Mitt Romney destroyed President Obama in Wednesday night’s debate. Hardest hit? Chris Matthews’ leg tingle.

By most accounts on Twitter, it was … messy.

The meltdown was real. And it was spectacular.

There are no tingles here. But there may have been tears. Mmm. Salty, delicious tears.

Minds blown!

C’mon, Chris, you know the chair is empty unless Jay and Bey are around.

Sweating and red-faced, the delusional Matthews insisted Obama’s biggest problem is that he’s not watching enough … MSNBC. Really:

MSNBC for debate prep! We can’t breathe!

Another reality check for the reality-challenged Chris Matthews:

RIP leg tingle.

  • Jack Offelday

    Tingles has morphed into spittles.

    • PennyRobinsonFanClub

      Ah, he was never very far from that anyway….

  • Cosmo

    Yes, watching MSNBC is what everyone needs. That’s why they have lower ratings than a local cable access channel.

    • Brett McMicken

      maybe that is one reason why obama lost: he WAS using msnbc for debate prep

      • Jay Stevens

        Quite likely. Every time I watch MSNBC, I can feel my IQ slowly dropping. Fortunately, the loss has been temporary.

        And now I suspect that I know what the onset of Alzheimer’s feels like.

    • Jeffrey Harbin

      And that is what pisses me off the most…a supposed news channel telling one side they need to follow the advice of the News channel. I realize we’re dealing with MSNBC here, but whatever happened to news channels that just reported instead of supported?

    • Shirley

      AMEN !!!

  • Right Wired

    Obama looked as sad and confused as Mike Tyson in a spelling bee.

    • pajamakat

      Obams should have just retreated to the corner. All he needed was a dunce cap. That’s how bad he was. I guess he thought he just had to show up and Mitt would start shaking in his boots. But, look who prepped him for the debate. John Kerry – A joke right there.

      • PA_Libertarian

        Be careful when mentioning dunce caps. In Chris Mathews’ world, pointed hats are a racist dog whistle.

  • John Hanover

    WOW! That was a sad sad sad face on Chris. He couldn’t have pooped his pants, he might be needing lots of decaf, fiber, an enema, and perhaps a new degree before he finds a bowel movement ( not that marching to Obama beat wouldn’t be considered that ). The anger at Obama by the sheep is hilarious, Romney mopped the floor with Obama then squeegeed him out and mopped the floor again and again and again while Leher barely awake through the proceedings was owned as well. Nothing But Clowns and the Much the Same Nothing But Clowns should stick to fiction and not confuse themselves and call it news with the empty suits. Hard to feel a tingle up your leg when it falls asleep Chris you yellow dog fifth estate squatter.

  • SansMercy

    It was as if the tingling had moved to his left arm as he sweated, turned red and emotionally keeled over dead. It was awesome.

  • Timothy Crenshaw

    Chris Matthews just let the cat out of the bag. He said that the President should be watching MSNBC for his talking points. I guess that would be because they are the ones who support everything Obama does and says. Rachel stuck her foot in it too. Romney’s last debate was seven months ago and Obama’s was four years ago and the only people he is used to asking him questions are reporters sitting in his camp while stands and leads them. Finally the MSM flat states that, yes, they are part of Obama’s campaign team.

    • lillymckim

      Wow Rachel truer words were never spoken. Level playing field.
      Hollywood couldn’t help him and neither could Bill Clinton

  • Cyborg0012

    I haven’t stopped laughing all morning. Serpent-head is freaking out too:

  • Brett McMicken

    from the sound of chrissy’s voice, it sounds as if there was some wet, snotty, bawling going on

  • teresa

    Shorter Matthews: Obama should watch MSNBC for Dem talking points in debates. #Irony.

  • tomincol

    This is what happens when you invest your self worth in exchange for “racial absolution”. The entire thing falls apart. Just wait until the topic is foreign policy!!

  • $129448

    Can he blow any more spoke up his ass

  • Paul C.

    You talk about BOTTOM OF THE BARREL, Chris lost his tingle. As soon as the left looses or doesn’t get their way B O O M the mask flies off and the REAL left is exposed.

  • Nastified

    What does it say about Chris Matthews that he is so emotionally invested in this President that he literally cannot make it one minute into his live segment without breaking down into hysterics?

    On a professional level it’s completely unacceptable. But then again this is MSNBC.

  • Owen007

    When you’ve lost Chris Matthews…

  • John (it true me am)

    The excuses. Oh good lord the excuses.

  • Rob Stevely

    Obama is still giving Matthews tingles,, Its just now they are running down his left arm.

  • Joseph Phillips

    Presidentin’ sure is hard work…. It’s sad when Barry learned that not everyone loves him as mich as he loves himself.

  • Elaine

    I can’t even IMAGINE what the liberals will do when Obama LOSES! Yikes, scary thought.

