Matthews: Why do Republicans hate our perfect President?

posted at 12:41 pm on July 18, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

Earlier today, I advised those who engage in politics as a vocation or an avocation to keep Psalm 146 in mind — Put not your trust in princes, in a son of man, in whom there is no salvation.  The worship of political figures leads to very bad results, and among the more minor of consequences is it makes one speak like a fool.  That brings us to Chris Matthews, who apparently got annoyed with John Sununu’s crack about Barack Obama needing to learn how to be more American during a media conference call, a remark for which Sununu apologized almost immediately.  Matthews immediately called a convocation to address the need for tolerance by inviting left-wing Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and one-time Louis Farrakhan defender (and later, critic) Rep. Keith Ellison to discuss what haters those Republicans are.

Before Matthews could let them speak a word, however, he told his MSNBC audience that Barack Obama should be above criticism, because he’s, er … perfect. No, really:

MATTHEWS: “This guy’s done everything right. He’s raised his family right…. Everything he’s done is as clean as a whistle. He’s not only never broken any law–he’s never done anything wrong. He’s the perfect father. The perfect husband. The perfect American.”

Small wonder Microsoft wanted out of the Church of the Divine Obama:

The inherent constraints of being locked into a joint venture sometimes handcuffed Microsoft and NBC.

Microsoft, in particular, had grown frustrated by contract terms requiring it to exclusively feature MSNBC.com content on its own websites. That exasperation was exacerbated by the MSNBC cable channel’s strategy to counter Fox News Channel‘s appeal to conservative viewers by tailoring its programming for an audience with a liberal viewpoint.

The strategy fed a perception that material from MSNBC’s website was politically slanted, too.

“Being limited to MSNBC.com content was problematic to us because we couldn’t have the multiple news sources and the multiple perspectives that our users were telling us that they wanted,” said Bob Visse, general manager of MSN.com.

It’s okay to like Barack Obama if you support his policies.  It’s the worship that gets us into trouble — and when the media becomes the high priest to those in power and declares all criticism to be hatred, well … that’s when the real problems start.

Chrissy’s Depends are leaking and he is confused. He is feeling that trickle on his leg again and thinks it means something good.

farsighted on July 18, 2012 at 1:15 PM

OK. I broke down and listened to his rant. Ick. There must be spittle stuck to the back of my monitor screen.

Bottom line for Matthews:

It’s racist to vet a candidate – especially if he got away without being vetted last time around (with our help). So…… we just keep screaming, playing the race card, maligning voters (especially those “yahoos” in Flyover Country), slinging pooh and talk about everything but real issues.

And if we can’t get him reelected, I am truly irrelevant with no hope of another thrill going up my leg to ummmmmmmm……. wellll…….. that was really the best thing about BO….. the thrill that kept my wee willy alive.

Dusty on July 18, 2012 at 1:18 PM

Everything he’s done is as clean as a whistle. He’s not only never broken any law–he’s never done anything wrong.

Aside from the illegal drug use (the “choom gang” in high school, the blow “when he could afford it” in college, etc.) and the shady real estate deals for his house in Chicago? Even Obama himself admitted it was wrong for him to allow Tony Rezko to get him a sweetheart deal for his mortgage, and then to buy the empty building lot next door to the Obama house (for $600,000), and sell a small portion of it back to the Obamas, rendering the remainder of the lot too small for a building permit, essentially making the adjoining Rezko lot worthless and giving the Obamas their desired “privacy” at a bargain-basement price. (But apparently when one is “perfect,” one can expect their felon “friends” to give them gifts worth hundreds of thousands of dollars, without expecting anything in return . . . right Chrissy?).

The remark Matthews made about Obama getting to be president of the Harvard Law Review by way of a “blind test” was also priceless. We don’t know how Obama became an editor of the Review, since Mr. Perfect refuses to release his academic records. We do know the review had an affirmat*ve act*on policy, and that Obama defended that very same AA policy in a letter to the editor of the Harvard student newspaper (a letter that was poorly written by Mr. Perfect.). We also know that Obama has admitted in public statements that he was the beneficiary of AA in his academic career. According to other editors who worked on the review with Obama, Mr. Perfect became president of the Harvard Law Review after an election among the editors — Obama was chosen as a compromise candidate, but only after 19 rounds of balloting — and not as a result of any “blind test.” This was during the 1980′s, at a time when the Harvard campus was being blasted, both internally and externally, for its lack of “diversity.”

