The way Chris Matthews has been talking I think he forgot to watch the parade in 2009.


He's talking like he has never seen President Obama and the family ever acting natural.

What a bunch of BS.

1. My husband switched to CNN

He usually comes home from work and loves to watch Chris, but I heard him say... he is just babbling on and on.
LOL - then he watched CNN and enjoyed the fashion comments about Michelle's attire.

I can hear Rev. Al on... so I guess he switched back.

It's really driving me crazy!

13. It's nicorrette, I think.

I have no idea how to spell that word, but Prez does smoke, so I would think it is that kind of gum.

Those shots drove me nuts, too.

And someone should tell Michelle to plate her fork between bites. I could not believe what I was seeing.

17. I'm surprised the ghost of my Mother didn't give them both a poke...

and a lesson in etiquette! I'm glad they were relaxed but someone is going to use those shots tomorrow!

18. I almost started a thread about the Obamas' table presence.

But I knew I would be drawn-and-quartered.

How the heck do people reach such high stations in life without learning - at the very least - proper table etiquette?

I was once in the 'presence' of one Richard Cheney at a steak house in Dallas. He ate like an animal, arms on table and devouring his meal while chewing with mouth open. I could not believe what I was seeing, and I am no prude.

Like you, my Mother taught me better.

19. And we were not "La Di Da"

Just regular folk...but chewing gum in public was only acceptable for very young children and table manners were imperative. Elbows off the table!

20. Cheney is scum. I had a billionaire friend who hated him, here is her story...

So I was hanging out on Main Street when a billionaire friend stopped by..


She had just gotten off the phone with the White House and she was totally pissed off.

A little background on my friend:
She was born in Persia, educated in Switzerland and England, and is a true Citizen of the World in every regard.
Her family was very much involved with the regime of the Shah and very successful in global commerce.
When Khomeini came to power, everyone in her family fled except for her because her husband (a nuclear physicist) had altered her passport and identification papers and left the country with his secretary.
When my friend got to the airport in Tehran she was immediately arrested and thrown into prison. And there she stayed until her father, who was in Belgium, was able to get in touch with Mehdi Bazargan, the acting Prime Minister.
Bazargan showed up at the prison, demanded her release, took her to the airport and put her on a plane to Paris.
She lost everything she had, tens of millions of dollars.
But she has more than made up for those losses.

So I am sitting at my usual perch on our town's little Main Street. Several of us (and all here would be greatly surprised at the makeup of our little group) meet there daily to solve the problems of the World. Obviously, we aren't doing an adequate job.

Here comes my friend and she is roiling boiling pissed off. I have never seen her angry, she is coolly unflappable.
But the Qana bombings have pushed her over the edge.
She has no dog in the fight, a total realist with incredible insight on Middle Eastern affairs.
So she called the White House. Knowing her like I do, I am sure she spoke to someone in the office of the Prez or Vice. She is not the kind to call a switchboard and has access to people at every level of any government that counts on a global level. Her husband's obit was a full page in the NY Times, if that makes my point any clearer.

I could go on and on, but I won't.

Here is the punch line:
She vowed to dedicate the rest of her life making sure that Bush, Cheney, Rice, Wolfowitz, Feith, et al, have nothing but misery for the rest of their lives after leaving office. She intends to insure that they will never be able to travel outside the States and she plans on funding a full-court press on the World Stage and Courts.

I have never heard her utter a political statement in all the time I have known her.
And now this.

Also, I have known many powerful, wealthy, and tough people in my life.
Of all of them, she is the last person I would want gunning for my ass.

4. He needs new talking points *STAT*

Between nicorette to President Obama's ability to "dance", he's run out of things to say. I was in the kitchen when he made the Beyonce comments, so I didn't hear them all. I'm glad Rev. Al is on with substance.

7. I seldom if ever...

... watch Chris Matthews anymore.

Don't like his interview style.
Poses questions in support of his preconcieved idea
Badgers his guests until he gets the answer that supports his arguement

I can understand badgering a guest that won't answer a question or tries to evade the question, but not if it just isn't the answer he is looking for.

10. He thinks he's King Shit

 

you can just tell by his demeanor with his colleages that he thinks he's all that and a truck load of chips in the pundit department. Hot air ballon with a few feathers stuck on, that's all he really is.

8. Why does anyone watch that slobbering buffoon?

He's ill informed, emotional, in love with the sound of his own voice and he treats government like some kind of porting event where every issue can be reduced to "liberals" vs "conservatives".

IMO he's every bit as obnoxious as anybody on Fox.

11. Whenever Matthews is on air for a prolonged period, he goes loopy

He has diabetes, so it could be that his blood sugar gets low and he starts to talk nonsense - in his mind waxing poetic, no doubt.

where's Keith when we need him?

Matthews always runs at the mouth...most famously on Election Night 2006. Apparently, he doesn't eat as he should & his blood sugar gets too low.
