In a true “pigs fly!” moment, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews not only complimented a Republican, but even admitted that someone may be smarter than President Obama.
This coming from the man who gets a thrill up his leg when he hears Obama speak.
While peddling his latest book Tuesday on “Morning Joe,” Matthews said:
“I think Ted Cruz is brilliant. I think the President’s met his match in this guy.”
The comment comes after he said last week on the same show that Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, is “a problem for our republic,” as Newsbusters reported, and even referenced Hitler while criticizing Cruz’s 21-hour quasi-filibuster on the Senate floor.
While discussing the government shut down Tuesday, Matthews said Cruz “set this thing up months ago” and that “he knows what he’s doing.”
“And it’s about the baby, Obama’s baby,” Matthews added. “And you can’t cut the baby in half. We learned that in Solomon. And they keep saying, “Please negotiate your baby. Please help us take it apart.”
