Chris Matthews: Is challenging Obama unconstitutional?
Washington Examiner ^ | October 18, 2012 | Byron York

Posted on 10/18/2012 9:43:33 AM PDT by Snuph

On MSNBC’s “Hardball” Wednesday evening, Chris Matthews discussed the theatrics of the presidential debate with James Lipton, longtime host of “Inside the Actor’s Studio.” Lipton offered some unremarkable observations — he called Mitt Romney “the boss who tells lame jokes and waits for everybody to laugh or else” — but what made the segment remarkable was Matthews’ reaction to a portion of the debate in which Romney in essence silenced President Obama, telling him he would have a chance to speak later.

Matthews played a video clip of the exchange, in which Romney accused Obama of cutting the number of oil and gas permits awarded on federal lands:

ROMNEY: How much did you cut them by?

OBAMA: I’m happy to answer the question.

ROMNEY: All right. And it is — I don’t think anyone really believes that you’re a person who’s going to be pushing for oil and gas and coal. [Gestures.] You’ll get your chance in a moment. I’m still speaking.

OBAMA: Well –

ROMNEY: And the answer is I don’t believe people think that`s the case because –

ROMNEY: — that wasn’t the question.

OBAMA: OK.

ROMNEY: That was a statement.

After the clip ended, Matthews seemed appalled. “I don’t think [Romney] understands the Constitution of the United States,” Matthews said. “He’s the president of the United States. You don’t say, ‘You’ll get your chance.’”

Matthews:: "I don’t think [Romney] understands the Constitution of the United States. He’s the president of the United States. You don’t say, ‘You’ll get your chance.’"

Lazamataz: "Yes you do."

Matthews: (starts sputtering and yelling)

Lazamataz: "Shut up and sit down, hack. You'll get your chance."

Is challenging Obama unconstitutional?

I think it’s the eleventeenth amendment.

You’re being too nice. You have to do it like Darth Vader accepting an apology.

“I don’t think [Romney] understands the Constitution of the United States,” Matthews said. “He’s the president of the United States. You don’t say, ‘You’ll get your chance.’”

Watching this clown's long, slow slide into insanity is painful.

It's MSNBC, that's why. They dont even need reporters, they only need a fax machine with a direct feed from The White House.

After 'Tingles' makes a report like this he probably goes to that fax machine and waits for a thumbs up to come across the wire, then if he gets one he weeps and soils his panties.

Matthews’ comment will come in handy — after Romney becomes POTUS.

He’s on MSDNC, the place they put and keep all the loons from the left. That’s why I block it on my TV. If I wanted to watch crazy I’d go to the bus station and watch the less dangerous ones.
