John Bolton mulling 2016 bid...

Bolton Plans a Tour of Early-Primary States
By Robert Costa
June 24, 2013 8:07 PM

Watch out, Rand Paul.

As Paul, a Kentucky senator, plans for a 2016 presidential run, he is talking up his views on foreign policy, which, broadly speaking, include less intervention in foreign conflicts and a smaller military budget.

But Paul’s positions and rapid ascent have alarmed many Republican hawks. Behind the scenes, they’re worried that he has a shot at the nomination.

Enter John Bolton. Bolton, a former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, is being encouraged by several leading conservative power brokers to consider a presidential bid.

Bolton, who briefly considered running for president in 2012, hasn’t made up his mind. But sources tell me that he is moving closer to giving the idea serious consideration — serious enough to travel to Iowa and New Hampshire.

Later this year and throughout 2014, the former Reagan and Bush official will begin an informal national tour. He’ll give speeches, huddle with GOP leaders, and push back against the party’s libertarian shift. He’ll make the case for a muscular foreign policy.

Sources say Bolton is also planning to launch a few related groups that will help elevate his argument and his national profile. Whether the efforts evolve into a presidential campaign in a couple years is unclear, but Bolton is, without a doubt, looking to be a player.

This is amusing, to say the least. I think if John Bolton won the nomination, it would break the Republican party for good. There'd be zero youth movement in the party, and the ability for Bolton to attract moderates is laughable at best.

I think Bolton would make a great President, but I don't think he has any chance at winning. He's too square for the hope and change crowd and he's too serious for leave them alone and they'll leave us alone utopian crowd.

yep, last gasp for a party that is in shambles anyway. It amazes me how much crack ho Bush's poor leadership obliterated the GOP. There's no conservative foundation in the GOP anymore, all that is left is, well, left.

Pretending to run for the R nomination is a proven way to boost book sales and speaking engagement fees.

I agree that if Bolton runs, it's not because he expects to win the nomination or the Presidency. But I think his motives are more about pulling the eventual nominee in his direction on foreign policy. If no one from the pro-American, assertive foreign policy wing of the party runs on those issues, there will be little reason for a Rand Paul to come off of his preferred isolationist approach to the world. More importantly, it will prevent other Republican candidates from moving toward Rand Paul's position for political reasons.

He made noise about running in the last election, but in the end he decided that Mitt Romney was willing enough to make foreign policy an issue and to promote the type of foreign policy ideas that Bolton champions. Indeed, Romney brought Bolton on as an adviser in exchange for his endorsement.

Good, pull him in Bolton's direction, and then right down the drain.

America might be tired of a leader who offends and frightens our allies while empowering and emboldening our enemies.

I agree. People are sick of the "hawks" especially of that kind. It's almost like certain Republicans have formed a suicide pact.

But they would leave us alone. If you don't believe that, ask why they're not ever attacking China, Japan, India, Brazil, Canada, on and on.


Only fools like you actually swallowed "They hate us for our freedom!" as a rational explanation for terrorism.

People are sick of hearing things they don't want to hear.

People demanded vengeance after 9/11 and they got it.

After years of war, $3it jobs, $3itty economy, and no resolution we wanted hugs and flowers and rainbows.

We got that.

Still no resolution or improvement in our overall quality of life.

After two extremist retards in a row I'm crossing my fingers we finally look at a true moderate with common sense...
