Newt Gingrich absolutely wrecks Chris Matthews

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Most weeks aren’t good weeks for Chris Matthews, but this one has been exceptionally rough for the MSNBC host. After getting thoroughly dismantled yesterday morning by Tom Brokaw, Mika and an the RNC Chair, Matthews thought it would be a good idea to bring try the exact same talking points against Newt Gingrich.

It didn’t go very well.

Watch the clip:

It doesn’t help that Matthews started the interview off by being combative, “You’ve engaged in what I consider very problematic rhetoric…”

Telling the former speaker he finds him to be a problem – great way to start an interview against a man known for dismantling the mainstream media.

After continuing to criticize Newt Gingrich, Matthews tried to tie Newt’s “food stamp president” comments (comments he formerly accused Newt of being a racist for making) to Donald Trump’s birther claims.

How did Newt respond to Matthews’s nonsense?

“A ‘food stamp president’ is the guy whose policies are so destructive, that he creates the longest unemployment since the Great Depression and he puts more people on food stamps — most of them white — than anybody else.”

“Why do you assume food stamp refers to blacks?” he added.

“What kind of racist thinking do you have? You‘re being a racist because you assume they’re black!”

“During the primaries we were, at times, tough on Newt Gingrich’s policies, but there is nothing more gratifying than when Newt Gingrich gets on a roll and starts destroying someone on the left,” Stu said. “It’s why, I think, Republicans and conservatives like him so much, because he is unafraid and he just destroys Chris Matthews here.”

Stu continued to point out how obsessed by the issue of race Chris Matthews is. Every debate, every talking point that goes against the right, they always come back to race.

Pat gives this example:

I forgot he was black for an hour? So…usually Chris Matthews is really cognizant of this…” Pat joked. “But, for about an hour, he forgot that.”

“Wow. Imagine the great internal triumph he must have had when he realized he hadn’t actually looked at the President for the color of his skin for sixty full minutes!” Stu responded sarcastically. “What an accomplishment for Chris Matthews.”

“I mean this is an idiotic set of viewpoints,” Stu continued. “He admits on national television that 24 hours a day, 7 days a week he thinks of the President as black and notices he’s black. But for full sixty minute period he was able to overlook that and act as if it was an achievement.”

So what’s the deal with Chris Matthews? Who knows, but one thing is for sure, if you disagree with the ideology of President Obama, he’s probably going to call you a racist.

    Chris Matthews has gone over the deep end into complete madness. He is as insane as Mr Obama.

    He attacked Gingrich like a bear would a hive of bees to get at the honey. Only difference in this case is the ‘bear’ of Matthews fell into the trap of Gingrich and got the tables turned on him completely across the board.

    Chris Matthews had a bad week?

    Wait to see his reaction on Nov 7, after his god-king of the Democratic Pantheon falls from the throne of the White House and is revealed to be all too mortal and is FIRED!!!

    Be sure to record it for posterity; the whining should be worth it.

      When Obama’s reign is overturned, I picture Spit Matthews  spinning in a furry with sparks and spit flying, blustering incoherently in a rage,  followed by medics tying the sleeves of his new white jacket behind him, and taking him off to St. Elizabeths Hospital for some ‘special’ down time. I can’t wait….

    • Kim Andrews Harrington

      My concern is he will be in the front of the line when they say the election was rigged  when Mitt Romney wins. Somehow some conspiracy will be made up and the votes were rigged. He may even be the one to start the conspiracy rumor. Also, I am afraid of the protesting and riots that could happen as well, those will start by people like him and his rantings.

      • Carol Morgan

         that is why, like Glenn says, let’s not lose because we sat down”! we see how desperate the Obama crowd ,but let’s keep up the good fight and the vigilance that will ensure Obama’s defeat and Romney and America’s victory!

    Why does Glenn and friends keep putting clips from this creep’s show on?  Can’t stand seeing his ugly face.  If Glenn didn’t bring attention to him no one would know who he is.  Why give him free publicity?  I think he gets about five viewers a night.

