A Hardball epic . . .
Message to Chris Matthews: when ripping a guest for his lack of historical knowledge, try to avoid making a history mistake of your own in the same segment.
It happened on this afternoon's Hardball. After lambasting a guest for not knowing his Neville Chamberlain history, Matthews surmised that the attack on the USS Cole in October, 2000 happened under . . . President Bush.

What a boob.
The Cole happened on Bushes’ watch and 60 states make up the United States of America. /sarcasam
Probably gets his history from John “Christmas ‘68 in Cambodia under orders from President Nixon” Kerry.
Why didn’t Bush DO something after the bombing of the US embassies??? < /s > Or the FIRST WTC bombing attack???
Matthews has other things on his mind, like his Victorian home...
I think earlier this week OB said 57 states.
The Cole happened on Bushes watch and 60 states make up the United States of America. /sarcasam
Revisionist history at its best,, or its worst? tough call. ;-)
Good ol’ Chrissy.
"Obama is so hot that he sends tingles running up my legs."
Matthews: “Wasn’t Cole under Bush. I mean, I don’t know what I’m talking about here.”
[Chris was partially right.]
Is there any actual content on American talk TV? (Just asking.)
Not on MSNBC at least.
It’s actually quite telling that the lib is in denial about Cole. He doesn’t want to disturb the narrative that they attack us because of Republicans and he doesn’t want his audience to remember that Democrats fail at dealing with terrorists.
No. That’s why I spend most of my TV time watching satellite tranmissions of footy ;-)
A. Morgan is right. Obama said he'd visited (i.e. campaigned in) 57 states so far, and had one to go, and wouldn't be able to visit Alaska and Hawaii. 57 + 3 = 60. Obama was asserting the United States was made up of 60 states, including Alaska and Hawaii and the one continental state he'd yet to visit.
Chrissy hates Republicans so much his hatred has blinded him to the truth. The only thing keeping him from running for the US Senate seat in PA is the fear that he might lose his job. He so badly wants to defeat the GOP that he would resort to anything.
