It’s been a rough week for the left. Romney’s poll numbers are growing, there are no skeletons in his closet, and his running mate is destroying their rhetoric on Medicare (not to mention he has women across the country swooning over him).
“They’re freaked,” Glenn said on radio this morning.
Even Michael Moore has come out and said that Americans better get used to saying “President Romney.”
Hopefully no one has told the MSNBC lineup about Moore’s comment, because after their state of mind last night, they might completely lose it. Their “analysis” of last night’s events at the RNC can only be described as completely separated from reality.
Here’s Chris Matthews:
“Is this constant barrage of assault – saying the guy is basically playing an old game of demagoguery politics where you take the money from the worker bees and give it to the poor people to buy votes. That’s basically what they’re charging him with. All big style, big city machine from 50 years ago.”
…so they’re accusing Mitt Romney of saying President Obama is redistributing the wealth. And somehow that’s shocking?
“You have the President on record saying rich people they don’t pay their fair share,” Glenn said. “I don’t want you to hurt you. If we redistribute the wealth it’s a good thing.”
But it get’s worse.
“He keeps saying Chicago, by the way. Have you noticed? It sends that message that this guys helping the poor people in the bad neighborhoods, screwing us.”
“Is that really what we think of when we hear Chicago?” Glenn asked. “That’s not what I think of.”
Gangster politics is what most sane people think of when they hear the word Chicago in a political sense, Glenn noted.
If Chris Matthews is going to accuse Romney of conspiratorial code language, he could at least get it right.
“Here’s the smear,” Glenn started. “This is a corrupt, union, mob boss administration. Corrupt. Dead people voting, political machine, out of Chicago.”
So now conservatives can’t say the word Chicago without being accused of racism? Seriously? Mentioning the city that the president is from is too “extreme” for Chris Matthews?
“Really? Because there’s more white people than black people in Chicago…” Stu pointed out.
If anything, it says something about the man making the accusation, to be able to turn the use of a city into a racial overtone.
“If they could get ride of the crazy progressive politics, Chicago would be great,” Glenn said. “It really is one of the greatest cities in America. It’s completely corrupt, but it’s a great city.”
But now you can’t talk about it… unless you’re a progressive.
“This is the good news. The good news is not a sane person on the planet that’s watching them and saying ‘yep, they’re right on that one,’” Glenn joked.
Earlier in the radio show, Glenn pointed out that MSNBC and their ridiculous smears are becoming a comedy show. This one just one of MANY examples from their coverage last night on the RNC of them “seeing racism” within completely unrelated remarked.
“They think everything is about them,” Glenn described.
That’s why they have the ability to take every comment from the mouth of someone who disagrees with their political ideology and turn it into a personal attack is nothing short of narcissism.
Sorry MSNBC, but it’s not all about you.
“The country’s bigger than you, the presidency is bigger than you, the mood shot is bigger than you,” Glenn said.
“It’s like we have no history outside of the last four years. Their narcissism is crazy out-of-control.”
Just for laughs, here is another examples of MSNBC’s post-RNC “analysis”
