Chris Matthews on Egypt and Mubarak: 'It Took Obama to Have This Happen'

Noel Sheppard's picture

Chris Matthews on Friday said that Hosni Mubarak's exit from Egypt and the jubilation now happening in Tahrir Square took Barack Obama to have happen.

As soon as he said it on the 5 p.m. installment of MSNBC's "Hardball," the host quipped, "His critics will probably say, 'Yeah, we knew this was coming'” (video follows with transcript and commentary):

CHRIS MATTHEWS, HOST: You know, gentlemen, I’m a little bit jubilant right now, a little bit frisky so I’ll say something that will bother people. But if you have, a lot of the people in this country think the President of the United States is Muslim, which he’s not, he’s Christian. They think he’s foreign born, which he’s not, he’s American born. But they have this attitude about him, the people on the right a lot of them, right? And here he is, and he comes into office, and this jubilant situation in Eqypt, with the first time in our lives we get to see people from the Arab world in a very positive democratic setting. Not as terrorists or not as people fighting Israel, or whatever. Not mouthing epithets against the West, but people like us.

DAVID CORN, MOTHER JONES: Right, celebrating.

MATTHEWS: In a way it’s like it took Obama to have this happen, or it's just so serendipitous.

CORN: (Laughs) Well, I mean..

MATTHEWS: His critics will probably say, “Yeah, we knew this was coming.”

Not just his critics, Chris, but yours as well.

Exactly what has Obama done in this region prior to the protests beginning to make this happen?

Maybe more importantly, Matthews seems to be fogetting the marvelous images that we saw in Iraq in the previous decade when citizens of that nation participated in free elections for the first time in their lives proudly displaying purple ink-stained fingers.

Weren't pictures like this "the Arab world in a very positive democratic setting?"

How quickly shills like Matthews forget when the agenda is to help a president they adore get re-elected.

One can only hope that God forbid Egypt does end up being taken over by a radical Islamic theocracy the same folks giving Obama credit now will blame him then.

But don't hold your breath.

It'll be George W. Bush's fault if that happens.


#1 Where were his hands?

WTF, this guy just a few weeks ago stated that he was embarrassed by Obama and the adminstrations words/actions in regards to Egypt, now he is the leg tingler again?????

Did Oblunder get up every day and risk life and limb to make this happen or did the Arab tea partiers DO IT?

This is beyond the pale.  

If you make poverty easy, you will have more of it. Benjamin Franklin

#2 Tingles will NEVER abandon his beloved Obama...

Never. He may wander off the reservation from time to time, but he will never permanently desert him. Chrissie has a deep dyed case of man love for Obama...He doesn't just love Obama, he loves the whole idea of Obama. Matthews loves his liberalism along with the fact that he is the first African American president. It's all part of the same package for Tingles, and it's one that he'll never forsake.

I believe they call this behavior of wild mood swings, Manic Depressive.

#4 Could it be...

#5 And before he said this

I heard Mr. tingles in aww on how the Egyptian People were able to force Mubarak out without any GUN'S and I was like WTF where did he come up with that analogy or foresight that any Teapartiers were all carrying guns to Tea Party Events ?? the only person sporting a gun was the Gentleman, black I might add was when Obama made an appearance to campaign for another Democrat and there was no Tea Party event what so ever where anyone sported a Gun... mathews can and should go F#%+ Himself !!!!

#6 Without any guns, how did all

Without any guns, how did all those people die?  And seems the military had guns.

Nuke em til they glow; then shoot em in the dark

#7 Noel,

LOL - I hope you have bookmarked this for future reference because I have a feeling you are going to be needing it, and not too far down the road, either, because once the national orgasm currently underway in Egypt subsides, cold, hard reality is going to sink in for those people.

Nothing has changed, really, as the military was running the country under Mubarak, who was a military man himself, and the military is still in control tonight.

I am also hearing polls on the radio suggesting that 60% +/- of Egyptians support the Muslim Brotherhood (although I haven't had time to research that on the net), and that does not bode well for the future of that nation.

#8 What do they really think?

What do those 60% Egyptians think they will get if the Brotherhood was installed as a power versus Muburak?  Do they believe that the MB is a benevolent alternative?

Good grief, it's the Chairman's election all over again, people in this country were so enthralled with DuhOne in the beginning thinking things were going to be great, so now the Egyptians are thinking the same thing, especially the younger people that were in the streets, and they place the Mb in power, do they think things will get better?

