Dejected and depressed, Chris Matthews on the verge of a week-long drunk
http://www.realclearpolitics.com ^ | October 3, 2012

Posted on 10/03/2012 8:18:52 PM PDT by NKP_Vet

"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."

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.

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.

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.

This is what you get when a narcissist like Obozo never gets asked the hard questions and required to defend his positions...

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.....

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.

“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...

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.

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.

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 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