    For two days in a row the arrogant prig, Chis Matthews has made a total ass of himself. Is it any wonder that MSNBC’s ratings are in the toilet? Someone needs to tell him to STFU.

    Someone who does interviews for a living knows that the object it to ask a question that will require a response from the guest. He doesn’t shut up long enough for anyone to respond and when they try to answer the question, he berates his guests before they can get a word out, putting words in their mouths and jumping to conclusions.

    Why do people even book to appear on his show?

         Not everyone can be on comedy central. You know, that station where the ‘young’ collage crowd haven’t a clue the BS they’re being spoon fed. Even when the 3/4 liberal Jon Stewart tells them it’s made up, fictional, all for the ratings. These airhead kids sit at home then swear it’s what really happened. Of all the liberals out there, I have to admit that Jon is the brightest. Most others are just plain ol’ dumb sh*t’s or conniving backstabbers.

        You forget that liberals runs on emotions so when they listen to Matthews he pulls many of their emotional strings and they agree with them and throw logic out the window.

        Conservatives are being foolish to think logic will win the other side over, and we’ve let the emotional battle be completely won by the other side. Frankly, it can’t be won.

        The left wants communism and socialism and frankly there won’t be an end to it until our nation dissolves and we let California and New York have their communist ideal.

        I don’t understand why the nation keeps together anymore other than the relative luxury, and that Americans still feel like we’re the best but soon China will have a larger GDP and stop exporting to us and start consuming so America is going to get a major shock.

        As soon as the money stops flowing, there is NOTHING, no ethnicity, religion, race, or even language that unifies America anymore. It will be a hundred times worse than the Balkans.

            I agree and I think Glenn pointed out the “normalcy bias” yet so many Americans won’t realize that the America they grew up in is gone and that sticking in the Union is costing Texas and the South TRILLIONS in taxes and regulations, and exposing our children to the same television grid as Hollywood does incalculable damage to our culture and morality.

            We need a Southern counter-culture, and as long as we are hooked up to the same television grid (by being in the same country) our midwest/southern christian media will not be able to compete with the smut coming out of California.

             Gone global? Where? China? No. Africa? No. Middle East? No. It hasn’t even gone “Spanish”, believe me the waves of illegal immigrants are going to wipe out any hopes of a majority in Texas soon if we don’t secede.

            Some estimates are in a decade there will be more native spanish speakers than native english speakers in Texas.

          • Joe Snuffy

            Hopefully, when Obama is kicked to the curb, our Homeland Security Department will once again be allowed to enforce the immigration laws that are already on the books.
            Our Immigration officers are extremely upset because of the Policies John Morton has put in place at Obama’s insistance.  This policy PROHIBITS our agents from doing their jobs and enforcing our immigration laws. 
            We absolutely MUST vote Obama and his Socialist Party OUT of our government to stop this uncontrolled INVASION of our country from our southern border. 

            The people who come across the border are NOT only Spanish speaking people.  Many speak Arabic.  They are not here to find jobs. They are here to lay down the basis for an invasion from wthin our own borders.  Obama and his Socialists KNOW this. It is part of their overall plan to destroy the United States.  

            We the People MUST CLEAN HOUSE in the November elections.  We must defend our nation and our Constitution that keeps us free from Tyrants like Obama and the Socialist Party.   

          • Paolina Garcia

            @twitter-315794586:disqus : All the more reason we need to seperate. I say give Romney 6-12 months and if he doesn’t keep his promises and turns out to be a liberal, then we need to secede because we can’t afford Hillary Clinton in 2016 (it’s coming and it’s scary to think of). You think Obama’s bad just wait till Hillary gets into office!

          I don’t know if it would be a bad thing to let a certain number of states secede from the Union and the other states embrace their new liberal constitution as it were, and the seceders, call them conservatives, can mandate new citizen standards with secure borders. I’m pretty sure that the “new” United States would create a financially viable model for a country to thrive under and that the “other” United States, will have problems that exceed their gross national product. My guess is a lot of liberals would then want to live in the conservative states, which is where the rub will be. We need people that ask what they can do for their country and not the other way around, and that’s what really defines conservative America. I certainly don’t need the frills of American entertainment, including sports, if some sacrifice were needed to make this work. I just want to live in an America that isn’t afraid to be productive and work hard for our future and our children’s future, and not leave it in the hands of government.

