Hayward: No, I'll tell you what was bad. The sneak attack on our economy, the dress rehearsal of Indy bank, when Chick Schumer helped get that started and the guy in the background George Soros manipulating all the currency.

Matthews: What?

Hayward: You want to keep that going?

Matthews: You mean the economic situation we faced right now...JD you can talk fast but I don't know what you're talking about.

Chris Matthews brings on J.D. Hayworth and Harold Ford Jr. to talk about the stimulus bill. When Matthews pins down Hayworth on whether we want another eight years like what we had under Bush. Hayworth goes after him for potentially wanting to run for the Senate. Apparently even Matthews who routinely talks over his guests wasn't quite prepared for the thuggishness of J.D. Hayworth.

Apparently Mr. Hayworth's idea of bipartisanship is corporate Democrats voting with Republicans.

John Amato:

C&Ler JC emailed me after he saw this yesterday and said that Hayward must be on a straight diet of FOX News as he went off the rails trying to debate the stimulus plan.

I just watch former Republican Congressman JD Hayworth of Arizona blame the current economic mess on Sen. Chuck Schumer and George Soros. Chris Matthews tried to get him to admit that the Republican policies of the last eight years were responsible. It was like the crazy Minnesota Republican Michele Bachmann moment on Hardball. There is a reason that JD is a former congressman losing in a red state.

Hayworth, the EX-Congressman from AZ. is the perfect example of what the Republican party is. They're a party of insane people parading around with the American flag draped around their shoulders while James Dobson whispers in their ears that gays are trying to destroy the world. Let them obstruct and perform like the sideshow---circus acts that they've become. Bring it on JD, you are the perfect messenger for a message-less and dangerous ideology.