Hell no, it won't!  Just look to the USA when people get snookered into putting the wrong person in power!


#9 jon,

I think we are about to see yet another "democratic" revolution go south, and it's going to do so at an alarming rate.

While the Egyptian government has been pretty much secular, Eqypt's people are not.

Right now, they are partying with abandon and not thinking about tomorrow - but tomorrow is coming, and I'm not sure they are going to like it once it arrives.

Even if the Egyptian military does eventually allow "free" elections, my guess is they will fly Jihad Jimmy's ass over there (and if he can't make it, they will get some UN goober) to certify the results, and he will be congratulating the victorious candidates of the Muslim Brotherhood, and that will be that.

Mubarak was no saint, and GWB wasn't perfect, either, but in both cases outside agitators whipped enough people into a frenzy to oust them both.

We got screwed, and so will the Egyptians.

And I am not buying for a second some of the stories I have been seeing that the Muslim Brotherhood are recent arrivals to this party.

They have been working toward this for decades.

#10 Decades is right

It's been like that since the assassination of Anwar Sadat, that was the Brotherhood.  They are a patient lot in their quest for global domination.  This was one more stepping stone for them in egypt.

The Agitator in chief is just following his african-arabian roots since Egypt is part of Africa, so it's a bit more than just a vested interest in what's happening with the protesters.  Never forget(not saying, "don't," but "never") that he did have a meeting with the brotherhood and has been in contact with them, which they have been shown to be allied with al qaeda and hamas.  Translation: that means he's been in league with terrorist organizations which means he should be arrested for endangering the country(yet again!).

The partying we are seeing reminds me of the partying in that south park episode that featured the chairman and insane mccain.

I thought the "young people" in this country were young and stupid coming out for the Chairman, but damn, they are even more stupid in Egypt.


#11 Dave


You've been reading me for years. Don't you know I bookmark everything for future reference?

The Left and their media minions better hope this all works out perfectly, for if it doesn't, they and the president they worship will have a serious amount of blood on their hands.

Stay tuned.  ns


#12 That is the question, NS


That is the question.  Many of us know what WE want to happen, which is to say that there's no Islamic control, no Iran v 2.0, no Sharia government and so forth. 

What would the Left and their media minions consider as something that works out perfectly?  At this point, I honestly don't know because these leftists are whacked in the head, they don't think normally.


#13 Noel,

Like you and most others here, I am hoping events in Egypt turn out for the best given the ramifications for this planet should they not, but recorded history has been predominantly in favor of tyranny, as those who have existed under true freedom are in the extreme minority.

Should things there go south, and given Mathew's revent schizophrenia concerning Obama, I just want to be here to see you get to rub this one in his face - I'm talking complete with whipped cream, filling, crust, along with the pie plate.  :-)

#14 Blame it on the fevers from the Malaria.

I would offer that they already have a great deal of it on their hands.  What remains is accountability for it. You do a great job of presenting it Noel, it is time for Chris to accept it.

W said some wise words while he was President of this country. In the days following 9-11, he said some of the most true possible. He said that those who knocked down our buildings would hear all of us. For a decade now they have indeed heard all of us.  W was perfectly on point - though there is one group left to finish speaking.  It is the TEA party's turn to speak.

Many have long attributed Mathews rantings to the term "liberal" and recently "progressive". It's time to proclaim it to be what it is  "the enemy within".

You know what Chris Mathews?  What Joe Wilson said is accurate about you too. I suggest you be mindful of the rise of the Constitution, for what comes with it is a bit about a subject called Treason.  It is noteworthy that a jury of your peers, based on at least two eywitnesses, is fully empowered to exact capital punishment for that offense. As you laugh about tingles going up your leg, you might want to start considering the ramifications of your actions becoming high voltage going down it.

Take note of the very situation you are "reporting".  Get it through your thick skull that the position of power which protects your lying ways can be gone, eliminated, decimated, in as short a time frame as  ummmmmm 18 days. You think about that Chris Mathews.  Do you think the Liberty movement cannot restore the Constitution here in this country just the same way in the same amount of time?  Be thankful we more civil in our ways and understand that even a saint's patience can be tried to the point of breaking.

