Chris Matthews and Joy Reid Think Benghazi and Fast & Furious are HILARIOUS

Today on Hardball, host Chris Matthews had a discussion – and you may want to sit down for this because it’s a real shocker – had a discussion about the so-called “Bridgegate” “scandal” in New Jersey, with guests David Corn and Joy Reid.

MATTHEWS: Okay. There was an editorial for action right there. It’s like a little set of buttons. I said it’s almost like in Manchurian Candidate, just show the queen of diamonds. Just show it, just show the words. Just say Benghazi and the right wing starts twittering and quittering and they go excited. And just say Fast & Furious to the gun guys out there, and they go crazy, you know IRS. But tell me about the PR and the method of operation and what it possibly has to do with a very clear, serious scandal in Jersey, which is on the record now.

REID: And I actually watched that last night and was thinking exactly what you’re thinking. It sort of shows you the extent to which the right wing media has sort of body snatched the political class on the right, where these myths that live in minds and nightmares and terrors and night terrors of conservatives in the base have now infected their ability to do politics.

Ha ha ha ha, stupid Republicans. Americans being dead is such a dumb thing to worry about, with your twittering and your … you know I can’t even do my sarcastic Matthews voice here. Because seriously, what the hell was he doing? Was he raising the roof or having a seizure?



The general point they are making is that it is stupid of Republicans to compare the Christie bridge scandal to things like Benghazi or Fast & Furious or the IRS targeting conservative groups. I agree it’s dumb to make that comparison, but what is amazing is that Matthews and Reid think it’s dumb because the bridge story is so much more serious. Honestly, I had to watch it three times to make sure I wasn’t hallucinating.

Reid goes even further, calling the Obama scandals myths! Someone has been reading their Media Matters talking points.

MSNBC today had wall-to-wall coverage of “bridgegate”. Actually wall-to-wall doesn’t really describe it fully. It was more like wall-to-wall, ceiling-to-floor, front-to-back, top-to-bottom, person-to-person, HOUR TO HOUR MINUTE TO MINUTE SECOND TO SECOND OH MY GOD LOOK AT THIS RIGHT NOW BECAUSE NOTHING THIS IMPORTANT OR SCANDALOUS HAS EVER HAPPENED TO ANYONE EVER AND WE INCLUDE NERO FIDDLING WHILE ROME BURNED WHICH THIS BASICALLY IS THE SAME AS BUT WITH MORE BRIDGES!!

I’m saying. They really covered this story.

MSNBC and the democrats as a whole (but I repeat myself) want this story to be the biggest political scandal of 2014, and since it’s only January, they really have to milk this puppy. Anyone who watches MSNBC knows .. both of us know … that the democrats are terrified of 2014. They are desperate to pretend Obamacare is a huge success, they are desperate to pretend that the economy is going swimmingly, and they are absolutely “my name is Inigo Montoya” OBSESSED with getting the focus moved away from the countless scandals, debacles, missteps, misspokes, general incompetence and rank partisan grotesqueries that have plagued the office of The One. In their sad, fumbling, mouth-drooling glee to achieve that goal, they’ve overreached on the Christie scandal to such an extent it makes John Lennon’s “more popular than Jesus” quote seem like a perfectly commonplace comparison. ‘Would you like some bread? It’s better than Jesus. Then we can talk about the myth of Benghazi.’

But of course, this desperation will prove fruitless. Try as they might, and they try mightily, the Obama scandals are not just going to pack their bags and run along home because of Chris Christie. So keep clawing at the sides of that hole MSNBC. You’re just pulling the mud down on top of you.

Caleb’s absolutely right, they are truly desperate. Here are the two primary reasons they’re so desperate right now, and the first of these IS HAPPENING TODAY: http://thehill.com/business-a-lobbying/business-a-lobbying/195155-supreme-court-to-decide-the-limits-of-executive-power http://dailycaller.com/2014/01/08/epa-overrides-congress-hands-over-town-to-indian-tribes/ You know what I thought when I read the one brief blurb I was willing to tolerate about “the bridge scandal”? I thought, “Who cares?” Maybe I’m shell-shocked by all the LEFT-wing REAL scandals involving the U.S. Constitution being trampled on with contempt by the entire obama REGIME, and the BETRAYAL of Americans in Benghazi, and the total wreckage of the US economy by the ineligible, unqualified, pathological narcissist in the White House. Or the forced continuing dependence on our deadliest enemies for energy while crushing the domestic energy industry. Or … I could go on for a long time. So drop dead, mathews, reid, and corny.

Well look, it’s MSNBC so it’s only what one expects, morons on parade. I played to the clip to see if David Corn bough in on the hilarity because once upon a time, he was what used to pass for an intelligent liberal, er, communist, by his own description iirc. Though now if he’s on MSNBC, what can you expect. For that matter there was a time when Matthews wasn’t an idiot. There is no rationality to what is shown on MSNBC. They laugh at known deaths, dereliction of duty, and known facts, if they are not pretty or convenient, and glom onto something trivial instead. Matthews *is* a squirrel these days, and if you tune in you can watch him and his nuts, but you are unlikely to learn any facts about any issues.

Obama’s refusal to enforce immigration law, his blatant waste of money by organizations under his control, and the list keeps on growing. Fact is the big three, AHA, Fast & Furious and the IRS targeting is only the tip of the iceberg of lies. Obama still hasn’t provided documents defending his little real estate issue.

