Chris Matthews Grumbles Over Boring ‘Threesome Of Death’ Romney, Pawlenty And Huntsman

Chris Matthews lamented the “boring” Republican field with his political strategists and concluded that Republicans are desperate for someone new whenever they look at Mitt Romney. Yet Romney wasn’t the only Republican in Matthews’ crosshairs, as the other two serious candidates Tim Pawlenty and Jon Huntsman were all lumped together and affectionately described by Matthews as the “threesome of death.”

Matthews went after Romney for being insincere all of the time. During an interview, Romney declared President Obama to be a failure who deserves an “F” as a grade for his job thus far. Matthews analyzed Romney’s response and determined that Romney gave that response with as little passion as someone who is “answering a crossword puzzle.” Looking around at other rumored candidates who are potentially thinking about entering the race, Matthews declared Texas Governor Rick Perry was “vacant intellectually” and Matthews admitted “I always disliked this guy . . . I don’t take him seriously as a person.”

In the end, Matthews wondered “is there any hope for humanity in my business” as he was still optimistic there could be a wild west shootout for the Republican nomination. Yet with Congresswoman Michele Bachmann close to making her candidacy official, Matthews is aware his despair might be premature. And in a one-on-one match between Bachmann and Romney, Matthews was unafraid to go out on a limb and predict that Bachmann wins, because “she’s real” and he’s not.
