Dan Rather: Obama's Opponents 'Want to Cut His Heart Out and Throw His Liver to the Dogs' By Noel Sheppard Created 05/05/2013 - 11:28am
Dan Rather on Sunday once again made a comment about President Obama's opponents that some might find a bit over the top.
Appearing on the syndicated Chris Matthews Show, Rather said, "These people politically want to cut his heart out and throw his liver to the dogs" (video follows with transcript and commentary):
DAN RATHER: All of these things weve said about what the president could do, should do, might have, could have, but the central thing to keep in mind is his opponents - you talk about taking them out to dinner, making nice with them - these people politically want to cut his heart out and throw his liver to the dogs. That does make it very, very difficult to come on nice to them.
CHRIS MATTHEWS, HOST: Yeah, it causes indigestion over dinner dont you think?
KATTY KAY, BBC: Is that what they do in Texas Dan?
MATTHEWS: By the way, Im with you Dan because I dont know how much, I do think he doesn't enjoy the company of his fellow politicians. Excuse me, Mr. President, youre one of them.
For those that have forgotten, Rather made the same comment on the Chris Matthews Show back in November 2010.
Wouldn't you say that's a bit of an overstatement?
More importantly, hasn't the President since the day he was first inaugurated treated his opponents with the same disdain?
Liberal media members rarely consider that.
It’s simply not true. The Rev. Jessie Jackson was caught on air saying he wanted to “cut Obama’s nuts off”. No heart or liver even mentioned.
That’s the proper response I was looking for - “pigs”.
Jesse Jackson wanted to cut his nuts off.
Looks like someone already beat him to it.
I wouldn't do that to the dogs!
Besides, the predator-prey relationship is reversed in his case...
I would not treat my dogs so badly.
Oh and Dan, besides the fact you attempted to do
the same to GW, it’s because Obama is destroying
the heart of our nation for that he should be
thrown to PIGS.
And his kidneys to the badgers!
Isn’t this what Rather wanted to do to GWB?
Incidents like Benghazi continually remove all doubt.
Not what he said.
He said: nuts out.
Uh, no, Dan. We just want the media to hold Obama to the same standards that Bush was.
Dan Rather, perennial suck up.
Obama does have enemies that would do that. Just not who Rather is thinking of.
The Taliban, Iran, and Al Qaeda would happily do that to Obama, literally. And throw acid on his daughters for the crime of attending school.
Rather is afraid of the wrong people. Fool.
Appearing on the syndicated Chris Matthews Show......Rather projected onto "Obama's opponents" his own hostility toward former Presidents George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush, while revealing that he watched "Shakespeare In Love" on disk the night before.
“Dan Rather: Obama’s Opponents ‘Want to Cut His Heart Out and Throw His Liver to the Dogs’”
The dogs would say turnabout is fair play.
dfwgator ~ Looks like someone already beat him to it.
Saudi Arabia has no race problem today because historically the arabs preferred their black slaves castrated.
One could argue they still do today...
What’s The Frequency Kenneth?
Interesting nuance. Cutting them off means that there is something to cut off. Cutting the out means they never developed in the first place.
