“Study It Out”: Woman Calls Obama A Communist and Then Can’t Explain What A Communist Is

This video of Chris Matthews confronting a woman calling President Obama a “communist” pretty much sums up how our political discourse in this country is now devoid of any intellectual content. The woman repeatedly tells Matthews to “study it out” but then seems incapable of explaining what a communist actually is.

Matthews was right to confront the woman and there was little need to editorialize on the scene before the Vice Presidential debate. The further statement that Obama is not an American further captures the blind hate directed against this president. I have been a vocal critic of President Obama but this type of senseless and vacuous rage is an embarrassment to the entire country. While I am not willing to give up on democracy just yet, this woman makes a powerful case for oligarchy. Fortunately I think we can do better despite all evidence to the contrary.

  1. No doubt American Exceptionalism is dead! This and the various man on the street Q&As screams about the dumbing down of America!

  2. I live in the very red end of the state and have had numerous opportunities to have this type of conversation. Most of the time I don’t bother, but if I have the time, I mess with them a bit, hoping I will at least get them to question their own claimed beliefs.

    I am reminded of the story of a famous Zen master, who was known for his skill at argument. A student once asked him what was his secret for winning arguments. He replied, “Just ask them questions until they can no longer answer.?

  3. I have been a vocal critic of President Obama but this type of senseless and vacuous rage is an embarrassment to the entire country.

    Well said.

    We must criticize the errors of state and federal government as responsible citizens.

    But constructive criticism is based on mature knowledge.

    The woman shows us why Agnotology is growing in importance:

    Agnotology “is the study of culturally-induced ignorance or doubt, particularly the publication of inaccurate or misleading scientific data” (Wikipedia; see also Agnotology … Or Is It Agnoiology?).

    (Agnotology: The Surge).

  4. People using technical terms they can’t define let alone apply in a proper context because they are value loaded regardless of whether they are accurate?

    Why . . . that tactic/strategy sounds vaguely familiar.

    Almost as if I’d seen it done here many many many many many times.

    And the Zen masters have asked me to ask you to stop giving away their best secrets, OS. :mrgreen:

  5. “…The further statement that Obama is not an American further captures the blind hate directed against this president…”

    I found this the most incredible and maddening portion of the tape. After being unable to defend what a communist is (was) let alone why she believes Mr. Obama is one, when confronted about the President’s birth, she actually said, “Just because he was born here doesn’t mean he thinks like us.” Like whom? Obviously, the woman couldn’t defend her own inane accusation, so it’s reasonable to assume her objection to the President must be based on something else. Now what could it be? Hmmmmmmmm.

  6. “communism:
    Economic and social system in which all (or nearly all) property and resources are collectively owned by a classless society and not by individual citizens.”

    Read more: http://www.businessdictionary.com/definition/communism.html#ixzz295lwMAtO

    The Pres. doesnt seem to be against private property.

    “it envisaged common ownership of all land and capital and withering away of the coercive power of the state.”

    He doesnt seem to be withering the state away.

    “In such a society, social relations were to be regulated on the fairest of all principles: from each according to his ability, to each according to his needs.”

    The Pres. believes in a little bit of that, wanting the rich to pay a little bit more.

    An economic system in which goods and services are provided through a central system of cooperative and/or government ownership rather than through competition and a free market system.”

    The Pres is for some of that.

    “Corporative state:
    The economic system inaugurated by the Fascist regime of Benito Mussolini in Italy. It was adapted in modified form under other European dictatorships, among them Adolf Hitler’s National Socialist regime in Germany and the Spanish regime of Francisco Franco. Although the Italian system was based upon unlimited government control of economic life, it still preserved the framework of capitalism. Legislation of 1926 and later years set up guilds, or associations, of employees and employers to administer various sectors of the national economy. These were represented in the national council of corporations. The corporations were generally weighted by the state in favor of the wealthy classes, and they served to combat socialism and syndicalism by absorbing the trade union movement. The Italian corporative state aimed in general at reduced consumption in the interest of militarization.”

