Chris Matthews Rips Guest for Historical Ignorance and then Says USS Cole Attack Occurred Under George Bush
Ever wonder what is wrong with the Main stream media? Look no further than MSNBC’s Hard Ball and Chris Matthews as he bashes a guest for not knowing his Neville Chamberlain history and appeasement … “Peace for our time”.
However, as The Newsbusters point out … those that throw stones should not live in glass houses. Or at least work for the MSM where their grasp on historical facts is not among the best either. After ridiculing a Hard Ball guest for ignorance, Chris Mathews then says, “Wasn’t the USS Cole under Bush? I mean, I don’t know what I’m talking about here.” Ah, no Chris … you scholar you … the attack of the USS Cole took place under Clinton on October 12, 2000.

Funny, we do not see Chris Matthews ripping into and ridiculing Obama for thinking that there were 57 States. But of course, its MSNBC’s duty to carry the water for Barack Obama. The Obama camp and MSM are in an uproar over GWB’s comments in Israel regarding appeasement of terrorists and Hitler as one in the same.
“We have heard this foolish delusion before. As Nazi tanks crossed into Poland in 1939, an American senator declared: ‘Lord, if I could only have talked to Hitler, all this might have been avoided.’ We have an obligation to call this what it is—the false comfort of appeasement, which has been repeatedly discredited by history.”
One knows you have struck a nerve when Moonbat nation cries foul. This is a real issue for people to ponder for the Fall election. Giving terrorists clout is a form of appeasement. Why would anyone give the Iranian leader credibility by meeting with a US President? What could Mahmoud Ahmadinejad say in person to Obama that his actions have not already shown?
