After Apologizing for
'Terrible' Hurricane Comment,
Matthews Features Bill Maher
for Hitler Jokes

Newsbusters, by Scott Whitlock

Posted By:JoniTx, 11/7/2012 8:32:35 PM

On the same night he apologized for making a horribly inappropriate comment about Hurricane Sandy, Chris Matthews on Wednesday had Bill Maher on Hardball to compare Karl Rove and Republicans to Nazis. After Matthews wondered about Rove's erroneous predictions, the liberal comic mocked, "It was a little Hitler's bunker, wasn't it? I wanted to rush in with a cyanide capsule there. I thought he was going to say, 'I don't want to live in a world without national socialism.'" [See video below. MP3 audio here.] Matthews himself got into the act, comparing Rove to Muhammad Saeed al-Sahhaf,

I don't get it, I watched the clip of Karl Rove, and I do not think he was over the top at all! I have no idea what they were watching...

That being said, the comments that come from Maher and Matthews are deplorable, disgusting, and SO inappropriate. I wish they didn't have a platform to spew their hatred.

Matherws never said I'm sorry or I apologize. Wasn't there an incident recently where someone didn't say those words and was hammered for it?

By the way, those republican guys running for the senate who made comments about rape and abortion apologized repeatedly and were never forgiven by Mathews or the jerks on MSNBC.

I pity Matthews . He is one of those
'recovering alcoholics and catholics' who gave up drinking, not because he hit bottom but because he was faced with an ultimatum. He hates himself and is too self- involved, like Maher, to understand that most people see through them. 15...14..13..12...

I'm curious. I see how networks such as Fox will remain busy and relevant for the next four years as we claw our way through this second term, but I don't see how networks such as MSNBC and CNN will survive. Their water-carrying talents are not needed now. I don't know how they will be relevant to an electorate that is satisfied with last night's victory and just wants to see what Snookie is doing while they recooperate from their latest abortion.

Only those of us who lived through World War II and witnessed the G I troops liberating the camps and what they found...we see no humor in using the terms Hitler, Nazis, etc. associated with comedy.
Mr. Maher and Mr. Matthews, neither who experienced this first hand have even an idea of good taste. I say to them, "Shame upon your house".

Karl Rove is such an inviting target. It was Karl Rove's idea to offer seniors more drug largesse in 2004. He thinks he is so smart, but he has damaged the Republican brand more than any other person. I wish Karl Rove had disappeared from the scene many years ago.

One of the things I learned in AA is that there's a HUGE difference between being "dry" and being "sober". Sober people are in recovery and are working hard to change everything about their lives and making amends to those whom they've harmed through their drinking. Dry people are simply not drinking and are angry and bitter about it. They make everyone around them miserable, they are resentful about not being able to drink and see themselves as victims. Matthews is dry.

It is obvious that none of the liberals have read Sun Tzu. They only seem to know Alinski, ridiculing their enemies when they are victorious.

When you have bested your enemies, you don't taunt them (unless you are Islamofascist -you just can't help yourself from mutilating dead enemies). You only get them motivated to fight to the death and not help your cause in the long run. The death of conservatism has been repeatedly foretold, but if the Tea Party rallies bears any resembles to reality, I think the rumor of it's death is premature. Team Obama has just sealed the fate of the next Dem candidate with their big mouths. The next fight will see even more conservatives signing up for the cause. This is not rosy optimism - this is a logical expectation of the coming years as the malignant narcissist Obama misread his victory for license to kill capitalism in America. I have faith that when the going gets tough, the tough, courageous people of America will say-"Let's roll!"

WASHINGTON — In the days leading up to President Obama’s trip to Europe, the director of the Secret Service, Julia A. Pierson, sat down with the agency’s senior officials to reiterate a message she had focused on during her first year in the job. Although it had been nearly two years since several agents were caught soliciting prostitutes in Cartagena, Colombia, shortly before Mr. Obama arrived there for a summit meeting, Ms. Pierson said the agency remained under scrutiny. Agents should be reminded, she said, to be on their best behavior during the coming trip to Europe, where Mr. Obama

After a contentious Wednesday hearing with IRS Commissioner John Koskinen, South Carolina Republican congressman Trey Gowdy threatened to hold the top tax official in contempt of Congress unless he produces disgraced IRS official Lois Lerner’s emails by the end of this week. Gowdy spoke with Fox News’ Greta van Susteren about Wednesday’s hearing, where a slew of GOP congressmen tore into Koskinen’s claim that responding to the Oversight committee’s subpoena for Lerner’s emails could take years. “All we want are the emails to or from Lois Lerner — I’m not talking about private taxpayer information.

Even with more than two years left in his term, President Obama’s ability to fill many of his administration’s most important jobs is rapidly diminishing. White House officials are scrambling to reassess their confirmation strategy in the wake of two major setbacks this month: the Senate’s rejection of lawyer Debo Adegbile to head the Justice Department’s civil rights division and signs that surgeon general nominee Vivek H. Murthy could go down in defeat as well. On Tuesday, the administration appointed Karl Remón Thompson as acting head of the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel — bypassing the Senate confirmation process

A California state senator once lauded for efforts to make government more transparent was arrested by the FBI in San Francisco Wednesday along with a onetime gang leader known as ‘Shrimp Boy.’ State Sen. Leland Yee and Raymond Chow, were taken into custody after a series of raids by federal and gang task force officials, but the charges against them remained undisclosed. Yee is the third Democratic senator to face charges this year. He was scheduled to be arraigned in federal court in San Francisco on Wednesday afternoon.

While Houstonians were enthralled by the massive flames and smoke emanating from an unfinished apartment complex in Montrose, national media outlets turned their attention toward this: A YouTube video surfaced of a construction worker who managed to successfully flee the hellish scene on West Dallas around noon Tuesday. That video has since garnered over half a million views and is being shared around the internet by outlets like Gawker and BuzzFeed.

For the second week in a row, the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 and Russia’s annexation of the Crimean peninsula kept cable news’ coverage Hillary Clinton — who currently holds no office and has not announced a candidacy for one — relatively low. Once again, MSNBC was maintained more of an interest in Clinton in the face of more pressing stories, accounting for considerably more segments and time spent on Clinton — though their numbers last week were still low compared to peak Clinton coverage of last month. Hardball host Chris Matthews alone logged more time on the hypothetical candidate

WASHINGTON —Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) plans to reimburse his campaign more than $16,000 for purchasing holiday gifts from his granddaughter´s jewelry business. The Federal Election Commission sent Reid’s campaign a letter last week asking it to provide more information about payments listed as “holiday gifts” on its 2013 year-end campaign finance report. The filing lists two payments in October 2013 to “Ryan Elisabeth” totaling $16,786.93. A Reid aide confirmed that "Ryan Elisabeth" is the name of a company owned by his granddaughter Ryan Elisabeth Reid. The aide described the gifts as trinkets — coasters, picture frames, jewelry —

U.S. Border Patrol agents, in conjunction with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) recently disclosed the increasing practice of releasing “low threat” illegal immigrant detainees to address the over-crowding of immigration detention centers in south Texas, according to official confirmation of local reports. One south Texas television station, KRGV, recently reported instances of women and minors claiming to have been recently released from immigration officials with “documents that allow [them] to travel anywhere in the United States.” Released individuals claimed their federal instructions stated they were not legally allowed to work and could be subject to further immigration hearings.

However, unlike election day, the Washington Post says the Obama administration will give people several weeks – until mid-April – to enroll.

Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld has said that ´a trained ape´ could do a better job managing American interests in Afghanistan than President Obama. The retired Republican made the insult while doing a phone-in interview for Greta Van Susteren´s Fox News show on Tuesday. He argued that the President made a serious error by failing to negotiate a status forces agreement with Afghan President Hamid Karzai. Gawker points out that such an agreement would effectively commit the United States to having a certain number of troops in the country for a number of years beyond the already-agreed-upon plan which

A pair of potentially catastrophic cases will be argued before the Supreme Court on Tuesday. These cases are brought by privately held, for-profit corporations that are arguing their religious convictions should preclude them from offering employees the health insurance required by law. Specifically, these private employers don’t want to allow their employees’ insurance to cover some forms of birth control because, contrary to medicaland scientific evidence, they believe some birth control causes abortions. Corporations are not people. Corporations cannot have religious views. If religious rights are extended to corporations, it puts us on a slippery slope where any private company

Media Matters, the website of choice for Fox News haters everywhere, attacked the cable news network on Monday for using the term “homosexual” in its programming — advancing the peculiar argument that the scientific term has a “pejorative connotation.” The online “media watchdog” contends that calling gay people “homosexual” is “a practice that’s quickly falling out of favor with major news outlets due the term’s often pejorative connotation and frequent use by opponents of LGBT equality.” Fox News, they chide, “has yet to update its language when referring to gay and lesbian people.” Buttressing their argument?

The Obama administration is prepared to give prospective Obamacare enrollees another half-month to signup for insurance coverage through the Affordable Care Act website, healthcare.gov, treating the law´s March 31 regulatory deadline as a formality for Americans who claim they tried in earnest to sign up in time.

As the U.S. Supreme Court weighed the constitutionality of a contraception coverage mandate Tuesday morning, a federal appeals court heard a separate legal challenge that could have much more sweeping implications for the future of President Obama´s health care law. And if the oral arguments before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit are any indication, it’s time for the White House to start sweating over a lawsuit that up until now has flown relatively below the radar. At issue in the case are the subsidies that the federal government provides for individuals purchasing insurance through Obamacare. Though the text
