Talk Host Michael Smerconish Tells Chris Matthews Why He's Leaving the GOP; Matthews Says He "Admires Saul Alinsky" - Video
Here is video of radio talk show host Michael Smerconish telling MSNBC's Chris Matthews that he has decided to leave the Republican Party and become an independent.
Smerconish endorsed Barack Obama during the 2008 campaign. So his decision is not surprising, since he revealed - along with Colin Powell - he had no commitment to conservatism or to the values of the Republican Party when he endorsed Obama for President.
Of course, Chris Matthews was eating it up. Matthews actually brought up "Saul Alinsky," saying that he admired him "in many ways." Matthews also asked if people like Hannity, Limbaugh, and Beck really believe what they are saying?
Uh, yes, Chris. They really believe in the conservative values and principles they uphold.
