Political Video of the Day

The thrill up the leg is gone for Chris Matthews:
In this interview he says "I hear stories you wouldn't believe". Well, try me. What journalist would have kept a juicy story about George Bush under wraps? Report what you've heard, Chris. Be a journalist.

I believe Matthews' comment “Not a single phone call since the last election.” was the “story you wouldn't believe.”

To a political animal like Matthews, who viewed Obama as the Perfect Politician, he's just flabbergasted that Obama would be making such a huge faux pas.

Listening to Matthews, Obama comes across resembling the character Daniel Plainview in There Will Be Blood -cold and disconnected. It's as though he avoids befriending those he is here to hurt.

Here's some of the transcript from newsbusters:

MATTHEWS: Their idea of running a campaign is a virtual universe of sending e-mails around to people. No it's not. It's meetings with people, it’s forging alliances. It's White House meetings and dinner parties that go on till midnight, and he should be sitting late at night now with senators and members of Congress and governors working together on how they're going to win this political fight that's coming.

I don't have a sense that he's ever had a meeting. I hear stories that you will not believe. Not a single phone call since the last election.

WITT: Tell me one.

MATTHEWS: They don't call. He never calls. That's the, that’s the message. Members of Congress, I keep asking, “When did you hear from him last?”

WITT: Silence.

MATTHEWS: He doesn't like their company.

WITT: You've just…

MATTHEWS: That's a problem, by the way.
