Thank God Chris Matthews Is Not On The Supreme Court
One thing to be thankful for.
According to Chris Matthews, it's unconstitutional to interrupt or challenge the president of the United States. Although I think that this is another of those rules that only apply when we have a Democrat in the White House.
Matthews played a video clip of the exchange, in which Romney accused Obama of cutting the number of oil and gas permits awarded on federal lands:Excuse me. We do have a constitution. And it does not set the president above criticism. If that's the kind of nation Matthews admires, he should move to North Korea.
ROMNEY: How much did you cut them by?After the clip ended, Matthews seemed appalled. “I don’t think [Romney] understands the Constitution of the United States,” Matthews said. “He’s the president of the United States. You don’t say, ‘You’ll get your chance.’”
OBAMA: I’m happy to answer the question.
ROMNEY: All right. And it is — I don’t think anyone really believes that you’re a person who’s going to be pushing for oil and gas and coal. [Gestures.] You’ll get your chance in a moment. I’m still speaking.
OBAMA: Well –
ROMNEY: And the answer is I don’t believe people think that`s the case because –
ROMNEY: — that wasn’t the question.
ROMNEY: That was a statement.
