Matthews, on Meet the Press, said, “This president doesn’t have a chain of command—-a clear line of authority, and unique responsibility. Somehow, some way, this led SaintPat to extrapolate that:

Matthews seems to think that Obama should have a chain...a reference to him thinking we should go back to when black people were slaves to white people like him. It's a coded way of speaking but you can tell what his racist attitude really is because words mean something.

Let me get you some help, poor soul who can't understand a common, simple metaphor/image. This had zilch to do with anything remotely connected to "slavery."

Chain of command:

1. "A system whereby authority passes down from the top through a series of executive positions or military ranks in which each is accountable to the one directly superior."--The Free Dictionary

2. "The order in which authority and power in an organization is wielded and delegated from top management to every employee at every level of the organization. Instructions flow downward along the chain of command and accountability flows upward."--Business