    Hmmm? A corporatist?

    Whatever he is, he needs to go.

  7. “While I am not willing to give up on democracy just yet, this woman makes a powerful case for oligarchy.”


    There are times when I have to argue myself out of the same reasoning. I think what Dredd said regarding Agnotology is of paramount importance. I believe there has been a conscious dumbing down of the American Public and I think it has been done with malice aforethought, by a coalition made up of the ignorant ideologues, in tandem with many of our Plutocrats. This is readily apparent in the Mainstream Media and in the selections for TV dramas. This effect has also taken place in our schools.

    As far as misunderstanding of what a “communist”, or a NAZI really is we have seen it in public discourse since Obama’s election. Knowing the true definitions and having known real life communists in my life, the idea expressed that the President is either a Communist, Socialist, or even Nazi is one expressed by ignorant people who don’t understand the terms they are using. President Obama, is a centrist, with a very mild left wing lean.

    “You know that she thinks she “owned” Chris Matthews here, right? She’ll be bragging for years. “…so I told ‘study it out’!””

    Chrislrob, you understand her psychology perfectly and it applies macro-cosmically to all these “Teabaggers”, who are ignorant people who think they are wise. The most dangerous humans other than psychopaths, sociopaths and narcissists, are those who are ignorant but believe themselves acutely perceptive

  8. I left it out of the above but I will state it here. People call Obama a communist, Nazi, socialist and/or “not American” as code words for “he’s black”.

  9. Bron,

    Other than Obama has literally done nothing to pursue nationalizing any market segments – even the one’s that should be by their track record as bad actors (Wall Street Big Banks looking your direction, you unindicted criminals) – making the analysis of him being a socialist a non-starter, you finally got it right. He, like every other pol taking corporate campaign graft and doing the bidding of corporate lobbyists, is a corporatist. Which as has been pointed out many times here before is the kissing cousin of Italian style fascism. In that respect, there is no difference between either party or their candidates. They are different in one key way though. I was discussing this very topic with a conservative friend of mine last night and we ended in total agreement. This is a guy who plans to vote Romney, btw. On the level of corporatism and the corrupting influence of money, both parties and all candidates for them are exactly alike. They don’t represent the people anymore, just the corporations. This is a situation we both agreed will eventually end in disaster, the form of which precisely to be determined. Where they are different is that the Democratic Party has no spine at all to stand up for the Constitution properly (simply prostitutes) and the Republican Party is infested with extremists, some of whom border on Nazis (not hyperbole, not Godwin’s law, but by objective description of their far right oppressive agendas).

    But I am very pleased with you for getting your definitions in an acceptably accurate form for a change, Bron.

    Did the aliens that replaced Gyges with a nearly exact duplicate stop by your house too?

  10. Mike S, X2 on both of your statements, well said including the agreement w/Dredd. The fourth estate exemplified by (but not limited to) FOX and talk radio has become a fifth column in the political discourse. We need a re-boot of the fairness doctrine and a break up of the media monopolies.

  11. “We need a re-boot of the fairness doctrine and a break up of the media monopolies.”

    Not only yeah, but Hell yeah.

  12. I would label this brief debate on the video as Idiot v Blowhard. Did anyone see Matthews on Jeopardy? His bluster greatly exceeds his knowledge. Of all the Washingtonians he was near the bottom in knowledge, but it didn’t prevent him from huffing and puffing. The sharp ones were Chuck Todd, Robert Gibbs, Chris Wallace, Clarence Page, Katy Kay and Thomas Friedman.

  13. “The sharp ones were Chuck Todd, Robert Gibbs, Chris Wallace, Clarence Page, Katy Kay and Thomas Friedman.”


