Post-debate, MSNBC’s Matthews
claims Romney supporters
fueled by racial hatred of Obama

Fox News, by Dan Gainor

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 10/23/2012 9:43:15 AM

Presidential Debate III was more like “Rocky” Round 16, an afterthought where neither boxer really lands a clean punch on the other and where the crowd has dozed off or gone to bed. Only in the land of MSNBC were sparks flying. Famously tingly MSNBC host Chris Matthews decided the whole race came down to, well, race. In one of the more outlandish rants of an outlandish career, Matthews said the right hates Obama more than they want to destroy Al Qaeda, according to The Hill. The rant is too priceless to edit: “I think they hate Obama.

People don't hate him because he's black. They hate him because he's an evil human being and a treasonous president. It's a content of character thing.

Prediction: when Mitt wins and the Dem party encourages their people to riot - Matthews will be on TV egging them on.

Chrissie, racist vote! It doesn't matter in our country the reason we choice to vote for or against a candidate. All that matters is we get to vote and have a small say in the people that dictate, I mean goobern, us. So if a white guy votes against a black guy in favor of another white guy, that’s OK. And if a black guy votes against a white guy in favor of another black guy, that’s OKL as well. As a matter of fact, more blacks vote for the black guy than whites vote for another white guy. So we do allow racism in this country and liberals love it when the racism is selective (blacks voting against whites in favor of another black). It’s the American way, Chrissie.

“Chrissy” and all his Progressive Pals have "Ideology Disorder".
Their “ideology” ( biased, hate-filled, class warfare thinking) is so mind-bending that they cannot see any other valid approach to a problem.

They are ALL Racists themselves.

They can't tell the difference between someone who is NOT a racist but disagrees with Progressive Big Government Plantation "solutions" and someone who IS a racist.

If you cannot tell the difference between a racist and someone who is NOT a racist, then YOU’RE A RACIST!

" And we can go into that about the white working class in the South and looking at these numbers we're getting the last couple days about racial hatred in many cases"

I've noticed Matthews using this phrase a number of times to imply they have data coming in showing racism. No such data exists and this is just another MSNBC lie.

Chris Mathews needs to get a grip. The Romney supporters do not like 0bama and his lies, they do not like 0bama acting like a bully and a thug, they do not like 0bama's ignorance or arrogance, it has nothing to do about race. 0bama makes it really hard to like someone who is as mean and snarky as he is.

I always thought that racism was when you treated someone different because of their race.

Given how the lie-berals used to attack Bush with every possible line, and no conservative ever called it racism.

Yet if a conservative says anything about N∅bama, they are instantly accused of racism by the lie-berals.

So it is clearly the lie-berals who are treating N∅bama differently, not the conservatives. I don't know of one conservative who has ever attacked N∅bama because of his race. But we attack him constantly for his socialistic policies, his love of islam, and his general hate of everythign American. That has nothing to do with his race.

What is there to like about Obama? I watched him last night, Obama is a lying jurk. None of what he said last night was truthful in fact or what he actually has ever done. Then he trys to talk down to Romney and the viewers but all I see is someone that knows nothing about the subject at hand. Whereas Romney had total control of the facts.

It's as simple as most people AREN'T liberal.
Only 20% of the population self-identifies as liberal, therefore, 80% of the country doesn't support their agenda.

Overwhelming majority of Democrat politicians in DC are liberal - they're over-represented.

"Liberal icon John F. Kennedy" ???

Can you imagine a DemocRAT of today saying this:

"Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, in order to assure the survival and the success of liberty. This much we pledge—and more."

Can you just imagine that? Right. Neither can I.

The fact is, today's DemocRAT would be doing just what Clinton and Obama have done - APOLOGIZE. BOW. GROVEL.

Kennedy was no liberal- at least by today's standards. And mind you, I'm no Kennedy fan.

