Chris Matthews sours on Obama
By DYLAN BYERS | 5/15/13 7:05 PM EDT
President Obama "obviously likes giving speeches more than he does running the executive branch," Chris Matthews said tonight.
Yes, you read that right: The MSNBC host who in 2008 felt a "thrill going up my leg" after hearing Obama speak has grown disenchanted. Tonight's episode of Hardball saw Matthews delivering a rare, unforgiving grilling of the president as severe as anything that might appear on Fox News.
"What part of the presidency does Obama like? He doesn't like dealing with other politicians -- that means his own cabinet, that means members of the congress, either party. He doesn't particularly like the press.... He likes to write the speeches, likes to rewrite what Favreau and the others wrote for the first draft," Matthews said.
"So what part does he like? He likes going on the road, campaigning, visiting businesses like he does every couple days somewhere in Ohio or somewhere," Matthews continued. "But what part does he like? He doesn't like lobbying for the bills he cares about. He doesn't like selling to the press. He doesn't like giving orders or giving somebody the power to give orders. He doesn't seem to like being an executive.

No, but if a gnat wore pants and could pee in his pants, Chrissy would have the commensurate attention span.
Nah, this is just the setup of the new meme which is zero is passive and uninvolved in his job.....
Years back there was an article on FR with a former spook saying that once Barry outlived his usefulness, the fall would be fast and total and the media would lead the way (being fed info behind the scenes)
This is evidence that he was not making things up.
obama had usefulness musta missed that
Now it’s all about protecting Hillary!
Chrissy is just showing us how fair and balanced a journalist he is. s/
Nah! Just laying the groundwork for Hillary 2016.
No, I think he is finally taking meds that help him deal with delusions, formally known as ob@ma.
I’m becoming more and more convinced that Soros has determined that Zippy has outlived his usefulness.
I am with you. One thing about these communist/socialists...they know they can only get to a certain point before being stopped, then they pull the plug and walk away, only to plan for the next phase years later when it comes.
They get their battles won, scurry away, and come back to start where they left off. How much has our society degraded over the years after they have popped in and out of office.
They may realize they are at the stop in this phase of the advance before it goes too far, too fast and just walk away for a bit...only to come back and pick up where they left off.
Incredible patience these bastards have, I tell ya.
He was very useful. You are just on the wrong side of the fence.
i hope her what difference does it make comment haunts her through the next auction for POTUS in fact i hope they carve it on her headstone
All Obama’s gotta do is call Matthews and it will send that tingle up his leg again.
right where i want to be
The Marxist MSM pushed it to the limit.
Today is the limit.
So now, MSM is pretending to “pull back and get reasonable,” to regain credibility so they can push Hillary 2016.
They’ve accomplished all the damage to the USA that’s possible thru Obama. He is a condom that is no longer of use.
Now it’s time to install Obama #2, aka Hillary.
Did something tingle that dead brain of his?
Cat Scan the Dude there may be signs of life in that vast wasteland of Libturd mass that poses as a human brain!
Benghazi can destroy the entire Democrat party. It can shred it apart into little, individual pieces. And they know it. Obama isn’t done yet, but the Democrats will even throw him overboard if he’s going to sink their ship. The PARTY is all important, not Obama.
Incrementalism works. They know it. And effective at wielding it.
