Are the Democrats Sensing Defeat? Ask Chris Matthews.

Are any of you Conservative news junkies sensing what I’m sensing?

Namely —

It seems the Leftist media are finally sensing defeat in November.  And I mean really sensing it. The willful self-deception that they’ve cultivated for so long is crumbling.  Their messiah is false.  He’s failed.  And rather miserably at that.  And he may well take the party down with him in just a few weeks.

Why do I think they’re sensing defeat?

One of their media princelings, Chris Matthews, the bloviating, spittle-spewing host of MSNBC’s Hardball, shifted rather abruptly into defensive alibi mode on the August 31 edition of his show, less than 24 hours after Mitt Romney’s RNC acceptance speech.  Matthews began slathering blame on “Republican opposition” for Obama’s failure, this time including a freshly announced conspiracy, ostensibly hatched “in secret” back in 2009, to oppose the President’s policies.

Short memo to Chris:  The opposition opposes.  That’s what they do.  Especially when your messiah sets about to do what he’s done. And every minority party seeks to regain the majority.  It’s nothing personal, okay?

But more importantly —

What Obama failure are you talking about?  So now Obama has failures?  Are you now implying he’ll lose the upcoming election?  Are you seeking to lay off the blame for that in advance?

Sheesh.  This is quite a shift for a mawkishly liberal, self-delusional, sycophantic, Obama camp follower like you, no?  Has that 2008 tingle up your leg migrated to a 2012 chill up your spine?

What happened?  Did you watch the RNC speeches that your network wouldn’t air?  Were you frightened by the depth of the Republican bench?  (If so, eat your heart out, pal.)    Did you mentally compare Paul Ryan to Joe Biden and suffer a wave of panicky nausea?

I occasionally enjoy your show for its unintentional humor, but the sea change in your August 31 show was positively delightful.  Please do it again on your next show.  Please.  As the RNC mystery guest said: Go ahead. Make my day.
