Bolton Says Threat of International Terrorism Has Grown Over Past 4 Years, Would Consider VP Slot

Former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. John Bolton, when asked if he felt safer national security-wise than he did four years ago, told Townhall that he thinks the threat of international terrorism has actually grown.


"I understand the Obama administration is trying to make the argument that foreign policy is a strength of theirs, using the killing of Osama bin Laden. But the way I would look at it is this: Osama bin Laden was killed while Obama was president--he wasn't killed because Obama was president," Bolton said.

Bolton also told Townhall that he'd consider a VP slot on the GOP ticket, but that he's not "sitting by the phone waiting for that call."

"If you're asked, anybody would have to consider it," he said.

Later that day at the NRA convention, Mitt Romney thanked several different Americans by name for their work and included Bolton. One of the lines in Romney's speech that garnered the biggest applause was his praise for Bolton: "I applaud Ambassador Bolton for opposing international efforts to erode our rights."
