Badge of Honor: Matthews Accuses Jindal of ‘Stupid Talk’
FinkelBlog ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 02/23/2009 5:04:55 PM PST by governsleastgovernsbest

Bobby Jindal must be doing something right: Chris Matthews is making ugly remarks about him. On this evening’s Hardball, Matthews accused the Louisiana governor of “stupid talk.” It got even better for Bobby: Dem Gov. Ed Rendell announced that “I’m voting for Charlie Crist” over Jindal. Thank you, Ed!

Rendell was a guest on this evening’s Hardball, and Matthews played a clip of Jindal and Crist’s contrasting comments on the stimulus plan. Jindal was critical, Crist thought it was great.

MATTHEWS: Governor Rendell, that’s cartoon talk by Jindal. Nobody’s talking about a train or a light rail from Disney World [sic]; they’re talking about Los Angeles connecting with one of the great places to spend money out there in Vegas. Why he says Disneyworld or Disneyland is just an attempt to make fun of the whole thing. That’s stupid talk.

Can Michael Steele take a page out of the DNC book and call them bigots and racists? Not that I think he should, but someone should point out the hypocrisy.

so Rendell should turn down the money to finish digging that boondoggle under the Allegheny River in Pittsburgh. He’s called it a mistake, so he’s going to be fine with shoveling another 300 million at it.

Heads up - this is the beginning of the Palinization of Jindal.

Heads up - this is the beginning of the Palinization of Jindal.

But some FReepers assert that Jindal is a "big-government conservative." Forgetting the irony of that label, and please recognize that I know very little about Jindal, what's the truth?

Given our choices both Bushes were best and I supported both, but they didn't really deliver like I had hoped. I really do not want another free-spender in office.

Mathews decided to not run for public office because he didn’t know what he would do when he got there.

It sounds to me as though Chrissy was attacking Governor Jindal’s Indian heritage. What a racist pig!

Matthews, the tingly legged artificial viagra stiff, has become an icon of an imbecile. I work hard not to personalize people I disagree with; but chrissie, with you I make an exception.

My only point is that the MSM will return to the same play everytime....casting Rs as ignorant/stupid/dumb. It may be more difficult with Jindal being an Ivy League Rhodes Scholar - but hey, they did it to George Bush, Harvard MBA....with great success.

Some posters may demand that Jindal show them his birth certificate and prove he is a “natural born” citizen. :)

With the couple of hundred people that watch Mathews, it doesn't make much difference what he says.

Matthews is not in a position to call either Palin or Jindal stupid. Jindal (in Chrissy’s world) has an edge, with both an Ivy League and Oxford degree, and time in DC as a Congressman.

I would love nothing better than to see an intellectual spar between Matthews and Jindal. (one could not call that an intellectual match).

I heard Jindal yesterday. All I can say is he didn’t say “uh-uh” once. Sounded alot more lucid than our president...

He was on one of the Sunday morning talk shows—I think Meet the Press.

He also made a comment about how the Republican Party had to “outsource” the GOP response.

Nice macaca moment there, Matthews.

they’re talking about Los Angeles connecting with one of the great places to spend money out there in Vegas.

It's a playground for adults. Hardly a necessity. "Go throw your money on the table knowing that 94% will stay with the casino". This is an economic plan?

Interesting point: I hadn’t thought about the Indian reference.
