If you’re not following the congressional debate over Obama’s request for a new AUMF to fight ISIS, you might as well turn the TV off this morning. If you are, take your pick: White House chief of staff Denis McDonough is the lead guest on “Face the Nation,” former SecDef Leon Panetta gets the spotlight on “State of the Union,” and of course John McCain will turn up on “Meet the Press” because it’s a war issue, after all, and someone needs to make the perennial case that we’re not doing nearly enough.
Actually, skip all of that and force yourself to watch John Boehner on “Fox News Sunday.” His take on the AUMF is the only one this morning that matters for passage, and of course he’ll also be pressed on the House’s stalemate with McConnell and the Senate over defunding DHS to block Obama’s executive amnesty. He’ll be followed by Alabama chief justice Roy Moore, who’s just been trumped by a federal judge on gay marriage and whose last interview with a cable-news anchor was more eventful than the usual fare. The full line-up is at the AP.
