Posted on 11/12/2013 8:38:19 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
With his new book The Right Path to promote, there was Joe Scarborough acting as guest co-host on The View Tuesday morning. And the MSNBC host had plenty to say about the current state of his Republican Party, including the belief that the GOP is too obsessed with hating on President Barack Obama.
Scarborough began by laying out the premise of his book, in which he says the GOP needs a new Ronald Reagan-esque figure to lead the party into the future. He said the real problem is that weve been conducting ideological witch hunts in our party. If you dont agree with everybody on 100% of the issues, somehow youre out.
Much of the discussion surrounded New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, who many view as a possible frontrunner for the 2016 presidential nomination. The fact is, people that would judge Chris Christie because he hugged Barack Obama, first of all, theyre too obsessed on hating Barack Obama, Scarborough said. He recounted that, as much he disliked former President Bill Clinton, when the president came to his district after a hurricane, he didnt hesitate to hug him. So Chris Christie hugged Barack Obama, get over it! he said.
As for Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), Scarborough said he has the same problem Sarah Palin has. About twice as many people have an unfavorable opinion as a favorable opinion. we have to figure out how to flip that around.
Scarborough also surprised the hosts when he said he could see himself voting for a Democrat for president. I mean, if we keep going in this direction, you know, I would, he said. I havent had to actually try that theory out yet, and hopefully our party will turn things around.
Finally, Scarborough weighed in on the Affordable Care Act, saying, Im not going to endorse Obamacare right here. But, he added, If you dont like Obamacare, then guess what? Lets actually win elections and were only going to win elections if we come up to an alternative to Obamacare.
Watch video below, via ABC:
I'm too obsessed with not taking Scarborough seriously. It's a good obsession.
Are you going to (say) Scarborough’s fair?
Little Joey loves Obama. A real bootlicker.
No, Bammy is too obsessed with conducting his War on America.
Scarborough = enemy.
Well, another RINO comes out of the Closet.
Expect him to switch to the Dem Party should the RNC accidently somehow nominate an actual Conservative.
Also the guy is a dork.
“I hugged Clinton.”
“So it is ok for Christie to hug Obama.”
or in other words, “I am a closet Dem. So it is ok for Christie to be one too.”
Sounds like the guy gets a tinkle down his leg when he sees Obama (that and pungent, wet socks)
Embrace it. Why yes we are and for all the right reasons. He’s destroyed our country and quality of life and lied to us while committing treasonous acts. That’s the very short list..
Scarborough is an irrelevant douchebag that is in league with the devil.
The communists just stole the middle class taxpayers disposable income via Obamacare, and its time for a declaration of war against the CPUSA and anybody who is allied with them, including the parasites that vote for them and their fellow travelers in both parties.
People are literally going to avoid hospitalization to avoid getting hit with 6-15K bills on top of the 15K in premiums they already shell out between their employer contribution and whats deducted from their paychecks, I’m talking people who get insurance through their employer.
These DC insiders have no idea of the shitstorm on the horizon.
Eff the commies and smash the system that lets them run roughshod over American values
Anyone who isn’t prepared to go to DC to fight the the communists is a sworn enemy of the working taxpayer and must be destroyed.
That includes the GOP-e blue blood country clubbers and their greedy pulled back wives, and any other sorry son of a bitch who thinks campaign commercials are going to beat those who intend to go to DC not to work with the communists and reform the system, but to destroy the communists and smash the system.
IN THE U. S. A.
The first of a series on the Communist conspiracy and its influence in this country as a whole, on religion, on education, on labor and on our government
^^No Communist, no matter how many votes he should secure in a national election, could, even if he would, become President of the present government. When a Communist heads the govern- ment of the United States and that day will come just as surely as the sun rises the government will not he a capitalist government hut a Soviet government, and hehind this government will stand the Red army to enforce the dictatorship of the proletariat,
Sworn statement of WILLIAM Z. FOSTER
Head of the Communist Party in the United States
If you ever find yourself in open debate with a Communist the facts here given can be used to destroy his arguments completely and expose him as he is for all to see.
Every citizen owes himself and his family the truth about Com- munism because the world today is faced with a single choice: To go Communist or not to go Communist. Here are the facts.
1 . What is Com-munism? A system by which one small group seeks to rule the world.
2. Has any nation ever gone Communist in a free election?
No. 3. Then how do the Communists try to get control?
Legally or illegally, any way they can. Communisms first big victory was through bloody revolution. Every one since has been by military conquest, or internal corruption, or the threat of these.