        You Matthews apologists are quite pathetic and stupid (yes, STUPID), trying to prop up the likes of a man who sees racism, somehow and someway, in what the intellectually superior electorate have to say.  I can’t believe this guy actually gets paid to sit there and make an “arse” out of himself.  Better yet, I can’t believe there are actually people who tune in to watch poor Mr. Matthews demonstrate his lack of intellect each day.  Must be quite entertaining to simple minds.  I feel embarrassed for the man when I watch these brief clips.

    • Rey

       Its not that they don’t have the intellect, it is that they don’t have the facts on their side. Therefore they MUST use emotion and they MUST discredit opposing views by labeling their opponent. Labeling an opponent as a racist is a very effective way to discredit someone who may have facts and logic on his side of the argument. It is also an effective way to silence people. Notice how Matthews asks questions then overtalks the answer given then tries to make a new point, then repeats. He then tries to label others as racist so as to do as stated above. It appears to me that he is the prejudiced bigot. A racist is someone who believes their race is genetically superior to all others. Matthews is just prejudiced. Remember his comment about “forgetting Obama was black?”

    Chris Matthews is nothing but a racist . . . an arrogant racist . . . and it is because of Matthews’ racism that MSNBC is declining in the television ratings.  I also think Matthews is a fag.  I mean, Matthews once said, on the air, that when he heard Barack Obama speak, it “made his thighs tingle”.  To me that sounds like faggotry.

    Chris Matthews isn’t worth listening to.  Nothing to say of any value.

    Matthews would be just another Democrat if he didn’t practice his “never shut up while the guest is answering your question” interview style… He’s not smart enough to ask clever questions that would cause the guest to respond in the way he wants, so he asks a lame question and then just keeps talking over the guest’s response, often saying what he “wished” the guest would say…  I am amazed every time I realize he actually gets a pay check for this…

    Chris Matthews is insignificant as MSNBC and NBC News has become so partisan it is insignificant to the American public.    Other than Newt, who can hold his own (and clean them up with their own vomit) most intelligent people should avoid NBC like the plague.   Jay Leno is attributed to saying once that NBC stood for ‘Never Believe your Contract;’ I contend (once with a network affiliate in the 1980s) that today it stands for “Nothing But Crap.”   If not for Glenn Beck’s posts and links I do not watch it of any of its spin offs at ALL.   The lost their relevancy when Tim Russert passed away and with him the civility of decent political coverage.

    I see no point in having a discussion with Chris Matthews..its not a discussion. Its what the chairman of the RNC called it….Chris’s monologue. He states false assumptions, accusations, rambles incessantly and then changes the subject when the “guest” pins him in a corner and he can’t get his narrow-minded/bigoted opinion out. I don’t know how anyone would or could call this fair and balanced journalism. He is nothing more than a two-bit “hack”….and a surrogate for Obama. The GOP should just stop granting interviews to him. He is completely irrelevant.

    Chris Mathews  can be likened to a rabid dog who is caught chasing his tail (or tale) around and around and getting nowhere.  If he didn’t have the wife he has (who is a biggie in D.C.,)  he would have been out many years ago..Of course Current TV is about as “out” as a  TV person can get, isn’t it?

  • Colleen Kayter

    Too funny watching Matthews change subjects as soon as he realizes he’s talking with someone who knows facts, not memorized talking points. Truly not fair of Gingrich to have a battle of wits with an unarmed man.

    Chris Matthews needs to taken off the air, but I think he will do that on his own..give it just a bit more time.

    And one more thing . . . .

    Chris Matthews reminds me of his fellow MSNBC host, a black male name “Toure”, who last week publicly accused Mitt Romney and the Republican party of causing the “niggerization” of Barack Hussein Obama.

    I suspect tomorrow Matthews will latch on to Toure’s verbal creation and accuse MRS. Romney of contributing to the “niggerization” of Obama.

