    Commenting on the Obama Decision to leave Iraq to the mercies of Iran – uh, I mean, pulling out prematurely …

    David Petreaus, when in Command, said we’d be in Iraq for 100 years.

    But lo – Obama made him head of the CIA and now he’s both wrong – we’re leaving – and he’s head of our intelligence community.

    If I didn’t “get it” I”d be confused.

    Joe Scarborough Says All The GOP Frontrunners Have Longevity As The Number Three In Al Qaeda…just what we need, a conservative Republican making Al Qaeda comparisons to his own party…

    Is anyone else tired of so-called Republicans running down the Republican party, and stabbing it in the back whenever they can? The Joe Scarboroughs, the John McCains, the Colin Powells, Dede Scozzaffava, Arlen Specter, Jim Jeffords….am I missing any?

    Transcript of show:
    F. Chuck Todd: Now Joe, let me ask you this, if you were running in a Republican primary, and I told you candidate X were winning among high interest voters, men 55+, college educated and very conservative, and I told you candidate “Y” was winning amongst the less interested voters, women, and uh the moderate to liberal Republicans, would you rather be candidate “X” or candidate “Y” in a Republican primary?”
    Scarborough: Much rather be candidate “X”.
    F. Chuck Todd: Well, candidate “X” in this case is Herman Cain, and candidate “Y” is Mitt Romney.
    Scarborough: And candidate “X” last month was Rick Perry, and candidate “X” the month before that was Michelle Bachmann.
    F. Chuck Todd: and 2 months before that it was Donald Trump
    Scarborough: I mean Chuck the problem is candidate “X” has about as much longevity as the number three at Al-Qaida.

    —So, you would still choose to be candidate “X” despite being #3 of Al Qaida Joe? Meanwhile, all the other people on the discussion panel remain quiet.

    Scarborough: He called himself (Herman Cain) the Häagen-Dazs black walnut.– says it tastes good all the time, and it may taste good all the time, but mark it down, flavor of the week.
    Mika Brzezinski: Oh Joe, now you can’t go on your ipad, give it to me.
    Scarborough: No I’ll tell ya… remember last year when this happened we was upstairs Palin’s back, and I came out and I said, this isn’t gonna, nope nope, the mainstream Republican party will not accept her, oh all the hate mail?
    Mika Brezinski: Hate tweets, hate mail….
    Scarborough: Remember what I said about Glen Beck, that he wouldn’t make—last at Fox ‘cuz he was too extreme even for Fox, remember the hate mails about that, ‘that will never happen’ right right right…
    Mika Brezinski: Right
    Scarborough: then what I said about Michelle Bachmann after the Iowa….deal.
    Mika Brezinski: Same thing.

    –I guess people would rather be stabbed in the front by Democrats, than stabbed in the back by their own members Joe. –again, crickets from the other members of the discussion panel, why interrupt when he is bashing Republicans? If he bashed Democrats on any liberal show, they would have rushed in and cut him off right there.

    Scarborough: Oh, so angry, they get so angry and it made me sad right here, it really does when I hurt you, it huts me, I want you to know that, and I’m telling you the truth and it upsets you. And I don’t want to upset you. I really don’t. It’s like at that I said about Newt, remember Newt? He’d come on and I wrote a really stinging op-ed saying this guy was too extreme his rhetoric is too extreme…to win? I was called hateful Joe you still carry a grudge, why do I carry a grudge, he didn’t kick us out of Washington, we kicked him out of Washington and they go on and on and on…It must be irritating to these wing-nuts who keep calling me a RINO? That I know the Republican Party better than they know the Republican Party? In fact, I got the Republican Party nailed down, I know the heart of the Republican Party, they know the heart of nut-bar-land, so let me just say, Herman Cain, flavor of the week. He will not win the nomination.

    –Wow, spoken like a true conservative.

    Here is Joe as a guest columnist at the left-wing POLITICO bashing Palin and Beck: http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0111/47705.html

    Joe AGAIN on POLITICO bashing Newt Gingrich: http://www.politico.com/news/stories/1010/43428.html

    Joe is more of a right-leaning Democrat than an actual Republican. Maybe that is why MSNBC loves this guy?

      These circle-jerkers are erroneously under the impression that anyone of import actually cares what they think. Scarborough may believe he understands the Republican Party, but if there’s anything the American viewing public understands, it’s that A) PMSNBC is an Immelt-owned, Soros-operated propogandist mouth piece and group therapy channel for all the failures of the White House, where all hosts and guests are coming up with talking points trying to impress and curry the favor of the regime; and B) nobody can match the Bamster and Democrats for extremism. Just this week according to them our party apparently has been for dirtier air/water, rape and murder; that’s on top of our usual platform of wanting to kill old people, children to go hungry, women to go back to the kitchen, black people to get hung, and most importantly rich old white guys getting all the monies.

      Sooo yeah, the more irrelevant they get, the more petulant – the smellier the turd they are gonna spew. Bet on it.

    • sticks says:

      Just wait till the campaign heats up, then the propogandists will vomit their excretement for all to gag on and blame the conservitives for the whole stinking nasty mess.

    Coulter/Chumpundit: Why not Romney/Cain?


    Me: Why doesn’t Romney promise to make the Executive and Judicial appointments Cain would make, embrace a bold plan like 9-9/0-9 –

    Oh yeah, and actually win the primary vote.

    THEN we talk about Romney/Cain.

    How many times do we have to say we’re more interested in candidates earning the endorsement of voters than those from would-be kingmakers?

    the only thing that will stop America from becomming moslem is the fact that American women won’t wear hijabs, we’d rather die than have to cover up our beautiful American hair.

    I see now why today was about trying to pin Perry into a birtherism corner.

    The Cut, Balance, and Grow proposal is fantastic.

    Daniel Horowitz@Redstate has an analysis of the central details: http://www.redstate.com/dhorowitz3/2011/10/25/a-conservative-look-at-perrys-economic-plan/

    There are two prisms through which I view these plans, and that’s their substantive value and their political viability. What I think is particularly brilliant and unique about this plan is how difficult it will be for the Left to demagogue it when it amounts to across the board tax cuts, with no consumption tax or other new tax revenues having to be argued as part of the reform.

    I think that’s really effective in setting this tax discussion against the backdrop of the imperative objective to cut government spending. That’s where this plan is a total grand slam: an aggressive but achievable 18% spending to GDP cap, returning us to Clinton-era levels. Real, named department cuts; regulation reviews and moratoriums, small Social Security/Medicare changes to make them sustainable short term with discussion about some ideas on long-term structural changes. It is all there, the whole enchilada.

    Absolutely fantastic work done by Perry’s team. But can the Quarterback make the completion? Can Perry hone an articulate, optimistic message to explain and persuade people why this plan is the sexiest political document America’s seen in decades? Or will his campaign continue to be marred by unforced errors and a little too much shooting from the hip when the situation calls for a steady aim?

    On that note, I would appreciate it if I could borrow the white board Karl Rove was using to list all of Herman Cain’s “gaffes” which make him unelectable so I could try and remember all those infamous Bushisms.

    But then I realized that whiteboard wouldn’t quite be big enough, would it? Besides, I have a whole volume with hundreds of pages of political cartoons dedicated to Bushisms.

    It’s okay Rove. Alzheimer’s is rampant among Washington Establishmentarians, we know it all too well.
