Skip to comments.Dejected and depressed, Chris Matthews on the verge of a week-long drunk

"I don't know what he was doing out there. He had his head down, he was enduring the debate rather than fighting it. Romney, on the other hand, came in with a campaign. He had a plan, he was going to dominate the time, he was going to be aggressive, he was going to push the moderator around, which he did effectively, he was going to relish the evening, enjoying it," Matthews said.
"Here's my question for Obama: I know he likes saying he doesn't watch cable television but maybe he should start. Maybe he should start. I don't know how he let Romney get away with the crap he throughout tonight about Social Security," Matthews complained.
Matthews then demanded that President Obama start watching cable news, specifically his program.
"Where was Obama tonight? He should watch -- well, not just Hardball, Rachel, he should watch you, he should watch the Reverend Al [Sharpton], he should watch Lawrence. He would learn something about this debate. There's a hot debate going on in this country. You know where it's been held? Here on this network is where we're having the debate," Matthews said.
"We have our knives out," Matthews said, admitting his network is trying their best to defend Obama and his policies. "We go after the people and the facts. What was he doing tonight? He went in their disarmed."
"What was Romney doing?" Matthews asked. "He was winning."

Bill The Hobbit Mahr was in twitter meltdown mode.
That was the most delicious Presidential debate, EVER!
Romney just put Obamagabe on the roof of his car and the Kenyan got his damn hide blown off, and the liberal cheerleaders don’t believe what they just saw.
LMAO...best line of the nite!
Why were the MSM pimps so dejected? Because they couldn’t selectively edit and change what Romney said in real time. They’ve been pimping for the Food Stamp President for so long on their terms and conditions that the slap in the face by reality was devastatingly traumatic for them. Just like the arrogant child that is the Food Stamp President, the arrogant children of MSM pimp corp could not tolerate a little parenting.
Even the Liberal pundits had to admit that their Messiah failed miserably. Only the blindest of the blind think Obama won.
I don’t blame Obama at all...what is he going to say? He’s got nothing. Instead of playing golf he should have put in a little effort over the last four years.
Don’t forget Lehrer!!
Gingrich said Romney was going to have to fight both of them — and he did!
“Tears on my pillow,
So Chrisy’s tingle from the “Empty Suit, Empty Chair” is gone!
Does this fool even realize that in his meltdown he is admitting to the world he and his cohorts are not reporters but democrat propagandist masquerading as a reporters?
Kinda takes the air out of the sails of the DU types that are desperately trying to find something positive to spin out of this.
The fact is, without the teleprompter or a partisan audience, Obama is completely adrift. He could not attack or do anything Tingles wanted him to because he is not capable of taking on someone like Romney, who regardless of what you think about his politics, made it on his own prior to getting into politics, not as an affirmative action front man for a political machine with few God given skills and abilities. Romney’s got the smarts and work ethic and drive to win. Obama has none of those.
I wonder how our foreign enemies will interpret obama’s weakness.
In 2008 Matthews leg was tingling over Obama
In 2012 Matthews leg is getting peed on by Obama
And you Chris, are just whining.
He looks like Mussolini when he strikes that pose. Wonder if that is intentional?
“Romney just put Obamagabe on the roof of his car....]
I had to flip on MSNBCrackheads to see the meltdown - it’s quite hilarious.
Obozo showed himself to be the empty sui that he's always been and really showed in his defensive smirking and looking down all night just made him look like he was trying to avoid responsibility....
There were times when I really thought Obozo looked like a deer in the headlights.....really!!
Thank you Prissy Mathews and the rest of the media for never making your teleprompter boy learn how to be president and giving him a pass at every turn!!!!!
This another media October surprise except it's on them!!!!
BWahahahahahaha!!!!! I'm so ecstatic I right now I might pee myself.....
Against my better judgment I just tried lurking at DU and they are “temporarily” shut down...butthurt is a word that comes to mind.
