Chris Matthews: Is Obama just too darned intellectual?

posted at 9:51 pm on November 20, 2009 by Allahpundit

Believe it or not, he’s not just spinning here. He’s sincerely criticizing Obama for some of his dopier decisions lately; he just can’t help letting his admiration for The One get in the way and filter it as a matter of excess virtue. None of the problems he cites are necessarily — or actually — the product of too much deep thinkin’. Obama’s bow to Akihito was, in fact, stupid since it had the opposite intended effect. His deliberations on Afghanistan are fine, but should have been conducted six months ago given McChrystal’s warning that the war would be lost within a year. The KSM decision is dumb not only because it’ll give archterrorists a media platform (as Matthews himself acknowledges) but because it’s completely incoherent from the standpoint of due process. Obama’s problem isn’t that he’s too thoughtful, in other words; thoughtfulness is all to the good. It’s that he’s indecisive, slow to move on public priorities that don’t coincide with his agenda, and too eager to be liked abroad. A self-critical intellectual could correct all of that. How ’bout it, champ?

Needless to say, another reason for the “intellectual” framework here is, of course, as a counterpoint to Palin, who’s had a great week while the numbers for Einstein and his signature bill slip further into the toilet. There must be a unified field theory that explains both phenomena and, of course, makes the Democrat look as good as possible. Voila. Click the image to watch.

When you have an endowed chair on the short bus like Chris does, everybody looks like an intellectual to you.

And kudos to Allah. It’s good to see that you finally figured out where you left your upper-shelf snark the last time you used it. It’s far more refreshing than that low-hanging fruit flavor you’ve been serving up lately.

Don’t forget Matthews was a speechwriter for Carter, so he’s probably having a ton of repressed memories come flooding back over the past couple of months with all the Obama=Carter comparisons, and in Chris’ mind Jimmy was treated horribly because he was just too darn intellectual for the American public. So if it’s not 1977 all over again, it’s at least a reprise of 1979 and the ‘malaise’ speech time period.

AnninCA on November 21, 2009 at 1:21 AM

Idiocracy (2006) and sequels

We have been living that film lately. Many of us are damaged, some more than others.

Mr. Chris has a brain so distorted by his love of a dream and the PC programming of the last several decades that he has lost all sense. Bill Gates has done great things. Can you imagine if a TV personality appeared and said that Bill gave him chills?

We have a US President and Attorney General who should not even have law degrees let alone be given access to positions where they can do really stupid things on a grand scale. If you mention that fact, you are a horror and the zombies will get a rush when they call you out or abuse you.

The PC libs get a pleasure out of this stuff that is similar to a dog sticking its nose out of a moving car’s window.

I think we need a movie or talk show with conservatives appearing to make some of these observations and then being torn to shreads. Bigots, fools and racists deserve no better.

Another movie with The One making all his campaign promises come true would be great also. Honest, sturdy, 1930′s socialistic ideas taking the world by storm. Like Herby The Love Bug fighting his way into a race and then beating the Ferraris, Hummers, Caddy limos and even the General Lee as the crowd goes nuts. Then it would turn out that he had a totally new type of engine invented and developed with a government stimulus community grant.

I think you’re onto a creative line of thinking. I personally find the current conservative energy invigorating. People seemed stuck with Bush, frankly.

Now, they seem unstuck. The ACORN investigation is fascinating, quality, and absolutely hits the sweet spot. Flawless so far.

Sarah’s Facebook cracks me up. The left was just so sure no conservatives understood the internet. I predict some of the right blogs will unlock the key and match Huffington Post without the obvious national enquirer approach within a year.

But you mention movies and creative arts, which is an open field right now.

But Hollywood, in spite of what some may think, is actually hurting for money and would go for projects that capture this spirit, provided it’s not back to the McCarthy era spirit.

It would be fascinating and timely.

