    is the popular crowd. I do find his support for Obama sincere, and he is not just looking for the popular crowd. I think in his heart he beleives what Obama stands for, he just feels justified in stating it these days.

    •  He may be sincere, but he lacks the (4+ / 0-)

      courage of his alleged convictions.  I would never trust him.

      •  There are not too many in his line of (5+ / 0-)

        work who don't lack the courage of their convictions. They get paid the big buck for walking the corporate line. Just think back to the way these jerks slammed Gore in the lead up to 2000. Even those at MSNBC, who were getting their marching orders from Jack Welsh, an ardent Bush supporter. I also didn't hear too many at MSNBC rake Rick Santelli over the coals with his "Are you listening Presdient Obama" rant. They all walk the coporate line, their livelihood depends upon it. The big money they get paid and the renewal of their contact buys lots of things, loyalty to the one who is paying their salary, and somehow it tends to make them desert the courage of their convictions, Mathewes is only one of many, he can not hide it as well as the others, so don't be fooled, those you see on t.v. getting paid the big bucks have all sold out somewhere along the line.

    •  Tweety has been with Obama (7+ / 0-)

      since N.H. where being in his presence sent a thrill up his leg.  OTOH, it was only a few years ago where he drooled over Bush in a flight suit.  He delighted in calling Hillary's laugh a "cackle" and derided her qualifications but now acts like a teenager with a crush on her as he praises her knowledge and abilities as SofS.  You never know where he is from day to day.  Only certainty is his child-like delight in being close to power.
