In 2008, Chris Matthews made some “news” for a reaction he had while reporting the election coverage of the 2008 election. Specifically, Chris Matthews was so excited that Obama was elected that he experienced a “tingling thrill up his leg.”
Now, 6 years later and following the largest defeat in political history since Truman or Hoover, depending upon who you read, Chris Matthews seems pretty fed up with the President. The President, “misses the main point of politics” as Matthews says and continues, “There is something in this guy who just plays to his constituency and acts like there is no other world out there.”
Wow. I guess the tingling feeling is gone and replaced with the awful truth of reality: that this President doesn’t know what he is doing.