“Leading with his chin?” in the Obama picture…it’s more like leading with his imbecillic teenage brain, and a narcissistic Messianic attitude.

n0doz on November 21, 2009 at 1:52 AM

That’s right Chrissie, baby. Obama is one intellectual powerhouse. And that is why he keeps a death-grip on his grades, SAT scores, transcripts, papers. His brain power zooms out of the stratosphere. It is because of his sheer humbleness that he will not disclose these facts; would not want to make the rest of us feel bad. He’s that kind of unique and awesome person. And, yes, AnninCa, his “academic prowess” trumps all else.

betsyz on November 21, 2009 at 1:56 AM

Obama isn’t very smart. He got into Harvard because of affirmative action. His major and minor decisions have been supremely stupid his first year in office.

The only thing Obama was smart about was playing liberal idiocy to the full effect to get elected. Liberals always want the easy way out in life, decent people know that isn’t the way to go, but people like Obama are willing to take that path. i.e. lie, cheat, steal etc… for a certain goal.

misterpeasea on November 21, 2009 at 2:23 AM

AnninCA: I challenge you to disprove this source with a “factual one”.

You can’t.

Barack Obama has not released transcripts for his grades from Occidental College, Columbia University and Harvard Law. He has also not released his SAT and LSAT scores. No explanation has been offered for not releasing them.

Obama must have had very average grades in high school since he only ended up at the moderately competitive Occidental College. With affirmative action, even an average set of grades would have gotten him into a more competitive undergraduate institution. In fact, for unknown reasons he did not apply as a graduate of the school he attended in Hawaii, but as a foreign transfer student from Indonesia. One possible reason for hiding his record in Hawaii is that he admits cutting class and doing drugs for most of his time in high school. It’s also hard to gauge his academic turnaround since no one at Columbia University seems to have known him and both Obama and Columbia refuse to release his transcripts, “Obama’s Lost Years,” Obama graduated from Columbia University (to which he transferred after his first two years at Occidental College in California), with a degree in Political Science without honors, so had a GPA less than a 3.3. His roomate Sohale Siddiqi indicated Obama itially felt alienated, felt “very lost,” and used drugs to get high, which could have led to low grades initially. The roommate indicates that he then turned serious and “stopped getting high.” Based on his overall undergraduate GPA of less than a 3.3, Mr. Obama’s admission to Harvard Law School may reflect affirmative action statutes, low grades early, then higher grades later (purely speculation) and/or other factors…
Also at Harvard Law School, Obama was accepted as one of 85-90 Editors of the Harvard Law Review. However, because of changes in the Law Review’s policies a few years earlier to insure proper “diversity” among the law review staff, half were not chosen on the basis of grades. Obama was elected President of the Law Review, as a compromise candidate among 21 others running, and which according to a Harvard Law spokesperson is not based at all on academics, but on other measures as would occur in any club.

Well, that makes sense. Obama’s just too smart to be the president for us peasants. So I vote we let him go do something more suited to his immense intellect (and ego). He can take Chris Matthews with him for, ahem, “companionship” so to speak {wink wink nudge nudge} and leave the rest of us to languish in the doldrums of despair.

johnsteele on November 21, 2009 at 8:32 AM

I think I missed something. Is there any proof that Obama is an intellectual? I haven’t seen any grade transcripts from college. I haven’t seen any lasting accomplishments that would lead me to believe he’s really that smart. I haven’t seen any policy pronouncements, that would indicate to me any deep thought about the problems facing the country. What am I missing here?

The problem with Obama is not so much that he’s an Ivy League egghead, but that he’s a Chicago Marxist propagandist egghead, surrounded by people who are less than 6 degrees separated from the CPUSA. Chicago is the home of the Communist Party USA and it’s extraordinary how many front groups and small C communists, or children of “activists” (like Axelrod) are in his circle.

The latest news on this front is that there is compelling evidence that Alice Palmer (for whom he was chief of staff before he threw her under the bus) was a “Soviet agent of influence”. B Cast interview with Trevor Loudon here (poor quality, but fascinating none the less).

