Take a good look and listen to what Dan Rather said about the Obamamessiah on the syndicated Chris Matthews Show via News Busters. The former CBS News anchor may have really stepped in it this time. No word on whether Chris Matthews got a tingly feeling up his leg when he heard Rather make the watermelon comment.
Rather said what? No way he really said this …
DAN RATHER: Part of the undertow in the coming election is going to be President Obama’s leadership. And the Republicans will make a case and a lot of independents will buy this argument. “Listen he just hasn’t been, look at the health care bill. It was his number one priority. It took him forever to get it through and he had to compromise it to death.” And a version of, “Listen he’s a nice person, he’s very articulate” this is what’s been used against him, “but he couldn’t sell watermelons if it, you gave him the state troopers to flag down the traffic.”
I am not sure about watermelons, but we know Obama can’t sell health care.