People on the right don’t care about reality, Chrissy? People like you refuse to recognize reality, as demonstrated by your insistence on making up your own demonstrably false “facts” to support your idiotic narratives.

AZCoyote on July 18, 2012 at 1:19 PM

Your first sentence is what it’s all about Ed.

I try – seriously try – to put myself in the mind of Matthews, even if for a few terrifying moments. I try to see if I can at least get a gist of where he’s coming from. Just for a moment I’ll attempt to take away the frustration over Obama’s lies, his manipulations, and outright blatant attempts to dismantle freedom; try to put the phrase “perfect” into a more human perspective of a hard-working, ideal-minded politician, in spite of the idiot things that come out of his mouth. I’ve really honesty tried this…

…and I just can’t do it.

You have to be worshipping in order to say these kinds of things, or to sit there like Ellison and Robinson with sphincter-tight smugness to listen to such pandering nonsense.

It’s pitiful, truly pitiful.

somewhatconcerned on July 18, 2012 at 1:20 PM

Matthews is an idiot. Even Obama has admitted to drug use which is clearly against the law. So how has he never violated a law? What about his flaunting of the Constitution and separation of powers. Matthews has clearly jumped the shark.

“I have over 50 employees and have been in business for about sixteen years now and I am happy to say that we have been blessed because of sacrifice. When the president made his comments last Friday about, “If you got a business you didn’t build that,” I don’t where the heck he got that from. And to me, it was a reprehensible statement and he doesn’t know what the heck is going on in this country. President Obama’s comments reflect just how unqualified he is to lead this economic recovery. He really doesn’t understand what it’s about. … As an African-American woman, people think I need to vote for Obama because he’s black. Well, I’ve been black a long time and he won’t get my vote.”

Hey Matthews! If he is positively perfect in every way, do we now start referring to him as BARRY POPPINS?

pilamaye on July 18, 2012 at 1:29 PM

“He’s a perfect father” Chris Matthews
“I don’t want my daughters punished with a baby” Barrack Obama, wisely teaching his girls to take responsibility for their choices.

“He’s not only not broken any law–he’s never done anything wrong.” The choom gang is laughing hysterically right now. As for the latter claim, it is so laughable and so obviously false (Obama is NOT Jesus), that it is not worth refuting.

“The perfect husband” Just like when he dissed Michelle on the airplane and forgot about her, or when he dissed her at the basketball game and wouldn’t kiss her.

“The Perfect American” Yes indeed, whose policies have destroyed us, and who wants to fundamentally transform America. If you fundamentally transform America, then you must necessarily transform its people–the Americans. Why transform America if you are already a perfect American, who certainly would need no transforming?

jpferman on July 18, 2012 at 1:29 PM

MATTHEWS: “This guy’s done everything right. He’s raised his family right…. Everything he’s done is as clean as a whistle. He’s not only never broken any law–he’s never done anything wrong. He’s the perfect father. The perfect husband. The perfect American.”

It is hilarious to see Chrissy say this after all his whining about Iraq.
..after Obama’s “war of choice” in Libya……..I guess Chrissy is now a big fan of Presidents going to war against oil rich countries that did not attack us and posed to imminent threat.

Nothing wrong at all….Obama’s perfect.

…in fact…..it gives him a thrill up his leg:

“I have never heard anyone call his opponent un-American”

Ummmm, Chris, ever hear of the name Bush?

And, just to set the record straight, he was not selected by a blind test for Harvard Law Review, Obama was the first one ever elected to that position, all the times before it was based on academics…and Obama was one of the few, very few (as Harvard Law Review editor) not to be asked to clerk for a Supreme Court Justice…plus is bar exam was taken back and his license revoked upon review.

According to media reports, friends of the Obamas have said that Michelle was preparing to divorce Obama after he lost his race for the congressional seat held by Bobby Rush. Also, in a magazine interview she gave before the 2008 election, Michelle suggested that she and Obama don’t even sleep in the same bed. The Obamas’ “perfect” marriage is as phony as everything else about them.

We don’t know how Obama became an editor, because he refuses to release his academic records. We do know that the law review had an AA policy at the time, and that Obama defended the law review’s AA policy in a letter (a poorly-written letter) he wrote at the time to the editor of Harvard’s undergrad student newspaper.

One thing we do know for sure is this: Obama did not become president of the law review through some “blind test” as Matthews states.

So tell me, if your side is the party that loves America, why do you go on and on and what has been so horrible and wrong with America for the past century (since you guys still like to play the slavery card)? About all of the things that the Founding Fathers did wrong in regards to the Founding documents?

