Douglas Brinkley on America's reaction: "The cycle will move on"

As Congress continues to debate the implications of striking Syria, "Piers Morgan Live" invited Douglas Brinkley to offer his perspective.

Filling in for regular host Piers Morgan, John Berman of "Early Start" asked his guest about the implications of the decision soon to come from Washington:

"If Congress doesn't support the bombing, it doesn't happen and theoretically things get worse," he noted. "Whose fault will this be?"

Brinkley said the blame would falling squarely on the shoulders of the man in the Oval Office:

"It will probably be the president's fault if that's the way you want to look at it, but I also am not so doomsday that this is the end of the Obama administration," he told Berman.

Continuing his response, the presidential historian referenced the recent past:

"I remember when the gun debate was going on and President [Barack] Obama gave a big speech and we didn't get a result on gun control," he reflected. "The cycle will move on. If he doesn't get the vote, it will be a very grim couple of weeks, maybe months for the president, but by next spring, I'm not convinced everybody's going to be talking about Syria again."

Watch the clip for more of John Berman's interview with Douglas Brinkley as he touched upon Obama's "moral leadership," and for the next edition of "Piers Morgan Live," watch CNN every night at 9.

    9 09 2013

    Program after Program on the “Public Broadcasting System” there is a MAJOR COVERUP.
    Whether the flagship PBS News Hour, This Week in Washington, or Inside Washington — all dominated by Syria Friday evening – there was NO mention of how the it is the Israelis and the Saudis who have been pushing hard for WAR with Iran and Syria for years already!
    That’s right! There was not a single question or comment about the critical roles of Israel and Saudi Arabia, each for their own reasons of course, relentlessly pushing the US to war with IRAN and SYRIA. And there was only one passing reference at the end of This Week — just a few seconds without any follow-up of any kind — about the critical role of the ....
