• You Won’t Believe Why Chris Matthews Is Confused

    A befuddled Chris Matthews wondered why so many people hate the “moderate” Barack Obama on Monday’s edition of Hardball.

    “There is something about African American politicians who get a lot of heat for anything that appears to challenge the unquestioned greatness of the country and we do have real race problems, which came to fore when came to fore president got elected—they are real,” MSNBC’s Joy Reid said, alluding to the notion that Obama’s critics are racist.

    “They’re out there and people who embody and espouse them and don’t like the idea of a president asserting himself as an African American man using the powers of the presidency and Trump is the perfect leader for them,” she added.

    Matthews agreed with Reid’s assessment.

    “Our poll today, just out this weekend, makes the point, at least in gross terms what you said. Thirty-three percent of this country, across the board, is very negative towards Obama, very negative,” Matthews said, citing the new WSJ/NBC poll.  “Personally, they just don’t like him.”

    “Now, it could be all those reasons. He turned out to be more of an aggressive president, more of a Democratic-advocate president, a black-advocate president,” Matthews contemplated. “I think [Obama’s] been moderate, myself.”

    Matthews claimed the 33 percent are hostile towards the president and basically saying, “I don’t want this guy in the world. I don’t want him anywhere here.”

    It’s no surprise that Matthews, a hyper-partisan Democrat, considers Obama a moderate, Matthews sees himself as a “centrist.”
