MSNBC’s ‘Hardball’ host Chris Matthews has had a difficult time coming to terms with political realities. Few will forget he was so smitten hearing Barack Obama speak, that he admitted to being overwhelmed by a “thrill going up my leg.” Later, when he felt Obama wasn’t sufficiently liberal to suit his far-left ideals, he turned fickle on the Obama of his affections, haranguing him for a litany of infractions.
For a conservative to appear with such a radically liberal host — where this devout extremist calls the shots — takes spine. Yet that’s exactly what Republican Legislative District 30 Chairman, Timothy Schwartz did Monday evening. Schwartz is the man responsible for drafting the Resolution of Censure against Arizona Sen. John McCain that passed overwhelmingly by elected members of both the Maricopa County Republican Committee on Jan. 11, and this past Saturday at the Statutory Meeting of the State Committee of the Arizona Republican Party. To date, elected GOP Precinct Committeemen in Apache, Cochise, Gila, Maricopa, Mohave and Santa Cruz counties have passed similar Censure Resolutions against McCain.
Timothy Schwartz was not to be browbeaten by the likes of the brash over-speaker Matthews and his illogical arguments or David Corn, Washington Bureau Chief at ‘Mother Jones’ (MoJo) a left-wing political magazine published by the Foundation for National Progress —- connected to none other than George Soros‘ Open Society Foundations.
The duo thought they had an easy mark in their sights as the segment opened with a claim of, “How far to the right the Republican Party has gone.” Matthews repeatedly attempted to elicit comments from Schwartz on McCain’s foreign policy positions, but Schwartz stayed on topic and clearly articulated the points contained in the Censure Resolution he authored.
Chris Matthew’s program is intimidatingly titled ‘Hardball.’ But he and David Corn — tag-teaming liberals — were no match for the steady Timothy Schwartz.
