So much for that new tone of civility.
On Fridays Hardball, MSNBC host Chris Matthews acknowledged his disappointment in the tack Republicans have taken toward President Barack Obama especially in this time following the tragic shooting in Arizona.
Yeah, its almost like what he does is no good lets kill it because its his, Matthews said.
After citing a spokesman from House Majority Leader Eric Cantors office, Matthews asked the Huffington Posts Sam Stein if Republicans would play nice with Obama, or would they go ad hominem. However, in phrasing the question, he used what some believe is a derogatory term to describe his critics.
Sam, it seems to me it is a big question, Matthews said. So much of this attack on Obama has been ad hominem directed at the person of the president, whether its somebody some cracker out there on the right calling him some birther-type who says hes not an American or someone more sophisticated but basically saying hes a socialist. Will this be on the merits of the bill? Will it stay off the personal? Is it your hunch coming into Wednesdays vote?
Stein said this was much ado about nothing. He explained the bill was largely symbolic and the real debate would come later.
I mean, I think its going to be on the merits of the bill, Stein said. We have to consider the fact that this is all theater. No one expects this is going to go anywhere. It will pass the House and die in the Senate. This will be taken care of pretty quickly and then I think in a couple months well get to the real debate which is over whether or not theyre going to fund key measures of this bill. Thats the actual substance. This is kabuki theater designed to please the tea partiers.
Sounds like little Tinglebell is a Black Panther wannabe.
Hey Crissie, the “c” word is to white what the “n” word is to blacks, both mean ignorant shiftless and low account
Both are demeaning and derisive of a race
Hmm, so it’s “cracker” now ~ looks like the stupider breed of Democrat thugs are going to take it to the bottom of the barrel. It wasn’t enough that they killed a Republican federal judge in Tucson the other day ~ now they’re into racism.
FU, Chris Matthews!
Obama supporters= communists.
Cwacker Chris needs to cry in his pillow every night about being a cracker. Poor guy...
Well THAT is civil discourse. Not.
Chrissie is cracking up...his brain is fried...perhaps a few too many cocktails catching up with him.
Cr@cker and N!gger are the same thing for two different peoples. Both by media standards. matthews should end up being fired for calling some people cr@cker.
Matthews is toenail fungus. He’s yellow and annoying as hell.
Cracker this you little weasel.
Was he wearing black face when he said it?
But they're not bigots, and don't you dare accuse them of being bigots, you watermelon-swilling crackers.
More like a pillow-biter, jealous of Larry.
Snortin’ whiskey and drinkin’ cocaine
Since Tingles is a cracker, he can call white people crackers, just like black people use the N word. He is displaying his ignorance.
The Libs could sure dish it out to Bush but they can't take it when its their guy.
Chrissie, yo’ tingle-boy is a Marxist, homo Kenyan.
We-uns jes calls `em like we sees `em ya TV faggot.*
Cracker, honkey, gringo. Whatever, I have bigger things to worry about.
