One has to hand it to Chris Matthews, the mad cap MSNBC host, that when he starts to chew the carpet, he munches it with a will. Matthews has posited the perfect conspiracy theory to explain the current economic malaise.
“You know, a great question, Charles, that wasn’t on my list to ask but I’m going to ask you because you seem like a sophisticated guy of many parts. You think business can sit on those billions and trillions of dollars for two more years after they screw Obama this time? Are they going to keep sitting on their money so they don’t invest and help the economy for two long years to get Mr. Excitement Mitt Romney elected president? Will they do that to the country?”
Sure, it cannot be because businesses are afraid of what Obama tax and economic policy is going to do to their capability to make a profit. Surely a vast conspiracy is more reasonable explanation.
