Wilson Shows Wexler the Door

This is one of the better smack downs I have seen in a while. HT: Ken.

Wilson Waxes Wexler/Matthews Double-Team | NewsBusters.org
On this afternoon's Hardball, the feisty, brilliant [bio: high honors Air Force Academy grad, Rhodes Scholar] GOP representative from New Mexico took on the duo of the combative congressman from Florida and host Chris Matthews, and walked away a winner. The subject was Obama's Berlin speech, and by extension his presidential qualifications.

You'll find excerpts below, but they don't do begin to do justice to Wilson's brio and the coolness under verbal fire she displayed. That's why I'd strongly encourage readers to view the video. Wilson kicked off her tour de force in commenting on a clip of Obama in his Berlin speech proclaiming that various walls, including one between American and Europe, "cannot stand" and must be torn down.

Brilliant!! If only others had the intelligence, acumen and tenacity to challenge the Obama mystique as well as Rep Wilson did against both Rep Wexler and Mr. Matthews. Both were dumbfounded and fumbling.