    We’ll have to agree to disagree on the above. I think all of them are of the “pundit” class, which makes them tools/fools in my book, especially Friedman. Of course we both do represent different political viewpoints. As to Matthews I think his heart is in the right place, but he projects his own limited view onto the news he is commenting on, so I pay little attention to him.

  14. nick, Whether you like Matthews or not, he has been out front in addressing the racism in this year’s election. I commend him for taking on these tea party types.

  15. This is just the type of comment people who reference the Bible when making their arguments for/against……anything. When asked to provide the passage, they just say ‘it’s in there’. Most often, it isn’t.

  16. Gene H:

    no, I am still me.

    I agree that both parties are in bed with big corporations and that this needs to end. This has been a good deal of the problem for a very long time. I dont care about big corporations being big, I just care that they subvert market signals through the use of government force [regulations]. Politicians usually dont write regulations, lobbying firms write legislation for the purpose of giving their clients/industry an edge over competitors and consumers. It is really an ugly business.

    I obviously havent looked at all the regulations, nor even 1% but the ones I have looked at seem to give an advantage to a firm or product over another. Even your glorious Glass/Steagal act appears to have been written for the purpose of one bank getting a leg up on another bank.

  17. This lady takes the prize for ignorance and lack of any desire to actually learn the facts. Matthews actually did a good job of letting her hand herself in her own stupidity.
    I want to echo what Mike S. and Gene have said about the code words. It is startling the personal and racial attacks that this president has endured.
    The return of the Fairness Doctrine would be nice, but I am not holding my breath.

  18. There are too many people in our country like this “Study It Out” woman who don’t know what they are talking about and who only mouth the talking points of their fearless leaders.


    P.S. She reminds me of the “wonkish” Paul Ryan who can’t explain his ticket’s tax plan.

    Even Paul Ryan Can’t Explain How Romney’s Tax Plan Would Work
    Grace Wyler|Sep. 30, 2012

    Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan struggled to defend his ticket’s tax plan in an interview with Fox News Sunday, saying that it would take “too long to go through all of the math.”

    Ryan and Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney have proposed to lower all individual income taxes by 20 percent, while keeping the plan revenue neutral by ending deductions for high-income individuals. As many have pointed out, the plan is mathematically impossible — in order to keep the tax breaks revenue neutral, popular deductions that primarily affect the middle-class would also have to go.

    Ryan, who is known as a numbers-crunching budget wonk, would presumably be able to explain how the plan would work. But pressed by host Chris Wallace to explain how the tax plan would add up, Ryan ducked.

  19. “Study it out” … Agnotology baby …

    “This morning my administration released the budget numbers for fiscal 2006. These budget numbers are not just estimates; these are the actual results for the fiscal year that ended February the 30th.”

    “One has a stronger hand when there’s more people playing your same cards.”

    “And I suspect that what you’ll see, Toby, is there will be a momentum, momentum will be gathered. Houses will begat jobs, jobs will begat houses.”

    “I’ve reminded the prime minister—the American people, Mr. Prime Minister, over the past months that it was not always a given that the United States and America would have a close relationship.”

    “See, in my line of work you got to keep repeating things over and over and over again for the truth to sink in, to kind of catapult the propaganda.”

    “It’s in our country’s interests to find those who would do harm to us and get them out of harm’s way.”

    “I’m going to spend a lot of time on Social Security. I enjoy it. I enjoy taking on the issue. I guess, it’s the Mother in me.”

    “I want to thank you for the importance that you’ve shown for education and literacy.”

    “In this job you’ve got a lot on your plate on a regular basis; you don’t have much time to sit around and wander, lonely, in the Oval Office, kind of asking different portraits, ‘How do you think my standing will be?’ ”

    “Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we. They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we.”

    “As yesterday’s positive report card shows, childrens do learn when standards are high and results are measured.”

    The Complete Bushisms

  20. It is comical to still see efforts at using the term “communist” disparagingly; that war has been won, although I suspect that during the cold war, most people still couldn’t define the word.
    Regarding not being American; perhaps a little sympathy is due here. Maybe she is referring to how the leadership of either party is really just battling for our tax resources to enrich themselves, their donors, and their party elite; not America, nor Americans.