    It’s clear that both Toure and Chris Matthews are first-class racists.

    Do you think Chris is back on the bottle?

    Matthews is so bad as a commentator, it is wonder why anyone would even talk to him – regardless of political party.  Thank gosh for the TV remote as we can vaporize him easily.  NBC should fire him, Mr. Ed and Rachael M on grounds that they spead hate..

      Commentator? All he does is scold in a mean, illogical way. Pretty soon no one will talk to him. If all his interviews turn into one way angry scoldings he’ll be out of a job. His victims should just laugh at him saying “Yes sireeeee.” until he explodes !!!

    Newt was my guy until the GOP and the main scream media ripped the rug out from under his campaign.

      Redoubt South,

      I am begging you to use common sense to vote in this election.  This is NOT about Republican or Dumbocrap or Libertarian!  This election is a matter of whether we remain the United States of America or become the United Socialist States of America & part of the New World Order being governed by the Communists in the United Nations.  What could you possibly be thinking? 

      Romney was not my choice either!  Newt or Herman Cain were my choices, but we at least KNOW where Romney was born & that HE is an American citizen, loves this country & possibly the most morally decent candidate we’ve ever had!  O’Dumbo is NOT an American, not by birth nor his ideology!  He HATES this country & wants to change it to his INSANE notion of being a “Utopia” where everybody except he & his radical “elites” are all equally as poor as the other government controlled Third World Countries!  Do you REALLY want that for your country?

      If you DON’T vote or vote for someone other than Romney, the final destruction of this country will be on your shoulders!  Our ONLY objective should be to replace this radical imposter & rid the Senate of Dirty Harry & his Communist minions!  THEN, we can deal with the other problems as they arise! 

      I would vote for President Cat & Vice President Dog before I would let our current “Dictator-In-Chief” finish off the greatest country on the planet!  That is because I put this country first instead of being a whiney-butt because MY candidate didn’t win the nomination!  If you are that selfish & self-centered, YOU will deserve what the outcome of another 4 years of this imposter will bring, but I don’t!

        You are full of shit. The reason we are in this mess is because of people like you. You keep voting for whomever the Republicans put up, like a good drone. You keep voting for the lesser of two evils, like a good drone. You keep doing what you are told, like a good drone. You think Obamao would have been there had the Republicans put up a real candidate, instead of McCain the “progressive” Republican? You think Palin was a good VP choice? Wake up and smell what you are shoveling. The problem here is people like who think that everyone should vote the way you and the Republicans want. You will deserve what you get, either way. You are a complete fool.

            First, I don’t do drugs or drink. Second, voting for the lesser of two evils is exactly what got us into this mess in the first place. (The definition of insanity: Doing the same thing over and over expecting a different result -Albert Einstein.) By thew way, this country has been voting either D or R for decades and look where we are, you claim to want a change but obviously don’t have the courage to do what it would take for that change. Nothing you said was a fact, a vote for a person is NOT a vote for anyone but that person. You and many others may try to paint the picture of people voting for anyone but Romney is a vote for Obamao, but that is lie. Third, you better wake up to the  fact that Libertarians are REQUIRED for any Republican to win an election. As you sit there and disparage people any Republican NEEDS to win, that fact is clear. I know people like you hate us Libertarians, you are no better than Democraps. You hate they we are for freedom for all, because you want to control people’s lives, just like any Democrap. The only difference is about the things you want to control, as opposed to them. If wanting a return to our founding documents makes be a brain-washed fool, then what are you? You only want to change those documents to suit yourself. As I stated before, you are a fucking fool of the highest order.
            There’s the answer to your “questions.” I am sure you will not understand any of it. Carry on, drone.

    As usual Newt proves he is the brilliant master of words and thoughts.  Obama’s depression has produced more Food stamp recipients and non-working people in the history of this country!   Matthews and the Left are really touchy about the Birth Issue aren’t they?

