According to MSNBC dolt Chris Matthews, his hero has let a good crisis go to waste.
Hundreds if not thousands of people are dead due to a devastating earthquake and tsunami in Japan. But at least it gave Barack Obama an avenue to remind everyone he was born in Hawaii. That's the silver lining for MSNBC's Chris Matthews.Horrific carnage like most have never before witnessed today and the first thing Chris Matthews, serious newsman, thought of was how Obama can capitalize.
"Was this sort of a good opportunity for the president to remind everybody that he grew up in the United States and Hawaii?"
That's a question that Chris Matthews posed to MSNBC host and White House corresondent Chuck Todd about President Obama taking a question from a Japanese reporter during a news conference earlier today at the White House.
Matthews pegged this question on the fact that there are many persons of Japanese heritage who live in the Hawaiian islands, which were themselves impacted by smaller tsunami resulting from the earthquake.
"That's the first thing I thought of," Matthews insisted. "Such a large number of people believe he grew up in [Kenya], they're buying this thing that's coming from Huckabee," Matthews insisted.
