Chris Matthews: "Looking Down Our Noses At The Tea Party Has Got To Stop"
copy MSNBC video on realclearpolitics.com ^ | June 11th, 2014 | copied by realclearpolitics.com

CHRIS MATTHEWS: I was listening to [David] Brat last night, and today. I hink he's very sophisticated for a politician. He's certainly up to the ranks of most politicians I've ever dealt with. He speaks in a speculative manner and an intellectual manner. He can handle any debate on this program or my program. This looking down our noses at tea party people has got to stop. They have a message, they're as American as any liberal is, and they're really angry about the failure of the system. I was over covering eastern Europe when the wall came down. The thing people didn't like, it wasn't the philosophy of communism they didn't like, it was the complete corruption of it, the failure of it to deliver to working people. And that's what this system's doing right now. We can't control the deficit, we can't control the debt, we can't control the border. What is government good at? And that's the question that's happened on every issue we've covered on our show.

It's almost like Matthews is starting to get it... very strange times.

I think what really has these people shaken is that the sitting House majority leader and future Speaker of the House was toppled by some dude who financed his campaign with less money than he would have spent on a decent mid-sized SUV.

The whole idea of a "professional political class" should be unraveling here in the U.S., and I think leftists have the most to fear from that.

Mr. Gruber would like to be your next GOP Chairman in the 7th Congressional District. The Louisa accountant and Tea Party favorite has, for the most part, an impeccable resume, which includes being Executive Director of Blue Ridge Property Owner’s Association, and would be a certain challenge to Linwood Cobb, the incumbent.

Then team Cantor called them rednecks and anti-semites after they lost.

I’ve never been a fan of Matthews but there have been more than a few times where he’s put his overt political bias (which he’s paid to shill as a propagandist) aside and call things as he sees them.

If only he would realize Communism becomes corrupted every time, no matter how nice your idealistic intentions are.
And once they had their revolution, they sure as hell don't want another.

We are far more American than ANY liberal. Is it possible that there is a faint patriotic pulse in Chrissy? Naw he is a dim. In the deepest nooks and crannies of their rotten hearts they hate America and they hate us.

Exactly. And that’s a good thing. BOTH sides’ career politicians should be worried.

Even if Brat turns out not to be so hot, it’s still a win for the American people.

I look forward to the day when some retired truck driver with a high school education becomes the Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives. I’ll bet this country would run like a well-oiled machine in that scenario.

Every six months or so Matthews make a statement that is incongruent with Obama worship.

It will not stand and he will not stand with it.

This is what he does.

Matthews has small islands of sanity, probably when he is sober. Remember Rush once had him as a sub host for his program. Once during the '96 campaign Matthews observed that "Bob Dole is ten times the man Bill Clinton will ever be." Then he sank back into the fog.

Go figure.
