Scarborough: Obama owes an apology to the American people

posted at 2:55 pm on April 5, 2011 by Ed Morrissey

Let’s see how far into this clip you can get. I got as far as Mika Brzezinski asserting that Barack Obama can still feel that keeping Gitmo open and conducting military tribunals offends his morals but decide to do it anyway, and keep his credibility. The rest of the panel defended Obama to some degree, although not on the timing — about which more in a moment — while Joe Scarborough sat incredulous in the middle. During the entire 2008 campaign, Scarborough says, he had to sit and listen as panelists described George Bush and Dick Cheney as “evil” for their detention policies, fueled by the candidate who has adopted them practically in toto. Obama owes an apology to the American people, Scarborough says, and perhaps he owes apologies to two in particular:

Visit msnbc.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

Maybe [President Obama] should have just disagreed with Dick Cheney and George W. Bush – and not characterized them in a way that assumed the absolute worst — that they somehow did not love the constitution as much as Barack Obama — that they were somehow willing to shred that document and all the rights that we hold so dear … Because if you’re going to make those claims, and then do the same thing that they do, then you need to apologize to the American people.

Matt Lewis calls this the acknowledgment of the “painfully obvious”:

In retrospect, it is painfully obvious that much of the anti-Bush rhetoric that helped propel Obama to the White House in 2008 was unwarranted, irresponsible, and transparently political.  (Yes, it’s water under the bridge, but setting the record straight on history is an important task for opinion leaders.)

It was painfully obvious at the time, too, as some of us (including Matt) wrote at the time.  The detention policies followed centuries of precedent in American conflicts, as well as the rules of war concerning illegal combatants.  We have never used the federal courts to adjudicate detentions abroad from military and intelligence operations during wars in the past.  Even the Nuremberg trials, the supposed gold standard of the species, were military tribunals with no rights of appeal.  The allegations of “evil” and “anti-American” were always sheer demagoguery.  Obama found that out the hard way, and finally had to acknowledge reality.

The timing is spectacularly foolish.  It had to be inadvertent, but it’s extraordinarily self-defeating for the reasons Scarborough and his panel cite.  Obama campaigned on change, and has delivered continuity instead in the very policies that his supporters detested.  But most damaging, it exposes Obama as a demagogue at the very launch of his next campaign.  Even apart from the apologies Obama owes to Bush, Cheney, and the American people, why should anyone believe a word he says as a candidate ever again?

Every position and every word that comes out of Obama’s mouth is to his political advantage and comes with an expiration date.

So, does Scarborough. He’s been a compliant tool.

Why did anyone believe a word, so far?

Oh, and AP was hilarious by lauding Mika last night.

Uh, just shooting from the hip here: because he is cool, because he can read a mean telepromter, because he has an attractive family, and because…sorry that’s all I’ve got. Wait, were you looking for something substantive?

Kataklysmic on April 5, 2011 at 3:00 PM

IF being pressed (well, it could happen), he’ll make an ‘apology’ to make sure it is your fault that he has to apologize for whatever it is he does not feel apologetic.

Sir Napsalot on April 5, 2011 at 3:00 PM

Maybe Mika could get her dad to do some apologizing too.

flyfisher on April 5, 2011 at 3:00 PM

I like Mika and she’s usually not a jerk, so I’m going to pretend that she’s convulsing here not over Cheney gasping for air but at either (a) the audacious tastelessness of the gags or (b) the sheer stale hackishness of the bit. Pretend with me.

The dude made me laugh tears. He deserves a raise, for this alone.

Obama will go out campaigning saying he inherited this mess from himself.

Electrongod on April 5, 2011 at 3:00 PM

I’d guess the timing was intentional. They thought that the announcement of the campaign kick-off would “distract” from Holder’s/Soetoro’s GITMO announcement.

aquaviva on April 5, 2011 at 3:00 PM

The Democrats would sooner be waterboarded than apologize. That would be to admit Bush was right.

Besides, since they have absolutely no shame and cannot feel emotions such as guilt or remorse, why should we even bother to wait for them to apologize?

Del Dolemonte on April 5, 2011 at 3:00 PM

Well, this is a start.
Sometimes others sit back, not wanting to be the first to utter these things.
Would be nice if they see this as ‘cover’ and continue this vein of discussion ???

Yeah, I know.

pambi on April 5, 2011 at 3:01 PM

Did Mika get a text from the White House telling Scarborough to shut up during the show?

Couldn’t get past the introductions…sorry.

Because he says it so well! /

A person has to have the right attitude to vote for Democrats. The right attitude is the attitude of a man who hits himself in the head with a hammer because it feels so good when he stops.

Don’t sweat the small apologies. How about just an apology for recruiting more al-Qaeda by continuing to keep Gitmo open?

misterpeasea on April 5, 2011 at 3:03 PM

Hollerman (whatever) telegraphed the pitch. Soetoro really didn’t care about GITMO per say, only the torture that occurred there.

aquaviva on April 5, 2011 at 3:04 PM

Rush pointed on this yesterday. He feels those people that demonized Bush for what he did, and those same things Obama continues to do, well…..Bush is either owed an apology, or everyone must agree that Obama is as big an idiot as they claimed Bush was for these very same things.

