Chris Matthews on his Obama interview: “He came to us. He came amongst us.”

posted at 10:11 pm on December 5, 2013 by Mary Katharine Ham

And, lo, the president came upon them, and the glory of the president shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

As for the interview itself, it was “extraordinary,” according to other MSNBC contributors.

It includes such insights as Joe Biden will go down in history as one of the greatest veeps of all time. And, the real problem with the media is that it puts far too little faith and focus on government’s awesome successes.

And, because it’s hard to keep up with all of Matthews’ inane utterances, we missed this stunner from “Morning Joe” today:

Matthews was on “Morning Joe” this morning to promote his interview with President Obama when he launched into a rant.

Obama “has had a very difficult opposition out there … who from the very beginning wanted to destroy this presidency,” he said. “And some of it is ethnic, and some is good old ideology. But they way they treated this guy is unusual in our history.”

“Al Gore accepted the fact, even though he won by 600,000 votes, that W. was president. And the Democrats accepted the legitimacy of George W. Bush 100 percent,” he added, when host Joe Scarborough tried to push back a bit.

“There is an asymmetry here between the hard right and the Democratic center, there is a real asymmetry, Joe,” he continued. “There really is. And to say that they are both the same is not true.”

Dear nonpartisan:

If Obama’s speeches are so captivating, name a single line in them that will be recorded in the history books.

I can think of a few, but all of them are examples of hubristic arrogance ([my nomination] is the moment the rise of the oceans began to slow, and the planet began to heal), out-of-touch, unrecognizably American pronouncements (You didn’t build that, somebody else helped you along the way; the future does not belong to those who insult the Prophet of Islam), or lowbrow partisan shots (Republicans can’t just criticize, you have to offer ideas.)

BKennedy on December 6, 2013 at 11:56 AM

It’s ignorant to suggest this is Obama’s doing.

verbaluce on December 6, 2013 at 10:32 AM

You’re right. Just because a lack of integrity is bound up in the heart of a liberal journalist, doesn’t mean that we should blame the most powerful person in the world (is it still okay to call him that, since he is trying to give that title to Putin?) for refusing to speak with a journalist with integrity.

My wife and I used to love watching Charlie Rose ambush unprepared politicians of all stripes, because anyone who represents us needs to have the integrity to uphold the public trust. His questioning was calm, rational and so analytical I hated to call him a liberal.

So the most powerful man in the world is afraid to use “just words” with someone who is more serious in their use than he is? No problem! I’m sure we can make room on The View couch for the perfect physical specimen. And it’s journalists’ own fault that they have lowered their standards.

Meanwhile, The View ladies are working full time, while Charlie Rose now has to have a moonlighting gig.

When Mandela was imprisoned and struggling to end apartheid, the Republican Party — through the policies of the Reagan administration and the work of party activists — opposed U.S. sanctions against the white supremacist regime. Though they didn’t support apartheid by any means, they turned a blind eye towards the cruelty of the system and failed to support Mandela in his time of greatest need. Today, Republicans will cheer on Mandela, but the Republican Party’s historical relationship with South Africa, and Mandela in particular, exposes a sad chapter in the history of the American right.

The ANC was designated as a terrorist group, but there was no ‘Terrorist Watch List, by the United States in 1961…by Democrat John F Kennedy.

The African National Congress, WHICH WAS A TERRORIST GROUP AND COMMITTED MANY ACTS OF TERROR AND CRIME – AS NELSON MANDELA REPEATEDLY ADMITTED. The ANC was strongly associated with the Soviet Union and openly COMMUNIST. This was during the Cold War and the West was attempting to stop Communism and the spread of the Soviet Union’s sphere of influence.

According to John Kerry, in the 1970s, the U.S. government placed the members and representatives of the ANC, including its leaders like Mandela, Walter Sisulu, and Govan Mbeki – the father of South African President Thabo Mbeki – on the U.S. Terrorist Watch List.

A full-page advertisement appeared in the January 28, 1987 issue of the Washington Times with a picture of Oliver Tambo, leader of the South African Marxist terrorist group known as the African National Congress (ANC), standing next to Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev. Next to it was a composite photograph of Tambo standing next to U.S. Secretary of State George Shultz. The headlines of the ad, which was sponsored by a coalition of conservative groups, asked: “Which Bothers You More?”

