Chris Matthews, Now and Then

Chris Matthews reacting Bush's speech (as transcribed by the right-wing Media Research Center):

The idea that we have some brand new neo-conservative ideology of freedom that's going to bring peace over in that part of the world is not true, and he's still selling it, and that's the tragedy of the last eight years.

The very same Chris Matthews, reacting toa Saddam Hussein statue being pulled down in Baghdad (4/9/03):

We're all neo-cons now.