    • Gene Smith

      jumping out of tall buildings like during the stock market crash in 1929

    • FreedomsReigning

      That’s what FEMA camps are for. (and they thought they were for patriots… ROFL)

      We tried to warn them, but they buried their heads in the sand, thinking they were on the winning team, and continued worshiping the man who’d answer all their covetous prayers.

      Watch what happens when a sycophant man worshiper is pulled off the nipple.

    • Jay Stevens

      Threaten to leave the U.S.A.? Then REALLY leave.

  • notadumbocrat

    Now that tape was FUNNy! No teleprompter and an abismal record exposes Obama as what he is – a puppet of Soros. Made my night :-)

  • TocksNedlog

    Poor Chris! If only there were some book in existence somewhere that he could have read that would have advised him “You shall have no other gods before me”. Oh wait . . .

    • vinrod

      I saw what you did there! ;-D

      • TocksNedlog

        Remember when Matthews went nuts on his show, calling Obama “a PERFECT husband” and “a PERFECT father”, and concluding that ANYONE who dares criticize this ‘perfect’ man MUST be doing so out of racism? Because he’s so perfect, ya know.

  • TocksNedlog

    Question: If Matthews thinks that Obama needs to watch MSNBC in order to learn what to say, does this mean that Obama is no longer “the smartest guy in the room”?

  • olbassman

    Excuses and tears and spitting all over the mics – just another nite on PMS NBC.Problem is big O HAS been watching you moron!!!

  • prestonsc

    This asswipe is a pathetic excuse for all human debris. You have to be substance dependent to spew the garbage Matthews does….talk about delusional…he’s the picture in the dictionary.

  • Marcy Cook

    Let’s face it without the O Chris won’t have a job. This is one time I am hoping for more unemployment.

    • Gene Smith

      agree with you Marcy,we can hope tingler moves to Maui with hi s ex tingler-in-chief,lol

    • Infinite_Indeterminism

      Oh, I don’t know that – he could move to Hawaii and become O’s garbage collector…

  • TocksNedlog

    Now that the thrill running up Matthews’ leg is gone, the last verse of B.B. King’s classic “The Thrill is Gone” seems quite appropriate to the moment:
    “You know I’m free, free now baby, I’m free from your spell;
    Oh I’m free free free now, I’m free from your spell;
    And now that it’s all over, all I can do is wish you well.”

  • IN_RadioGuy

    Wow. That almost makes up for not being able to find a “Hitler reacts to the Romney/Obama Debate” video this morning. (Because you KNOW there’d be one up on YouTube if Romney had underperformed as bad as the “Peezzy of the United Steezzy” did last night.)

  • TocksNedlog

    Matthews told the president to “kick him in the balls,” but instead Obama stepped on his own crank.

    • Jeffrey Harbin

      …while wearing his golf shoes.

    • PennyRobinsonFanClub

      Really? I didn’t think he could get his feet up that high.

  • Tish

    I was waiting for David Axelrod to run into the ring,aka the stage, throw a towel, and demand the bloodbath be stopped. Nothing is more satisfying than watching good triumph over evil !

  • Walker Bennett

    This is our media folks. If it is this obvious that they push an agenda in favor of a political party why is it so hard to think that they may push an agenda concerning foreign policy and world events? Can’t have it both ways. Either they’re agenda driven, propaganda spouters or they’re not. People who aren’t blinded by party loyalty are able to see the obvious bias concerning ALL issues. This debate was pointless, Obama had nothing to lose. 95% of the country vote for the party, not the candidate. The 5% of us who actually vote based on policy, record and issues wern’t going to vote for Obama anyway.

  • jdog

    Watching the clip it appears Tingles sharted while speaking.

  • 2ifbyT

    Next thing you know, Chris will be bringing a gun to work.

  • jdog

    I think Tingles actually sharted during his tirade.

  • WingedBishop

    “Well, this tonight wasn’t an MSNBC debate, was it? It just wasn’t.” What does he mean exactly, that Obama wasn’t given all the questions beforehand and had to actually answer the same questions as Romney? That Romney actually got to go on stage and participate? They didn’t cut off his microphone? The nerve!

    • Nicole Libertoski

      there was a little blip where Romney’s mic went out and Obama snickered…did anyone else catch that?

  • EastValleyConservative

    His meltdown has to do with the fact that he (and other water carrying lapdogs) feel like they have been ignored. Have they just figured out that Obama is about Obama?? Bwhaha!

  • Kris Hanke

    Chris’ tingle turned to tinkle

  • Patrick Cassidy

    “You’ve lost, that lovin’ feelin’……”

  • Dan Irish

    Matthews “tingle” officially became “foot drop”.

  • oldenough2remember

    Really Mathews… go after the facts??? Pardon me while I finish laughing. The liar on the stage was Obama.