The purpose of the demonstration and the full-page advertisement was to protest against the profoundly significant meeting — held that same day — between George Shultz and Oliver Tambo. Many political observers regarded this meeting as an official Reagan Administration stamp of approval on a Communist terrorist group that not only has the blood of thousands of innocent human beings on its hands but is also bent on violently overthrowing a government friendly to the United States.

It was bad enough that the U.S. Secretary of State would take the unprecedented step of meeting with the leader of a terrorist organization that seeks the overthrow of a legitimate government. Even worse, the Shultz-Tambo meeting exceeded the exchange of official viewpoints and represented an astonishing “meeting of minds” between the two men. This startling fact came to light in the form of a revelation by Oliver Tambo himself.

On January 28, 1987, the same day as the meeting, Tambo made a guest appearance on the television program Nightline. The very first question Ted Koppel asked his guest was: “Dr. Tambo, I get the impression that you said what you were ready to say to Secretary Shultz, and Secretary Shultz said what he was ready to say to you. But in terms of a meeting of minds, that really didn’t happen today, did it?”

Tambo’s response surprised even Ted Koppel: “Well, to some extent it did.” The ANC leader went on to explain that the government of the United States and the Marxist-oriented African National Congress share a common objective or goal for South Africa!

This revelation is of profound significance, for the ANC’s objective for South Africa was long ago spelled out in detail in a document known as the Freedom Charter. This document, written and prepared for the ANC by the South African Communist Party, calls for the confiscation of private property and the establishment of a Soviet-style dictatorship of the proletariat. Tambo himself admitted on July 30, 1986, some six months prior to the meeting with Shultz: “The ANC and the SA Communist Party have common objectives….”

Mandela’s record was cleared in 2008by Republican George W Bush. Bush signed the bill in time for the Nobel Peace Prize winner’s 90th birthday on 18 July 2008.

New York Times: Party Led By Mandela Now Owns Up To Atrocities

13 May 1997

South Africa’s governing party admitted today that it used torture, executions, and land mines during its fight against apartheid, opening a new chapter in this country’s efforts to come to terms with its past.

Senior officials of the African National Congress also said they could have done far more to stop the gruesome practice in the black townships of ”necklacing” people suspected of cooperating with the South African security forces. Such people were pinned inside a car tire, doused in gasoline, set on fire and left to die.

Party officials had long resisted appearing before the commission, saying their actions were excusable because they had been fighting a ”just war.” Today’s testimony before the Truth and Reconciliation Commission represented a major step toward holding the winners in the struggle against the white apartheid Government accountable for their share of atrocities.

The testimony came after more than 300 members of the Congress, including most Cabinet ministers and Deputy President Thabo Mbeki, who has been designated by the Congress to succeed Nelson Mandela as President, submitted amnesty applications in time to meet a Saturday midnight deadline.

Last year Archbishop Tutu told President Mandela that he would resign unless A.N.C. members recognized that they had committed gross violations of human rights and needed to apply for amnesty.

The Congress appeared before the commission last August, but at that time it made only a formal written submission. This time, the party also submitted another 139 pages of written testimony before answering questions. The testimony includes 33 pages of responses and requests for elaboration by the Truth Commission, including more details on deaths at the Congress’s bases in Angola, the use of land mines in border areas and details about 15 Congress members who were executed for spying and mutiny.

In submitting testimony to the commission, the Congress said it would take responsibility for 500 bombings over 11 years, and perhaps for another 95, but it could not be sure of the precise number.

I will never defend South Africa’s Apartheid state or the atrocities committed by the white government, but I also will not canonise Nelson Mandela. He was a great, but not perfect man. We must keep history in context. For example, Reagan didn’t support the Apartheid state. He was against the ANC, which was strongly-aligned with the Soviet Union. Preventing the spread of communism, especially in Africa, was of manifest importance to the West in the 1970s and 1980s.

Mandela had every reason to be an angry man before, during, and after his imprisonment. He chose reconciliation and to abandon violence, anger, and resentment. He easily could have become another Mugabe and destroyed his country with racial violence and ‘black empowerment’ economic schemes. He didn’t. For all of that, he should be enormously commended.

You know, it’s weird. Bill Clinton was President for 8 years and he never ‘came around.’

Of course, you shouldn’t really be surprised. You see, in the Democratic Party, you can be a Southern Governor like Billy Jeff and never take one act in your 12 years to remove the confederate flag from your capitol and sign Act 985 making the birthdays of Martin Luther King, Jr, the preeminent leader of the civil-rights movement, and Robert E Lee, the general who led the Confederate army, a state holiday – TO BE OBSERVED ON THE SAME DAY – AND STILL GET ELECTED President of the United States of America.

