Chris Matthews FINALLY sours on Obama.

From the link, "Yes, you read that right: The MSNBC host who in 2008 felt a "thrill going up my leg" after hearing Obama speak has grown disenchanted. Tonight's episode of Hardball saw Matthews delivering a rare, unforgiving grilling of the president as severe as anything that might appear on Fox News."

noseatbelt, with Obama supporters believing is seeing.

Rational arguments cannot change attitudes that were not rationally formed in the first place.

ac, The truly sad thing is, that so many do believe everything obama and friends say. I look at his approval numbers, and ask myself, what in the world do they see in obama? I keep thinking, that they will take off the blinders, and see obama for what he is. A very bad president.

AC-302, "He doesn't even have the creativity to lie to Americans very well"

It's like listening to a four-year-old trying to lie his way out of a problem.

AC-302, >>Does anyone else think that this fool's excuse is finally worn out? He doesn't even have the creativity to lie to Americans very well.<<
*****
How can he lie about this? Its his responsibility to know what his subordinates are doing. When a wrong is done, corrective action is administered as soon as possible.

Maybe instead of flying off to golf junkets, he should tour our employees, canvass upper management as to where problems exist and fix or at least mollify problems.

All told though, it is the grossly misinformed or extremely devious electorate who allow people who have no or very limited business leadership experience to even reach the position of candidacy for an executive role.

Unfortunately, this failing method of choosing our executives has been picked up by the Republican Party.

A short time after I had been promoted to dept head in a job I had something happened that should not have happened. My boss asked me what happened, why it happened and what was I going to do to make sure it never happened again.

I said I didn't know about it. He got very upset and forcefully told me that as long as I worked for him as a supervisor every single thing that happened in my department was my responsibility and that if I didn't know what was happening in the area I was responsible for that he would fire me and find someone who would and could do the job.

That was at a "lower level job" Why should the same standards not apply to those in higher positions?

You know, Obama keeps going back to "I...I just didn't know about it. This is the first I heard of it!" as his stock excuse.

Does anyone else think that this fool's excuse is finally worn out? He doesn't even have the creativity to lie to Americans very well.

Does anyone here believe that neither Holder nor Obama knew about the broad AP wiretaps? That decision HAD to have come through holder, and Obama had to have known about it. Something that broad and deep had to be by order of Obama via Holder. So either BOTH men were negligent, or their lying through their teeth to the American People. Either way, they're incompetent or power mad and need to be relieved of their jobs - both men.

Democrats are finally realizing that Obama is a terrible president. It is hard to admit that you were wrong with your vote.

Chris Matthews is right. He does not like doing the leg work, but, that does not mean that this President is not a good President.

Woodrow Wilson was similar. I always thought this President was similar to WW.

WES03, "Is his show actually being watched?"

Don't know. The only things I see of it are his more bizarre comments that make the news.

Matthews is quitting his Sunday show but has signed a long term contract for Hardball.

I had read recently that Mathews Sunday morning show was going to be cancelled. If so, this may make him a little more interesting to his/any viewing aduience.
It may be old Chrissy's livelihood at stake.

On Tuesday's program, Matthews similarly called Obama "a ship with the engine off." This is one of those few times I can count on one hand where I agree with him.
