Umm. It was Trump who picked a fight with Iran. Should he be in a straight jacket?

Wonder if Boltonís departure will add to the speculation, Pence will not be on the Trump 2020 ticket.
Much of Trump's base will stay home if mother and Pence are not on the ticket.

I am sure many war-loving Phonycons are shaking, shivering and gnashing their teeth at Trump's
move.
Bolton lasted MUCH longer than his predecessors. Trump liked something about Bolton, I wish a Trump supporter could enlighten me as to what the attraction was in the first place. Because I really have no clue. It's not like Bolton was an unknown character plucked from obscurity.

Tucker is right - Bolton is a man of the Left. As was Bush. And all the neocons in government today - they're all liberals.

Bolton is a war monger and he never should have had the position in the first place.

"Parting is such sweet sorrow..." --Shakespeare. This one seems a bit ugly.
While I'm thrilled to see Bolton go, Trump is a loose cannon so this might not be as good as it first seems. Bolton is the devil you know.

Trump and foreign policy/national security are mutually exclusive unless there is money flowing into his wallet. Bolton was an awful choice for the job from the start but no one I've heard ever said Bolton was trying to pocket money off his policy efforts. That is about the best that can be said for him.

They have installed a motor on the revolving door so that is spins a lot faster. This way, they can bring new people in, and shoo them out much faster than previously.

Not sure what happened to him hiring the "best and brightest", but he sure flips them pretty fast.
