25. One of the things Matthews has been saying that is particularly obtuse is his going on and on about
how Obama doesn't have the same "connection" to people as JFK did.

Matthews is from an Irish, Catholic family (as am I). OF COURSE, Catholics and, specifically, Irish Catholics felt a special affinity for JFK. He was the first (and only) Catholic POTUS.

Matthews likes to get a group of rather wealthy, white men or women together and then say dumb-ass crap about there not being "a special connection".

I was happy to see someone Tweet at him that - You know who feels a special affinity for this President, Chris - minorities. African-Americans and other minorities.

I actually don't think that is exclusive though because I feel that way too but am not a member of those groups.

The fact that Tweety does NOT UNDERSTAND that basic concept just emphasizes how truly CLUELESS he can be sometimes.
