"A wise and frugal government which shall restrain men
from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government."

Ultra Liberal Chris Matthews Spews: Rick Perry Would Have Opposed Integration, Takes Back 'Bull Connor' Line Eventually

Looks like Chrissy Matthews has the tingle back up his leg for Obama.   If NBC had any ethics left, they would fire Matthews.  The Obama media talk about Perry's comments on Bernanke but Matthews just called Perry a segregationist which is totally demeaning without an ounce of credibility.  Matthews knows nothing about the Texas Governor and it shows that he is nothing but a knee padder for Obama.  Looks like the racism charges are going to be flying again in this campaign.

On the far right Perry gets attacked for being soft on illegal immigration and on the far left for being a segregationist.  Perry sure has upset the political apple cart.  This is one of Matthews more nasty attacks against someone who has gone out of his way to make all Texans who are here legally feel welcome.  I am stunned at this crap out of Matthews and considering what he has said against Republicans over the years, that takes a lot.

This attack by a member of the Obama Media has hit rock bottom for being truthful, ethical, and having any class.  Matthews has none of the three.
Chris Matthews Spews: Rick Perry Would Have Opposed Integration, Takes Back 'Bull Connor' Line

One day after trashing Rick Perry as "Bull Connor with a smile," MSNBC's Chris Matthews took the statement back. But he also trashed the Republican presidential nominee, saying he probably would have opposed racial integration of schools. 
The Hardball anchor played a clip of Barack Obama touting bipartisan acts from the late Dwight D. Eisenhower. Matthews brought up Eisenhower's role in desegregating public schools and spewed, "Do you think Rick Perry would be for that? Do you think he'd be cheering for Ike today if he brought the troops in to desegregate the schools in Little Rock? I don't think so!" [MP3 audio here.]
He exclaimed, "They'd be seceding if Eisenhower was president!" 
On Tuesday, Matthews compared Perry to Bull Connor, Alabama's segregationist Commissioner of Public Safety. (Democrat Connor turned attack dogs and fire hoses on civil rights protesters in the '60s.) 
Matthews actually addressed this comment on Wednesday, admitting, "I compared him to Bull Connor with a smile yesterday. Maybe that was too far, but I'm still learning about this guy."
Talking to GOP consultant Matt Mackowiak, the host added, "He talks about secession. He talks about states rights. He's got all the idiom, Matt, of the guys who hate civil rights." 
At that point, Matthews refused to apologize: "So, I am suspicious. Maybe I should take back the Bull Connor, but not yet." 
Finally, 44 minutes into the program, he recanted, "I think I overstated it by saying that this guy Rick Perry is Bull Connor with, with a smile. But, I'll tell you- and I'll take that back. I really think I gotta be careful learning this guy."
