Chris Matthews even admits Obama has had a terrible year

Chris Matthews, the MSNBC’s news anchor and political commentator who is likely best known for his diehard support of President Barack Obama in recent times, was brutally honest on Friday as he appeared on “Morning Joe,” according to the Huffington Post on Friday. Atypical of Matthews, he had a harsh message for the president.

Matthews was asked during the televised talk who he thought were the political losers of the past year – throughout 2013 – and he admitted that it was President Barack Obama.

Matthews said it has been none other than a “terrible year” for the president. In fact, when Joe Scarborough of “Morning Joe” inserted the comment that Obama’s second inauguration was just last January, Matthews sighed.

Matthews went on to say that it’s not just a bad year in terms of the Obamacare (Affordable Care Act) rollout, but – he asserted – there’s an erosion in interest. He said it feels like a very long presidency now – it feels like the seventh or eighth year of a presidency, not the fifth year. He profoundly claimed that there wasn’t that rejuvenation that typically comes with a re-election of a president. He said, “There was no sense of ‘wow.’ I think that’s hurt him a lot.”

When the likes of Chris Matthews start telling it like it is – things are not good for the president.