Sure says a lot about mccain don’t it? When a mild little lamb like mitt can wup the ass of the guy that ruined mccain...lol
The real obama showed up tonight...the EMPTY CHAIR.
” - - - There’s a hot debate going on in this country. You know where it’s been held? Here on this network is where we’re having the debate,” Matthews said.”
Yup. And now we know where the center of the energy to destroy America comes from.
The debate for Obama turned out just the way he practiced for it.
It was a drag.
“In 2008 Matthews leg was tingling over Obama
In 2012 Matthews leg is getting peed on by Obama”
Poor Chrissy, he got a real cramp up his leg tonight!!!
More like Chris pooped his pant tonight. :)
Awwwwwwwwww Chrissy Matthews, let me help you dry those tears LOL
Meanwhile Big Bird is trending on twitter..this debate was awesome Romney totally kicked Obama’s Marxist ass it wasn’t even close
I think there are actually many in the MSM that have no idea who their candidate really is. I don’t know who chooses and edits the selected soundbites, but I’m pretty sure that there are plenty of newsreaders who only see the final result. Seeing Zippy unedited must be a shock to their system. Add to that the shock of seeing Romney as he really is, and not as the demon they’ve been led to believe.
Can you get PMSNBC on a golf cart?
This was priceless!! I want to take a still shot of the split screen of Maddow with her scowl and Chrissy with his mussed up hair and look of disbelief!! LOVED IT!!!!
“That was the most delicious Presidential debate, EVER!”
You see, Obama thought he was going on The View, so he was expecting to play the role of eye-candy...
Demonstrated to be the Putz that he is.
>>Does this fool even realize that in his meltdown he is admitting to the world he and his cohorts are not reporters but democrat propagandist masquerading as a reporters?
I doubt it. But I really don’t care. What I *do* care about is the rest of the world understanding what he just admitted. I can’t tell you how many leftists and self-proclaimed “middle-of-the roaders” I know who still think MSNBC is unbiased and Fox is extreme rightwing propaganda.
DU is now allowing non-members to lurk in their threads. It had been closed down to non-members. Almost unanimous agreement that Obama lost. Lots of complaints that Romney’s torrent of “lies” came to fast for the messiah to handle. One poster opined that the debate was a draw, only to be slapped down by other Du’ers.
Mulatto Erich Honecker should of mentioned the free Obamaphone. That would of won him the debate!
Tonight's debate made clear that Obama is just too brilliant, talented, knowledgeable and, overall superior, to deal with the lowly likes of a Mitt Romney.
>>Sure says a lot about mccain dont it? When a mild little lamb like mitt can wup the ass of the guy that ruined mccain
Not that I’m defending McLame (I held my nose and voted for Palin), but I think that it was easier for Zippy to talk big in 2008. He had the advantage of no personal record and was running against Bush. This time around, Zippy has a record. It’s a record he has to run away from. Pretty hard to do that.
Romney needs to keep on offense, and keep Zippy on defense. He needs to do this in a way that makes him look strong, intelligent, competent, and forceful while not looking like a bully. I think he accomplished just exactly that tonight.
I think little chrissy was actually crying... if election night is anything like this, I may actually tune in ti PMSNBC on election night just for the sheer entertainment.
I have to say, I was surprised at how well Mitt carried himself.
He did an EXCELLENT job of telling why he would be a better president.
The left is in full meltdown, even Maher is trashing Obama on twitter, saying he is not bright LOL LOL..if Obama loses in November I will watch MSNBC just to watch them scream and cry it will be AWESOME
I have to admit I was SO worried that Mitt would lose the debate but he came out firing on all cylinders it was great to see..meanwhile Obama kept his head down almost the entire time, wouldn’t even look at Romney(Which was VERY disrespectful) and kept on begging Lehrer for help, the “Can we just move on” statement was the quote of the night
More like Chris pooped his pant tonight..
Chrissy, when was the last time you changed your tampon, cause it sure looks like toxic shock to me.
Oh, so he's cutting back?
