MSNBC's Matthews On Handling Of Egypt: "I Feel Ashamed As An American" (video)
RealClearPolitics ^ | February 4, 2011 | RealClearPolitics

Posted on 02/04/2011 11:40:31 AM PST by i88schwartz

CHRIS MATTHEWS: "What was our plan for transition for our friend? Did we ever talk to him about it, encourage him? That's my view; character and planning. I feel shame about this. I feel ashamed as an American, the way we're doing this. I know he has the change. I know we're for democracy, but the way we've handled it is not the way a friend handles the matter. We're not handling it the way Americans should handle matters like this. I don't feel right about it. And Barack Obama, as much I support him in many ways, there is a transactional quality to the guy that is chilling. I believe in relationships. I think we all do. Relationship politics is what we were brought up with in this country. You treat your friends a certain way. You're loyal to them. And When they're wrong, you try to be with them, you try to stick with them."

That’s only one reason he should feel ashamed.

Tingles is an emotional little pimp who is way to sluggish to be in the media, even as a leftist propagandist.

I’d say there is a huge fall off of true support for the Won, as Chris the Blond begins to indicate. Huge fall off.
The media is invested in continuing to tout support only to save face, but do they actually? O. is finally showing wobbly here and there to even them.

"Transactional" = "Throwing under the Bus" = "Chicago Way"

Well, I’m ashamed that Chris Matthews is an American. But there is a solution for ol’ Chris. It’s one way though. And should he regain his pride in the red, white and blue, there’s no recanting allowed. Maybe we can get a package deal. Chris’ buddies Keith Obermann, Danny Glover, Sean Penn, Barbara Streisand, etc can go to keep Chrissy company. Bye bye.

“Transactional quality” is just liberal gibberish to make them sound intelligent. “Sound” is the operative word here.

I believe it's meant to imply a sort of coldness on Obama’s part. My question is, Chris just now noticed? Or is it he's only now getting around to complaining about it?

It is funny that the liberals in the media who propagated for Obama during the primaries are now admitting that Hillary’s ad about Obama and the emergency call at 3am was right after all.

Since becoming president, Obama hasn’t been right on one issue, domestic or foreign, and I don’t say that as a knee jerk hater. It is the truth. As much as I would like to give him credit for one thing, I can’t think of anything he has done right.

God help us if there is a terrorist attack in this country.

“And Barack Obama, as much I support him in many ways...”

But in the end, he’ll blame Bush or Sarah Palin.

Exactly what I wondered. Perhaps it's leftspeak for "sociopathic?"

He is out of control,over emotional,chameleon like. You never know what is going to come out of his mouth,but you know it will be over the top and mostly non sensible.

Chrissy is a diabetic by self admission and also has a drinking problem. He also looks like he has gained weight,all three tend to make you seem like you need to be in a rubber room.

Chrissy has changed so much since he was on CNBC back in the 90’s. He was moderate right,now he seems to be losing his mind more and more every day. He also has an unnatural hatred and animus for conservative women.
