Surprisingly, members of the left-leaning MSNBC were heard chastising Democrat’s recent efforts. As the hosts of Morning Joe had a panel of guests to speak about Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s recent obsession with the Koch brothers, Joe Scarborough went on a little rant.
The Conservative host went of on Reid’s ever-increasingly frequent revisiting of the Koch brothers and how unfair it is, in the way they spend all their money on Republicans. Speaking about the influence the Koch brothers have on swing states and the effort they have been making to gain Republican votes through commercials, the panel began their less than fruitful conversations.
Starting out was NBC’s Chuck Todd who relayed the need for Democratic equivalent. Saying though that that isn’t really a reality, Democrats have resorted to more petty tactics in order to, “try to make that Senator, or that Senate candidate, own that issue and look like they’re being bought, or quid pro quo . . . make their money — or at least make associating with them — a tiny bit problematic.”
He concluded however that, “We’ll see if it works. I think it’s a tough argument to make,” Todd added. “I don’t think voters make those connections very well. But I’m just telling you what the strategy is.”
Not able to contain himself anymore to the ridiculousness circulating conversations, Scarborough butted in by saying, “Yeah, yeah, I understand the strategy, I just — it’s the stupidest strategy I ever heard. I’m reminded of what George W. Bush said to [former CIA official] George Tenet when he came in and gave him his WMD intel. ‘Is that all you got? Is that the best you got?”
Continue the well founded rant, Scarborough added, “If somebody thinks a voter in Raleigh, North Carolina that’s out of work gives a damn about who’s financing 30-second ads, they are too stupid to be in politics.” Expressing the utter baffling experience Reid has graced the world with, he further said, “In fact, I would say they are too stupid to be even trusted with common household appliances — say a blender — because they might accidentally stick their face in there and get it chopped off. I mean, you have to be really stupid to think that this is going to work.”
Concluding his feelings, Scarborough lastly mentioned, “It’s stunning to me that a Senate majority leader, holding George Mitchell’s spot or Bob Dole’s spot, would be doing this instead of some angry, crafting senator from the South — ‘Hey, go out there and throw some red meat out there. That’s the way it used to be done. I just find it shocking that you have the Senate majority leader using these McCarthyite terms like ‘un-American,’ and no senator on the Democratic side is the least bit uneasy about it.”
Harry Reid’s recent talking points on the Koch brothers has become the center of its own controversy lately. As the seemingly addicted Democratic Senate Majority Leader spouts on and on about the trivial manner, instead of being taken seriously, he’s become the butt of many jokes.
