Matthews Sneers: Fiscal Conservatism Is Like Being 'the Most Segregationist Guy in the South'
On New Years Eve, Chris Matthews got off one last sneering, hateful shot against conservatives. In a special 2012 retrospective, the Hardball anchor compared fiscal conservatism to segregation. After guest Howard Fineman insisted that Mitt Romney's aversion to tax increases during the primary doomed him, Matthews snorted, "It's today's politics! It's like, they used to say you have to be the most segregationist guy in the south."
