Video: WH to Scarborough – stop being an “a-hole”

posted at 3:37 pm on October 9, 2009 by Ed Morrissey

Tommy Christopher at Mediaite puts together a mashup-up of unmissable moments from Morning Joe this morning, but none with the clarity of the moment that comes at the 1:30 mark of the clip, as the White House responds in real time to Joe Scarborough’s insistence that Barack Obama is no … Marisa Tomei. What’s so controversial about that?

In the last three minutes, Scarborough goes on a rant about Rush Limbaugh, who called Scarborough a “chickified” conservative in response to Scarborough’s worry about cheering the lost Olympic bid. Scarborough accuses Rush and other Republicans and conservatives of keeping their “testicles in a blind trust” for George W. Bush for eight years, which only proves that Scarborough didn’t bother to listen much to Rush during that period of time. Rush stoutly defended Bush on his foreign policy, but routinely ripped Republicans for their massive spending.

On that score, Scarborough also manages to get the deficit blame wrong. The FY2009 deficit of $1.5 trillion has more to do with Democrats than Bush. While Bush committed $700 billion in TARP bailout funds, that got pushed by Nancy Pelosi harder than anyone. Democrats also bypassed Bush on that budget, refusing to pass the FY2009 plan until after Obama took office — and they didn’t bother to cut spending at all to accommodate that TARP bailout. Instead, they hiked spending substantially, which created the record deficit this year. For that matter, Democrats controlled Congress and spending for the FY2008 budget, too. Perhaps Scarborough should pay a little more attention. (via Gateway Pundit)

Shocking that a liberal ( Rino ) avoids truth.

That’s the first I’ve seen the clip of him just laughing at the news. That was pretty much my reaction this morning too.

Mika’s attitude towards Joe pretty much sums up the entire liberal attitude towards any criticism of Obama.

Notice she didn’t ask what was wrong with the White House making such a statement.

Rush stoutly defended Bush on his foreign policy, but routinely ripped Republicans for their massive spending.

I don’t remember hearing much of this from Rush. At least not during Bush’s first term which is when Scarborough released his book warning about runaway spending.

I DO remember tuning into the Rush Limbaugh program one time and hearing him actually defend Bush’s deficit spending. He said something along the lines of Reagan participated in deficit spending and it helped rejuvenate the economy. When I heard that, I lost a lot of respect for Rush. I will just chalk that up to a moment of partisanship in a post 9-11 era when our President was being crucified for trying to protect us but the only voices I remember clearly and consistantly coming out against spending at the time were Scarborough and McCain.

Daemonocracy on October 9, 2009 at 3:48 PM

And Scarborough is pretty stupid, too. That might be his saving grace, that he’s just too dumb to understand what he says. I’ll give him that.

Rush always complained about Bush.

He ripped him repeatedly on no child left behind.

On the prescription drug program.

An on portions of the patriot act as well. Mainly the nationalization of the security checkers which removed any chance of getting competent people checking bags.

Liberal douchebag Mikey Medved had Joe on his show a couple weeks ago and spent the whole time explaining how Joe was a great conservative, and anyone who didn’t get that must be an unhinged nut and a threat to the future of the GOP.

So.

Daemonocracy on October 9, 2009 at 3:56 PM

And someone needs to give Scarborough a remedial lesson in finance and show him that government spending is not what caused the credit crisis. Only a total moron would think of something like that and a bigger one would say it on TV. Scarborough hates conservatives, for whatever reason, and spends all of his time trying to claim he is one. He is a sad joke.

And this headline is deceptive. This is about Blow Scarborough claiming to be a conservative more than anything.

progressoverpeace on October 9, 2009 at 3:57 PM

I wouldn’t use the word “chickified”, but Scarborough is definitely a phony. He’ll throw the occasional bone to conservatives, but he’s definitely in the McCain/Graham wing of the party.

