Neither Iran nor Venezuela are threatening America.
Cuba is a dead horse, stop beating it.

Another anti-Trump candidate.

None of these people have anything else, do they? Heaven forbid we do anything to benefit we, the people.

OTOH, this clown would really have to exert himself to do worse than the ones we've had in the last 40 years.

@exindy of many of the worst foreign policy disasters of the last 40 years.
So could he do worse as president? I wouldn't put it past him.

He’d finally get his dream for war with Iran come true. Between him and Pompeo I think the bigger nightmare would be one of them as president and the other as VP.

Which AIPAC/MIC/pharma/bank bought politician are you going to vote for? Don’t be surprised when nothing changes.

@gjohnsit  
put their heads together. No telling what they would come up with. A wave of assassinations? A huge “shock and awe” military attack on Iran? Occupying the parts of Syria the U.S. hasn’t already invaded?

As I recall, Bolton wanted to run for president back in 2012 as well.

I wonder who would be worse, Bolton or Pompeo? I think Pompeo already has an organization formed.

...ready to go off. Bolton as the "white hat" or the voice of reason, is one of the most ridiculous things I've ever heard. There will be a war in Asia if Bolton becomes commander in chief. There might be a war in Asia in any case. Bolton only makes it more likely.
