Hypocrisy on Parade

4 Apr

This clip in from MSNBC’s “Hardball” with Chris Matthews.  The hypocrisy was staggering.  Chris was very concerned over a comment made by Rush Limbaugh earlier in the day in which he stated “Never in my life have I seen a regime like this, governing against the will of the people, purposely,” referring to Obama.

For Chris Matthews to be concerned over this is amazing.  How many times was the Bush administration referred to as the “Bush Regime” by the liberal media?  Byron York has a great story in the Washington Examiner on this.  A search of the Nexis database for “Bush regime” yields 6,769 examples from January 20, 2001 to the present.  Not only was “Bush regime” mentioned in the NY Times 16 times and the Washington Post 24 times, it was also mentioned on his own network, MSNBC.

Most hypocritical of all is the fact that Chris Matthews himself called the Bush administration the “Bush regime” on June 14, 2002.  When introducing a panel discussion about a letter signed by many prominent leftists condemning the Bush administration’s conduct of the war on terror, Chris Matthews asked Al Sharpton, “Reverend Sharpton, what do you make of this letter and this panoply of the left condemning the Bush regime?”
