Bush Bypasses Senate to Appoint 'Swift Boat' Donor to Ambassador Post 04 Apr 2007 Dictator Bush named Republican fundraiser Sam Fox as U.S. ambassador to Belgium on Wednesday, using a maneuver that allowed him to bypass Congress where Democrats had derailed Fox's nomination. Democrats had denounced Fox for his 2004 donation to the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth. Recognizing Fox did not have the votes to obtain Senate confirmation, Bush withdrew the nomination last month. On Wednesday, with Congress out of town for a spring break, the president [sic] used his power to make recess
appointments to put Fox in the job without Senate confirmation.