He’s parroting another one of the false narratives the Dems and their supporters have been driving for months. The tired claim that conservatives were silent while Bush and the GOP spent like drunken sailors. I’ll allow that many on the right were not as vocal as they should’ve been during the first 4-5 years of Bush’s Presidency(although we weren’t silent), but anyone who was paying attention knows damn well that all that changed in his 2nd term.

Do they remember the amnesty debate? Or TARP? Or any of the other bailouts? This all happened before the era(or error) of Obama. And it’s not like conservatives were all that happy about No Child Left Behind, McCain-Feingold, or the Medicare prescription drug package.

Is the anger conservatives have toward Obama and the Pelosi-Reid Congress more intense than what Bush and the GOP had to endure from the right from 2001-2006? Yes, it is. But there are two very good reasons for this, and neither has to do with hypocrisy or race. One is that Obama and the Dems are spending and expanding government at a rate that Bush never even dreamed of. And two, the current GOP leadership has neither the backbone nor the votes to stop any of this. We HAVE to be loud and distruptive to have any chance of stopping this.

Daemonocracy on October 9, 2009 at 4:03 PM

Someone needs to tell Scarborough, the moron, that it was a DEMOCRAT Congress that pushed for, and passed, the TARP. It was the House Republicans who held it back to force them to put some oversight in it, but TARP was a Dem bill. Maybe Joe needs to go back and review Pelosi and Reid threatening people about needing to pass it and caling House GOPers all kinds of names. How quickly people forget.

Daemonocracy on October 9, 2009 at 4:03 PM

I used to watch SCarborough a bit and I never got that impression. Did he ever call for getting rid of the Dept of Ed? Did he ever call for actual cuts in spending, or did he just criticize spending?

I haven’t seen him raise Constitutinal objections to the national socialization of health care. I see him accept the insane projections for it, and let liberals babble on about all kinds of lunacy.

All Scarborough ever does is rag on conservatives. That is the extent of his routine. Did you hear him blame spending for the credit crisis in the clip above? What sort of “conservative” has that sort of idea?

Scarborough doesn’t know the Constitution, doesn’t understand national security, doesn’t really attack government spending in any signidficant way. He makes stuff up. He gets along with leftists. That’s all he does.

Like I said, he gets to a good point once a month. Great. My dog has a better record than that.

Abby Adams on October 9, 2009 at 3:54 PM

Still, except for getting fed up with idiots like Max Blumethal once in a blue moon, Scarborough does a phenomenal job rolling over an playing dead for liberals. He reads far too many liberal talking points, so he’s alway down on the GOP. He doesn’t think any of them are entitled to criticize the current level of spending–to which I say he should identify those who should be singled out. There are still a fair number who deserve to be lauded.

Worst of all, however, Morning Joe does get some conservative members of Congress on who are great on fiscal matters: Gregg, Ryan, Coburn, and others. And these guys always give the panel a thorough schooling in economics and so forth, but the next time a liberal guest gets on and blabs nonsense, Scarborough and the other tools don’t challenge them. I saw them with Coburn in the studio–not just some short segment from a remote location–and he solved all of DC’s problems in about 10 minutes. Smart, cool, collected–Mika B., Barnacle, and Geist were blown away. Coburn made so much sense, they couldn’t disagree.

BuckeyeSam on October 9, 2009 at 4:11 PM

If conservatives “stayed silent” about the Bush and the out of control spending of the GOP then why did the GOP get booted so badly, Mr. Chickified “Mika’s Got My Whole Package In A Tin Lockbox Under The Desk And Kicks It Every 4 Minutes Whether I Need It Or Not” Scarborough?

No big surprise just about any Democrat not hiding under a rock knows in just a few months the liberal mantra has failed in the most monumental way and some have already given up the idea of a permanent progressive majority.

This is absolutely typical of liberals after realizing they’ve lost the debate, blame, accuse, attack, distract, its the death rattle that evil makes before it disappears to return in another guise.

