The back-to-back juxtaposition of the sentences "I forgot he was black tonight for an hour" with "He's gone a long way to become a leader in this country" is offensive to me. It implies that his blackness was what he had to take the long way to overcome to be a leader. Terrible.

Matthews is a Dem. You are not allowed to be offended.

Criminy.

Can you imagine what would've happened had Hannity or Beck said this?

Though don't be so quick to assume Matthews with get off scott free. He's been fairly critical of the Democratic establishment over the last several weeks; they may be looking for a little payback here.

I agree with you on this.

I also disagree with Matthews. I don't really ever think about the fact that he's black when he's speaking, but regardless of that I don't think he's grown much as a leader at all.

Not only that, but to me it's almost like saying he wasn't elected on merit alone, but because of his race.
Like, "before, he was the Black Guy we elected as President in a feel good election. Now I take him more seriously."

..says the guy too blind to see he's being pimped by the Dems. I'll be impressed when Jesse and Al are out protesting in front of Planned Parenthood, which has killed more black babies than the KKK could've ever dreamed about.

MLK's grandfather and father were Republicans. MLK was a Republican until JFK got him out of jail to procure minority votes...they've been using them ever since.

Matthews – what a partisan turd. When Obamao talks Matthews gets shivers up his legs. The guy has a man-crush on Obamao that is now affecting his eyesight. If our next president is a Blaxican that can run two or three sentences together, Mathews’ will probably go into a full-fledged spasmgasm coma.

Why is it that Libs always bring up peoples race and then accuse conservative of being racist? It’s because they are racist. They see color not potential. They see that skin color as a disability.

What a bunch of fucking assholes.

So you think we should judge each person individually, regardless of race, and yet you judge the entire set of people that don't support Obama and paint them as racists based on a small sampling of customers and acquaintances.

It's intellectually convenient to just lable everyone as racists so you don't have to debate against their points...actually better put as intellectually cowardly.

Nah, he didn't need to pay for the election, the MSM gave it to him for free.

He used his Party to manipulate the media.

I hate him because he's a socialist or a pussy that allows himself to be controlled by socialists.

So I'm sitting here on a Saturday morning flipping channels and low and behold I find 'The Chris Matthew's Show' on my local NBC affiliate.

Not his MSNBC mess, this one is half an hour where he does a Mclaughlin Group style show with other 'journalists'.

You should tune in if you get a chance sometime. It's a hoot. This episode they've decided the best thing for the country is if Obama and the dems rammed through health care and the republicans are a bunch of big bad babies because they won't go along with it.

Also, there was another Palin/Fey clip......like that's relevant the week of the SOTU.

Seriously, if a university journalism class is looking to teach bias, one or two Matthews dvd's is all you'd need.
