Matthews' Tough Question: What Has The GOP Done For The U.S. In 20 Years?

Chris Matthews repeatedly asked top Republican strategist Todd Harris what his party has done for the country for the past 20 years. Harris was tongue-tied. Watch:

Matthews: I've asked you to name one thing [the Republican party] has done for this country in the last 15-20 years...and you're having a hard time giving me an answer.

Harris: I'm not having a hard time giving you an answer. When I decide to write a book about the history of the last 20 years of the Republican party, I'll be happy to talk to you about that. My job is to win elections in 2010, and I'm going to keep my eye on the ball.

Matthews: YouTube is watching. You're the Republican consultant. One of the best in the country. Tell me what the Republican party has done for this country in the last 10 to 20 years.

Harris: [Silence]

Matthews: "Thank you. ...We'll have you back with the answer."

Did Matthews ask a tough question? Wasn't it a question that a top Republican strategist should have been able to answer? Actually, Harris answered the question with his silence.
