Matthews On GOP Campaign: "Not What The Founding Fathers Had In Mind"




"My love is for democracy," Chris Matthews said on MSNBC this afternoon. "My love is for a maybe a romantic notion of a fair fight. The idea that two, or three, or five, or seven people go in a ring and you get a good look at all of them, they make their best case, and you judge among them."

"What you have seen out here is nothing like democracy. It's not about equality, it's about financial equity. It's not about democracy, it's about dollars. This is not what people fought for in all our wars," an emotional Matthews said.

Chris Matthews also likened the way the GOP campaign has played out to the bombing of Dresden.

"This is not what the Founding Fathers had in mind. This is Dresden. This is a bombing campaign without a signature attached to it, and that's what's been going out here for weeks," he said.
