Full version now added.

Joe Walsh must have said "Chris" a thousand times, and couldn't have been more obnoxious and condescending, "my friend." This video doesn't include some of his more infuriating moments at the start of the interview... if you can call it that.

    Too bad he didn't get "Turkey of the Year Award" from MSNBC. He deserved it and would get my vote!

  • You're banned Anomaly!! ; )

  • I'm skeered. Don't delete me too!

  • "Patriot76" -

    The last Republican to preside over a balanced budget was Dwight Eisenhower in the 1950s. I just wanted to add to your expertise on history before you rewrite the last good Republican that was in office (way, way back in the previous century).

    The last Dem presiding over a balanced budget: Bill Clinton.

    Go on, keep f#cking that chicken but I think it's worn out. I came baring gifts. Bush on the economy:

    His words, not mine. You have yourself a great partisan weekend!

  • Mr. Dak, great catch!!

    Omg, "has A education"... priceless.

    I've blacklisted the two trolls. My patience ran out. I love how after we
    let them run off at the mouth for an hour, they then accuse us of
    "censoring" them. Human talking points are not a good fit here, yet they
    seem to love our site. Very odd.

    Or, 'an' education?  Certainly.  Never questioned that.  Just the quality.  You've answered that.

  • Rep. Tea-bagging Joe Walsh  appear to have chemicals in his system, he was racing and was clearly hyped. This guy is a total embarrassment to Illinois! He exposed his disconnect with history and reality. Classic example of table-turning and fast-talking, talking loud and saying nothing.  He's trying to sell something he knows nothing about, can't explain it, becomes defensive and runs away from it when pressured.  Joe you're a mental light-weight way out of your league.  Have-a-seat  Joe!

  • They tried to flag my comments. They were too stupid to realize we moderate our own comments, even after we told them.

    What planet are you from? Why are you hung up on Olbermann? Look at my censored post again. The post that you censored has the article that Fox News is the most trusted name in news.  And also the ratings from June 2011. Basic cable has NOTHING to do with this. MSNBC is on my basic cable. I have always been able to see MSNBC. I am not drawing parallels from any show to Current TV. Look carefully again. Fox News (ALL TALK SHOWS) blow away the others by a large margin. Get Olbermann off of your brain. He is the most hate-filled, angry talk show host on the air. Him and Current TV will not last. 

    Your logic as to why Fox's ratings are higher than others makes no sense whatsoever. Try another angle. Fox does have credibility. Why else would they be rated as the most trusted. I know you wont believe me so Google me this Batwoman,  'fox most trusted news' and read the Politico article (BTW Politico is a liberal site) second hit down. 

    BTW did you check the most recent info on Olbermann's ratings? Google this 'olbermann ratings drop on current tv'. 

  • I deleted and blacklisted both of them. We don't need that bullshit.

    You have overstayed your welcome because you're a moron, not because of any posts. Comments with more than one link go to moderation, and I just don't give a shit about ok'ing your stupid comment. Go home and take your bud with you.

  • Nope. We have to approve any post w/ links. Sometimes it's simply a matter of not seeing them in our email notifications, or not finding the time. As for your so-called facts, that's highly debatable.

    And as I said, we don't do baiting here, and you're as repetitive as Patriot, who just got banned for baiting and failing to heed Paddy's warning. And just like Patriot, you failed to read and/or abide by our guidelines. This is your final warning. If you have nothing factual to add, then stop commenting or you, too, will be deleted.

    And if you even try to go for the tired old "First Amendment" protest, we're not the govt, so it doesn't apply. No, we are free to run our blog the way we like, and people like you add nothing of worth. If you are so anti-lib, stop hanging out here. We won't miss you.

  • Patriot76

    Liberals like Paddy don't deal in facts just twisting real facts and the truth and trying to make you look bad.  Saul Alinsky attacks.

  • You know what gets you banned here, Patriot? Ignoring admin warnings and breaking the guidelines which you are apparently too stupid to read or process. You're gone.

  • Tlister

    So you ARE censoring the posts that you do not like as I suspected. I had too many facts in my lengthy post so you chose to not show it so your readers can continue to stay in the dark about what this administration is doing. 

  • Anonymous

    Did we hurt your fee fees there Tlister? Funny how all the rah rah manly R's get all weepy when they're called out for their bullshit. You need to go see what bar Allen West is hanging out in so you can commiserate on all those mean liberal women.

    Oh, by the way, you're right, you're not welcome here if you're going to be all whiny and repetitive. You got an argument to make? Try using facts not links to lies on Fox. 

  • Are you really comparing Fox, which is carried on basic cable, in hotels, drs offices, etc, and Current, which isn't carried on basic cable, and so has limited access? Really? Do you also compare McDonald's to the local mom and pop burger joint?

