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.”

Non, …I’m sure the Hitlerjugen thought exactly the same thing.

For you, genius:
Reagan was a great speaker, because the substance and validity of his speeches resonated with people’s intellect. Your Messiah isn’t worthy of this analogy, but; Hitler’s oratory power over his jedi-mind-trick-vulnerable countrymen, was due to cheap, psychological parlor tricks, and populist appeals to emotion.

The latter appears to resemble your affinity for Barry. Which, if you’re being honest…is frightening.

Then, take Holy Trinity and meld it into Everson v Board of Education, which saw the adoption of the ‘Doctrine of Separation Between Church and State’ and explain how the Court moved from Vidal to Everson.

Let me clue you into a few things about me:

1) I don’t get ‘sassy.’ I either stick a shiv in between your ribs into your heart or I take a nice, old, rusty scimitar, thrust it in about 3 inches beneath your navel and then rip it up to your adam’s apple.

2) I take being called names of any variety, but especially terms like ‘bytch’ and ‘cvnt’, as a badge of honour. It is a de facto admission of my opponent having lost.

3) I eat muffins like you for breakfast…but only after I have catheterised them with the 4″ heel of my Louboutin…and I do it in a pencil skirt.

4) I absolutely, positively DESPISE weak and whiny men, especially those that slobber all over bloody American Idol politicians.

Nonpartisan you might want to take a step back. RWM hits like a girl and frankly, you aren’t up to it.

ghostwalker1 on December 6, 2013 at 12:28 AM

A few thoughts after catching most of the way up on this thread:

1.

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

Typical fuzzy-headed liberal.

For a group of people whose intellectual, literary and moral superiority is based on rejecting the teachings of the Scripture, they sure do refer to it a lot. In fact, I think they get a snide tingle every time they misquote or misinterpret it. And even worse, they assign to a pathetic man the passages describing our glorious God.

Note #1 to Chrissy: don’t look now but your Man=god religion is showing.

Note #2 to Chrissy: that tingle you feel might just be God’s laser sight shining on you.

Do us a favor: write your own holy book, and leave ours alone.

rwenger43 on December 6, 2013 at 12:43 AM

“He came to us. He came amongst us.”

And then nonpartisan came in his pants.

If I had one question for Chrissy M. regarding this interview it would be…Spit or Swallow?

But why bother, I think we already know the answer to that….

Say, ‘member all the “respect” the Democrats showed Bush with “Chimpy McHitler”?

What if we start calling Obama “Chimpy McStalin” now?

Obama is pretty much down to the brain-dead sycophants now. Matthews is a chapter president.

there has never been a speaker in history who has captivated billions around the world like Obama

nonpartisan on December 5, 2013 at 10:43 PM

So long as we change “billions” to “hundreds of millions”, I have no problem with this statement.

But so what?

First, it has only been recently that anyone has had the technology and opportunity to reach billions so many.
Second, none of the legitimately great speakers in history would have had to invite themselves to give their own speeches, like he did in Berlin and Cairo.
Third, none of the other great speakers in history would have dared to speak so inspiringly to billions so many when they clearly had nothing to say.
The Art of Public Speaking is an empty bucket when its user hasn’t previously learned The Art of Persuasion, which is best used after mastering The Art of Living.
Obama had never earned the right to inspire those people, because he had no clue how to lead–or even the right to lead some of them–once he had inspired them.
Fourth, six years later, many people are just now realizing that the froth might have been good, but the beer is bad. It has become obvious that this man is ridiculously lazy, and that he will not engage in any of the work required for him to follow through on his words. Won’t work at building relationships, won’t work at legislating, won’t ever clear brush on a cattle ranch or ride a mountain bike for miles at a time. In retrospect, all he has is “just words”.

For truly inspirational speaking, try reading some of the speeches sermons of C.H. Spurgeon and Geo. Whitefield, who without aid of electronics regularly spoke to crowds upwards of 10K; whose arguments are very intellectual and persuasive; and who were channeling something a little more permanent and life-changing than Bob the Builder.

nonpartisan on December 5, 2013 at 10:43 PM

BTW, If you have been listening closely to BO’s speeches, he hasn’t really said anything inspiring since he got elected.

Prior to his election, he ended his sentences on an upward tilt, which we tend to identify as inspiring us, because our minds respond by thinking that there is still more to discuss and do.

Ever since his election in 2008, he has ended his sentences with the flat finality of a period, signifying that everything that needs to be said has been. He either got tired, got lazy, stopped faking, or more likely, decided that his election gave him the power to do what he wanted without having to inspire anyone anymore. For instance, even when his words said that he was willing to negotiate with Republicans, his tone and cadence said the discussion was moot, because the matter was settled.

If he still inspires you, maybe you were listening to his words rather than his voice. Boehner’s voice was actually more inspirational than Obama’s–simply on an emotional scale, of course, since we have already established that it takes work to keep people inspired.

rwenger43 on December 6, 2013 at 1:26 AM

Oh, yeah, one last thing about Mr Hardball:

one of my favorite radio stations runs promos for Chrissy. He starts out pontificating about his outlook on history, and I usually get the channel changed before he makes his point (such as it is).

Then I forget to change the station back.

So I guess the station that used to be my favorite really isn’t anymore, and all because of Chrissy’s self-righteous rants.

I wonder if I should bother telling the station? Or the other advertisers?
