Oh yeah, it's in the Constitution to delay the President interrupting you & inform him that will should wait to speak his views.
Where Is Call For Jihad Against Chris Matthews Sharia Slander?
Our President, Barack Hussein Obama, spoke out vigorously against any "slander" of the man Mr Obama invariably refers to as "The Prophet" Mohammed.
We have been lectured by Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton that any speech offensive to Muslims will not be tolerated and that First Amendment notions must give way to the sensitivities and political correctness of multiculturalism.
Where are the cries from the White House against the "Islamophobia" of Chris Matthews?
Where is Congressman Keith Ellison? Congressman Ellison refused to swear his oath of office on a Bible and did so on a Koran. Is Mr Ellison outraged by the offensive manner in which liberals refer to the law of his Koran?
In nationally broadcast remarks Democratic commentator Matthews disparaged the Romney/Ryan position (and that of the Roman Catholic Church/Evangelical Christians) as "sharia.
This was intended as an insult.
The Left is denigrating Islam and Islamic law- are they not?
The Left argues that being Pro Life is absurd and "intolerant" and in that context refersto those who oppose abortion and Planned Parenthood as engaging in "Sharia"
This is not a rare instance. Michael Brown reports
"In comments made before the presidential debate this past Tuesday, Chris Matthews claimed that Gov. Romney’s position on abortion was “almost like Sharia,” stating, “You’re saying to the country, we’re going to operate under a religious theory, under a religious belief.” In doing so, Matthews repeated the common leftwing libel that conservative moral principles with a basis in religious beliefs are equivalent to radical Islam.
In May, Rev. Billy Graham took out full page ads in North Carolina newspapers stating in part, “The Bible is clear — God’s definition of marriage is between a man and a woman. I want to urge my fellow North Carolinians to vote FOR the marriage amendment.”
Gay activist Wayne Besen responded by asking, “Do we now make our civil laws based upon Christian Sharia?”
So anyone who fails to heartily endorse the radical homosexuals is a Taliban?
".. if you argue that a baby in the womb, upon conception, is entitled to personhood status, you are espousing a position “almost like Sharia,” which Matthews sums up by exclaiming, “This is extremism!” Indeed, for Matthews, in the early stages of pregnancy, we are certainly not dealing with a baby in the womb, let alone “a fetus,” but “rather an egg that had just been fertilized, right after sex, if you will.”
So, the high regard for life and the protection of the innocent that fuels the Republican platform on abortion is nothing more than Sharia-like extremism.."
Please note Chris Matthews and the homosexuals use "sharia" as indicia of something palpably awful.
Where are the cries of outrage from Obama?
I think it will be back to Hawaii, not Chicago... I suspect he couldn't face his old buds if he didn't get a second or third term.
It's a DEBATE, stupid! He is a CANDIDATE, running for re-election. And, when you interrupt, you get schooled on it. Period!
Chris Matthews could be the single biggest asset to the Romney campaign? Just let him keeping talking, and watch the 'absurdity' manifest itself...and all the other media lemmings diligently falling in line...
Matthews regurgitates whatever talking points Team Obama dictates. The FCC should require BSNBC to post a disclaimer before, during, and after every Matthew’s appearance that states: “Chris Matthews is a card carrying member of the Obama reelection campaign. President Obama approves his message.”
In a time of deceit telling the truth is a revolutionary act. ― George Orwell
FYI, there was nothing impolite with that comment by Romney. Obama was impolite by trying to interrupt him there, as he did all night. What Romney said was factually correct. "You'll get your chance." And Obama did get his chance when it was his turn.
Obama and Matthews think Obama should be able to do anything he wants because he's the President. (Not for long.) They think the president is a king--or even our father (liberals view the government as taking care of us). It's the same ideology that Obama expressed when he said "I won" to Congressional Republicans and it's the same ideology he expresses whenever he does anything he wants, tramples on the American people, and ignores the decorum of civilized life.
