It was a very stupid thing to say, in light of how much destruction was left in the storm's wake. Now, they are being pounded with a snowstorm. Chris Matthews makes me miss Tim Russert.

I didn't catch it on Election Night, but I was watching TDS when they called the race for Obama. I didn't stay up much later than that, and was in bed by midnight.

This guy has a habit of saying really insensitive or dumbass things. It makes me wonder why I work so hard to be a good, hard-working person. If I had been a colossal idiot, I could have been a national celebrity with a 7 figure salary.

The only thing Chris Matthews regrets is that people were able to see what a jerk this guy truly is unscripted and unhinged.

The truly DUmb among the ranks won't understand just how profoundly stupid and insensitive the remark. The ideologically aligned, hence truly stupid, won't care. And the rest of us already get it. Chrissy is safe and insulated from repercussions due to his moonbattiness. A conservative would be in Obama's cooked unemployment numbers.

Calling it a stupid comment misses the point. Chris Matthews is not saying something stupid, he is saying what he believes. Matthews was simply demonstrating his core principle, which is that the amount of pain imposed on the people of the United States is irrelevant as long as his side wins in the end. It's an end justifies the means attitude that the left embraces.

This is the face of the Democrats who denounced our troops while Republicans were in power, but stopped the moment Bush left office, or who loved filibusters when Democrats were in the minority in the senate, but now want them abolished because they interfere with the agenda. In Matthews' world, anything goes, as long as the good guys win, and the good guys are they say they are, not matter how incompetent, corrupt or downright evil they may be. This is the worldview that allows a president to abandon people in the middle of a firefight, lie about it repeatedly and still claim to be strong on defense. It's the worldview that allows a senator to drown a woman and still be heralded by feminists, who also closed ranks to defend another president who was credibly accused of rape. It's the worldview that lets another senator be revered as the "conscience of the senate" despite his having been an officer in the KKK. It's a worldview that justifies anything, any lie, any act, any crime, as long as it advances the pursuit of power.

All Matthews cares about is getting power to the left. If it takes a hurricane that leaves millions of people without the basic necessities of life, then he's okay with that. It's just the latest variation on not being able to make an omelet without breaking a few eggs.

Isn't that what I said?

Isn't that what I said?Yes, just reiterating it. That phrase has always struck me as the most incredibly asinine rationalization for Leftist bad behavior, particularly violence. I had a suite-mate in college who literally thought it was just fine that Che murdered people to advance his cause, and that was the phrase this asshole used with a shrug of the shoulders when I asked him why he thought murder was OK.

Astounding. Just SMFH.

The answer to that is, "what if you're one of the eggs?" If he thought that murder was okay, then it would be okay to murder him, right?

Leftists always assume that they'll be the ones wielding the spatula, or the gas line into the showers, but what happens if you base your policy positions on murder, and then lose? Is it okay to retaliate? And if you're going to be murdered if you don't toe the line, then it must be okay to kill the person who intends to murder you first, in self defense, so you would have been justified in killing your suite-mate. Did any of that ever occur to him?

This is 100% spot on accurate. Ody, ever consider a career in politics when you leave the Army? Or at least be a pundit? You're just as good as Ann Coulter or Charles Krauthammer.

Maybe he already is? I think he's a Fox News contributor doing interviews when he is available.

You didn't hear it from me, we are not supposed to know.
