Matthews Wowed by Obama Response to Query about Bill Richardson's Beard
Newsbusters ^ | December 3, 2008 | Geoffrey Dickens

"Wow!" That was Chris Matthews' immediate reaction to Barack Obama's response to a question from a Fox News reporter about why his pick for Commerce Secretary, Bill Richardson, shaved his beard off. After playing a clip from Obama's press conference introducing Richardson on Monday night's "Hardball," Matthews awed at the "intellectual" way Obama analyzed Richardson's personal grooming habits.

If Obama were to barf Chrissy would be first there to bag some for his Obama altar.

He’s beginning to look really strange with all of this.

When is Bill Mahr going to appear with Matthews? Bill can tell us; what it is like to be 'up close and personal' with a Believer and one who actually has communicated in person; with his messiah.

He’s just hoping to win another “Barack Obama Gives A Thrill Up My Leg Award” at the MRC Gala.

He is an idiot, and he is in serious need of psychological help.

This indicates he could well be elected to the US Senate.

I'm certain that Miss Chrissy would gladly grow a mustache and goatee in order to provide his adored Messiah a more realistic “encounter”...

He’s doing it because he knows it annoys the right.

I don’t watch him or any of them because they, including O’Reilly and the rest of the televion celebutards, are just the American version of Bread and Circuses.

Watching them is in the realm of timewasting activities worse than chain smoking in the face of a frigid north wind at breaktime, and slightly better than zoning out and picking one’s nose.

*And no it doesn’t apply to you.

So 'why' did Richardson get rid of the beard. . .I mean, if he worked for me; I would have told him to 'lose it' or don't show up; but what was the inspiring response that so overwhelmed Ms. Chris?

(You know, the harder they love; the harder they fall; wonder when Chrissy will show up for work and it will be 'over' tween him and Obama. . .)

The media has become beyond a joke-even FOX.
Asking questions at a president elect’s press conference about dogs, ties, Christmas shopping and now this bit of bizarro gayness.
What’s worse than the question is Obama even answering it and then going into great detail about another man’s facial hair.
The only thing creepier than Obama’s answer would be for him to actually shave Richardson.
Maybe that will happen next press conference.
I just hope he choses his face.

To Chris Matthews, I quote Elvis Presley. “They said you was high class, that was just a lie.”

If Obama likes beards so much why doesn’t he just tell Michelle to stop shaving hers?

OHhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

I’m watching the HBO mini series, John Adams. The United States our Founding Fathers created no longer exists in my opinion.

20th century power hungry politicians elected over and over and over again have bankrupted our republic to reward their party over country, their personal power over the people they represent. Without conpunction, these creatures have sent our great expierment sprialing toward a black abyss of socialism I fear we may never fully escape from.

The Anti Federalists and States Rights advocates were correct. And Jefferson’s words about patriots and tyrants prophetic.

It doesn't annoy; it provides comic relief.

That "fox news reporter" was Wendell Goler. He was practically drooling while asking his questions.

Made me sick after the way he has been refused to refer to "President Bush". He must have had something in his contract that allowed him to "The President" and then segue into saying "Mr. Bush".

I can't stand him, but I bet he'll be one of the very few reporters from Fox that obambi will ever acknowledge.

MATTHEWS: Wow! Reminds me of that same mock serious way that Barack Obama went about describing his dog-buying decision. The less important the issue, the more intellectual he gets.


there is no way any sane person could say this without a thick layer of sarcasm

Speaking of beards, whatever happened to Charlie Crist’s planned wedding?

Cancelled due to Jeb Bush wanting that Senate seat for his own.
