Your “Chris Matthews is a moron” moment of the week

by editor on July 17, 2011

Last week we shared a video clip of President Obama just plain making up crap about the history of the Transcontinental Railroad. Chris must have seen this clip and said to himself, “Hey, this job’s a lot easier if you can just make up history to fit your agenda.” So that’s what he did.

In this clip Matthews says that rich people committed suicide during the Depression because they were ashamed of “what they did.”

Chris, buddy, it was raining stockbrokers on Wall Street because they’d lost everything, not because they felt bad about other people losing everything.

But if that’s the story you want to believe, we’re pretty sure there won’t be any convincing you otherwise. After all, you work for MSNBC so there’s no real incentive to tell the truth.

I wish I could claim it, but someone else said it perfectly:
“Chris Matthews is a moron wrapped in an idiot.”

Exactly.

Editor, I have to ask.
How many people do you have combing through all the stupid shit this moron says every week?
How much time is devoted to deciding which jackass moment rises to the level of the stupidest thing he said each week?
I don’t envy you this task, it must drive you crazy!

It’s easy. They just go to DailyKos and see what they write up as the most brilliant statements of the day, and use them to show us what an idiot he is.

Who is this Chris Matthews and why does he want to jump out a window?

Well, good, today most of the “rich” people support the Dummocrats and Obama; I would consider defenestrating myself if I helped put that bum in office, too.

I am always distracted when I see Reich on tv. Is it just me or does he look like a wino someone drug in and put a suit on for a quick interview.

“Chris Matthews is a moron” – that seems a bit redundant.

What in the hell has Mathews been smoking lately? He is however a liberal and you cnat let the truth or history get in the way of what you want to spout off about. It’s not difficult to do the research anymore. A couple of words, a few mouse clicks, then you read away. Without a doubt Chis must have been using the Wikapedia site for all of his information.

What a clown. He needs to just give it up and face reality that barry is one and done and he can then go back to bashing whom ever is in the White House as a conservative.

Once again, deepthinker, please separate your use of the word liberal with your use of the word progressive. Chris Matthews may not be either, but he is a progressive tool, and there is an immense difference. It stems from their ideologies, as do conservative and libertarians. True liberals have much in common with true conservatives. Progressives have a different set of tenets, none of which are honestly comparative with or compatible with either liberal or conservative tenets. So, please, stop using the words like they are similar. Partisan politics get us nowhere. Identifying the true enemies to the state do. If liberals ever wake up from this power-induced coma, you will find them as much an ally, (if not more), then the RINO’s that currently inhabit offices. Or maybe, honestly, sadly, we are just too far gone to rely on knights in shining armor?

DB, conservatives are the only true liberal thinkers, the rest are just common tools.

Dear sirs and the occasional madame–
We liberals don’t need you conservatives to tell us who did what to whom for what reason in the name of “history.”
Facts. Meaning. Motivation. How quaint.
History, for us liberal scholars, is more akin to art than science. Like an interpretive dance, or childhood sidewalk chalk drawings, we determine the meaning of actions to promote a collective vision. If Chris Matthews said rich people jumped out of a window because of their shared guilt, then so be it. As long as it reinforces the crisp ideological blades of our class warfare ideology, then the ends justifies the means.
I once jumped out of a window as a student in an Ivy League school, but it was due to a bitter glass of Chardonnay.

Yours,
R. Coddington Fahrnsworth, super genius, amateur historian, erotic dance enthusiast

Coddie, I was there my friend. That hogwash about you jumping out of a window, wow, you were so high at the time I’m amaszed that you even remember. You did jump out of a window but it was a first floor window in the girls’ dormitory and it wasn’t the Chardonnay, it was the ‘shrooms’ you ingested before you went to that erotic dancers’ toga party! You really don’t remember, do you?!?

For those of you not raised in the 60s, this is a good learning experience. Coddy is having an LSD flashback.

He’s such a valuable teaching tool sometimes.

If there comes a time when tingles decides to give himself concrete poisoning by taking a leap from a high place, someone please give me a heads up. I want to be there for that.

I wonder if Matthews will ever contemplate jumping out a window, not that he could ever feel shame about anything.

Alan

Yeah, the entire staff of MSNBC would be jumping out of windows, if they had any shame at all.

He’s a “green” pundit. He’s trying to recycle Communism.

Hey Chris Matthews, do you ever look at your own salary, realize it is larger then the CEO of the New York Stock Exchange’s salary, and go, “Hey, I should really get paid less.” Please do. Please get off your high horse, until you’re willing to trim your 5.5 million dollar a year anchor salary.

Is there anything more tragic then an older guy desperately trying to look hip and cool? Look at Reich’s “3 day too cool to shave ” face. That works fine when your an anorexic fashion model but on an old fat guy its just embarrassing.

A “Chris Matthews is a Moron” moment? With him, it has seemingly become “moment” = “always.”

Hey Chris – just in case your forgot – all that stimulus money worked wonders!
Get a brain!!

Where does he get this crap? Who does his show prep? Chrissy “Prissy” Matthews seems to think that just about everybody took a nose dive out of the executive breakrooms of business highrises because they were ashamed of what they’d done to the little guy…wha? First of all there weren’t that many jumpers, (even back then the MSM was lying about the facts) and secondly, shame had little to do with their decisions to jump (there were plenty of other reasons for those poor schlubs to jump besides shame) and if shame was involved, it wasn’t because they’d ruined the fortunes of anyone else, it was more likely they’d realized all the stupid mistakes they’d made that got them to that point)! Besides, having Robert Reichhhhhhhhh as a guest was just piling on to the “blind leading the blind” bandwagon! Two lying a**wipes does not a true story make!

Wow! They musta been there. How old are these guys?

So CM thinks he knows what they felt. Shame he says. He could be right in some cases. And it’s not wrong to say that there were greedy speculators on WS back then, (many of whom were jumpers) just as there are today. But to generalize and group all CEO’s and other big business owners into that group of speculators is, IMO, inaccurate and shameful. Unseemly salaries? What about the salaries that these two political junkies pull down. Bet their not feeling shame over that! What hypocritical asshats!

When will Tingles shame cause his self defenestration? Would that ‘Thissss is CNN’ broadcasts it!

Matthews is 1 of the big a-holes in the media today. His mouth is hours ahead of his brain when he speaks, & he believes that the fact he has a cablemnews show that people give a damn what he thinks. Judging by his ratings being in the basement for over a decade, his continued employment at NBC-ComCast is very charitable.

dany…I cannot disagree with anything you say except for one thing. Matthews hasn’t got a brain.

He does, but it has been damaged by alcohol use.
