Matthews: Obama Has Done Everything Anybody Ever Asked Blacks To Do

On MSNBC's Hardball today, host Chris Matthews went into a rant defending President Obama as one of the most middle-class people we've had as president. Matthews also said he has a "perfect record" and is "clean as a whistle."

"I think -- you know, I think President Obama is one of the most middle-class people we've had as president, one of the most regular," Matthews said on his nightly MSNBC program today.

"He's a self-made man," New York Magazine's John Heilemann chimed in.

"He's done everything -- I said it today, without being a big lib about it, he's done everything anybody has ever asked African-Americans to do in this country. Perfect family, perfect record, clean as a whistle. All he has done is work for people that need help. He's never grabbed the money," Matthews also said.
