It's all a matter of Ann Coulter vs ? The cool blonde with the brilliant mind and unflappable mien seeks a liberal debating partner for an event that is the equivalent of New Year's Eve, Fourth of July and maybe Thanksgiving Day for conservatives. That's the Conservative Political Action Conference — CPAC — now just nine days off.
Barack Obama was once a constitutional law professor, but now views the founding document as irrelevant. The president is ruling by decree, instead of working with a divided Congress.
"Americans' job approval ratings for Congress in 2013 averaged 14 percent, the lowest annual average in Gallup's history. Congressional approval has averaged 33 percent since Gallup began measuring it in 1974, with the highest yearly average of 56 percent reached in 2001," reports Frank Newport, director of Gallup.
Fact: The IRS targeted conservative and tea party groups requesting tax-exempt status in the run-up to the 2012 presidential election. That's a fact. But President Obama, in an interview last week with sycophant Chris Matthews, now says the entire scandal was made up by the media.
Chris Matthews may still get a tingling sensation whenever he listens to Barack Obama, but for millennials, the thrill is gone. A new Harvard Institute of Politics poll finds the president's favorability rating underwater among those between the ages of 18 to 29. Not surprisingly, once-devoted youthful fans have been turned off by Obamacare.
Chris Matthews reacted to the death of Nelson Mandela Thursday night by saying that the Republican Party is less patriotic than South Africa's white apartheid advocates.
President Obama Thursday portrayed the IRS targeting of tea-party groups as an innocent attempt at efficiency by bureaucrats that went awry, and he expressed surprise that people were outraged by the episode.
It's complicated: The public is weary of the U.S. role as the world's policeman, but it also frets about the nation's declining prestige on the global stage and disapproves of both President Obama's foreign policy practices and any attempts at nation building overseas. Yet Americans approve of aggressive participation in the world economy and favor drones in the military arsenal.
MSNBC host Chris Matthews ought to watch out — he might start earning the reputation as a convert to Republicanism.
MSNBC "Hardball" host Chris Matthews — a staunch pro-Obama defender who famously earned the nickname "Tingles" for remarking on the president's ability to send shivers down his leg with his speeches — is singing a new tune.
Democrats forget their own history of prejudice
President Obama regards promises as pie crusts, only to be broken, but he has kept one promise, which deserves recognition. He promised to change the tone and tenor of Washington, and so he has. The tenor is loud and the tone is sour, and he is in large measure responsible.
Joining a panel on MSNBC's "Now" with Alex Wagner, Chris Matthews questioned the use of the phrase, "We the American People," by tea party conservatives, asking if "they still count blacks as three-fifths" of a vote.
"Hardball" host Chris Matthews is a top-notch, hard-charging cable news-show host — a "national treasure," said MSNBC's president, referring to recent ratings.
HBO's Bill Maher suggested during his show Friday that President Obama is leading as a "centrist" out of fear of being assassinated like John F. Kennedy.
Matthews argued that politicians would be forced to support the president as he wages war, or shun their party loyalty by acting on principle.
"I think Chris has been totally humbled and impressed with what our kids have done and how they've migrated to [community service]," Mrs. Matthews said.
