Guess how long it took Chris Matthews to blame ‘far right’ for terror attack?

As President Obama addressed the nation Monday evening in the aftermath of the bombing in Boston, he said “there are no Republicans or Democrats — we are Americans, united in concern for our fellow citizens.”

Apparently, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews chose to exclude himself from that statement.

During coverage of the event, Matthews was quick to speculate on who he thinks may be responsible: “Normally domestic terrorists, people, tend to be on the far right.”

He then reconsidered, according to Newsbusters, and suggested: “That’s not a good category. Just extremists — let’s call them that.”

The MSNBC host then commented on a reported explosion at John F. Kennedy’s presidential library in Boston, implying it could be a personal attack on the Democratic Party:

“But going after the Kennedy Library, not something at Bunker Hill, not something from the Freedom Trail or anything that kind of historic, but a modern political figure of the Democratic Party. Does that tell you something?”
