Bridge Too Far: Matthews Claims Cantor Could Be Culpable For Death Of School Kids
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 09/09/2011 5:07:43 PM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest

Eric Cantor: potentially responsible for the death of school kids. That was the despicable depth to which Chris Matthews has sunk in his desperate attempt to stir up support for President Obama's latest stimulus scheme.

On this afternoon's Hardball, Matthews suggested that by refusing to spend hundreds of billions on PBO's latest list of supposedly shovel-ready projects, Virginia Republican Rep. Cantor is endangering the lives of kids riding school buses across ostensibly rickety bridges in his district. The Hardball host helpfully ran a scroll of all such bridges in Cantor's district.

Chris Matthews might have hit a new low: suggesting Eric Cantor could be responsible for the death of school kids if he doesn’t support Obama’s latest stimulus scheme. Ping to
Today show list.

Oh no... they are on to us. We conservatives want to kill kids, kitties, puppies, unions, grandma, holidays, parakeets, Disneyland, grass, heroes, vegetables, clouds, rivers, Mighty Mouse, Eskimos... what did I miss?

Its hard to tell when Mathews hits a new low, He hits new lows so often.

I am lucky though, I only hear about his new lows here, in Free republic, I would rather rip my eyes out than watch the dick on TV.

If Obama ever comes out of the closet I am sure he will find Mathews just outside his door.

The former Jimmy Carter appointee, Chris Matthews, keeps it in the antisemitic family by blaming Jews for any future tragedy that happens in the world and America.

Jimmy Carter is an antisemite and Chris Matthews is one, too.

Matthews has no such thing as a low.

It doesn't exist and nothing he froths, surprises me any more.

One of the great advances in civil rights laws occurred when "they" stopped bussing black children all over the place. That way they were not at as much risk of crashing through old bridges as before. Then, when the courts ordered "bussing" anyway, the risk went up.

Just been one thing after another when it comes to bussing children over rickety old bridges.

I think we know which side Chris is on, eh!

These people are despicable.

Truthfully, I wouldn’t put it past some brain crazed leftoid to get ideas from people like Chrissy and resort to committing a violent act just to “prove” republicans like Cantor are responsible.

Barak Obama spent $787 billion in “shovel ready” porkulus 1.0 and our roads are still falling apart. Now he wants porkulus 2.0 for another $450 billion. No way. The only way to fix our economy is to fire Obama, which will happen in November 2012.

See post 9; I should have added not very well educated and he claims to have worked in the piece corps before his enchanted resume landed him a job as a hall guard.

Especially parakeets and vegetables plus I’ve been yearning deeply to, as Hoffa Jr would say, “take out” Bambi and anything small furry and cute.

Interesting because Jimmy Carter did get schoolkids killed at bus stops by playing around with daylight savings time.

Didn’t the President’s stimulus bill fix any of these bridges? Or does stimulus money only go to the President’s supporters?

Matthews just had a moment of unreasonable fear that somebody might take him seriously.

Ha! Ha! Ha! Hey Chris.....those kids are going to be broke because of dumbass Democrats like you, so they won’t have any cars to drive over the bridges. You Democrats are taxing them so much that they’re all going to die trying to walk to the hospital that has no Doctors anyway because you Democrats killed health care in this country. Do everyone a favor and go jump off of one of those bridges.

Mathews has lost it but its fun to rip him none-the-less; Either jail Cantor right now, or ......ask what happened to the original stimulus.

First of all, the majority of the crumbling infrastructure is not but hype and boondoggle. I personally know of a person who works for a company that tears down the bridges, takes the beams, inspects them, sandblasts and paints them and then re-installs them in other bridges. Nothing wrong except cosmetic defects and a need for business.

Is there a limit to 'vile'? Never. . .when it comes to the Left and it's mouthpieces; which include Matthews.

Does he not realize that those bridges are load tested every year and if they won’t take it the load limit will be reduced so that no school busses will cross them? DUH