    • Anonymous

      Its not that they are touchy about it. They want to appear touchy about it. It is easier to paint someone as a loon for bringing it up then it is to defend his failed policies. At this point in time its a moot issue anyway. No court will every say he was not born here and no matter what evidence is put in front of the Senate they would never have the 2/3 vote needed to get rid of him. Obama and friends want the issue alive because it distracts away from his being the worst president in history.

    Chris Matthews – you are a retard!  Obama has NEVER gone to Hawaii, NEVER shown his actual birth certificate, you MORON.  You should literally be fired for saying that, for lying on air.  He posted a forgery, a fraudulent document as a PDF – a f***ing PDF you retard!  Can a kid show a PDF on his phone as proof that he’s old enough to buy beer?  Hell, no!  Can a child use a PDF to be enrolled in Little League – no, he needs to show an actual birth certificate.  I can show you a PDF of me and a super model naked on the hood of a lambourghini on Bora Bora – would you actually believe it?  That PDF was declared with 100% certainty a fraud in court affidavits of over 50 document analsysts (and others were invited to come forward if they would like to say otherwise) that they were 100% certain it was a fraud.  

    Chris Matthews should know that.  He should know about the Sheriff Arpaio investigation.  He is in media/news… he should be fired for not keeping up with these topics.

    Chris Matthews is an [unfortunate] product of a culture that actively feeds off the IQ of those that frequent his channel. Those three people–his wife, his mother and he watches his own reruns–probably do have a higher IQ than most, definitely much higher than the other millions, maybe even billions, who haven’t figured out how to work the Nielsen box or punch a chad out of a ballot and don’t get lumped into the vast popularity stats of MSNBC and the voter tally of the latest Progressive stalwart of American politics, namely, an Algorish, boorish buffoon. That’s the Liberal dichotomy: Intelligent demagogues trying to convince people who’ll believe anything that Conservatism is evil, racist and murderers when the Democratic Party was always the Party of the KKK, African American Enslavers and supportive of racial genetics by the hands of Margaret Sanger’s Planned Parenthood when, in fact, their allegations are reflections rather than pronouncements of their opponents. He’s HALF WHITE, HALF BLACK, you dufus! But all your racist idiocy sees is what your braindead audience wants to believe.

       Well spoken!  When I was a kid living in the country, some of our neighbors had dogs who would chase cars as they went by.  As the car drove on, the dog, thinking that he had chased away the car away, went back to his lawn to lie down and smugly consider his achievement.  Those kind of dogs didn’t last long because they would inevitably meet their early end when a car or truck ran him down.  Chris Mathews reminds me of those dogs.  He is important in his own mind only, just a blowhard who has lousy ratings.

    Sounds to me like Chris Matthews is the racist since whenever anyone mentions welfare, food stamps, or poor people his brain automatically correlates those words with black people.

    The younger of these two commentators has very little to say that is actually constructive. His excessive drama and comments that expound unnecessarily to what’s being discussed add nothing to the conversations. Quite frankly, I find him irritating and it makes me less inclined to watch these videos.

    OK. I see what is going on here. This vitriol from the left serves 2 purposes: 1.) they are attempting, through the surrogate mouthpieces (Matthews, Wasserman-Schultz), that are overly sensationalistic and just plain irritating; to provoke, incite, and distract from the real issues, and 2.) they are deliberately attempting to create a fire where there is none. 

    Looking at those 2 stooges, Mr. Thrill Up His Leg and Mrs. Repulsive, it is abundantly clear how desperate these lunging attacks are. They are typical Alinsky stabs in the dark, immoral, baseless and without merit. 

    I can tell you with certainty, that if this is the best they’ve got, we’ve got Obama on the first train out of DC come January 2013. 

    It’s entertaining to listen to these desperately asinine assaults. 

    I heard Democratic goofball Lanny(?) Davis on the radio the other day make a similarly ridiculous and inflammatory remark about the Republican platform of abortion and how Mitt Romney, as the Republican nominee has not denounced this position. Ridiculous. The question was about the economy, and the smokescreen of distraction was seen from the next continent over. 

    This election should (and will) be about the economy. Abortion is not going to put people back to work, and decrease the deficit.

