Chris Matthews sings the praises of his "new " tingle Michelle Bachmann?!
Chris Matthews "Michelle Bachman is REAL"
Chris Matthews "She's my HERO"
Chris Matthews "She's going all the way"
Did Chris Matthews have a change of heart about Michelle Bachmann? Has Chris Matthews seen the light? Or could there be another reason for the positive tone towards Bachmann?
I've seen the news coverage of Michelle Bachmann after the New Hampshire debate. Most of the news about Bachman has been "POSITIVE".
So why would liberals in the media write positive stories on a women who is ideologically opposed to everything they stand for?
The answer is obvious. Michelle Bachmann isn't Sarah Palin. It's not that the media likes Bachmann, that's far from the case. The media feels that if they can pump up Bachmann as being the alternative to Palin and it catches on, it would put a death nail into any chances of Palin announcing a 2012 bid within the next few weeks. The admiration Chris showed towards Bachmann on Maher's show was touching but fake.
Chris called his now new tingle Michelle Bachmann a "balloon head" and much worse back in January of this year.
Is Chris banking on people having short term memories that can't span beyond "five months"? Chris Matthews is only fooling people who can easily be fooled in the first place. Others like myself aren't buying it.
Michelle Bachmann is the number two most hated conservative female in the country. I've already mentioned part of the reason for the 180 degree flip by the media on Bachmann. The other part is that they believe that Obama can beat Bachmann if Bachmann won the nomination. The media would never give favorable press to a Republican presidential candidate unless they knew he or she couldn't beat a Democratic President or candidate. I happened to notice that Chris told Maher that Bachmann could go all the way. He didn't say that she could go all the way and beat Obama, just that she could go all the way and win the nomination. What should be taken away from this is that, when liberals in the media start singing the praises of a Republican Presidential candidate, always remember the underlying reason why they are doing so.
