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.
We know that sometimes we bloggers watch too much MSNBS. We watch for three reasons. First, MSNBS has the best grove of Trees of Low Hanging Blogging Fruit. Second, we watch to see which Leftist anchor’s head will explode first. And yes, we watch to see that moment when the men in white coats come take Chris Matthews away. For me there is a fourth reason, my shameless crush on Tamron Hall. Damn that woman has the most gorgeous face. I cannot help it, I am completely smitten.
But, all that race baiting on MSNBS can have side effects, like cussing at your TV, saying WTF repeatedly, and yes, headaches. But there is good news folks. Now Excedrin has created an answer to our MSNBS-induced headaches.
Here is Crazy Legs Matthews at his best, which really means his worst!
Oh shut up you babbling idiot! You race-obsessed fool!
According to the New York Times, MSNBS pays Matthews 5 million a year to play a stammering buffoon on TV every night
Chris Matthews, the usually garrulous host of “Hardball” on MSNBC, has quietly signed a new long-term contract to remain with the cable network through the next election, signaling that he had quit entertaining any plans to run for a Senate seat.
The deal is for at least four years. Financial terms were not disclosed, and neither side would confirm whether MSNBC had won a reduction in salary for the host, as it had been reported to be seeking. Previous reports put his annual salary at about $5 million.
One executive involved in the negotiations said, “Whether he took a slight cut or got a slight raise, it’s nobody’s business.”
Phil Griffin, the president of MSNBC, said the deal would guarantee that Mr. Matthews would “be around to cover the next presidential election.” Mr. Matthews, known for his combative interviews, said he was happy to be staying on. “I love what I do,” he said. “It’s transparent. You can see it in my face.”
Oh yeah Chris, we can see something on your face, usually insanity. I guess it is true, the big money is on TV. But I cannot fathom anyone paying Matthews anything. In my years in the restaurant/bar business I have heard more coherent talk from people who were falling down drunk. Matthews really is, as Stacey McCain describes him, “The 5 million dollar idiot”
Leftists who get worked up about the Growing Gap Between Rich and Poor really ought to organize an #OccupyChrisMatthews movement to protest this truthless waste of TV time whose NBC contract reportedly pays him $5 million a year. If I took notice every time Chris Matthews makes a complete idiot of himself, I’d never have time to write about anything else. He’s a human Stupidity Factory, with no internal mental filter that warns him when he is about to emit a steaming heap of senseless gibberish.
Yep, that pretty much sums Matthews up. And while his fellow MSNBS hosts’s willingness to say anything regardless of facts is equally despicable, Matthews appears to be, as I like to say, a genuine idiot
Look, this isn’t about ideology. Chris Hayes and Rachel Maddow are more fanatical than Matthews, and I disagree with them on damned near any issue you could name. But Hayes and Maddow — and for that matter, the insufferably smug Lawrence O’Donnell — are intelligent, articulate people. Evil, yes, but intelligent and articulate.
On the other hand, transcending all partisan differences, no one with an IQ above room temperature takes Chris Matthews seriously.
How bad is he? I’d rather watch Martin Bashir, except for the purely comic value of Matthews’s idiotic utterances. And this past week, Matthews managed to say something so incomprehensibly stupid, it was remarkable even for him. The context was the swirl of scandals afflicting the Obama administration. Matthews first suggested that criticism of Susan Rice was raaaaacist:
“Here they are, the old white guys, kicking the hell out of another African-American candidate for something.” . . .
“The discourse coming from that side, I don’t use that word liar. I don’t like it being used. Because it gets to motive and you don’t know what is in another person’s heart. How do these people get away with talking like this, I mean anywhere, even on Fox?”
Look, to be fair, MSNBS has hitched its ratings wagon (picture a wagon, with no driver, engulfed in flames as it drives off the edge of a 1,000 foot cliff) to racism, or at least to calling every Republican on earth a racist. Matthews though take sit to another level. His rantings reveal the depth of his Racial Obsession Syndrome, and, apparently, the intensity of the Obamagasms that strike him so often
“Peter, again to you. Why do they get the idea, if it isn’t ethnic, and I’ll just leave the possibility that it’s not. Why do they just assume evil on the part of Obama?” Mr. Matthews asked. “I mean he’s raised, his whole life has been crystal clear and clean as a whistle and transparent. We know his whole life through all the great excellent education he’s had. The good pro-bono work he’s done through his life. He’s never been a money grubber. He’s never done anything wrong in his life, legally ethically, whatever. His family is picture-perfect. The way he’s raised those daughters. Everything is clean as a whistle. And yet, they just refer to him as evil. They just refer to him as a liar. I’ve got to believe it’s ethnic with these people. They just got a problem with this guy being president, is there any other evidence to justify why they keep calling him a bad man? And that’s what they do.”
