Lackey for Obama

  • Aug 27, 2010
Up until Barack Obama announced his candidacy for president, I enjoyed watching "Hardball" with Chris Mathews.  Yes, I knew he was a liberal and had a biased leaning to the left; however, he was willing to call out liberals and ask the tough questions of all politicians.

However, that all changed when Obama threw is hat in the ring!  Mathews has been a lackey for Obama ever since and I have not watched his show in years.  He has lost all his objectivity and I do not think he deserves to be on a show that purports to be in the news division.  He is now simply running a press operation for the current administration.

This is too bad.  Many years ago he wrote an excellent book on Kennedy and Nixon that was very balanced.  JFK is his hero.  Yet, when he started to write a book about him he realized and reported on all the sleazy political tactics he used to gain political office.  All of that unbiased criticism is no longer in his character when it comes to Obama.  For me, Mathews has given his soul over to "Hope and Change."  Good luck with all of that Chris Matthews!!!!

Absolutely on the mark - his Democrat interviews are almost laughable.

I am in total agreement with you although I gave up on Chris before you did. A total lackey for the Democrats and Brack Obama. Unwatchable TV!

Thanks for the compliment. I just don't trust much of what is on TV anymore, that masquerades as a "news" show!

Watching this guy is sometimes listening to a wrestler getting interviewed. He sounds so ridiculous! Even Bill Maher seems to have no patience when he has appeared on Maher's HBO show.

he is bright, engaging, and experienced but a lousy host/interviewer. he talks too much and does not allow replies to his questions. he should have an AM radio show and just keep talking. too annoying for prime time.