    Obama was born in Hawaii. That isn’t part of the continental U.S., but neither is Alaska.


    Alaska is part of the North American continent–but it isn’t contiguous with the other forty-eight states that are also situated on the continent.

  22. MikeS, I was merely stating how smart these people are. A year or so ago Wolf Blitzer was on Jeopardy. He should have been on “Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader. I was embarassed for him. To a certain degree I agree w/ you about the “pundit class” but it is edifying to see who has knowledge and who doesn’t, if for nothing than the entertainment value. I can tell you this, these pundits took this competition very seriously. Some people always want to be the smartest person in the room. Page had a sense of humor, none of the others really did.

  23. “I was merely stating how smart these people are.”


    I understand your point. However, I do think actually playing the game “Jeopardy” is not necessarily a true test of intelligence. When I’ve watched Jeopardy in the past, I usually knew most of the answers across a broad swath of categories, but I’m no longer mentally quick enough to summon it to mind, frame it as a question and push the button in less than a second. Also even though having a high I.Q. score took me very far educationally and made up for many of my behavioral deficits as a student, experience has taught me that wisdom is a far greater asset than intelligence. I first began to realize that I was becoming wise in my middle 40’s, when I saw clearly that I didn’t know everything that I thought I did and that in life there were always things to learn.

  24. During the last presidential election the woman with the bedhead hair telling McCain “don’t trust that Obama. He’s an Arab” fell into Democrat’s laps. This year they had to go on the hunt for one and Chris Matthews found her.

    It just further reinforces the fact that “the media supplies the interpretation of events like debates, and that helps shape how voters understand them too.”(John Sides)

    Is it racist code? Certainly, and that had to be injected into one of the debates as clearly as possible.

    Excellent tactical move in advancing that aspect of the overall strategy.

  25. I watched last nights debate and to me Biden was the clear winner in terms of
    substance, but also in debating style. His smiles, grimaces ad head shaking on the split screen non-verbally projected disbelief as Ryan perpetrated lie after lie. Yet today we see pundits and conservatives decry his performance as over the top and disrespectful, forgetting his demolition of the substance of Ryan’s arguments. I expect that because of his skin color and his avuncular appearance, Biden’s efforts will be rewarded and the criticism will disappear.

    The truth was about last weeks debate that Obama was subdued because had he acted in the same way Romney did, he would have been portrayed as yet another angry black men. This is the burden that all people of color who are involved in politics in this still racist country, have on their shoulders. It is at its worst, however, when it comes to black men. They mustn’t seem to be “uppity” or arrogant. They must seem humble, not proud. They are not allowed to be angry, lest they frighten many people, who at a gut level hate Black men because they fear their manhood. I’ve lost many a friend in my lifetime who when speaking in a private setting have shown their bigotry. That bigotry is also mingled with fear.

    Romney’s performance last week displayed arrogance and rudeness, yet he has been praised for this very behavior, whereas Obama is portrayed as having been almost “wimpy”. The truth is in comparing the life arc of both men that is hardly the case, but one of them is burdened with a skin color that has negative connotations in our history.

    For those who think me wrong and that we are in a post-racial country, I strongly disagree and am quite willing to debate the issue, because this is a topic that has long interested me on a political, psychological and sociological level. It wasn’t until my twentieth year on this planet that American blacks were finally recognized as full citizens as least in a federal perspective. However, since 1964 the Viet Nam war intervened with a huge percentage of Black men being drafted; Nixon was elected President due to his “Southern Strategy”; heroin was brought into the U.S. by the CIA as a deal with the Vietnamese in the Golden Triangle for military support; ML King and Malcolm X were mysteriously murdered; and the “War On Drugs” (really a war on Black people) was launched.

