Every now and again, even liberal journalists will let a little truth slip out of their mouths. Such is the case of MSNBC’s Chris Matthews, the man who has professed on multiple occasions to have a thrill go up his leg over President Obama.
During a segment on Hardball last night, Matthews and former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani were discussing immigration reform.
The MSNBC host claimed neither party actually wants immigration reform, but then admitted that Democrats just want illegals ‘for the votes.’
Via the Free Beacon:
On Tuesday night’s Hardball, Matthews and former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani discussed why immigration reform hasn’t been addressed, and Matthews asked Giuliani if he would trust either party to enforce immigration laws.
“Neither party has done it,” Giuliani said.
“I know neither of them believe in it,” Matthews said. “They want cheap labor. And Democrats want votes. Let’s face it.”
You heard that right – Democrats just want their votes.
Of course, this is not news to those astute observers of the far left. Just prior to Obama’s executive amnesty plan, Democrat Rep. Luis Gutiérrez (D-IL) confessed that such action would bring in 4-5 million new party voters.
The Political Insider reported on Gutiérrez comments:
Gutiérrez, appearing on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, railed against portions of his own party standing in the way of human rights at the border. He urged his colleagues in the Senate not to play politics on this matter.
Then he provided this little dangling carrot.
Amnesty after all, can be a good thing for the Democrat party:
“Let me just say in about an hour, I’m going over to the White House. I’ll be meeting with Jeh Johnson and the Chief Legal Counsel to the President of the United States. We’re going to sit down and we’re going to negotiate additional terms and avenues the President can use and prosecutorial discretion, and I think we can get three or four or maybe even five million people.”
It really is common knowledge – the fact that hard-left ‘journalist’ Chris Matthews has admitted it is what makes it shocking.
Comment: Are Democrats only interested in illegal immigrants for their votes?
