As NewsBusters previously reported, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews had an on-air meltdown Wednesday after the presidential debate.
“I don’t know what he was doing out there,” Matthews said. “He had his head down, he was enduring the debate rather than fighting it. Romney, on the other hand, came in with a campaign. He had a plan, he was going to dominate the time, he was going to be aggressive, he was going to push the moderator around, which he did effectively, he was going to relish the evening, enjoying it.”
“We have our knives out,” Matthews said about his show continuing to do their best to defend Obama and his policies. “We go after the people and the facts. What was he doing tonight? He went in there disarmed.”
“What was Romney doing tonight?” Matthews said. “He was winning! If he does five more of these nights, forget it! That’s my thought.”
