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.
