Chris Matthews Loses That Tingling Feeling… For Now

Chris Matthews Loses That Tingling Feeling… For Now

This won’t last. Chris Matthews is in love with Barack Obama. I’m not being hyperbolic, either. This isn’t about a a man-crush or even partisan worship. What Matthews feels is way beyond that. The “Hardball” anchor is deeply in love with the President. It’s not a sexual thing, but it is romantic and unrequited.

How else to explain Tweety McTingles’ erratic and ongoing emotional tingle-osity:

President Obama “obviously likes giving speeches more than he does running the executive branch,” Chris Matthews said tonight.

Yes, you read that right: The MSNBC host who in 2008 felt a “thrill going up my leg” after hearing Obama speak has grown disenchanted. Tonight’s episode of Hardball saw Matthews delivering a rare, unforgiving grilling of the president as severe as anything that might appear on Fox News.

Matthews is Charlie Brown and Barack Obama is his Little Red-Haired Girl.
