Chris Matthews: Lovin’ That Storm

Coming in the final week of a hotly contested election, Superstorm Sandy was a major political boost for U.S. President Barack Obama.  While it’s unclear just how much of an electoral edge the storm provided, it clearly afforded Obama an opportunity to be perceived as commander-in-chief while at the same time relegating his “Republican” rival Mitt Romney on the sidelines.

The storm also buried a controversy over the Obama administration’s handling of a terrorist attack on Americans (including an Ambassador) in Libya – a story that we still can’t believe was swept so completely under the rug.

Anyway, in celebrating Obama’s reelection liberal MSNBC host Chris Matthews paid Hurricane Sandy its due …

“I’m so glad we had that storm last week because I think the storm was one of those things – no, politically I should say. Not in terms of hurting people. The storm brought in possibilities for good politics,” Matthews said.

So glad?

Earlier in the evening, Matthews derided Americans who supported third party candidates in the 2012 election as “idiots” and people who “don’t know how the system works.”

Chris Matthews is most interesting to watch when he’s drunk on air. It’s better than the Daily Show sometimes.

Nölff November 7, 2012 at 10:19 am

I think Dianne Sawyer was drunk last night.

There should be a news program where the anchors are sloshed and the reporters are high. Say what you want, but it’s still better than Jersey Shore.

Chris Matthews is one sick man. “I’m so glad we had that storm last week.” Are you kidding me?? People died!! Families are displaced!! Life long homes are lost along with all their treasures. What kind of person says things like this???? SICK, SICK, SICK

Guero November 7, 2012 at 12:59 pm

Not near as sick as the wingnuts’ hero, Junior Bush, who started a war on false pretenses.

harley November 7, 2012 at 1:38 pm

At least he is honest. Politics is everything for him. More important than the lives and sufferings of others.

Eyeswideopen November 7, 2012 at 1:39 pm

Yeah stick that head farther up your ass and pull out some useless irrelevant comment that has nothing to do with the subject! Stay cool buddy!

and thank goodness other meaningless wars were fought so Whoban-Two-Gureo can post on fits. Go suck a pota-john dry

Smirks November 7, 2012 at 10:41 am

Matthews is a tool.

CUvinny November 7, 2012 at 11:10 am

Yea, Chris was pretty delirious at that point. He was on air almost non stop from 6am to 2am.

Ridiculous statement either way

SparkleCity November 7, 2012 at 4:18 pm

I used to watch Chris regularly and every now & then he pulls a boner. If indeed this is not taken out of context, he should apologize.

Maybe Mika Brezenski will slap him around.

Gotta love that Mika!!! = Looks,brains & class!!!

She’s the main reason I watch “Morning Joe” Joe should shut up and let Mika do the talking.

Lately, I’m watching “Imus in the Morning” more. It is a better morning show, the skits are funny,good guests and Warner Wolf giving the sports news. I have fond memories of Warner Wolf when he was on CBSs’ morning show 20-30 years ago>>>”Let’s go to the video tape!!!” & “Dianne Sawyer was at the game”!!!

Anything’s better than that Fox drivel……….

BigT November 8, 2012 at 6:15 am

Don’t Lie you F^&*in Idiot…Matthews can say anything he wants (just likie FITS)…And You Mind Dumb FOOLS will march in Zombie Lockstep…

Stupid LOVES Stupid…it’s how you keep Going after Stupid Decision after Stupid Decision….

You DESERVE Chris Mattews, like you idiots Deserve this Obama Depression that’s getting reddy to ream you up the @$$…

Jesus Christ, Sparkle City, Imus died 7 years ago. And the last time he was funny was never.

SparkleCity November 8, 2012 at 1:40 pm

1. BigT: Whatever……………

2. Silvio: Imus LOOKS dead but he’s very much alive. I wasn’t saying Imus is funny but his cohorts that lampoon celebreties are like Limbaugh,Paula Dean,Larry King, etc. are.
And again, I enjoy watching/hearing Warner Wolf – it brings back fond memories of when he was on CBS YEARS ago.

All in all, Imus in the Morning is a good show. It’s on Fox Business and it is the only show on Fox news I watch for more than 10 minutes

Silvio Dante November 8, 2012 at 2:25 pm

To each his own, Sparkle…I’ve just had a lifetime of dislike for him. Back when his show was turned up loud on our elementary school bus. Then he got buried and sent to irrelevant town when Howard Stern exploded.

And I grew up with Warner Wolf and have fond memories…that I can agree with you. If you took the Giants and 31 points…YOU LOST!

Old Bike Dude November 8, 2012 at 6:00 am

He was all humble, contrite, and apologetic last night. He definitely screwed the pooch with those comments.

BigT November 8, 2012 at 6:12 am

What is WORSE…Obama’s got it now..and EVERY Reasonable Conservative (whio makes the country work) is done. We’ve had enough…

The MEDIA gave you their FAILURE in Cheif again. So the FAILURE is yours…We’ll let you have it…

Investors are running away…and smart people (who got rich because they are smart) are moving funds AWAY from the the Obama Tax Machine…

One good thing about the Obama Recession was that Government CUT spending, because it had no revenue…

Now: It’s YOURS…ALL YOURS…we’re out…And the media can’t stand between a Depression and Obama…


notagain November 8, 2012 at 7:40 am

What amazing drivel.

BigT November 8, 2012 at 12:37 pm

You hope it’s Drivel, you Brain-Dead Piece of $#!*….

But Haley cutting the arts, and government workers getting laid off..it’s happened over and over…state to state. We’re gettign what we want thanks to Obama’s Depression…

You have F^&*ed up the economy so much, Obama (the government) is weaker and weaker by the day…

And I rhink the GOP House has handed the mess over to him, and told That ignorant BASTARD to LEAD…knowing that all he knows how to do is Fail…

You stupid Some Beeches are SCREWED….

On a channel that actually gives a piece of garbage like Al Sharpton a forum, Chris Matthews is still able to prove he is the #1 assclown on MSNBC.

SparkleCity November 8, 2012 at 1:54 pm

As long as Mika is on Morning Joe, I’ll watch Morning Joe and I don’t care what anyone thinks about MSNBC.

I hardly watch anything else on MSNBC but I do think Rachael Maddow would make a good bartender. Anybody that takes making/drinking an Old Fashioned seriously is alright by me.

Plus she backed IAVA and told Glenn Beck to back off when that asshole hinted that IAVA was some kind of liberal veteran’s organization – which it ain’t – it’s non-partisian.

I am a IAVA member as well as a VFW member. If anyone reading FITSNews served in Iraq or Afghanistan, they should IAVA check it out.

SparkleCity November 8, 2012 at 1:58 pm

Ment to post “they should check IAVA out”

sorry for the syntax error!!!!
