[See NewsBusters for more.] CNN Newsroom host and former Obama State Department official Jim Sciutto and former Clinton Defense Secretary William Cohen came up with a new reason to support the Democrats' massive partisan spending bill on Thursday: American foreign policy depends on it.
If that seems like a leap in logic, Sciutto tried to explain, "You know the importance of the president's domestic agenda as he comes here to this key international summit. The president has said as much to lawmakers. He needs these plans in place, not only to have a climate change plan because that's top of the agenda here at G-20 and next week in Scotland, but also to show that the U.S. democratic system can work."
