Chris Matthews: Is challenging
Obama unconstitutional?

Washington Examiner, by Byron York

Original Article

Posted By:Judy W., 10/18/2012 8:20:01 AM

On MSNBC’s “Hardball” Wednesday evening, Chris Matthews discussed the theatrics of the presidential debate with James Lipton, longtime host of “Inside the Actor’s Studio.” Lipton offered some unremarkable observations — he called Mitt Romney “the boss who tells lame jokes and waits for everybody to laugh or else” — but what made the segment remarkable was Matthews’ reaction to a portion of the debate in which Romney in essence silenced President Obama, telling him he would have a chance to speak later. (Snip) After the clip ended, Matthews seemed appalled. “I don’t think [Romney] understands the Constitution

I think it might be more fun to watch the election on MSNBC than on Fox News. Going to be a lot of exploding heads over there.

Is Chrissie going to turn into a real life Howard Beale on Nov. 7th? Can't you just see him screaming "Racists, everyone who voted for Romney is a racist. I'm made as hell and I'm not going to take it it anymore, the racists have ruined everything!"

He has hitched his entire future career to the Messiah's wagon, and the growing desperation in his antics is just plain fun to watch.

If the Messiah loses (he says with fingers crossed), look for Matthews to react so badly that MSNBC is forced to suspend him on November 7th and fire him later, just like his friend Keith Olbermann.

Chris Matthews is a joke. His views aren't worth the space to record them. It's people like him, and many others, who can't face facts and truth to these people doesn't exist.
They wouldn't admit to any real TRUTH if it hit them like a rocket. They will have their way by talking over anyone who disagrees with them and at the same time preaching tolerance and diversity and don't forget PC.

Chrissy has literally gone over the edge. When Romney wins, they will have to carry Matthews out in a straight-jacket. What a cry-baby! How can he keep defending the man who promised to cut the debt in half, but managed to triple it in less than four years. We are now over $16 trillion in debt and rising. It's like being on the Titanic as it quickly sinks.

It is Chris Matthews -a voluble fool- who does not understand the Constitution and the concept of the presidency.

He wants to reintroduce the crime of lese majesty -offending the dignity of the king.

But the president of the United States is referred to as Mr. President, not your highness, your excellency, or some other title of exalted rank.

The president is a citizen just like every other citizen. The office is not sacred. It is not derived from Divine Right and conferred by God. It is an elective office whereby Americans choose one of their own to occupy the presidency for a specific period of time.

The whole idea and principle of republican, representative government is at stake when people like Matthews seek to elevate the president and the presidency beyond the reach of confrontation, criticism, and yes, even rudeness. Though they seem not to understand it, they are on the path to idolatry, kingship, and serfdom.

Matthews is getting older, and frankly, some folks grow older better than others. The question is, is Matthews' mind healthy enough to be in public? That said, just because he's a blowhard with bolts loose in his head, I don't think Matthews should be allowed to say incredible things like that and not be questioned on it.

Matthews wants a Sun King - an all-powerful ruler who hands down edicts with absolute power.

Chrissy, that's WHY we had a Revolution a few centuries ago. Dear old King George was writing Executive Orders instead of including us in his supposedly representative government.

Obama is NOT a King Chrissy - he is a servant - and a very bad one. He is our Employee. Some of us have asked Mitt Romney to take him to the woodshed, because we ain't happy with him. Romney is obligingly doing so.

Romney, bless him, will then become America's chief servant and try to undo the mess your selection caused.

Chrissie, reaching for Constitutional straws, LOL. Flailing now. I love it.
In our non-monarchy, Chrissie, respect is earned. On that exchange with Romney, Obama got all the respect he is due, on that topic, and most any other topic.

Knowing Barry as we do, these debates, the sharp criticism, the questioning of him, the absence of adoration and deference, have got to be completely infuriating to him. I'm talkin' punch a hole in the drywall kind of infuriating. During the debate you could see the hatred and disdain for Romney, just oozing from Obama. Doting Mommie and GrandMommie didn't raise Barry to be criticized or questioned for that matter, ever!

incroyable. One day in the future, after having used all his credibility to prop up Obama, who will fall anyway, Tingle will try to rescue his reputation by saying he didn't really mean the things he said, always saw himself as one voice among others. But if it had worked out, which it won't, he would tell the truth, which is he dreamed of himself as the solitary hero upholding Obama by crushing all others.

