By The Right Scoop


Chris Matthews, angry about Romney’s joke about Obama’s birth certificate, decided to ‘call out’ the RNC Chair on it this morning and it basically degraded into a one-sided shouting match where Matthews was arguing that Romney was playing the race card with the birth certificate joke and welfare reform.

But what really got Matthews going was when Priebus said that Obama was looking to Europe for guidance on his spending and health care policies. After that Matthews was so enraged he wouldn’t let Priebus answer a single question without interrupting him. Priebus finally said “I’m not going to get into a shouting match with Chris so you guys can move on.”

    Chrissy lost his mind long ago..

    I believe it was caused from lack of oxygen to his pea sized brain due to his head being so far up obummers butt for an extended period of time…

    • Grumblton

      He does have a bit of a circulation problem, doesn’t he. That does explain the “thrill up my leg” thing too! Oxygen deprived tingle.

    Poor Matty is still peed off that NObama won’t grant his most beloved lapdog a Softball interview. Oh and he played the tired old “race card” again. How predictable and boring and pathetic.

  • Army_Pilot1967

    I didn’t think I could dislike Chrissy Matthews any more than I already did before I watched that video….I was terribly wrong!!!! He’s a sleezebag…always has been one and always will be one in my opinion!!!!

    • Rightstuff1

      He is an unprofessional, big-mouthed, bigoted leftist tool. An arrogant, flatulent, fatuous, liberal bully. I do not know why conservative/reps don’t just say I am never appearing on another show or segment with Matthews because he is unprofessional. Matthews would soon find himself out of a job and wouldn’t that be nice, either that of he could just bring on his lib friends and a punchbag with a Rep rosette attached to it.

      • Army_Pilot1967

        I agree with you 100 percent, Rightstuff1. Matthews is totally unprofessional and a bully to boot!!! He runs roughshod over conservative guests and they generally let him. I wish they would get in his face just like he gets in their face.

        • JerrymB

          I don’t watch this idiot’s program, and I sort of get annoyed at all the Conservative networks and websites airing all his stupid, ignorant rantings. His commentary does not deserve the light of day.

    I have said this once and I will say again…WHY DO GOP people go on MSNBLOONEYC??? I mean who are they swaying…Independents do not WATCH MSNBLOONEYC!! I cannot understand the point. Chris Matthews has so many tingles going on he needs a NEUROLOGIST!! But for crying out loud stay off that psycho network. I mean yelling at someone? The lack of maturity makes you think you are in an insane asylum for the brainless impaired!! Romney is racist…I love the meme….when you attract 90 percent of the black voter like Obama…THAT IS RACIST!!! Talk about that Tingles!!

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_NK5INRFELITZ3TS337HINC3VMM Adam

      Simple. To bait them into tirades like this. This may play to the MoveOn and Kos crowd, but everyone else sees Fat Bastard Matthews as an unhinged partisan hack who’s calling Mitt Romney(and by proxy any Republican or conservative who agrees with him on Obama’s welfare policy) a racist. Not exactly a way to win over working class whites.

    • Sandra123456

      At best 1/2 million people watch Morning Joe out of 300+ million Americans. The show is a waste of time to appear on.

      Republicans should just let MSNBC talking heads talk to themselves.

      I bet that’s the last time you will see Tom Brokaw sitting next to Tingles. Just after the above clip ended, Mika said, “Thank you Chris, I think.”

      Pure entertainment value. I thought “Thrill up my leg”‘s comments were thoroughly entertaining. The crowd reaction to his rantings was equally as entertaining.

      • Rightstuff1

        When your only argument left in your quivver is the race card you have forfeit the argument unless you are sitting opposite a known Klansman, aka Robert Bird, but he was a Dem so he’s still ok.

        It would be a delicious irony for a guest to say, hey Chris do you check under your bed last thing at night to see if any racists are hiding under there?

        Truly is racism is all ya got to charge us with then ya got nothing.

      Yeah, Obama signs a bill into law that the majority of the country did not want. Romney signs a bill in his state into law that the majority of the people in his state did want. That’s just one difference.

  • Spartan1975

    All those liberals that defend blindly the kaiser spouting lies, distortion and insults when all facts are against them, do it because of their emotional psyche. Probably 1 third of all dems vote that way because at some point in their life they had a girlfriend, boyfriend, father, mother or family member that was liberal. The other two thirds I think vote that way because of anger in their lives and because at some point they were jealous of someone that was conservative and went to the dark side!
    Captain Shultz is one of those…no wonder why so many dems are bitter and angry!!!

  • brendawatkins

    I wish Obama would come see Chrissy so he can get that thrill back, and get over his frustrations. Liberals are too stupid to know when they make themselves look STUPID.