    Yesterday I posted a comment stating I worked in the Mental Health field before my retirement.  Poor Chris Matthews is really having a very severe mental breakdown and should be given a mental health leave so he can receive treatment.  I doubt he would ever return after that.  Of course, no one really has compassion for this poor individual who is clearly suffering from severe delusions.  The media are just using him and his hysterical outbursts to hopefully gain a following of people who view him to cash in on his poor mental state.  Please, have some compassion of this poor soul, give him a leave to get treatment and STOP putting him is such humiliating situations!!!

    Listening to lard mouth matthews would be funny if his voice wasn’t so grating.  He is the typical bent communist with a ‘liberal’ lapel pin to make him seem legitimate. When it comes to any debate or mere conversation, ‘liberals/democrats(aka progressive communists) always run to the race card. I can understand that because the media eats it up and it strikes fear in the weak of heart republican. Issues, facts and stats all fly off the conversation to defending their(the sap republican) ‘open heart’ towards ‘minorities. Aside all the bull, while it may be true that there are large numbers of white folk on food stamps, the biggest numbers of people (per capita) not interested in looking for work are the ‘minority’. Stats also point out that generational ‘families’ who grow up into welfare and who deliberately have more children for bigger welfare checks are ‘non-white. It’s not a race issue to say when people are not required to work or to prove a  to get luxury items for free, quite often they will opt for the freebie. Charity used to be from the heart to the needy and it always worked. I know because I was once that family. Now it’s been made into a human right to take anything from anyone at anytime and that is what is wrong with every Nation which have ‘compassionate laws’ . Wrong because it makes that Nation weak and subjective to her enemies. It destroys economies, the heart of the people and the ability to  secure itself. Bad guys don’t obey laws nor do they care about others.

    Chris Matthews is one of the most obnoxious people that I know of in a place of national prominence. He just cannot believe that anyone would question his absurd ideas and beliefs. He is given a public forum the the national media to make his claims, a lot of them unsubstantiated by facts which outs him in good company with Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, and President Obama. He gave the me the impression in this interview that the facts don’t matter. He is simply a shill for the Democratic party bent upon espousing lies to sway those who listen to him. Unfortunately, he is becoming a national joke with no credibility at all. As a “newsman/journalist” he needs to follow the lead of Walter Kronkite.

    Newt Gingrich is not someone you want to challenge to a debate. Regardless of what you might think about him personally, he is one of the smartest men in national politics today.. You will not get the best of him in a one on one situation. But just like the liberals who support socialism, which hasn’t worked anywhere that it has been tried in world history, past or present, they still are just like the “Energizer Bunny” they just keep going and going and going.

    Matthews is just another flunky that when you don’t have anything of substance to say or stand on, you attack with the race card. America got by that with the election of Obama. That is in almost everybody’s mind but Chris Matthews. And in his case, ?a mind is a terrible thing to waste.”

    To begin with,  Matthews has a horrible, irritating voice.  He constantly (rudely) interrupts  people and harps on the same dumb subject all the time.  Man has the intellect of a kumquat. Can he speak intelligently about the economy or international affairs?  He should work on the View with the rest of the air head, cackling chickens.  Can’t stand him.  Time  to retire, Matthews.

    I think what Chris Matthews needs to remember is that it was the Democrat Party that was the party of the Confederate States of America and wanted slavery to continue.  It was 6 Democrats from the Confederate States of America that started the KKK.  It seems to me guys like Chris Matthews forgets his parties own history.  The Republican party was born to fight specifically what the Democrat party stood for.  The Democrats seceded from the Union and ripped our country apart, pitting brother against brother, father against son, American against American.  Yes over time they have and are allowed to “flip flop” and modifiy their political position but don’t try to put it off onto the Republican party.  The Republican Party since its inception has had the same policies.

