Post-Coakley Lib Crack-up: Matthews, Dean Call Each Other Crazy
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 01/20/2010 5:32:23 PM PST by governsleastgovernsbest

The super-sized, take-out-a-second-mortgage-to-pay-for-it bushel basket of movie popcorn just might not be big enough. War is breaking out among liberals, and the entertainment value might make Avatar look like a test signal.

Just make yourself comfortable, sit back, and watch Chris Matthews and Howard Dean go after each other on this evening's Hardball. Dean was floating the absurd argument that by choosing Scott Brown over Martha Coakley, voters were sending a secret coded message that they really wanted a health care bill . . . more liberal than the current Obamacare version.

Matthews calls Dean out on his lack of logic, and the pair wind up trading accusations of craziness.

That video clip is great. Dean’s logic is unbelievable...but I hope the Dems follow it. Matthews does a good job of calling Dean out (and calling him crazy).

Untrue, in part.

There were Massachussetts “liberal” personalities who said they are voting for Brown because FascistObamaCare was worse than no bill at all. Many likeminded people online said the same.

Wonky voters pouring over the Senate bill and then encoding their true desires in their voting patterns. Voters displaying their rage at Bush by voting FOR a Republican. These people have spun so much in thier lives, they have forgotton which way is up.

Cant believe it either. Howard Dean was the LEAST CRAZY of the 2, and was making sense because he had the poll numbers to back up his argument.

Yep the left wing lunatics are now convinced that the democrats lost Virginia Governor race, New Jersey Governor race, and now the extremely important Senate race in Massachusetts because the democrats have not been socialists enough. This not is just stupidity these people are mentally deranged, there is no doubt about that.

The DemocRATS’ reaction to yesterday’s election reminds me of that scene in “Trains, Planes and Automobiles” when Steve Martin and John Candy were driving down the interstate the wrong way. When people told them that they were “going the wrong way”, they laughed and said, “How do they know where we’re going”.

The Progressives are lying to themselves when they say that the Brown/Obama voters really want a more liberal progressive healthcare bill that includes single payer. Those were just the Democrats who voted for Brown/Obama - they amounted to 20% of the Democrat base. The independent Brown/Obama voters which amounted to 40 points for Brown wanted no such thing. If the Democrats run with that lie and keep pushing healthcare on America, the independents along with Republicans will kill them in November.

On another subject of this topic, I am a BIG FAN of Glenn Beck but I thought he was a Debbie Downer today on his show talking about last night’s win. Hell Glenn, we got the 41st vote to keep the Democrats in check. Celebrate that. I understand Brown is a politician and you don’t trust them, but gee man, let’s celebrate this small victory.

Wow. Matthews is ready to face the truth but Dean is still addicted to spinning it to the point of dizziness. The “Swimmers Seat” is gone. It is huge; 40+ years of D domination of senate seats is now gone. Turn, pivot, go the other way....what message is unclear? Dean is a highly educated fool.

I have to give this one to Mathews. At least he could face up to the fact that people who did not want obamascare would vote for Brown and liberals would vote for Croakley. Dean just did not want to admit that the election meant more people did not want obamascare.

It was hilarious when Mathews asked him who he would have voted for. Croakley, of course. So, you wouldn’t be sending any secret messages but all the other Brown voters were? Un-be-frick-en-lieve-able!

Max, if you watched that clip and thought that hoho made sense, call dr. dean and get a lobotomy.

hoho said he had poll numbers, but nothing he said made any sense.

Bookmark the clip, go to bed, get sober, watch it tomorrow.

If you stand by your post, call dr. dean.