Will Obama’s Election End ‘Kill Haole Day’ in Hawaii?

Kill haole day has been around for decades. It’s not a myth; young people say it happens, and sometimes incidents hit the press on the islands.

Local school kids in Hawaii will harass and sometimes beat up on mainland young people, largely Caucasian. Tourists don’t know of this culture, but local people do. It isn’t discussed openly or written about in newspapers, but it has been part of island practice among some of the young people.

In some of Hawaiʻi’s schools, the last day of school before summer is reputedly known as Kill Haole Day. The origins of the day are unknown, but the tradition dates back to the 1950s.

I’m sure we can guess which side Obama was during Kill Haole Day

You have no idea how intolerant I am of liberals. I make sport of them. *LOL* And one liblet got all cheesed off about my declaring that!

That’s why I avoid arguing with liberals. It’s a craziness, but liberals find some demented sense of validation when they are being argued. So, I let them go on their merry way.

I reject liberal premises out of hand. That is the worst thing you can do to a liberal: Dismiss him/her as if they don’t exist.

Liberals cannot handle being ignored.

So sorry to hear that Sununu apologized cuz I hoped we had found somebody who would be unapologetic for telling the truth.

As for Chrissie … he’s another one who must be choomin’ Obama’s exhale to be able to hurl the things he spews without blowin’ chunks. I still don’t get how the slimestreamers anticipate they’ll be benefiting bcuz if the progsocialists should succeed, the media will be the first to go in the great purge that ensues.

stukinIL4now on July 18, 2012 at 2:16 PM

So, it sure sounds like Chrissy wants to invade Obama’s virginia. Is that green-eyed monster what has you so huffy?

Flora Duh on July 18, 2012 at 2:10 PM

You’ve nailed it. The Commie trash that infects HotAir are jusssssssssssssst liiiiiiiiiiiiiike Chris Matthews. Accordingly, when they read our posts about Matthews, and his homo-erotic worship of the Socialist man-god, they feel personally attacked … and rightly so.

OhEssYouCowboys on July 18, 2012 at 2:17 PM

I predict an on-air breakdown for Chrissy…sometime in early November.

I would applaud you for knowing the difference between a Chris Matthews breakdown and his ordinary, everyday performances.

Left Coast Right Mind on July 18, 2012 at 2:20 PM

Why does Obama have Axelrod, Jarrett, Gibbs,Carville, or Carney to cover his tracks when Matthews will do the job for free?

Hey Matthews! If he is positively perfect in every way, do we now start referring to him as BARRY POPPINS?

pilamaye on July 18, 2012 at 1:29 PM

I am so stealing that. :-)

Mary in LA on July 18, 2012 at 1:46 PM

That reference reminds me of the photo of Obama and Michelle in New Orleans, where he is holding an umbrella while he tries to figure out how to walk through a gate.

onlineanalyst on July 18, 2012 at 2:34 PM

Matthews has some real deep deep white privilege guilt.
That’s what it all amounts to.

You should be wondering why you and your party hate this country so much.

Uppereastside on July 18, 2012 at 1:28 PM

Stupidest thing you’ve ever posted here. Bar none.

Your Party owns the Democrat Senate Majority Leader, who cheered for the U.S. to lose in Iraq.

Your Party also owned the bitter clinger John Murtha, who falsely claimed that the US military had intentionally murdered Iraqi civilians.

Your Party also owns Dick “Turban” Durbin, who compared the US military to the Khmer Rouge and the Nazis.

And your Party also owns the least-qualified Senator in New York History, who is now the least qualified Secretary of State in US History. As least-qualified Senator, she called a decorated military General a Liar to his face, before he had even opened his mouth to testify.

You must be so proud of all of them.

I Know There’s An “Ethnic Piece” to the Puzzle of Why Republcians Attack Obama

He has got us guys … it’s because Obama is ……. Hawaiian

Will Obama’s Election End ‘Kill Haole Day’ in Hawaii?

Kill haole day has been around for decades. It’s not a myth; young people say it happens, and sometimes incidents hit the press on the islands.

Local school kids in Hawaii will harass and sometimes beat up on mainland young people, largely Caucasian. Tourists don’t know of this culture, but local people do. It isn’t discussed openly or written about in newspapers, but it has been part of island practice among some of the young people.

In some of Hawaiʻi’s schools, the last day of school before summer is reputedly known as Kill Haole Day. The origins of the day are unknown, but the tradition dates back to the 1950s.

