Gee, I wonder which network Joe had in mind . . .
Joe Scarborough likes Haley Barbour. But he doesn’t like the “optics” of the southern governor running for president against Barack Obama. Scarborough’s worried that “certain networks” would “maul” the man Scarborough referred to as “Boss Hogg.” [H/t reader Ray R.]
Interestingly, both the Politico’s Jim VandeHei and Tina Brown of the Daily Beast were able to see more of an upside for Haley. VandeHei described him as best among Republicans at articulating conservative principles, while Brown saw the hands-on governor’s potential as the “un-Barack.”
Also revealing was that in praising Barbour, Scarborough focused solely on Haley’s willingness to stand up against the “crackpots” in the Republican party.
Watch as Joe tiptoes his way through the minefield of MSNBC’s internal politics.
Brit Hume in a commentary about Tiger Woods suggested that Woods seek the precepts of Christianity with regard to “Forgiveness”. His comments sent MSNBC’s bobbling head Keith Olbermann into an expolsion:
But on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe”, Brit Hume got support from Joe Scarborough:
Olbermann is entitled to his views and opinions, and is allowed to spew them ad nauseum, but because Brit Hume evoked GOD in the conversation, he is open to chastisement from the Left. Olbermann…. get a life!!
Here is video of MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough telling fellow panelists this morning that the White House War on Fox News is designed to play to their two bases – the far-Left and the Washington Press Corps. Scarborough said the White House hopes to keep other media outlets from following Fox News stories in the future – stories like ACORN, Van Jones, and now Anita Dunn. Fox News has led the way on all these stories, and the White House has seen other media eventually report on ACORN and Van Jones. They want that to stop.
I think Scarborough is right on target here.