Chris Matthews was denied a raise when he renewed his contract. Olberman got $7.5M/yr and Chrissy only $5M/yr.

So Chris connected the dots and concluded "I must be more like Olbermann." And I am convinced that this is nothing more than a basis for him to head back to the table, point out how he bent in directions only Olbermann had previously achieved, and then he could at least have a case for the $7.5M Keith got.

Despite his on-air idiocy, he isn't stupid and being more like Keith is his mantra every day. He knows that equals more money down the road. Principles? Sure, he has them however twisted they are, but at the end of the day. Money talks, Chrissy hawks.

We'll see if he renegotiates after the election...

Libertarians and liberal Republicans have been proposing a truce on social issues in order to be able to concentrate on fiscal issues, but there is no such thing as a truce on any issue with the left. Brendan Eich offered the left a truce on gay marriage. He talked about tolerance and diversity and he got his head handed to him.

An unlikely alliance is forming between conservatives and liberals rightly asking whether it makes sense that America has the highest incarceration rate in the world. One out of every 100 American adults is behind bars, according to The Washington Post. Besides the tremendous cost of housing an inmate in a maximum-security federal prison—pegged at around $33,000 per year—the sheer volume of the U.S. prison population warrants a closer look. Why are so many people behind bars?

There are things that people know, or think that they know, about Rahm Emanuel: He is voluble, tireless, notoriously profane. And yet, when I met him last month, all the stories hadn’t prepared me for his intensity in person. A conversation with Emanuel is a physical experience. When he has strong feelings about a subject—which is often—he frequently sits on the very edge of his chair, emphasizing his point through proximity. At one point, he waved his finger inches from my face, Lyndon Johnson–style. Emanuel’s forceful personality is especially at odds with the surprisingly Zen atmosphere of the mayoral offices

With waves of American college graduates about to hit the job market, it’s a good bet most of them don’t think of the controversial conservative author, Charles Murray, as their mentor. The W. H. Brady Scholar at the American Enterprise Institute and author of several books – including Coming Apart (about divided white America) and The Bell Curve (with Richard Herrnstein) – is hardly known as a warm and fuzzy job counselor. Yet, in The Curmudgeon’s Guide to Getting Ahead, a new primer for workplace newbies, Murray dispenses some of the best advice today’s overly coddled millennial grads haven’t yet heard. Related: The

Is it too farfetched to connect the dots between a brilliant Wall Street Journal op-ed by Charles Koch, the chairman and CEO of Koch Industries, and the continued sluggish recovery in jobs, business investment, and the overall economy? I don’t think so. In his piece, Mr. Koch seems to make a plea for a big dose of free-market capitalism. He argues, “The central belief and fatal conceit of the current administration is that you are incapable of running your own life, but those in power are capable of running it for you. This is the essence of big government and

Former Florida governor Jeb Bush said Sunday that he will base his decision on whether to run for president in 2016 on whether he thinks he can mount a campaign that would transcend the modern-day mechanics of such a run. Bush, the second-oldest son of former president George H. W. Bush and younger brother of George W. Bush, spoke at an event marking the 25th anniversary of his father´s presidency at the library and museum that bears the patriarch´s name. The event was closed to reporters, but moderated by Fox News anchor Shannon Bream and portions of the event were later

Former Florida governor Jeb Bush said Sunday that many who illegally come to the United States do so out of an "act of love" for their families and should be treated differently than people who illegally cross U.S. borders or overstay visas. The comments came during an event marking the 25th anniversary of the presidency of George H. W. Bush at the library and museum that bears the name of the Bush patriarch.

