Who Said It: Chris Matthews or Bill Kristol?

Today, we have someone making the case for military intervention on MSNBC, and it’s…

Chris Matthews?!?

Yep, the slobbering “Hardball” host appears to have a much different standard for Barack Obama today than he did for George Bush when it comes to Iraq.

Look, I think the word ‘genocide’ trumps everything,” declared Chris while sitting down with Andrea Mitchell this afternoon. “It’s about discernment … we’re going to let them get wiped out? Let them be crucified? No, I don’t think so … we can’t have another Benghazi. It’s not gonna happen.”

Ah, so it’s all about “discernment.” Well, that explains it. See, Matthews doesn’t believe George Bush has any of that, but he idolizes the great thinker in President Obama.

Earlier in the interview, Chris explained that when it comes to these matters, Barack is a “realist with a conscience“:

Funny, here was Chris only a few months ago while reflecting on the choice Bush made to intervene:

And there you have it. It’s a simple equation, really: Military intervention under W = bad. Military intervention under BHO = just dandy. As long as you’re a “realist with a conscience,” Chris will have your utmost support.

“Dick Cheney’s brain soup.” Tee-Hee.
