Bad news: Joe Scarborough not a Rick Perry fan

“Rick Perry, by the way – you know I called him a dime store conservative several weeks ago,” Scarborough said. “We have these in the South. People that were Democrats – the Democrats’ Democrats, while Democrats were in charge of the South. And then when Republicans became in charge, we saw this happen. They all went from being liberal to conservative. Here is a guy that ran Al Gore’s campaign in 1988. Now I was a registered Democrat like most people in the South, but I was always conservative. This guy runs Al Gore’s campaign and then he writes a letter to Hillary Clinton in 1993 – a love letter: ‘Hi Hillary, I’m behind you.’ And this is what happens. You elect people like this and he’s not a real conservative.”…

“I’ll tell you, I was around in 1993,” he continued. “I ran in ’94 because of what happened in 1993. You can’t be, at his age for HillaryCare in 1993 and magically become ‘the tea party – let’s succeed from the union. Let’s do this, let’s – this happens all the time. You go across the Southeast and there are dime store conservatives from Texas down to south Florida that, seriously, whoever is in power at the time, they are the ones right out front. For Rick Perry to say he’s a small government tea party man, ‘you know what, doggone it, let’s succeed from the union and Social Security’s a Ponzi scheme, let’s shut down FEMA and in 1993′ when the guy was in his 50s or however old he was, he was for HillaryCare?”