    • Rightstuff1

      Matthews is an egotist. Obama is an egotist. If was love at first sight for Matthews and that love has been unrequited. Love spurned, twice rejected, the lovers love met with unlove he has to show the pain of his passion. Problem for the rest of us is that it is nauseating and stomach wrenching to behold.

  • Betsey_Ross

    I am kind of liking the stance Reince Priebus has been taking with the press lately. He has been telling it like it is. I have no problem with any Republican going on any of these shows as long as they do not accept the premise of what the Lib talker is saying. Pissy Chrissy losing it is just fine with me. He seems to have anger issues. Yeah, the issue is his guy is losing. Works for me.

    That was painful. Chrissy looks deranged (I think the reality that Obama can lose has hit him and he’s losing what sanity he had left as his universe collapses) and Priebus looks like a bumbling fool. I’m tired of conservatives and republicans looking like idiots because of stammering, slow voids like Priebus. When Tingles starting throwing out names like Teddy Roosevelt and FDR you could see the panic on Reince’s face like “Oh crap. What do I say now? Since I look like a deer in the headlights and I’m losing what should be an easy-to-win argument, I’ll just end it.”
    I’d love to see Chrissy go up against Mark Levin or Allen West or Rick Santorum. People that actually know history and are quick on their feet and can throw it back at Matthews faster than he can spit out his vitriole.

    The Republicans need to look at these types of set-ups and learn from them. You don’t send a quiet polite type person up against two very good “attack dog” TV personalities who are well versed in verbalizing the progressive lies. I noted the positive response of the audience for Mathews tirade

    Also, Note Joe and Mika’s purposeful hesitations allowing Chris’s comments to hang; creating an atmosphere of Priebus looking as if he had no response to Matthews comments. We know, Priebus was being polite but his side is not coming across.

    Saul Alinsky radicals will always resort to the race card to attack a persons character. Republicans need to call them on it immediately.

Its used virtually every day.

  • bjohnson55

    So Chris, why is it racist to talk about changing the rules on welfare back to the way is was during the Clinton years? Could it be in your narrow little mind that when the word welfare is used we are talking about colored people. Chris in your mind is it only minorities on welfare? Isn’t that line of thought racist Chris? Let me answer that for you YES it is racist which makes you Chris Mathews Racist!!!

  • JD Olson

    I think they let Matthews blather on because no one felt they could get him under control. Notice Brokaw, the grand old poobah, was the only one who felt he had enough stature to be able to shut him up for 2 seconds–and then collapsed in a heap agreeing with him anyway. The awkwardness with Joe and Mika was embarrassment over Matthew’s diatribe. Neither was picking up Matthew’s line of attack. It’s like the picture of a family with a raging alcoholic no one wants to confront or admit is out of control. Priebus, to his credit, stuck to his guns even though he knew no one there would hear or support him. That whole scene there in the bar with the mindless idiots applauding and the rest of the panel tongue-tied points to the absolute craziness and denial of what’s happening on the left. Let them be in denial. Like Rush said in 2010, “They will never see it coming”.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/T6DK36H6XXJJAY2ZRY6NCQMI2I Chris

      Although Brokaw used the “you guys do it too” tactic. Really? The only insane lunatic ranting I heard was coming from “Thrill up my leg”. Did Brokaw even give a good example to prove his own point?

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/T6DK36H6XXJJAY2ZRY6NCQMI2I Chris

      Yes, Chris. Welfare and food stamps are very selective. We are trying to readjust their thinking so that they no longer identify people as groups, but as Americans. That way, everybody who needs welfare and food stamps can receive the assistance they need. Once welfare and food stamps change their thinking and cease being so selective, we will push them out into production once more.

    I saw this and Priebus didn’t come off well at all from a political perspective. When Matthews said “what’s this Euro crap? Teddy Roosevelt pushed for it, Harry Truman blah blah” Priebus sat there like he didn’t have a talking point to respond with a befuddled look on his face.

    The correct answer would have been “and the American people rejected it then Chris, just as they did when Democrats passed it.” etc…

    I’ve tried to transcribe this conversation, as best I can, I do not claim this to be an absolute, it is only what I personally grasp to be said during the conversation.

