John Bolton has launched a new defense initiative, Decide America. Check it out. This is wonderful news. We need brilliant and proud statesmen like Ambassador John Bolton engaging in the dialogue directly with the American people. I strongly urge you to sign on.
I pray he runs. When America wakes up from this destructive, crippling Obinge, it is not going to be pretty. We will need a leader of substance with the depth and breadth to lead the American people while holding them in the highest regard and with the respect that we, the people, deserve.
I look forward to hearing Ambassador Bolton's remarks at our 911 Freedom Rally at Ground Zero on September 11th, marking the tenth anniversary of the biggest and bloodiest attacks on American soil in our nation's history.
John Bolton launches new national security group Politico July 15
The former U.N. ambassador has launched a new group, Decide America, aimed at increasing the level of dialogue about national security, with a special eye on the 2012 elections.
“The genesis was a concern on the ambassador’s part that national security was being ignored in the public discourse,” Decide America executive director Mark Groombridge said. “If you look at it, for example, in the CNN debate, it wasn’t until the last 20 minutes that John King even raised the issue of national security.”
Bolton, who has a long career in government that started at the U.S. Agency for International Development during the Reagan administration, has long talked about an opening for a Republican presidential candidate with foreign policy experience among the current crop of GOP candidates. He’d talked about filling that role himself, but he’s shown few signs of visible political movement in recent month.
Given the tax laws Decide America is subject to as a project of the 501(c)4 organization Citizen Guardian and the potential thorny issues Bolton would face as if he did launch a political campaign while leading the group, its launch might be the clearest sign yet that Bolton won’t be breaking out the bunting.
“Decide America is in no way connected to any type of campaign,” Groombridge, a longtime associate of Bolton’s, said. “Any campaign-related decision is something that John needs to make in close consultation with his family.”
