Skip to comments.Matthews: Palin 'Talking About God,' is 'Troubling'
Posted on 11/11/2008 4:43:54 PM PST by St. Louis Conservative
After airing an interview clip of Sarah Palin telling Fox News' Greta Van Susteren that she was looking for guidance from God about running for national office again, an appalled Chris Matthews called it "troubling," when he let loose this rant on Tuesday's "Hardball":
Is, is this commentary about theocracy and going to God for approval? We've been through that with President Bush who said he, "didn't take advice from his father, he got it from another father." And we've been through this sort of Joan of Arc period. Are we gonna get another piece of this where God's leading candidates to run for president? I mean that sort of keeps us out of the conversation doesn't it? I mean, seriously, I mean God is telling her to run? And she's saying it openly on a secular television show? This isn't the religious hour....Talking about God, in a political setting is troubling to a lot of people. If you're talking about a big tent, this looks more like the church tent, not the big tent.
Then a little later in the program, Matthews returned to Palin's expressions of faith and noted that kind of talk can be,"dangerous." And when his guest, former Dick Cheney aide Ron Christie, said he was tired of the media picking on Palin when, in fact, Joe Biden made a lot of blunders, Matthews let this howler fly: "Joe Biden took more hits from the media than anybody for the last 30 years!"

Isn’t this the same baboon who felt a “tingling” in his leg for Obama?
No! Mathews talking about shivers up his leg when he sees Obama is frightening
Mathews better not read the Declaration of Independence as it refers to a creator God. What a twit.
Matthews needs to be excommunicated from the Catholic Church.
God has that effect on the godless.
I guess all the founding Fathers and the majority of our past Presidents trouble this fool too.
More confirmation that much of this battle was spiritual. Amazing thing is, the God-haters think that this means God lost or God didn’t answer prayer. In reality, God did answer - and in a way that those who chose pocket book or race or popularity over His truths wll be judged for, and judged harshly I’m afraid.
HIs complete breakdown during this past campaign & loss of all credibility is one of the of the silver linings of this otherwise tragic fiasco.
Exactly. I bet Obama has just as many quotes about looking to God for guidance - but for him it’s OK.
Chrissy you’re an idiot.
People need to start calling him on this blabber. Sarah was talking about HER religion and HER life. Actually, none of his damn business.
And if Chrissy really wants to start worrying about religion and politics, he should start with Reverend Wright. That’s what’s scary!
I think Matthews is troubling.
Yes. He had an on-air Obasm.
But when Obama does it, Matthews gets an angelic tingle up his leg.
Well Cwissy, Palin’s Good is far more kind an emcompassing than your marxist Gawd, Barack Obama, who is a mere mortal pretender.
Now Cwiss, go wipe up your leg.
Yeah. The same guy who had to run off stage and change his pants. It looked like he dropped mayonnaise on them. Weird. I didn't notice him eating a sandwich.
