Skip to comments.GOP congressman to Chris Matthews: ‘This is what you do on your show … you bully guests’

Perhaps Chris Matthews hasnt had a showdown quite this good since his contentious 2004 Republican Convention interview with then Sen. Zell Miller. During that exchange, the Georgia Democrat challenged the MSNBC Hardball host to a duel.
But on his Tuesday program, Illinois Republican Freshman Rep. Joe Walsh went head-to-head with Matthews about the debt-ceiling debate. That prompted several interesting exchanges between Walsh and Matthews, including one referencing his 2008 comment that President Barack Obama gave him a thrill up his leg:
WALSH: Hey, Chris, whats the presidents plan? Hey Chris, explain
MATTHEWS: Thats not the point. I pointed out that your party has said the president doesnt have a plan. Your plan doesnt have cuts in it. Can you explain that to me?

I always thought Chrissy just sat there tingling for an hour.
The GOP needs to go to war against the media. Walsh shows how it’s done.
Good for Walsh.
I sure miss Zell Miller. That was one democrat that I could actually like. I wonder how he’s doing.
I love this guy. He’s the real deal. His district (IL-9th)splits my suburb with IL-10th, so I got to meet him several times at campaign stops. He had a real tough campaign against Melissa Bean and her union thugs, but came out on top. After he was sworn in, he and his wife took the red-eye back home to thank us personally.
We can only wish all the Republicans were like him.
Chris Matthews is ridiculous. What a child.
That’s the ticket. If a public official gets bullied by the likes of Chris Matthews, they don’t deserve to have their job.
“and you wonder why people don’t come on your show....”
All CM does is filibuster. Nothing is accomplished by going on his show cause they have what, 100,000 viewers a night? It’s a WASTE OF TIME. Let this guy talk in his echo chamber and pretend that he matters. CM is a waste of space.
Was that a thrill I just felt up my leg? MSLSD is not an acceptable forum for any conservative but the Congressman did a good job, up until he complained about being bullied. That was not being bullied, it was business as usual from the thrill machine.
Did anyone see blue square during this segment on the bottom left side of the screen with a Republican elephant and the words, “Cut Cap Deceive?”
I’m in love.
It’s a good place to get your feet wet and get experience dealing with this stuff. I salute Mr. Walsh. He did a great job.
I know Joe Walsh and contributed to his campaign, Best money I have ever contributed!
God Bless Joe Walsh
Wish Joe would have wrapped it up with this: “And to the few people watching tonight, I would encourage you to change channels.”
Amen - that ought to be a litmus test - anyone that aspires to leadership in this great nation that can't make a fool out of the likes of this partisan putz does not deserve our support.
Joe Walsh calls Obama a liar:
Joe pimp-slapped Captain Tingle.
If my mom stops watching Chris Matthews, his viewership drops 33%.
He doesn’t bully Democrats, Leftball lets them spew whatever they want to.
I am so PLEASED that there is a FIGHTER from the LAND OF LINCOLN!
I didn't know anyone still watched Chrisy Matthews.
As effective as he was, Joe Walsh only gives Matthews credibility by submitting to his antics.
Oh, good. I’m glad you got a screen grab.
They do this kind of subliminal stuff because it works. This is pretty blatant, don’t you think? It’s usually more subtle. They must be getting desperate.
no one watches this show......who cares what Mathews says he only demeans himself....
good catch & good capture.
“As effective as he was, Joe Walsh only gives Matthews credibility by submitting to his antics.”
I guess you also feel the same way about Palin or Bachmann defending themselves. Sheesh.
How big is the US economy? - The old trip 'em up ploy.
Might have just as well asked what his favorite color was.
Chrissy is from the Tip O’Neill school of Journalism.
Actually, the question posed if answered in any fashion can be countered by some stats where certain aspects of the economy are added or subtracted in order to make it appear the answerter is not knowledgeable. MSNBC knows this and Hissy Matthews knows what to add or subtract regardless of the answer. It is the typical setup to embarrass the guest approach bullies at NBC affiliated networks use daily. ... We passed guillotine time long ago.

That prompted several interesting exchanges between Walsh and Matthews, including one referencing his 2008 comment that President Barack Obama gave him a "thrill" up his leg:Speaking of making cuts, people who go on the show should carry a knife.
I'd love to see him tell Matthews that G.E. doesn't pay their "fair share" of taxes and that G.E. closed down their incandescent light bulb plants in the USA and built new factories for the CFL bulbs in China and ask Chrissy... "How can you work for a company that ships jobs overseas and doesn't pay its' fair share?"
That was as bad a whuppin as there has been since Buster Douglas took out Tyson.
Pray for America
I wish he would have reminded Chris that BO has spent more than all presidents combined. They need to say that every night.

Some top talkers like Chris Matthews and Joy Behar infamous for making news as often as reporting it draw in a surprisingly small number of viewers. Matthews, whose program ranked 20th, has just 698,000 viewers, while The Joy Behar Show, which ranked 30th, attracts a thin 488,000. Compare that to OReillys 2.824 million viewers (add another 1.246 million for his repeat) or Hannitys 2.043 million.
Joe Walsh FB page. Facebook FReepers, give him some hits:
Shoulda asked Chrissy if he bleaches his hair.
Niiiice save there, Civ'. [admires your bloodthirsty cleverness]
Thanks for all the gif!
I think maybe Matthews should quit for the crappy job he does.
