Doug Wead w/Chris Matthews on MSNBC 1-10-12

Absolutely best Doug Wead performance yet!



One gem after another ...

My faves:

[Why is coming in second for Ron Paul ... a victory]

"Because it's Mitt Romney's home state."

"Thank God for Al Gore and the internet...people can look up the facts."

"This is no longer a country of the pundits, by the pundits, and for the pundits."

"He's incorruptible."

"Now your car mechanic can tell you about the Federal Reserve."

"Here's an old country doctor...who's incorruptible...you can't make up something like Ron Paul."

And a whole bunch more. Wead is a god.

We have a pitbull with the cheshire cat smile ... so grateful to have a seasoned pro like Doug Wead in our corner ... nothing but good will come from his services.

Great work Doug!

It seems that speaking to the media hounds without permitting an interruption provides that "Presidential" aura that people speak about. It's what gives Romney his appeal. At the debates he is rarely interrupted by the hosts. It also seems that the television hosts are using their medium to behave like a radio host who hangs up on his guest and then proclaims his despise for the sentiments of his guest.

They have learned to disrespect their guests by interrupting them before they can answer. Chris Matthews asked Doug a great question. It just so happened that the answer was greater than anything one could interject, short of yelling "fire," so it sounded like Matthews was stuttering in the background as Doug told THE TRUTH!!!

It is a truly refreshing experience to hear the truth. Yes, it's bad news. The future is bleak and frightening when our people are being robbed and nobody talks about it. To hear someone passionately deliver the "bad news" is a wonderful thing! It means the whole world hasn't gone crazy! There IS hope!

When Romney talks over others he is just being arrogant. When Doug proclaims our case against corruption and does not allow the truth to be silenced it is courageous, and it gives us troops another dose of courage for the fight.

Thank you Doug!

Doug Wead

has always given a stellar after stellar interviews. He needs a montage of some sort after Ron Paul gets elected.


The job I would not want

having to clean the chair Matthews was sitting on after this interview. LMAO

Wead did a great job as usual.

Matthews is just another political hack for the Democratic party and would support Beelzebub if he was on the Democratic ticket. Of course there are just as many Republican hacks that would do the same.

It is hard to imagine a more stupid or more dangerous way of making decisions than by putting those decisions in the hands of people that pay no price for being wrong.

The laughing does several

The laughing does several things.

It throws them off and makes them unsteady, much in the same way that they interrupt all the time with "but, but, but sir, but sir, sir are you saying..." kind of stuff.

It also adds a positive air right from the start. When you see someone else who looks happy and is laughing, you feel the same.

And it looks much worse to attack a friendly, smiling, laughing, jovial person than one who looks sour or defensive.

It's a good tactic, and it seems to work well for him.

Resist the temptation to feed the trolls.

Un-like Romney's guy

You are so correct when you said "And it looks much worse to attack a friendly, smiling, laughing, jovial person than one who looks sour or defensive."

That guy who was on the news several places including the Judge is the complete opposite of Doug Wead. If Doug Wead represented Romney I might actually listen to what he had to say. But that guy he has now is so negative and pains me to listen.

What can I say..

I love me some Wead!! This might be the best Wead i've ever seen.

We need another hit of Wead!

We need another hit of Wead!

Smmmoke'nnnn !!

... and none up the skirt. ;-)

That was fun. Pass it around.

Chris Matthews got Wead

Chris Matthews got Wead whacked!

Wead - a true believer?

Wead rocked it again, as he has all his interviews.

In previous threads I've seen people very reasonably remind us that Wead is a cynical hired gun, not really one of us and not to be too much trusted.
He worked for Bush, etc...

I found it a very convincing point.

But now I'm starting to think Wead's become a true believer.

I think he's like Julia Roberts in Pretty woman - a whore who's unexpectedly found true love. Freedom, like love, has that power of redemption.

But if not, he does a great job of faking it, and that's fine too ;-)

Getting Doug Wead and Jesse Benton in the media

is proving to be great. More, more, more! Both are able to punch back, and, in Doug Wead's case, laugh at the stupid questions before he smacks them down. We love "76"! 76 Trumbones led the parade! Matthews didn't see that one coming.

Me too!

How old was George Washington when he was President? Anyone know?

67 or 68

It depends on if you're using A.D. or C.E. When he was born March 21 was New Year's Day. {That is why Aries is listed first) When the calender was changed and made January 1st New Years his birth year was switched from 1731 to 1732.

That was actually the longest

That was actually the longest I've ever heard Matthews let someone talk without cutting in. Doug Wead is awesome!

It really seemed to me like...

...Chris was ignorant of what RP was really for.

I mean, some of his questions seemed like he was not 100% sure of the answer, so he was asking, sincerely, to know about Ron Paul's views.

Which if true, he doesn't know RP well, and he's truly ignored him all these years, like he's a sideshow, and has no chance to win, so why follow him.

Maybe some of these reporters really believe the lies they are told to parrot??

Doug Wead is just the best public speaker for Dr. Paul

And Rand Paul comes in a not-so-close second.

Doug Wead, though, is incredible. Always smiling, but always aiming and hitting the target with pinpoint accuracy.

Interesting how Chris Matthews was about five times less dismissive when talking about Dr. Paul than before.

Still, it seems like every single time any commentator talks about Dr. Paul, there is an obligatory final signoff question about a 3rd party bid. Amazing.

Yeah, a Cheap Shot

..at the close that Chris just had to sneak in...
He knew that Doug would humiliate him if he tried it earlier in the interview.
..Still a good interview.

"Beyond the blackened skyline, beyond the smoky rain, dreams never turned to ashes up until.........
...Everything CHANGED !!

Hey, Chris...

Shut up and let the man speak! Whenever Matthews fails to trip up his guest, he starts going, "Okay, okay" to cut him off so he can try again with a different question.

Hannity and O'Reilly do the

Hannity and O'Reilly do the same thing. Sounds like they all went to the talking heads school.

Why does Doug Wead laugh so much?

Because these MSM nitwits are so pathetic what else can you do.

Confidence !!

..That's why..and it speaks volumes!
Confidence, my friends, we are "on the cusp".

In the meantime; pundits speak of "potential harm" to
"Mittens" via BAIN CAPITAL...We are winning!

Can someone post a low res I-Phone friendly version, pl!!

I, and many other RonPaulers, are on the road. Can't wait to watch this!


Doug Wead against Bill O'Reilly.

---Lily Tomlin


Dead Wead on the significance of the number 76. This is great!

You must be joking

End of the interview, Matthews says the 3rd party run is an obvious road to the white house, so why would the campaign pass it up???????

Now they are trying to get RP to drop off the Republican ticket and go 3rd party. The schizophrenic MSM is really losing control of themselves.

Go easy on Chris M.

He's still recovering from his nasty breakup with Barack O'Bomb'a...he took it hard when he realized O'Bomb'a had lied to him was cheating on him.
