Nothing much going on this Sunday morning on the chat shows except for Putin preparing to gobble up eastern Ukraine, ISIS preparing to gobble up Kurdistan, and Obama preparing to gobble up what’s left of separation of powers with his looming executive order on amnesty. Seems like a moment that might warrant an appearance by a cabinet member, if not The One himself, but as I write this no one from the administration is scheduled to appear. It’s left to former Obama appointees, like ambassador to Iraq James Jeffrey and national security advisor James Jones, to pick up the slack on “Face the Nation” and “State of the Union” respectively. Hmmm.
It’s a good day for Republican hawks, though. McCain will also be on “State of the Union,” Lindsey Graham will lead on “Fox News Sunday,” and Kelly Ayotte will appear on “Political Capital” on Bloomberg TV. Where are the doves? Or are there any when it comes to ISIS? The full line-up is at Politico.
