let's talk about chris matthews

How about that debate "moderator" the other night? Wasn't Chris Matthews a fine, impartial choice to moderate the debate? Good grief! Why did NBC choose Matthews? Were Jimmy Carter and Hugo Chavez unavailable? I'll list a few of the "highlights" from Matthew's performance.

1. Matthews said to Giuliani that all of the other GOP candidates seemed to be "relentlessly pro-life," but that his impression was that Giuliani's views were more "nuanced." Wow! Do you think Matthews would ever have called Hillary Clinton "relentlessly pro-choice?" Sam Brownback believes that a woman should have the right to choose during the first 12 weeks of a pregnancy, but he is against partial-birth abortion. Would Matthews call that kind of thinking nuanced? Apparently not, because Mayor Rudy was the only one of the 10 who Matthews "complimented" with the liberal tag of "nuanced." This was just one of many examples where Matthews ridiculed the GOP during the event.
2. Matthews asked Romney about Roman Catholic bishops who refuse Holy Communion to pro-choice politicians in their church. Matthews asked Romney what he would do as President about this situation. Before we get to Romney's answer, let's take a close look at the question. Chris Matthews, a radical liberal if there ever was one, was actually asking a potential President of the United States if he would force Catholic bishops to serve communion to everyone. That is an amazing question! The Catholic Church says that abortion is a sin, and that anyone who promotes or supports abortion is a sinner. Comrad Matthews wants the President of the United States to drop the full weight of the Federal Government on top of those bishop's heads and force them to get with the program. Wow! Somewhere in Hell, Josef Stalin is smiling! Romney's response was perfect--"I don't say anything to Roman Catholic bishops. They can do whatever the heck they want." I'm not a big Romney fan, but that answer was outstanding! Matthews answered back that Catholic bishops were actually trying to influence public policy. Horrors! Apparently Comrad Matthews has never read Jefferson's letter to the Danbury Baptists. Or the 1st Amendment.
3. Matthews asked the candidates if having Bill Clinton back in the White House would be good for America. Maybe I'm confused, but I didn't know Slick Willie was running for President. The question was so ridiculous that Romney actually said, "You've got to be kidding me!" That question ranks right up there with the Karl Rove question--"If you are elected president, would you have Karl Rove in your administration?" These questions are just plain silly, but they do illustrate a larger point. Liberals lack the capacity for serious, logical thought. The liberal blogs and the liberal TV talk shows were all atwitter about the various GOP answers to these "vital" questions. Oh, how I wish that liberals were so obsessed with more serious issues, like the war against radical Islam and the murder of unborn babies!
4. How about NBC News putting Nancy Reagan right in front, sitting next to Arnold The Governator, and then having Matthews asking the candidates about federal funding for embryonic stem cell research. He even asked the candidates to look at Mrs. Reagan as they answered. Good grief! The word "despicable" comes to mind.

All of the GOP candidates are to be commended for sharing the stage with a rabid left-wing kook like Chris Matthews. They all had to know that Matthews would not behave appropriately as the "moderator," and of course Matthews was true to form. But none of the candidates whined or cried or tried to duck out of the event. They stood on the stage and they answered all the questions. Let's compare to the Democrats who were soooo scared of the Big, Bad FOX News Network. Here's a very simple question: If a presidential candidate tells you that they have The Right Stuff (that's cojones in Spanish) to confront the world's terrorist leaders of Islamofascism, but they're scared of Brit Hume, do you feel comfortable voting for them?

Or is it because Romney's wife was a doner to Planned Parenthood and Romney was previously pro-choice?

What sayeth you Hondo (who may be a liar depending whether thoust honored thy word and did afixeth one said bumper sticker)?

No, it's because Matthews is a liberal, and liberals don't believe in the 1st Amendment. Better find a tin-foil hat that's 1/2 size bigger, HeeHaw. The one you're wearing is constricting blood flow to the brain.