Meanwhile, the shiny happy commies in the MSM will completely ignore Obama’s flip-flop.

Ward Cleaver on April 5, 2011 at 3:11 PM

To Obama’s supporters, the fact that Eric Holder acted like a 5-year-old going to the dentist when he announced KSM’s trial wouldn’t be in New York is enough justification for them to keep saying the president doesn’t owe Bush any apologies. As Holder inferred, it’s not that Team Obama wanted to hold the trials at Gitmo, it’s that those irresponsible congresspeople forced them to move the trials back to Gitmo (nevermind that the initial action by Congress was done last year, when the Democrats controlled both the House and the Senate).

So Scarbarough can rant, but the rest of the MSNBC on-air talent isn’t going to abandon their man over this little policy shift, because he really didn’t want to do it. As for Mika, just run that wacky, madcap David Letterman bit on Dick Cheney’s heart surgery again, and she’ll forget all about being gloomy over Obama going back on his campaign promise.

jon1979 on April 5, 2011 at 3:11 PM

Don’t fool yourselves. The left will still come out in full force for obama in 2012.

Blake on April 5, 2011 at 3:07 PM

Not like they did in ’08. Then, it was all about The One being the anti-Bush…hopey-changey…a new dawn…etc. Obviously, Obama has disappointed many of his supporters. That “magical feeling” is gone for them. But the thing is, the GOP is lacking a good charismatic competition. Someone like Palin has charisma, but may not capture the moderates and indy’s. The rest of the potential field is a snooze…save Daniels, of course ;)

JetBoy on April 5, 2011 at 3:12 PM

All the GOP candidate has to do is play soundbites from Obama’s 2008 speeches, and then list what he’s really done.

Ward Cleaver on April 5, 2011 at 3:12 PM

Scarborough makes nice with leftists every workday. Making them accountable for their lies and hypocrisies every once in a blue moon is all he’s good for.

Terrie on April 5, 2011 at 3:12 PM

The main point of Mika’s argument is basically that Obama is pure and good and has good motives, so it doesn’t matter what his actions are. They are so caught up in this cult of personality that he could do ANYTHING and they would not care.

BakerAllie on April 5, 2011 at 3:14 PM

…why should anyone believe a word he says as a candidate ever again?

As many said at the time, his record showed that people shouldn’t have believed him *then*. The bottom line is that people will vote for him again *knowing* he’s lying, because at their core, they are like him in their lack of ethics/morals/defined standards of right and wrong/actual love of country and American exceptionalism/etc.

And they will always hate conservatives who do have those things.

Midas on April 5, 2011 at 3:15 PM

The looks on Mika Brzezinski’s face are so precious when facts or arguments go against her politics. The entertainment value is fantastic!

Ohhhhh, the irony!! Cuz that never happens on MSNBC, noooooo…. Bwahahahahah….

Dopenstrange on April 5, 2011 at 3:16 PM

Scarborough wasn’t hard enough on Obama in this clip. He didn’t say a word when one of the panelists defended Obama on GITMO because he claimed that at least the policies of torture were put to an end. But that’s a load of BS. Rendition is still allowed under this administration. Torture is torture, no matter where it happens.

Doughboy on April 5, 2011 at 3:17 PM

Even apart from the apologies Obama owes to Bush, Cheney, and the American people, why should anyone believe a word he says as a candidate ever again?

Because liberals enjoy being disappointed? Because the liberal media says it’s ok to lie if your intentions are pure? Because we need four more years for Obama to complete America’s transition into a third world country?

I give up.

Rovin on April 5, 2011 at 3:18 PM

We have never used the federal courts to adjudicate detentions abroad from military and intelligence operations during wars in the past. Even the Nuremberg trials…

Easily explained: The trial lawyers are big Democrat contributors.

Just think of all the taxpayer funded legal fees going to an army of lawyers for decades of work supporting thousands of terrorists and how much of that money would end up in Democrat pockets.

It was nice to see Joe Scarborough to wake up for a couple minutes though.

RJL on April 5, 2011 at 3:18 PM

Even apart from the apologies Obama owes to Bush, Cheney, and the American people, why should anyone believe a word he says as a candidate ever again?

His BS started even before he ran…when he told the media he would not run for POTUS in the ’08 elections. And the main reasons the Lefty base voted for him, those promises of ending Iraq and Gitmo etc…peace, love, and unicorns…all broken.

Obama found that out the hard way, and finally had to acknowledge reality…

Ptui. Little Bammie will never acknowledge the trail of wreckage he leaves in his wake, and he gets away with it because he controls 99% of the media and 99% of the liberals that write history books.

slickwillie2001 on April 5, 2011 at 3:24 PM

It was not a lie,
Since nobody believed it.
There was no intent.

Zero was just repeating empty slogans back during the campaign. It was obvious to anybody that it was all meaningless blather. How can meaningless blather be a lie?

