Has Chris Matthews finally lost that "special tingle" for Obama?
If someone would have told me that Chris Matthews would have fallen out of love with his chocolate man crush Barack Obama a few months ago, I would have said that person was nuts. From the very beginning Mr. Tingles has been one of Obama's most loyal and fierce supporters. He even vowed to do everything in his power to make Obama's presidency a success.
Chris has attacked everybody who has taken issue with Obama. Since very few people even watch MSNBC, his staunch defense of Barry has pretty much gone unnoticed by those on the right. People say that love is color blnd, and I suppose that could be said for Matthews crush for Obama at a particular moment in time or at least for an hour.
Could Matthew's feelings for his chocolate stud muffin be changing? Chris had some not so flattering words for Obama today over his lukewarm response to the oil spill in the gulf.
Obama appears to have forgotten one of the golden rules of liberalism. Barry forgot that support among his base will turn on him if he ignores their most cherished causes. In this case, that would be the environment. Chris even said it himself. Obama's weak response to the gull spill has other once loyal liberals openly questioning Barry's judgment. This is long time Democrat strategist and all around funny guy James Carville taking Obama to task as well over his weak response to the gulf oil spill.
Dare I say that the Obama tingle is slowly but surely starting to disappear even among his once loyal supporters?
