Matthews raises
profile during campaign

Associated Press, by David Bauder

NEW YORK -- To his boss, Chris Matthews has become a statesman. His critics probably have other words. The veteran MSNBC host raised his profile as much as any member of the television commentariat during the presidential campaign. His 5 p.m. "Hardball" show has seen viewership jump by 24 percent this year from 2011, 17 percent for the rerun two hours later. Matthews symbolized MSNBC´s growing comfort in being a liberal alternative to Fox News Channel. He engaged in an uncomfortable on-air confrontation with Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus, seemed nearly apoplectic when President Barack Obama flubbed his
Headline split by staff.

Comments:
Chris Matthews has become a statesman?? Uhh, being a statesman usually refers to someone with respect and integrity. Those are not even considered where Matthews is concerned! Good. Grief. These morons are completely delusional.

He still doesn´t come close to Fox´s ratings. Now that the election is over he´ll return to nothingness.

We just cancelled the portion of our cable that has CNN, MSNBC, and CNBC.

I feel so lucky that these evildoers are gone from our home.

Just read that Chelsea Clinton is a "pretend journalist" at NBC. So, Chris Matthew must be a pretend statesman at MSNBC.

He has a nervous breakdown every time he opens his mouth. The station has to resort to promoting him, I guess. He´s such a loser. Spittle out of the corners of his mouth when he talks about Republicans! Yuck.

In his error, David Bauder assumes anyone gives a rabid rat´s rump about an off-the-wall has-been political hack like Matthews. Matthews, poor idiot, thinks he is Cronkite. I think so, too.

`I´ll never forget this idiots mouth foaming over Valerie Plame or the firing of states attorneys by Bush.This guy tried to manufacture a crisis out of each.Compare that to his complete disinterest in anything Obama. He constantly labelling people racists who don´t agree with Obama´s 3rd world political style.
All these kooky leftists think Obama has a holy grail answer for society´s problems,although all he does is spend money and vacation at the end of the day. I simply can´t stomach this clown any more as he´s gone way off the reservation to fit with his fellow nut jobs on the station.

I really thought MSNBC did the best job covering the Iraq invasion.They stood behind the troops. Somewhere around 2006 these people made a huge left turn and are sutck with the Huff and Kos low info crowd as their main unhinged viewers.

This whle crowd of people think Obama "cutting his vacation short" is nothing but an act of pure heroism when we´re in this position because of his hard left wing ideology and foot dragging.

There´s no such thing as being a counterbalance to Fox because Fox gives an objective take on the news most of the time. They have way more leftists on the payroll,while I don´t know of any conservatives on PSNBC because they´re too insecure in their positions to allow some sunlight in.
If you never saw the clip of Matthews badgering Michelle Malkin and then throwing her off the show,you don´t know what your missing.Totally unglued.

Who is this woman,get her out of here.

FTA- - - -
"He is sort of the model figure for who we are," Griffin said. "He doesn´t stick out loving politics and being passionate about politics. It comes across in everything we do ... And that´s Chris."

"being passionate" appears to mean unrestrained by logic or compassion for one´s adversary. Mathews doesn´t debate with anyone.
He only shouts them down.
In so doing, he trains little prog fascists how to win without thinking.
How to win with the MOB.

FTA: "He´s at a place in his life where he´s really comfortable in his own skin. He´s a statesman. He has so much knowledge and I think he understands it better. He´s always been great, but I really think he´s been at the peak of his game."

Happy I wore my boots today. It´s getting a little deep around here.

I say more Chris Tingle. Does anyone anywhere actually believe a more conspicuous Chrissy is a positive development? For all his many faults, taking criticism very poorly is very near the top. That´s right, let this buffoon dictate the dialog. Bring it on, pillow face.

I almost choked when I saw they put Chris Matthews and the word "statesman" in the same sentence! Gak!!! You HAVE to be kidding!! Oh and MSNBC is NOT a liberal alternative to anything. They are NOT liberal at all. They are leftists!! When are we going to stop letting the left get away with using the word "liberal" when it is only being used to mislead the public. Leftists are NOT liberal in any real sense of the word. They are controlling tyrants who want to create a totalitarian nightmare where they (the elite) are in charge and everyone else is a slave to the state. That is NOT liberal. Liberal (in the classic sense of the word) has to do with freedom, liberty, equality under the law...everything that our Founders and most of today´s conservatives stand for. Let´s STOP helping the left by using that misleading word and call these cretins what they really are...leftists, socialists, communists, tyrants, control-freaks, evil...

The ass-press´s Bauder calling Chrissie "Tingles up my leg" Matthews a statesman is like that Kenyan foreign student Obama referring to hairplugs wearing Joe "Bite Me" Biden as a Genius....it´s the daily drumbeat of the same old crap, different day. It´s all BS all the time from the big mouth idiots on the left, isnt it? Too bad the Jonestown-like kool-aid sucking idiot low-information larvae gulp it down with a smile, that´s the reason the Staue of Liberty is crying her eyes out.God help us all in our America.

percentage increases are suspicious. From 1 to two is a hundred percent increase.
The only thing in Matthews favor is the fact that those who pay him are nuttier than he is.

On election night in 2000, Chrissy referred to the people in the central time zone of Florida as "those toothless hicks in the panhandle" Such class, such statesman like character. /sarc
At that time he colored his hair Tweety Bird yellow. Does he still?

Hopefully Comcast comes to it´s senses and fires everyone on NBC and PMSNBC. They should try to emulate FoxNews. Otherwise they go down the toilet. Matthews is a complete fool and "man-whore" for Obama. No credibility at all.

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Steve Lynch is a Democratic Rep. from Massachusetts who doesn’t hesitate to buck the party line from a centrist point of view, and to speak openly about problems in the party and with party positions. Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs. It is always worthwhile to revisit de Tocqueville’s description of what he called the

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
