It seems moonbat propagandist Chris Matthews did not much enjoy the debate last night. Coming completely unglued, he raged,
“I don’t know what he was doing out there. He had his head down, he was enduring the debate rather than fighting it. Romney, on the other hand, came in with a campaign. He had a plan, he was going to dominate the time, he was going to be aggressive, he was going to push the moderator around, which he did effectively, he was going to relish the evening, enjoying it. …
“[Obama] was like, ‘Oh an hour and half? I think I can get through this thing. And I don’t even look at this guy.’ Whereas Romney — I love the split-screen — staring at Obama, addressing him like prey. He did it just right. ‘I’m coming at an incumbent. I got to beat him. You’ve got to beat the champ and I’m going to beat him tonight.’ … What was Romney doing? He was winning.”
Absurdly, Matthews proclaimed that Obama would do better if he withdrew even farther from the real world by watching the fawning coverage of him on MSNBC. In the process, he admitted not only his network’s bias, but its viciousness:
“We have our knives out. We go after the people and the facts. What was he doing tonight? He went in there disarmed.”
That’s because a debate is a battle of wits.
Sounds like Michelle Bachmann was right when she suggested that maybe the thrill up Matthews’s leg isn’t quite so tingly anymore.
