This is really weird, because I don’t think Chris “Tingles” Matthews intended to be so brutally honest on Friday night’s “Hardball.” While trying to figure out why Democrats are losing, he accidentally admits that Obama hasn’t been a “real chief executive” for the last six years, just a “good speech giver,” and wonders if he’s ready to actually lead the government.
Further on, he amazingly adds that Democrats looked for a president “who was smarter, more academic, who read books,” but didn’t ask if he knew how to run anything.
Chris Matthews actually said no one asked if Obama "could run things," when he was elected… amazing. https://t.co/3B2XmgZNcj

It’s really amazing. Is he finally admitting what conservatives have been saying for more than six years? And doesn’t he owe America an apology for contributing to the pretense that a “good speech-giver” could be a competent president?
