Seconds later, Matthews charged the Congress has “really become an undemocratic system with the way that Boehner’s had to play this with his right wing.” That led Carly Fiorina, a fellow panelist to snidely observe: “It’s all the Republican’s fault in your view, clearly.” A delighted Matthews agreed: “It is. You nailed it.”
