Chris Matthews: Letís face it, the GOP forced Obama to the left
Hot Air ^ | NOVEMBER 4, 2010 | ALLAHPUNDIT

Via Greg Hengler, give the man credit: Amid the cacophony of dreary, rote Democratic excuses for the election — “messaging” is and forever shall remain my favorite — he’s got something novel going with this one. On the basics of it, that somehow Republicans thwarted Obama’s burning desire to be the post-partisan pragmatist of David Brooks’s dreams, here’s a little reminder from Day Four of the Obama presidency about just how serious The One was about compromise:

The top congressional leaders from both parties gathered at the White House for a working discussion over the shape and size of President Barack Obama’s economic stimulus plan. The meeting was designed to promote bipartisanship.

But Obama showed that in an ideological debate, he’s not averse to using a jab.

Challenged by one Republican senator over the contents of the package, the new president, according to participants, replied: “I won.”…

Wow. According to this logic, the GOP is so powerful, there SHOULD NOT EVEN BE a Democratic Party.

Maybe Obama was hypnotized by the Republicans.

It's a sad thing when a tingle up the leg turns into a tinkle down it.

Gee Obama was only the most liberal member of Congress before becoming President, a radical for 20+ years and associated with a race baiting hate America church for 20 years. He sure sounds like a John Bircher to me.

So... now he’s going to try to pin it on the Republicans who wanted nothing to do with the O’s agenda. Nice try, and I’m sure that donkey pundits would love to just bury the hyper-partisan ‘we won so sit down and shut up’ attitude that came with porkulus and health deform, but it’s not going to work this time.

They must really think we’re stupid.

I saw him say that on his show (I just wanted to see how strung out the nutties were . . .I did, really!). I actually couldn't believe what I had heard at first. He said it with such a straight face. Finally, I realized he really believes what he said.

They don't call it the loony left for nothing. The next two years are just gonna' be so much fun! I will peek in on Crissy and Olberwon every now and then, just to get a good laugh.

Republicans pushed OBummer to the left!!!
It's only a small step now for Matthews to say it was Bush's fault and his total insanity would be complete.

Oh sure!

And Communist heroes Saul Alinsky, anti-American Bill Ayers, Black chauvanist Jeremiah Wright and childhood mentor, the boy-raping Frank Marshall Davis had nothing to do with it.

Sniff sniff...I think you've soiled yourself again Matthews.

Reagan had the trickle down economy.

Obama tinkled down our backs.

Matthews has so swallowed the poison and is such a total believer in the deity of “The One”, that he simply cannot believe that his god could fail.

Hissy Crissy knows damned well that Obama is a self-described Communist. Crissy just wants his boyfriend to be liked.

Do we need any further proof that Matthews is totally disconnected from reality?

Chris, How is it possible to suggest that the person with the most liberal voting record in the Senate could possibly be moved further to the left by ANY outside force?

But Chris praised Alinsky as a hero of his, too. Just like Obama.
This must be one of those ‘two minutes of hate’ episodes.

Any rationalization will do as long as it isn’t personal responsibility for your own actions, eh Chrissy?

Hey Crissy-babby... that thrill going up your leg wasn’t because Obey was a moderate... it was because he was, and still is, a communist, like yourself...