  • yanki161

    Romney was “floating like a butterfly, stinging like a (son of a) bee” as we watched him Rope the Dope.

  • Greg Greenlee

    Hey, Chris! Is that feeling a tingling running down your leg or a tinkling?

  • Patrick Cassidy

    Chris Matthews acted like he didn’t know who Jim Lehrer was.
    From Wikipedia: “Nicknamed the “Dean of Moderators” by CNN’s Bernard Shaw, Lehrer has moderated eleven presidential candidate debates.”

  • AdderallDiaires

    This is what liberals look like that have just lost their base and know it. In Dennis Miller’s words, Obama got owned, refinanced and owned again.

  • Cynthia Clement

    Another member of the cast of the Obama Boo Boo Show melts down. What a hoot!

  • Randy C. Lindsey

    It was the high altitude of Denver. Obama’s brain just didn’t have time to adjust.
    Matthews is to journalism what my dog is to world literature.

    • Jay Stevens

      I heard that Obama prepped in Las Vegas. Las Vegas runs about 2000 – 3800 feet above sea level – not really a lot of difference between there and Denver.

  • Robert Greenwald

    Who is Chris Matthews?

    • Ogrrre

      Like Mongo in Blazing Saddles, Chris isn’t a “who” so much as a “what”.

  • joepoli

    Why does Comcast who owns MSNBC, allow this to go on? This is not journalism, this is the mental ward.

  • ns4853

    Matthews really got unhinged! What’s he going to do when Obama loses? I see a heart attack coming

    • Infinite_Indeterminism

      I was thinking stroke, but then I realised that that’s impossible in the absence of a brain…

  • Ben Petrone

    Did you notice that obama looked very pale.i heard on Fox news this morning that some one else noticed it also.It is about time that Mitt got into the fray Mitt is going to be our next President :)

  • Gene Smith

    In my 70 years I have never seen a man beat down so bad,so easy. That’s what happens when you base your life on a lie.

  • Joey Cosentino

    Best Twitchy article EVER! Matthews is better than Ellen Barkin and that’s saying a lot!

    Does Matthews think that by raising his voice he’s going to come off like a confident & strong Bill O’Reilly??? Instead Matthews comes off like a whiny cry baby.

    I’m embarrassed for Matthews. And it’s got to say something about the propaganda they spew over at MSNBC if even the Potus doesn’t tune in to watch the love fest they have for him!

  • Melvin Bonzarelli

    Chris Matthews likes little boys. Send this email to six friends and ask them to send it along to six friends. Within six iterations, every human being on the planet will be aware of this disturbing accusation.

    • Ogrrre

      And, of course, Melvin, according to Democrat rules, Chris would have to provide documentation to disprove the accusation. Hoist on their own petard!

  • kta

    hehe Chris Matthews with his hair blowing in the wind. Looking like a sad fat little Donald Trump, but without the Money, Wit, Looks or Brains.

  • Gregory Braccio

    Obama doesn’t watch MSNBC??!! His jobs czar OWNS it! #potusfail!

  • David Mashburn

    Barry got handed his shorts. He could not respond because he is not qualified or capable of leading anything. WakeUpAmerica!

  • DrSamHerman

    Chris’ little meltdown was a textbook example of what happens during the “crash” phase of a severe bipolar patient’s post-manic clinical presentation. Had he presented like that last night when I was the psychiatrist on call at the inpatient mental health unit, I would have him restrained, sedated and then started an immediate lithium load with a high target level to regain mood stability. Good Lord…

  • Ed Reed

    Que up BB King’s The Thrill is Gone… the new mantra of the left and we hope it is permanent!

  • Ralph Cramdon

    Boortz said if the debate had gone on for 5 more minutes,Obama would have run over and bit a chunk off Romney’s ear!

  • adriaperez

    The truth hurts Mathews your Barack is a loser and unless he has that teleprompter and you assholes to cuddle him he is nothing, he cannot stand on his own two feet. There was a man on that stage looked, acted and articulated like a president should and Mathews this ones for you Romney Romney Romney feel the tingle yet.

  • jtap

    Obama looked like the Emperor that just found out he was not wearing clothes.

  • charlotte

    mathews is a big windbag but not as big a bag as obuma take that ellan and cher…

  • maisie

    It was fun to watch. But if people keep falling for Obama’s lies, the joy will be
    brief. I really wish Romney would NOT give a foreign policy speech as there is
    NO upside. Obama and bots will immediately twist whatever he says into his
    wanting wars and the American people are unlikely to be swayed on this issue.
    They should be concerned, very concerned by Obama’s lunatic and damaging
    foreign activity, but the MSM has already let him off the hook for the tragedy in
    Libya and the unconscionable lies told afterward. I hate comparisons to Bush
    but the stark difference in treatment Bush would have received had he skated off to Vegas after a terrorist attack was too blatant to ignore.