    See “2016” and you will understand Matthews and why he loves Obama so much.  Obama makes him feel good about, benevolent even – supporting and voting for a black man.  We will not be free in America until we stop being so concerned about a person’s color and start listening to what they are saying, watching what they are doing in order to determine who they really are.  I would never vote for Obama because his policies are so bad, his ideology the antithesis of the America I grew up believing in and loving so much.  It doesn’t matter what color you are if you are an inexperienced, incapable leader, if all you are is talk – you are not the man for the job.  George Obama would make a better president!

    Where in the world does Chris Matthews get the temerity to suggest that he knows what “every African-American” watching his program thinks? Perhaps he’s talking about what those who refuse or are afraid to leave the Democrat Party plantation think.

    This year may be the end of Motor Mouth, he tried hard to steer the conversation with Newt, his rant with Priebus was a pathetic loud mouthed spewing of inaccuracy and a game of word domination to use up time…..MM is Shakesperes idiot….Priebus is correct MM just doesn’t have a audience of size or value.

    Matthews is a pimp for Alinsky radicalism and has admitted such.  This poor excuse for a journalist is nearly hysterical that Barry Soetero has failed, which means Matthews has failed.
    Obama has spent a fortune covering up his past and Matthews is going down with the ship because he never did his job to vet this fraud. Chrissy is an Obama punk.

    i can tell mathews is an Idiot simply because he makes the statement about being in line to get food stamps to go buy BOOZE WTF are you that stupid. food stamps is a government program and at least as far as I know at least in my state and the ones surrounding it Booze as he put it is NOT purchasable by food stamps. someone this much into politics and he doesn’t even have his facts straight about a program as simple as food stamps.

    I just watched Chris Matthews rail about racism at Reince Priebus before watching this video with him doing the same at Gingrich. My only thought other than thinking what an annoying idiot he is was about how WHINY he is! I mean the man sounds like a whiny little boy complaining that someone took his toy for goodness sake. REALLY! The guy just WON’T shut up. Some one PLEASE tell Matthews to put a sock in it (or maybe someone could just do that LITERALLY…. into his big annoying mouth)!

    Matthews must be counting on getting the attention and support of the 10% of people who are insane to be viewers.  It would never dawn on him to be honest and thereby earn the trust of viewers.  Liberals live for being able to deceive others.  It is why they were so in awe of Bill Clinton.  They marveled at how he was able to lie right off the cuff.

    At the end of this discussion, one of the analysts hit on an obvious assumption about Matthews, and that is that “something” once happened to Matthews to make him so obsessed with “race”. I suspect that Matthews was once very traumatized by blacks when he was very young, and I believe that that trauma was just about as bad as bad can be. Matthews is a pathetic victim, used by his media masters who have exploited a little boy in such enormous pain.

    Mathews could not be that stupid. Nothing could, and live. There is an effort to stifle any criticism of Obama’s policies. If you dare slam the policies you will be called a racist.

    Well, Mathews has several more to call racist because Obama’s policies got hit pretty hard last night at the convention and there is more to come. Go for it Mathews. Who cares? Your three viewers?

    “Stu continued to point out how obsessed by the issue of race Chris Matthews is. Every debate, every talking point that goes against the right, they always come back to race.”IMHO it may be a sign of senility. Time for (p)MSNBC to let go of Matthews. But on the other hand he just aids in their floundering in the ratings, and so it would be beneficial for all of us for that network to shut down.

    I stand here, the storm twists and rages and the din is deafening.  I shout, but the voice is drowned out even to my own ears. As the song goes, ‘cold on ice, match on a fire…whisper on a scream, doesn’t mean a thing….’  No matter how much we tear them down, no matter how we rage back against their haughty conflagration, they will ‘blow hard’ to fan the flames. Our only recourse, to build the firewall at every point and show them for the ‘blow hards’ that they are.  Matthews is a little flame, a minor wildfire that needs to be stamped out with the boot of conservative reality.  trying to burn a boot the size of Mr. Gingrich was a miscalculation of epic proportions.  I pray he continues his flaring and spitting in hopes we can finally extinguish his burn for good.

