Hilarious: Chris Matthews calls Obama “the strong silent type”

by editor on May 5, 2011

What are the putting in the water over at MSNBC? Whatever it is, it’s some powerful stuff.

For example, in this video clip Matthews strangely compares Barack Obama to movie cowboys. Make believe movie cowboys. The kind that Democrats used to accuse Bush of being like.

He seques from that into comparing Obama to old Hollywood actor Gary Cooper, a man of not just few words, but one word – “Yup.”

Matthews must have been watching a different President Obama than we’ve been watching for the last two and a half years. This is a guy who’s never met a camera he doesn’t love and will always use ten words when one would suffice.

Oh, by the way, Chris, we didn’t capture Osama, we killed him. Dead.

But as such a good Irish Catholic boy, imagine how conflicted Chris must be right now…

Well he better get real because he is looking ridiculous everytime he speaks about his love of Obama on the air.

if you listen real close every time chrissy talks of obama you can hear in the background a certain part of his anatomy puckering and wisfully mumuring “obama” “obama” “obama”….yes,,,it wants him so bad it is mutating into a speaking orifice and beckoning him

every time i see chrissy now, i just cannot get that scene from the movie grease out of my mind. i picture chrissy with a ponytail and in a poodle skirt singing “hopelessly devoted”with a bubble picture of obama just above him

Excuse me? Did he miss the walkabout at Ground Zero? The arrogant speeches after the event?

This boy is gay and probably been all of his life and Obama just brought it out and he cannot hide it any longer.

If BO is the strong, silent type, I guess that makes Matthews the flaccid, obnoxious type.

Just Chrissy having another Jungle Fever Fantasy, tingle, tingle.

Matthews’ unrequited love for Obama is becoming a bit too obvious and more than tacky. Chris probably has a framed photograph of Obama next to his bed…the first thing he sees in the morning and the last thing he sees at night.

…and there’s that tingle.

Jesus chris, just blow the man already and get it over with! Seriously, if ever in history there was an instance of an overt gay love of another man that no one mentioned, it is now. Matthews needs to meet barry at the Manhole on Broadway in Chicago and just go do the crime and get it over with. Maybe then, he would be sated in such a way as to stop drooling about the man he would love to have sex with!

Chrissy is still disappointed after his encounter with Jesse Jackson.

KimmyQueen

Jesse Jackson may have been a little too intimidating for Chris. He seems to prefer a more comforting touch.

perlcat

Maybe Jesse made him an offer he couldn’t understand.

All I know is that Chris is hunkering from some soul food and he better get his fix or else he will get desperate.

Matthews feelin’ a tingle down his leg again…. maybe he better consider upgrading from the bargain brand adult diaper before he starts sending Obumbler Valentine’s day cards.

Jeez, I just watched the video. Hard listening to that grateing voice, sissor lips working so fast and the spittle flying everywhere. Camera man probably has a hard time adjusting the contrast on that pasty complection.

He’s just comparing him to his full time sweet heart ed schultz.

When Rachel Madcow talked about other news hosts “coming out” – It wasn’t Anderson Cooper she meant…it probably was CM…this fawning goes so far beyond man-crush its putrifying

What’s that you’re yelling, Chris Matthews? I can’t hear you over that “strong, silent guy” who keeps blathering about all things “I/My/Me.”

danybhoy

The next time Obama is strong & silent will be the 1st time.

As for Matthews, he’s weak & loud. But that still beats Special Ed, who is to quote Dean Wormer from “Animal House”, “Fat, drunk, & stupid is no way to go through life”.

WHY IS THIS WEBSITE NAMED IHATETHEMEDIA.COM WHEN IT SHOULD BE NAMED IHATETHELEFTLEANINGMEDIA.COM… I doesnt make sense if you hate the media at least report what both sides of the spectrum is doing wrong..not just one side of the media.. Its very confusing and very stupid.

Because every person here has uttered, nay, SCREAMED ” I hate the Media” at one point or another.

caperthy, is that all you’re going to post here? You’ve already posted that same lame comment elsewhere today. If you don’t have enough imagination to be at least a tiny bit original with all of your comments, then why are you even here? Come back when you have something new to say.

The definition of insanity? Posting the same drivel again and again, expecting a different result? No, Caperthy, your post doesn’t sway our opinion. Try something new.

A 90% correct algorithm with this admini..er regime is to assume that everything it or it’s propaganda wing says is 180 from reality and truth.

For the past 4 years, I have relied on the foreign press for news. It is looking alot like the USSR circa 1960 here in the USA in the age of the Chicago Jesus.

The only thing Obama has been silent about is actually solving the problems instead of making them worse.

He is sounding more and more like a romance novelist.

“He is sounding more and more like a romance novelist.”

That reminds me of the slang for romance novels (because of their covers) and fits Chrissy to a ‘T”….’Bodice Rippers’.

Caption reads “Let Me Finish”

I think he may have under his desk.

KimmyQueen

Exactly. That whole thing is alittle too gross and double entendrish for me.

It’s always been my impression that Matthews would love some “alone time” with Barry in the Presidential limo. Maybe they could invite Larry Sinclair to join them for a threesome.

The only “cowboy” I can imagine in relation to Obama is the scene from “Blazing Saddles” where they are all eating beans around the campfire. I can just imagine that is what an Obama cabinet meeting looks like. The guy with smoke coming from his hat reminds me of what Obama would look like after finding out he slipped again in the polls. Thank you Mel Brooks!

The strong silent type BHO warming up for a presser:
