Chris Matthews To Interview Obama Thursday
It's about as significant as Joseph Goebbels interviewing Adolf Hitler. Matthews is one of the foremost of the propaganda machine defending Mr Obama even when he does things that are completely indefensible. It's like Obama is playing a video game on easy mode with all cheat codes enabled.

Wanna shock the world? Have somebody like Sean Hannity interview him -- somebody who will actually challenge the man in every area. Somebody who is ideologically opposite from the president. How does he answer his critics? How does he defend himself against those who disagree with him? We will probably never know.

At this point even liberals are calling Obama a liar. You have to be deaf, dumb, and blind to trust anything Obama says.
As i said it will be an interesting interview no matter what side of the political fence you are on but if your preconceived notions are such that you cant even bring yourself to watch what the man says in an interview its going to be rather disingenuous for you to then offer your take on the interview that you never watched or only watched through carefully edited FOX clips of the event.
Cmon kidkaos grab a beer pull up a seat and enjoy the interview, think how much fuel you'll be able to add to the rightwing fire the next day..

So can you name me one (1) politician that has never told a lie? You really never believed the George Washington and the cherry tree story...I should hope. Anyway, different lies have different consequences, you think?

I'd say you're pretty much intentionally missing the point. Yes all politicians are liars to one degree or another. It's part of the whole political game. That is no excuse for giving any of them a free pass for bad behavior. We should all demand a higher standard of honesty from our elected leaders. Giving any president a pass "because he's on my side politically" is an absolutely terrible idea.

There should be no partisanship to things like demanding answers in the face of controversy. The same people nailing George W to the cross for invading Iraq (and rightfully so) should be just as vigilant demanding answers about things like Fast and Furious, Benghazi, the many problems with Obamacare, etc.

This, indeed, is the biggest problem we have as a country right now. When you have the media providing ground cover for you, there's no limit to what you can do.

However i guess if all one believes is that its all lies and media manipulation and have your preconcieved ideas on all issues cast in stone then by all means dont waste your time tuning in, you can tune into an overly biased recap on FOX news to garner the correct rightwing take on the interview rather than listen to the President himself and come to your own conclusions. ..
Just as every alcoholic takes the first step by admitting they have a problem, you need to admit to yourself that Obama is a liar. He's lied on numerous occasions, and there's no reason for anyone to believe that a Chris Matthews/Baroke Obama love-fest is as scripted as professional wrestling. Obama would NEVER consent to a cold interview on national TV, because he's a HORRIBLE public speaker when it comes to impromptu speech.

It will prove to be an interesting interview. Before the interview starts, Mr. Matthews will be known as "Chris".

During the interview, he'll likely slip into his 'other' name, "Neal and Bob".

Default Chris Mathewes interviews the President on Thursday.

I'll try to catch it. Matthews knows his way around DC and has been on the inside of congressional politics. Probably be a good interview.

Why would we want to watch him get soft ball interviews. It's all propaganda but you will tune in to get your fill.

You say if one believes it is all lies???? Well I am one of those people who lost their insurance so I know for a fact that he lied. If his lips move he's lying.

Obama just came on tv, reaching for the off button, ok it's off. Obama made it clear he doesn't care about people like me and doesn't listen to the American people why should we listen to him and his propaganda.
