    Video: Wisconsin State Senator Glenn Grothman to Chris Matthews – “You’re Completely Uninformed”

    Does anyone wonder why Chris Matthews and MSNBC have such low ratings? If Matthews who once was a speech writer for President Jimmy carter wants to spin to the LEFT at least get the facts straight.

    The issue here is whether Wisconsin Governor is rewarding certain unions (the one’s that supported him in the last election) and punishing others that are primarily Democratic Party supporters. The answer IS that not too many unions, even the police and fire ones supported Governor Walker.

    MSNBC’s Chris Matthews tried Monday to push the liberal media meme that Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker exempted police and firefighters from his budget repair plan because their unions endorsed him in last November’s election.

    “Well one more time you’re completely uninformed,” replied Republican State Senator Glenn Grothman who then proceeded to tell the facts to the obviously clueless “Hardball” host.

    I guess Chris Matthews has an incompetent staff or wait for it…….they are BIASED.

    Particularly since Governor Walker was on CBS stating the obvious:

    But, if you don’t believe Governor Walker than there is the dfinitive answer – GOOGLE.

    Or Politifact:

    During the campaign last November, leaders of the Milwaukee Professional Firefighters Association and Milwaukee Police Association appeared in an ad supporting Walker and blasting his opponent, Democrat Tom Barrett. Walker also won endorsements from the West Allis Professional Police Association and the Wisconsin Troopers Association

    Walker didn’t get the endorsements of two statewide unions, the Wisconsin Professional Police Association and the Professional Fire Fighters of Wisconsin, which both backed Barrett.

    For the record, the governor told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that the charge that he was exempting police and firefighters was “ridiculous.” He said he didn’t recommend changing the rules for police officers and firefighters because he didn’t want public safety work disrupted.

    We then contacted the Wisconsin Professional Police Association, the statewide union that endorsed Walker’s opponent last year. Executive director Jim Palmer said the statewide organization is much larger than the local Milwaukee police union that endorsed Walker. The state group has approximately 11,000 members versus Milwaukee’s roughly 1,400, he said.

    Similarly, the state firefighters association has more than 3,000, compared with the Milwaukee union’s 875.

    Nice try Chris Matthews and MSNBC but your facts smell as does your commentary.

    Is Chris Matthew’s “Oh God” Bobby Jindal Crack A Racist Jibe? What About Outsourced?

    Chris Matthews last night on MSNBC

    Now, after his “Oh God” crack was revealed, Chris Matthews of MSNBC has issued a clarification:

    I was taken aback by that peculiar stagecraft, the walking from somewhere in the back of this narrow hall, this winding staircase looming there, the odd anti-bellum look of the scene. Was this some mimicking of a president walking along the state floor to the East Room?

    Antebellum means “pre-Civil War.”

    So, is Matthews making a jaded remark related to Jindal’s southern accent, being from a deep southern Confererate state, Jindal is non-white and the fact that he is criticizing the first African-American President?

    Take your pick – all of the above.

    Ace has more about this “outsourced” comment from this further Matthews commentary on Jindal’s response.

    Chris Matthews thinks GOP Outsourced The State of the union response to Indian Bobby Jindal. In every area that was touched on, they had to get an outside guy. They had to outsource the response tonight, the Republican party. They had to outsource it to someone who had nothing to do with Congress because the Republicans in Congress had nothing to do with the programs he was talking about tonight or the record he referred to.

    Day By Day by Chris Muir

    No, Chris, there is NO Hardball from Chris Matthews and the LEFT-WING crew over at MSNBC and NBC News. In this morning’s NBC News promos they are already highlighting Obama’s first 100 days in office and it has been what? Two Weeks?

    Anytime a journalist says he has a “thrill down his leg” about Obama, Flap becomes a “little” suspicious about media bias.

    Just a little…..

    Video: Chris Matthews Bags on Sarah Palin – “If She Can Read, If She Can Write, She’ll Make Some Money”

    Chris Matthews on MSNBC’s Hardball questions Sarah Palin’s literacy

    Chris Matthews is probably just envious that Sarah Palin is asking for and will receive a big payday, especially since he reportedly recently renewed his contract with MSNBC for $3 million per year less.

    But, then again, as a MEDIA SYNCOPHANT for Obama and the Democrats, he is just jabbing at the ‘CUDA again.

    MSNBC host Chris Matthews suggested Friday that Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) may not have the reading or writing ability needed to complete the book she is reportedly shopping.

    The Los Angeles Times reported Friday that Palin is seeking an $11 million advance for her memoir and has hired high-powered Washington attorney Robert Barnett to broker the deal.

    Teasing a segment on the book during his show “Hardball,” Matthews said: “If she can read, if she can write, she’ll make some money.”

    Matthews repeated his suggestion that Palin could not write the book later in the show. “The question is who actually will write the Palin book,” he said. “The only politician I know who can write is Barack Obama.”

    Most politicians have professional ghost writers helping them. Richard Nixon had Hugh Hewitt. Chris Matthews was a speechwriter for Jimmy Carter. So, big deal.

    But, the LEFT must keep attacking Palin and Matthews is the daily dose.

    Here is video of Palin’s Alaska State of the State speech. Does she appear stupid or illiterate?

    Why, of course not.

    Olbermann and Matthews are BACK Anchoring Presidential Politics – Take Their Last Shots at Bush

    MSNBC’s Chris Matthews and Keith Olbermann take their last shots RANTS at President Bush

    The dynamic LEFT duo of Chris Matthews and Keith Olbermann are back anchoring Presidential politics for MSNBC. As you remember, they were removed last summer after criticism of media bias.

    Within a couple minutes of President Bush’s farewell speech, MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann asked, “Am I wrong that the only thing missing tonight was another ‘Mission Accomplished’ banner?”

    Chris Matthews, shortly after, said that Bush “got to be president because of his father.”

    Both MSNBC stars took heat from conservative critics during the campaign for their analysis of news events — such as election nights or conventions. Toward the end of the campaign, MSNBC removed the Olbermann-Matthews duo from anchoring due to such criticism and staff tension (both on camera and off). 

    Looking at the latest television ratings, MSNBC will not be doing themselves any favors by unleashing these two and Rachel Maddow.

    But, third place in the news ratings is not all that bad, now is it?
