It seems Chris "I get a tingle up my leg" Matthews can't defend his man crush with facts these days so he has to try playing the race card.... again.
Former Vice President Dick Cheney said President Obama lied about people being able to keep their health care plans - a fact which has become very clear in the last couple of weeks.
“We look at the mess that has been created out of Obamacare by the president having said, ‘You can keep your policy if you like it, you know, guaranteed, period.’ It turns out that was a lie. And he repeated it over and over and over again,” Cheney said.
That's pretty straight forward. The President did lie about it. Then, after three full years of telling people they could keep their plans, "Period", the President lied again by saying “what we said was” you can keep your health care plan “if it hasn’t changed since the law’s passed.” Not only was that statement untrue but it shows how stupid the President believes American people to be. Nowhere in Cheney's criticism of the President is there a hint of racial overtones. Unless you're Chris Matthews.
Apparently hearing this truth about his man crush was just too much for the MSNBC loud mouth. On his show "Hardball" (which could easily be re-named "Hard Head") Matthews reacted in his usual fashion.
“Is this, calling the president a liar, the new language of American politics? Or is it a language specially treated for the country’s first African-American president?” Matthews asked viewers.. all twelve of them.
Since Matthews has no defense for Obama's lies he plays the race card - something he does on a regular basis. If, God forbid, Hillary Clinton replaces Barack Obama as President in 2017, Matthews undoubtedly will (if he still has a show, that is) change his favorite rhetoric from "they don't like the President because he's black" to "they don't like the President because she's female." Never will he admit people don't like the Democrat President(s) because their policies suck.
It must be difficult being Chris Matthews - watching your idle make a fool of himself and watching your ratings dive on a regular basis. Maybe Matthews should talk to the President about a public relations job. He could continue spreading his hateful "Obama does no wrong and if you disagree you're a racist" garbage and maybe get to spend more time with the object of his affection. Who knows? He might get a Medal of Freedom like that other person who has been playing the race card on a regular basis recently....?