For that kind of idiotic rambling they pay him 5 million a year? The only way that makes any sense if if he works on a base salary of say, $500,000, and receives a bonus of $1000 every time he utters something completely irrational, incoherent, moronic, or idiotic. At the rate Matthews spews stupidity, that math might add up. Let’s see here
Base salary $500,000
$1000 bonus per idiotic statement x 4,500 idiotic statements per year
Total salary $5,000,000
He even pronounces it incorrectly, as if he has never even heard the word before. He does this on purpose to make it seem like a non story.
MSNBC has signed Chris Matthews to a new, long-term contract with the channel, TVNewser has learned.
As part of the new deal, however, he will be ending “The Chris Matthews Show,” a syndicated public affairs show produced out of the NBC News DC bureau. The final edition of the program will air July 21. The half-hour show typically aired on Sunday mornings, though not every local market carried it. The show has been produced by NBC since 2002.
Matthews says he is ending the syndicated show to focus on “Hardball,” his books and his long-form TV docs.
“There are limits to what I can do in a week,” Matthews says in a statement. “Henceforth, I intend to concentrate any time left over from “Hardball” on writing books like the one I’m committed to now on the relationship between Tip O’Neill and Ronald Reagan, that and producing documentaries on history and politics.”
Stacy McCain lays into Crazy legs Matthews and his penchant for being RONGG!
You can call Chris Matthews anything you want — “dimwitted political hack” would be entirely appropriate — but please don’t insult an entire profession by calling Chris Matthews a “journalist.”
Very true. Matthews is a hack, and always has been. McCain explains Crazy Legs’ latest bout with News Speculation Syndrome
On March 30, Kaufman County, Texas, district attorney Mike McLelland and his wife were shot to death at their home. Five days later, Chris Matthews invited Mark Potok of the Southern Poverty Law Center onto MSNBC to promote speculation that McLelland’s murder was committed by the Aryan Brotherhood prison gang.
In other words, the important thing about this crime — the thing that made it worth eight minutes of national network air time — was that it gave Chris Matthews a chance to stoke the paranoia of MSNBC viewers with the bogeyman specter of dangerously violent racists who (as all MSNBC viewers know) are the core constituency of the Republican Party.
Of course, as is often the case, Matthews jumped to conclusions. In this case he wanted any excuse to bash Senator Ted Cruz and any other Republican to oppose Dear Leader’s Leftist agenda. And, again, Matthews got it completely WRONG!
Fast-forward 11 days, and Chris Matthews is completely discredited by the latest headlines:
- KTVT: Sources: JP Eric Williams To Be Charged With Murders In Kaufman County
- Dallas Morning News: Ex-justice of peace is prime suspect in Kaufman DA slayings
- Dallas Morning News: Complex picture arises of ex-Kaufman justice of peace eyed in case
- London Daily Mail: Mystery Texas killings ‘solved’: Disgraced court official to be charged with murders of Texas district attorney, his wife and assistant DA after they convicted him of theft
- Pat Dollard: Update: Disgraced Government Official, Not Aryan Brotherhood, Killed Texas Prosecutors
What? It wasn’t scary white supremacists highlighted in an eight-minute MSNBC segment? Nobody that Mark Potok warned us about? Not even a Tea Party member? No, a disgraced lawyer with a personal grudge:
And of course, now that the truth is out, Matthews will not man up and correct his fantasy will he? Hell no! Like many leftists, Matthews makes wild accusations to smear people he disagrees with, and when he is proven wrong? He just moves on to the next smear. That is what is most fascinating about Leftist walk behinders like Obamagasm Boy Matthews. The thought never occurs to them that if they must resort to lying to win an argument, then they are on the wrong side of life. Maybe it would be more fitting to say that Matthews is on the wrong side of reality.
Speaking of being on the wrong side of reality. Look at the screen cap Stacy got of Crazy legs and Potok The guy honestly looks like the guy who gets cut off at noon at your local dive bar, you know the guy, he will buy you a drink the “next time” if you get him one today. He is also the douche nozzle who demands the bartender pour him a “good shot”, when he never ever tips.
MSNBC’s Chris Matthews said Friday that the National Rifle Association wants “guns on demand, like you’re buying a Hershey bar.”
“That’s the way they want to do it, guns on demand, like you’re buying a Hershey bar. That’s it. It’s a Hershey bar. I think I’d like one. I’m going to try that. You know, no background check? What are you, crazy? Okay, that’s the hideous argument they make, check out the guy that’s going to guard the kids, but don’t check out the guy who’s buying the gun to go after the kids,” Matthews said referring to the NRA.
Is this buffoon actually saying the NRA does not want checks on people buying guns to shoot up schools? Good grief he will say anything. Matthews stopped being anything remotely resembling a a journalist long ago. He is now nothing more than a deranged second-rate shock jock.
Actually Chris, it was the NRA that got background checks in place to begin with. You Cannot buy a gun from a gun dealer without undergoing a background check. Very few people who fail those checks ever get prosecuted, which the NRA points out often.
Matthews is nothing more than THAT drunk asshole at the end of the bar now. You know the guy. Sloppy drunk, mumbling incoherently, and asking everyone to buy him a shot. Except Matthews is not even drunk on the air. He does not find his inner asshole in a bottle. Matthews comes by his naturally.