Just how hard do you want to push Chris? How far do you want to take it? How endlessly drunk on the perceived power are you?  Oh and Hosni was in a power position for what, about three decades? And you have been in one or another for how long now? Longer? Oh how interesting..........Think it through Chris Mathews, consider the probability theory within that elite mind of yours.

What Noel said is unavoidable and you would serve this country well, not just yourself, to retire. Walk away Chris. Stand down. Admit to your self that you have taken it too far, that you have pushed the ideology so far that entire country's populations, their very societies, are set to explode on the fuses lit by your lies. Think a flushed Koran kind of story. Enough is Enough. Well, in your case, too much is too much. 

Copy and paste, bookmarking, screenshots and video clips with their transcripts = the end of liberal lying with impunity.

Retire Chris. Just let it go. Stop digging. Pull up the covers and take a nap in the bed that you made for yourself.  Live out your days haunted by what you have spent a lifetime doing -   destroying everything that is good and decent about this world. 

That an individual right exists requires that some policy positions be removed from the table of debate.

#15 funny you should make this

Point, as I made a similar comment to many of my FB friends where I basically told everyone that the Egyptian People are going to have one hell of a hangover when the dust settles and finds out the only things that have changed are the names and people who are in control and it might only be until September when the new election are held and they find out the MB will have full control of the Egyptian People and they will have to do this all over again !!!

#16 Be careful what you wish for

Be careful what you wish for Crissy. Eygpt will not end up a democracy and you can't blame Bush for this one.... Well I suppose an idiot like you could.

Non, je ne regrette rien. "You aren't angry because I might be a racist, you're angry because you know I'm right".

#17 It took Oblunder(read Bush) for this to happen.

Noel, Noel.  TSK, tsk.  You know as well as I that no matter what happens, it will have been Bush's fault.  Oh wait!  If it turns out well for Egypt, not America, then and only then will Oblunder take credit.  Remember it is for the youth.

#27 Thanks amyshulk. Yeah, that

Thanks amyshulk. Yeah, that was me in '87. Aboard the USS Germantown on a WestPac. I was out of Pendleton then. Did another one on the Anchorage in '89 so both my floats were to SE Asia; never got a chance to sail the Atlantic.

#28 WestPac

My first time in {1980-84} was as an ASE {Aviation Support Equipment - Electrician} and I was stationed at NAS North Island - no females allowed on carriers at the time so no WestPac for me.

I went into the Reserves, realized I missed the military, so I reenlisted in 1985. I ended up in the SEABEES {BU = Builder} because my rate {ASE } was closed to E-5 women. I did back to back overseas - Bermuda, then Cuba - good fishing!!!

I ended up hurting my back, and though I tried swimming laps during lunch every day, I just could not pass the PT test so I was put on medical hold. About 2 years later I was medically discharged. This was in 1991, when Pres. Clinton/Congress decided to balance the budget (in part) by paying healthy, able, mostly senior people NOT to reenlist. They were paid more than I was, which to this day, I still do not understand.

Your work is outstanding - I rarely had to more than glance to get the gist - since so many here get it too, I agree you should go pro! Talent will out!!!

#49 → Hooray Obama!

Noel, you will, of course, mark this thread for such a time as Obama is blessed with yet another Islamic State bordering Israel.

Far from failure, this is yet another in a long list of successes this President and his band of Liberals has accomplished.

I was hoping he would fail, but foremost in his plan is to have Islam appeased with the fall of JerUSAlem.

And yes, that is my honest belief.

#50 Liberal Media acting like phoney 'psychics'...

Obama, his corrupt administration, AND the corrupt liberal media that lies for him, are all acting like phoney psychics and fortune-tellers.

Their 'predictions' are so vague as to be practically worthless - even harmful.  But easily interpreted as correct after the fact.

In the case of the Egypt business, Obama and every lackwit member of his cabinet issued contradictary statements about all this.  So their bases were covered.  Because they issued pretty much EVERY response that might be made (yes, no, maybe, perhaps), they and their lapdog media apologists can now say it was 'just like they predicted'.

Sorry.  Saying 'something will happen in Egypt' after stuff is already happening is hardly 'brilliance'.  Next Chrissy-boy will be putting envelopes to his forehead and saying that he sees Obama somewhere near a church, or a body of water, and/or something maybe to do with the number seven.

It's Global Warming all over folks.  If it's cold, it's global warming.  If it's hot, it's global warming.  Hurricanes are caused by it, and tornadoes, and earthquakes, and volcanos, and snow, and rain, and hail... et. al.

