Does Barack Obama’s words no longer send a thrill up the leg of MSNBC media lap dog Chris Matthews?
This Sunday on “The Chris Matthews Show” Matthews broke the cardinal rule of speaking about the Obamamessiah … he actually compared Obama to Jimmy Carter. Via News Busters, Chris Matthews called some of Obama’s recent mistakes “Carteresque.” That’s going to leave a mark. As NewsBusters says, guess Matthews has lost that Obama Lovin’ Feeling.
It’s an unbelievable occurrence when the liberal MSM actually reports on Obama’s short comings and in this case his recent “Carteresque” mistakes like bowing to the Emperor of Japan, having terrorists tried in NYC and going to Asia and getting nada back in return.
When the media turns on Obama, it might get really ugly. I guess it is not just Fox News who questions Obama from time to time.

CHRIS MATTHEWS, HOST: Welcome back. The word these days is optics, visuals, signals. In the Carter presidency, the optics were not exactly robust, and Ronald Reagan rode that to a big victory in 1980. Is the Obama White House sending some Carteresque signals these days? Some see that in the deep bow to the Emperor of Japan, an unforced error say critics. Then there was, there was what happened in China: Obama got nothing in the way of concessions over there in spite of playing the polite visitor. And his effort to speak directly to the Chinese was jammed by the government. Third, that decision to try the terrorists up in that federal court in New York City. Again, nothing that had to be done, and critics say it shows that Obama, his team doesn’t understand this is a war we’re in. David, that’s the question. These optics are everything in a president. Carter used to carry that garment bag over his shoulder. This president is he making mistakes like in China like in Japan?
DAVID IGNATIUS, WASHINGTON POST : I think he is coming across as stiff. He is talking too much sometimes and communicating too little. So the opposite of what we saw during the campaign. Although the decision to try Khalid Sheikh Mohammed in New York apparently was Eric Holder’s, it strikes me that it really is a mistake.
RUT-ROH … CNN Does the Obama – Jimmy Carter “Malaise” Comparison … He Will Soon Have the Double Digit Unemployment
How bad will it be for Obama when the very people who propped him up, ran cover for him and refused to vet candidate Obama for “We the People” now turn on him?
