[For more, see video cross-posted at NewsBusters.] Panic mode? Chris Matthews on Thursday morning conceded that Republicans would win the Senate in November. On Wednesday night's Hardball, the host lashed out at voters. Speaking of a House special election won by the Republicans on Tuesday, he fumed, "Well, this election in Florida yesterday was about one word: 'No.' Because no worked, it will be worked again from now until November. By all means, no. That's the Republican message this year." Grappling with the reason why it is so "hard" for Democrats to fight in this midterm election, Matthews lectured, "Well, for one thing, Democrats generally can see the complexity of our times." He added, "They don't think they have all the answers. They'd like to see some deal making between the parties and across the aisles."
