MSNBC's Chris Matthews: ‘I’m Not A Bush Hater’ But Bush’s Attitude Towards Bin Laden Was ‘Wise-Ass’

(By Matt Schneider, Mediaite) - Chris Matthews continued the celebration of Osama bin Laden’s demise by recalling how wrong many Republicans turned out to be when speaking about foreign policy. In retrospect, Republican Senator John McCain looked particularly foolish saying it would be naive for then presidential candidate Barack Obama to say he would go into Pakistan to get Bin Laden. Yet Matthews and guest Joan Walsh saved their harshest criticism for former President George W. Bush.

Chris Matthews: “I’m not a Bush hater, but that was wise-ass behavior there. Just wise-ass. I mean this is the rich kid acting like I don’t care about that old girlfriend that dumped me. That was behavioral weirdness right there.”
