Chris Matthews: itís our money
Big Bureaucracy ^ | September 22nd, 2010 | Ellie Velinska

Posted on 09/22/2010 1:00:47 PM PDT by Big Bureaucracy

President Obama wants to tax-hike Chris Matthews and other rich folks in America. The MSNBC host is probably not one of those liberals who support the tax-hike while hoping that the Republicans will kill it. Matthews probably just can’t wait to start paying more to the IRS.

However the host of Hardball is not happy that President Obama keeps talking about these tax-hikes in a manner that suggests that he will be sending checks to Matthews, when in fact Matthews will be sending checks to Obama:

Stop saying that giving people tax cuts is giving people money. It`s their money! A tax cut is when the government doesn`t take our money. It`s an important distinction.

Yes, indeed! It`s an important distinction. Unfortunately Chris Matthews wasn’t so picky in terminology when President Obama called the expanding of the Earned Income Tax Credit a ‘tax-cut’.

Many folks in the USA receive a check from the government with EIC ‘refund’ when in fact they did not pay any federal income tax. Obama calls those ‘tax-cuts for the working families’, when in fact it is a kind of welfare or ‘stimulus’ at best.

Matthews did not outline the important distinction in this case. He just let President Obama call the government hand-outs: ‘tax-cuts’.

So the folks who received the hundreds and the thousands of dollars of EIC ‘tax-cuts’ now think that this is what ‘the rich’ will be getting – a check from the IRS like they did.

The IRS will accept donations from anyone willing to do so.

Matthews is right on this one (it’s our money)...but he still reminds me of the creepy old uncle that still hugs everyone just a little too long at Thanksgiving.

How about 100% tax rate on all earnings over $1,000,000 Chris? After all there is only so much you can eat or wear.

George W. Bush campaigned for tax cuts by saying it was the people’s money, not the government’s money. And he wanted us to keep more of our own money. And the liberals gave him lots of grief about it.

But now that a good liberal like Mathews is saying that it’s our money to start with, maybe it’s okay to talk about people keeping more of their own money, individual liberty including controlling your own money, etc. etc.

He is about to be tax-hiked and suddenly he understands - it is our money - not government’s

Maybe this time it’s going to be HIS money. Or someone he’s close to.

We need to stop calling what we’re trying to do as “extending the Bush tax cuts”

We should start calling it “stopping the Obama tax hikes”.

Winning the war of words is winning half the battle. Our side simply does not pay nearly as much attention to this as the other side.

Matthews was playing a clip of O'Donnell’s speech made the other day, and he said he was, “Not unimpressed” by it, and then went on saying positive things about her and the way she handled the Witch stories. I couldn't believe what I was hearing from Matthews.

There has been a distinct change in Matthews since the DE primary. He has made several “WTF, Chris Matthews said that!” statements since then.

I’m not sure if the change is genuine, or if he suddenly figured out which way the gravy train was going and decided he better jump on board.

Just my guess, but this POS Matthews is leading the MSM d-bags in the tearing down of St. Barry. The way I see it: They realized a while ago what a fraud this guy was, but thought they could ride it out. Now...at that town hall meeting with the nice, normal, middle class woman (that happened to be black)....it's officially okay to throw him under the bus. Maybe I'm being overly optimistic, but, what on earth else are they going to do? We are not the only ones who know Barry is imploding...the media know and they have to report reality at some point.

Maybe he's figured out that if you keep turning left, you get to Venezuela.

Not sure about that. Madcow and Olberdork are still obsessed with C-street and Koch Brothers conspiracies. HOPELESS

There is a change since Boehner bluffed he may agree with the tax-hikes for the rich. Suddenly the rich democrats realized that if the republicans don’t watch for them Obama will tax-hike them.

He did make one revealing statement (that I think was genuine) about the DE primary results. That he had been waiting all his life for someone to come along and tear down the establishment, he just didn’t know it would come from the middle and right.

Maybe, just maybe, the DE primary (and the GOP establishment’s reaction to it) opened his eyes about the tea party movement. He definitly described it as being made up of people “from the middle and right.” A big change from his previous descriptions of the tea party.

Maybe he hates the establishment more than conservatives, and figures the enemy of my enemy is my friend.

Damn capitalist! ;-) Whichever Mark was guest-hosting for the last hour of Rush’s show today played this and I about had a heart attack. What next, Bawneee Fwank (Frank: piece of meat between two buns) advocating traditional marriage?

I didn't want to go that far, although I do wonder. I think rather that this is an outshoot of championing an underdog against the "establishment", which may also be close to what you have said.

I hope his eyes are open. Our movement is full of reformed lefties. Who knows?
