Chris Matthews doesn’t want us to call POTUS by name, for the obvious reasons

Font Size:

Obvious to Chris Matthews, anyway.

Here’s the blimp-headed spittle-sprayer and his guests, babbling the usual nonsense about how you’re not supposed to criticize the president because he’s not a Republican:

“They refer to him as ‘Obama.’ They don’t say the ‘the president.’ They don’t say ‘the law.’ They don’t even speak the language we normally speak in civilized political debate.”

That’s the sort of incisive, clear-headed political commentary that has turned the cable news audience into big fans of The Five.

Should we start calling President Obama “the O-word”? I’d be okay with that, I guess.
