Matthews Hits Hillary For Denying Photo Showed Her Having Emotional Reaction To Osama Attack
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 05/05/2011 7:11:11 PM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest

On his MSNBC show this evening, Chris Matthews criticized Hillary's lack of "humanity" for denying that, in the photo of her in the Situation Room during the attack on Bin Laden, she was having an emotional reaction. Matthews played video of Hillary suggesting that rather than reacting in horror, she was merely stifling a cough. Riiight.

On the one hand, Hillary richly deserved Matthews' wrist-rap for her blatantly phony explanation. Madame 3 AM obviously didn't want to be seen to be looking weak. But still, it was surprising to witness the harsh terms with which Matthews went after Clinton. Yo Chris, your guy pounded her in the primaries. Chill!

I wasn’t horrified. It was a cough. Yeah, that’s the ticket! Matthews hits Hillary for her phony explanation of Situation Room photo. Ping to Today show list.

Of course, she was just distancing herself from the scene. She knows it’s coming out that the photo was staged and that what they were all looking at so intently and with such grave concern was a black screen because they were in the middle of a transmission blackout.

Hillary is a good leftist, America hating thug...like Matthews. But, after all, she isn’t BLACK!! So, Hussein is Chrissy “leg tingles” true darling, given that extra qualification!!

The real big surprise from this photo is that Biden is seated and is NOT nodding off.

I’d weight the opinion of a Miller moth more than anything coming out of that cretin’s (Matthews) mouth.

As for Hillary - she’s a typical liberal - advanced off of her husband’s coattails, would still be serving burgers if left on her own.

When I want to hear from a real woman, I’ll ask Sarah.

She's having flashbacks about non-existent sniper fire and corkscrew landings.

Seriously, though. She says her stint as SoS is the end of her political career. BS. She has other plans....otherwise she would not be concerned with her image in that photo.

I read her as being concerned
for the SEAL team’s safety.
Thought she was getting an idea
of the calibre, determination and
talent of our military. After all,
it’s not often she gets to see
real men in action.

I’m proud of our military.

She could be proud...

of them...

maybe...

I detest Hillary as much as anyone, but I see nothing wrong with her reaction. It was stupid to make up an excuse about a cough.

I think it’s distancing herself from the scene for plausible deniability. They all were all too proud at first to claim they were watching in real time but now they don’t want to cop to abetting a hit job and want to pin it on the Seals

If they try to “scapegoat” the SEAL team to U.N.
inquisitors, there will be civil war in U.S. streets!

Obama sure looks like he’s sitting tall there. Looks like he’s totally blocked out from the screen.

Matthews can kiss my ass. He lost his right to criticize anyone years ago.

I’m no fan of Hillary, but Matthews? Pulease... The scumbag has defended some of the worst things to take place in our nation’s history. His roll over for Obama has been a classic poodle dance.

I thought the last statement I heard from the regime was that there was no video of the raid? Did they change the story again?

I am surprised she felt the need to invent a cover story. I thought her reaction simply showed the drama of the situation.

Take that photo to any 6th grade class and ask them who is the leader here? Who is in charge? They would all say the General.

Obama would tie with that girl in the back peeping over shoulders. lol

Commander in Chief lol

By his clothes, poster, and demeanor, he looks more like he is only there to clean up once the gig is over. He looks like the least important person in the room. He made a mistake sitting next to the general. It really highlights what a dufus nothing he really is.

____________________________________

I’m probably wrong, but that was the impression I had. She seemed concerned, perhaps even worried about their safety. Of course, didn’t she treat them as butlers while in the WH?

Who knows. But I’m sure those courageous men put all those in the room, who knew they were being photographed, to shame.

Obama looks like a frightened child. The person of importance appears to be the military man in front of the computer in the center of the room, at the head of the table. (I apologize for not knowing his name).

No offense, I am not a fan of Hillary by any stretch, but when I see that picture of her, I don’t really see an emotional reaction. I see someone thinking about what they are seeing, not necessarily an OMG moment. Besides it’s Hillary. She’s a pretty calculating gal. Not too much phases her since Vince Foster. She looks like she could be watching something intently, I do not believe it is an emotional reaction.

Nobody here had stated the fact yet that Leon Panetta said yesterday paraphrasing: ‘Why, we were in the dark during the whole time of the raid, there was a 25 minute blackout of the video, we didn’t know what went on until the mission was over”

So could Hillary react one way or the other?