Trevor is the guy who broke the Van Jones story which Beck ran with.

The definition doesn’t carry the same “weight” it did when I went to school. Back then it meant something; It’s been dumbed down to coincide with the education system.
It is in use specifically for “special” people, like an Obama, that hasn’t really accomplished anything, yet has an elevated, celebrity status.
Chrissy is such the salesman; He could sell fertilizer to a buffalo.

Blackacre on November 21, 2009 at 9:07 AM

If the criteria for intellectualism in Chairman Maobama’s case is memorizing Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” and committing to memory all socialist/marxist talking points and having that couched in speeches that the average idiot progressive nitwit can’t figure out the country is being decimated, HELL YEAH!!!!!!

On the other hand, he was an affirmative action quota filler in his school days who was involved with the Black Panthers while at Colombia, hand picked by Zbigniew Brezezinski to do the work of socialists as a community agitator(race baiting shake down artist in other words)in the thuggery of Chicago politics. Considering he’s spent in excess of one million dollars to put his school records and birth certificate under wraps(how’s that for transparency?)and add the fact he can’t think without a teleprompter, I don’t think he’s even a psuedo intellectual. He’s a fraud in every sense of the word, and is in a job that’s way over his pay grade. He’s a shining star to Democrats as they expect all blacks to be stupid enough to vote for the vote merchants and Obama doesn’t fit that stereotype the Democrats love so much.

My verdict. He’s no smarter than your average AMWAY salesman.

Chris’s show will be renamed “Odd Ball” this fall.

inspectorudy on November 21, 2009 at 9:23 AM

MSNBC should be laughed off the air

Someone didn’t know what the heck I was talking about above.

The blind acceptance of Mr. Chris is indicative of the toxic effect of PC programming. It allows a man who frequently acts like an ass to keep his lofty pulpit while also destroying anyone who thinks or speaks out of the bounds of liberal PC. And it takes no brains or effort to be a master of PC. Just watch eight hours of major network TV every day. Just pick any shows.

It is scary. I have seen people actually get a visceral rush out of sticking up for PC values. On the other hand, it is almost painful for Americans to admit that we have been making a lot of mistakes with the most glaring one in November of 2008.

Watch for it yourselves.

IlikedAUH2O on November 21, 2009 at 9:25 AM

Obama does not strike me as particularly intellectual. In an IQ death match, I’m thinking he and Cuda would be awfully close; she might even score higher, I don’t know. Somewhere in the 120s would be my guess: Smart, but hardly genius level. Libs seem to have some sort of fixation with intellectual prowess, as if that is the only defining quality of a good leader. They are forever underestimating the IQ scores of Republicans and overestimating the Democrats. I’d guess most presidents fall within the 120s, with a few notable pointy-headed exceptions like Clinton and Nixon. It’s funny that the leftists sniff at Palin for being intellectually incurious. She may lack Obama’s suave delivery at time, but the substance of what she says indicates a tremendous curiosity. And unlike Obama, she doesn’t have much interest in the banalities of popular culture. She has an interest in sports, of course, but it seems like she looks at athletics as more of a metaphor for life than simply a way to entertain herself on a Sunday afternoon. Obama, OTOH, always seems to have an animated answer about stuff like Kanye West and who is going to win the NBA title (and in how many games). I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that, but for someone who is supposedly so “intellectual,” he certainly indicates a keen interest in stuff that is pretty meaningless in the grand scheme of things.

Chrissy Matthews is so pathetic these days. I used to be able to watch his program and he seemed like a genuine news guy three or four years ago. But now he’s so demeaned himself with his fawning coverage of Obama that he’s basically on the same level as Ed Schultz and the ambiguously gay duo (Olbermann/Maddow). Kinda sad.

WarEagle01 on November 21, 2009 at 9:45 AM

My only question is how long can Chris Matthews survive with his head outside of Obama’s rectum?

Do they have to insert him back in immediately after his show?