Eric Holder defends using Justice
Department airplane for 27 personal trips
Washington Examiner (DC), by Joel Gehrke    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/4/2014 9:34:34 PM     Post Reply
Attorney General Eric Holder disputed a Government Accountability Office report on his use of Justice Department airplanes for personal trips, saying it overstated the number of trips he took and failed to recognize that some trips were job-related. "My staff keeps telling me to take it easy, you know, well, this is one that gets me," Holder told Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., during a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing. "There was this notion that we´ve taken -- I think it was described as hundreds of personal trips. That was wrong. GAO counted flights, not round trips. And we looked at it

Conservative Leaders Predict Tea

The increasingly open “civil war” now raging between a Republican establishment that favors big government and members of the Tea Party is a necessary evil that will eventually force the GOP back to its limited government principles, conservative leaders say. “This is part of a literally 102-year-old civil war that’s been going on in the Republican Party since 1912, when Teddy Roosevelt leaves the Republican Party, splits the party, starts the Bull Moose Party, which leads directly to Woodrow Wilson’s election with less than 42 percent of the vote,” Conservative HQ chairman Richard Viguerie told CNSNews.com.

NEW YORK- The U.S. economy has regained all the private-sector jobs it lost in the Great Recession; it took six years. The Labor Department said Friday that America added 192,000 jobs in March. The unemployment rate remained 6.7 percent. After five years of being in and out of work, Tara Dublin found a job a few weeks ago as a hostess at a restaurant in Portland, Ore.. "I´ve been hired by this restaurant I absolutely love, but it´s a part-time position," Dublin says. She makes $11 an hour, plus tips. In March, of the 192,000 jobs created, 30,000 were in

The discovery led to the arrest of a 73-year-old woman accused of running one of the warehouses connected to a drug smuggling operation, according to a joint news release by four federal agencies. The tunnels were discovered as part of a five-month investigation by the so-called San Diego Tunnel Task Force. Federal law enforcement officials said the first tunnel, which connects a warehouse in Tijuana, Mexico, with one

CINCINNATI- A federal judge said Friday that he will strike down Ohio´s voter-approved ban on gay marriage, a move that stops short of forcing Ohio to perform same-sex weddings but will make the state recognize gay couples legally wed elsewhere. Judge Timothy Black announced his intentions in federal court in Cincinnati following final arguments in a lawsuit that challenged the constitutionality of the marriage ban. "I intend to issue a declaration that Ohio´s recognition bans, that have been relied upon to deny legal recognition to same-sex couples validly entered in other states where legal, violates the rights secured by the

Former President George W. Bush on Friday revealed his portraits of world leaders — and the tidbit that Russian President Vladimir Putin thought he had a better dog. Mr. Bush told his daughter, Jenna Bush Hager, a correspondent for the “Today” show, that he had a good relationship with Mr. Putin, but “it became more tense as time went on.” Mr. Bush, who took up painting after his presidency and showed off a new exhibit Friday, said it was clear that Mr. Putin viewed the United States as an enemy, and that the Russian president viewed the world as a

How has former president George W. Bush been spending his time out of office? By painting, of course. We´ve long known of Bush´s exploration of his artistic side. But now we get to see the results. Bush is unveiling more than two dozen portraits of world leaders for an exhibit called "The Art of Leadership: A President´s Personal Diplomacy" at Southern Methodist University. Of his painting, Bush told his daughter Jenna Bush Hager: "There’s a Rembrandt trapped in this body." While neither SMU nor the Bush library will release close-ups of all of the portraits (booooo!), they did send us

Imagine going to work one day only to be, in effect, fired -- not because of anything you did or didn’t do at your job, but because of something you did in your personal life. Something religious. Or maybe, something political.(snip)That’s exactly what happened to Brendan Eich, a highly-respected tech guru in Silicon Valley and co-founder of Mozilla Corporation, after he was appointed CEO in late March. In less than a week, he was forced out of this position for no reason other than that he had a made a $1000 contribution to the Prop 8 initiative in 2008. His

The State Department has no idea what happened to $6 billion used to pay its contractors. In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years. The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors. The lack of oversight “exposes the department to significant financial risk,” the auditor said. “It creates conditions conducive to fraud, as corrupt individuals may attempt

Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich will step down following uproar over his apparent opposition to gay marriage. In a statement released Thursday, Mozilla -- which makes the Firefox Web browser -- apologized for not reacting more quickly to the controversy surrounding Eich, who made a 2008 donation supporting California´s plan on gay marriage, The Guardian reports. "We know why people are hurt and angry, and they are right: it´s because we haven´t stayed true to ourselves," said Mozilla executive chairwoman Mitchell Baker in a statement. Last week, Eich attempted to dispel fears on whether he would support equality as the head

