National Review Online -- Chris Matthews is already bracing for a disappointing November for Democrats, and he sees little that can be done to change that outcome.
“It’s going to be very hard to hold the Senate — I think the Senate goes,” he said on Morning Joe on Thursday. “I think we heard from the Ghost of Christmas Future this week; they’re going to lose the Senate,” he added, referring to Republican David Jolly’s victory Tuesday in Florida’s special congressional election.
Matthews offered his own campaign advice for Democrats if they want to minimize the damage this fall: Go all-in on scare tactics. He encouraged Democrats to up the ante on various issues, such as framing voter-ID laws as attacks on minorities and pro-life measures as attacks on abortion rights.
Blog author’s comments – I do hope Chris Matthews is right about the Democrats losing the Senate. His advice for the Democrats in the November election, they should go all-in on scare tactics where everything is a war and all of their opponents are racists. How is that different from any other election? Matthews basically admitted that the Democrats have nothing to run on except scare tactics. This is one time I will agree with him.
It used to be that journalists dealt in truth, how times have changed. Consider what's occurred...here we have an on-air "journalist" at a major "news" network openly calling for employment of subversive propaganda tactics in order to sway electorate to a political agenda through false pretense. What else would we expect from anyone at MSNBC? And its not only them but almost all so-called “journalists” are doing their best to retain the Senate for Obama and the Democratic Party.
