Posted on 10/06/2013 10:22:34 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
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.
Do you have anything against Millard Fillmore, or Martin Van Buren?
Hell... President Dwayne Elizondro Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho hasn't even been born yet and he was a better president than the amateur community organizer we got right now.
A crustacean would be a better president as would a three toed sloth, a tsetse fly, or a any of a dozen inanimate objects..
Great pic. A reminder of what leadership looks like. Thanks for posting..
You left out Woodrow Wilson and the Doofus on the Dime.
What, are there pigs flying in the air these days?
Obama is a president? Of the Choom Gang?
This actually means a hell of a lot coming from someone like Matthews. This means it has become too blatantly obvious to deny the disaster that is the One. At this point, I think even a completely impartial observer of the Presidents would be forced to consider Obama at the very least one of the 5 worst presidents in US history. At least.
Where is Andrew Johnson when you need him?!
the worst presidents in our History were not Commie Islamo-Fascists!
omfg. best movie. ever
So would have been my dog. But this is satire, yes?
As much as O’Reilly makes us cringe, the libs consider
him to be a conservative. Although we know better,
still, Chrissy’s crack regarding “Killing O’Reilly” would
never be tolerated if a percieved conservative pundit
made it about a liberal even on a lame program like
FDR may been born an American, but he was as Red as they come. Read Paul Kengor’s book about Frank Marshall Davis (The Communist). I’ll bet there’s some stuff in there most people have never heard before.
exactly. Hector Camacho was a porn start too. Buttcrack, on the other hand, is a fag.
O’Reilly should be starting the book “Killing Ambassador Stevens”!
What is Michelle Obama doing holding a gun???
Jimmy Carter was a better President than Obama...
Can you imagine how long it would have taken Valerie Jarrett to decide to drop The Bomb on Hiroshima?
Even Jeff Davis was a better president.
And Jimmy Carter too.
Chrissy who? Oh, Crissy ‘tingly leg’ Mathews! Is he still ‘reporting’ news? I thought he retired long ago when he realized that no one ever listened to him! If there ever was a reporter that carried water for Barry, it was/is Chrissy.
A chimp with a hand grenade would be better.
Don’t get to enthusiastic about statements made when selling a book. They will say anything to entice you to buy it.
Except Crissy will turn right around in 2016 and declare Hillary the only person capable of getting the nation out of the mess it is in.
Actually, measuring Obama against prior Presidents is the wrong criteria. It’s not that Obama is a bad President; it is that he is an enemy agent. In that he has been spectacularly successful.
If we could get enough people calling Obama “President Camacho....”
Or any other president, with the possible exception of FDR, who did more damage because he was in office longer. Obama has about 3 more years to go yet, we'll see if he can match Roosevelt.
Sadly, my 93 year old mother is still a "Roosevelt democrat". There's no reasoning with her, I just go ahead and love her anyway.
I could care less what opinions Matthews has. He’s a loud-mouth blow-hard and a hater. One small comment about Reagan won’t change anything.
