A source tells me the MSNBC floor director figured this would happen, which is why he wisely put down the splat mat and drool bucket underneath Chris’s area at the desk before the show:
Chris Matthews, host of MSNBC’s “Hardball,” raved about a speech President Obama made to American troops during his surprise visit to Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan.
“I imagine being a soldier over there — this is what you want to hear,” Matthews said, as if he was wearing military fatigues.
Matthews also likened the leadership of President Obama to that of Henry V of England.
“It was right out of Henry V actually, a touch of Barry, in this case, in the night for those soldiers risking their lives over there,” Matthews said.
“Well that’s great stuff. I was so proud of the President there, I must say. This has nothing to do with partisanship; this is the Commander-in-Chief meeting with the troops,” Chris Matthews gushed on his program today.
Did Henry V address his men by saying “I’m in the house”?
“This has nothing to do with partisanship; this is the Commander-in-Chief meeting with the troops.” Which is why Matthews heaped praise upon President Bush whenever he visited the troops in Afghanistan. Wait, I never heard Tingles do that, did you?
