Obama's Response To Egypt Crisis Makes Chris Matthews "Ashamed As An American"
Business Insider ^ | 2/4/11 | Glynnis McNicol

Posted on 02/04/2011 10:38:27 AM PST by pissant

Every once in a while when Chris Matthews isn't idiotically railing on Michele Bachmann, and Sarah Palin, and lately Glenn Beck, says something interesting, or at least out of character.

Case in point: This morning he popped up on Morning Joe for a Lent segment during which he strongly criticized America's reaction to the Egyptian uprising and Obama's treatment of Mubarak.

He took a break from his “gibbering idiot” role, which he took with unseemly haste after Keith Olbermann was escorted offstage by the men in white coats.

We told Matthews what that tingle was...he didn’t listen. Now he’s gotta wipe it up.

The thrill is gone
The thrill is gone away
The thrill is gone baby
The thrill is gone away
You know you done me wrong baby
And you’ll be sorry someday

The thrill is gone
It’s gone away from me
The thrill is gone baby
The thrill is gone away from me
Although I’ll still live on
But so lonely I’ll be

The thrill is gone
It’s gone away for good
Oh, the thrill is gone baby
Baby its gone away for good
Someday I know I’ll be over it all baby
Just like I know a man should

You know I’m free, free now baby
I’m free from your spell
I’m free, free now
I’m free from your spell
And now that it’s over
All I can do is wish you well

Whoa...

Chrissy must have had a reality check. I wonder who gave it to him? That’s pretty out of character for him so someone he trusts must have told him of the possible consequences.

Dan Gillerman was on with Megyn a little while ago- and very seriously reminded us that in spite of how we’re all watching this on TV- this is not a game, this is the ME and these are real people. He was very sober.

Only two things can explain Matthew’s erratic commentary - either he’s chosen to eschew any intellectual content in favor of whatever gets ratings; or he’s flat nuts.

Wasn't [Mubarak] our friend for 30 years? Are we denying that?

I cannot understand Matthews' complaint. Chris is the same guy who wrote Life's A Campaign, which is basically a guidebook for duplicity. Most people don't know that because the book was such a bomb.

Throw America under the bus, and then claim America isn’t involved, all we done is ‘watch’ and notice he has no problem pointing fingers, except for at Obama.......

Where is the State Dept.? Don't we have hundreds of people sitting over there in Foggy Bottom with no other job except to know what's going on in Egypt...what are they doing?

Matthews does have a point there. I've wondered often just what our state department folks do. I know we have specialists for any country of any size, and analysts. So what have all those analysts and specialists had to say about Egypt the past few years?

Wouldn't be at all shocked to learn that the State Department has been PCed and multicultied like most other institutions in the US. I expect they spend their time spinning all events and realities about various nations into the proper PC BS rather than engaging in objective analysis.

Well, I think this is easily explained. What with all this cold weather, his tingle was frozen in place.

It is shocking to see Chris express some reasoned logic, to be sure. Of course I’m sure he’ll be under the spell of a relapse within minutes.

I actually saw Chris Matthews make this statement this morning. You know folks, Obama is a Muslim, hates the USA, and is working day and night to bring this country down. The Matthews statement is a tiny glimmer of hope that even that dummy Matthews realizes either that Obama is a moron, buffoon or.....he is actively working to destroy this country in any way he can. Obama should be forced from office by the Democrat Party or impeached immediately!!!

I do believe most people are beginning to realize that Obama is an embarrassment, even jerks like Matthews. Today I have noticed that the tide is turning in favor of Mubarak staying.

Where is the State Dept.?

I think the State Dept., like every other agency or institution, has essentially been shut out of what is becoming an increasingly executive-controlled government. It's controlled by Obama and a handful of unelected (and probably even unknown) "advisors," who make and enact policy all on their own.

It was clear at the very start that Hillary was merely a figurehead, with no power whatsoever; in fact, she didn't even get to go along on Obama's world tours or get to participate in them even remotely. L'etat c'est moi...

People need to watch the dvd at http://agendadocumentary.com (there’s a trailer there).

Indeed, the organized effort that put 0bama in office does have the goal of destroying America.
