Skip to comments.Matthews' Strange Election Metaphor: Dems Like Bowie's Men At Alamo
Posted on 11/01/2010 2:48:31 PM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest
This could go down as the strangest simile of the election season . . .
Introducing this evening's Hardball, Chris Matthews likened the electoral plight of Democrats to the Battle of the Alamo, "as seen from inside the mission." In other words, Matthews casts the Dems as Jim Bowie's Americans, fighting a hopeless battle against the Mexicans, in which role Chris casts . . . the Republicans!

Remember the Alamo ping to Today show list.
Naw, they’re more like the crew of the Titanic.
So YOU’RE the one who watches MsNBC.
poor little marxist stooge
He just called us savages.
Hey, just got that in the mail from Netflix (the John Wayne version).
Coincidence? I think not!
It’s more like their Waterloo. Their Kursk. Their Battle of Midway. Their Dien Ben Phu.
More like the ‘DemonRATS’ are Santa Ana and his men and the Republicans are Sam Houston and his men at San Jacinto!
The funniest part is that Matthews thinks any of his dozens of viewers actually know something about the Alamo.
Actually I think they would have been fighting for Mexico!
1) None of them believe in anything worth dying for.
2) As long as they’re out of the way, I don’t care if they’ve overestimated their role in history.
Leftist idiots such as Chris Matthews are on the wrong side of history because they’re on the wrong side of the American people. We don’t want European nanny-state socialism and we won’t tolerate elitist, leftist politicians that consider us bumpkins, sneer at us and then expect to be re-elected. I can’t wait to see little Chrissy Matthews cry on-air Tuesday night.
Beyond the bad analogy, Chris needs a lesson in Texas history.
Bowie was not in charge at the Alamo. I know just the Texas history (San Antonio area) homeschool teacher who might be able to give the hapless Matthews a decent education (but since she is a Conservative, it might cost him more than a “Harvard” education).
As usual, Matthews has it wrong.
The real Alamo crowd are in fact the congressional conservatives fighting a delaying action since 2008.
The “Battle of San Jacinto” will be tomorrow. And the victory will be every bit as complete.
Texans know what I mean.
Shame on him for comparing Dims to heroes of the Alamo.
His ignorance is appalling..and insulting.
DON”T MESS WITH TEXAS
Nope ... big difference there. The men at the Alamo were men.
Hey Chrissy - why don’t you, Ed Shultz and Rachael Maddow combine forces? Can you imagine the media powerhouse that would be? Literally dozens of viewers, watching a single show! The poor folks at Nielsen would have a coronary...
Exactly. The heirs of William Travis might have a thing or two to discuss with Chrissie. And I’m not even a Texan.
The (D) are really more like the guards at Auschwitz as the Allies advance. May want get your exfiltration plans in order. Double knot your running shoes. Break out your civvies. Check the weather, run to the rain.
2012 will likely be even better as the next cycle of Democraps come up for reelelection. The ones not under indictment anyway.
Well, Bowie and Travis shared joint command for a short period until Bowie became deathly ill. Nor did they get along very well. Travis then held sole command until the end.
However, Missy Chrissy was wrong to be sure. And it’s a bad analogy in any event.
Frick’ you Chris.
Try not to wet your little panties too much when the GOP hands you your ass tomorrow.
Blame me for the Bowie reference, not Matthews. He never mentioned Bowie by name. He said that “for those on the left, watching tomorrow night’s election returns promises to be like the Battle of the Alamo, as seen from inside the Mission.” I extrapolated to Bowie.
I’ve gone back and changed the headline at NewsBusters to read: “Matthews’ Strange Election Metaphor: Dems Like Americans At Alamo”
I think he’s planning a cruse ship from Kansas to Texas.
His fondest wish is to travel in a time machine back to the 1920s and visit President Lincoln.
The guy needs to go back to grade school .
How a propos. We just finished watching liberal historians “explain” why defending The Alamo to the death was a foolish thing to do. Mr. Matthews, being the liberal that he is, may want to consider the implications of his statement given the liberal view of the battle at The Alamo.
Whenever the A-clown use retarded references like this to describe politics, it denegrates and degrades real hroes. real men who gave it their all.
Panty-waste politicians have no business even being mentioned in the same sentence as our real American heroes.
Here’s a better analogy for these losers. They’re like Cornwallis, bottled up at Yorktown by George Washington’s patriot army, and tomorrow the band will be playing “The World Turned Upside Down”.
Not that the men at the Alamo would have ever been for such things but the men at the Alamo were fighting and willing to die for what they believed in.

Please contact us ASAP so we can add you to our viewer panel for our currently vacant NBC slot.
Hey, Chrissie, dontcha know that all the people defending the Alamo were massacred by General Santa Anna’s army? We can only hope the results tomorrow are that thorough.
LOL: I know, I know. If I stopped watching, he’d lose half his audience ;-)
Sure doesn't sound like a Democrat to me.
So the Dims are the Good Guys and the pubbies are the Bad Guys but the Dims are gonna lose, in his opinion.
Maybe it's a better simile than Chrissie thought...
I like British General Cornwallis and his men at Yorktown much better.
Their Somme. Their Verdun.
The men at the Alamo were fighting for freedom from an oppressive government. Chrissie has got to go find another analogy. Democrats are anything but freedom and a non oppressive government.
Soon, Crissy will figure out the tingle running down his leg was Obama pissing on him. The big question is will he care.
Does this mean the bitches, witches, whores and ‘enemies’, have a chance???
What a concept.. A GAY ALAMO STORY... transvestites and everything..
Famous last words:
Colonel Travis, you order any landscaping work to be done today????
Missy will be a slobbering mess tomorrow night and I cant wait to see it - it will be the first time I have intentionally tuned into him in quite awhile.
