    According to TV critic David Zurawik, MSNBC's hiring of ex-Obama officials David Axelrod and Robert Gibbs makes the so-callend news network almost "a bona fide organ of state propaganda."

    Hours after this was published Monday, Hardball's Chris Matthews offered his services to Hillary Clinton - along with those of MSNBC contributors Howard Fineman and Joan Walsh - in order to get her elected president in 2016 (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary):

    At the end of a lengthy discussion about Clinton's chances in 2016 - never mind that Election Day is 44 months away! - Walsh said, "I think if she runs again, she really can't run as that front-runner. It cannot be that inevitability campaign that she ran in 2007, and she knows that. She's got to be about the future."

    Matthews replied, "If you're watching, Madam Secretary, all three of us have brilliant ideas. All of us have great ideas. And I especially put myself in that group with Joan and David. We know how to do this, we’ll get you in there."

    Although there may have been a little tongue in Matthews' cheek, everyone watching knew full well that he meant it, and that his mission in the next 44 months - as well as that of likely every MSNBC contributor and guest - is to get Clinton in the White House.

    What's interesting is how the folks on this almost satirical news network don't even feel like they have to hide it anymore.

    I guess BSNBC has dropped all pretence at being a news organization. They are now Obama's official cable channel.
  3. They dropped what little pretence they had the minute Obama won the first time. They aren't even political commentators anymore. They are left wing political activists with their own cable channel. And please lefties, don't mention FOX. FOX is no where near as bad as MSNBC. Not even close.

    When I think of Matthews anymore I picture him as a comedian not even a pundit.

    by Dick Morris, former political adviser to President Bill Clinton

    If you happen to see the Bill Clinton five minute TV ad for Hillary in which he introduces the commercial by saying ...
    he wants to share some things we may not know about Hillary's background . .
    beware as I was there for most of their presidency and know them better than just about anyone, I offer a few corrections;

    Bill says: "In law school Hillary worked on legal services for the poor."
    The facts are: Hillary's main extra-curricular activity in law school was helping the Black Panthers, on trial in Connecticut for torturing and killing a federal agent.
    She went to court every day as part of a law student monitoring committee trying to spot civil rights violations and develop grounds for appeal.

    Bill says: "Hillary spent a year after graduation working on a children's rights project for poor kids."
    The facts are: Hillary interned with Bob Truehaft, the head of the California Communist Party.
    She met Bob when he represented the Panthers and traveled all the way to San Francisco to take an internship with him.

    Bill says: "Hillary could have written her own job ticket, but she turned down all the lucrative job offers."
    The facts are: She flunked the DC bar exam, yes, flunked, it is a matter of record, and only passed the Arkansas bar.
    She had no job offers in Arkansas , none, and only got hired by the University of Arkansas Law School at Fayetteville because Bill was already teaching there.
    She did not join the prestigious Rose Law Firm until Bill became Arkansas Attorney General and was made a partner only after he was elected Arkansas Governor.

    Bill says: "President Carter appointed Hillary to the Legal Services Board of Directors and she became its chairman."
    The facts are: The appointment was in exchange for Bill's support for Carter in his 1980 primary against Ted Kennedy.
    Hillary then became chairman in a coup in which she won a majority away from Carter's choice to be chairman.

    Bill says: "She served on the board of the Arkansas Children's Hospital."
    The facts are: Yes she did. But her main board activity, not mentioned by Bill, was to sit on the Wal-Mart board of directors, for a substantial fee.
    She was silent about their labor and health care practices.

    Bill says: "Hillary didn't succeed at getting health care for all Americans in 1994 but she kept working at it and helped to create the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) that provides five million children with health insurance."
    The facts are: Hillary had nothing to do with creating CHIP.
    It was included in the budget deal between Clinton and Republican Majority Leader Senator Trent Lott.
    I know; I helped to negotiate the deal.
    The money came half from the budget deal and half from the Attorney Generals' tobacco settlement.
    Hillary had nothing to do with either source of funds.

    Bill says: "Hillary was the face of America all over the world."
    The facts are: Her visits were part of a program to get her out of town so that Bill would not appear weak by feeding stories that Hillary was running the White House.
    Her visits abroad were entirely touristic and symbolic and there was no substantive diplomacy on any of them.

    Bill says: "Hillary was an excellent Senator who kept fighting for children's and women's issues."
    The facts are: Other than totally meaningless legislation like changing the names on courthouses and post offices, she has passed only four substantive pieces of legislation.
    One set up a national park in Puerto Rico .
    A second provided respite care for family members helping their relatives through Alzheimer's or other conditions.
    And two were routine bills to aid 911 victims and responders which were sponsored by the entire NY delegation.
    Presently she is trying to have the US memorialize the Woodstock fiasco of 40 years ago.
    Here is what bothers me more than anything else about Hillary Clinton.
    She has done everything possible to weaken the President and our country (that's you and me!) when it comes to the war on terror.
    1. She wants to close GITMO and move the combatants to the USA where they would have access to our legal system.
    2. She wants to eliminate the monitoring of suspected Al Qaeda phone calls to/from the USA .
    3. She wants to grant constitutional rights to enemy combatants captured on the battlefield.
    4. She wants to eliminate the monitoring of money transfers between suspected Al Qaeda c ells and supporters in the USA .
    5. She wants to eliminate the type of interrogation tactics used by the military & CIA where coercion might be used when questioning known terrorists even though such tactics might save American lives.
    One cannot think of a single bill Hillary has introduced or a single comment she has made that would tend to strengthen our country in the War on Terror.
    But, one can think of a lot of comments she has made that weaken our country and makes it a more dangerous situation for all of us.

    And how could Dick have left this out?

    Like husband like wife, I guess.
  8. The good news is she has won exactly one election in her life, the NY Senate seat that was voted to her as consolation for standing by her dirtbag husband. She failed miserably in her presidential bid, losing to an unknown and clearly unqualified and incompetent Obama.

    Chris Mathews and Hillary have never had a close relationship. There was some incident between them in her primary that I have forgotten the details of, but he made some unflattering remarks. Now he is clealry trying to get back in her good graces.

    People tended to like the charismatic Bill Clinton, even if they thought he was a POS. Hillary is the opposite. People generally respect her intellect but instinctively dislike her. She has an unpleasant abrasive personality and an unbecoming sense of entitlement. Her vaunted resume is largely media myth. If she runs, the full Benghazi disaster and her earlier radical associations will be on full display. Of course, the republicans were too afraid to go after Obama, so probably they will give her a pass on all of it.
