Chris Matthews was talking about what a tough vote it’s going to be for anti-war Democrats to vote for a military strike against Syria. In short, he says they have to do it to save Obama’s hide. What a great reason to vote to go to war. Good grief, the world has gone mad.
“So you’ll have minority Republican vote, and Pelosi’s going to have to make up the difference with the minority caucus. She’s going to have to come in with a supermajority of Democrats to support their Democratic president. This is a wicked position they have put her in. Maybe she can meet the standard. But I don’t know whether [Chief of Staff Denis] McDonough and the president walking along the south lawn the other day were thinking about the endgame.”
“I think the Democrats are going to be forced to sacrifice men and women who really, really don’t want to vote for this,” Matthews concluded. “They’re going to have to vote for it to save the president’s hide. That’s a bad position to put your party in.”
He basically is blaming it on the Republicans who aren’t going to go along. Of note is that polls show a vast majority of Americans are against military action in Syria. So maybe he should blame us.
