Bolton won't run for president

(CNN) - Former United Nations Ambassador John Bolton announced Tuesday he will not seek the Republican presidential nomination in 2012.

Bolton, who publicly discussed a bid for months, made the announcement on Fox News, where he is a contributor, and subsequently on Twitter.

"While I have decided not to seek nomination, know that I will strive to keep national security front and center in 2012 election," Bolton wrote on his Twitter account. "Thank you to supporters! I am honored and humbled. Know that I will continue to be a voice to promote national security. Our job isn't done."

    Yeah right... Like somebody was really considering Colonel Sanders here (Does he have "bangs" on his upper lip?)... Now, I might vote for this Orville-Reddenbocker-look'n dude for president of the popcorn association, but not of the country. Besides, he's a war-mongering liar...
