Having taken huge heat for dropping “Jerusalem is capital of Israel” language from the DNC platform, President Obama and the Chicago Gang ordered it returned. But nobody bothered to tell the massive number of anti-Israel delegates, and when Antonio Villaraigosa called for a voice vote approving the amendment to the p,afford, it clearly failed three times, at which point Villaraigosa invoked the Chicago Rules clause and simply ordained the amendment as passed.
A true debacle and revealing on so many levels –the precariousness of the Jewish vote, the genuine anti-Israel sentiment on the floor, and the disregard for the rules when inconvenient.
I will have to play that audio a few dozen times on the show today
