Skip to comments.MSNBC host Chris Matthews claims Romney's criticism of Obama is Unconstitutional
Posted on 10/20/2012 10:22:00 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
MSNBC host Chris Matthews demonstrated not only his ignorance of the U.S. Constitution, but also revealed the potential danger of his fanatical loyalty to Barack Obama. In a discussion concerning the recent presidential debate between Mitt Romney and President Obama, Matthews made the completely outrageous statement about Romney:
"I don't think he understands the Constitution of the United States... He's the president of the United States. You don't say, "you'll get your chance."'
This statement could be one of the most dangerous statements ever made by a member of the press in the history of United States. Matthews is not only demonstrating his slavish devotion to the president, but his willingness to promote totalitarianism in the mainstream press. For that is exactly what the radical MSNBC television host seems to be advocating when he claims that it is against the law to challenge the president in a political debate.
One must wonder if this type of sentiment is common among the mainstream press, and if Mr. Matthews and his liberal media friends think that whatever Barack Obama dictates is constitutional. There has been not a peep by the mainstream media about what many claim have been potential violations of the Constitution during the past three years. Everythingfrom claiming executive privilege for documents in the Fast and Furious scandal, to the many executive orders issued personally by Obama, or the thousands of new regulations issued by government agencieshave all come under scrutiny for their constitutionality. But Matthews and his liberal media friends have given their "messiah" a pass by either dismissing the opposition's claims or simply ignoring the stories altogether.
A statement like Matthews' is indicative of the liberal media, ignorant of the law and demonstrating complete devotion to Barack Obama. But this dangerous mix will soon be nullified as the American people will rise up in November and send this pack of would-be tyrants packing. Mitt Romney will most likely hand Barack Obama or a major whooping in the presidential election, and there is nothing that the Democrats and their liberal media allies can do about it.
Wildly despicable statements about the supremacy of President Obama or his legal protection from criticism have not been heard from the lips of humans beings since the old Soviet Union, and Matthews should be fired for it. The American press plays a vital role in the defense of freedom from tyranny, and Chris Matthews is violating that sacred trust. He may believe that Barack Obama is infallible and that it is against the law to criticize the president, but it will be interesting to see if he still believes this when Mitt Romney is elected president in November.
hey matthews you complete ignoramus, obama puts his pants on one leg at a time just like anybody else. he is not a king or a dictator much as he would like to be. he is not even a pope. he is totally fallible and has to follow all the rules same as anybody else
oh good grief, who doesn’t think this bitch Mathews isn’t in a state of strange love (read queer as they come) with Obama.
He would flop over a table before the water boiled.
Guess he missed the nastiness PRESIDENT Bush was shown.
Even the Marxist referred to President Bush, during debate two as “George Bush,” so piss off too Barack Hussein.
Piss off, Chris Matthews, you drunkard, slobbering, unconscionable, Marxist adoring idiot.
Move to Kenya so you can continue your Homie Duh Klown act in honor of your excellency....erh, Density...
Chris is a bad joke. And,nthe antithesis of intelligent, inquiring journalism. (Why is he still employed in the media?)
Isn’t tingling in the legs a symptom of Parkinson’s disease . . . ?
It’s a wonder he hasn’t followed Olbermann into obscurity already. He’s already just as rabid while on-air at MSDNC.
He and his guest agreed that it was an outrage for a citizen to ever speak to a president that way. And that deference should always be shown, even when opposing him in a debate.
Such a mentality sees him as more than a president. To them he is a dear leader, a fuhrer, a transcendent figure. They would lie for him, the would commit any fraud to assist him, and they would kill his opponents (us) if they could only figure out how to get away with it. Such servile worship is the behavior of a cult. America has never been in a more dangerous moment.

Mathews has become positively unhinged. Criticizing the president is as American as apple pie and baseball.
Which one is Chris Matthews?
A wise woman. In like advice my Buddhist teacher told me "sometimes the most compassionate thing you can do for someone is kick the living s#!t out of them."
Matthews has totally lost it. He just couldn’t take all the pressure.
He’s in another room receiving electro-shock therapy and a Mani/Pedi.
In an ironic twist one of the most pointed jokes about Chris Matthews' derangement over 0bama was told by 0bama himself.
Hitler would have loved him.
I don’t know, but I think I can see Barack Obama in the mid background...
I never watch MSNBC but isn’t that Ed Schultz on the far left?
I have never listened to such an irrational dupe, before....he takes the cake ....and he can take zero, too, and shove him back down in the toilet stall where Chris can get down low for his god. They all are like Sugar Keynes.
Bohemian Grove orgie types with sacrificial altars to Baal.
They are mentally ill and severely warped. God help us get rid of these creeps.
Here’s another moron along the same lines:
Romney disrespects the office of presidency
Hitler would’ve pinned a pink triangle on him and shipped him off to Buchenwald.
Either he says these crazy things for attention to boost ratings, or he really is crazy. I’m not sure which.
This is quite consistent with that Carolina school teacher that said criticizing the president is illegal.
Can't tell, but the dark-haired one in the middle is Rachel.
I noticed that MSNBC viewership is increasing.
I am so offended at the lies and distortions when I tune in - who are these people?
Perhaps people think its a comedy show?