    AMAZING how a network pays an apologist to rant all day long and to defend a president who has done nothing but desintegrate the country. Why isn’t Matthews working in the White House? Oh, I forgot: he’ll have to shut up and get less money for parroting what he parrots for a huge salary plus perks!  Matthews’ style of journalism: do all the talking. Notice how he believes that if he overtalks his opponent with his absurb rethoric he “wins.”  The only time anyone watches this “hardball” is when someone makes him look like the NUT he really is.

    ONCE AGAIN, Chris demonstrates that HE is the racist. He is the one with the problem and HE is the one who will not face the real facts when they are staring him directly in the face. 

    Chris is following the Communist mantra; If anyone disagrees with you, call them a racist.  Fortunately, there are many of us out here who know his tactics.

    Newt was the right guy to face off with Chris because Newt doesn’t hesitate to call him on his BS statements.

    You notice how Matthews jumps from one topic to another after being systematically demolished by Gingrich.  He has trouble focusing.  Perhaps he’s ADD.  There is no more idiotic “commentator on television today than this airheaded motormouth who thinks that if he talks fast something more intelligent will come out.

    The reason that liberals are forever obsessed withrace is that the civil rights cnflicts of the 1960s were the last time the left really held the high-ground. It’s ironic, but Democrats are forever pining for the good old days when blacks were institutionally oppressed.

  • Java8

    This idiot, Chris Matthews, does not allow anyone who disagrees with him the ability to get out one full sentence.  His whole tactic is to get in his attack and then talk over the person trying to respond.  He is an extreme motor mouth who has no way to back up anything he says so he talks over anyone who opposes his views.  Conservative politicians need to stop appearing on this crazy man’s show.  He is certifiably nuts.  Conservative politicians need to stop giving him a stage.  The guy is given one “fact” after another to show that Obama’s record is comparable to what we flush down a commode, and he just talks over the responses of all conservative politicians’ responses to his raving lunatic accusations.  End this now…stop going on his show and maybe he will finally go the way of his other lunatic fringe, K Obermann.  Matthews must be on the Democratic Party and/or the Obama payroll or he is completely delusional. In any case, whatever meds this idiot, Matthews, is taking — they are not working!

    Is anything not racist to Mathews? Not all on food stamps and welfare are minority and he, quite frankly,  is insulting the minorities.  People should be angry with him making insinuations.  It is people like him that divide the country. Why is is liberals always scream over the other person as if they are afraid a point may be made if they allow the other to get a word in.  I really am not feeling democratic anymore cause this is not the true democratic party. It has become a bunch of crazy fruitcakes who stoop to low levels as human beings that I am not willing to say I am a part of.  GROW UP

  • Mark Giovanni Sandore

    Indeed, Chris Matthews is in way over his head with Newt, nor just about anybody that represents an opposing viewpoint because he is a shameless dependent, dependent on liberal winds of ideas that are never challenged in his circle, thus no new ground is ever broken, and his mind stays mired in the same web of careless and irresponsible ideas that he started with 30 years ago. It’s one reason that CNN loses viewers in droves each year since Fox Network News started, because say what you will about Fox’s conservative bend, they have as many as 10 liberal voices that participate on a daily basis on that network that keep the conservative thought on edge and up to date, and their facts are always challenged, on both sides of the debate.

    During the RNC I had CSPAN on one TV and was flipping the other between channels to see for myself if there really was a bias in media reporting. 

    msnbc aired their anchors, matthews and maddow, when Artur Davis was aproached the podium and spent the whole time he was speaking whining about the “the republicans can’t come up with a single person of color” to speak at their convention “because they hate blacks.” And so it went thru Mia Long, Mario Rubio, Ted Cruz, and every other non-white speaker. 

    cnn aired their anchors, blitzer and whazzhername, and all they could talk about was how Bobby Jindal had turned down the RNC invitation to speak. And just two days earlier biltzer had reported that Jindal had replied to the RNC invitation saying in view of the approaching hurricane he felt he had a higher obligation to the residents of his state. 

    As a Vietnam veteran I know full well that American media reporting leaves a lot to be desired, but there is no doubt that the guy with the bumper sticker reading “DON’T TRUST THE LIBERAL MEDIA” is 1000% correct.
