    Discussing the body language of McCain and Obama, Chris was talking to Nora O,Donnel and the other guy with the little beard.

    At the end of the discussion he said, "It's like Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd. Bugs just keeps smiling while getting Elmer Fudd all upset."

    I have zero respect for Chris Matthews ray and it surprises me he can even find the office in the morning. The man has lost all of his credentials in my mind wih his blatent support of Obama in this race. Watching him is rather like watching Hannity and calling it news. Now what would be good is to see a show with both of those two hacks on at the same time and then you might have something close to fair and balanced. I wonder if he is going to be able to still walk if Obama wins as that tingle in his leg might take over his whole body. Watching Chris Matthews is like watching Howard Dean telling me how fair and balanced he is. I will pass thank you as well as pass on the rest of the media hacks who's first job it is , is to support a cause then report then news.

    Gee, maybe next time the debate moderator could be Rush Limbaugh. He is sooooo unbiased, isn't he?

    What part of my posting gave you the impression that I had any more respect for Limbaugh as a newsman than Matthews? A Hack is a Hack no matter what agenda they are spewing out.

    Whenever I see a Bugs Bunny cartoon I get a tingle up my leg.

    Mathews openly supported Bush against Gore in 2000. Did that bother you?

    Mathews has never been a news analyst. He's a pundit. Republicans generally liked him when he was slamming the Clintons, and supporting Bush against Gore.

    Oh well.

    The whole body language thing has zero relevance when you're talking about a young dude with no physical ailments or disfigurements, and an old guy who is stove up and has many miles on his face.

    Give it a rest. This is almost as stupid as the spastic defaming of the poor slob who happened to ask a question that showed Obama up for the socialist he is.

    Chris Matthews worked for JFK. He makes absolutely no effort to pretend he doesn't have preferences. He doesn't moderate the debates. And I do think, to him, he's found the next JFK. Doesn't mean he's saying anything untrue, but it does mean that his observations are colored by that. Same as Joe Scarborough. Joe is clearly in McCain's camp. But he tries his best to not be offensive or rude to anyone else. Doesn't make me respect either of them less. In fact, I love watching Scarborough. Don't mind Matthews, though he's not my favorite. I like watching Rachel Maddow, especially when she and Pat Buchanan are facing off.

    Let me put it to you this way, I have not had any illusion as to who and what Chris Matthews is and was. My issue with Matthews goes beyond just his general unprofessionalism it goes into the realm of what the News division at NBC has done to G.E. stock in general and how the higher-ups at G.E. have allowed this division amongst others to continually lose money. Chris Matthews is just systemic of the media in general and why they all feel the need now to editorialize instead of reporting the news. However when someone has a vested interest in G.E. and constantly see's this one division lose money year after year after year and NOTHING is done about it. One tends to NOT accept anything that is put up by those very same people.
