Chris Matthews: Gov. Rick Perry and “appeasement”

I completely agree with Chris Matthews on this point.

Quoting Chris Matthews: “At this very moment of national challenge, with the president doing what every friend of Israel — left, right and center — understands he needed to do, this person from Texas, this foreign policy ingenue, spotted his chance and he showed up in New York to make his diplomatic debut.”

“Mr. Perry, you did our president a disservice, our country a dishonor today. You showed that you do not understand the role of the American presidency in our national life. When a president acts to defend the United States, in this case on principle as well as national interest, we should all stand behind him.”

“If you don`t get that, you don`t get us — much less the job of representing us on the world stage which the president did so well and so courageously today.”