    And drawing a parallel to a show that's been on for years to one that has been on for weeks is laughable. FYI: Keith has increased viewership on Current by 15x.

    More FYI: Even MSNBC wasn't on basic cable, so he was never able to match Fox's overall ratings, although he did great with key age groups.

    If you're going to try to prove Fox's superiority, start with their credibility. Oh wait. They have none.

    I posted a pretty lengthy post about 40 minutes ago but it said it was awaiting moderation. I think that means I have overstayed my welcome here.

    You mean, thank Clinton for the budget surplus he handed off?  The one you threw away?

  • Anonymous

    Hey Tlister, baby, honey, sweetie!!!! Howsabout if you're so sure that the R's will win in November '12, I respectfully suggest that you start holding your breath now and let go when your wet dream comes true. 

  • So what are the specific non-defense discretionary budget cuts that Matthews asked Rep. Walsh about anyway? 

  • Tlister

    I should know better than to post on a liberal blog. I am not welcome here. Enjoy the terrific job that Obama is doing. This hope and change is just spectacular in't it?

  • Tlister

    There will be a huge buyers remorse recall in November 2012. 

  • Tlister

    Yes, look at Harborguy (and we know you hate that "n" person in YOUR White House)

  • Patriot76

    Yes, because the Democrat party has done so much for People and this Nation... slavery, the KKK etc, etc.

  • Patriot76

    HarborGuy,

    You are nothing but traitors to the U.S.

    You make me sick!

  • Patriot76

    I guess "we Conservatives" have to give you libs history lessons and this didn't start just under Bush.. you can thank Clinton, Fannie and Freddie.

  • Did anyone here play the race card? Show me where. I missed that.

    And you're right, T, it didn't take the GOP any time to screw up this
    country. My bad.

    Btw, re: November 2010, again, you might try doing your homework. There are
    a few recalls underway as a result of that "shellacking". Buyer's remorse.
    Next.

  • Tlister

    Remember the GOP "shellacked" (Obama's description) the liberals in the Nov 2010 election with what the people demanded. That is a return to fiscal responsibility. They have had 7 months and you are already on them. Obama has had nearly 3 years and the liberals say it takes time. Make up your mind. Don't play the race card. Typical liberal response because you have NOTHING to defend Obama's record with. If Bush (or a Republican) were in office right now and the unemployment were at 9.2 (as it is now) would you say he/she needs more time?

  • Tlister, you need to remember that the decline of this economy didn't start
    in Jan. '09. Go do some reading so "we liberals" don't have to give you
    history lessons.

    Start with "Bush gets selected", then check your facts from 2001-8. He
    killed this country's middle class while snuggling up to his corporate
    buddies, he failed to include his wars in the budget, he cut taxes to the
    wealthy which dragging us into a financial ditch, and President Obama has
    had to try to dig us out of those 8 years of failure in under 3 years.

    By the way, you might also want to understand what "Add Jobs" means, because
    Obama has done that while Bush killed them.

    Facts are difficult things for you, apparently.

  • Tlister

    Yes I did watch the interview. Joe Walsh was somewhat annoying but not much different than Chris Matthews is every day with his guests. The point that stood out is the typical liberal response when they are challenged. That is to call the challenger childish. You liberals are unwilling to face the fact that Obama hasn't done crap for this economy. The press gives him a free pass on every misstep he makes (too numerous to mention).

    I saw that. It was disgusting.

    SO...Joe...

    You (GOBPers, RushThugs, CONservaTurds, T.HATEbaggers) campaigned last fall on,

    JOBS, JOBS, JOBS, JOBS...and JOBS.

    And you and your ilk haven't done shit about jobs. You changed the story line (as usual)...we know that the Party of Thug is THE worst with money...and we know you hate that "n" person in YOUR White House.

    ...you make me sick.

  • So you didn't watch the video, Tlister?

    Or maybe you think guests should be nasty, uninformed, and utterly rude. Got
    it.

  • LOL!!

  • Tlister

    Chris Matthews calls the interview childish because his idol (Obama) is being challenged. 

  •  I think he replaced uh and er with "Chris"

  • BetNot

    The American people do not care about about this balanced budget , the economic elite do.  By the way, Joe, he is OUR President, no matter what you say.  Maybe you should understand how democracy works,  remember who votes...

  • I'm unclear who he was talking to. Chris?

  • It's so amusing watching the Republicans dance around the questions of this STUPID BILL

  • It's so amusing watching the Republicans dance around the questions of this STUPID BILL

  • David G.

    I think Joe Walsh was on speed.  He's so ignorant and then you have Chris Matthews who's always on speed.  But today he sure painted Joe as a fool and perhaps a liar as well.  DG

    Chris made Rep Walsh look foolish! The man started stuttering, deflecting and placing blame on President Obama which is a fall back plan for all GOPstoppers when they get backed into a corner with facts!!......
