RNC's Priebus: Matthews 'unhinged,' 'hysterical,' 'bizarre'
Washington Examiner ^ | 8/30/12 | Paul Bedard

Posted on 08/30/2012 8:53:11 PM PDT by Nachum

Republican Party Chairman Reince Priebus Thursday unleashed a sharp attack on liberal TV critic Chris Matthews, calling the MSNBC Hardball host "bizarre," "unhinged," and "hysterical" for charging the GOP with playing the race card. Appearing on America's Radio News Network with hosts John McCaslin and Chris Salcedo, Priebus said that when challenged by Matthews over race earlier this week, he tried to avoid a fight, though he did call Matthews a "jerk." Recalling the episode, Priebus said, "my reaction was, as it was happening was, OK Chris Matthews is just trying to make a scene for his

I think Mathews needs to get a get a complete physical. He’s got a physical problem. Maybe a brain tumor.

Oh my. I remember reading an expose that described Matthews as a closet conservative who just acts the part. I would rather he just be a flaming liberal.

Tumor? If you gave him an enema, he’d die of brain loss.

That would require a brain.

I think he is a tumor.

“I think Mathews needs to get a get a complete physical.”


I saw him just once tonight while flipping through the channels and had the same thought. He had a deranged look in his eyes like something has come undone. The prospect of watching two of his idols (Carter and Obama) fail must be overstressing his system. LOL

I have no doubt most “pundits” are actors playing a role. You hear talk show hosts that are “conservative” in one city, then become “liberal” when they move on to the next market.

Had we tried, conservatives couldn’t have created a better parody of mainstream journalism than Chris Matthews. He really has came unhinged in the last week.

all that speculation comes from his attitude towards Bush II..as exemplified in this interview with a filmmaker

MATTHEWS: I make this president look like -- you don't watch this program, Alexandra. That has never been the case with me. And anybody watching knows right now, we treat this guy [Bush] with respect. I happen to like him. I voted for him at least once. I'm not going to go any further on that. But the idea that we treat him like a dunce is just inaccurate.

[...] MATTHEWS: Just to straighten the record out, Alexandra, back in the 2000 race, I was one of the few journalists that pointed out that George W. Bush did extremely well in those debates against Al Gore. In fact, I said he won in terms of personality, in terms of likability and fairness and on other grounds. I was the one who took a lot of heat for taking that position.

From the beginning, I've defended him on issues like saying Jesus Christ is his personal philosopher. I've defended him against the liberal elitists who did put him down. So, I don't think it's fair to say that I have in any way abused him. Do you want to take that back or do you want to start over or what here?

Priebus played matthews perfectly.......He let him look like the “hysterical, bizarre, unhinged” non-intellectual—(liar) that he is. And Priebus came off looking like a polite, intelligent person.

I will say that I think Matthews is extremely evil—for he hides the truth on purpose and tries to make the masses-—the Democrat useful idiots—believe all his lies.

I don’’t even know if he has children-—but he and his immoral buddies are trying to destroy this country. They promote Vice and MARXISM ALL THE TIME!!!! All Founders knew that to stay FREE we have to promote Public Virtue and eject socialism. Hayek even reiterated it in an easily understood book-—for any moron to understand.

Why does someone as DUMB as Matthews get a platform to sit at and lie and make accusations with NO REASONING. He is sick and we should write or call the net work complaining about his lack of integrity.

There isn’t a straight jacket big enough to hold Chrissy Matthews. He is a mental patient who has completely lost it, if he wasn’t on TV you would see him by your local Ralphs Supermarket talking to himself. Just watch and wait, when Obama loses, MSNBC is going to be MUST SEE TV..DVR it, put it on full blast, you won’t be able to contain your laughter watching them all crap their pants and have tantrums

Unrequited man love brings pain to many a modern day closet perv.

Along with the pain, it can also brings dementia.

Chrissy is aflicted with both.

Matthews is a drunk, plain and simple.

He is notorious around DC for being drunk and rude to waitresses.

His wife is a local news anchor so none of his antics get any publicity.

Matthews has since defended his behavior. He told Politico, "It is obvious that this is something I care passionately about: race was abused by white politicians in my lifetime,

Do you notice that the stupid SoB's own party, the Democrats, were the party abusing blacks with terror, filibustering and hanging out with others wearing the white sheets within his worthless lifetime.

Oh how I hate hypocrisy!

Oh, how I would love for Todd Palin to bump into Matthews one of these days. For all the vile things he has said about Sarah and his family, who could blame Todd if he proceeded to knock all of his teeth out of his head! That would be must see TV!!

They likely know that if Romney wins, Comcast cuts the money-loser MSNBC off.

Y’know, I’ve wondered for a while now if something isn’t genuinely (as in, medically) wrong with Chris Matthews. I remember the guy back in his CNBC days. He was liberal, but he was usually fair, and a lot of times had some interesting things to say. Now, he’s just out in the MSNBC ozone. He doesn’t even make sense a lot of the time now.

“Why does someone as DUMB as Matthews get a platform to sit at and lie and make accusations with NO REASONING. He is sick and we should write or call the net work complaining about his lack of integrity.”

I think MSNBC needs to revamp its’ entire programming. Who in their right mind would have Al Sharpton on a program? Fox News got criticized for having him as a guest, and MSNBC gives him a forum! This man belongs in jail for his part in the Tawana Brawley, Duke University, and the Jena, La. hoaxes. Do you think the problem could be the management of MSNBC?

We grew up in a country where appeals to race have been awful, terrible....What is this supposed to mean? I never appealed to anyone on their race. I did appeal to their behavior or lack of civility, education and manners no matter what the race was. Talk about unhinged and bizzaar.

Well. Matthews revealed why he carries the racism line where no one has gone before. He sees himself as a civil rights hero because he drives his car from his lily white enclave through the streets of “black majority” Washington. Meanwhile, he sits there with Sharpton , who show just how far the leftists are willing to take a real race hustler, making him arguably the most prominent black commentator in America
