White House surprised by candor?

The action by the Senate Foreign Relations committee to send John Bolton's name to the Senate for a vote to be UN ambassador was an interesting point in the annals of advise and consent.
Forgetting that Bolton's "kiss up and kick down" management style reminds people of every psycho boss people have worked for.
What was more interesting was the White House reaction to Republican Senator George Voinovich who said: "It is my opinion that John Bolton is the poster child of what someone in the diplomatic corps should not be," Voinovich said Thursday". A White House source told several journalists that they were surprised that Voinovich said publicly what he had told them in private. I guess truth and candor is something they are not use to in the White House.
