Joe Scarborough, apparently serious about 2016 run, gives speech in South Carolina
The Daily Caller ^ | February 26, 2014 | Alex Pappas

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough continues to indicate that he is taking the prospect of running for president in 2016 seriously by giving speeches in more early primary states.

Just last week, Scarborough made the trek from New York City to Greenville, South Carolina to speak at the South Carolina Automotive Council’s yearly summit.

A schedule for the event indicates that Scarborough addressed attendees during a morning speech at the Hyatt Hotel in Greenville on Feb. 20.

Scarborough’s visit to South Carolina, the location of the “First in the South” primary, follows The Daily Caller’s report earlier this month that it’s widely believed at MSNBC — including among network brass — that Scarborough is actively mulling a presidential bid....

I’m not sure which is a bigger joke. The Morning Schmo candidacy or the Peter King candidacy.

Which party? As a Republican, he might even be worse than our last nominee.

Maybe he could team up with Ed Schultz . . .

I decided to confirm that she was born in the U.S., and then found she was 46. She looks 56! Dang.

Crazy Joe is going to try a Ross Perot to get a RAT in the Whitehouse again.
Look for him to recycle old Perot speeches.

When you associate with so many schizoid liberals on a regular basis, its no surprise that you begin to suffer delusions and believe fantasies.

Joe is getting his marching orders.

Hey Joe, you like that cushy, high paying job on Morning Joe? You don’t want the real story of what happened to Lori to come out, do you?

Alright, go screw up the Republican primaries and nominating process. Just do what we say, we’ll handle the rest. Be sure to attack any honest conservatives.

How can he be ‘campaigning’ while still ‘on the air’.

Seem to remember that Fred Thompson had to wait until L&O had run out the NEW shows before he could even stump.
And he was just an actor, in a role that would have made him LIB except they already had the Lib angle covered
Scarborough - no matter how small an audience he may have - is on daily in a talk show capacity at least giving him the ‘bully pulpit’ for a few hours a week

That’s why Huckabee won’t run, he’s making too much money on TV. IIRC, Newt and Santorum were let go when it looked like they were running.

Joe is being told by someone he can win. Joe is being backed by big elite. That is the only reason he would put this crap.

For this, I’m getting the popcorn. The guy is an arrogant jerk who looks like the freaky kid from Deliverance. Plus, I have it on good authority, he’s wearing a wig.

If Joe Scarborough wants to be president, he should join the Democratic party and run against Hillary.

In 2008, Hillary was the ‘’inevitable’’ candidate of the Democrats. However, what turned out to be inevitable was that most of her fellow Democrats inevitably realized they didn’t like her very much, and so they chose an alternative.

The same thing is likely to happen in 2016. Whoever has the courage to run against Hillary — including beginning to campaign even now in Iowa, New Hampshire, etc. — has an excellent chance of winning the Democratic presidential nomination.

But who has the courage? So far, no one but Joe Biden, who’s made himself as dislikable as Hillary.

At present, Hillary rules the Democratic party through fear; however, it’s inevitable that the media will begin to write about her reign of terror — at which point Democrats will again realize they don’t like her very much, and the Hollywood/Wall Street bigwigs will again find another candidate to beat her for the nomination. Who it will be is the biggest question to ponder as 2016 approaches.
