You know every politician is taken to task for such public gaffes as Chris Matthew’s latest bomb. Byron York dissects him thoroughly for his latest comment on the use of “regime” to describe the Obama administration. Apparently the TINGLY ONE had never heard such a vitriolic term used to describe a U.S. presidency.
It seems that Chris Matthews forgot the thousands of time the term “Bush regime” came up in the mainstream media, as well as his own use of the term.
From York’s editorial:
Finally — you knew this was coming — on June 14, 2002, Chris Matthews himself introduced a panel discussion about a letter signed by many prominent leftists condemning the Bush administration’s conduct of the war on terror. “Let’s go to the Reverend Al Sharpton,” Matthews said. “Reverend Sharpton, what do you make of this letter and this panoply of the left condemning the Bush regime?”