In his opening statement during highly anticipated testimony Wednesday on Benghazi, former CIA deputy director Michael Morell claimed to be an intelligence professional who was willing to lay out the facts -- no matter how damaging. "I take very seriously the allegations about how the CIA in general and about how I in particular handled the analysis and the talking points," Morell told the House Intelligence Committee, in his first public testimony on the Benghazi attacks. "The ethical code under which intelligence officers carry out their responsibilities calls for total objectivity." But Morell´s own testimony would appear to undercut that

Big changes could be just down the road for North Carolina drivers. A proposal is in the works that would change the state tax system to charge drivers by the mile, instead of at the gas pump.The proposal would be to charge a half cent per mile for cars, which would generate almost $500 million in annual state revenue. A driver who travelled 15,000 miles in a year would pay about $75. "Basically you pay per the mile. It´s treating transportation as a utility, much like your water and sewer," said Larry Goode, with the Institute of Transportation Research and

Earlier this week on Boston’s WRKO-AM’s The Howie Carr Show, conservative commentator Ann Coulter shocked some conservatives when she said she is making 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney her favorite for the 2016 Republican contest. Last month in an interview on CBS’s Face the Nation, Romney himself ruled out the possibility of a 2016 run and said he was instead focused on who to get behind in that contest. Coulter, however, wishes otherwise. “Well, don´t tell him but I´m planning on giving Mitt Romney a little more time to rest -- flying out, kidnapping him and depriving him of sleep, food and

It´s the end of an era: David Letterman announced Thursday that he´s retiring from CBS´ "Late Show" sometime next year. He made that announcement during the taping of his program this afternoon. The late-night talk show host, who will celebrate his 67th birthday next week, made his debut on the "Late Show" on Aug. 30, 1993. Letterman got his television start in 1978 on the CBS variety series "Mary," starring Mary Tyler Moore. Months later, he paid his first visit to "The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson" -- marking the first of 22 appearances. He also guest-hosted "Tonight" numerous times.

Do you think members of Congress are overpaid or underpaid? Most likely you’d go with the former, but Democratic congressman Jim Moran argues it’s actually the latter. In an interview with CQ Roll Call, Moran says, “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid.” The House recently took up a bill to freeze members’ paychecks, placing another halt on the annual cost-of-living pay increases they would normally get and keeping annual salary at $174,000. Moran believes that this is the wrong way to go, not necessarily talking about himself in particular, but saying there

The human kindling that makes up the flammable Republican base may soon burst into flames, again. Portions of that excitable cohort are looking — some with fawn-like eyes filled with hurt, others with sparks shooting from eyes narrowed like gun slits — askance at other Republicans urging Jeb Bush to seek the 2016 presidential nomination. A candidacy by Florida’s former governor would be desirable. But if Republicans want to avoid intra-party carnage, they should be very careful about doing what The Post recently reported: “Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft

According to a report via BuzzFeed’s Evan McMorris-Santoro, President Barack Obama requested the opportunity to address the nation in prime time on the major broadcast networks on Tuesday night to announce that the Affordable Care Act had reached 7 million enrollees. Those networks did not, however, accommodate the White House’s request. “Three sources familiar with the request confirmed the White House asked for the prime time slot in their effort both to emphasize a bright moment following the challenging roll out and, more important, to try to reintroduce the country to a law that remains unpopular,”

President Barack Obama contended that the government did not “make a hard sell” for Obamacare, despite his administration spending nearly $700 million to promote the law. “We didn’t make a hard sell,” Obama said in the Rose Garden on Tuesday, praising the 7.1 million sign ups for the Affordable Care Act. “We didn’t have billions of dollars of commercials like some critics did.” However, last July the Associated Press reported that Obamacare’s marketing campaign would cost at least $684 million. Taxpayer funding went to all 50 states in efforts to encourage people to enroll, including nearly $28 million for the

At a press conference to push legislation to raise the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) criticized industrialists David and Charles Koch, calling them “shadow billionaires” who use their wealth to “rig our political system.” Reid’s sharp comments come on a day when the Wall Street Journal published a commentary written by Charles Koch, in which he described the brothers’ decision to get involved in politics to preserve the individual freedom and free markets that he said are the pillars of the American republic. “These two men are a pair of shadow billionaires spending
