I think Matthews has lost that loving feeling towards Obamunism.
Good Freaking grief, ALL, and I mean ALL Matthews, and most of the rest of the MSNBS crew does is vilify Republicans, the Tea Party, Conservatives, Southerners, gun owners, and so on. Yet they have the unmitigated gall to whine that Republicans are mean to the Obamassiah?
Again, the hypocrisy is as thick as the ice in Antarctica. Note Matthews and his guests NEVER admit that Republicans are differing with the president, many of them quite respectfully, on issues and ideals. No, they just attack the Right for daring to dissent. I thought dissent was patriotic? Isn’t that what the Left parroted during the Bush presidency?
And by insightful I mean he sounds like a lunatic having a meltdown
….Chris “Crazy Legs” Matthews. Yes, really
Matthews Takes Break from Calling Opponents Racist to Lecture America on Civility
Okay, that headline is a little misleading. MSNBC host Chris Matthews never really took a break from calling his opponents racists and paranoids while engaging on a media blitz promoting his book about civility and amity in politics.
Just for kicks, let us review some of the civility Matthews practices
They’re “almost traitors,” Matthews said of conservatives who believe that the Internal Revenue Service, an agency created in 1913 and which recently admitted to targeting conservative groups in order to limit their political efficacy, should be abolished. “First of all, the right-wing are crazy,” he said in June. “What they’re saying about getting rid of the IRS is insane.”
“It seems there’s a very interesting compelling continuing effort to delegitimize this president,” theMSNBC host added in August. His evidence: conservatives who refer to Obama as “Obama.”
They refer to him as ‘Obama.’ They don’t say the ‘the president.’ They don’t say the ‘a law.’ They don’t even speak the language we normally speak in civilized political debate.”
“When are we going to have the book we’ve been waiting for, Killing O’Reilly?” Matthews said in October, jokingly envisioning the assassination of a rival cable news host with whom he disagrees. This moment was particularly satisfying. Matthews made this statement while appearing on HBO with Bill Maher to promote his book on civility.
“I think it’s hatred,” Matthews opined while summarizing the thinking that motivates conservatives in Congress this week. “I don’t think it’s politics.” Just yesterday, perturbed with conservatives who dare refer to themselves as “the American people” while justifying their opposition to the president’s programs, “Do they still count blacks as three-fifths?”
And those are only a few of his nasty personal and partisan attacks.
Civility he says…………..
Asshole! I suppose he never noticed when Democrats attacked George W. Bush just because he was from a different party?
Via The Hill:
People are willing to demonize Obama because he’s from a different party, Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) said.
Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) said Tuesday that there are about 30 to 40 Republicans in Congress who refuse to recognize the legitimacy of Obama’s presidency and are seeking to erase everything that’s happened during his administration.
King made the remarks in a discussion with Chris Matthews on MSNBC’s Hardball, after the host asked how many Republicans would like to “erase [Obama’s] record as if he was never here.” […]
“This is a very dangerous aspect to our government,” King said. “The fact that we have people who are willing to demonize the president of the United States because he’s from a different party.”
Way to prostate yourself on MSNBS Rep. King. Gutless wonder! I suppose we can expect King to be doing ads for knee pads soon.
Y’all, (the proper way to address a group of people), Know that Ted Cruz, and a few other Conservatives are fighting like Hell to derail Obamacare. Naturally, this has interrupted MSNBS host Chris “Crazy Legs” Matthews a great deal. Weasel Zippers has the sad, but all too predictable result, a Matthews meltdown, it is like a regular meltdown, only bigger and more pathetic. As a public service I, who am merely a “blogger”, will translate Matthews diatribe.
Chris Matthews let loose Tuesday night with what he really thinks of Republican senator Ted Cruz, the face of the defund Obamacare movement. Matthews and Democratic congressman Jim Moran called him dangerous, with Matthews gong so far as to declare he is a threat to the entirety of the American political system. […]
Now, when Matthews says Cruz is dangerous, what he really means is that Cruz is Reaganesque, and that Matthews is deathly afraid of Cruz because Cruz, like Reagan has the ability to speak directly to the people, thus influencing the people to understand how bad Obamacare is. Matthews, being an elitist, naturally detests any and all who would oppose his Neo-Marxist ideology.
He recalled how Cruz’s political debut was his accusations about Chuck Hagel‘s extremist ties in a very “Joe McCarthy fashion,” calling Cruz “totally and utterly destructive” and dismissing the idea he’s educated a single person about the health care law.
Whenever a leftist like Matthews invokes the name McCarthy they are attempting to smear a Conservative who has an effective message. Do not allow yourself to be taken in by this hateful rhetoric. Remember this Leftists attack Conservatives not because they disagree with them, which they of course do, but because they FEAR them!
Moran said Cruz is “ignorant of the facts” and predicted he won’t be able to accomplish much after these “antics.” Matthews noticed how Cruz is “sneering” every time he talks about an issue, calling the Texas senator a “threat” to the American political system, and while he admitted using the word “terrorist” would be a little strong, he did leave it dangling over the conversation.
What Matthews and Moran, who is so crooked he has to screw his pants on are really doing here is attempting to further smear Cruz by calling him ignorant and accusing Cruz of “antics”. How rich, Matthews, who engages in antics and hyperbole like no other throwing that charge at Ted Cruz.
Look, all you really have to know about Matthews is that he looks like Newt Gingrich’s retarded little brother, and jabbers like an incoherent drunk on a bar stool at the diviest bar you can imagine. No, wait, that is not fair. An incoherent drunk makes more sense that Matthews does.
In short, Cruz scares the living Hell out of the Left, and the douche bags that make up the GOP establishment.
