ohn R. Bolton, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, weighed in on Tuesday morning on the obviously uncomfortable get-together of President Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin, characterizing the attempt to find common ground on Syria a pure waste of time.

Though it could be overshadowed by the conflict in Syria, leaders from the world's major industrial nations plan to discuss how they can boost economic growth and regain competitiveness during the Group of Eight summit this week.
