UGH! Chris Matthews: “I’m so glad we had that storm last week”

During a short statement where Matthews was praising Obama for getting reelected after all that he’s been through or something, Chris Matthews said that he’s thankful for the hurricane last week because of the political opening it gave Obama:

You can’t have it both ways Chrissy. The hurricane you say politically helped your president win reelection also killed well over 100 people and wrought destruction that has left many homeless and without food and water. That’s the storm you are thankful for?

Yeah, as long as your guy wins reelection, you don’t seem to care about the lives that were taken or ruined along the way.

    108 people died in the storm! What a sick lunatic.

    • historybelle

      Imagine if a Republican said what he did!! They would be calling for blood.

      • Rightstuff1

        Oh but the libs care about people. They “feel” for them. They are the party of empathy and sympathy.

      • aposematic

        Fired already, no doubt.

  • We need to start holding the media to account. We should be hammering his network to fire him for this comment.

  • denbren52

    I can’t say I’d be unhappy if he became a victim of the next big storm. DOUCHE

    • denbren52

      And by victim I mean casualty!

  • dontdrinkthecoolaid

    Now Global Warming is a good thing….bring on the Global Warming!!

  • Typical lefty attitude. The end justifies the means, even if the means is a killer storm, which under a (R) would have been the end of his campaign.


    • poljunkie

      One of the most upsetting parts of this election, aside from all the worry, despair about our Country is not getting to see Chrissy melt down.

      Instead I had my own hissy fit.

      • believe me pol, I feel the same way. I had mine too, but now I’m done. And when this duck is done, she’s mad.

    • aposematic

      I appologize, I had not read your comment before posting mine…we had same thoughts.

  • Gio54

    His not alone, Im pretty sure chripy cream from jersey feels the same way as he does.

  • Constitution Lover(underconsta

    He’s so disgusting.

  • poljunkie

    AS I have stated 3 or four times now, I will never forgive Chris Christie for providing Obama with photo ops. I will do everything I can to make sure he doesnt make it past the primaries if he should decide to run.
    Obama didnt do anything but show up tour, hug Christie, smile for the camera and then jet to Las Vegas. Oh yeah he also had Christie meet and greet Bruce the poser Springstein , where Chrisie broke down in tears.

    People slamming Romney today—-He’s a respectful family man, and I honestly dont think he would run our Country down–into the ditch. His plan for us would have been an improvement… Sure he’s not conservative, and he is far from perfect- but Obama is still a miserable failure and his policies go against every one of my beliefs and values.

    • Orangeone

      Call me cynical but frankly NJ and NY put their faith in Barky Boy and he left them to drown, starve and freeze to death. They voted for his re-election anyway. Time to stop donating and let them fend for themselves.

    • My husband is there currently helping wiht relief efforts. If you only knew how right you are.

      Thanks poljunkie. I don’t feel so alone now.

  • E. Lee Zimmerman

    Wow. I hope his audience in New York and New Jersey are listening, assuming they have power.

    • theresaaa

      I hope everyone’s listening.

      I don’t understand why this guy is still on the air , or his network for that matter .

      • E. Lee Zimmerman

        Amen, girl. From what I can recall (as to why/how he’s still on the air), I thought I’d heard or read somewheres that he cleverly had a clause put into his MSNBC contract that required NBC to hire him directly to the main network (NBC) IF they cancelled his MSNBC gig. Now, I could be wrong on the particulars, but I thought I’d read or heard that somewheres.

        But, I agree: I hope everyone on our side of the aisle is hearing the hate still being spewed DESPITE their winning the election. It shows how classless these charlatans are, and it underscores why I believe we need to have all of them deposed.

        John Cusack announces that he’s working on bringing his version of a Rush Limbaugh film to the cinemas? I want to know where the folks are on our side who are working on bringing a Chris Matthews film to the screener … except that DUMB & DUMBER was already made awhile back.

        • theresaaa

          Oh , I see they’d rather keep that nut at their “sister station” than at their flag ship station . If I were in charge I’d have him proof reading the phone book in the broom closet of the basement .

          Yeah I heard About Cucack’s movie . You know how much “research” will go into that. I hope Rush sues the pants off him and anyone involved in it.

          Hey ! Those guys in Dumb and Dumber were JUST dumb , Matthews is way past Dumb .

  • CO2isGood

    Amoral pig!

  • sDee

    We keep fuming at these despicable liars but ….

    Has the Fifth Estate ever picked one as a target, froze it, personalized it, and polarized it?

  • GreenBeretWay

    This jackazz is a cretin.

  • dk_in_tn

    Matthew is mentally ill–he suffers from Obama derangement syndrome.

    • Galatiansch2vs20

      I think he is mentally ill and perhaps should be having his broadcasts limited to padded cell walls. He needs the Saviour!

  • It is time to turn off the talking heads at MSNBC. Don’t even repost them. They have no audience other than a handful of morons. What they say is unimportant. Let them talk to themselves.

  • Sober_Thinking

    This Godless twit…

    Funny how Obama’s minions all think like Obama… they don’t care who dies or how many, as long as Obama is re-elected. Welcome to the Dark Ages of America.

  • theresaaa

    “Yeah, as long as your guy wins reelection, you don’t seem to care about the lives that were taken or ruined along the way. ”

    No more than Obama , anyway .

  • He supports a man who is determined to destroy America, why should a few people getting an early taste of what the rest of us are facing bother him?

