Chris “Tingles” Matthews didn’t like Senator Marco Rubio’s State of the Union response one little bit. Rubio must have really hit a nerve, as he seems to have sent Matthews into a state of Rubio Derangement Syndrome.
MSNBC’s Chris Matthews blasted Marco Rubio’s State of the Union rebuttal Tuesday night as “primitive” and “something you’d hear on a high school debating team.”
“I thought it was Tinkertoys,” Mr. Matthews said. …
“First of all, he went after government as some kind evil, then he admitted he had gone to school on student loans,” the “Hardball” host said. “Well, I went to school on student loans. My dad went to school on the GI Bill. Most of us have benefited from good government. Government’s worked for us. I got in the Peace Corps, changed my life. I mean, I’m very pro-government. And he admit he was, too. He said, I love Medicare because of how it takes care of my mother, how it took care of my father with dignity. He said, I went the student loan route, I got my education.”
What a loon. Rubio never said government was evil, although we could certainly make the case that the current government is evil, and people like Chris Matthews abet them in their crimes against the constitution and our wallets. But I digress.
Here’s the video, listen to Rachel Maddow open the segment by saying she was shocked that Rubio’s speech wasn’t upbeat. What the heck is there to be upbeat about? The progressives control just about everything and they’re spending us into oblivion. These people are complete morons.
Oh, and everyone else was talking about Rubio taking a sip of water. Seriously, this is what people care about? Democrats drink water, but nobody complains about that.
As for the people on our side complaining about Rubio’s speech, I say, could you please give it a break for a few minutes? He’s in the minority party facing a hostile media and trying to appeal to the low-information voters. That’s not exactly an easy task. I think he did just fine, and so did Rand Paul in his Tea Party response.