Tomorrow it will be hot, or cold, and there will be snow, or rain, or a tornado or a hurricane, or maybe fair weather - somewhere.  'Oooh - see!  I predicted that!  It took ME to make it happen!'

If a Liberal/Democrat politician/media figure wants to put their arms around you, or pat you on the back, all they're doing is looking for a good place to stick a knife.

#51 Chris the IDIOT

Why does this idiot keep talking out of his A_ _! This guy has no clue and what is sad he is an American.......Maybe not since he always bashes American's and praises non-American's. Stick to your tingle Chris because you are far from being a reporter. Why they keep you employed is behond me.


#52 How is a military junta

How is a military junta taking over in a coup "democratic"?  I'm not arguing if it's good or bad, or a better/worse situation than before, but whatever it is, it isn't democracy, and I'll be pleasntly surprised if there is ever more than one actual election in Egypt.

After all of this delirious reporting by Matthews and others, it'll be difficult to get the US media to acknowledge if and when things go bad in Egypt.  It'll be completely buried. 

#53 → Get with the program, forest

At least he showed public disgust with Mubarak, thereby signaling his support for an overthrow of the Saudi monarchy.

According to Obama, that too would be a good thing.

As long as they call it "Democracy" it doesn't matter to Obama what happens to the people of the countries.

Egypt is yet another Obama success.  It's his "I am greater than Jimmy Carter" moment.  Elections have consequences.

#54 *YAWN* Is he gone yet?  


Is he gone yet?

#55 Not as people fighting Israel...

Not mouthing epithets against the West...

Somebody needs to hit Matthews with a clue stick.


#56 Camp Obama Should be Cautious About Taking Credit For this...

Time will tell if this is time for celebration in Egypt. Mubarak was a dictator and his departure was just; however, Egypt is an unstable country politically speaking and it will take time to determine what the true intent of the Muslim Brotherhood is for the future of Egypt.

Apparentl, for Camp Obama no lessons were learned from the Iran and Afganistan so called "democratic" elections. The Arab world is carefully watching the stance this POTUS and his Admin are taking.

They (Obama & his play pen staff) may be taking credit for what transpired today in Egypt, but they should be careful that their words and actions may come back to bite them in the near future as the political map of Egypt unfolds after Mubarak's departure.


#57 Be careful what you wish for . . . .

I am one who believes that Obama is ecstatic about the prospect of the Muslim Brotherhood taking power in Egypt. I am one who also now truly believes that there is more than sufficient evidence to question Obama's true allegience.

NONE of the media (including FoxNews) have reported on the stark contrast of Obama's reactions to the uprising in Egypt versus his reactions to the uprising in Iran. He was stone silent when it came to Iran - offered zero support to the protestors - and essentially threw them under the bus. However, he has been very involved and immediately sided and supported with the protestors and threw Mubarak under the bus wtthout hestitation.

I am not a "birther" but I am convinced that Obama cannot be trusted with the country's foreign policy - not because of a lack of competence - because of his true motives and goals which run counter to the people of this country.

What will likely happen in Egypt is that during this period of transition, Iran will begin to flood insurgents into Egypt to destabilize the country and create a need that will allow the Muslim Brotherhood to rise to fill the power vacuum.

#59 Why am I not surprised?

Of course, if a hard-line theocratic regime ends up in power and Egypt goes to war with Israel, how much do you wanna bet Chrissy here changes his tune to "Blame it on Bush and the GOP"?

EDIT: Oops! Shoulda read the rest of the article before I made the post. My bad!

Progressives seem to be completely averse to facts and logic. Apparently, reality has a conservative bias.

#60 The Left hated Reagan.

Now watch as the Left does everything it can to turn Obama into him.

#61 The Leghumper has gone from

The Leghumper has gone from tingly to frisky!!! And.........yeah, Chrissy, it's really obvious that Boy Blunder had this whole Egypt thing figured out from day 1................he covered EVERY side of it - that way when there was finally an outcome, he could act like he had something to do with it.........

#62 What will they say when this goes bad like Iran?

If I had to make a check list of everything that led Iran from being a solid ally with a shady leader to being an pot of evil that vows to destroy the US, you would have to check off every one of those boxes as Egypt goes from being a solid ally with a shady leader to its future.