Someone should buy this tool a dictionary, or maybe better yet someone could read the definition of racism to him
RUSH LIMBAUGH: That’s an interesting take that the President inspires it, inspires racism. It may well be the case. So Obama’s presence inspires this guy to go all divisive, all racist and start jamming on the Republicans for wanting blacks in the back of the bus and women back in the kitchen when he can’t name a single person who does. But the President of the United States, you may be right, may have inspired that in this preacher.
(END VIDEO CLIP)
MATTHEWS: Well actually, Rushbo, racism is the belief that one race – whites – should rule all others. Get your definitions straight.
OK Matthews, here you go. From Dictionary.com
1.a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human races determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving theidea that one’s own race is superior and has the right to rule others.2.a policy, system of government, etc., based upon or fostering such a doctrine discrimination.
3.hatred or intolerance of another race or other races.
Seriously how? All this buffoon does is babble incoherently
MSNBC host Chris Matthews and two guests on Wednesday investigated what they identified as strains of homophobia, xenophobia, and racism within the tea party. One of the guests was a filmmaker who is investigating the phenomenon of African-American conservatives who sympathize with the tea party. Matthews was vexed by the existence of black conservatives. He expressed surprise that African-Americans, who were dependent on the federal government for civil rights legislation, would support an ideology that backs state’s rights.
Matthews opened the segment congratulating MSNBC for their efforts at trying to show “the real face of the tea party” which he said was characterized by racial rhetoric and outright racist imagery.
“My study suggests that there is a strain of racism in the tea party,” said University of Washington assistant professor Christopher Parker. “There’s definitely a racist strain, but it goes beyond racism. It goes to homophobia and xenophobia as well, Chris.”
Matthews asked if tea partiers longed for a “dreamy nostalgia” of a time when there were “no gays, where blacks were slaves, where Mexicans were in Mexico.”
Good Freaking Grief!
….it would be Crazy legs Matthews and the rest of the gang of ass hats at MSNBS. They are the ones constantly throwing accusations of racism around, trying to demonize Conservatives. They just can’t help it I guess. People often accuse others of what they themselves are guilty of. Read what Matthews says about Sen. Ted Cruz and tell me he is not deflecting.
CHRIS MATTHEWS: Lindsey Graham, and so was John McCain, not on this program but this week. It’s about tactics. Let’s take it back. I don’t know the man’s personality. I know he’s got an interesting background, he’s a brilliant gay in many ways, but the tactics. You know, I watched him in those hearings and I saw Joe McCarthy, I saw the way he was prosecuting the case, the way he was putting up evidence, innuendo, guilt by association. If some spokesperson, some flack for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Tehran, says he thinks we can do business with this guy more than some hawkish neo-con, is that indictment against him? But it turned into an indictment. I think it’s really being unfair and I think the Senate is going to circle the wagons and say this guy’s going in.
Maybe we should start calling him Chris “McCarthy” Matthews?
That is, after all, what PC is all about, it is also about thought control, intimidation, speech control, censorship, and creating an environment where the Left cannot be challenged. Stacy McCain elaborates
Yesterday, I saw Chris Matthews on MSNBC’s Hardball rant for 10 minutes about Sen. Ted Cruz as a latter-day Joe McCarthy for having dared to ask questions about possible ties between Hagel and foreign governments. Chuck Hagel isn’t just some random citizen who has been grabbed off the street for interrogation about his loyalties.
No, Chuck Hagel is under consideration as Secretary of Defense, and the Senate therefore has every right — indeed, it has a solemn duty — to investigate his associations with groups that seem rather secretive about their funding.
If I could give the biggest reason I started writing op-ed columns 17 years ago, and then created this venture with Ed Daley, I would say it was to stop the erosion of our liberty! PC is the number one source of that erosion, and I will be damned if I sit by and allow that to happen!
Why did I not watch the coronation yesterday? Because Monday was only the beginning of the ass kissing the media is going to engage in for Dear Leader. I fear it will get so bad the FCC might deem the media coverage unfit for anything except pay-per-view.
Others who chronicled the event now have stains on their pants from the orgasmic gush. Chris Matthews emitted his usual effusion of idiocy, and over on the Third-Place Cable News Network With Lower Ratings Than MSNBC (The One That People Only Watch When They’re Stuck in Airports), Jim Acosta was trying to out-gush Matthews:
“You know, I feel like I should pinch myself right now, Wolf. I can’t believe I have this vantage point of history in the making . . . It’s good to be the President. It’s almost like being a rock star on every street corner of Washington on this day.”
Our nation is being destroyed, and the press corps is reduced to the role of partisan pom-pom girls for The Great Destroyer. Meanwhile, the alleged leaders of the opposition have no clue of how to rescue themselves from their current condition of helpless impotence. The search for any reason to smile amid this catastrophe — which I blame entirely on the gross ineptitude of the overpaid dimwit fratboys running the Republican Party — turns up precious few nuggets of encouragement:
All I can say is SIGH!
