Matthews: "So Proud" Of Obama Addressing Troops In Afghanistan
Real Clear Politics ^ | May 1, 2012

Posted on 05/01/2012 5:12:09 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

Chris Matthews, host of MSNBC's "Hardball," raved about a speech President Obama made to American troops during his surprise visit to Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan.

"I imagine being a soldier over there [and] this is what you want to hear," Matthews said, as if he was wearing military fatigues.

Matthews also likened the leadership of President Obama to that of Henry V of England.

"It was right out of Henry V actually, a touch of Barry, in this case, in the night for those soldiers risking their lives over there," Matthews said.

"Well that's great stuff. I was so proud of the President there, I must say. This has nothing to do with partisanship; this is the Commander-in-Chief meeting with the troops," Chris Matthews gushed on his program today.

Matthews continued to express his admiration for Obama, who was in Afghanistan to mark the first anniversary of Osama bin Laden's death.

Matthews is a fawning, metrosexual sycophant.

Pathetic.

>>Matthews is a fawning, metrosexual sycophant.<<

He should be honest and just call his show “obama hard-@n.”

Hew should ask the troops how they feel about obozo. The disgust is palpable.

Did they disarm the troops in a war zone so the kenyan could strut around?

I certainly don’t know this as a fact, but it’s being reported on the radio that there weren’t any soldiers present during the speech.

I seem to recall Henry's rules of engagement at Agincourt were markedly different than Obama's ROE for Afghanistan.

BS. Chrissy thinks a lot more of CinC than this mil family. The only thing he could say that I want to hear is “I’m leaving and taking my moochers with me.” Stay home and do the job you’re getting paid to do, Barky.

“A touch of Barry”? - that’s like a touch of dysentery.

Tingle Leg Chrissie is looking forward to an Obama totalitarian tyranny where every TV only shows Hardball.

Cuz as of now nobody knows the jerk exists until he says something stupid enough to warrant comment by a conservative pundit.

I don’t recall Tingles gushing like this about President Bush visiting the troops. I guess that he got the White House memo to talk up Obama as CIC.
