Chris “Tingles” Matthews wondered “Why do people hate this president so much.” Then he went on the brush aside the scandals plaguing the administration. He even stuck to the thoroughly debunked story that the attack on our installation in Benghazi was caused by some obscure video.
“Let me finish tonight with something that’s been bothering me. Why do people hate this president so much and all this other stuff, the obscure IRS story? This never got tied to any of the Obama political people. The Benghazi brouhaha that was discredited by the bipartisan Senate Intelligence Committee that basically squared the Obama claims with the evidence showing it really was a spontaneous attack probably triggered by a Cairo attack and that dumb anti-Islamic movie out of Los Angeles. Don’t you get the sense that the Obama hatred is a hatred in search of a reason? Whatever comes along like the CBO report yesterday becomes another way to find a way to explain hating the guy. Is it the way the guy lives his life? Is it his family? Is it he’s a Democrat? Really? Is that the reason to hate him? Or is it just because, just because, just because he is who he is?”
I guess it hasn’t occurred to Tingles that maybe people hate losing their health insurance or seeing their premiums and deductibles rise. Maybe they hate being out of work, or not being able to find full time jobs. Maybe they hate watching a president ignore the constitution and rewrite laws as he sees fit without authorization from Congress. Apparently it hasn’t occurred to him that it’s nothing personal.
Oh, and did he ever wonder why so many on the left hated, absolutely loathed, George W. Bush?
