United States : Republican Propaganda Spins and Spins

According to Move America Forward, a marketing piece developed by the Republican machine, the one man who had enough common sense to say "I don’t feel comfortable nominating John Bolton"—Sen. Voinovich (R-OH) —has changed his mind.

That's at least how the website promotes it. Its headline piece reads (enthusiastically):

"*UPDATE* - TERRIFIC NEWS!!!! New information into Move America Forward officials confirms that Senator Voinovich is taking a 'new' and 'fair' look at John Bolton - the man President Bush has nominated to serve as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations. We are confident Senator Voinovich will vote 'YES' to allow Mr. Bolton's nomination to proceed from the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. MAF's principals are not at liberty to disclose who they've heard from and specifically what was said - under promise of confidentiality - but the organization is now confident that John Bolton's nomination will make it to the floor for a vote by the full U.S. Senate."

Poor Voinovich. He must be under tremendous pressure. From what I’ve heard, it is not so good to be on Bolton’s or Karl Rove’s bad side.
