President Obama isn’t talking to the DC media. But most heartbroken of all is Chris Matthews. O even turned him down for an interview. Matthews can now only leave messages on O’s voicemail: “Why won’t you call sweetheart? Don’t you like me anymore? Are you embarrassed that 44 out of 50 states saw unemployment rise in July?
