Matthews: The thrill is gone

As Campaign Spot’s Jim Geraghty said this morning on the show … it just hasn’t been the same since he had his leg amputated. Another Chris Classic.

Chris is trying to explain to Andrea Mitchell why Obama’s ratings are in the tank. As Chris says, he brought it on himself by being elitist. I like the little argument over Obama’s use of the teleprompter. The lefties are so loss. Now this is the change I hoped for, heh?


AP at HotAir has a great take on this one.

Give him credit, though, at least for recognizing that The One should be doing less talking and more listening. Granted, the people he’d say we should be listening to are those who think the big problem with O-Care is that it lacks a public option, but he’s at least in the neighborhood of the problem here. For further reading in the “messaging” vein — and you’ll be hearing a lot of this on Wednesday, no doubt — see Tina Brown’s meditation today on how Obama can change course. Hint: More robust White House arts-and-concerts initiatives in the grand style of Jackie Kennedy. That’ll quiet these wingnuts down a bit.

    Turncoat..??? Truthteller..???

    Naahhh…this is all about his viewers, the ones who don't just watch for right wing talking points and funny clips, not completely tuning him out.

    The "Left" just doesn't get it.  Those Liberal Socialists Progressive Weenies seem to think that what made America great is a big Government.  They are sooooooooo wrong.

    America is great because the free will and spirit of Americans is unchained.  The "Left" and their progressive movement will destroy America.

    The "Left" will have to remove "The Constitution" from my cold dead fingers, when I run out of ammo.

    I guess Chrissy will save a fortune on dry cleaning, since he doesn't seem to wet himself at the very mention of Øbama's name!


    Maybe the truth has set Chrissy free….
