The issue is foreign contributions to US organizations, like the Chamber of Commerce. Not only does Matthews accept the premise that the Chamber is indeed using foreign money to push for its favorite candidates, but then accuses Rove of being one of those guys who wear white … well you tell me.
The conversation begins with a Matthews rant against “big business” that puts profits before people and cites his business that lays off camera men to make an extra buck. Other than his utter lack of understanding that without profits there is no money to pay his exorbitant salary, what comes next is crazy.
David Corn and Chris Cillizza of the Washington Post kick around the White House charge that Karl Rove, Ed Gillespie, and the Chamber of Commerce are “threatening democracy” by funneling contributions into the political campaign. Listen as Matthews accepts it as fact and then takes his whack at Matthews. White uniforms? What is he talking about? Did he start to say something else?
No proof, no knowledge of business, and a charge that makes your head spin. Just another day on Hardball.
