Wow. That was a pretty good butt kicking. Too bad there aren't more people speaking up for this administration.

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.

Well you‘re not being tapped. The tapping is a particular technique of connecting into the wires of a particular phone or into—plugging into a particular wireless phone. This is intercepting communications that are going overseas.

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.

You have to wonder if Matthews is a moron, or is intentionally misrepresenting what Scooter Libby was indicted for.

I don't think he'll invite Ed Meese back in a hurry.

Great transcript.

A comment I found over at the Political Teen. He has the video.

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 what’s going on.” (I think he must have been thinking ‘you’re a dumbass’).

Thanks for the commentary Ian!!! LMAO and spilled my morning coffee!!!

It is certainly revealing of Matthews' "thought" process, or more correctly, of Matthews' shockingly obvious lack of critical thinking skills...

There is an article someplace about the high number of throw-down traceless cell phones being purchased out of the ordinary.

The NYTimes has aided the terrorist along with their traitorous source.

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.

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.

The technology is different. Wire tapping refers to a situation that dpeends on the almost exclusive use of land-lines. This is more like monitoring short-wave radio signals, but even this is not a good comparison because the amount of information is vastly greater.

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...

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.

This was a good few weeks. We got to see Meese, Ashcroft, Quayle, Eagleburger, and a few other greats from administrations past.

Dignified, intelligent, articulate elder statesmen....REPUBLICAN heroes.

The technology is different.

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.

MEESE: Because this was a legitimate, lawful act by the president.

MATTHEWS: Then why keep it secret?

MEESE: Because you don‘t want the enemy to know that you‘re 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.