Why does Hillary Clinton hate America? That is the question that should be on everyone’s mind as she embarks on a worldwide tour to plug her forthcoming memoir. Check out this THE POLITICO article [emphasis mine]: Hillary Clinton discussed her work at the State Department, called for young women not to take criticisms personally and rapped the media for treating powerful women with a double standard at the kickoff of “Women in the World” in New York City Thursday night. Clinton’s appearance on a panel with International Monetary Fund Managing Director Christine Lagarde, moderated by New York Times columnist Tom Friedman, ran

Kathryn Riffenburg decided on a closed casket for her baby´s funeral. She didn´t want her family to see what whooping cough, her son´s first illness, had done to 9-week-old Brady Alcaide. The nearly forgotten disease, which has in recent years afflicted thousands of Americans, left Brady´s tiny body swollen and unrecognizable. So his mother dressed him in a white baptismal suit and hat and tucked him into a tiny white casket. Brady´s burial came just four weeks after his first laugh — inspired by her version of I´m a Little Teapot — and two weeks after his family learned that he had

In Dearborn, Mich., home to over 40,000 Americans of Arab descent, some Muslim parents have complained about flyers handed out at public schools advertising an Easter egg hunt at a local Presbyterian church. The Muslim parents assert that the flyers – emblazoned with the word “Eggstravaganza!” – violate the separation of church and state widely ascribed to the First Amendment’s Establishment Clause, reports the Detroit Free Press. Students at three Dearborn elementary schools received the flyers. A large number of Muslim students attend the schools. The “Eggstravaganza!” is scheduled to take place on April 12 event at Cherry Hill Presbyterian Church

Democrats are facing a senior problem that could get even worse this year. The party has traditionally had trouble with older voters, losing the group aged 65 and over by 21 points in 2010 — when Republicans picked up 63 seats — and by 12 points in the 2012 presidential race. Seniors are the GOP’s most reliable voting bloc in midterm years, turning out in higher numbers than Democratic base voters. A recent Gallup poll showed seniors have become even more Republican over the last two decades; in 2013, 48 percent considered themselves Republican. That spells trouble for Democrats, who are already facing

Add Bryan Cranston, the star of TV´s recent hit "Breaking Bad" and a new Broadway play about former President Lyndon B. Johnson, to Team Obamacare. In an interview with Yahoo News “global anchor” Katie Couric, the actor called Obamacare the highlight of President Obama´s legacy. “Now’s the time to stake a claim to leave your legacy,” he encouraged Obama. “I personally believe that his health care program is fantastic. Yes, there are problems. Anything worth while is going to go through a growing pains period. But this is his legacy and I think it’s a great one because I don’t

American public school students sick of the smaller portions and healthier offerings they get at lunch thanks to Michelle Obama´s anti-obesity initiatives are sounding off on social media. Just a month after school lunch participation saw the steepest drop on record following the implementation of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act, students tired of going home hungry are making sure the first lady knows why. ´I´ll never forgive Michelle Obama for this school lunch,´ tweeted one angry student. [Snip] The extremely negative reviews have over a million kids refusing to eat the offerings, an ironic result for legislation meant to combat

WASHINGTON- Seven million people signed up, so there is an appetite for President Barack Obama´s health care law, but that doesn´t guarantee success for the country´s newest social program. Big challenges are lurking for the next enrollment season, which starts Nov. 15. Chief among them are keeping premiums and other consumer costs in check, and overhauling an enrollment process that was advertised as customer-friendly but turned out to be an ordeal. "They have demonstrated the law can work, but we are a ways off from being able to judge its success," said Larry Levitt, an expert on health insurance markets

The president gave two speeches this week, one in the Rose Garden to talk about Obamacare and one in Ann Arbor, Mich., to push minimum wage increases. What did we learn? We learned that President Obama is most comfortable in campaign mode, and his campaigning has gotten downright ugly. His Rose Garden speech was a typical self-congratulatory moment for supposedly hitting 7.1 million Obamacare sign-ups — although we know that once again, the White House is ignoring some inconvenient truths. We also learned that the president was vain enough to asked the networks to cover his speech in prime time, but

Jay-Z raised eyebrows at the Barclay´s Center last week when he wore a medallion symbolizing the Five Percent Nation. The Brooklyn-born rapper was sitting court-side at a Nets game on Tuesday with wife Beyonce when he was snapped wearing the controversial symbol. One of the core tenants of the Five Percent Nation - an off-shoot of the Nation of Islam - is that white people are ´wicked and inferior´ to black men. When asked by a reporter whether the medallion is meaningful to him, Jay-Z shrugged and said ´A little bit´. This isn´t the first time that the
