Chris Matthews Admits to Verbally Accosting GOP Delegates at Restaurant
NewsBusters ^

Posted on 08/31/2012 6:16:31 PM PDT by chessplayer

Just hours after a producer for deranged MSNBC host Chris Matthews was accused of physically assaulting Republicans outside the party’s national convention last night, Matthews himself has admitted to verbally confronting several GOP delegates at a restaurant in Tampa, Florida calling them a “douchebag convention.”

According to The Hill newspaper, the perpetually angry liberal television host confronted the delegates early Friday morning following taunting questions they asked about whether he felt “thrilled” following GOP nominee Mitt Romney’s acceptance speech.

The controversy began, according to a witness interviewed by The Hill when Matthews twice refused to acknowledge a New York delegate named Eric Ulrich who had greeted him. This prompted other Republican patrons of the restaurant to begin heckling him for the perceived slight:

He headed back into the restaurant to mix it up with them. “I wanted to confront them,” Matthews said, describing his exchange with the men as “towel-snapping” among guys.

Matthews said he told the rowdy group, “What’s this, a douchebag convention?”

The Republicans became angry and retorted back.

“I told him that’s next week," said New York delegate Anthony Nunziato, referring to the Democratic convention in Charlotte, N.C., that will start on Tuesday.

Little Chrissy can’t take the pressure. He can’t understand why everyone doesn’t love Barry as much as he does.

He needs to be sent to the asylum for treatment. He is mentally ill.

Seriously, why doesn’t Comcast fire his butt?

Mathews has never been enough of a man even to understand towel snapping. When he was in the locker room he was merely teased and ridiculed, then ignored.

Mathews is an alcoholic who appears to have fallen off the wagon. I guess you could call that mentally ill.

Because the CEO of Comcast is a buddy of Obama’s. He visited him on Martha’s Vinyard.

Sharpton (I’m convinced) was put in place there by Obama to fuel the race baiting.

WHI tipped us that the ‘race’ issue would be HUGE for his re-election. This is all coordinated.

Exec at NBC parent company Comcast raises $1.2 million for Obama

07/01/2011

http://dailycaller.com/2011/07/01/exec-at-nbc-parent-company-comcast-raises-1-2-million-for-obama/

A Washington Post story by Perry Bacon Jr. and Cecilia Kang reports $1.2 million was raised for President Barack Obama’s reelection campaign at the home of Comcast’s Executive Vice President David L. Cohen. MSNBC is a unit of Comcast’s NBC Universal.

“Campaign officials said about 800 people, each giving at least $100, attended the first event, at a Hyatt hotel,” Bacon and Kang wrote. “Later in the evening, Comcast’s executive vice president, David L. Cohen, hosted about 120 people in his home for a dinner, each of the attendees giving at least $10,000 for Obama’s reelection campaign.”

The story also pointed out that Cohen had “successfully shepherded the regulatory review of Comcast’s merger with NBC Universal earlier this year.”

The timing is curious because on Thursday, White House press secretary Jay Carney directly intervened on the president’s behalf with MSNBC management after Time magazine editor-at-large Mark Halperin called Obama “a dick” while appearing on the network. That intervention is believed to have led to the immediate indefinite suspension of Halperin.

Comcast Employees Top Donors to Obama

ABC News’ Devin Dwyer (@devindwyer) reports:

Employees of media giant Comcast have contributed more money to President Obama’s reelection bid than employees from any other organization, according to a new analysis of Federal Election Commission data by the Center for Responsive Politics.

Comcast employees contributed nearly $80,000 directly to Obama for America and roughly $200,000 to the Obama Victory Fund, a joint account benefitting both the Obama campaign and Democratic National Committee, through the first half of 2011 records show.

Comcast, the nation’s largest video and internet services provider, is the parent company of NBCUniversal, which owns broadcast networks NBC and Telemundo among other assets.

President Obama has recently spent time with top Comcast executives, attending an intimate fundraiser at the home of Comcast executive vice president David Cohen in Philadelphia in June and a private “social reception” at the Martha’s Vineyard estate of Comcast CEO Brian Roberts earlier this week.

He will be institutionalized at some point, although it might be done quietly. Once upon a time he struck me as a reasonably amicable lefty, but he has become an addled viper.