I’m sure we can guess which side Obama was during Kill Haole Day

J_Crater on July 18, 2012 at 1:54 PM

I’ve written here many times about Kill Haole Day, because I experienced it first-hand when my family lived in Hawai’i in the mid 1960s.

One of my uncles, who’s still alive, was a teacher at Punahou School in the early 1950s. He confirms that this quaint tradition was practiced there at the time.

And Punahou is where O’bama went some 20 years later. Until it was magically “disappeared” during the summer of 2008, Punahou’s wiki page noted that Kill Haole Day was practiced at the school. But that would interfere with Hope and Change, so it vanished.

Del Dolemonte on July 18, 2012 at 2:49 PM

Don’t you have even a little bit of personal dignity?

Liam on July 18, 2012 at 1:42 PM

The concept of “personal dignity” is foreign to anonymous trolls, almost by definition.

Some might have a smidgen of genuine personal dignity in real life when dealing with people face to face and their identity is known, but not when trolling anonymously and deliberately saying things that might get them punched in the nose in real life.

It takes a pretty sick warped personality to habitually troll on regular basis.

Didn’t Obama refuse to pay parking tickets for 15 years or so? That’s some of his lighter broken laws.

J_Crater on July 18, 2012 at 1:54 PM

As far as I’m concerned, all investment and tourism in Hawaii should be stopped, and the islands should be allowed to devolve to their earlier, aboriginal state.

I’ve just never had any desire to visit the land where Spam is King.

OhEssYouCowboys on July 18, 2012 at 2:05 PM

Spam sushi is delicious. As are Spam Won Ton and Spam Fu Young. And Spam stuffed Hasu ain’t too shabby either. But don’t forget that Hawai’i has some of the finest cuisine on the planet. Each of the major islands has at least 2 or 3 world class eateries, and Honolulu has a batch. And they have delicious fresh seafood coming out of their ears.

We can’t just abandon Hawai’i, simply due to its military value. And it’s also home to some of the finest telescopes on the planet, so is invaluable from a scientific standpoint.

BTW, the islands started to “get ruined” long before the US showed up there. The aboriginals themselves, simply by arriving there, started the decline. And there were plenty of other villains as well; immigrants from Asia, and from Europe. All of them introduced alien animals and alien plants, some on purpose but many by accident.

The State’s social/moral decline is solely due to the Democrats having controlled the Government there for 5 decades. No one else is to blame for that, because a Republican elected official in Hawai’i is even rarer than one in Massachusetts.

OhEssYouCowboys on July 18, 2012 at 2:05 PM

Topographically, Hawaii, like California, is a beautiful state. It’s the leftist sheeple that make it ugly.

totherightofthem on July 18, 2012 at 2:06 PM

It is still possible to go there for a visit and not get too bothered by those folks. For sure, there are certain places to totally avoid at all times, and certain places to avoid late at night. And one also has to be aware of one’s surroundings constantly, as the State still has one of the planet’s worst ICE (meth) epidemics (see “Dog the Bounty Hunter”). Simple theft is rampant; when some friends and I were out there in 2004 a visiting Marine jumped into the ocean to rescue a drowning local, and when they got back on shore he found out that someone had stolen all of his stuff on the beach while he was saving the kid’s life.

As for the scenery, it’s like the Grand Canyon. Everyone should experience such beauty at least once in their lives. And the good thing is that one can now fly directly from the Mainland to the Big Island, Mau’i or Kaua’i without having to go thru the hellhole that is Honolulu. Kaua’i in fact may be the most beautiful island on the planet.

Del Dolemonte on July 18, 2012 at 3:11 PM

Can you say cult of personality? I really believe it’s a sickness Obama’s supporters have – and it has permeated our society since 2008. For one thing, they are hardwired to call anyone who criticizes him a racist. My own sister, a hardcore Dem, called me a racist the other day. I couldn’t believe it.

TarheelBen on July 18, 2012 at 3:14 PM

farsighted on July 18, 2012 at 2:50 PM

I agree!

But my point to the liblet was a double-edged sword.

If he/she/it has any personal dignity, then how is it possible to lie and do other such things even if being paid for it? At what point does $7.25 and hour surpass a personal core?

Or, if the troll actually believes what it posts, where is the dignity of that kind of horrid personality?

Either way, in my estimate, the troll only defined liberalism downward, making it further impossible for Conservatives to give any credence at all to liberalism.
