Oh WOW.. Thanks for posting this..applause to Meese!
Wow. That was a pretty good butt kicking. Too bad there aren't more people speaking up for this administration.
Sounds like "Sissy Chrissie" was hving a "hissy!" WAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH !!!
I always thought that Ed Meese was one of the most articulate spokesmen for the Reagan Administration (and there were many.) Matthews was his usual shallow self.
This issue has politicians on Bush's side getting more Clintonesque every day. So far I've seen several versions of them depending on what the definition of "is" is.
I appreciate it even though I didn't see it.
Reads like Meese playing pingpong with a child.
I don't think he'll invite Ed Meese back in a hurry.
Meese said it (the NSA spying) was a legitimate lawful act, then Chris asks (like a retard), well then why is it secret then? Meese said Because we dont want the enemy to know whats going on. (I think he must have been thinking youre a dumbass).
Thanks for the commentary Ian!!! LMAO and spilled my morning coffee!!!
I saw it.....excellent! thank you for posting.
Here is a Video of it also
It is certainly revealing of Matthews' "thought" process, or more correctly, of Matthews' shockingly obvious lack of critical thinking skills...
Are you as surprised at his ignorance about what is actually going on as I am?
The NYTimes has aided the terrorist along with their traitorous source.
Nothing like showing your complete ignorance on TV.
Isn't it? Meese didn't say one thing that we haven't said right here on FR and Matthews seemed sandbagged.
I think we could take him.
Definetely a good read, thanks for posting. Its nice to hear that O'l Ed Meese is still around and kicking (hard)!
Happen to catch the whole thing; Meese was outstanding! Need to send him out there more often. He kept correcting Chrissy who always seems to have too much saliva in his mouth.
Oh no I didn't have to see it to appreciate it. This is fabulous!!! Meese had Matthews for lunch, and he doesn't even know it...or care. Matthews just keeps on keeping on, trying his darnest to keep up the charade that he knows what he's talking about.
Hellsbells, I could even insert the spots where Matthews spit and had drool at the corners of his mouth!
thank you soooooooooooooooooooooooo much! I would hate to have missed this.
AND.........did Matthews even once this week mention the Alito hearing? I didn't watch HARDBALL much this week, but when I flipped in, it seemed he was making a concerted effort to try and keep the spotlight away from the Democrat dunderheads embarrassing themselves trying to nail Alito.
You have to give Little Chrissy some credit for even inviting Mr. Meese on to the show to debate the issues. That's like me inviting Lebron James or Shaq over to my house for a game of one on one.
I happened to catch part of this interview, while I was clicking by. Stopped only to see Ed Meese, who would not let Chrissie interrupt him. Meese kept his train of throught very effectively, Matthews tends to bully so badly, but Meese dealt with him just great.
Chrissie's mind, such as it is, must be going by now. He's just now getting over a 3rd bout with malaria, after yet another family trip to Africa over Christmas. Why he keeps exposing himself to such a disease is beyond me.
He is not just articulate, he is sharp, no nonsense and no spin guy. We so desperately need more like him.
He never seems to know the facts and I wonder if it is purposeful. Or maybe it's just that Ignorance really is Bliss.
I really like Meese.
I wish I had, I am a big admirer of ED Meese. He is an incredibly decent men. Maybe I can catch it when it is rerun!
Do you doubt for a moment that Matthews knew full well that he was lying thru his teeth every time he spoke?
It was awesome...
Meese slapped Matthews around and just looked at him like "You have NO clue, Chrissy."
I found it equally humorous that Meese mispronounced Plame as "Palmey" as if the situation wasn't even important enough to bother with...
It made me want to stand up and cheer!
I will give Matthews some credit on his show last night though...
He had Russell Tice on (the NSA "whistleblower") and he did grill him a little about what he witnessed.
Dignified, intelligent, articulate elder statesmen....REPUBLICAN heroes.
roflmao.........I know! LOL.
I laughed all the way through that show.....especially when Tucker Carlson said that Chuck Hagel would be the GOP nominee.
Agreed. It is a comfort to see them, kind of like visiting the old neighborhood. : )
LOL...[coke up his nose] Matthews did get his clock cleaned.
save it to your hard drive.....you'll want to see it more than once!
Tucker Carlson is beginning to really piss me off...
I know the technology. Again, it's what the definition of "is" is. Wiretapping is generally used in conversation to mean any interception of your telephone conversations. The sections of the United States Code collectively known as "wiretapping laws" cover any such interception of verbal or electronic communications regardless of technicalities, and the include foreign communications. Meese tried to say it's not tapping on a technicality. Clinton still haunts us.
MATTHEWS: Then why keep it secret?
MEESE: Because you dont want the enemy to know that youre intercepting and surveilling these kinds of conversation.
Geeez! Come on, Chris! Duh...
There is no legal term that automatically "covers" all such communication. because it cannot anticipate all invention. What are called loopholes simply exploit this fact of life.
