Matthews to GOP: What Is this Calling People with Opposing Ideas Stupid?

‘I’m not saying anybody’s a no-brainer, I’m not calling anybody stupid’

Matthews to GOP: What Is this Calling People with Opposing Ideas Stupid? (NewsBusters)

Earlier today in a press conference, Speaker of the House John Boehner made a quip about President Obama's veto threat of a bill to authorize the Keystone XL oil pipeline which indirectly referenced Jonathan Gruber's infamous "stupidity of the American voter" line regarding the selling of ObamaCare.

Hardball host Chris Matthews played the clip on his November 18 program, but seemed completely oblivious as to its meaning, instead using the remark as an opportunity to demand Keystone supporter Sen. John Hoeven (R-N.D.) denounce Boehner's supposed ad hominem attack on environmentalists who oppose building the pipeline.
