Well, this lets the cat out of the bag: Democrat Eleanor Holmes Norton and presumably many other Democrats would only wage a war on Syria out of their personal loyalty to a man. Not the nation. Not our national interests or security. A man — Barack Obama.

Asked whether the president would be justified in taking action even after Congress potentially votes down his proposals, Norton said: “No, oh boy, no. I think it’ll be like the red line trap. He said if the red line you cross it. I think once you say, ‘I’m going to Congress,’ you can’t say, ‘Okay, I’m going to do it anyway.’”

As D.C.’s delegate to Congress, Holmes is unable to actually cast a vote in the debate, but she told Press: “If [Obama] gets saved at all, I think it’ll be because, it’ll be because of loyalty of Democrats. They just don’t want to see him shamed and humiliated on the national stage.”

She elaborated: “At the moment, that’s the only reason I would vote for it if I could vote on it.”

Wind this back a bit. Holmes may also be admitting that Democrats like herself opposed Bush purely because he was not man they personally had any loyalty to, despite the office he held. And wind that back a bit. Why would Democrats such as herself feel that way?

Party, race, or both?

Profile of a Coward. Her allegiance is to her Dear Leader Obama, not the American Republic or her own conscience, assuming she has any.

Further proof of my contention that some people are too stupid to be allowed out of the house without close adult supervision.

Isn't that just precious. We have Congress critters who worship the cult of personality rather than uphold the Constitution as the solumnly pledged.

And there was a certain funny looking Austrian corporal who demanded loyalty oaths of a military, not to the nation, or its constitution, but to himself, personally.

Still three plus years of this clown.

“To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public.” Theodore Roosevelt

She is as tribal as it gets...

She's the classic example, along with Marion Barry, why "Home Rule" is such a touchy subject in Washington D.C. This is why they have life-time tenure in elective office on District Committees and such.
It's a form of vindictive racism, of getting back at The Man. meaning Whites in general.....seldom about any individual public issues taken as separate subjects for discussion.

Eleanor Holmes Norton is only a delegate to congress from the District of Columbia. She has no real legislative powers. She can vote, that's about it. Yes she's an idiot, most progressives are.

This is news ? Leftists have follwed this playbook for almost 100 years.

Everything is personal and everything is political. That's how they roll and we shouldn't be shocked about it since it is very old news.

Don't want to see him humiliated? If you helped getting him elected, you are already responsible for foisting this joke upon America. And we stopped laughing a long time ago.
