Chris Matthews asked a question Sunday that should truly offend people on both sides of the aisle.

During the syndicated program bearing his name, Matthews asked his panel, "Has President Obama put himself at political risk if the big cuts do not wreak havoc?"

Chris is saying that Obama must wreak havoc to reduce his political risk.

ie the worse we do the better he does.

And Chrissie is openly hoping as many people as possible suffer so His Precious’s poll ratings aren’t hurt.

Very much his way of thinking: “Thank God for Sandy.”

without lifting a finger, he will claim that his deft management skills allowed him to carefully balance the precious dollars that the evil republicans didn’t steal from him.

then he will dare anyone to prove otherwise.

think, “I saved the economy when it was on the brink of collapse”. same thing.

Years ago, Rush Limbaugh recognized that Obama wanted to bring socialism to America. Limbaugh said, "I hope he fails" and caught a lot of grief for it.

Now Obama is president and he has just lost a political fight over the budget. Chris Matthews basically says, "I hope the country collapses" but it's no big deal.

Poor Chrissie still using "Big Cuts" terminology.
Think the dirty bastard had a brief flash of reality and it's panicking him.

Precisely. There is no downside for the African communist. If there is indeed "havoc", or if the economy continues to slide into the abyss, it's the Republicans' fault; if the economy recovers, hooray for the great Ubama, who saved the economy, "in spite of intense Republican opposition to his policies".

Except it would show that cutting government spending isn’t impossible and would embolden people making that argument and discredit people who argue against cuts.

Doesn’t Chrissy realize that Obama’s lies change from day to day, and that he isn’t supposed to raise any questions about that process?

Sequestration is not big cuts.

Why even post anything from The Spitter?

If idiots on the right continue across the board from social media to all the blogs and boards spout his crap off we’ll never be rid of him.

It the right-of-center would QUIT posting this Marxist’s retard comments it would be helpful.

Quit making him relevant.

We do not live in a world of rational debate anymore. Matthews’ question clearly shows the president’s power and popularity trumps, or at the very least, is as important as the well-being of the country. But if challenged on it, he’ll yell at you with spit coming from the corners of his mouth, not letting you get a word in edgewise. It’s “how things are done” now.

No kidding!

Compared to last year, there is no cut at all; just a smaller increase.

Hissy Chrissie knows the sequester is supposed to help doom our economy and create chaos. it is one step he needs to try to get Marxism in place.

Chrissy will surely get a thrill up his leg if people start dropping dead on the streets.I,personally,derive enormous pleasure listening to great music,being with family or a nice piece of sirloin...medium rare.Filthbags like Chrissy get off on human suffering...particularly the kind that they blame on Republicans (which is basically *all* suffering...everywhere).

Thanks chessplayer.
Matthews asked his panel, "Has President Obama put himself at political risk if the big cuts do not wreak havoc?"
He put ALL of US at risk, and plans to keep doing so, in hopes of political benefit to himself and his Puppet Masters. Why should anyone give a d@## whether Zero suffers from his own misdeeds? Pissy Chrissy isn't a journalist. Partisan Media Shills ping.

After all, how the matters of layoffs, deferred maintenance, closed parks, national defense degradation, et al affect Obama is the first and foremost concern.

If more than half the people in this country opened their eyes it would be Mathews and his fellow media people who would be at risk for repeating everything obama says.

If there IS havoc, it will be purposeful. Not that the press will be looking into it... but IF there is any havoc, that gives Rs the perfect opening to say “why did pres cut this necessary program when he could have instead reduced or eliminated [insert random wasteful item]?

0dumbo’s done messed up. We be cuttin’ fools now that we can bring the waste to light.

>’Has Obama Put Himself at Political Risk....<

.
What risk are they talking about?

He won his second term — he’ll go scott free from now on whatever he decides. What could possibly happen to him.

In 2016 Obama will declare himself Sultan for Life, abolish the Constitution and will send SCOTUS and Congress home (hopefully without pay).

It’s probably the opposite. Any president will have bad times held against him. If there are good times, he will benefit.

what “political risk”?

zerO won his second term and went into the “can’t touch this” smirk mode ...does Chrissie think zerO is worried about dropping below 40% in the ratings?

All he has to do to keep the liberal whites happy is to keep sending Michelle, the court jester, to do late night and kid’s TV and lecture folks about healthy habits..... and keep the food stamps flowing to cover junk food

all he has to do to keep the Hispanics happy is keep opening the prisons and the borders

all he has to do to keep the Blacks happy is to keep being Black and keep threatening to grab the wealth of “rich peopel” so he can redistribute their fair share

If he drops below 40% so what? He has the IRS and he has security forces, well armed, in every federal govt agency, and he has military generals whose litmus test for promotion and retention was answering whether they would fire on US citiznes if ordered and how fast can they make accommodations for transgenders in the military

Yes Chris, it’s all about Obama, not the people who are suffering.

But wait, nobody “suffers” under Obama’s Rule, that’s why he got Reelected by a margin of more than four Million Votes over his opponent.

No Job, (thanks to Obama) 99 Weeks of Unemployment Checks. No food, no worries, Obama doubled the number of people collecting Food Stamps in only four years. No Job after 99 Weeks of Unemployment, time to get Social Security Disability for the rest of your Life like the other (record) Ten Million people (and counting) who already do.

Just read the CBO expects record Tax Revenue this year, supposedly higher than the RECORD Tax Revenues set back in 2007 (when we had those Evil Bush Tax Cuts for the Filthy Rich).

Never mind the six years of increased population growth that should be producing a whole lot more Tax Revenue than back in 2007...

The only havoc that will be created will be the havoc that Obama is going to dump on the Republicans over the next two years as his strategy is to reinstall Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House.
Get ready for the tried and true Democrat bilge about being the party of the rich,wanting to starve children,kill old people,decimate the military. Of course all of those things are being accomplished by Obama as we Speak,the only difference is Republicans let them get away with it and don’t show that 4&5 dollar gas,obamacare,rising food prices,unemployment are destroying the very people obama says he wants to help.
When you go to the doctor for a procedure and he says you can’t have it because Kathleen Sebilius says you are to old and you have had your quality of life years,so take a pill and go home,PEOPLE WILL UNDERSTAND THAT.That is because the Independent Payment Advisory Boards 15 members can’t be found by Obama,so that makes the abortion queen a health dictator and her own Death Panel,she decides and her alone whether you get treatment and you have No appeal.How many Americans know this? Sure would be nice to have representatives that would mount a fact based counterattack with this and tons of other examples of how our dear leader CARES ABOUT US,wouldn’t it?
Kind of makes you think there is some kind of conspiracy between the Republicans and Democrats,a lot of sound and fury signifying nothing,except us losing our country.

Obama has opened himself to attack.

Imagine the next boondoggle juxtaposed against laid off workers. Obama chooses unnecessary trips over your job kind of thing.
