Keep in mind that he is IN Israel while agreeing with the racism assertion. Its been a busy night for Matthews. He also let us in on his belief that Cheney Is Like Brando In Superman Putting Liz In A Capsule Because His World Is Ending.
Gaffenator, the gaffemeister, the gaffeburger.
I cant wait until they try to put him up on a pedestal later in his life. Look at all he has accomplished! Im getting a tingle up my leg just thinking about it.
Chris Matthews: Whos more popular over here? Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, Joe Biden. Put them in order. Whos the most popular figure over here in Israeli?
Ethan Bronner: Bill Clinton is the most popular of those four. And I would say Hillary is probably next. And then I would say Joe Biden. And then president Obama.
Chris Matthews: Okay, that tells you a lot. So tell me why the President of the United States is so far at the bottom? Is it his middle name? Hussein?
Ethan Bronner: I would say that there is some level of prejudice about the fact that he had some islamic background through his stepfather. But I think it has more to do with the fact that when he came in to office a year ago he wanted to recalibrate the relationship between the United States and the Muslim world. And the easiest way to do that was to put some distance between the United States and Israel. And he did that. And that made people nervous. I think theres some sense here, that some degree of racism to be perfectly honest.
Chris Matthews: Yeah, because they see it as a black man.
This from a lying bigot who attended Jeremiah Wright’s church for 20 years.
Jews don’t trust obama because obama hates Jews...
That line is actually very funny, so I know there's absolutely no way Chrissy thought it up himself. I wonder who he stole it from.
I just thought they didn’t like him because he’s incompetent.
I don’t understand what that is suppossed to mean...
He forgot to include Jimmy Carter, the bigot who calls Israel an Apartheid system (on behalf of his Saudi masters who truly do have a segregated nation, with a death penalty for any non-muslims who dare enter certain cities and a 21st century prohibition on Jews entering the nation).
My family are Israeli, we have family in Israel. Opposing Obama has absolutely NOTHING to do with being racist. Most of my family members are Democrats, if they thought Obama TRULY cared about Israel, they would have voted for him, but everything we all know about Obama proved that he is anti Israel and the people he associates with are anti Israel which was one of the main reasons the majority of my family did NOT vote for him. Obama’s approval numbers in Israel are 4 percent..Bush’s were incredibly high, that is because Bush did everything to protect Israel and support Israel, Obama is the opposite
It wouldn’t have anything to do with Obama supporting Iran’s nuclear program...
Chris Matthews and Joe Clown Biden in Israel at the same time? That’s seems a little unfair doesn’t it?
Traditionally, muslems and Jews don’t get along.
This will just make the Jewish voters feel more guilty and vote for Obama again.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
Thanks for sharing that Sarah....I have some Jewish friends here in the states and during the Pres. run they were absolutely closed to any information that was not favorable for obama...they vote democrate regardless...more like a family tradition than an election you have a choice in. It was soooo frustrating trying to have a political discussion.
So I love to hear when Jewish people investigate their candidate and draw their own conclusions. I think there are more who do this than some might realize.
I just saw an obscene interview on Fox. Shep Smith actually was making the point that Israel might against obama because his MIDDLE NAME IS HUSSEIN. At least Judith Miller refuted it. Said not likely. More likely obama and what he has done to Israel since day one, and included all his muslim advisors and previous associations. Wright, et al. This is getting ridiculous and we should speak up and speak out. Shep Smith sounded more like Chris Matthews than I ever thought possible.
