Dan Rather: Obama's Opponents 'Want to Cut His Heart Out and Throw His Liver to the Dogs' DAN RATHER: All of these things we’ve said about what the president could do, should do, might have, could have, but the central thing to keep in mind is his opponents - you talk about taking them out to dinner, making nice with them - these people politically want to cut his heart out and throw his liver to the dogs. That does make it very, very difficult to come on nice to them. CHRIS MATTHEWS, HOST: Yeah, it causes indigestion over dinner don’t you think? KATTY KAY, BBC: Is that what they do in Texas Dan? MATTHEWS: By the way, I’m with you Dan because I don’t know how much, I do think he doesn't enjoy the company of his fellow politicians. Excuse me, Mr. President, you’re one of them.