Does he have a artificial rectum he can place his head in during commercial breaks?

From what I understand his head would simply dry out, shrivel up and fall off if he goes too long outside Obama’s rectum.

darwin on November 21, 2009 at 9:49 AM

I am biased……..no doubt.

Obama is an intellectual in the sense that he lives in his own mind.

Not only is this manchild a dummy which is evident by his excessive stuttering and complete breakdown without a teleprompter.
He is also not a very eloquent speaker to people that aren’t hearing impaired. He would be the first speaker that I know of that is considered eloquent when he ALWAYS speaks in a staccato tone and usually in a monotone.
As Rush would say, for those in Rio Linda that means not fluent and monotonous.

Mathews has 500,000 people in his audience which shrinks daily. Anyone who thinks Bozo has an intellect is a complete idiot.

When off the teleprompter he’s almost incoherent. Also, intelligent people are capable of analyzing difficult situations and resolving them with timely functional solutions. Bozo has never done this in his entire life.

dogsoldier on November 21, 2009 at 11:17 AM

“intellectual”

Something to mull over…interesting.

He could be…but, we know practically zilch about the man so it’s really hard to say. At least one of his books was actually written by Bill Ayers. It could all just be smoke and mirrors, and he could indeed simply be a puppet of an Illuminati/NWO-type power structure or an international Socialist movement (though I maintain they’re one in the same). Or he could be the front man for the run of the mill politically corrupt power brokers we’ve grown accustomed to not only in Chicago, but nationwide.

Don’t think he’s an idiot…but, the teleprompter thing.

Basically he’s just an odd man and it’s astonishing that most Americans voted for him, but the “blank slate” thing is quite interesting. Maybe the secret to getting elected is to allow the voter to project their own feelings, ideas and values on to a candidate and to not allow that candidate to interfere with that process.

Matthews and his ilk are continuing the process of making The One into what they want Him to be.

What these Leftards are doing is hailing each and every elected Democrat as being more brilliant than the ones before thus painting themselves into a corner as IQ scores only go up so high. Pretty soon they’ll just run a Cray or IBM super computer for office. May as well as they reject any notion of simplicity and Humanity in favor of brutish intellectual efficiency. Don’t be fooled…what constitutes efficiency to us isn’t the same for them.

profitsbeard on November 21, 2009 at 11:25 AM

It’s been SOP for years to portray Democrats as bright, witty and engaged. All republicans must be portrayed as dumb, disconnected and disinterested. From Ike all the way through GW they repeat this mantra. Ford was a feckless stumblebum because he slipped on some stairs, GW was somehow uncoordinated because he choked on a nut, but Obama was just distracted and deep in thought when he walked into a window or tripped over a doorway or read the wrong teleprompter. Let’s never forget that Clenis was a Rhode’s Scholar, though he never bothered to finish. This crap never ends. And don’t even get me started in how they constantly tried to portray Reagan as a napping, affable dunce. The only thing remarkable about it is that, after all these years, people still buy this sh*t.

Yeah Crissy, thats what it is. B-HO is too darned smart. All us dumb Palin supporters and tea partiers are just to stupid to understand all the good he is doing for our country. You jackass!

Matthews, you need to get your head out of B-HO’s ass every now and then. Nancy-boy.

Is Chris Matthews inflating the price of crack?

I think Matthews meant to suggest that “Obama is too darned ineffectual,” but it’s hard to enunciate when you’ve got the man’s balls in your mouth.

Yes indeed; too intellectual, like a scheming narcissist.

A turd in a punch bowl is more intellectual than Chris Matthews, so……..

you, Chris, are too much of an idiot to see his lack of intelligence which is self-evident to those who are not blinded by love…

Keep suckin, Chris; you’ll eventually cum to paydirt.

I still can’t believe that MSNBC is still on the air…

Liberals have convinced themselves that they are the smart ones. So it naturally flows that if they are not understood, it’s because they are just too darn smart.
