MSNBC's Chris Matthews Slams the Left as Not Real Democrats; Calls them "Troublemakers" - Video 12/17/09
Here is video of Chris Matthews last night slamming the Left-wing of the Democrat Party, saying he does not consider them to be Democrats but "troublemakers." Matthews was referring to those on the Left who are defecting from support of President Obama's Health Care push because they believe it does not go far enough toward a "single-payer" National Health Care system. About them, Matthews said:
"I think that a lot of those people are troublemakers who love to sit in the backseat and complain. They’re not interested in governing this country. They never ran for office, they’re not interested in working for somebody in public office. They get their giggles from sitting in the backseat and bitching."Trouble is, without these folks, Obama would have never been elected, and he will have a hard time getting re-elected without their money, enthusiasm, and support.