When you worship at the altar of Obama then this is what you get.
If you believe Teh Won is above everything, including the law, then you get this.
I remember during the days of Watergate when the press was inundating us in print and on the airwaves with, "No one is above the law!" and "No President is above the law!"
Chrissy.......you need to retire. You've lost it if you believe what you just said. You need rest, and lots of meds, to help you. Before the election, seek help. You might just be out on the ledge come Nov. 7th, if you don't seek help - now. ;)
Where does this Enemy of the State, Chris Mathews, get his Constitution from Red China, North Korea?
It always gives Matthews "a thrill up his leg" to speak in his moronic rhetoric. He should be banned from the networks.
Mathews, ie; all liberal's attempted use of the US Constitution, only when they deem it politically convenient, is truly antithetical- ie; the epitome of their own hypocrisy.
These liberal weenies are terrified that if little 0 loses, their life won't be worth living.
Frankly, I find no redeeming value in Chrissy sissy Mathews. I don't know what he's on, pills, booze, whatever...he needs to seek counseling. He's about to crack.
Yeah Chrissy it's right there in one of those Arteeeecals or maybe one of the Ammmmeeenndmeents...no one was must ever tell the prezzy..you'll get your turn in a minute. All Constitutional scholars know that!
Yes, Azjimbo, and probably all 5 agreed with "Chrissie"....
Where does this kind of stupid come from?
Where all Chrissie's material comes from...straight out of his, ahem, butt.
He's a loon, and the sad thing is, he's so highly regarded by the elite MSM he has his own show......I've always wondered how he feels being a "peer" of Al Sharpton....has to make his mama weep...
I like the way the clip cuts off him off at "and secondly...". When you say something that dumb you don't get a "secondly".
Yes Chrissy Tingles, lets not have to follow the rules like average human beings. After all, Barry is "special" and should run everything, including the debate. Make mean old Mitt sit down and play nice with the master.
I think we should cut Mr. Matthews a little slack, here.
It's a point in his favor that he can finally bring himself to admit that the Constitution exists.
Besides, head that big, when it explodes, someone could get hurt.
Matthews probably thinks that if Romney were the gentleman people say he is, he would bow out of the Presidential race and stop embarrassing the President, by asking him questions.
It's not stupidity...Its desperation.
The behaviour of Matthews and Biden (see other Right Scoop articles), tells us that this race is closer than the Mainstream Media wants to admit.
You'll find when more of the population sides with Romney; the more desperate the Democrats and their media minions will get...And the more erratic and underhanded they'll behave. Integrity and character is NOT a virtue of the Left. So they will continue to try anything in order to win. (The above video is such a case).
Doesn't it remind you of Terminator 2? Most notably, the end scene with the T-1000 falling into a vat of molten steel. It behaves wildly before it melts and is ultimately destroyed.
Its the same here. Democrats know the tide is turning against them. Recent polls are the barometer to what is going on. America is waking up to the fact that to restore the economy, the nation needs a person with business experience. The type of person who knows how to turn things around. Real leadership with a plan that is based on the current real world situation.
This is what Obama does not offer. You can see it in the Presidential Debates. When asked a question, he rambles on with irrelevance as he throws his charisma around. Just ranting on with radical-Left clichéd material that he has been indoctrinated all his life...It makes him more disconnected with the population. He doesn't see what's happening on the front-line of unemployment. People need the security of a full time job...This is where Romney has the advantage.
All the Conservative/Libertarians have to do is maintain the course of seeing what real Americans are going through and planning the future based on improving it and turning the situation around when its going in the wrong direction. The Left can't do anything helpful for the nation because they really don't have anything but ideals...Ideals that fail spectacularly when implemented in reality as it wants to change the system to some utopia, instead of improving it. See the recent failing of Green energy companies that Obama has subsidized. (The environment is a science/engineering problem. Green technology needs to match conventional energy in both output capacity and economics in order to be a real alternative. Otherwise, its just a whole lot of wasted money. The Left does NOT understand this fact. It only sees an ideal world and tries to change the real one to match it.)
