Call this post the “Education of Chris Matthews”, or maybe, why progressives don’t excel at math. Or maybe this is just frustration and denial at the ultimate demise of socialism. I am not sure. But one thing is for sure, Mark Halperin, now an MSNBC analyst, won’t last very long with his new employer if he keeps challenging conventional lefty wisdom. It is truly an awesome moment.
Two clips for you to watch. In the first Halperin calls out Matthews on the Democrat spin that Ryan’s budget will throw grandma under the bus. “We’re not having the adult conversation we should be having in the media.”
The second clip is the money clip. Halperin desperately tries to explain to Matthews why Medicare is going broke and why the lofty promises can’t be kept. “No, the government will provide the health care to seniors it has promised to provide them.” Period. So there. It’s pointless. To lefties, there is always more money. Oh brother. It’s like talking to a wall.
The road to armageddon. Just as a refresher course, read the SOS’ post from last night.
