VIDEO: Chris Matthews inadvertently speaks the truth

Posted by: ST on March 14, 2011 at 7:13 pm

Noel Sheppard at Newsbusters caught this clip from a weekend “Chris Matthews Show” segment in which Matthews mistakenly called President Obama President Carter (via Doug Powers):

CHRIS MATTHEWS: If the Republicans get a real opportunity next year because President Carter, President – there’s a mistake – President uh, uh, Obama doesn’t seem to have a grip on it, he doesn’t seem to be able to pull the economy back. He’s not, it’s not working. Who would be the best to exploit that situation? Because that’s the person who would win.

Here’s the full show transcript here.

Comedy gold, my dear readers. Comedy gold.

The truth shall set you free, Chris. The truth shall set you free.

Can I get an “amen”?

    “Amen” The guy is a tool and a schill for the wackiest folks around

  2. Lorica says:

    Amen!!! Chris is such a buffoon. Even tho in this statement, he does reflect my own thoughts. About time he caught up to me. – Lorica

  3. Wow, that is quite the statement from Chris “tingles” Mathews. I wonder if his leg has gone numb now? Carter = Obama. What a concept! I guess Obama’s world apology tour, bumbling of the Gulf Coast spill, bowing to foreign potentates, and abdication of America’s leadership of the free world has taken a toll on the President’s prestige. Who would have thought?

    I believe that’s at least the second time Tingles has done that on-air. The resemblance must be too much for him. :)

  5. Kate says:

    Amen! Now he is seeing the light!

  6. Brontefan says:

    The two worst presidents ever–it is only natural they would be confused for one another. Obama’s big problem is not that he cannot get the economy back into the swing! It is that the has not managed to completely socialize the country and re-distribute ALL the wealth. … although, Michael Moore is an interesting shrill.

  7. Paul says:

    Carter and Obama-soul mates !!

  8. Carlos says:

    Amen, and amen.

    But this all begs the question: Did CM get that same thrill up his leg when Jimmuh was around, or is it reserved just for Duh-1?

    They both have big teeth – It’s an easy mistake to make.
