In response to a question by Rachel Maddow on how Barack Obama or John McCain may have responded differently to than Bush, Chris Matthews goes off on the President for irresponsibly squandering the national unity that followed. He then goes on to bash all the neoconservatives who saw the event not as a way to lead the world in a fight against those who attacked us, but rather as an excuse to go after Iraq and pursue their wildest imperial ambitions.
"It is impossible to fail as much as this President has."
John Amato: Since Chris Matthews and so many in the media helped defeat Al Gore, I wonder if he'll take a look at himself in the mirror and know he's been part of that failure. And if John McCain wins the White House it'll be more of the same.
