Howard Fineman Talks 2012 Presidential Race On ‘The Chris Matthews Show’ (VIDEO)

HuffPost TV

Posted: March 6, 2011 11:21 AM

The Huffington Post’s Senior Political Editor Howard Fineman appeared on “The Chris Matthews Show” on Sunday, along with the BBC’s Katty Kay, NBC News’ Norah O’Donnell and Time Magazine’s Richard Stengel, to discuss America’s declining position in the world, and what it means for President Obama in 2012.

“The trick is to be honest and inspirational at the same time,” Howard said.

“50-year-old factory worker, 50-year-old man or woman in Western Pennsylvanian, Indiana, the states that are going to decide this next election…. Are they thinking ‘The president’s got this all figured out?'” Matthews asked.

“If you look a the statistics and the polling, and you talk to people in those places, as I do,” Howard replied, “They don’t think that. They’re highly skeptical. And I think they’re open to another message from somebody who, if he or she can find it, mixes honesty with inspiration. If you’re just going to tell people, ‘Look, here are the cold, hard facts,’ that’s not going to work.”

West Point Cadet To Chris Matthews: We Are Not The Enemy

First Posted: 12- 3-09 01:48 PM   |   Updated: 12- 3-09 02:47 PM

A West Point cadet has responded to MSNBC host Chris Matthews’s description of the military academy as “enemy camp” for President Obama.

“I watched the cadets, they were young kids, men and women who were committed to serving their country professionally, it must be said, as officers. And I didn’t see much excitement. But among the older people there, I saw, if not resentment, skepticism,” Matthews said Tuesday night. “I didn’t see a lot of warmth in that crowd out there the president chose to address tonight. And I thought it was interesting. He went to maybe the enemy camp tonight to make his case.”

Matthews suggested later in the broadcast that he had used the wrong words, and he gave a full apology the next day.

Ben Salvito, a member of the class of 2010, wrote a response on The New Ledger Web site Wednesday saying that the cadets’ lack of excitement had nothing to do with their opinions:

To applaud or to boo at the announcements made last night would have both been equally inappropriate for the Corps of Cadets. In fact, the stoic reaction by all ought to leave the world confident in the Corps’ and the military’s ability to be apolitical and execute the policies of the President and Congress with fervor and duty. […]
Cadets are trained in acceptance of orders, and the Commander-in-Chief was effectively issuing an order to all who were present. No cadet will be spared from the effects of President Obama’s remarks — his message has been received and internalized by all who were present in Eisenhower Hall. I am humbled by the President’s decision to announce his new strategy at my school and completely reject the notion of any who suggest that West Point is in any way “the enemy camp.” The enemy camps are in Helmand province, where soldiers are currently engaged in the President’s mission.

Obama inauguration to air in theaters

MSNBC pact puts coverage in 27 U.S. locations

NEW YORK — President-elect Barack Obama is on his way to the big screen, thanks to a deal between MSNBC and Screenvision that will put the news channel’s inaugural coverage in 27 theaters around the country.

Free tickets are being handed out via MSNBC.com to see the inauguration and parade from 11 a.m.-3:30 p.m. ET at the 27 theaters run by 11 exhibitor partners in 21 markets. Midday Tuesday isn’t necessarily a big movie time, so it helps to fill the theater — and boost popcorn and soda sales — at a time when it’s not usually busy.

That means that Keith Olbermann, Rachel Maddow, Chris Matthews and other MSNBC and NBC personalities will play the big movie screen in addition to the usual MSNBC cable and satellite stream. MSNBC won’t be in high-definition until the second quarter, but both the channel and Screenvision say the quality will still be high.