The truth doesn't just set one free. It also destroys those who have built their career, fortune, etc based on dishonesty and manipulation. In the USA's case, it will also restore the nation as intended by its Forefathers. The hard part is maintaining it by promoting responsibility and accountability of one's self. It really is the endless battle between good and evil. Good will always win but it takes more effort, patience, persistence, and the ability to absorb punishment/pain. I guess that's why people turn to God and religion. For those trying times. (I'm not religious, but I do understand why the Left want to destroy religion. Religion brings strong values that the Left cannot defeat. Its why they constantly mock it.)
This Election is more than two suits trying to get your vote. Its more than deciding the future of the nation. Its actually about deciding the fate of the Western world. Americans need to see that Europe is pretty much done. (France elected a Socialist and he has pushed away the rich by taxing them. They are now fleeing or adjusting themselves to avoid the high taxes). It will have done nothing to increase the tax revenue the French Govt needs.
Europe has this current belief of "Soft Socialism". ie: You can still have a free-market while having ever growing entitlement programs. It fails because eventually the takers will outnumber the makers...You just can't walk on two roads at the same time and expect progress or prosperity!
Just like WWII and Cold War, America is the last vestige of liberty...
Unlike WWII, this war does not involve real weapons and many lives spent. Where you folks threw manpower and numbers to win over the Axis powers.
Unlike the Cold War, it isn't about economics...Where you folks won with economic prosperity over Communism. (They spent themselves into the ground).
This war is about culture and its within! Its Conservatism/Libertarianism vs Left-Progressivism. Small Govt vs Big Govt. Self responsibility vs Entitlement programs. Private business vs Govt-backed business.
If you guys fall, the rest of us will eventually fall with you. That's how important this Election really is. Ignoring people like Chris Matthews and promoting/voting Romney is the first step. There is a long way to go in restoring the USA to its glory. You folks better roll up your sleeves...This is going to be a long fight.
Very well said and unlike politicians getting side tracked, you stayed on point. There are regulars on TRS that not only agree with you, but feel the same way. Thanks for the time you spent writing your viewpoint and sharing it here.
aussie, I agree with your points. They do seem to be getting a little edgy, don't they?
By the way, you write in an excellent manner.
"Matthews can’t be this stupid. He can’t be."
I'm sorry to be the one to tell you this, but....yes he is that stupid.
I don't know, Brian Williams took the President Bush to task in New Orleans after Katrina - and that wasn't a debate. What in the Constitution - anywhere - states that the president can't be interrupted? Hmmm...Bill of Rights...nope. Various amendments? No where. Make a stupid statement - I'm sorry - this IS Chris Matthews after all so he has a continual stream of stupid comments coming out of his mouth. Is MSNBC the propaganda arm of the Obama Administration?
Chrissy's just upset that Romney was mean to his pretend boyfriend. Could get real ugly election night.
Tingles must believe in his narrow little mind that obama is a King and can't be told to wait his turn. Wrong, Tingles, he's the president and should follow the debate rules, okay? What did you have for dinner before the debate???????
His alcoholism has destroyed his brain cells. I wouldn't be surprised if he has full blown dementia in the near future.
Love your commentary on this RS. lol....maybe Matthew's is drinking the same stuff Biden is. Since when do liberals care about the Constitution?
When is MSNBC going to put this bumbling idiot out of a job. He is primarily the one (maybe along with his brother Rachel Maddow) that has cost them millions of viewers. He and Joe Biden have stayed boozed up, drugged out, and stoned for the last 4 years.
If this had been Barack Obama telling George W Bush "you'll get your chance", Chris would be in his glory.
Matthew's doesn't seem to get it that the debate stage is the one arena where the President and the challenger are on equal footing.
And the Constitution has zero to do with it.
