Skip to comments.Matthews: Ryan Wants To 'Screw' The Poor
Posted on 08/14/2012 6:00:27 AM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest
On Morning Joe today, Chris Matthews exposed the ugly face of class warfare politics at its most primal.
Matthews claimed that Paul Ryan wants to "give" money to rich people but "doesn't like" people who depend on government, and indeed, as a conservative, wants to "screw" them.

Chris Matthews plays the class-warfare card against Paul Ryan at its most despicable. Ping to Today show list.
He cares deeply about the poor but his caring doesn’t manifest itself in throwing money at them. He realizes that things like the War on Poverty only made poverty harder on people and that government can never be the solution. Not caring and not throwing money around are very different.
Shouldn’t Cwissy be giving his riches to the poor? Oh yeah, he’s only generous with other people’s money like all good communists.
Pray for America
One of Obama's Reelection Committee's most faithful lieutenants. With Ryan in the mix, Obama's MSM Reelection Committee will amp up its goosestep in Brownshirt Nazi style, giving full allegiance to the Fuehrer and attempting to savage any opposition.
Dooooosh bag sez what?
Nobody can out tingle pissy moutthews
Too late, the Liberals have been banging the ‘poor’ like a screen door in a hurricane for donkey's years!!!
OMG! One of the most awesome pics. Ever.
Fey little Matthews wants to Be Screwed by Obama.
Poor little catcher.
Obama believes that no one is personally responsible for their failures. Further, he believes that those who have been successful have generally been so because they were lucky, and often because they screwed other people and made them fail. Thus, there is no personal responsibility for inner city slums, gangs, teen age pregnancy, welfare dependence, and high rates of out of wedlock births. All that happened because government didn't do enough for those people, and because successful people used them and screwed them.
Ryan believes in personal freedom, equality of opportunity, and personal responsibility, but not in forced homogenization of outcome. He believes that we should encourage people to have dreams and pursue them, and that our country should celebrate those who have worked hard and achieved, not vilify and punish them. He, and most on the right also feel that we have a personal responsibility to be charitable and to help others who need help, but that arbitrary ‘redistribution’ of wealth by the government is essentially theft.
It's a simple dichotomy Chris.
Kudos to dead. Awesome. Simply awesome.

Such an intellect.
That “tingle that ran up” Chris Matthews’ leg, may in fact, turn out to be one of the beginning symptoms of peripheral neuropathy, a progressive degenerative condition of the nerve function of the legs associated with impaired circulation.
He have learned by now it had almost nothing to do with the ascension and immaculation of his idle idol.
I have to tell you, you know, it’s part of reporting this case, this election, the feeling most people get when they hear Barack Obama’s speech. My, I felt this thrill going up my leg. I mean, I don’t have that too often.
Can’t speak for Paul Ryan, but I actually like and care about poor people. What I hate is POVERTY.
The leftists and fake liberals evidently place a high value on Poverty, since they do everything they can to create more of it. Without poverty and dependency, how would the left get votes (excluding fraud)?
That's Chrissy alright, a "progressive degenerate".
The intellectual dishonesty of the mainstream media is kicking in to high gear now.
I think it’s finally dawned on a bunch of these arrogant a**es that Obama really could lose this, and they are going to do EVERYTHING in their power to make sure that doesn’t happen.
A “shellacking” it was.
Shouldn't this cause us on this side of the political divide, to begin to realize that perhaps the vaunted media has lost its power to persuade? The media played “gotcha”, they omitted key facts, they distorted Republicans’ statements, they editorialized, and they manipulated headlines.
They still got bludgeoned.
We seem to be surprised that the Obama smears on Romney haven't really taken hold. Should we be?
The main-stream media had sold us in 2008 on that bill-of-goods that Barack Obama turned out to be. Is it not possible that the media completely squandered its credibility in doing so?
We have subscription numbers and Nielsen ratings that prove that statistically the main-streamers are hemorrhaging customers. Can we not conclude that their viewers and readers are merely hard-core leftists who crave confirmation for their warped worldview, and would be Obama voters anyway?
I’d bet my net worth that Ryan has given more to charity, both in terms of percent of income and in total,
than Mathews has,
even though Ryan is much younger than Mathews.
even though Ryan is much younger than Mathews.
And, makes much less of a paycheck too!
It’s a pretty safe bet with most liberals that any conservative will be giving a higher percentage of their income to charity than the liberal.
And, when liberals do “give to charity”, it’s usually for something only other rich liberals benefit from, like “the symphony” or “the arts” in general.
To paraphrase think Sinkmeister:
No “arts” “ever fed a hungry child”.
With the trillions spent on them and the crime/murder/misery they visit upon productive people, the poor SCREW this country for more than anyone screws them.
Actually, ensuring the long term viability of Medicare and possibly introducing some variation in Medicare payment based on means testing helps the poor, as I understand that is what Ryan’s plan does. Also, reducing taxes and spending across the board and encouraging a prosperous private sector also helps the poor, by giving them jobs.
That must be that the tingle was all about.
Wow! Lots of great pics have been posted on FR over the years, but that is absolutely one of the best ever!
