Chris Matthews Asks Gabbard: Why Are So Many Democrats War Hawks?

681

In a rare moment with MSNBC’s Chris Matthews, Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard explained why the leading figures in her party are war hawks. Far from days of the Democrats feigning to have any semblance of an ‘anti-war’ platform (only convenient for Liberal activism during the Bush years, but fizzling out under Obama), today’s party attempts to out-hawk Republicans at every turn.

“I’m looking at the Democratic establishment figures,” Matthews introduced, “people I normally like. John Kerry, Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton. You go down the list. They all supported the war in Iraq. Why were they hawks? (Though we might ask, what do you mean, “were?”). “Why so many Democrats with a party that’s not hawkish, why are so many of their leaders hawks?” Matthews reiterated.

In the segment, Matthews heaps rare praise on Tulsi for being “out there all alone tonight fighting against the neocons.”

“Yeah,” Tulsi answers. “I point to two things. One is you have the foreign policy establishment and the military-industrial complex in Washington that carries such a huge amount of influence over both parties.”

She continues, “There are campaign contributions, the influence that these contractors have in this pay-to-play culture, this corrupt culture in Washington, but you also just have people who don’t understand foreign policy and who lack the experience to make these critical decisions that impact our lives and the safety and security of the American people. This is so serious about what’s at stake here.”

The interview happened immediately after this week’s fifth Democratic debate Wednesday night in Atlanta, and after pundits have continued to complain that Gabbard is a ‘single issue candidate’.

However, is there any candidate in her party or in the GOP saying these things?

We find ourselves in a rare moment of agreement with MSNBC’s Matthews: she is “out there all alone tonight fighting against the neocons.”

  1. Want to know why Chris, your “Messiah” Obama, along with Clinton and Biden, opened up the State Department, thru this Atlantic Council for LOTS of foreign money to come in. They found it personally very profitable to be a “war hawk”.

    “There are campaign contributions, the influence that these contractors have in this pay-to-play culture, this corrupt culture in Washington, but you also just have people who don’t understand foreign policy and who lack the experience to make these critical decisions that impact our lives and the safety and security of the American people. This is so serious about what’s at stake here.”

    Yep Obama and Clinton worked with Russia who worked with Iran for what? A nuclear program. Can’t tell what Clinton did in the State Department for her 4 years as she deleted EVERYTHING, which she broke federal law.

    So Chris and CNN, congratulations. You helped make it possible for Obama, your Messiah and Clinton to open the door to profit on wars. Also the heck with USA national security, as long as Clinton, Obama, Biden and the rest get personally rich.

    GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP! GOD BLESS THE USA!

      • Yes he does. If you actually READ his books, you will see he dealt with real estate all over the World, which means foreign policy.

        But then again, how Clinton, Obama, and Biden do business, well that’s crooked so that type of foreign policy he wouldn’t know. That’s why he’s changing it, and that’s why this furious, childish pouting tantrum.

        GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP! GOD BLESS THE USA!

    Poor baby Eric, lol. Obama is running away from Biden, Holder and the rest. He’s playing “I didn’t do it, they did”. lol

    The only candidate Obama will back is Michelle “don’t call me Mike, but really I am” Obama. They have the same plan the Clintons had if Hilary got in. To fleece taxpaying Americans AGAIN.

    Moochelle is waiting in the wings so him/her and Obama can come in to rescue. Nope, just look back at the 8 years THEY both were in the WH. Obama doubled our debt, and Moochelle went out on many shopping sprees. Both hated the USA. With Moochelle as president, she will double the debt, and he will go out and have many shopping sprees. And they STILL will both hate USA.

    GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP! GOD BLESS THE USA!

    • You really are apiece of work (and that’s not complimentary). How about the $! trillion expansion of our debt that the orange idiot added? Michelle went on shopping sprees? Oh, that’s right. She is married to a fine man, so let’s slam her without evidence. Do you wish you could kiss Frunp’s ass?

      • lol, did I “trigger” you again. Trillion dollar expansion I lay at the feet of Paul Ryan, the rino who worked really close with the liberal dems.

        Regarding Ms. Obama’s traveling. Thank you Judicial Watch!

        “You may recall Michele Obama’s controversial trip with friends to Spain’s luxury Costa del Sol in 2010 at a time when the U.S. unemployment rate was 9.5% on the way to 9.8%. And President Obama’s $1 trillion economic stimulus package had yet to kick in. Of course, it’s still yet to kick in.

        According to numbers gathered by Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates government corruption, that trip cost Americans at least $468,000.”

        Yep instead of “shovel ready” jobs, Michelle got to travel the world. lol

        Fine man? Do you know all this Ukraine/Russia stuff was on his watch? Him and his wife were the WORST that could have happen to this GREAT Nation. So pucker up and go kiss Obama’s ass.

        GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP! GOD BLESS THE USA!
