Chris Matthews, the bombastic MSNBC talk show host who used to say President Barack Obama sent a thrill up his leg now says the nation’s first African-American President “scares me.”
Matthews, appearing on the “Tonight Show” says Obama’s lack of leadership in the the Gulf Oil spill crisis is frightening.
Matthews asked: “When is he actually going to do something?” The talk show host and one-time aide to late Speaker of the House Tip O’Neill added that the President has “been acting a little like a Vatican observer.”
Matthews transformation from Obama lover to critic highlights a growing dissatisfaction with the President that crosses both party and ideological lines.
Obama’s lack of leadership has already cost the Democratic party support of independents who helped put him in the White House and Democrats in control of Congress.
When cheerleaders like Chris Matthews head for the lifeboats you know the good ship Obama is taking on water and sinking fast.
