Matthews Declares Obama Speech ‘Churchillian’—Before It’s Delivered
FinkelBlog ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 02/24/2009 5:22:30 PM PST by governsleastgovernsbest

The thrill is back! Chris Matthews got a Churchillian frisson from the Obama speech–even before the president delivered it.

During the Hardball pre-game, Matthews declared this to guests Pat Buchanan and Larry O’Donnell:

CHRIS MATTHEWS: Here’s the key line, I think, though there will be others. “The day of reckoning has arrived,” this is Senator, this is President Obama. “The day of reckoning has arrived. The time to take charge of our future is here.” This is Churchillian.

Buchanan had a telling retort . . .

Perhaps Chamberlinian would be a term for his speech.

I hope that was just some spittle on his chin, not Obama juice.

Interesting that Chrissy made that comment to Buchanan seeing as how Buchanan wrote a book blaming Churchill and Hitler equally for WWII.

Why not just compare the yet delivered speech to the Sermon on the Mount?

According to the prevailing media opinion, Churchill is lower than crap compared to Obama- unfit to shine the current POTUS’s shoes.

That's strange. Chris Matthews is usually so objective.

So far he has been more Carterian than Churchillian.

I was trying to come up with something higher than Churchill. I agree some type of devine comparison seems to fit the bill.

In a “reckoning” there are those who are called “to account”. That’s chilling.

Matthews Declares Obama Speech ‘Churchillian’

Good Lord, Matthews is so stupid he can't spell "Orwellian".

Obamachev just banished a bust of Churchill from the Oval Office. Mathews choice of Churchillian to describe a Stalinist is certainly ironic.

“Socialism is the philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance and the gospel of envy. The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings. The inherent vice of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries.”

Winston Churchill

One of these days Mathews is going to chase Obama down the White house hallway, leap frog on top of him, sniff his ass and declare it smells like roses.

Obama doesn’t think highly of Churchill. They sent his bust back to England! Michelle probably didn’t want to look at that cracker. /s

Obama may not appreciate the comparison since he sent the bust of Churchill back to Britain that had been on loan to the US since 9/11/01.

The Brits didn’t request it back, and offered to let us keep it for an extended period. Obama reportedly told them, “Thanks, but no thanks”.

Will he mark his territory before of after he sniffs his ass?
