Scarborough Tweet-Taunts Romney: 'A Real Conservative Would Be Winning Now'
News Busters ^ | 9-9-12 | Tim Graham

Posted on 09/09/2012 12:55:08 PM PDT by cdchik123

The Huffington Post is happy: "MSNBC's Joe Scarborough offered some harsh words for Mitt Romney via Twitter on Saturday night."

"Romney will lose if he doesn't dramatically change his strategy," he said. "Negative ads won't substitute for conservative ideas."

The 'Morning Joe' host continued: "The Romney campaign is not conservative. It is just as cynical and risk-averse as Team Obama. A real conservative would be winning now."

..Scarborough also on Saturday criticized Romney for his vague policies.

"Romney has been clear he will avoid specifics on balancing the budget and shrinking government. Not the Reagan and Thatcher way," he said. "The truth is that Thatcher would have lost in 1979 and Reagan would have lost in 1980 if they had run as timid a campaign ad Mitt Romney."

He responded to critics: "Yikes. Denial has set in. Circle the wagons, ignore the storm clouds, blindly follow...Go Team Go!!"

Is he the one that also said that he was getting anonymous leaks from within the Gop-e that they were worried —or was that another pundit. Joe can be so lame/whatever his reasons are, I agree with this statement.

I agree with Joe, for the most part. I wish Romney would talk more conservatism, but I’m not sure it is in his bones. However, negative ads against Obama will work and are, indeed, necessary.

“What does Scarborough know about being a real conservative?”

He knows what to say in order to get real conservatives not to vote, thus re-electing Obama.

Like others here, I agree wth Joe’s premise, but he’s in no position to judge. He’ spent how many years trying to damage conservatives, and spread lies. He was probably behind Romney or f’ing Huntsman in the primary. He is the first to attack anyone communicating bold conservatism.

Scarborough isn't responsible for the fact that Romney is the pathetic hump who managed to lose to McCain.

Your statement lacks logic.

But, why would we look to a Manahattan pansy liberal like lil Joey Scarborough to tell us who conservatives are?

“Scarborough isn’t responsible for the fact that Romney is the pathetic hump who managed to lose to McCain. “

McCain didn’t win the 2008 nomination by being more conservative than Romney.

Everybody wants to blame “the GOP” and “the E”...., or Romney...

But the truth of the matter is that we conservatives beat ourselves by not unifying around one conservative.

So, we are to blame as much as anybody.

Our weakness is reiterated by our inability to rally to beat Obama.

You don’t make sense.

We had Gingrich, Santorum, and a host of others to rally around...we didn’t...so we were divided and weak and got Romney.

Mitt has balanced more budgets than the idiot Scarabrow.

And Mitt hasn’t added billions of debt to the USA like the idiot Scarabrow either!

Keep it on the original topic that you inserted.

You need to direct your temper/ anger/soap box lecture to the Gop-e and Mitt; not to the people working the grassroots who want to keep truth in their lives.

‘..He knows what to say in order to get real conservatives not to vote, thus re-electing Obama...’

I watched Joe Scarborough sit quietly and let Chris Matthews give a lengthy, nasty speech directed at Reince Priebus. Scarborough’s co-host, who I believe is a liberal, finally said to Matthews..’tone’. I had little respect for Scarborough and, after this, I have zero respect for him. imho, he is just another self absorbed, phony.

Scarborough is a 15 minutes of fame politician who decided, like many others, that he didn’t want to work.

Are you confused again?

No anger here. We conservatives handed this nomination to Romney, because of our inability to unify to beat him.

The GOPe didn’t build that. We did.

Scarborough hates conservatives. He’s the party guy who had a dead intern found in his office before he got out of Washington.

But, he’s right that progressive Mittens is screwing up. The Left is not going to vote for him so he can stop with the moderate socialist number and just put on his socialist red face on after he gets elected. His natural and real political enemy are conservatives. Its hard to pretend that you are a conservatives when you hate conservatives and it’s hard to critize a socialist when you are a socialist.

During the primaries, he came up with a clever and hopeful response about Romneycare -that it was for one small liberal state and should not be federalized and imposed on the whole Nation. Now he all Federal Mr. Romneycare. Do they not know how much Americans hate Obama’s socialist take over of medicine?

He’s looking more and more like he’s trying to lose. Americans will say to themselves, if is no difference between the two, then go with the socialist animal you know rather than the socialist animal you don’t know.

If he was smart and a really good guy, he’d take on Obama’s abuse of power. Start questioning the TSA abuse of Americans and ask why Homeland inSecurity has named vets domestic terrorists. Anything to make himself look like he beleives in the constitutional republic would help make him different with Mr. communist Executive Orders.

So has George Soros. By your "logic," that makes him a conservative, as well.

Fail harder, next time.
