Chris Matthews Is Not a Fan of This Bowe Bergdahl Deal

MSNBC’s Chris Matthews doesn’t seem to have gotten the channel’s memo on the Bowe Bergdahl deal.

Many liberal pundits on his network have shown nearly lockstep support for the Obama administration’s handling of the trade of five Taliban commanders for Bergdahl, who’s been accused of desertion by many of his fellow soldiers. However, Matthews, usually a huge fan of the president, has sharply criticized the cost of the trade, the national security consequences of releasing dangerous “Johnnies” as he put it, the actions of Bergdahl himself and the legality of Obama’s action.

In his closing statement Wednesday night, Matthews called it a “nasty deal” that was “driven by our enemies,” and he’s clashed with numerous guests this week about their support for it.

Like LBJ ... Obama must be thinking that if he has lost Matthews, then he has lost the country.

Fun to watch, but it is not a tipping point. These vile Leftists are committed to their anti-American cause.

The White Hut will never lose Chrissy. His only tingle deviation was the BP oil spill. Since then he’s been full knee pad.

Obamalamadingdong has lost nothing since Chrisy Matthews is a nobody. Matthews will regain his Progressive Socialist Democrat tendencies and be back on the Republicans are Satan bandwagon soon enough.

Everything, and I mean EVERYthing these liberals do for the next two years has one goal:

To get Mrs. Bill “I sold Missile-guidance technology to the ChiComs” Clinton into the White House.

The left will turn on Obammie the Commie now for one reason: to destroy Joe Biden. They will claim it is a team effort and while Obammie the Commie was one of the best presidents in our history, the TEAM took it a bit too far and we need someone like Hitlery, who has the same ideology...but who is more MODERATE, to take it from here.

The guy on the right has some kind of long stain down the inside of his pant leg and that guy on the far left is really creepy – especially when his Adam's Apple jumps around when he gets excited!

RE:”(Tipping Point) Chris Matthews Is Not a Fan of This Bowe Bergdahl Deal”

I been watching itbut its nothing compared to The Morning Joe.

Mika turned against it many days ago and she and Joe are ripping the few souls on the show that might defend it.

Ezra Klien tried to defend it today and Joe yells at him “Hell yes I would leave him there” and “Hell yes he was a bad father telling to it was OK to desert", with Mika supporting him.

I DVRed the show and I couldn't pull away from much of it when playing it back, it was too rich.

They are really ripping Obama on this, and its day after day.

Oh boy. If Matthews ain’t happy with something Obama did, maybe WE need to reassess. We may have missed something. I am going to get out my magnifying glass and go over every story of the trade I can find. There has got to be something, anything.

This is little different from when Mister Graham or Mister McCain pretend to be conservatives for a day.

It's merely an act, begging for some cred.

No dice.

I'm not that easily fooled.

Correct. Obama has gone rogue and he doesn’t care who he hurts to get his agenda enacted. Democrats haven’t caught on yet, but Obama said he had a ‘pen’ and EO’s so he does not need them nor does he care if they are reelected.

Chris Matthews, the mainstream media, know that Obama has now made journalists PRIME target for hostage taking.

They’ve dutifully kissed Obama arse for five years and their payback is to watch their colleagues languish and/or die.

They aren’t down for that struggle, they don’t do adversity...that’s for lowly production assistants and such.

Exactly. It’s going to be fun to watch when they do catch on. They will be between a Barack and a hard place.

Nope. This is just a chance for the MSNBC official Obama Propaganda to “take a tough stand” against Obama on a low stakes issue that Obama has already lost on anyway to rebuild their street cred so when the time comes for them to run interference for Obama during the IRS, VA and Benghazi scandals, they will say, “and you all know how hard I was on Obama for the Bergdahl /Taliban 5 because that was a real issue, but this current ________(fill in the Blank) scandal is just Republicans playing politics)”

“...Chris Matthews Is Not a Fan of This Bowe Bergdahl Deal...”

The only reason they’re “not a fan” of this deal is because they know Dear Leader stepped on his own crank - AGAIN - and they’ve been carrying his water for so long, at the expense of their OWN credibility.

They can only defend the indefensible for just so long before it starts wearing on them.

That's true for the normal person.

Unfortunately, these people aren't normal in any sense of the word, they're the card carrying members of the totalitarian left.

They'll cluck a bit today, but be back to circling the wagons and furthering the agenda of the totalitarian left tomorrow. It's who they are.......

Lake, you are spot-on...

Maybe. But this seems to be the first time even an ass-kisser like Chris Matthews has “had it” with FuBO.

Sometimes, the dam breaks... even a crack is still a break.

He’s “outraged”, evidently.

Dear Leader stuck it to him again, and he’s having a hard time dealing with it.

Like LakeShark said, though: He’ll get over it, and help circle the wagons in a few days or so.

Psychopaths are like that, after all.

I was thinking more on the line of “willing collaborator”... you know, words mean things.

Might come in handy at the next version of the Nuremberg trials.

I see. Sure!

Although, I’d skip the trial and sentencing portions and move directly to punishment.

Then bill their estates for the costs.

Just thought of something...

What if instead of Hillary (who might not run anyhow because she's too old and has lots of stinky baggage) they want Biden? Impeach Obama - have Obama step down - and voila Biden becomes an acceptable, mildly likable incumbent. And we're stuck with an idiot for another four years...

Ford never could have won a presidential election on his own... lacked the 'driven' personality for it.

Anything is possible with these fascists.

But they will never, ever impeach Obama. They had to use Biden, but he has been a huge streak mark on their undies.

They need to destroy him, but they need to do so in such a way that someone in the administration, who can claim to have supported ‘most’ of the agenda but has a ‘new’ and ‘fresh’ perspective can step in and take over where Biden could not. Biden will either retire to ‘spend time with family’ or he will be Fostered.

Hillary will run no matter what. You can count on that. She is ten times the egomaniac and political climber that Obammie the Commie is.

She considers making history as the first woman president to be her birthright.

Here entire life has led to this moment.
