from GretaWire and RealClear Politics:
I wonder what the thousands and thousands who right now are freezing cold and without power think about Chris Matthews’ comment below. I know what I think and I have power and heat in my house. What is wrong with him? It is one thing to have political enthusiasm and the “thrill going up his leg” (his famous quote)…but this? ”glad that we had this storm last week?”
“…I’m so glad we had that storm last week because I think the storm was one of those things. No, politically I should say. Not in terms of hurting people. The storm brought in possibilities for good politics….”
from RealClear Politics:
“Well, I think they’re more political than either you or I,” Chris Matthews said about conservatives. “I think they hate Obama. They want him out of the White House more than they want to destroy al-Qaeda. Their number one enemy in the world right now, on the right, is their hatred, hatred for Obama. And we can go into that about the white working class in the south about looking at these numbers we’ve been getting the last couple days, about racial hatred, in many cases. This isn’t about being a better president, they want to get rid of this president. That’s their number one goal and they’re willing to let Romney go to the hard center, even to the left on some issues, as long as they get rid of this guy.”
“Romney went in there tonight with 16 ounce gloves. He didn’t want to look too ferocious, he just wanted to win. And the way he wanted to win was not making himself into the right-winger that the right wing that’s supporting him really are,” Matthews also said.
NBCPhiladelphia reports Montgomery County,PA Commissioner Jim Matthews, the brother of “Hardball” host Chris Matthews, has been arrested on charges of perjury. The arrest is a result of an 18-month investigation into campaign contributions and expenses reported by Matthews.
The alleged “lie” is that Matthews denied having any business dealings with “Certified Abstract,” a title company that was to do business with the county.
Matthews, a Republican, lost his reelection bid during the primaries. He is in custody awaiting arraignment.
