MSNBC's Chris Matthews: ‘I Got My Job Here Without Ever Showing Any Paperwork From School’

(By Matt Schneider, Mediaite) - The debate over whether it is legitimate to question President Obama about his birth certificate and his academic records spilled over into 'Hardball' [yesterday] as Chris Matthews and Pat Buchanan hurled humorous insults at one another during a heated debate. The MSNBC colleagues clearly enjoyed the back and forth as neither seemed to shy away from revealing their true opinion about Obama’s academic credentials.

Pat Buchanan: “What I want to know is why you don’t want to see the test scores? Why don’t you want to see any of these things? You’re supposed to be a journalist – the people’s right to know!”
