Skip to comments.Surprise: Three Out of Four 'Chris Matthews Show' Panelists Say Tea Party a Negative for GOP
Posted on 03/28/2010 6:41:02 PM PDT by Rufus2007
Perhaps tuning in to NBC's "The Chris Matthews Show" isn't high on your list of priorities, outside of wanting the chance to catch Dan Rather suggest something bizarre like President Barack Obama couldn't sell watermelons. However, if you had watched the March 28 broadcast of the program, you would have found the show's roster of panelists think the Tea Party movement is a black mark on the Republican Party, as far as it pertains to unseating the Democratic majority in Congress.
Matthews' show featured NBC Capitol Hill correspondent Kelly O'Donnell, Newsweek's senior Washington correspondent Howard Fineman, CNN senior political analyst Gloria Borger and Atlantic senior editor Andrew Sullivan. In the aftermath of the passage of ObamaCare into law, some have suggested this was a defeat for the Tea Party movement. Matthews asked if the mere existence of this movement was a plus or minus for the Republican Party.

I care about what they think because????
Remember, most of those who used to watch CNN and PMSNBC are now tuning in to the Cartoon Network to get their news.
Hmmmmm. And the 99% of the MSM and the Democrats are giving the rest a bad name. What’s their point? If they don’t like it, it must be evil because they don’t like it? Wankers.
You were expecting sanity from CNN pundits? Do you expect sanity from Chrissy Matthews, the “Spitter in Chief”?
Why not ask Lawrence O’Donnell why he is now an open socialist, and a crazy one at that?
Is that POS Ed Schulz at CNN or MSNBC? He’s another supremo nutto.
Between CNN and MSNBC, it sounds like Beerfest Night at an insane asylum.
The Scoreboard: Thursday, Mar. 25

they dont get it...
The fact that Chris Matthews’ and his guests think the Tea Party is bad, is proof positive that the Tea Party is the greatest thing that ever happened to the Republican Party.
More entertaining, better commentary, and a more mature treatment of the subject matter on the cartoon network, imho.
No surprise what so ever coming from this group of left wing buffoons. They are all card carrying dimoKKKRATS.
one out of 1000 tea partiers gives a rats rear what Chris Mathews thinks...
Actually, I’m just trying to be nice.
NONE of us gives a crap what he or any one of his “panelists” think.
Yay for Kelly O’Donnell. She is a breath of fresh air over on Nutty News. She is what a professional news reporter should be. Few and far between over there in looneyland.
This is part of a letter that I faxed to 100 congressman.
Im going to push for more sunshine laws. If it takes putting audio and video recording devices in very hook and cranny in every corner of every room in Washington, so be it. There will be so much light it will make the streets of London look like the dark side of the moon.
STOP YOUR OUT CONTROLL SPENDING.
Hilarious. And they accuse Fox of being a mouthpiece for the right. What do they think this line up is ? Not even an attempt at balance.
Okay, that doesn’t sound right.
With that lineup, I’m surprised it wasn’t unanimous. Including Chris.
I tell you what, Pikachu and Tom & Jerry are more reliable then those clowns on CNN and MSDNC
Three out of four Matthews’ panelists can kiss my Aunt Fanny!
Exactly! That routine is SO old - their propaganda is worn out. Who watches them anyway. They count on their audience being dumb but even the dumb are now speaking out at tea parties.
That is shocking! I would have bet it would have been 4 out of 4.
Is that Aunt NAN Pelosi?
I love it when the commie libs start showing so much concern for the future of the GOP. It means that Americans must be doing something right.
One mentally ill Democrat talking to other mentally ill Democrats? Why would I want to watch that?
You’re thinking “Sunshine” (Jonathan Edwards, 1972).
Thus proving the great value to the right!
It’s been my theory for some time now that someone must be spiking the MSNBC water cooler with crazy juice. No one on that network makes a whit of sense, and previously normal people quickly become frothing maniacs shortly after being hired by the network.
How is it a defeat when the Dems had to ram healthcare through with extrordinary measures? It’s like saying someone lost a poker hand to someone holding five aces, two of the same suit.
Three out of four panelists? Dang, he had more panelists than viewers.
I hope so. For the most part, there is little difference between many republicans (RINOs) and democrats.