    I predict that if President Obama is more forceful in attacking Romney and his lies in this next debate, he will be depicted as being arrogant and angry. Those two A words are codes for hatred of blacks.

  26. nick,

    I’ve known adults and students in my lifetime who were “book smart” and knew a lot of information. They probably would have performed well on Jeopardy. I’m sure they are intelligent. I’ve also know kids and adults who would have been dismal failures on a show like Jeopardy. These people are also intelligent–although not as book smart. I learned over the years–especially through teaching–that there are lots of different kinds of intelligence.

  27. Elaine, I totally agree w/ you. I have believed in different forms of intelligence way before it was taught in schools of education. However, I would expect the aforementioned folks to be book smart. Autistic savants are an extreme example of the different intelligences in which we both believe.

    What about the mineral and fishing rights? Want to own that? How about the timber? Want to send some of that to Japan?

  29. Matt Seniff,
    I think she meant “study it out” meant for Matthews to go look it up because it was her way of saying she did not have a clue as to what the word meant when he pressed her. And Faux Spews says she is a schoolteacher. That is freaking scary.

    I guess we have the answer to Bush’s question, “Is our children learning?”

  30. Matt Seniff 1, October 12, 2012 at 12:18 pm

    I just want to know what
    “Study it out”
    actually means. It makes no sense even in today’s poor english.
    Figure it out for yourself.

  31. nick spinelli

    Blouise, You forgot to mention MCCain called the woman out on that statement.


    Didn’t matter in the least.

    The gift had been given the moment that woman got the mike. Republicans have been able to avoid such an embarrassment thus far so Democrats had to go on the hunt.

    Tactically, it was an excellent move and there is nothing that Romney can do about it … just as there was nothing McCain could do.

    Obama wants race to be one of the issues … he just can’t be seen as the guy who brought it up.

  32. Elaine, I had forgotten about, “Childrens do learn when standards are high and results are measured.”


  33. Blouise 1, October 12, 2012 at 12:27 pm

    Obama wants race to be one of the issues … he just can’t be seen as the guy who brought it up.
    It’s called politics. Would you rather have Sarah Palin? It’s called politics.

  34. Elaine, speaking of race issues, I recall Obama speaking at one of those “roast” dinners. John Boehner was one of the people there. The President quipped, “John is a man of color too. Just not any color known in nature.”

    I am not sure if Boehner blushed or not, because if he did, it did not show through the orange.

  35. I think Otteray Scribe put the right definition on “study it out”. If one studied out Mr. Obama’s record of communism, it would be pretty short study. Here’s an excellent example of the derangement of the right. A communist would have forced a national healthcare plan rather than one that relies on everyone paying premiums to private, for-profit insurance companies. Given that Omamcare is a largely a copy of Romneycare and both derive directly from the writings of Stuart Butler of that commie front organization The Heritage Foundation in the early 1990’s, the real question is whether President Obama is a “severe conservative” or Mitt Romney is a Kenyan Muslim communist?

  36. @rcampbell “Just because he was born here doesn’t mean he thinks like us.”

    Credit where credit is due – at least she got one thing right. There are two fortunate points here: (1) people who do think like ‘us’ constitute, maybe, 30% of the adult population (2) the rest of us, what ever our differences, are willing to take facts into account – unlike the ‘us’ in her statement.

    What ever her deficiencies in reasoning, I kind of like her punch line ‘study it out’. Who can argue with that?

  37. Obama is partly to blame.Back in the day, LBJ would tell crowds to “vote for Democrats, from the courthouse to the White House” and because politicians back then gave active, vocal support to fellow candidates of their party, those candidates in turn would campaign for the entire ticket, and they would have masde sure that false charges and ignorant claims like the woman here made would have been answered loud and clear.

    I think Romney may well become the next president, but I’m voting GREEN party.

