    Chris, I saw you sitting quietly and I wondered how far that republican guy could go before he pushed your bottons. It did not take too long. Chris, I've never been prouder of you. Keep up the good work. I can't believe the lies that guy was saying. Thank goodness, you are not afraid to speak up. They should have let you speak longer. I watch your show every day.

    Hooray for Chris Matthews on Morning Joe today!  He is exactly correct. The comment by Romney is racist. The entire "birther" thing is racist. If Herman Cain had made this comment, it would not be a joke, it would not mean anything.  Nobody asks for Romney's birth certificate because he is a white guy.  Maybe Romney is not a racist, but he is certainly willing to take advantage of the racist mindset.     
    The fact that he pals around with Donald Trump and makes comments like this means he will accept votes from racist  people solely because he is a white guy. The "birther" thing,  the Muslim thing are all racist.
     But worse than being racist,  they are lies. Romney knows  racist people will accept lies about a black person, even if they know that they are lies. This is the lesson from "To Kill a Mockingbird."  I suggest that Tom B. and the other commentators should read the book.

    That was the longest stretch (from Mitt Romney's joke to the race card)  I have yet to witness.  Everyone looked embarrassed except Chris Matthews, who looked like a rabid dog, complete with spittle.  Why would Matthews want to make himself look like such a fool?  Was he, perhaps, just trying to drum up some ratings for his show?  Really hard to understand why he would want to drum up that fifties racist mind-set, just when this country can site some progress on the racism front.  Does he think that President Obama was elected entirely by black democratic liberals?  Duh!

    Congratulations to Chris Mathews.  Finally, we have someone who is willing to stand up and respond to the nonsense that the Republics hope to sell.  Chris Mathews is intelligent and articulate and forceful when appropriate.  There are those in our society that want to pretend that racism does not exist.  There are those that want to believe that racism is some "fifties notion".  Well Chris Mathews successfully called all of these people to end the attacks on the democrats and the President.  We cannot excuse Romney's remarks in Michigan as those of an in artful comment.  Romney is not a good spokesman for himself, nor the Republicans nor the nation.

    Thank you for taking on Reince Pribeus on Morning Joe this morning.  He is really a difficult person to even listen to.  The birther was not humor, and it was not a mistake.

    Thank god we have people like Chris Mathews, Lawrence O'Donald & Rachel Maddow! People who won't just sit back and take the nonsense that rabid dogs like Reince Pribeus love to spout daily to further their own selfish cause. If only the rest of these so called "political" commentators would call out these phony politicians and their supporters when they lie as they do. Andrea Mitchell (for one), all of Fix Notnews, and most of CNN are famous for just sitting there and nodding her head when she hears some absolute BS from these people and it makes me want to scream!

    Rachel had a great comment last night on Romney birther bigotry "joke".
    You laugh at a joke-it was not a joke-the bigots all cheered.
