Schumer On Israel-Hezbollah War, Bolton (Video)
Mark July 30th on your calenders, kids. Because that’s the day that Sen. Chuck Schumer declared that he has “no criticism of the President…because I think he is doing the right thing.” Vis-a-vis the current situation in the Middle East, that is. But still, baby steps are good.
Here’s the video:
All joking aside though, what’s been refreshing since the start of this conflict has been the general bipartisan support the Bush administration has received so far (save for a few exceptions) and the overwhelming support among lawmakers for the state of Israel and her actions. It’s nice, for a change, to see almost everyone on the same page.
Also, as reported by today’s New York Sun, I included in the above clip Schumer’s remarks on John Bolton’s U.N. nomination including his belief that it is “unlikely” he will face a filibuster.
