Did you hear Dan Rather on Chris Matthews today?

Former CBS anchor Dan Rather said on the Chris Matthews show

"Listen he's a nice person, he's very articulate" this is what's been used against him, "but he couldn't sell watermelons if it, you gave him the state troopers to flag down the traffic."

He's right president Obama sucks.Another thought is why isn't Rather being ripped apart like ANY conservative would be for the watermellon comment? hmmmm

  • Your link has been removed already.  Try this one:

    Or you can watch it directly on Chris Matthew's website (to prove this is not edited or faked) but you have to sit through the whole show

  • Chris Matthews, isn't he the one who gets little tingles up & down his leg? Don't watch him. And I wouldn't think that Dan Rather is all that conservative, but I don't really know. I just know he is MEDIA, and we all know how much the MEDIA hearts O. But I'm sure that someone will take offense to it, before too long.

  • Dan Rather is very liberal and no I didn't see it because that would mean I would have to torture myself by watching Chris Matthews. Every time I watch his show I get very irritated.

  • Dan Rather has been known for his liberal bias.I am wondering if the one's who cry 'racism' over everything and nothing in msm will go at him for this comment since he shows liberal bias rather then conservative.I say if he had conservative bias they'd of been all over him quick as has been the track record so far.

  • It's not racist if you are a liberal.

  • Sounds like something Harry Reid or VICE PRESIDENT Joe Biden would say!!! LOL

    Those two just can't get over the fact that Obama is so "clean and well spoken" you know, for an African American man!!!

    Man, if a Republican said that, they would have been skinned alive on the spot!!

    I love double standards!!! (sarcasm)

  • Dan had better be careful. Some wacky person will make a big deal over him using watermelons in his analogy. But, this may be the only thing I have agreed with Dan on in a few years.

  • Hey, we can call it "Watermelongate!!" (A spin off of Dan's infamous "memogate" scandal that pushed him into early retirement! LOL

  • there are plenty of liberal racists.

    Its just a conservative talking point that there is no more racism., just people making excuses for bad behavior

    but quick to jump on that band wagon when its not one of yours that is being called out for a RACIST statement
