Did MSNBC’s Chris Matthews Just Say Obama was Making “Carteresque” Mistakes?


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.

Full transcript can be read at NewsBusters.

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.

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?

      I guess the “blame it on Bush” strategy is getting a little old, even with the true believers on the left like Matthews. Give him credit for being more objective than he has been. Fox news has fact checked Palin a few times and reported her errors. It is about time the left wing media starts to look critically at Obama.

      I think the media will slowly begin its distancing from things Health Care, manmade global warming, redistribution of wealth, abuse of things marxist (generally) not spelled out in our constitution, illegal political activisum, Obama, and the Democrate Congress…somewhere around — in that order. Believing media piles on where reporting requires less intelligence; also, as to a dog of the pack is down, they bite that dog. Media will now begin trying to save themselves from being the bitten. Slowly.

      Chris Matthews is a disgrace to manhood! Such as those like Haley who gulps down every last bit of Obama’s……….WORDS as gospel!

      Obama and his association with Rev Wright is certainly not a credit to his background along with his terrorists friends….along with not claiming his original heritage…the guys STINKS…and is a complete disrespect to all our presiding Presidents…even Jimmy Carter…I think Obama has an attitude of great harm to the US and should resign….he has put all of us in great jeopardy…

      On another note we still have to pursue our heritage….God Bless All, have a GREAT THANKSGIVING….!!!!!!!!

      [...] The German newspaper Speigel asks, Will Obama Be the ‘Jimmy Carter of the 21st Century’? Will he, it appears he already is. Or as  Fauta’s Blog states, Germany was for him, before they were against him.  Many in the US have already begun to make the comparison of Obama to Carter’s failed one term presidency. Even those at liberal MSNBC have stated that Obama has made “Carteresque” mistakes. [...]
