Marco Rubio’s speech did not send a thrill up Chris Matthew’s leg
Washington Examiner ^ | February 13, 2013 | Charlie Spiering

Posted on 02/13/2013 3:13:57 AM PST by theruleshavechanged

Matthews described the speech as “tinkertoy” and “juvenile,” “primitive,” and “something you would hear on the high school debating team.”

Matthews is just trying to ruin Rubio’s chances of running for President by name calling Alinsky style.

I think Chris is more of a comedian, than a journalist.

The lefty media are not even funny in a sad funny way anymore.
There kind of like the joker who went to far and noone is laughing anymore.

I dont care about Matthews,But in My opinion Rubio is an Amateur and NOT ready for the Big time.
I will take Rand Paul or Dr.Benjamin Carson.
Enough of the Usual Platitudes,it makes my Hair Hurt. Im Ready for Logical Common sense solutions as Expressed By Mr.Carson,as he said his ideas are not Conservative they are Common sense! That Man is a Breath of Fresh air,what we need,not more pandering Bilge about middle class this,Rich that,we are all Americans,we need Traditonal American Values stated in Common sense terms,not poll tested Crap,Rubio is another Establishment hack

On the local news here in Boston, all they're talking about is Dorner and Rubio's water grab. Zero got a one-liner.

That's good enough for me.

The GOP was called "violent" by the MSM (NBC) at the start of the SOTU.

This is another attack.

Matthews is only impressed by demagoguery from a radical sociopath.

Mathews is an idiot but Rubio didn’t send a thrill up my leg either. Comprende?

The GOP is writing off traditional America and Western culture so they can go FT.

Couldn't agree more.

It looks like the money is going to Rubio. Which candidate is the Tea Party going to rally behind? It will kill me if we divide our vote again. I'm hoping that Sarah endorses someone early.

Main stream media calls Rubio "primitive", "all wet" and then laughs at him? I am outraged! They are clearly using carefully chosen dog whistle speech to insinuate Rubio is a wet back and that all Mexicans are some kind of unevolved monkey men that deserve to be ridiculed! I am disgusted by this hate speech and I demand Matthews (and the other disgusting racist media outlets) apologize to Rubio and ALL Americans of proud Mexican decent!

I have no use for Chris Matthews, but Rubio always sounds like that to me. It feels like Mr. Rogers explaining GOPe politics to a group of five years. Simplistic and patronizing.

Maybe Sissy Matthews should invite Senator Rubio on his show and run his moronic mouth...in front of the man...

We do err to think Conservative Americanism IS more complicated than a high school debate.

Though the founders argued and discussed eloquently, the principle of "all men created equal with rights", is not a difficult subject to grasp nor explain.


Any problems one encounters is in aligning the simplicity of individual freedom with ... the law, which all too often has become some convoluted mobius loop of personal desire and speciel interest as opposed to what is right or wrong ... what is good and bad .. all based on God's desire for His creation to just have fellowship with Him.

See ... we lose sight of the fact that God created us so He could have someone to talk to and enjoy.


It is NOT complicated

Odd, that is what I thought applied to whatever it was that Chris Matthews may happen to blurt out.

Chris Matthews is much more impressed by form than content. Content was never a thing he could comprehend, on several different levels.

Dipsomania and dyspepsia are no ways to go through life.

Maybe that’s how you have to explain GOP politics to the low information crowd. In fact, the five year old level might be too advanced.

Possible scenario: Rubio takes the forefront (for the conservatives, of course, but ignore his amnesy push) into the primaries to fend off the half-dozen other 'conservatives' who show up. After a few bloodbaths and several of the 'conservatives' drop out, jBush steps up and becomes the annointed one. [Rubio, being the good little soldier, and being younger, will get his chance later -- 2024 or so.]

The next 'it's his turn' guy is Jeb -- if he wants it. And he has been making some noise in that direction.

The 'conservatives' will be splintered again, unless they wise up real soon -- which they won't. Look at the many GOP frontrunnter threads from 2012, each one to falter soon thereafter: Bachmann, Perry, Trump, Cain, Gingrich, Santorum, and finally, resulting in Romney, who lost the general.

It is much more straight forward than the contortions and gyrations libtards go through to convince the public that screwing us is good for the country.

Have you seen the inteligence of people who vote lately? I’m being serious. Simplistic is exactly what we need. Especially coming from Government.

I'd like to see the Establishment push Jeb. Conservatives are done with the Bushes.

If Sarah ran, she could have knocked out Romney. So rallying behind a single conservative is possible.

I see a race divided between Ryan, Rubio, Paul and possibly the new doctor guy.

Consider the source, his remaining 15-20 viewers, and ignore him.

Rubio appears every bit as white as I am. His forebearers would have qualified for the Cuban elite.
