Tweety is an asshat, but occasionally he'll have a melodramatic meltdown that makes for damn fine viewing when you're as drunk as he is.

AlwaysRightBoy: Linux_Yes: AlwaysRightBoy: Linux_Yes: AlwaysRightBoy: Tricky dicky Nixon was a statesman.

/and a damn good one despite his failures


no, Dick was a Politician. huge difference.

and Agnew was Nixon's Nixon.


Like him or not, he was our elder statesman for years.

/been there, lived it


yea? i was there and lived it too. i loved the watergate breakin stunt and the FBI tailing of John Lennon that Nixon asked for.

Nixon's closet is chock full of cobwebs.
as are all presidents

Yes, today's President would never think about spying on someone.

/Agnew was a dolt.



no one is asking for perfection. at least make the effort. so many in D.C. don't even make the effort anymore. they don't even try to hide their con because they know how dumb so many Americans are.

You are incorrect. Nixon was a paranoid and bizarre human being, a good politician, but first and foremost, he was a criminal whose lawbreaking was so blatant that he could not even shield himself with the most powerful office in the entire world.

Abraham Lincoln would sh*t blood if he was alive today and saw the state his Party is in an how much it's changed and been bought and paid for by Big Business/Wealthy.

IIRC, the next line was, "You're right! We need more statesmen!"

i'm sensing an incredible amount of butthurt in this threat. my profound insight tells me that the Election loss by the republicans still has their panties in a twist.

they should insert two preparation H's and call me in the morning.

I like Matthews, too, even his weekend show.

I don't much like his yelling over guests, but it's probably what I would do when I asked someone a question that they evade, avoid, or just don't answer. That's one of my biggest gripes about all the politicians, they respond with what they wish they'd been asked instead of ever answering a yes or no question with a yes or no.

I also don't like how he has so many of the same people on all the time, as if these pundits are experts on everything ranging from economy to strategic planning. I could happily go the rest of my life without seeing that woman from Salon ever again.

And, when I want news, I watch BBC or the Newhour.

The main focus for the future of MSNBC should rest heavily on Rachel Maddow and Chris Hayes. More of them, less of Schultz/Sharpton types.

Matthews is fine -- he has a knowledge of history so he can at least put things in to context

but he fails at some basic interview questions -- he seems not study the subjects he interviews
on -- going with whatever cursory knowledge he may already have.

So, if it is interviewing someone on something that happened between 1935 to the present, he can
do pretty well (the Michelle Bachmann questioning which lead to here suggesting some in congress were anti-american):
 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8bT01mC9xSA


that was a reasonable course of questioning (although he hit harder on it the next day when he realized what he had).

This questioning was better (when he was talking with a right wing radio host, Kevin James that couldn't explain the actions of Neville Chamberlain without except in a superficial "talking point" manner with the word "appeasement":

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YK0d8ENS__c

The questioning was reasonable because James was there to defend what had been said by George W Bush on the subject.

Frankly Jon Stewart is a better interviewer than Chris Matthews but Matthews is better than most (on cable news) when it comes to American history.

And at least doesn't make shiat up like Hannity and O'Reily

Schultz is offensive
Sharpton is a bore
and Laurence O'Donnel does little, also.

Maddow is good although I just can't stand here personality (giggles at her own jokes -- come on) but at least she is smart.

Matthews is good -- I've only seen Hayes a couple of times -- i'd rather watch him in the morning than the Train Wreck of Scarborough and Micah
(who generally have nothing useful to add to any subject)

I think Bobby was. It must have difficult for him to discover his dad was mobbed up and funded teamster pension loans at fantastic interest rates.

J.F.K> tried to do good, but there was the baggage
I agree. I think Bobby was really the one who wanted change.
/a damn shame, thinking about those times again

Statesmen don't describe historic occasions in terms of urinating on themselves.

While I do not like Mathews, if that tingling in his leg spreads to his arms, I suggest he see a doctor immediately.

bronyaur1: ManateeGag: Chris Matthews is an asshole.

How many conversations have you had with him?  Or are you just unhappy that he disagrees with what Rush tells you to think?


What the hell does Rush have to do with it?  I dunno about ManateeGag, but I'm still not thrilled with the way he treated Clinton in 2008.

/not necessarily all that thrilled with Hillary in 2008 either
//but that's still no excuse for how Matthews handled it

MSNBC president: Chris MatthewsRachel Maddow is a statesmanwoman.

Fixed; 'cause I'll take Rachel's word over Chris' any day of the week.
