Chris Matthews: The Only Way GOP Can Win Is To Rig Elections

msnbc
by Jeffrey Meyer, NewsBusters

Chris Matthews, infamous for throwing out outrageous attacks against Republicans, has chosen President Obama’s second inauguration as a perfect opportunity to slam the GOP as a party of cheaters.  Speaking with the all-liberal MSNBC inauguration panel, Matthews suggested that in future elections, the only way Republicans can win election is if they rig them in their favor.

Matthews’ rant began when he groused that the Republican-controlled state legislature in Pennsylvania could change the way the state allocates electoral votes for president to one based on winning congressional districs rather than the present winner-takes-all model. Of course, Nebraska and Maine have similar ways of apportioning their electoral votes. In fact President Obama won one electoral vote from the Cornhusker State in 2008, but now that Republicans in a blue state are considering it,  “There’s so much of this willingness to rig the election by the Republicans now.”

    No you moron, its to keep the urban areas from overriding the will of the people from the suburban and rural areas. Not all of us are on the latte sipping bandwagon of the urban cities.

    I like the fact that Matthews, Shultz, and Maddow were running the show, it tells me that the majority of the audience switched channels almost immediately.

    Actually, it was discovered that if you assign electoral votes according to representative district victories, the totals would not change that much. California has 53 districts with at least 20 of those in the Los Angeles area. Maybe more.

    Now, if the major metropolitan areas (say 250k or more people) only got ONE representative (like they should), we would have honest elections.

    Reporters have become dumbed down by their incestuous relationship with each other. Socializing within themselves, they have been progressively moving into the shallow end of the gene pool, and the results are these “journalists” we see now.

    msnbc is in the kiddie pool

    and those who watch it.

    Republicans rigging elections Chris? Really? Maybe you can explain why every attempt to clean up voter fraud is fiercely opposed by the democrat party. Maybe you’d care to explain why every single time a precinct has more voters than citizens the democrat wins. Oh, and one more thing Chris: Which president Clinton signed the Motor Voter act with Cloward and Piven standing right behind him?

    Looks like those four quasi-guys are broadcasting from the observation deck of the former office of the president-elect, now known as the office of the present di-elect.

    Tut, tut. Looks like rain.

    Chris Matthews: Proof that the Left is stupid.

    Was thinking today of those kinds of coincidences like the one they always talk about between Lincoln and Kennedy — you know, Licoln drove a Kennedy and so on.

    - MLK wrote letters from jail. obama wrote a book that should have put him in jail.

    - MLK was a minister. obama’s minister(s) aren’t really ministers.

    - MLK understood the dignity of being known for your character. obama and his friends are all caricatures.

    - MLK had a dream and marched in Selma. obama dreamed he marched in Selma.

    - MLK stood for equality among men. obama thinks equality if racist.

    (join in if you’ve got others)

    Happy MLK Day!
