Chris Matthews Likens Romney to 'Indian' or 'Third World' Computer Techs, Says GOP Is 'Outsourcing' Election 'To a Mormon


"What a strange slew of religious prejudice at work!"

Addressing a poll that revealed a number of Americans in the primary states of Alabama and Mississippi believe President Obama to be a Muslim, MSNBC's Chris Matthews took the findings as an opportunity to disparage Mitt Romney. For Matthews, Romney is like an Indian (“or somewhere in the Third World”) computer scientist fixing your computer: “you don’t care who is fixing it, just fix the damn computer!”

When asked by host Ed Schultz whether he thought the region was "going to be rough terrain" for Romney, Matthews argued that Americans are "willing to outsource it [the election] to a Mormon.”

He added:

It seems to me if they can win– it’s almost like calling up India or somewhere in the third world to get your computer fixed, you don’t care whose fixing it, just fix the damn computer. They want to get rid of Obama, so they’re willing to vote for a guy they don’t like and probably wouldn’t trust his religion.

He also made a reference to the "three cultists" -- who, for Matthews, are those running -- two Catholics and a Mormon.