    Chris: By the way, your guy, I have to call you on this Mr Chairman, is suggesting that Obama is somehow running a negative campaign, Obama, and your guys running a positive campaign, that’s not accurate. In fact, if they both stopped all the negative, I’m not sure who would win; but they’ve both been negative. That cheap shot about I don’t have a problem with my birth certificate, was awful, and it’s an embarrassment to your party to play that card. This stuff about getting rid of the work requirement for welfare is dishonest and was postatized (scrambled), and you aren’t playing that little ethnic card there. And you can play your games and giggle about it.
    Priebus: well I
    Chris: but the fact is, your side is playing that card.
    Priebus: well I won’t
    Chris: when you start talking about work requirements, everyone knows what game you’re playing. And everybody knows what game you’re playing. It’s a race card. (audience applause) And this thing about birth, your name is Romney, you’re well-born, you went to prep-school, you gotta brag about it, this guy has an African name, he’s gotta live with it. What comes…
    Joe: di di did, did you REALLY?
    Chris: lets come further with it, who was born on 3rd base?
    Joe: wa, wa, wa, wa… wait.
    Chris: This is an absurdity here
    Priebus, Joe, others: (inaudible)
    Chris: making fun of a guys birth certificate issue, when it was never a real issue, except from the right wing.
    Joe: do you think Mitt Romney’s playing the race card?
    Chris: he said
    Joe: no, I’m asking you, do you think he’s playing the race card?
    Chris: there’s no doubt he did with the birth certificate
    Joe: no doubt?
    Chris: no doubt, why’d he bring it up? Why’d he say I have no problem with my birth certificate? What’s that suppose to say?
    Mika: cause he made an awkward joke on it
    Joe: because he misfired badly on the joke
    Chris: why would he do it?
    Joe: well I’m just asking, do you think Mitt Romney’s playing the race card?
    Chris: well knowing, yeah.
    Joe: Did he really?
    Chris: oh yeah, and I think his work requirement fits right into it.
    Joe: that’s the race card too?
    Chris: of course it is, welfare? Food Stamps? Absolutely!

    (ALL Speaking at one time)
    Priebus: (visibly disgusted) I’m happy…to respo
    Mika: Reince I’m sorry, well now let him respond to it.
    Chris: you can chuckle about it Mr. Chairman it’s a practice issue
    Priebus: I’m happy to…respo
    Chris: the fact is you know it’s going to happen.

    So what did I personally learn from the conversation?
    1. Obama’s NOT negative campaign, is actually a negative campaign; and so is Romney’s positive campaign?
    2. Obama’s NOT a birth “issue” is actually “a birth issue” WHAT?
    3. Romney’s pulled the race card regarding the work requirements memo sent out by the president, which suggested that states remove the work requirement over a certain percentage to obtain unemployment without working; but it’s really a non-issue because Federal Law strictly prohibits “anyone” (including the president) from removing the work requirement from the laws present format, even tho the president suggested it be remove in the first place; and it is absolutely a “racist” issue because Romney brought attention to it in the first place; and because it also ties to those who receive welfare and food stamps?
    4. Best yet is the entire conversation give the “implication” that only Barack Obama, by virtue of his color; and NOT his wisdom, knowledge or ability to lead the nation as it’s president, is allowed to discuss the issues of work reform, welfare or food stamps,

    Honey, now that just takes the cake!

    Hate to tell y’all this, but the African-American people of this nation are NOT the only people drawing welfare and food stamps…GET A FRIGGING CLUE!

  • MikeBri527

    Yes it’s true that both sides are running negative campaigns. However, there’s still a HUGE DIFFERENCE between the two.

    The Romney negative campaigning is mostly factual and relevant (i.e. the state of the US economy, cuts to Medicare, more people on food stamps, more people below the poverty line, gas prices, food prices, national debt, etc.)

    Barack’s negative campaigning is mostly inconsequential and irrelevant (i.e. what happened at Bain SEVEN YEARS after Romney left, a prank he played in high school, a joke about Barack’s birth certificate, etc).

  • kong1967

    What the hell is wrong with those stupid liberal morons? !!

    There are a lot more whites on welfare than there are blacks. Why do they associate welfare and foodstamps with blacks? We can’t require ID to vote because blacks are too stupid to get one. There was voter fraud last election because blacks couldn’t figure out how to use the machines.

    Is that what they think of black people? I am so sick of this bullcrap I’d like to punch that a-hole in the mouth. Hey Chris!!! Stop talking about black people like they can’t make anything of themselves and they’re too stupid to do anything without you and the Democrat party doing it for them!! It’s degrading, you stupid idiot.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/T6DK36H6XXJJAY2ZRY6NCQMI2I Chris

      It does not fit their narrative. They don’t think of people in this country as Americans. They categorize them into groups and then apply their brand of “social justice” to certain groups they feel are deserving of such.

      • kong1967

        Exactly, and they intentionally make groups of people pi**ed off at other groups. Their tactics are disgusting, immoral, and dishonest. Says a lot about the ethics, morals and integrity of Democrat politicians.

  • p m

    Matthews is a fool and a tool. Bloviating like this won’t get him his interview with Zero. An aging, ugly-know nothing doesn’t need to be interviewed by another aging, ugly know-nothing.

