SCARBOROUGH: It's stunning to me that Rush Limbaugh would say that he was cheering against the president. I would be hard-pressed to find many things outside the area of education that I agree with Barack Obama on, but I want him to succeed.
RUSH: Stop tape. Now, that's just stupid. That is stupid, or maybe there's something else going on.
Yes, there is. Wanting Obama to succeed and at the same time disagreeing with him is dumb, and it makes Scarborough look dumb. I can imagine the people at MSNBC are delighting in making Joe look this dumb.
First, Scarborough used to be an angry guy in the House of Representatives back in the nineties. He embarrassed himself, and took a lot of grief from his peers, who wanted him to "moderate his tone," and "be reasonable."
After getting the recognition he felt he deserved in the House, he realized he could leave his fight behind, and be the "voice of reason" on television, "influencing the debate" on a much grander scale. His conservative credentials bestowed on him from Congress made him a prime candidate to be "the conservative" on a very liberal news channel.
Of course, nobody watches MSNBC, and the only reason he is even being discussed is because Rush mentioned him yesterday. In fact, I had to look up all the info on him, because I neither know nor care about this idiot. However, to show his stupidity, I decided to write about him, and break down what he just said.
At this point, Scarborough is learning how to say words that have no meaning to make his liberal friends happy. The mantra, "I want him to succeed," is what you say if you are a liberal when discussing Rush's four-word statement. Joe is in the final stages of being completely neutered. His principles are shot, and in no time, he will be drooling and sounding like Andy Rooney.
SCARBOROUGH: It's stunning to me that Rush Limbaugh would say that he was cheering against the president. I would be hard-pressed to find many things outside the area of education that I agreed with Barack Obama on. But I want him to succeed. I grew up with a grandmother that I saw, not cheering against the president of the United States, but praying for the president of the United States, praying for her country. I saw her even praying for Jimmy Carter. If you can pray for Jimmy Carter, you can pray for anybody. This is a vicious cycle. It's a vicious cycle, and voters are the only ones who will be able to break it.
Scarborough, with all his college education, and legal background, knows better than to misinterpret Rush's statement, nearly two years after he's said it. It is not stunning that Rush is cheering against the president, it is what the tea party is doing. Rush is in better tune with average Americans than Scarborough is, and it is more stunning that Scarborough fell so far in nine years.
He has learned how to talk to fill the time in each segment without raising any hackles at MSNBC. He used 117 words to say, "Let's be reasonable." With a direct shot at the one man who is reasonable, and principled. Joe is tired of fighting, comfy, and has turned completely away from what garnered him his conservative credentials. He is one of "them," has become their pet, ready to do anything they want to keep from having to think.
