Chris Matthews Decries Robot Invasion

Calls Romney supporters androids, non-human

CHRIS MATTHEWS: Who are these featureless young people waving those placards? I mean, are they androids? Who are these people that seem thrilled? Look at them. They all go up in unison. They all put their placards up exactly the same way. They are all exactly in unison. Is this North Korea? Who are these people? There's this kid in the white shirt and glasses. They all look like the perfect little kids in school with perfect attendance. Who are these androids?

CHUCK TODD: Well, actually I think it's a pretty good description. These are the perfect kids. I think that's what you get at a rally sometimes. They get behind them. You're right. You point out another problem that I have found when I go to Romney events, which is you don't meet people that will crawl across broken glass to vote for mitt Romney. They're settling, there is no question, it's like the song that's in my head, "If you can't be with the one you love, honey, love the one you're with." I think that's what a lot of republicans have to come to grips with. But again, you got to give Romney his due. He did have a big Super Tuesday night. He won in a bunch of time zones. He won Ohio. Yes, by the skin of his teeth but he won it. And he won a majority of the delegates.

MATTHEWS: He still looks like one of the figures at the Hall the Presidents, one of those statues, you know, motorized. They stand up and wave. There he is with his wife. She looks normal. They turn around and wave to a crowd of androids who all look the same. They all put their placards up at the same time. He turns around and smiles as if he is connecting with them and he is clearly not a human being connecting with other human beings. Look at this. Is this real?
