Amb Bolton endorses Mitt Romney

“I’ve thought about this very hard. This is an extraordinarily important decision for the Republican Party. I believe it is absolutely critical to defeat Barack Obama in November. I think our country would be in dire straights domestically and internationally if he gets another four years. And I think Governor Romney is the person who can best lead the party, best articulate our conservative principals and is most likely to beat Barack Obama.”

“I’m very confident about the strength of his view of American exceptualism, the importance of a vigorous American role in the world to defend our interests. And I think he fully understands the challenges we face.”

On Obama’s foreign policy Bolton said “He is comfortable with American decline in the world, he’s comfortable with a receding , come home America. He’s happy with a reduced defense budget. He doesn’t appreciate that we face enormous risks and challenges most immediately from the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction but also from the threat, long term, of a potentially aggressive China or resurgent Russia, chaos in the Middle East. I just don’t think he understands the world even after three years of on the job training.
