The Blaze -- Former CBS News anchor Dan Rather said Sunday that President Barack Obama’s opponents want to politically “cut his heart out and throw his liver to the dogs.”
Rather’s descriptive analysis came during “The Chris Matthews Show” on NBC. Obama has been on a so-called “charm offensive” to try to foster better relations with Republicans.
“All of these things we’ve said about what the president could do, should do, might have, could have, but the central thing to keep in mind is his opponents — you talk about taking them out to dinner, making nice with them — these people politically want to cut his heart out and throw his liver to the dogs. That does make it very, very difficult to come on nice to them,” Rather said.
“Yeah, it causes indigestion over dinner don’t you think?” Matthews cracked.
Blog author's comments - Rather is being just a bit extreme. All that many Americans wanted from Barack Obama was for him to function as the president of the United States. To live up to the pledge he took to honor the Constitution and Bill of Rights. We want someone who will tell the truth, to stop blaming everyone else for the destruction he and his administration have caused.
I am surprised Dan Rather is still around. But, no one should be surprised by what he said; it was the Chris Mathews show. Rather gave them what they wanted. Obama does not want to work with the Republicans. As long as they control the House and do not give him whatever he wants he blames them for his failings. The GOP definitely needs to retain the House in the 2014 midterm elections.
