In an appearance Tuesday at Washington, D.C.'s Politics & Prose bookstore, MSNBC "Hardball" host Chris Matthews told a standing room-only audience that his new book "Jack Kennedy: Elusive Hero" was important because it taught "leadership," and that's something many people today don't know about - especially under President Barack Obama, Jeff Poor at The Daily Caller reported.
Chris Matthews on the Tea Party: "This crowd doesn't want to deal because they believe the word 'deal' is bad," Matthews said...

There's a video of this boob, Chrissy, at the source.
Where would America be if the original Tea Partiers (and related revolutionaries) “compromised” ‘like Americans’??
Who is Chris Matthews?
His ilk looted this country out of 16 trillion dollars, created a perpetual underclass, zombie legions of takers, and we are the ones that won’t compromise?
I think the Tea Party should compromise. Instead of fighting to the death to cut Federal Spending 30% we should compromise and accept a mere 15% next year.
When you get right down to it, compromise and accomodation are both forms of moral weakness.
The “no compromising” attribute of the Tea Party is what could save us. If Mitt or Newt does become president, both of whom are too liberal, then we’ll need to stack the House and Senate with Tea Party people just to keep the president in check.
This from the jihadi-loving, “Don’t question my patriotism!” bunch.
It tough to lead or compromise “from the back seat of the car” as imposed by Zero.
Remember that quote ?
What a bizzare statement.
The TEA party is a block of voters.
We vote for candidates, not legislation.
We apply pressure to legislators who vote to raise taxes.
We support legislators who understand that a further increase in taxes damages the country.
Is Chris Matthews suggesting the TEA party voters compromise on who they vote for?
Or is he suggesting that we abandon the application of pressure on legislators, thus making us a meaningless group?
Or does Chris Matthews misunderstand, or purposely misrepresent, who the ‘TEA party’ actually is?
Last summer, Chris said he stood alone, staring up at Mt Rushmore for two hours.
Uh ... the man has serious issues.
I don’t seem to recall Krissy Tingles blowing a fuse over “deem and pass”, “I won- I’ll trump you on that,” the passage of cap and tax, stimulus, Obamacare, Dodd-Frank, etc. with no (or almost no) Republican votes, endless Executive Orders, and on and on...
Come a long way from “I won,” haven’t we, Chrissy?
When pure compromises with the impure, what do you get?
When good (individual freedom) compromises with evil (communism), what do you get?
Matthews idea of compromise is like a rapist asking their victim to wear something special before their big date.
That would mean that America should have compromised with Hitler. America should have compromised with the Japanese. America should have compromised with the Ku Klux Klan. America should have compromised with the Muslim terrorists before they attacked us on 9/11.
All that would have been “very American” in Matthew's view.
