Chris Matthews: Is challenging Obama unconstitutional? | WashingtonExaminer.com Matthews played a video clip of the exchange, in which Romney accused Obama of cutting the number of oil and gas permits awarded on federal lands: ROMNEY: How much did you cut them by? OBAMA: Im happy to answer the question. ROMNEY: All right. And it is I dont think anyone really believes that youre a person whos going to be pushing for oil and gas and coal. [Gestures.] Youll get your chance in a moment. Im still speaking. OBAMA: Well ROMNEY: And the answer is I dont believe people think that`s the case because ROMNEY: that wasnt the question. OBAMA: OK. ROMNEY: That was a statement. After the clip ended, Matthews seemed appalled. I dont think [Romney] understands the Constitution of the United States, Matthews said. Hes the president of the United States. You dont say, Youll get your chance. Now, its entirely possible for one to think Romney was rude to Obama during that moment in the debate. A president is of course entitled to some deference, and some people undoubtedly thought Romney was insufficiently deferential. Others thought Romneys behavior was entirely acceptable. But just for the record, there is nothing in the Constitution barring one from saying Youll get your chance to the President of the United States no matter what his supporters on MSNBC say. ************************* So what is Chris saying ? That Romey can't call his man-god out when he's lying ?