I wonder if they will still praise Obama when this one goes bad, too.

The press does not have any wins in the win/lost chart in their endorsements of revolutions.  I think the exact same thing happened in Cuba as well.

#63 And we all know what will be

And we all know what will be said should this turn into a disaster like Iran.  It was Bush's fault.  Both of them.  Cheney too.  And I'm sure Reagan had something to do with it.  Just throwing him in there for good measure.

And we all know it will.  Muslim Brotherhood was chomping at the bit to get their collective feet in the door, which would have been the absolute minimum outcome no matter what Mubarak did.  And now their feet are not just in the door.  The door was torn off, the wall ripped down, and the carpet laid for them to get thier claws into everything over there.  So it's nothing more than a waiting game until the theocracy is in place.  Here comes the Sharia and jihad.  Sure as you-know-what.

Hey, I could be wrong.  But judging by the sentiments of most of the people on the streets, democracy there will only last as long as the elections.  And then the real problems will start.

Chrisy has been feeling frisky since he laid eyes on Obama.  LOL  He's forgotten it was a Tunisian fruit seller who set himself on fire because he couldn't get a better job even with a college education that set off the protests there which spread to Egypyt.  He also forgets that Obama was all over the place on Egypy and didn't have a clue as to what was and is going on there but hey let's give a shout out to his boyfriend.

#70 I would lay the odds of this

Democratic thingy in Egypt going south at close to 100 percent. If they don't get a sharia/Iran like government down the road or out an out bloody civil war out of this I'll eat my hat. I am sure Mubarak's ouster was either he is getting old and tired and said "I am outta here". Or he is on the outs with the military and was unable to quell said riots. I will be waiting with bated breath on what Chrissy et all ilk will say when the power vacuum which is Eqypt is filled with a tyrannical government. If I was a Coptic christian this might be the time to leave.

Meanwhile Ann Compton at ABC almost has an orgasm on air as she related how many time the US Defense Sec phoned the Egyptian Defense Sec to give his orders.

How will the media spin all this when it turns to shit and the Muslim Brotherhood of Nazis take over in a few months, bent on starting another war with Israel?

All of the above Mr Obama? --- How about ALL OF THE BELOW, instead.

#73 This is no cause to celebrate

Right now Matthews and his Messiah should both be very fearful of what will be the final result of this revolution. Matthews, of course, is only afraid of Obama and the progressive's possible down fall and not wise enough to be worried about much else. If he were able to think more than five minutes ahead, he wouldn't be so giddy about Mubarak's removal.

As for me, I am very concerned after reading the material from the Muslim Brotherhood and their many affiliates for the past few days. This all seems like a custom made situation for them.

#74 Why is it?

that the "Pharaoh" of the USA listens to every protester on the street EXCEPT the TEA party AND the Iranians!!!!

"I got pie" ...BHO 2011

#75 I See A Bad Crescent Moon Rising

What does Chris mean by "this"? Obama and his appointed Keystone clods had no idea of "this" happening until after the news broke. Perhaps by "this"  Chris was referring to the probability that Egypt will jump on the anti Israeli denounce, renounce, and rebuke bandwagon; thus prompting more violence against Israel. 

#76 Let the Backpeddling Begin

When you consider that the left still bleats on and on about how the US installed the Shaw in Iran, what do you suppose the next spin cycle will be like as they gradually realize that a military coup is what has occurred?  Particularly if, as I suspect, the military is pro US (something the leftists like tingles and his boytoy dreamboat would abhor)?

#77 Damn. .

. . . I wish I could predict the market this well!

#78 I thought the left were totally opposed with the USA

getting involved with other nations politics?????  I guess that goes by the wayside when it involves helping radical Islamists gain control of a country that is an ally of and borders Israel, their cause celeb for hatred.

#79 Bri-boy Suck-Up Tried to Out-Tingle Tingles

Brian Williams popped his head out of the cuckoo clock window yesterday afternoon for a 30-second talking head blah blah and said in his sonorous vapidity:   "Everyone I talked to on the street when I was in Cairo was cognizant  [only big word he knows] of the speech two years ago and its effect on the events here on T Square..." or words to that effect.

Both BW & Tingles are jokes that just aren't funny.

#80 feelings don't make sense

Love is deaf, dumb, blind and ignorant. I think he's in love.

Angry people do and say stupid things.