Its what online cowardly (they all are) liberal debaters attackers do right before the pseudonym they’re using vanishes and the same CS A-hole pops back up under another new name.

Evil never dies, it just renames the folder.

Let them cry and soil their panties because not only is it unattractive, if they’re screaming, we’re winning.

Just check his record.

He signed the contract with America and supported the Fiscal Responsibility act

– Voted No on No Child Left Behind
– Voted in favor of School vouchers
– Supports a constitutional amendment for school prayer

– voted for Bush tax cuts
– voted to eliminate marriage penalty and death tax

– voted against McCain-Feingold

– Strong on abortion and National defense…

He’s a pretty conservative guy. No way will I throw him to the wolves the way I throw Brooks or Frum. He is not nearly as offensive as those cretins in my opinion. He also is a lot tougher on liberals than the limp wristed Lindsey Graham ever is as well.

Daemonocracy on October 9, 2009 at 4:38 PM

Joe may simply protecting his livelihood. We know that MSNBC is not a home for conservative views. Daemonocracy brings up some votes that are conservative. If Joe were to talk a more pure conservatism on MSNBC, would he loose viewers and, eventually, his job? Maybe he is playing it safe.

WashJeff on October 9, 2009 at 4:50 PM

Sounds like Joe got his feelings hurt.
I am one of those that just sat quietly by and let things get in the shape that they are now.
It’s a sad thing to have to admit, that I was also manipulated by the progressives over the last 56 years into believing that our government including good old Joe were actually doing their jobs and looking out for the people of our nation.
Me and most of the people like me (the millions like me) that Joe just insulted are awake now.
Barrack tried to do to much too fast and blew the plan to turn this country into just another toilet on the planet.
We are not acting all big and bad, we are big and bad and getting bigger, and we are not just calling Obama bad names that we make up, we are just simply pointing out what he is.
And apparantly what old Joe also is.

mrcarter123 on October 9, 2009 at 4:50 PM

I wouldn’t go that far, but I’d allow “kind-of” conservative on spending.

Daemonocracy on October 9, 2009 at 4:38 PM

I can agree with this. But the fact is that the bulk of Scarborough’s time is spent ragging on conservatives and he does let liberals get away with murder. He’s not that far from Parker or Brooks or Frum, who can also point to a few psotions that I would agree with.

Scarborough was a lover of the idiot messiah during the campaign, BTW, from what I recall. He had some issues with policy, but that didn’t seem to faze him too much. He finally cam to his senses some time after the inauguration, as it was clear that the Precedent couldn’t put together a cabinet and was doing NOTHING about the financial system, but Joe let that go and returned to his old ways.

Look, to me, the above clip is a perfect snapshot of Scarborough. The Precedent gets a total joke award. The White House issues an insane, cursing missive at Scarborough (as a 7 year old would do) and Scarborough compares it to Rush and spends the whole time complaining about Rush and screaming that he, Joe Scarborough, is a “real” conservative.

progressoverpeace on October 9, 2009 at 4:51 PM

Can we please stop pretending like Rush was some deficit hawk during Bush’s terms, let alone his first term? Like many of us, he was 100% engaged in defending Bush on terrorism and Iraq issues. He didn’t want to saddle us with Kerry and I am happy he did that. But we shouldn’t make stuff up about his virtues.

Speedwagon82 on October 9, 2009 at 4:51 PM

In Joe Scarborough’s defense, Limbaugh did say this after election day:

But the way I feel is this: I feel liberated, and I’m just going to tell you as plainly as I can why. I no longer am going to have to carry the water for people who I don’t think deserve having their water carried. Now, you might say, “Well, why have you been doing it?” Because the stakes are high. Even though the Republican Party let us down, to me they represent a far better future for my beliefs and therefore the country’s than the Democrat [sic] Party does and liberalism.

