Cry baby Chris Matthews accidentally tells the truth

Posted by   + Show Post

 While crying about Obama's lackluster performance in the debate last night Chris Matthews accidentally told the thruth about MSNBC.

"Tonight wasn't an MSNBC debate tonight, was it?" Chris Matthews said after the first Obama-Romney presidential debate concluded on Wednesday night.

"I don't know what he was doing out there. He had his head down, he was enduring the debate rather than fighting it. Romney, on the other hand, came in with a campaign. He had a plan, he was going to dominate the time, he was going to be aggressive, he was going to push the moderator around, which he did effectively, he was going to relish the evening, enjoying it," Matthews said.

"Here's my question for Obama: I know he likes saying he doesn't watch cable television but maybe he should start. Maybe he should start. I don't know how he let Romney get away with the crap he throughout tonight about Social Security," Matthews complained.

Matthews then demanded that President Obama start watching cable news, specifically his program.

"Where was Obama tonight? He should watch -- well, not just Hardball, Rachel, he should watch you, he should watch the Reverend Al [Sharpton], he should watch Lawrence. He would learn something about this debate. There's a hot debate going on in this country. You know where it's been held? Here on this network is where we're having the debate," Matthews said.

"We have our knives out," Matthews said, admitting his network is trying their best to defend Obama and his policies. "We go after the people and the facts. What was he doing tonight? He went in there disarmed."

(continued)

Matthews admit that at MSNBC they attack the people, and the facts, that don't agree with their narrative.  He also admits, with encouragement from Rachel Maddow and Ed Schultz, that MSNBC is in the tank for Obama.   He also indicates that the MSNBC moderators woud be less than impartial, taking a more active role int he debate... perhaps he should learn about debates and the role of the moderator.  

However, his accidental truth is hidden in the litany of lies about Romney and the way he dominated the time and bullied the moderator, when in fact he was respectful.  If you can stomach Chris Matthews in his whiny meltdown the video shows shows it live on air... a far cry from "I've got tingles running down my leg".

Quoting Karen_Dover:

That's actually not true. The impending tax increases are large, but not anywhere near as large as the largest tax increase in history, which happened right after World War II, to pay for the war. It was Rush Limbaugh who originally stated it was the largest tax increase in history, and we all know he's an idiot. http://www.factcheck.org/2012/07/biggest-tax-increase-in-history/

Quoting Aislinn:


Quoting sweet-a-kins:

Romney came on and lied. His own advisor already admitted his plan will NOT cover pre existing conditions

 Just like Barry is telling people this is affordable health care, but in reality his lawyers argued that is was, in fact, a tax in front of SCOTUS? And, in reality, this will be the largest TAX ever to be FORCED upon the American people? Seriously, now... 


 Ok. Does the SECOND largest tax increase, ever, make you feel better? It sure as hell does not make me feel better. I mean, how ridiculous. THAT is what you choose to pick on? Not the FACT that he is calling it affordable health care, when it will be the largest tax increase the last three generations have ever seen, so far? You bring up a tax from WW2 when most of us did not exist?  Really? So, fine. Second largest. Still just as bad and Barry is still lying through his teeth. That fact sure as hell has not changed, now has it?

WHy anyone watches either of those "News" shows is a mystery.



Don't watch them.



Quoting asfriend:

You seem like a sweet person, but you really have no clue here, at least look at some alternate sources, even Chris Mathews doesn't think MSNBC is a news channel, as he made clear last night, if anyone didn't already know.




Quoting MomTiara19:



Good morning,




I watched the debate last night and I understand what Chris Mathews(love Chris so passionate:) was saying.I am a democrat and understand what strategy Obama was coming from.He was calm,cool,and presidential.




Obama was told not to attack Romney because he would appear to aggressive,unstable,and unpresidential.Remember Obama is the president until the end of his term and must appear so.




Romney held alot of his policies under wraps in detail which is a great strategy for throwing his opponent off at the debate.Obama has always showed his plans in detail for our country openely.Romney threw out his plans and policies in a more generalized point at the debate which left the president having to think quickly and figure out and explain why Romneys figures and fluff still dont match or add up.Romneys approach was just to attack and look more confident.....never mind the full details.Just look at me and believe my big bold ideas so I can get the ax out if I am president.




Romney did alot of flip floping...and to me seemed inconsistent.Are you for medicaid or not,medicaire or not,education or not ...first you arent then you are....his treatment plan is Obama care just with a different name that he created in MA.




If you noticed Obama never once attacked Romney and has alot of ammunition left to do so.You will see a very different debate next time.I feel Obama will bring out the big guns in the next two debates.Romney showed his radical plans.

I think he was saying that they go after facts to collect them and display them, not to find facts to destroy

I mean, the ACA is going to increase taxes, but most likely not for YOU, since most people don't fall into the "wealthy" bracket. The taxes increased will be a medicare surplus tax for wealthy individuals, tanning bed taxes, taxes on pharmaceutical companies, and levied fines against people who opt out of buying insurance. It's also being paid for by cutting wasteful payments to Medicare and Medicaid Advantage plans which have been overpaid for years, and decreasing payments to hospitals (which hospitals have already agreed to, because the mandate will ensure that they will be serving less uninsured individuals).

It was win or go home for Romney- There's your answer.

Separation of church and state is for the protection of BOTH church and state.
Leading with hate and intolerance only leads to MORE hate and intolerance.

Also, speaking of lying through his TEETH- Mitt Romney brought up the Independent Advisory Board for the ACA, calling it " a board that can tell people ultimately what treatments they're going to receive" which is TOTAL BS. The Independent Payment Advisory Board is set up to control Medicare spending growth annually, not to cherry pick patients' treatments. He is totally preying on elderly people's fears.