CONSPIRACY is the basic method of Communism in countries it is trying to capture.
IRON FORCE is the basic method of Communism in countries it has already captured.
1 2. What would happen to my insurance? The Communists would take it over.
34. Where are their headquarters in the United States, and who is in charge?
Headquarters are at 35 East Twelfth Street, New York City. Wil- liam Z. Foster, of 1040 Melton Avenue, New York City, has the title of Chairman of the Communist Party of the United States, but Foster is actually just a figurehead under control of foreign operatives unseen by and unknown to rank and file Communists.
55. What is the emblem of the Communist Party in the United States? The hammer and sickle.
36. What is the emblem of the Communist Party in the Soviet Union? The hammer and sickle.
57. What is the flag of the Communist Party in the United States? The red flag, the same as that of all Communist Parties of the world.
49. What kind of people become Communists?
The real center of power in Communism is within the professional classes.
Of course, a few poor people respond to the Communist claim that it is a working class movement.
But taken as a whole the Party depends for its strength on the sup- port it gets from teachers, preachers, actors, writers, union officials, doctors, lawyers, editors, businessmen, and even from millionaires.
This primary season has to be about drawing lines and targeting GOP-E that is willing to work with the communists and turning the primary into a referendum on communists and their fellow travelers in the GOP.
ANY GOP willing to work with communists needs to go.
Playing nice with the reds is no longer to be tolerated.
The whole RNC/GOP Washingtonian political class in DC needs to be decimated, this is revolution.
It's stupid people like you Joe, stupid people that the totalitarian left uses that should be ashamed.
Joey makes his $90k a week saying stupid crap and being a paid whore. He has no convictions or moral conscience which makes it easy for his mouth to move on behalf of his pimps.
Obsession? No, it’s a duty to mankind and reason to stand up to a lawless, lying, evil POS.
I am simply upset that we gave a president who hates producers and hates this country....period.
I should love this commie,queer that’s transvesting my country?
Joe is breaking Reagan’s 11th commandment. Just sayin’
Hating on a man who is intentionally destroying my country? Absolutely, and not ashamed of it one bit. BTW, I am repulsed by you too, Joe. Bob
Obama’s policies have greatly hurt people and been destructive for our nation. It is personal only in that he is doing these things purposefully. If he wasn’t he would have changed course two years ago as the economy remained tepid, the congress swung to the opposition party and the country was against his health care plan.
Instead he accelerated on several fronts, destroying our military, spying on Americans, using government force against his opponents and filling the pockets of his political allies. This is nothing short of a tragedy and one we may not be able recover. For that, yes, we hate Obama and what he is doing. If he was still a no-name backbencher in the Illinois Senate we would be indifferent but he’s in a seat of power where the damage is overwhelmingly bad.
hate 0bama? nah...
not just 0bama.
everyone on the left
Useless, feckless, uberdork coward and suck up.
So what is Morning Schmoe Scartissue’s excuse for foreign leaders “hating Obama” over the NSA kerfuffle?
Just wondering, has Joe killed any interns lately..at least Bill Clinton didnt kill an intern, he just screwed them..Joe killed one
Why is Scabby’s opinion newsworthy?
We? Scarbro is disappointed the Communist Party hasn't been more successful?
Oh, that’s right, Vince wasn’t an intern, neither were all those other people:
Hating obama is righteous. If you don’t hate him, your brain has turned to mush. He has destroyed this country bottom up and top down. What is not to hate? It IS specifically obama, Joe. Not his skin color but his politics and his evil destructiveness and his desperation to turn us into a third world country because he wears a chip on his shoulder that could span the Mississippi.
Another confused loser who needs to register Democrat and get it over with.
And how did the Dems feel about Dubya?
It’s actually the fundamental transformation of our country that we hate.
(Joe) Scarborough Faries have spoken!
The current pResident even hired one such hater as his personal 2008 pop-agandist artiste.
Scarborough was on The Daily Show last night plugging his book. He probably agreed with him when Stewart asked, “So if the Republicans had only listened to you for the past 10 years then they’d be in charge?”
I get confused, wasnt this guy the host of Scarborough Country a few years back? The guy who had Pat Buchanan on every night? And didnt he trash the liberal media for ignoring flyover,aka “Scarborough”, country on a nightly basis? The same guy who now pimps the editors of The New Yorker, Vanity Fair, the Nation, Time, and the Times every week? Something seems a bit off, cant be the same guy could it?
