Truth-Telling on Hardball About Obama and the Race Card

Filed under: 2008 Election — DRJ @ 7:48 pm

[Guest post by DRJ]

Newsbusters’ post on tonight’s panel discussion at Hardball (without Chris Matthews) says the panel agreed that Barack Obama played the race card when he accused John McCain of saying that Obama “doesn’t look like the other presidents on the currency:”

“But what makes the punditry panel’s unanimity notable is that no one would accuse them of being McCain backers, and what’s more, that they turned up on Hardball. Surely Chris Matthews, were he not on vacation, would have found one diehard to deny reality. But with Mike Barnicle guest-hosting, a consensus of truth-telling broke out.”

  2. Wow. That is great.

    Now if Keith Oba-mann ever makes a critical comment after an obvious slip, Obama’s game is over.

  3. I’ll bet Chris Matthews is swearing off any more vacations until after the election. I would love to have seen his reaction had he watched the show. Priceless.

  5. “But with Mike Barnicle guest-hosting, a consensus of truth-telling broke out.”

    Sure. Because as we all know Mike Barnicle is a racist.