Then, as POTUS, you can award the Presidential Medal of Freedom to a staunch segregationist like William J Fullbright. Yes, you can! And, you can do all of this and STILL be the putative first black President of the United States of America.

Why? Because in the Democratic Party, the Bobby Byrds never cooooommmmmme hoooooommmmme tooooooooo rooooooooossssttttt!

Never once has Obama disavowed the cultist depictions or words used to reference him. I’d go as far as to say, his entire election (and presidency) apparatus lays on that as a foundation without which Obama would be nothing.

Mr. Obama is a failure because he is personally underwhelming. he has acted with both arrogance and contrary to wisdom. He has trampled over proven tradition and methods to install his personal vision on our nation. Yet he has failed because we have not fully yielded to his greatness? Poppycock.

We are more divided than ever as a country because of his abject failure to understand the American people and guide them wisely as our elected leader.

Since 2008 we’ve persevered as a nation in spite of him.

[Sarcasm on] Oh poor Al gore. How was he to know that they were going to change the rules to getting elected president on him [sarcasm off] To be series this is always horse s**t. Candidates campaign the way they do to shape voting patterns to benefit them. Both Gore and Bush campaigned to win the electoral college. If you change what would win the presidency (like popular vote) then the candidates will change how they campaign.(I mean it’s like arguing a team is the real world series champion because they scored more runs during the series than the team that won more games. You go into the world series trying to win more games and if your strategy is anything but that as a result you’re an idiot.)

Worth remembering every time some leftist starts whining that Gore “really” won: 30 states voted in favor of George W. Bush, 20 states voted for Al Gore.

The claim that Gore won the popular vote is false, anyway. The popular vote is never completely counted in a presidential election. Once you determine that a particular candidate has won the electoral votes for a state, it’s pointless — but very expensive — to continue counting the votes that are left in a state. If the number of absentee votes that remain to be counted after election day is too small to change the outcome of the electoral votes for that state, then many states don’t bother counting all the absentee ballots.

The popular vote margin favoring Gore when the electoral votes were settled was so thin that we’ll never really know if he would have actually won the popular vote if all votes had been counted. It could just as easily have gone the other way, again.

But the key thing to remember is this: nobody counts all the popular votes, because the popular vote doesn’t determine the winner. And never has.

Somebody should make a book talking about Obama’s administration Biblical jargon. Then again, when Israel goes into war with Iran (accelerated due to Obama) we’ll all be blown back to the Bronze Age, anyway!

Relax don’t do it
When you want to go to it
Relax don’t do it
When you want to come
Relax don’t do it
When you want to come
When you want to come

But shoot it in the right direction
Make making it your intention-ooh yeah
Live those dreams
Scheme those schemes
Got to hit me
Hit me
Hit me with those laser beams

I believe “fired up and ready to go” was pretty catchy. And then there was the one about oceans not rising or some such garbage. How about “change we can believe in”? You appear to be correct, this magnificent orator has little to hang his hat on.

Define a’plenty. Once a month? And yes, Hannity is a gusher but at least he’s sober.

Including the most important one: Tennessee.

Hell, even that 49 state loser Mondale won his home state.

If the headline is an accurate quote of Matthews, he’s a bigger moron than was supposed.

So it was that kind of party. Freaks.

If Obama wants to rally his people and the media sycophants back to his sweeping vision of “transformation” (United States of Socialist America), I suggest more Greek columns and Hitleresque rhetoric. Heck, it worked in 2008. But I hope he doesn’t take my advice, because with a little more pressure and a resounding loss next November, Lord Barry will crack and go into the White House bunker with Moochbell for a little Adolf and Eva redux. I can dream can’t I? Can you just imagine the funeral he would get in this country? Heck, it would be bigger than his commie bro Mandela. And isn’t that what Obama really wants after all, to be remembered and “canonized” like JFK. Let’s help him get his just deserts by staying on his butterfly a$$ like white on rice.

There is a reason Matthews takes up a time slot on tv, even though he is brain dead

The slot is costly. He now functions like the old test signals they used to broadcast. He prevents the tv screen from going dark, and generates a stream of decibels

I believe big corporations now own broadcasting channels for the purpose of keeping everyone else off the air
