Since when are Mika and Joe the standard bearers of who is conservative? And why would Mika Brzezinski be excited about any conservative running for office? She’s a self proclaimed liberal. That should tell everyone anything they need to know about Mitt Romney’s candidacy.
This will almost make your head explode.
Despite his severe criticism of the Republican candidate during the 2012 Presidential campaign, on Tuesday, the Morning Joe host gushed that Romney could be “a great hope” for conservatives.
Scarborough’s latest 180 occurred during the A-block of his MSNBC show as panelists discussed the President’s recent endorsement of Romney for the Utah senatorial race. The segment began, somewhat ironically, with a montage which alternated between clips of the Trump and the former Senator insulting each other, ending with a screenshot of Romney’s tweet accepting the President’s endorsement. But while the video aimed to highlight Republican hypocrisy, the panelists displayed quite a bit of hypocrisy themselves during the ensuing discussion.
“There are a lot of good conservatives out there,” Scarborough remarked, “and Mitt Romney is actually a great – a great focus for them. A great hope for them that somebody will come in and be a traditional conservative.” He went on:
“Conservatism in Washington, D.C. is dead… Mitt Romney, though, is an opening. And he is an opportunity to return, as he said in his speech, to the conservatism that was the conservatism when I was here, a conservatism of balanced budgets, of less debt, of opening your arms to legal immigrants across the world, of embracing free trade…
That’s basically his message right now and it’s a message that a lot of conservatives are going to be excited about.”
Let’s get something clear, right now. Joe Scarborough gave up his conservative cred a long time ago, and Mika never had any. Neither have any business telling real conservatives who is a good candidate for our party.
