Chris Matthews: Un-constitutional scholar

Chris Matthews (MSNBC)

The United States Constitution, according to MSNBC host Chris Matthews, apparently precludes anyone from speaking when the president wants to speak.

“I don’t think [Romney] understands the Constitution of the United States," Matthews exclaimed to his guest.  "[Obama]'s the president of the United States. You don’t say, ‘You’ll get your chance.’”

Who in their right mind thinks... oh, wait. Nevermind.

Jason reported on Matthews' mistaken version of constitutional law here.

Meanwhile, Byron York at the Washington Examiner adds:

Now, it’s entirely possible for one to think Romney was rude to Obama during that moment in the debate. A president is of course entitled to some deference, and some people undoubtedly thought Romney was insufficiently deferential. Others thought Romney’s behavior was entirely acceptable. But just for the record, there is nothing in the Constitution barring one from saying “You’ll get your chance” to the President of the United States — no matter what his supporters on MSNBC say.
