Billionaire casino magnate Sheldon Adelson, who spent millions trying to derail President Obama’s reelection bid, is now offering to help on Syria, saying, “I would be willing to help out the administration because I believe it’s the right thing to do. He is our only – we don’t have any other commander- in-chief,” the National Journal reports.
In an interview with National Journal, Adelson said he stands behind the White House’s push for American military action against the Syrian government. Perhaps as important: Adelson said he’s ready, if asked, to roll up his sleeves and help Obama – the “commander in chief,” as he repeatedly called him – corral the needed votes in Congress for a strike.
“He is our commander in chief, whether we like what he says politically or not,” Adelson said late Monday evening.
The 80-year old Republican, one of the most influential GOP moneymen in the nation, is no Obama apologist. He’s still the financier who spent, along with his wife, nearly $100 million trying to defeat Democratic candidates, Obama chief among them, last year. But he is also a pro-Israel hawk who said that America’s standing in the world is at stake in the showdown with Syria over chemical weapons. Source: National Journal
Will Donald Trump be the next wingnut to offer his assistance to President Obama? So many Judas Iscariots running around.
