Matthews: Dems Have To Talk About Issues That ‘Aren’t Really Well Received’

MSNBC host Chris Matthews stated that Democratic candidates have to talk “about things that aren’t really well received” on Tuesday’s “Hardball.”

Matthews said, “[I]n the ’50s and ’60s, and the Kennedy races…back then, being a Democrat was great. You talked about unemployment. You talked about jobs. You talked putting people to work. You talked minimum wage. You talked about Medicare. Now you’ve got to talk about guns, which some people don’t want to hear. You’ve got to talk about how coal is bad for the country and bad the world. You’ve got talk about same-sex in a part of the country that isn’t too keen on that kind cultural stuff. Abortion. So, all all of a sudden you’re talking about things that aren’t really well received. But in the old days, a Democrat could just say, ‘A lot poverty here, let’s do something about it.'”
