Chris Matthews appeared on The Colbert Report Wednesday night to promote his new book, Tip and the Gipper, saying that its going to be hard for President Obama to beat Ronald Reagans legacy.
Do you think Reagan was a better president than Obama is? Stephen Colbert asked the MSNBC host.
In the end, yes, Mr. Matthews responded. In the end. Because he ended the Cold War.
Thats hard to beat, he said, adding that he believes the government shutdown is going to go on weeks.
The pundit also took a jab at Fox News Bill OReilly. Mr. Colbert asked Mr. Matthews why he didnt name his book Killing Tip and the Gipper, referencing OReillys books Killing Lincoln, Killing Kennedy and Killing Jesus.

pssst Chrissy. Jimmy Carter was a better President than Obama.
Actually, Harding was an excellent President. He’s been viciously maligned by leftist historians. He resolved the Wilson Depression very quickly by cutting spending and taxes and it was Calvin Coolidge who continued the model. I’d swap Zero for Harding in a heartbeat.
Well, that must have cost him a place or two in the society of liberal Democrats! Being truthful is NOT the way to get in with that crowd.
Does this mean the tingle has gone from his legs whenever he hears the name Obama? How sad. They made such a cute couple.
Actually, I'd swap Zero for any of the past Presidents, including that old communist FDR. At least they were all Americans.
Pray America is Waking Up
President Ronald Reagan and Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.
Modern era conservative heroes. We'll not soon see their like again.
Compared to today’s Democrats, FDR wasn’t that bad. Reagan admired him. FDR believed in opportunity rather than welfare, and I believe was against public unions.
Compare Harry Truman with the Obamanation. Had the guts to A-bomb the Japanese and save lives on both sides, and when the deed was done there wasn’t anybody who doubted the nips had been nuked.
I am just surprised that Matthews of all people would ever admit to this. The Obama team is coming apart.
Obumbo and his followers can not be compared to the past presidents. Today, they are Marxist/Leninist thugs.
America has never been in such trouble as today.
EVERY President was better than Obama.
Never believe what a fool says, good, bad or indifferent. “Talk sense to a fool and he calls you foolish.” Euripides (484 BC - 406 BC)
Don’t forget the US Grant Administration...
Wow, that IS impressive.
Especially when you consider neither President (or any President for that matter) has the Constitutional Power to do so.
For those that might not know, Chris Matthews was Tip O’Neill’s chief of staff. Chrissy has very good reason to give a high dose of respect to Reagan. Also, that’s Chrissy’s perspective in writing a book about the two.
The thrill is gone.
