On Thursday evening, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews will host President Barack Obama for an interview. As Eddie noted Tuesday morning, the interview will cover a “variety of topics,” including the botched rollout of healthcare.gov.
Given the likely tingles of anticipation he’s experiencing today, Matthews previewed the presidential interview in a segment with fellow MSNBCer Andrea Mitchell.
“I’ll be talking about executive accountability and the strange way of this roll out, as it has occurred,” Matthews told MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell. “I think I would compare it, Andrea, to a brilliant writer, perhaps, with a great theme who turns in a paper with a lot of misspelling or bad handwriting.”
“With all the great strengths potentially of a national health care system along these lines, the way it was rolled out has hurt it,” he continued. “It’s given the other side a lot of talking points to use against the president generally in terms of his competence.”