  • p m

    Matthews’ cohorts appeared to be nearly as taken aback as Priebus.
    Seriously, seeing this, I wonder if CM’s health is deteriorating and they know about, it but not how to handle him.

    He has diabetes and also had malaria some years ago. Very serious disease, whose complications include cerebritis, a brain infection.

    Understand this is not intended as a hit, though he richly deserves those we’ve given him here today. His manner is execrable, but even so I doubt anyone would wish even worse health on him. Just a possibility.

  • GEDouglas

    Chris hit the nail on the head when he said “I don’t get it”

  • http://twitter.com/volgeek Tim Jaggers

    Tingles lies. Romney didn’t say “I don’t have a problem with my birth certificate,” he said “No one’s asked me for my birth certificate.” It was a statement of fact. Romney’s statement in no rational way can be interpreted as saying Obama wasn’t born in the US. Only a racist would see criticism about Obama removing work requirements from welfare reform as playing the race card.

    Obama IS a foreigner. His formative years were spent in foreign schools. He admitted in one of his “biographies” that his mother taught him to not see America as a special place. For nearly 20 years he let his publisher describe him as being born in Kenya.

    He thinks that because both Roosevelts and Truman pushed for the gov’t to take over the medical industry that it makes it a good thing? They were all progressives! That alone proves it is a policy that any sane person would run screaming from.

    Chrissy has clearly become unhinged. Anything negative said about Obama becomes the product of racism. The problem for him is that he can see his beloved Obama losing and it scares him so much that the only thing he’s feeling in his leg is a warmth resulting from the loss of control of his bladder.

    • http://twitter.com/ozziecastillo Stewie

      I would also argue that the entirety of the progressive influence is foreign- Whether it comes from Russia or Europe at any given point in history, academics have long spoken of the “efficiencies” of an all powerful central government.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/T6DK36H6XXJJAY2ZRY6NCQMI2I Chris

      I wonder if Mitt Romney should have just used a “Triumph the Insult Comic Dog” hand puppet and used a foreign accent while he told his joke, so as not to confuse the leftards out there in looney land.

  • layne22

    It frustrates me that even Repubs won’t respond with “he said it because President Obama’s own literary agent printed that he was born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii”.

    Man, I thought Chris was going to pop a blood vessel!

  • rich wojcik

    Matthews said:
    …………….if a black, or partially black guy wants to be a PRESIDENT, ALL HE NEEDS IS TO ASK HIS MAMA TO IRON HIS PANTS.
    ………………………………..
    THAT’S ALL- ACCORDING TO that imbecile. He’s got a crease on his logic, poor dolt.

  • tshtsh

    So, spittle, calls other people racist because spittle believes only black people are on food stamps and welfare?

    • reason1984

      Of the total food stamp recipients, 49% are White, 26% are Black, and 20% are Hispanic (extrapolated from census questionnaires). According to the Department of Agriculture 36% are White, 22% are Black, and 10% are Hispanic. The total population receiving food stamps is in the 46-47 million range.

      Chris Matthews rarely lets facts get in the way of his personal agenda and narrative. His daily goal appears to be to out race shill his colleague, Al not so Sharpton. MSNBC is in a s******, and they know it.

  • Reckoner_3

    This is good for the GOP headquarters. I hope Rence Priebus has a long memory. Getting pounced on by an Obama surrogate, lol….

    Let’s get this president ousted, then Chris can say America is racist “again” for voting Obama out for the “white guy”

    And Why the heck are these white bozos, (Chrissy Matthews being uber-white)so irate? they’re the racist ones because all they think about is Obama’s skin color when he’s being criticized!

    – Chris Matthews , is educated beyond his intelligence, always with these lefty talking points, I remember universities liberal arts crap, teach this in sociology

    “completely other” I notice that black liberals use this term ALL the time, on the MSNBC shows, ……terminology so ridiculous, liberalism is a mental disorder. Sociology class information should be dropped the minute you earn the college credit. But these idiots like t he one last week using the N word to get people thinking race failed…

    I guess now they have to go with “foreignization” to play the race card now, and to say Obama looks to the European model, is racist?? lol desperate

    Chris Matthews was pissed off the day he was born and the only happy day he has ever had is the day Blowbama was elected. And that’s it. But, compared to what he’s going to be the day after the election, he’s happy now.

    Chris Matthews should be forced to publicly apologize to Reince Preibus for not only his show of despicable unprofessional-ism and gross conduct but also his disgusting personal attack and insult of the RNC chairman on *national tv*. And the hosts were completely USELESS at controlling his senial tirade. However, I admire Mr Priebus for holding back on Chris “Obama wouldn’t come on my show but I’d still lick his shoes” Matthews, because I know Mr Priebus has a sharp tongue. Props to you, sir.
