    From Friday's HARDBALL with Chris Matthews SHOW:
    ************************************************
    (start of video clip)
    BARACK OBAMA, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES: (INAUDIBLE) What do you have to say?
    UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I have to say, why do people hate you?
    (LAUGHTER)
    (CHEERING AND APPLAUSE)
    (CROSSTALK)
    UNIDENTIFIED MALE: They‘re supposed to love you. And God is love, man.
    OBAMA: That‘s what I‘m talking about.
    (CHEERING AND APPLAUSE)
    OBAMA: I did get elected president, so not everyone hates me.
    (LAUGHTER)
    (CHEERING AND APPLAUSE)
    OBAMA: Once one party wins, then the other party kind of gets—feels like it needs to poke you a little bit...
    (LAUGHTER)
    OBAMA: ... to keep you on your toes.
    And, so, you shouldn‘t take it too seriously. And, then, sometimes, as I said before, people just—I think they are worried about their own lives. A lot of people are losing their jobs right now. A lot of people are losing their health care, or they have lost their homes to foreclosure. And they‘re feeling frustrated.
    And when you‘re president of the United States, you know, one...
    UNIDENTIFIED MALE: (OFF-MIKE)
    OBAMA: You‘ve got to deal with all of that. That‘s exactly what.
    (END VIDEO CLIP)

    MATTHEWS: Well, I think, sometimes, this president gives a better case for the other side than the other side does for itself.
    And pretty impressive, that 9-year-old. He‘s going to remember that moment as long as he lives.
