Chris Matthews concluded Hardball on Wednesday, July 31:
Let me finish tonight with this. They are political terrorists and like all terrorists, including those who use bombs, their number one goal – their only goal – is to blow things up. Cruz, Paul and Mike Lee are on a mission to destroy, shut down the American government, destroy ObamaCare, drive the country into default, destroy the U.S. credit rating. Terrorists with one purpose: To bring down, not just this administration but, let’s face it, the American government. Just watch. And the fact is, the likelihood out there, is this crew could be the one that crashes the Republican convention next time. And that, fortunately, could be the end of them. And that’s Hardball for now.
