Here’s Chris Matthews just hammering Reince Priebus on Mitt Romney’s race-baiting. And, naturally, Tom Brokaw, Joe and Mika totally wuss out.
Adding… You know what also drives me nuts? When people who host political debate shows get concerned and upset whenever there’s actual political debate. What the hell kind of business are we in? We debate, we argue. Mika got that squinty, pained look on her face when things became heated. Seriously? Take a look at the lower third of the screen and remind yourself that you’re not hosting a prayer group. It’s politics! Also, the European line from Priebus is a total lie. “Obamacare” was based a little bit on liberal healthcare policy, but chunks of it came from — gasp! — Romneycare! Anyway, I wish more members of the press had the kind of guts and tenacity Matthews displayed here. More please.