  38. Matt Seniff,

    “Study it out” is an expression used by some members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints or, more broadly, “the LDS movement”, as I understand it:


    “When seeking specific guidance, study the matter out in your mind. At times the Lord’s communication will come only after you have studied a matter out in your own mind….But, behold, I say unto you, that you must study it out in your mind; then you must ask me if it be right, and if it is right I will cause that your bosom shall burn within you; therefore, you shall feel that it is right” (D&C 9:7–8). “

  39. “I think Romney may well become the next president, but I’m voting GREEN party.”

    Bill McW,

    What a wonderful solution! Why didn’t I think of that? It’s such an impressive move on your part to force the country out of its doldrums. What a principled man you are!

    The 30-second Rule
    By Paul Krugman
    October 9, 2012

    Hmm. A late thought about the discussion on This Week. I suggested that it was the job of the news media to check on and report falsehoods from politicians. The response of the other panelists was that the media can’t do that if the opposing candidates didn’t make an issue of it — which as far as I can tell makes no sense at all.

    But even granted that, the fact is that the Obama campaign is making an issue of Romney’s falsehoods, or at least trying to. Yet this is apparently considered unworthy of attention, because Obama didn’t make a forceful attack right there on the spot.

    So let’s see if I have this straight: it’s not the job of the press to take on political falsehoods unless the other side makes a forceful case in 30 seconds or less. Glad to see that this has been clarified.

    ‘V.P. Debate Highlights, Songified’
    By The Gregory Brothers

    V.P. Debate Highlights, Songified: The Gregory Brothers present a musical mash-up of the vice-presidential debate between Representative Paul D. Ryan and Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr.
    Published: October 12, 2012

    After watching Thursday night’s heated, partisan vice-presidential debate, we couldn’t help but think what was certainly also on the minds of millions of other disgusted Americans: “Democracy?!? More like DemoCRAZY!!! Electoral College? More like Electoral PRESCHOOL!!! Vice President? More like Vice GET ME OUTTA HEEEEEERE!!!”

    It’s at times like these that we just wish politicians would finally learn a lesson from Mozart, Cole Porter and Rihanna. All that angst, anger and conflict might sound terrible as a spoken sentence, but when transformed into soaring melodies, human troubles can change into timeless art.

    With that in mind, we present you the vice-presidential debate as it should be: Songified. It is our hope that someday, the vice-presidential candidates of the future will learn a lesson and just sing the whole thing to begin with.

    The Gregory Brothers — Andrew, Michael, Evan and Sarah (who is married to Evan) Gregory — are best known for their YouTube music-video mash-ups, including the series Auto-Tune the News and Songify This!, in which they make songs out of non-songs and unintentional singers out of intentional speakers. They live in Brooklyn.

  42. Run out of your cave throw mindless ignorant baseless verbal accusations. Run into your cave and shout out the mightiness of your stupendipity* into the dark. Sit back and be swathed by the echoes from the hard barren rock walls. ….. Then turn on fox news to hear how bright and intelligent you are.

    * Stupidipity ?

  43. She said it quite clearly the real reason. Somebody “told” her that “he does not think like us”.
    Since she can’t define communist, I assume that somebody “told” her. She could have used jsut any old epithet.

  44. Speaking of being “told”, MikeS wrote a book review on a Professor, who scientifically over 35 years of study, had proven the existence of a special type of people.

    BTW, the professor was intensively and repeatedly consulted by John Dean, the truthteller counsel to Nixon during Watergate. Dean was doing a book then and needed his help.

    Simply, an identifiable through a written test type of people, share a strong group of characteristics. They are quite common, in fact, the horror, you might be one yourself. Is it treatable? Don’t know, read the book and find out. Are your friends calling you a RWA? Read it and find out why. ;-)

    The site is here:

    Here is the professor’s comment in 2010 after 300,000 hits on his site where the book is available free of charge for direct downloading. He explains why it is free of charge.

    Since the book he has done other studies, among which one on the Tea Baggers. Also available on that site.

