Chris Matthews Loses It Post Debate

I’m not going to bother with a long debate wrap-up, since this is a crosspost. John Hawkins (and many others) have done a fine, fine job in digesting the debate. I will say one thing: I listened to most of the debate on the radio, and it was somewhat like the Nixon-Kennedy debate, where those who watched TV thought Kennedy won, and those who listened on radio thought Nixon had won. Why? Because on TV Nixon looked awful, because of bad makeup and him getting over a cold, so he looked pasty and had bags under his eyes, while Kennedy looked marvelous! On radio, I’d give Obama B- (Mitt an A), while when I watch the video recaps, Obama gets a D+. He just didn’t look that engaged, he was looking down, he looked jumpy.

Anyhow, here’s Matthews

(Daily Caller) “Where was Obama tonight?” Matthews said. “He should watch – well not just ‘Hardball,’ Rachel, he should watch you, the Reverend Al, he should watch Lawrence. He would learn something about this debate. There’s a hot debate going on in this country – know where it’s being held? Here on this network is where we’re having the debate. We have our knives out. We go after the people and the facts. What was he doing tonight? He went in there disarmed. He was, ‘Wait an hour and a half, I think I can get through this thing, I don’t even want to look at this guy.’ Whereas Romney – I loved the split screen, staring at Obama, addressing him like the prey. He did it just right. I’m coming at an incumbent. I’ve got to beat him. You got to beat the champ and I’m going to beat him tonight. And I don’t care what this guy moderator whatever he think he is because I’m going to ignore him. What was Romney doing? He was winning.”

Now we’ll have to see what happens with the next two debates, as well as the VP debate. Perhaps Paul Ryan will bring his crossbow and just put Biden out of his misery early? (Lighten up, a joke)
