Chris Matthews to Republicans:"Take Obamacare on the chin and shut up"
youtube/MSNBC ^ | 3/25/2010 | sickoflibs/youtube

Posted on 03/26/2010 12:52:07 PM PDT by sickoflibs

This part got me:

MATTHEWS: Well, I have to tell you, I don`t know how you fan the flames when you — when you say you don`t like something. And by the way, Congressman Stupak, I`ve got to ask you a question. I know this is rhetorical. But you know, when Bush got his way on a number of issues — forget the war. The parties agreed on that for a while there. He got a huge tax cut for the wealthy. I didn`t see the Democrats burning down the barns and sending hate mail, and you know, throwing rocks through windows. They lost a big fight on fiscal issues. They got the wrong end of the stick, you might argue. They still get it in the sense of tax policy. But they didn`t go doing this stuff. They took it on the chin.

clip

MATTHEWS: Yes, maybe — maybe the right wing should take this one on the chin, the way the liberals did when Bush did his tax cut back in the early part of this century. They just took it on the chin, no rallies, no violence, no stone-throwing, no bullets, no nothing.

I saw this last night eating dinner. There was no major democrats protest over Bush tax cuts they GOT them too and they were passed with bipartision votes. They could have protested by legally giving them back.

You Dems are MANDATING we buy a service on a partision vote. That is different than tax cuts. Notice he says Dems protesting against Bush on the war doesnt count as dems protesting Bush. What a phony!

This is why I still watch this nonsense, for gems like this.

Libs take it on the chin?

Let’s review the liberal reaction to the passage of the California amendment to not recognize gay marriage.

We’ve stepped back, time and again
as the left aggressively
stepped over line after line after line.
We’ve done so in order to be “civil and restrained”.

Folks there is nowhere to step back to.
We’re on the edge of a cliff.

Chris Matthews has a little Obama DNA on his chin, he needs to suck it up.

Sorry Chris, we have this little thing called THE CONSTITUTION which says we don’t have to shut up—unless you’d like to try to make us b-tch. I guess you needed to take the Bush tax cuts and Iraq War on the chin and just shut up, right? You’re not telling Republicans to shut up Chris-—you’re telling the majority of the voters who oppose this atrocity to shut up. Is that going to be the Democratic message for the fall campaign? Let’s see how that works out for you all-—friggin’ mental patient.

Don’t sweat it too much. Six months from now we’ll be telling the leg-wetter to take the GOP landslide on the chin and shut up. And after that to take the voter ID election reform on the chin and shut up. And the redistricting, and the Obamacare defunding, and the repeal.

Matthews is an old Democratic hack. He should be expected to say this kind of junk. It’s what passes for tough in dissembling Democratic circles.

LOL, I am thinking how shortsighting this is by Matthews because just a few years ago he was inciting protests against Bush, and in November he will be sorry again as you say when Dems lose.

This is all political. The HW is using this for fundraising letters. Megan Kelly did a story on this today on America Live.

So Chrissy equates tax breaks with government take-over of health care. Alright, Chrissy. Makes sense to me.

They are dragging us, our children, and our grandchildren
off in chains of slavery to the state,
and expect us to be “civil”???

Not the same thing Chris as a tax cut. This is an issue we believe will damage the Republic. Its Like Slavery was is the early 19th Century—Remember slavery? The issue you Democrats supported all the way till it turned to Civil War?
We are that passionate, even if you don’t think its important. If it does work, in time, the anger will fade. BUT, if it doesn’t work (and it has failed before in other lands) we will blame you and our anger will wax great. We will do all in our power to stop this destruction. You think the Tea Parties were bad before? Just wait—they people have yet to protest. Think back to the way you Hippies felt about the war in Viet Nam? We are that mad. Think of us as clean Hippies and motivated by convictions. These were the forces that propelled Washington to fight and win the Revolution.

Yeah, Chrissy. We should take it on the chin so you can continue to get a tingle up your leg.

We need to stop wasting time on Chris Matthews. Cancel cable & sat Tv if you want to make a difference on that.

We need to focus on getting the GOP to sign a DEFUND pledge to insure the Huouse GOP on Jan 2011 DEFUND this as Boehner said he would do.

I am sick of hearing about ‘Bush’s tax cuts for the rich’. Didn’t all taxpayers get a cut? After all, the poor don’t pay taxes anyway.

62% of Americans want this to be fought,Chrissy.So that means you want *them* to "take it on the chin" as well.Sounds like the tyranny of the minority to me,Chrissy.

And I wonder if there's anything that *you'd* be willing to take on the chin from Hussein? Something that might give ya another thrill up your leg?

Cutting taxes does not violate the basic tenets of our Republic as codified in the United States Constitution.
