First, a little housekeeping note:
A good friend, Rich F., sends me emails, usually on a weekly basis, on his thoughts about politics or the state of the world. I, and others, have urged him to start his own blog. Suffice to say, that doesn’t look like it’s going to happen. I suggested a fix, if only temporary, in that I’ll post his thoughts through my blog, of course providing credit to him, and he agreed.
Now, the background:
Chris Matthews, host of MSNBC’s Hardball, has had quite the last few years, originating in the “thrill” he got up his leg after hearing President Obama, then Candidate/Senator Obama, speak. That thrill culminated over the years into the eventual reality, as far as Chris Matthews sees, that anyone that does not want Obama as President is not making their decision based on his record, but because of “racial hatred.”
Without further ado, here’s Rich’s reply:
A Retort to Chris Matthews by Rich F.:
Get this through your thick liberal/progressive skull. Conservatives have contempt for Obama. Oh yes, we do. But, it has nothing to do with the color of his skin. It has everything to do with his domestic policy, which is Socialist & Marxist in nature, and his foreign policy, which is, to say the very least, WEAK! He has abrogated the role of United States’ leadership in the world. The quest for liberty & freedom in the world, for all people, will never be realized without America leading.
Are you blind? I think you are. You are blinded by your ideology. Look at the Middle East. Do you think the Muslim Brotherhood wants liberty, freedom of religion, or women’s rights? Look at Israel. The only stable democracy in the region, yet Obama gives them the cold shoulder. Not to mention the fact of their inception in 1948 is a miracle in itself, while she was, and still is, surrounded by enemies. Look at our economy. Private sector money sits in banks because of Obama’s health care law & regulations. So, there is no expansion, no jobs, no wealth being created, and no real recovery. But, we do have more people than ever receiving government assistance. Barack Obama considers that an accomplishment, right? Now, listen to what I am about to say and listen good (as if it would matter). Alan West is a black American running for re-election in the heart of liberalism in Florida. I am a white American. Raised Roman Catholic, just like you. My Church, Priests, and Nuns were traditional Conservatives. It seems yours taught “liberation theology”, which is, in fact, Marxism. I’m not one to spout off about personal donations for what I believe are worthy causes, but I will make an exception this one time for your benefit. I have donated to Alan West’s campaign, because I believe in his message. His race doesn’t matter. So, Chris, do everybody a favor and stick your race card right up your ass! Plain enough, Matthews? You are nothing more than a liberal con artist.
