Former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton doesn’t have high hopes for President Barack Obama’s first visit to the U.N. later this week. “I think this will be a speech that will demonstrate why Obama is what I call a post-American president. He is really above all that patriotism stuff,” said a sarcastic Bolton.

“You recall Evan Thomas, the Newsweek editor, said at his Normandy speech, ‘He’s above all the countries.’ Sort of like God.”
