Chris Matthews just can't believe Obama's Opponents Aren't Racists

Chris Matthews was discussing this poll that found opposition to President Obama wasn't racially based with David Corn and he was having a really hard time believing Obama's opponents aren't racially motivated.

From the 3:10 mark in the video:
MATTHEWS: I‘m not sure. David Corn, I want to ask you this question: Why is it that all the liberals we know, every liberal we know was thrilled that this country was capable of electing an African American president? And you did not hear that thrill exciting the body or the soul of conservatives. They were not thrilled by the idea that this country was capable getting beyond its race past—it‘s racial past, not racist, but racial past.

Why is it that liberals liked that idea and conservatives didn‘t like were not thrilled by it? They just didn‘t have the same reaction.

You would have to be incredibly stupid to say something this far out there and actually believe it. Race is the only thing they have because they know they won't win on philosophy with a majority of Americans. The truth is, race isn't a winner either, and it's starting to get old. Matthews is an idiot.