For one reason or another, all Zero had to do was not screw up too badly on his johnson in order to be elected President. Nothing he said matter. Anybody who listened to what he was saying has only himself to blame.

In retrospect, it is painfully obvious that much of the anti-Bush rhetoric that helped propel Obama to the White House in 2008 was unwarranted, irresponsible, and transparently political.

Painfully obvious to everyone, at the time, except the ones verbalizing it.

Clearly, Mika is ok with a U.S. President doing evil, Anti-American stuff. As long as it’s the guy she voted for.

Isn’t that comforting?

hawksruleva on April 5, 2011 at 3:30 PM

It’s a problem of “enemy identification …

A once-classified FBI memo reveals that the bureau treated a senior ABC News journalist as a potential confidential informant in the 1990s, pumping the reporter to ascertain the source of a sensational but uncorroborated tip that the network had obtained during its early coverage of the Oklahoma City bombing.
The journalist, whose name is not disclosed in the document labeled “secret,” not only cooperated but provided the identity of a confidential source, according to the FBI memo — a possible breach of journalistic ethics if he or she did not have the source’s permission.

right2bright on April 5, 2011 at 3:45 PM

Yes, it’s water under the bridge, but setting the record straight on history is an important task for opinion leaders.

Really? does that include setting the record straight on that water-under-the-bridge issue of authorship of Mr. Obama’s so-called ‘autobiography?’ That is certainly a task that has not been set straight, especially by opinion leaders.

ted c on April 5, 2011 at 3:45 PM

Hmmm.

Did Joe Scarborough ever apologize to his former constituents in Florida for impersonating a Republican?

Just curious …

And of course Mika conveniently omits that it was a filibuster proof Senate and overwhelmingly Democrat House that refused to fund it . . .

She’s hoping people read her lack of mention as the GOP did it. It was Obama’s own party that failed to make his dream of spilling US secrets into a courtroom a reality.

Mord

I agree with this with one proviso. This will be hard to follow, but those who voted for Obama are not going to vote against him just because he has continued Bush’s policies. They will still prefer to have Obama carrying out policies they don’t agree with than a Republican doing so. The key will be to get Democrats to stay away from the polls – which I think they are more likely to do if they remain disappointed in the President. If, however, Obama is able to blame Republicans for his shortcomings – which of course is his usual tactic – he may be able to swing a 2nd term after all.

That was on top of Holder doing his best Flip Wilson routine, contending “the devil made him do it” as he blamed “Congress” (overwhelmingly controlled by Dems at the time) for the inability to hold the civilian trials that he knows are the “right thing to do.”

BuckeyeSam on April 5, 2011 at 4:21 PM

None of this really matters if the electorate doesn’t know, pay attention or care. Obama is free to contradict himself, make a fool of himself, or whatever else you want to say, but in the end he will win re-election because the voters are too lazy and the MSM too corrupt to do anything about it.

We have gone soft and stupid.

“Whoever takes a human life shall surely be put to death. Whoever takes an animal’s life shall make it good, life for life. If anyone injures his neighbor, as he has done it shall be done to him, fracture for fracture, eye for eye, tooth for tooth; whatever injury he has given a person shall be given to him. Whoever kills an animal shall make it good, and whoever kills a person shall be put to death. You shall have the same rule for the sojourner and for the native, for I am the LORD your God.” – Leviticus 24:17-21

Justice needs to return to when the offender “shall make it good”.

Well, there’s your viewership problem right here, MSNBC!!

Maybe have your marketing department give this a thought: why would anyone tune to MSNBC to get the opinion of people like these, whose highest realistic aspiration would seem to be to convince us that they are merely laughably hopeless naifs, but not actually the dishonest blackguards they more realistically seem to be?

Think about it. Anyone who would value their time so little as to watch this crap probably has no job and no disposable income to spend on your advertizers’ products, if in fact they are not actually institutionalized.

Nah. The timing is great, actually. This’ll be conveniently forgotten by the MBM in plenty of time before the elections, and nobody else on the Left will dare to bring it up.

It will be one of many bludgeons applied by the Right, but it’ll be mostly ineffective because it’ll either bring Bush back into the conversation, much to the Left’s glee (with the full arsenal of misrepresentations & lies at hand), or be dismissed as “dredging up the past” and subsequently ignored by the press.

Sorry, Ed, but nothing’s going to make any difference. Obama’ll lie, cheat, and steal his way back into a second term, and the rest of the country will suffer as a result.

nukemhill on April 5, 2011 at 5:22 PM

Obama has lied every single time he has opened his mouth since he started running for public office. He’s completely corrupt, insufferably arrogant, depraved and devoid of principle. Can people not see his lack of character?! It’s clear that this man–willing to toss his own grandmother under the bus and impugn her publicly–is a narcissist! One has to be an utter fool to trust him. He won’t “apologize.” He’ll continue to corrupt our country and bleed us dry; he’ll continue to lie, cheat, and steal our future. If the Democrats continue to shill for this man, they’re toast!