YYZ on October 9, 2009 at 4:54 PM

Here we see the schizophrenic mind of the conservative who spends too much time with the limosine elite. His Limbaugh rant … that’s for his new boyfriends. His laughing at Obama winning the Nobel Dynamite Mea Culpa … that’s the real Joe.

That’s the thing about the Triumvirate (Limbaugh, Levin, Hannity), they give lukewarm criticism of the GOP when they go socialist, and then tell you to vote for them in the next election.

I agree – it is usually Allah that finds it necessary to post a thread about one of the MSLSD crew.

Joe is not very stable. He alters his position according to his guests. Why anyone would watch a show that has regular guests like Pat (Hitler wasnt so bad) Buchanan and Zveg (lets fookin bomb Israel and get it over with) Brezinski is beyond me.

IMUS will cut his ratings in half. Currently more people watch Red Eye at 4am than RINO Joe.

The eye dear put up by HuffPuff that Joe will run for President is proof that the lefties that appear on his show regularly should be given public drug tests.

TugboatPhil on October 9, 2009 at 3:42 PM

But He does have a good point about many so-called “conservatives.” Many of the same people who are outraged by the things Obama is doing now had no problem with it during the Bush years. Many of them still defend the man to this day, and not just on foreign policy, but on domestic policy as well.

I know this because I see it every week right here on this website.

Most of the GOP criticism from these guys is token at best. I’m not all that familiar with Levin, but I do know that this is true with Rush, and especially Hannity. Which is a big reason why I no longer listen to their radio shows.

And he failed to note, once again, that Dems have controlled spending since 2006. But Joe never thinks about stuff like that. It’s not anti-conservaitve enough for him.

progressoverpeace on October 9, 2009 at 4:16 PM

I agree with you (and Rush) about the liberal hypocrite and phony conservative Joe Scarborough. But did or did not Bush sign TARP into law? Of course the Dems were in on it and pushed it hard. But that in no way excuses Bush or lessens his involvement. Without his John Hancock the bill had no chance, regardless of how much the Democrats wanted it. And same goes for all of the rest of the spending since 2006 that the Democrats were supposedly in control of.

2Brave2Bscared on October 10, 2009 at 4:43 AM

Questions at the local Tea Party community group meeting this week. “How can we change anything through the GOP when McCain, Graham, and Snowe are in positions of power?” or…”Will there come a time soon for Republicans to choose? Are they with US, or are they with THEM? McCain/Graham/Voinovich, or DeMint, Sessions and King?” Big Tent works in favor of the Statists.

Mr. Scarborough and dolt of a co-host both are both over the edge. they claim the problems we have today are caused by President Bush.

Mr. Scarborough and your dizzy and demented co-hostess, think real hard, I know your heads already hurt. All of the problems our nation face today are the result of socialist/left/Democratic policies (Great Society, the ME generation, and so many other handouts)enacted years ago and will always be carried forward. The only way to really change is to remember what the function of government is.

And the Republicans have nothing to do with it? Give me a break.

White House is stating the obvious .

Alright so Joe was against the massive spending the Republicans did under Bush.

Why then is he only supportive of the Republicans who spend like Democrats?

Did you notice how Joe seemed scared when he heard the White House told him to stop being an a__hole! Buck,buck,buck,buck,buckAHHHH!

Mika is hot, though. Dumb, but hot.

Just sayin’

maybe for thee, but not for me. Hotness is inversely proportional to intelligence. But maybe that’s just my old and cranky age showing. I seem to remember once upon a time when hotness was the end all, but then I grew up. I just don’t have time for fools except to point them out to my kids.

Yeah, and did you notice Mika throwing up her hand to block Blo when he suggested re-airing something — by context, I’m assuming the SNL skit. The next clip went to the A-hole message from WH. So was it for laughing over the allbull piece prize or the skit or both? Who knows… I’m not about to find out since my funmeter’s pegged on this subject.
