MSNBC's Joe Scarborough Says Palin "Does Not Read Enough" to Attack ObamaCare - Video 8/18/09
Freedom's Lighthouse ^ | August 19, 2009 | BrianinMO

Posted on 08/19/2009 6:51:54 AM PDT by Federalist Patriot

Here is video of MSNBC's Joe Scarborough attacking Sarah Palin as "not capable" of taking apart the Democrats' Health Care Bill because "she does not read enough."

He also said that Republicans all over the country "behind closed doors" say that Sarah Palin "doesn't know what she's talking about." He was specifically complaining about Palin's past attacks on ObamaCare as containing "death panels," even though other Republicans like Sen. Charles Grassley have made similar arguments.

Scarborough seems to think he has to do things like this to keep favor with the radicals at NBC and MSNBC, who absolutely despise Sarah Palin. I'm sure there are some Republicans who feel that way about Palin, but I think there are many more who do not.

Scarborough also said he does not think Palin would do well in Iowa if she decideds to run for the GOP Nomination. . . . . (Watch Video)

How’s it feel Joe to know that if you get a little too conservative they will exit you out of the building like Robert De Niro did to the guy in Casino that had his socks on the blackjack table?

Joe, I can’t wait until they boot your ass off of WABC in the morning. You absolutely suck.

Joe is a whore with no gonads, spine, pride or integrity.

For his 30 pieces of silver may he roast in Hell in agony for eternity and not be able to wash his bum or privates until they itch real bad.

So there.

What happened to Scarborough? Years ago I used to think he was a decent Republican. Was it me, or did he change a whole lot?

He maybe correct but he is only speculating. The reality is there will be several that most likely won’t do well in Iowa, New Hampshire or other early states. Palins largest problem if she does decide to run is her home base being in AK. That may require a relocation to some place in the lower 48 early next year.

Joe is an absolute idiot. What the hell has happened to him since the 2000 election? He was awesome then.

I still can not believe how many gullible, moronic 'conservatives' use the Couric interview as their measuring stick for Sarah.

Joe Scarborough doesn’t even pretend to resist. He hungrily bends over and takes the left’s agenda full on and screams halleluiah.

Although it *may* have been a stunt, Joe spent the entire morning attacking everyone and every position to the right of The 0ne and, when a colleague teased him about his POS book he got in a huff and walked off not to return. What makes me think it was a legit walkoff is that they didn’t tease him about it after. It wasn’t mentioned again.

Dish is out, can’t take it, etc. etc.

BTW: How are those book sales coming, Joe? Lots and lots of real conservatives just snapping them up I bet.... just puttin’ Levin and Coulter and Malkin and Morris to shame. /s

Actually, I think it was Pew Reasearch Center's last numbers showed Palin ahead of all others (Romney, Jindal, Pawlenty, etc.), and by nearly 2-1 over her closest challenger in Iowa.

I am thinking exactly the same thoughts myself about this gomer. I have not watched anything by him in about 3 years but I do remember more of a conservative.

Social media marketing is the biggest trend right now in for promotion. My only worry is that by 2012, the trend will have leveled off, and the impact will not be as great. Nevertheless, SMM is here to stay.

Isn't it funny how Sarah is beating Obama at his own 'take the net' strategy, especially FB- whose founder handled O's online campaign strategy?

Joe Scarborough is as useless as Peggy Noonan if that is even possible.

How tragic that the lunatics at NBC/MSNBC keep ratcheting up their rhetoric, only to be reminded that NOBODY LISTENS TO THEM.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA(breath)HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Hey Joe, maybe someday you will get the guts to criticize Obama without have to mention “George W. Bush” first! Did MSNBC put that in your contract???

I read Sarah’s “Death Panel” response to BO’s mocking “town hall” show. She had it footnoted and very detailed.

Joe obviously didn’t read it—proving HE doesn’t read much.

I can tell you: a lot of these “news” people sit down and look at what another person has written...and have done very little research themselves.

Sometimes I think “news” people use “wikipedia” as an authority on a subject and end their “investigation” with that one source.

Early numbers...... LOL

Who was ahead and won Iowa in 2008? Remember? Try the name Huckabee by almost 3 to 1 over McCain.

I used to think the same thing. Then I started watching his show (really was excited since the F & F twits annoy the fire out of me). But...alas, he’s a *moderate* not a conservative.

Joe works in a bad neighborhood so he's always making excuses for the punks presuming they'll beat down on him last.

He is as they used to say " a good German"

She read the bill. That’s more reading than most Senators and Congresspeople have done lately.

Ok, either she doesn’t read enough or she read too much of Obama care and ratted them out. Which is it? Don’t you just love fried rat smell in the mornings!

Forget Iowa for a second...I am not asking this with any hidden editorial opinion...I just want to hear folks’ thoughts.

Can Sarah Palin, given the fact that the electorate is as divided as it is now, win the presidency in 2012? If so, how? If not, then who can beat Obama?

"Joe obviously didn’t read it—proving HE doesn’t read much."

Joe is also a former U.S. Congressman. We all know by now that they don't read much either.
