• Chris Matthews Spazzed Out After Obama Presser: He “Acts Like There’s No Other World Out There”

    It’s fair to say that nobody in America is taking the Democrats’ historic defeats in last night’s election harder than MSNBC host Chris Matthews. After a bewildered Obama showed just how dislocated from reality he really is, Matthews lost it, again, on live TV.

    He was visibly fuming because President Obama’s post-election press conference was devoid of anything resembling remorse or comprehension of the fact that millions of Americans went to the polls yesterday and rejected his vision for the country. And it was Obama’s dogged ambition to still go ahead and grant executive amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants that sent Matthews head first over the deep end.

    “The people, if you look at the polling, their problem is illegal immigration,” Matthews said. “He says, ‘I’m going to fix the problem.’ He doesn’t mean he’s gonna stop illegal immigration. He’s not going to do anything to stop illegal hiring, which is the magnet for illegal immigration, really. He’s going to basically say, ‘I’m going to deal with them by giving them green cards.’”

    Matthews, oddly enough, might be making more sense (for a change) than he thinks.

    Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions said the wave of GOP victories was “a dramatic affirmation of the policies our GOP candidates campaigned on: controlling spending, balancing the budget, repealing Obamacare, unleashing American energy, and boosting wages through pro-worker reforms.” Sen. Sessions has been the leading legislator standing against Obama’s long-promised executive amnesty.

    And indeed, at today’s press conference Obama promised to sign some sort of executive amnesty plan “before the end of the year.” He said his administration is “going to take whatever lawful actions that I can take.”

    “What bothered me about him tonight—he keeps talking about common ground,” Matthews said. “Damnit, there’s very little common ground between left and right! But what there is, is compromise.”

    “There’s something in this guy that just plays to his constituency, and acts like there’s no other world out there,” he added. “And that’s going to be a collision at the end of this year like you’ve never seen. I do believe it’s will be waving a red flag in front of the bull. I think Mitch McConnell’s headed for a fight with the president.”
