Matthews: power to the people
August 13, 2006
Chris Matthew's closed his Sunday show with a powerful and important commentary on the significance of the coming mid-term elections and how the Connecticut Democratic Senate primary proved that people really do have the power to create change:
"Do you believe the Bush policy in Iraq is leading to less terrorist hatred or more? Are we on the right course or do we need a change? There's no way to split the difference here. State your position.Ã¢â‚¬Â¦ You know how easy it is to give incumbents a pat on the back and say go back to congress and do the best you can to work things out in a calm, bipartisan manner. Instead, you and a few voters like you can give the whole bunch of them the boot and give the job to the new kid on the block, just like you did in Connecticut. You may not like the burden, but you've got it."Check out this clip, then, if you haven't registered to vote yet, REGISTER NOW.
