Posted on 12/01/2011 11:38:48 AM PST by neverdem
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...

JFK taught us quite a bit about leadership. In a battle with the Japanese Navy, JFK fell asleep at the wheel and got his boat run over by a Japanese destroyer.
Reminds me of Henry V at the battle of Agincourt.
“Good King! The French knights are verily approaching! What shall we do?”
JFK....the stuff of legends. Chris Matthews.....the stuff found in dirty diapers.
But that is the narrative. The GOP is going to loose as long as they let the other side define the narrative.
But since the old Blue Bloods want to be invited to the cocktail parties inside the beltway, they will keep doing the same thing.
They only thing we know is the Democrats and Obama want to raise taxes and cut defense. I never heard of any real cuts the democrats agree to cut.
Compromise is not possible on some issues, can your daughter be just a little bit pregnant? Can you have a heart attack and be slightly dead?
If I put a liter of wine in a barrel of sewage, I have a barrel of sewage. If I put a liter of sewage in a barrel of wine, I have a barrel of sewage.
The Malaria Man took a sh!tton of grief from Bobo’s cadre for telling it like it is two weeks ago — that Bobo couldn’t run & win re-election for yellow dog-catcher. No less than 3 interviews where he had the brief lick of courage to throw Bobo under the bus. In total CYA mode now.
Chris Matthews: Tea Party “Un-American” For Not Compromising
Matthews is an idiot. He has no clue about America.
America was never about compromise. It was founded by folks that refused to compromise.
We had a Civil War because we refused to compromise.
We WON World War 1 and World War 2 because we refused to compromise.
We won the Space Race because we refused to compromise.
The we started compromising. We lost the Vietnam War. Our Space program is effectively ended and we ended up with an Idiot that doesn’t even like America as President.
So no Matthews America is not supposed to be about COMPROMISE..............
Matthews is a typical, insane, knee-pad wearing, left wing nut job.
It’s 2011 Chris...you can quit praying for JFK’s return now.
Oh, btw Chris, you moron, JFK’s policies would garner Tea Party support and your loony left Dems today would throw him out of the party for being too conservative.
And while I’m at it Chris, you sorry excuse for a human being, why is it only conservatives have to “compromise” and always agree with you retarded left wingers? Especially when history proves you brain dead morons are NEVER right.
I think that Chrissy is referring to the Tea Party members who were elected to Congress in 2010. They are holding the line against most things the dems want to inflict on us.
Hey, Chrissy, compromising with bad policy is like adding just a little sewage to your drinking water.
Reagan compromised and look what happened. If it wasn’t for his cult-level status in the GOP, he would be heavily criticized by honest Conservatives. I’m not bashing him, I think he sincerely believed that he was doing the right thing at the time, but its time to stop these compromises and make serious spending cuts. The SHTF scenario is going to happen eventually, we should take the hit now. Kicking the can further down the road only exponentially increases how bad things are going to get when it collapses.
Sure, the Tea Partiers should “compromise”, exactly as the Founders did with the British...
Chris (whoever you might be),
Compromise is for wimps (”liberals”) - we do not compromise with them. Period.
And OWS compromised?