  • jrt1031

    wow…. admitting that you didnt have a chance before a storm and more lies is just over the top. how do these people sleep at night?

    • toongoon

      Hanging upside down.

  • That’s what liberals have in their DNA, winning at any cost, even if it means people dying. And they wonder why we hate them so. Well, Chris, don’t get too happy. The election was almost 50/50. So half of the United States thinks you’re a jerk. I hope you can live with that, Chris.

  • Conservative_Hippie

    Of all the asinine things he has said, this up there at the top – wow!

  • proudhispanicconservative
  • Dukehoopsfan

    What a sad, despicable excuse for a man. He is beyond contempt. I know a couple of guys in Jersey who would love to “debate” his views.

  • ‘Sandy’ gave Chrissy a tingle up his leg.

  • sjmom

    People are without homes, food and water and Chris is glad. May God forgive him.

  • Crikey. Look at the top of GatewayPundit now.

  • jrt1031

    wow…. admitting that you didnt have a chance before a storm and more lies is just over the top. how do these people sleep at night?


    …G-D of Abraham , what is your plan in having President Barack HUSSEIN Obama re elected as the Commander in Chief of the U.S.A.. I sure hope it isn’t to put Vice President Joseph Biden in the Oval Office after the impeachment of this sitting President for his LIES about BENGHAZI or the FAST AND FURIOUS DEBACLE .”

    • TitaniumEagle

      I hate to say this — but I’d rather have Biden (the unintelligent career politician) in office than the calculating, evil man who just won re-election.

  • TitaniumEagle

    I’m so ****ing tired of the bullshit that comes from this man and the rest of the media. Unbelievable. “I’m glad 107 people died because it helped a Marxist get re-elected.”

    What is happening to this country? I’m finding it hard to shake off the sadness from last night. Has America really become a place where socialists can go on TV and talk about death of American citizens being good politically with no repercussions?

    Augh. I want to move to Texas, where at least there’s some sanity.

    • TxGold

      You answered your on question. MARXIST! Come on down, just don’t wind up in Austin or Houston!!


      …TitaniumEagle move up here to Canada since you have Obama care now and if you do not purchase a U.S. Government approved health plan in which you will be fined or imprisoned . At least up here the great white NORTH you are not penalized with the threat of being fined or imprisoned for not purchasing such plans but also we pay a much lower tax rate than you will be paying come January 2013 . Think about it also plenty of work up here if one wants to work or open up a business where you are REWARDED GENEROUSLY for your SWEAT and LABOUR . So come up here my freind we are also BLESSED because our Conservative Government are STAUNCH supporters of the State of ISRAEL . Bring your family and friends for there is plenty of room for all LIBERTY LOVING PATRIOTS .”

  • John Powell

    MSNBC should be ashamed of having one of its commentators making such a statement. Over a hundred dead — not a reason for joy!

    • TitaniumEagle

      It’s a reason for joy if it results in The One, the Dear Leader, getting re-elected. UGH.

  • proudhispanicconservative

    Mark levin is killing it and making our point so clearly.

  • mike payton

    I’m sure the dead, homeless and starving are happy about it too, Tingles.

  • TConservative

    Obama’s glad too.


    …(one more thing AMERICA , before your Government shuts down this site) ,America

    just JOHN GALT , OBAMA

    P.S. …time for bed , Good Night .”

  • 911Infidel

    May a tree fall during the next storm and hit your house while you’re in it. See how you like it jacka$$.

    • proudhispanicconservative

      Who was that directed too infidel?

      • 911Infidel

        Well lets see, the thread is about Chris Mathews and his storm comment. Seems rather obvious. Unless you’re just being sarcastic. By the way “too” is adverb meaning also. You should have used the preposition “to”. To, two and too are Homophones which are words that sound the same but have different spellings/ meanings.

  • demographicallychallenged

    I am suprised that no one remembers during the finanacial melt down in 2008 Mc Cain wanted to suspend his campaign and go back to the Senate and handle the crisis.The Media mocked him. When our P O S sorry wanted to type P O T U S,used it for a photo op they praise him.

  • Is it a sin to wish this guy would have a stroke on camera?

    • iaintlyin

      It is a sin but it would be a dream come true

  • It’s time to start boycotting sponsors of his show.

  • aposematic

    Typical leftist mentality–people are expendable. The ends justify the means irregardless of the people’s hardship and sufferring.

  • Why is this jerk still on TV? Oh, that’s right, he’s a flaming liberal with a big mouth. THAT is why he’s allowed to say whatever he wants on TV. What was I thinking.

  • bobemakk

    This “thrill up the leg” idiot apologized, but it’s too late, the damaging remark was already said, and I live in the area where the storm hit and we lost power, no gas, lines for 3 hours and the stations then ran out. There are people that had bigger problems, but this guy is a complete brainless fool. It just proves that the lamestream media is screwed up. I dont know how the networks let Matthews continue to report.

    If the lamestream media would report the truth, I would be willing to bet that Romney would have won, I am sure most of you agree.

  • Susitna

    We all know that Matthews suffers from progressive dementia, but what scares me the most is that he still has listeners. I don’t have any hope that he will ever become a decent good man.

  • SKL53

    Tooo bad Matthews didn’t have parents or children living in the Rockaways or Staten Island! Maybe if his family members died he would be singing a DIFFERENT tune! He is a dumb jerk!!! An empty headed ass!!!!
