Chris Matthews brands Mitt Romney a 'pig' over 'rising oceans' reference

The New York Times’ Nicholas Kristof wasn’t the only one deeply troubled by Mitt Romney’s calling out of The One and his miraculous-yet-undemonstrated power to slow the alleged rise of the oceans. MSNBC’s “fact-checkers” will deny tomorrow that an overheated Chris Matthews called Mitt Romney a “pig” over the remark, but that’s pretty much what he did.

Matthews, venting his rage with the help of Howard Fineman, quickly gave himself an out — Romney’s not a pig, of course, but that’s what he would have called people like him back in the ’60s for talking like that.

What would you call people who talk like Chris Matthews in 2012?

Here’s a tip for Matthews; the laughter wasn’t about climate change.

    Is it just me or is Matthews looking more and more like Gary Busey?

      LOL!!! He really really does!!! Especially in that pic Twitchy’s been using.

        Actually, you know who he REALLY looks like? Matthews looks like the bad guy from “Raiders of the Lost Ark.” And what happens to the bad guy from that movie when he drinks from the false Holy Grail–well, that’s kind of what Matthews will look like when the election is called for Romney.

      Matthews is making Busey appear like he’s rational.

    I was around in the 60’s and the only people ‘they’ called pigs back then were cops.

    • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

      They were still called pigs in the 80’s.

      I wanted to watch msnbc to see their POV on the speeches. I have to say watching msnbc is really painful. CNN is a little better, but it is amazing how much negative overtones msnbc present..

    Chis Matthews has zero integrity but he knows this election is over and he’s not looking forward to (absolutely dreading) the next 8 years and it’s eating him up inside like a flesh eating virus …. I LOVE IT!

  • EverybodyTalks

    Today we call males, not men, who can’t say what they mean and mean what they say…”PUNKS”….and Clint tells me that is what they called them in the 60’s too :)

  • AZWarrior

    If for no other reason, I REALLY want Romney to win so we can all watch Matthews have a total meltdown on air, defecate on his desk and proceed to rub it in his hair.

      lol

  • lisalake

    OMG! Had SOOOO much fun watching msnbc pigs!! Their faces were priceless…. having so much seething angry and hate-spewing venom at every line, on every speech — all with smiles so fake and tight I thought their ugly faces would just explode!!!

    Someone needs to buy Matthews a taser gun. Then in November, after we eject the narcissistic ocean-drainer in chief, Matthews can tase himself in the leg to self-induce a remnant memory of his love affair with TWPE.

    Chris Who?

    After the Romney speech, Matthews and his guests pointed out sneeringly
    that one clapped when Mitt mentioned America’s obligation to help the
    poor. They played the clip to demonstrate their point. But someone had
    TURNED THE AUDIO DOWN after Romney delivered that line to make it appear
    there was stone-cold silence. It was obvious, because Romney’s lips
    were still moving for a second with no sound. Real journalistic
    integrity, that.

    MSNBC has gone so overtly partisan, why does anyone bother giving them press credentials anymore?

  • Stella Andrews

    Obama wins and Chris Matthews gets a tingling sensation up his leg. Romney wins and he gets warm sensation down his leg (when he wets himself on the air). Can’t wait to tune in that night, it’ll be his highest ratings yet.

  • NCRelite

    Chris Matthews is insane. You can tell by how much he drools when he talks

  • Burt Zerker

    It is time for Matthews to leave, but I must admit, watching Matthews have a seizure after Romney wins would be enjoyable. Forgive me God.

    Chris Matthews is calling Romney a pig…? Is he freakin’ serious? After all his tittering, smirking, sleazy, sexist comments directed at women? Romey is everything Matthews is not: a man of honor and integrity, a man who respects his wife and female colleages, a man who wants more for his daughters-in-law and granddaughters than contraceptives and abortions so they can be turned into cumbuckets for the likes of Chris Matthews and the liberal men who are hellbent on putting women back into the bedroom and keeping them there. Chris Matthews is a repulsive, failed, disgusting, dirty old man.

    Matthews? What a sorry excuse for a human being. That little pervert couldn’t wipe the sweat off Romney’s, …well you know what I’m talking about.
