Chris Matthews Allows His Guests To Pretend Romney Should Be Taken Seriously As Someone Who Can Run On Our Bad Economy

In yet another pitiful example of our D.C. beltway Villagers not doing their jobs, Chris Matthews and his panel of the Huffington Post's Howard Fineman and USA Today's Susan Page allowed the viewers of his audience to think that Mitt Romney should somehow be considered a serious candidate for president because he somehow would know something about putting our economy back on track because he was a former business owner.

This is going to be one of the things that I continue to go after these Villagers in the press for until they either finally quit lying about Mitt Romney and his record as a "job creator", or until he drops out of the 2012 presidential race, or until we're in the unfortunate circumstance of somehow having him elected as our next president, in which case the hounding on this matter will no longer make any difference.

I really get tired of it when someone like Matthews or Fineman does it since they get painted as "liberals" by conservative blogs and media which neither of them are. They're both the epitome of most of what is wrong with our beltway press being too close to those they cover and more worried about their invitation to the next cocktail party or who they have access to for their next article or interview instead of doing any honest reporting on those they socialize with or that they they can get some scoop from that talks to them.

Shame on Tweety and on Howard Fineman for painting this guy as some savior for job creation. It's really a pathetic day when we get more honest reporting from a comedy show than what tries to pass itself for a "news" program on our so-called "liberal" channel, MSNBC.

Here's Colbert again on how Mittens should be treated in the press when anyone spouts this "job creator" nonsense.
