It has become quite expected that MSNBC’s Chris Matthews would snap into some sort of tirade while discussing politics on the air. With the added stress of wondering how his superhero would perform in the hours to come, Matthews had some especially hysterical things to say about Congressman Paul Ryan’s stand on abortion last night before the presidential debate. Here is what he said:
“I think it’s the hottest issue that’s not been exploited. And I use that positively, exploited. I don’t know how this president can’t bring it up tonight. Because there’s a grand canyon of difference between Obama, who’s very pro-choice, and, for example, the Republican ticket this year, which would give 14th amendment rights, whatever that means, life, liberty, and property rights, to a fetus that had just been — or rather, an egg that had just been fertilized, right after sex, if you will. And to have that notion that that would be a person under this personhood thing that Ryan’s pushing, and under the 14th Amendment rights, the platform that Romney’s running on. This is extremism! I say center right tonight; it’s almost like Sharia. You’re saying to the country, we’re going to operate under a religious theory, under a religious belief.”
We found a video of the clip at the Washington Free Beacon.
The Beacon also has great follow up videos from Tuesday night’s debate.