    Professor Altemeyer:

    “….you’ll see that this site has been visited nearly 300,000 times so far. The feedback I’ve gotten from those who have read The Authoritarians enables me to give you the major reason why you might want to do so too. “It ties things together for me,” people have said, “You can see how so many things all fit together.” “It explains the things about conservatives that didn’t make any sense to me,” others have commented. And the one that always brings a smile to my face, “Now at last I understand my brother-in-law” (or grandmother, uncle, woman in my car pool, Congressman, etc.).

    Maybe it’ll work that way for you too.

    Bob Altemeyer
    May, 2010

    And here is our MikeS’ review. Did you see it? Read it now if you like. BTW, he creds ANON NURSE and Dredd for the tip, but the review is his.


    Shall I reveal the secret, nah, beg me first. Are you RWA? I thing we have some here who have identified themselves or been openly accused. Worried if you have the disease? Read it and see.

    I push a lot of crap here, but MikeS name vouches for this. But not my antics, they are mine only. ;-)

  45. Hold on: shouldn’t we be giving this woman credit for telling the truth half the time? She did say that Obama didn’t think like [us] — Presuming the “us” comprises people like her, that’s not only TRUE but SELF-EVIDENT. Give this lady the “Gettysburg Address Award” but make her share it half and half with someone else.

  46. Calling Obama a communist seems just like the overheated partisan rhetoric of calling a Republican (Bush or many others) a Nazi or a fascist. If one is the occasion for deep analysis of the moral and intellectual failing of a particular side of the political spectrum, then so must the other. Or maybe the man or woman on the street occasionally says dumb stuff.

  47. She demands that we “study it out”. “It” being the premise that Obama is a Communist. So I studied all night and found no evidence of this accusation. It is all out. Now that I have done so I wonder what she is. Perhaps a McCarthyite. Perhaps a Mormon (it is a Mormon term), maybe just a dumb complainer with bad sunglasses.

  48. In my opinion, this woman is a Fascist Pawn. WTF does “study it out” mean? She can’t even speak good English. What shade of Red does she think she’s touting? Red State? Red Ass?

  49. Hopefully that day will never come ,but if somehow it does you can be assured obama will announce to America that he is a communist! Most Americans are’nt stupid as this administration blatantly implies! If a person is nurtured all of their life in a certain ideology they dont lose that ideology by becoming potus! This women was right! Americans have been beat down by the progressive communist to the point that they cant voice their opinion without beibg ridiculed! chrissy mathews knows damn well that obama is what this women is saying he is,chrissy mathews among all of the other guilt ridden white communist liberal followers are’nt ready to take that guilt back! And as to jerryball,you are among the most uninformed idolaters that I’ve seen, you cant hide the truth by ridicule and intimidation,yes jeryball grow a brain and research it!

  50. ignorant, racist white woman behaving badly…yawn. matthews should have just ignored instead of giving her a most undeserved 15 minutes of fame. is it a surprise that a segment of the us population is racist and bone ignorant? no. that’s why it is so important for the people with half a brain or more to vote, i am not a supporter of literacy tests, but it clear to me that people like this woman could never pass a basic civics test. anyone who thinks obama is a communist, a socialist, or “foreign,” doesn’t deserve to vote. and what’s the other option? a blue-blooded, real, live oligarch, and his church lady running mate. i wish we could split the country and let the birthers and baggers have their vulture capitalist government. let rmoney take away their mortgage interest deductions, medicare, and social security. let them overturn roe v. wade, and allow all-male legislatures to ban all forms of contraception. they’d be flocking to our country in droves. until then, we cannot let these ignorant lemmings hijack our country ever again. yes…obama is a centrist, but given the choice, i’ll take a centrist over and oligarch any day. rmoney is the classic example of a person who was born with every advantage imaginable, and he is still stupid as a stump, and he has no class or character. another poster boy for white, male affirmative action, just like dubya.
