Matthews: It’s Like Germany Won WWII Because They Have High-Speed Rail
Bizarre Chris Matthews: It's Like Germany Won World War II Because They Have High Speed Rail? (Newsbusters)
An unhinged Chris Matthews on Thursday launched into a bewildering rant, lamenting the scandals swirling around the President and suggesting that Germany may have actually won World War II because the country has high speed rail. The Hardball anchor fumed, "You look at Germany, where I just was, and see state-of-the-art bridges and super modern rail system." Mentioning Germany's subway system, Matthews insisted, "You wonder, who won that anyway? Looks like they did."
The MSNBC anchor doesn't appear to listen to himself speak. He asserted, "We've got a 7.5 percent unemployment rate right now. And let's be realistic, it's not going to two down a lot more over the next three years." Seconds later, Matthews praised, "The French have trains that go 300 miles an hour-plus and you think you're sitting still. And we've got the buckboard called Amtrak." So, France is the solution? Their unemployment rate in March of 2013 was 11 percent. That's higher than 7.5 percent. France's under age 25 unemployment rate is 26.5 percent. (Also higher than 7.5 percent).