They think the Tea parties will field a third party candidate, like against Dede Scozifozi, or they plan to field a stalking horse 'Tea Party' third party candidate, like against Harry Reid in Nevada. They think they can use this to split the vote and win, even though it failed in Mass, VA and NJ.
We need to let them keep thinking this or they may develop other plans to steal the elections.
“but I’m perplexed they’re downplaying the threat of this grassroots movement.”
They’re downplaying it because it terrifies them, like Sara Palin terrifies them. They’re frightened children whistling past the graveyard.
That is the funny part (from the sane persons point of view) of the communists mental illness.
The communists / liberal / progressive / socialist / Marxist / what the hell ever are firmly convinced that everyone does think they are important and that everyone does want to know what they think.
Now reality clearly indicates that belief is so far removed from the truth that is laughable and the ratings of the various networks absolutely point directly to the winning formula.
BUT THEY ARE LIBERAL PROGRESSIVE COMMUNISTS and they are in the right damn it! Just ask them. They will be more than happy to prattle on about how right they are and how wrong all the rest of the world is and all those horrid non-believers are simply not educated enough OR they have not explained their communism either clearly enough or enough times to convince everyone else they are right about their progressive liberalism.
Such is the depth of their delusion.
Unfortunately, the darker forces acting against the united States have infected the education system to such a degree as to prevent a student at college entrance age from being able to coherently READ. Therefore we now have a large portion of the population that are dumb as river rocks and actually believed the bull$hit from the little bammy crew.
And what with human nature being what it is the narcissist Talking Head journalist or creepy politician will totally ignore the fact that their constituents actually believe the gubbermnt is going to buy their gas or pay the mortgage so long as there are crowds of said clueless twits to cheer and applaud adoringly when promised a chicken in every pot.
The education coming to the clueless crowd will be hard, cruel, not swift and very painful. Also, there is a clear possibility they will lash out against the very ones that liberate them from their mentally delusional overlords. They will cling to the fantasy that things were good when they were non-thinking sheep and the ones that ripped open the gate of the slaughterhouse pens are the evildoers that must be eliminated.
Presto. The Øbama New World Order Corps.
Take a peek at the “Ed” show, he and Olberman make Chrissie look sane.
We are seeing an all out assault on the Tea Party people, if it is successful and the TP people are marginalized, we are in big trouble here in the USA.
Convincing Proof That the Tea Party is the Most effective and Threatening group to the Left Wing Communists ruining the Country. Keep up the Good work Tea Partiers!!!!!!!!!!!!!
“Between CNN and MSNBC, it sounds like Beerfest Night at an insane asylum.”
So many great taglines waiting to be stolen and I can only use one at a time.
“Take a peek at the Ed show, he and Olberman make Chrissie look sane.”
I agree, Chris Matthews seems very calm and almost reasonable after a few seconds of “Ed”! I watched “Ed” for about two minutes one time and swore off that kind of self torture. In the fifties we would have had to go to the insane asylum on Bull street in Columbia,SC to see someone even close to being as deranged as “Ed”. The three people who comprise his audience must be some kind of fruitcakes for sure.
Three out of four MSLSD viewers have leg tingle whenever Obama’s visage appears on the telescreen.
The one in four who don’t will be arrested.
Who is Chris Matthews?
It is a negative in the sense that the Republican Party can no longer go about business as usual: taking conservatives for granted and shifting to the left to gain moderate votes.
The fact that Chris Matthews and his guests think the Tea Party is bad, is proof positive that the Tea Party is the greatest thing that ever happened to the Republican Party.
I got a load of Schulz's act a few years ago on Houston AM radio; he was on here for a while (haven't heard him recently). He basically impersonates a Milwaukee union organizer, that's where he's coming from.
You imagine 18" arms and a 25" neck and a flattop haircut, and photos of FDR, JFK, and Walter Reuther on the wall. That's about he picture I got.
That's why I wish someone would open a mike at that table for about 10 min. before air time and save a file of the pre-airtime chitchat. I think it would be fascinating, and even more revealing.
And four out of four Crissy Matthews show panelists (and Crissy herself) thinks Zer0’s butthole tastes - mmm mmm good - yummy.
A negative for the GOP? I think they’ve got that backward.