Liked the “carpet bomb” reference. I was stationed in Bremerhaven Germany, which being a deep sea port was blanket bombed in World War II. For anyone unfamiliar, lets just say that Bremerhaven has very little left standing from pre World War II, unlike much of Germany down south. The navy yard museum at the Columbus center still has a U-boat that you can go aboard. Like I tell many of my students, it is one thing to read history, it is a whole other thing to actually walk through history.

There are a lot of times that I don’t gave time to watch a video. Most of the time the videos load extremely slow and its annoying. It loads fine on other websites and loads fine if I use my laptop to watch vids on here but using an Android phone here it doesnt. Blah blah blah…I know. As for Chris Mathews and that Reid skank, I would like to slap the living sh** out of both of them.

OK, here’s a few:
How, and why we entered a war in the middle east, invaded the wrong country, and destroyed the economy, I think that deserves a ‘scandal’ rating.
Income inequality, edging toward the same rate it was prior the the Great Depression, and neither party is addressing it.
Education, the rise of ‘charter schools’ that are lowering standards even more. Along with the desire to influence education with false science (intelligent design), and false history (i.e. lies about the founding fathers) or what made the middle class.
There are a few ‘scandals’ for you.
The dumbing down of a nation.
The erosion of the middle class.
Worry about that.

You’re a riot. How is it scandal that the war was entered by Congressional approval, which seems to matter little to the dear leader who has put boots on the ground in more countries than GW ever did, and while we’re at it, providing direct aid to the same terrorists who attacked us and still fight against our military now. Destroyed the economy. Well I’ll partially give you that as most Conservatives I know were NOT thrilled with the original bail out under GW, but before you choke on the hypocrisy sandwich I’ll just say, Obama, Reid and other progressives were against raising the debt ceiling by billions before they were for raising the debt ceiling by trillions. As for education- so called “charter schools’ lowering standards? That’s rich. Since when has it become law that parents have no choice where to have their children educated? Where in the Constitution… Read more »

Isn’t it something when you talk to an idiot liberal and they bring up income inequality? They know nothing. They don’t know that under Obama 96% of the wealth created in this country has gone to the top 2%. When you hit’em with that one all you hear is bashing of teeth or silence. And I’m weak minded.

How can any of these willing propagandists – ESPECIALLY at MSNBC – be capable of moderating a debate? Their bias, their religious devotion to leftists and O, are blinding them to facts and reality.

Can you imagine a Republican presidential debate between Hillary and ANY Republican candidate……and the issue of Benghazi is raised by the candidate? Can you see a Candy Crowley (or Rachel Maddow) even ALLOWING such a mention without intervening?

They would cry “foul” and declare it a “myth” – and it would be somehow acceptable to these delusional cretins!!!

Joy Reid… “right wing media” !!! And what “right wing media” would that be there cupcake? They actually believe there’s a “body snatching” right wing media. Really! Maybe in Canada (barely)… but in America? Naah. Not really if we continue to see the slide of FOX into progressivism. That tiny little clip of truth telling by Michael Grimm, which Matthews dismissively called “performance art” and the “barfing out of buzzwords”, was a tiny little little shard of sunlight that Matthews mistakenly let his audience witness before he interrupted it and shut it down completely. These Obama worshipers, like Matthews, are much like Muslims. Muslims just can’t stand the existence of little tiny Israel on 1/6 of one percent of the land mass in the Middle East. Even that they want to take away from Israel. Likewise… America’s leftists can’t stand the tiny little percentage of media turf held by America’s… Read more »

…MSNBC today had wall-to-wall coverage of “bridgegate…”

It’s still wall to wall coverage this morning. I read the article, but couldn’t watch and listen to leftist shrills. Matthews, Reid and Corn were nonsensical in their egregious commentary. Just look at the video’s title at MSNBC, Obama’s official TV news outlet:

Is the IRS scandal bigger than ‘Bridgegate’?
Right-wingers say Christie’s scandal is a drop in the bucket compared to what Obama has done. David Corn and Joy Reid discuss right-wing myths and denial.
http://on.msnbc.com/1d9uaYQ

The Scoop is right; their tomfoolery analysis was a despicable attempt to change the subject from Obamacare. What they joyfully stated about real scandals like the Benghazi cover-up, IRS targeting conservative organizations, Fast and Furious, etc. reveals their sick and twisted minds.

The truth and their reputations doesn’t exist when it comes to defending Obama and it’s revolting.

Not sure if it has already been pointed out, but these Dems are just so delusional that they think that an “R” beside Christie’s name makes it so.

Christie was just so teddy bear fluffy with ODumbo after Sandy. They even booked a room together. After all… he was what Dems call a “good” Republican… in the same way that a Christian who believes Mohammed was a prophet is a “good” “person of the book”. In other words not a Christian at all. And neither is Christie a conservative at all either.

Democrats… delusional and gloriously un-self-aware as always.

Guess Matthews is one of those “concerned for the GOP” trolls out there – so worried that it has now “infected” our ability to do politics. And that’s the difference, to Matthews and his lefty co-travelers, Benghazi, IRS, DOJ, NSA, etc. are just politics instead of the effects on flesh and blood people.

Blocking traffic on one bridge is a “serious scandal,” but using the IRS to block Republican groups from organizing get-out-the-vote efforts across the entire nation is just a “myth.” Clearly these people are disconnected from reality and only report the news they want to be true.
